Foot Traffic

  • Post-race thoughts on Fort4Fitness
    The air was cool and a chill traveled up my bare legs as I took that step out the door. A pit was in my stomach, churning. I sauntered to the starting point, giving my GPS watch time to find a satellite.

    "There was a witch, in Williams-Woodland," my husband said. "Don't you remember her?" My reply was a blank stare.
  • In the bag
    I have my number - 14182. I have my shirt ... and luggage tag, magnet, pen, requisite goodies. I also have a coupon for a $1 drink at Parkview Field after the race tomorrow. Note to self:

Today's feature photo was at the Whitley County Historical Museum's Civil War Camp. In all the years I have worked here, I have never covered anything at this museum. I am really pleased that I was able to cover their camp.

It had been raining all day, but had just stopped raining when I showed up. The campers were heading outside for drill practice. Later they danced the Virginia reel. They were having fun so I tried to show this in the photo.
