News: Toad comes home...

Toad, released after a lunch break game of Go, has finally come home (after 663 days).

Contact: Toad spotted in Chicago, IL

Our  camera  was  given  to  us  by  a  houseguest.    We  took  our  picture  from  the  top  of  the  ferris  wheeel  at  Chicago's  Navy  Pier.    We  handed  toad  off  to  some  strangers  at  the  end  of  the  pier.    
Good  luck  Toad!!!

I  took  two  pictures.    oops.    One  was  right  after  I  got  it  from  Rick  (aka  Camera  daddy),  and  it  was  a  close  up  (sure  to  be  very  out  of  focus  and  overexposed)  of  a  few  empty  coffee  creamer  containers  sitting  on  the  table  at  The  Runcible  Spoon  in  Bloomington,  Indiana.    Later  I  forgot  about  the  "one  shot  per  person"  rule  and  took  a  picture  of  one  of  my  dogs,  "Pixel",  eating  her  breakfast.    I  was  gonna  send  the  camera  to  a  friend  near  Boston,  but  instead  took  it  Chicago  this  past  weekend,  and  gave  it  to  the  freinds  we  were  staying  with  (Kasey  and  Angela).    They  took  a  shot  from  the  top  of  the  big  ferris  wheel  on  Navy  Peer,  and  then  handed  it  off  to  strangers.    Hope  little  Toad  makes  it  back  home  someday!

Release: Toad set free in Bloomington, IN

Toad with a belly full of tea makes its way into the big scary world. Hopalong little feller....

A hundredth of a second here, a hundredth of a second there--even if you put them all end to end, they still only add up to one, two, perhaps three seconds, snatched from eternity. - Robert Doisneau
