March 30, 2014


Clearly, Jinx doesn't approve of what we're watching! I wonder what she's going to insist we watch?


Feet felt random to me :)


This was the most random thing that has happened to me, well, maybe ever! I don't know if you saw on FB but yesterday we went downtown and went to a place I haven't been to in a long time for hot chocolate and in their window was my photograph! It was also on their tables inside. I knew right away it was my photo but Reg wanted me to make sure before I said anything. I was right. I am mad they did it but wonder at the odds of me discovering it? I took this photograph at least a year ago and had no plans to go back to this spot. I of course am going to write to the owner to figure out what's going on but still, totally RANDOM!

TOTALLY random! LOL. I have to ask, did you make those socks Shannon.

Shannon said...

Wow, that's wild that it's your photograph Suzie. I guess the first thing could be to simply ask them about it. What a shocker though, but... flattering too, I hope a little bit, that it was so good. I hope you can figure out a good resolution there - maybe they'll pay you for it!

Yep, I made those socks. In fact, they were the first socks I made and now are worn thru at the heels so I have to figure out if I will fix or repurpose them.

I love the socks, Shannon! They look awesome. And hey, every day is a good day for random feet!

Suzie, that picture is awesome. I thought you were showing us a cover of a book! It must have been shocking to see it displayed like that. Perhaps there's a way to make the most of this, like ask for credit and your website to be displayed along with the photo, like how artists have work up at coffee shops. Maybe this could be the beginning of a new kind of opportunity, even though I totally understand that you're upset about them doing it without permission.

I wasn't going to go with a late add but I had this awesome random shot of Jinx and just had to include it!

Suzie Ridler said...

Shannon, those socks rock! I am so impressed. I hope you can still use them in some way, they are historical socks.

Yes, the situation with my photo is quite complicated. I actually just got accepted by a photo stock company to sell my photos (and lose copyright) and have been feeling weird about it but when I saw this photo I figured, well, I could have been paid for that.

At our place we would say to Jinx, "She's got the power!!!"

Love the late add Jamie! Jinx is in control, mew!
