I have a beautiful 4 year old little girl.

You are just going to have to trust me on that, because she has a strange affliction that is hereditary.

The affliction is “not being able to be in front of a camera without being compelled to make the strangest face that you can.” This runs through my family in my gene pool.

It can’t be stopped and asking the afflicted one to stop will just make it worse.

Trust me. So you want to know why I have been out in my studio so much practicing….this is what I have to work with. How can someone be expected to work in these conditions??

Even my sister is afflicted. I literally have hundreds of pictures of my sister this way. I have another several hundred of my dad. My memories of my family when I look back through the scrapbook are going to be of fish lips, crossed eyes, lizard tongues and monster mouths.

It’s a curse I tell ya…a family curse.

I leave you with my favorite picture from the past week.. What do you do when you have to walk away from a good book?

Dog ear the page, of course.
