From kings to grooms and Luka in between

It's been a busy couple of days here that involved lots of picture-taking...

Thursday there was a retirement party for my boss, whom we thoroughly embarrassed for his 38 years of service with a cape and a crown and plenty of mostly-good-natured roasting... He's worked at social services for as long as I've been alive. Jeez.

Nice was the time to chat with coworkers without the pressures of ringing phones. This is my friend Anne who works in personnel and makes sure we all get paid on time and Cathy, one of my favorite people in the whole world; she and I used to work together, then she got promoted and I got promoted and now we don't see much of each other anymore.

My buddy Pete and I; we're neighbors and got to work together for a short time last summer while I was assigned to the homeless services unit. He was transferred to my building recently, so I stop by his desk a couple times a week to talk birds and photography.

On Halloween morning, there was a parade of trick-or-treaters through the office. Click for a peek at the Christmas tree costume - I love it! Note person at desk in background actually trying to work...

;-)

I had to bribe him for it, but Luka will do most anything for a Haloween treat!

Finally, last night, there was a nephew's wedding to photograph. My camera needs a few days off, I think.

Now to catch up with comments and all of your blogs...

Awww---look at that Luka, will you. So handsome! Even in bunny ears. And are your bunnies wearing Luka ears?
Love the Christmas tree costume--someone was being very creative. I do miss the office camaraderie--at my community college, we don't really bond the same way we did when I worked in an office with colleagues.

Wow. A picture of Laura? On Laura's blog? That's a rare occurance.
I stopped putting Nellie in costumes when she got big enough to wrestle me to the ground.
: )

Looks like fun ... that's a tough assignment you guys got and fun is good, eh??

Luka makes a good bunny now and then!

Looks like a fun couple of days.

I'm not sure any amount of Halloween treats would let me put rabbit ears on either of our dogs. What great photographs.

KGMom: Luka is much more cooperative than any of the bunnies are.

(Imagine that!)

I've found the same at the college where I teach... other than the occasional department meeting, we don't get to interact much with one another.

Susan: Ha! Bribery still works well with Luka, but then he's very motivated by cookies.

Rabbit's Guy: Yeah.

;-)

Jayne: He's pretty cute (and tolerant).

Cedrorum: Yeah... busy, too.

NCMountainWoman: Funny... I think of Goldens as easy to please.

Luka does not look happy. Maybe devil horns next Halloween.
