Photos of Ellie in her Halloween costume, a few days late as she was under the weather on Halloween — next year, we trick-or-treat twice.

Victoria BC, 3 – 5 September 2005

Well, so there’s a little bit of victoria, but mostly a pregnant Tracy, voted best-looking pregnant woman, ever. By me, and three formerly pregnant women she’s met! And that counts.


Pictures from Parrotstock, home of the 2005 Ortlieb family reunion. My Uncle Bill is the bass player for the band The Rock-A-Fellas, and played Friday night in lovely Myrtle Beach, SC.
