I am doing my Vico 391 photo story on the town of McArthur. I'm not sure how it's going so far. I need more story for my story.

Hotel McArthur.

Brendan Stiltner plays on the monkey bars at a playground near the grade school in McArthur.

Flat tires.

Remember When... antique store.

The Harvest Dessert Musicale. Basically a talent show for the entire town.

Rosalie Rinehart performs a "comedic pantomime" to the song, 'Mama Yo Quero'. Before the show, I heard so much about the woman who would be dressing up like Carmen Miranda and performing. The entire place roared with laughter throughout the whole performance. In the middle of the skit, she took the banana out of her hat and ate half of it then put the other half in her shirt.

Dodging Tree Branches

This is what we had to drive through to get back to Athens that weekend. As Faye and I were driving to go have lunch with Jill, we drove past this huge tree that must have JUST fallen onto this woman's house. I had to stop, so Faye took my mini van and headed to lunch without me. I felt really proud of myself for stopping, because I know that a year ago I would have driven past and then thought all day about how I should have stopped at that house, why didn't I stop at that house!? But this time I actually did. Not the most creative stuff I've ever done, but I hate that feeling when I let a photo op pass me by and I was able to turn these in for my feature assignment.

Two patrons of the Wright Memorial Public Library run against the wind and around fallen tree branches to get to the library. Multiple people were denied access to the library because the power was out and the electronic doors were unable to be opened.

Liz Markus looks up at the tree that failed to hold a large branch up in the strong winds that hit Dayton as Robert Crane uses his cell phone to try to get help getting the branch removed. Both are juniors at The University of Dayton.

Away from Athens

The past weekend was pretty exciting. Faye has tagged it as "a weekend for the books". It started out on Saturday driving to Columbus to attend the green jobs rally for Power Vote with other Sierra Student Coalition members. A full tank of gas and multiple confused text messages and phone calls later, we got there late and walked into a room full of fliers, poster supplies, markers and empty chairs. We were bummed.

Then we headed off to Dayton and ran into a very sad excuse for a playground at a TA stop to spend even more money that I don't have, on gasoline (I usually don't drive this much and use this much gas, I swear).

Finally getting to Faye's was a relief. She has one of the coolest houses ever. Everything is aged and collected from all over the place. I loved it.

Then we dodged falling tree branches on the way home on Sunday. But that's a post for another day.

Ten images? Is that too much for one post? It was a good weekend, what can I say...

My apologies for not posting more on Scotland. I've been slightly overwhelmed and without tools to get the job done.
