My neighbor, Sharon, is a Master Gardner, so her yard is a favorite place for me. She has blooming plants, interesting decorations and an unobstructed view of the mountains to the east. She also finds humor in the blonde girl, still in pajamas, wandering in her yard, taking photos at sunrise.
The nice people at the University of Arizona -Cooperative Extension Department contacted me recently and asked permission to use one of my cactus pictures for their brochure. They offered me a signed book on Arizona Insects by Carl Olson as compensation. I guess I should have kept the worm farm, I could have fed the worms to all the insects I can now identify. I, of course, said YES and promptly called and told Sharon the news.

Then I looked closer and there it was, in small print, "Photo by YumaBev". Photo credit was a bonus, it wasn't part of the deal.

So, now I guess I can add Photographer right after Humorist and Songwriter on a job application. Of course, no one will be able to read my hand-writing except a Doctor.
