I received the following letter today out of the blue. These kinds of things are always welcome and never expected. A blast from the past after 12 years. here goes....

Michael Shedlock
Back in Spring of 1992 you approached my then girlfriend and I at Wyalusing St. Park in Wisconsin. We agreed to let you take our pictures. [mish notes: I positioned them sitting on the edge of a huge vertical drop on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. I like to add people to shots for a sense of scale and marketability].
So, after 12 years the pictures was finally published in the April 2004 Issue on page 49.

My wife was at the hospital emergency room while her brother was in surgery for cancer. She picked up an issue of Wisconsin Trails and after paging thru discovered that shot you took 12 years ago. It helped a whole nervous family get thru the day a lot better.......

(there is more but that is the gist of it). Of course they want a copy.
