So this is Flash... my friend Mark Patterson's newest "offspring."
My friend Amanda at the Magic Kingdom. Amanda and I met at the Travis County Attorneys Office when I was a baby prosecutor and she was a victim-witness coordinator. She saved my sanity many a time. Now she's a killer real estate agent.
Amanda and her husband Ryan. Ryan is an APD officer on the DWI task force, and one of the best in the state. He's also a DRE (Drug Recognition Expert) and he teaches law enforcement all over Texas.
This is Mark Patterson, "daddy" of Flash, on his splendid mare Desi. She's a great eventer.
And this is my wonderful little house. She's on the National Historic Register and is over 120 years old.
This is my dear friend Kaspar Wenstrup, a photojournalist from Denmark, in Panama on assignment. We met in northern Ireland, summer of 1998, and now I get to live my photojournalism fantasies vicariously through him.
And this is Stephanie Kelley and her daughter Kennedy. I met Stephanie when I was dating Drew, and we've stayed friends ever since. She's studying nursing in Indiana now. Steph has the most beautiful, tender, affectionate face!
