1st Photography Class

Last night was the 1st night of our 13 week photography class.

So Susy & I are sitting in the car because it's pouring outside and the school is still locked. Susy's cell phone rings and when she answers is there's nothing on the other end and it says "call lost". Well, she knows it's her hubby, Phil cause of the caller ID, but she can't hear anything. Ok, so the phone rings 2 more times and she still can't hear anything!!! She tries calling him back and it goes straight to voice mail.....Weird... About 5 mins later she gets a call from her mom. All I hear on her end is "Oh no....OMG! Is he on his way to the hospital?"

Phil is a lighting designer and he donates his time once a year to the high school that he graduated from for their annual Pop Show. Well, yesterday he was loading the equipment back in to the truck while it was pouring rain and slipped on this metal cover on the sidewalk that houses underground electrical stuff or something like that. Well, because of the rain the metal was really slick and he fell really hard and he fractured his hand and his phone landed in the gutter and was floating in the water....That would be why the phone kept cutting out!! Argh...

So, the poor guy drove himself home to change his wet clothes from the rain and the fall all the while in excruciating pain!! Susy talked to him for a min. and he told her to stay and take the class. There was nothing she could do and he was going to probably have to sit in the hospital for about the same time as the class was and he was right (3hrs). He called Susy from the hospital about 5 min. before our class ended. She needed to drive the car home because he couldn't drive.

I drove Susy over to the hospital after the class so that she could drive Phil home. They put him in a temporary cast and loaded him up with pain killers. Oh, and of course it's his right hand and he's right handed!!! Also....He's a drummer and has a gig he's playing in 2 days.....

So, back to the photography class..... So far, so good.... It was the 1st class, so it was mostly questions and answers with a few other things thrown in there. Our 1st assignment is to take outdoor photographs of animals.
