Cheers: to Kevin for setting up the amazing Jennifer Batten house party this Friday night. I can’t wait!
Bummer: to the poor guy who drove a brand new Saturn sports car off the end of a car carrier truck this afternoon, and forgot to extend the drive rails off the back! DOH! He realized what he had done when the car hit the ground nose first. This is the car:
Andy Batt just posted some of the “extra special” shots from the Best Buy shoot. This is my favorite. I call it Don’t Drink the Kool Aid. Note: these are for his personal portfolio and have nothing to do with Best Buy.
That will teach you to come to one of my parties! Ha!
You can see the rest of the photos on Andy’s website. Just scroll down to the bottom where it says “Modern Fairy Tale?”
This is what my left foot was doing this morning. Shooting for the Not Dead Yet movie poster.

I thought I posted this blog yesterday, but I think my Internet connection dropped before it actually posted.
Anyway, I spent 12 hours in the car with my three kids and Lili the Wonder Pug driving to our family cabin in Tahoe. We were coming across the Mt. Lassen Highway (44) from Redding (California) to Susanville when I saw something that looked like a large thunderhead.
Then we got closer and realized it was a wildfire.
We kept driving, wondering if we were going to have to turn around.
We got to the intersection of Highway 89 and 44, and 89 was closed.
We were one of the last cars to get through on Highway 44 before they closed that too.
Driving out of the fire.
