Even though the weather is fantastic I didn't get much done today, so I will give you something to laugh about....Levi and a few of his friends have been working on taking their senior photos themselves and this is one of his top picks....

.....and then later in the newspaper's police blotter....


  1. That is SO funny! Nice work to Levi on making the blotter!

  2. awesome Levi! - Nome

  3. Do I recognize that chair?? ....When you started collecting amusing police blotters did it ever occur to you that there may be one about your son? Anyway, Levi, you did get called a "man" out of the whole deal!!! Evonne
