Mary is my life mentor. As my boss (she hated being called my boss) at my last job, she patiently guided me into the world of practical environmental outreach. Needless to say, I miss her and our trust third musketeer, Kelly, quite a bit.
Last month, Mary had to have surgery to remove a fibroid. She came out of it just fine - She named the fibroid Ruprecht and had a "coming out" party for him. At her party, we just happened to have all the employees past and present of Boone County Solid Waste and opted to snap this family picture of us all.

The party was at Kelly's. This is her super precious Miniature Pinscher, Princess.
She's awfully friendly.

The next day, my family took a little trip to the Dayton Art Institute as an early celebration of my birthday (it was August 6). So fun! And a fine looking family, too, if I do say so myself.
