|"SERIOUSLY?!?! Ken has BOXES in here?!?"|
|"Yeah, right. Nice floor. Whatever."|
|"How's this? Is the lighting OK? Is my collar straight?"|
"Perfect, Cam! Perfect!"
|"OK, I'm ready for my closeup. ... and that treat you're holding."|
|"Hey! What are you two doing? Did I hear the word 'treat'?"|
|"I hope you have more treats, Mom!"|
"Wait - let me get into position!"
"Hey, Cam! Hey, Cam! Hey, Cam!!!"
|"Why ... yes. Yes, I am."|
|"I can see for miles! Or at least almost to Chelsea the Border Collie's house."|
|"I believe I've found a new favorite hangout!"|
|Maggie and me!|
|Maggie and me in pencil!|
|Maggie and me in a colored pencil sketch!|
|"Filler up, Mom!"|
|Maggie and me|
|"I thought that was it! What's this, Cam?"|
"She learned how to do her own Orton Effect. I thought this would be a good closer."
|"Ha-looooo? Is anyone there?"|
|"Can you see the Sedum?"|
|"This Glowing Dream Echinacea looks OK! OOH! A Bumble Bee! Hello, Mr. Bee!"|
|"They still smell nice!"|
|"Let's head for the shade!"|
|"This is a lovely spot to stop and contemplate important things. |
You know ...
... important things like if I'll get a treat for this great tour,
how long until lunch time,
if Mags and I can get a nap in this afternoon ... stuff like that!"
|Me, off on a backyard adventure!|
|"We better step it up, Mom. We might have rain coming!"|
|"Is anybody coming, Cam?"|
"I don't think so."
|"This makes us rock stars!"|
"Cool. I get to be the lead singer!"
|"I love these hills!"|
"So do I, Maggie!"
|"We've got the place to ourselves!"|
|"What are you thinking, Cam?"|
"You know what I'm thinking, you little crazed River Otter!"
"HA ROO to you!"
|"In here! Greetings!"|
|"Maggie isn't getting treats, is she?"|
"No, Cam. Just a box."
"How can you say 'just' a box?"
|"I don't get it, Mom."|
"Whatever makes her happy, Cam. Whatever makes her happy."
"How 'bout a little help over here? My box is collapsing."
