Our Best Picture

For a very long time now, I have been looking for an old picture of me and Katie.  Shot on the day we made our last movie together, I remember that it was a great take of the both of us.  I was making a movie and spending the day with my dog (there is a certain smile of mine that comes with that), and she looked happy and content.  I searched high and low, but I could not find it.  Especially after Katie died, I tore this house apart looking for it.  I knew in the back of my head that there was a missing memory card, but I couldn’t find it anywhere, so I finally gave up – assuming that it would either show up at some point down the line or that this picture had been erased from one of the memory cards I did have.  One of these ideas was just confirmed.

About 20 minutes ago (accounting for some log in issues I was having), I found a memory card.  I’ve been cleaning up the home office where my editing computer is, and under a stack of papers sat one little memory card.  I gasped.  Air literally passed through my opened mouth in a moment of complete surprise, and my eyes widened.  I picked it up and looked at it, and it was a style of card I hadn’t seen in quite some time.  After realizing that this might actually be the one, my eyes started to water.  It’s just a picture, and not a particularly amazing one – but it meant alot to me.  A heck of alot.  This was the picture I mentioned in one of my blogs after she died, the one I wanted to originally use with my first post announcing her passing, and now I have it (along with a few others that have all been added to the Gallery).  Don’t expect to be blown away by it’s photographic wonder – it’s just a picture of a guy and his dog.  For me, though, it’s a picture of me and my best friend at our finest.

I sure miss the heck out of that mutt. 🙂
