Another Photo Shoot with St. Peanut

There is no doubt that I am going to miss this little guy when I move next week, so when St. Peanut decided to spend a few minutes here with a friend yesterday afternoon and again this morning, I took lots of pictures. Many of the pictures are far from perfect, since he continues to challenge… Continue reading Another Photo Shoot with St. Peanut
