A bartender is sitting behind the bar on a typical day when the door bursts open and in come four exuberant blondes.
They come up to the bar, order five bottles of champagne and ten glasses, take their order over and sit down at a large table. The corks are popped, the glasses are filled and they begin toasting and chanting. 51 days, 51 days, 51 days
Soon, three more blondes arrive, take up their drinks and the chanting grows. 51 days, 51 days, 51 days.
Two more blondes show up and soon their voices are joined in raising the roof. 51 days, 51 days, 51 days.
Finally, the tenth blonde comes in with a picture under her arm. She walks over to the table, sets the picture in the middle and the table erupts.
Up jump the others, they begin dancing around the table, exchanging high fives, all the while chanting 51 days, 51 days, 51 days.
The bartender can’t contain his curiosity any longer, so he walks over to the table.
There in the center is a beautifully framed child’s puzzle of the “Cookie Monster.”
When the frenzy dies down a little bit, the bartender asks one of the blondes. “What’s all the chanting and celebration about?”
The blonde who brought in the picture pipes up, “Everyone thinks that blondes are dumb and they make fun of us, so we decided to set the record straight.
Ten of us got together, bought that puzzle and put it together.
The side of the box said 2-4 years, but we put it together in 51 days'”.
Growing up on a dairy farm in southeastern Indiana, Gary traveled very little until midlife, when the opportunity became available to him.
Grabbing his camera and a bag full of equipment, he began his vision quest traveling to most areas of the United States and several countries abroad.
Along the way, he collected several thousand photographs that he wants to share with everyone.
Gary decided the best way to accomplish his goal was to publish photo documentaries on the various areas of the world he has visited.
What will follow will be several photography books, who knows how many will wind up in his collection.
