Thea donates blood. It’s one of the reasons that I have a closet full of OBI tee shirts. The last tee that she got me was promoting OSU. That’s the one that I’m going to wear tomorrow as my halloween outfit. In the course of giving, she’s also scored movie tickets and now Zoo tickets. Those who know her could hardly believe that she would accept tickets to be outside all day, much less use them. But she enjoyed the Oregon Zoo earlier in the year and the Albuquerque Zoo last year. I set her up with my Nikon D200 and 70-300vr lens. It was heavier than the 18-105vr that she usually takes. But even she agreed that the better pictures were worth it. If you want to see her pictures, you’ll have to bug her or visit her office. The only place she puts them is on a digital photo frame on her office desk.
