Miranda asked me to take pictures, but I totally fell down on the job. It was okay, though: plenty of people had their cameras poised. I hope someone got the beautifully appointed arbor that Tim built, draped with white and sporting a large spray of white flowers. And Miranda's bouquet, which featured dried flowers, supplemented by a few turkey feathers. Here's one decent shot I managed to capture. She looked stunning. But then, she typically does. Even when she's grubby after a SAR mission.
Here are a few other photos I've taken of Miranda over the years. She's lovely, and although we don't see much of each other lately, for various reasons, I'm so glad to count her as a friend.
|Miranda is a search dog handler, and her |
amazing border collie Marcy specializes
in human remains; occasionally Miranda
scores some interesting stuff to train with.
|Marcy when she was still a pup, in training (2008). She's|
still working hard—in fact, Miranda and Marcy are
about to set off on what might be the adventure of a lifetime:
searching for the possible remains of Amelia Earhart.
Yeah, they're that good.
|With her now departed search dog Izzy—being silly|
|Miranda makes slacklining look easy. (It's not.)|
|That's Tim behind her. I figured I should include |
a picture of Tim here too . . .
|Okay. Here's a better one.|
|At a ropes training. With our now–team leader Jesse.|
A couple of goofs :-)
