We finally got to one of the Powwows that St Mary’s First Nation holds every year around Father’s Day. We should have brought a lot more money with us. I was impressed with the dancers, especially the happy youngsters.
I'm not sure whether the videographer was with any of the local media outlets or there on his own, but he looked like he knew what he was doing and This photo gives me an opportunity so show a wide shot of the field and the dancers.

Another photo of the dancers in the field. The drums were amplified through a sound system and filled the area with their infnectious beat. Nobody was complaining about that.

Connecting the new Cell phone to this computer was aggravating and extremely counter intuitive. I had to give up on following directions and after I thought about pitching the computer out the nearest window something ‘fell into place’ – and actually worked. I could then up or download the photos into iPhoto ( not the latest and most aggravating Mac ) – only after I quit out of iPhoto and started it up again. That reminded me of the jerk in a commercial for dishwashing snar who swears up and down the woman will never get her pot clean if she doesn’t scrub it first, then claims that he’d told her that her pot would come out perfectly clean and shiny without scrubbing – Give up – think about shooting a computer and of course it snaps to attention and completes the recently impossible task, and tries to smile at you and claim, “See – all you had to do was follow my directions and you would have no problem at all – ”  [ grrrrrrr……. ]

And the first photo I took with my new Cell phone was of Cathi trying to get out of the parking lot with a bunch of drivers lost in their own day dreams and visions of getting home in time for dinner.

Full sized the picture is so detailed you can see each raindrop that fell on the driver’s door within the last six months.
