So many things to do when you spend the afternoon at the park, especially when you see it through the eyes of youngsters. They find fun things to do through imagination alone, like this young man who Brita Haapala says is whistling with an acorn shell. At first I thought maybe whistling through a blade of grass, but if you look closely you can see the acorn top held tightly in his hands. Speaking of hands, check out the big brotherly boost the little towheaded guy is getting for his drink of water. I love the expression on the older brother's face, like he's helping him take that sip, with remote control of the lips!

By the way, a couple of days ago an email went out to all registered Pasty Cam visitors, inviting them to vote on selections for the 2006 Pasty Cam Color Calendar. So far, hundreds of nominations have been received, and it's shaping up to be one of the nicest calendars Pasty Central has ever made. If you are not a registered visitor, you can still cast up to 12 votes in one message from a single email address to 2006Calendar@pasty.com. Then be watching for the new 2006 calendar to be available in November. Proceeds from the publication benefit Still Waters Assisted Living Community in Calumet.

I love seeing pictures of Brita's children - I feel like I'm the neighbor down the block watching their antics and seeing them grow. Keep them coming! Thank you.

You have alot of beautiful scenery in the UP but the pictures above show the real beauty in the UP. I'd like to thank Brita for spending time and teaching her children about the outdoors. She has given them a good head start on becoming healthy, happy adults.

The pictures of Brita's children remind me of their Dad. As I babysat him years ago, I can remember the looks. Keep the pictures coming as I don't get to see them that often anymore.

Not cold enough for a winter jacket tho.

We always enjoy seeing Britas' children too. They look so much like ours did they could be siblings or cousins! Now it's the same thing over with our grandchildren!

How come when I click on todays regular cam note button I get Thursdays page? The only way I get here is going thru "cam notes in the past 24 hrs."?

By Bob Tiura (Bobtiura) on Sunday, October 9, 2005 - 12:59 am:

I also got the Thursday page when clicking on the "button", but I got Saturday's page when I clicked on the picture. That never happened before.

By Richard Wieber (Dickingrayling) on Sunday, October 9, 2005 - 04:07 am:

I got the Thursday page, too. Then I clicked on "Oct" and chose Saturdays date.
