on the calendar

My brother-in-law, Mr. Beaver Mtn, is getting his Masters degree on Friday, and then he will take my sister and move Washington D.C. where he's got some fancy-shmancy job waiting for him.

I am not very happy about it.

But, to celebrate Mr. Beaver Mtn's accomplishment, I have been busy whipping up a little something for him -- with the help of my best friend, Photoshop, and a groovy new program my brother hooked me up with -- Inkscape. Here's a little preview of what I've been working on:

Several years ago, at a Beaver Mountain Ski Resort banquet (where my brother-in-law worked as a ski instructor), he was officially awarded the title "Mr. Beaver Mountain". I've always felt that a title like that should come with a calendar -- you know, like Miss Makita, etc. So, I'm finally getting around to making the unofficial one. Don't worry, the pictures are all from my sister and very G-rated -- there's not a bikini or six pack to be seen.

Anyway. It's just fun to have a reason to mess around with Photoshop for hours on end. I hope the end result is what I have in mind. I'm taking it to the printers tomorrow. Wish me luck . . .

Very clever, I love it. But how come you are so clever, it isn't fair.

Well...I think the cat is out of the bag. All I can say is that it's about time Mr. Beaver Mountain got a calendar!
