Whew! It’s Sunday night and I’m exhausted. What a week in DeKalb County! First, I got to jump into a golf cart with Dennis Quaid at Green Tree Golf Course, then I took an awesome picture of the tornado / funnel cloud / whatever it was, that got picked up on news stations from Channel 13 WREX TV, Channel 23 WIFR TV to Channel 5 WMAQ TV and Fox News Chicago. Tom Skilling (WGN) himself, ‘liked’ our pictures, including the one Mac made of me which does nothing for my reputation 😉
Saturday, we took my mom to see the Cruise Night Parade in downtown Sycamore. When we got home, a neat hot air balloon was over downtown DeKalb and I got a few shots with my great zoom lens. On Sunday, we took a whirlwind cruise around the (mostly South) County. Saw us some County Mounted Shooting, went through my old campground, Stone House Park, where they were finishing up ‘Peace Fest’, went and listened to some music at Somonauk Summer Fest and ended the day at the Bull Moose Bar & Grille in Sandwich.
