I finally remembered to take a picture of the print our folks gave us.

For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, you can read about it here. For those of you who don't want to read about it, I will explain briefly...

Mom and dad gave us a digital recreation of the sky the night of our wedding. It is the exact star map and new moon shown August 24th, 2002. And there was some star stuff going on that night. The print reads,

"A brilliant gibbous moon rises into the summer night with the stars of Pisces. Perseus, the hero, and Andromeda, the princess, shine together in the mid sky. Polaris marks North in Ursa Minor."

The hero and the princess - How romantic and appropiate.

So anyway, here it is -

And a close up -

Looks just like a real photograph, eh? (It does, really. Any pixeling you see in this image is a result of blogger quality.) The print was created by a company I believe is called Indigo Prints (but I have to double check that too). Mom gave them the date she wanted to recreate and location of Chain Saw Hill, emphasizing that it is in the country. Indigo was able to find out exactly what was in the sky that night and created tree tops to duplicate the farm land. It's an amazing gift, very personal and unique. I would recommend it to anyone looking for something special to give regarding a important date in time.

Next, we have furry babies....

Because what post is complete without furry babies?

And here you can see that Salem has finally given in to the kitten being part of the family. We're still working on Widgeon. She's going to take some persuading.

Well thats it for now, but you know me and I'm just full of crap to blog about. So check back later, I'm sure something else will be up.
