Ok, admit it. We are 15 days from Christmas and you still have some shopping to do for your more, um…challenging giftees on your list. Well I am here to make your problem disappear. Click on the button below, and a signed copy of my book, US Highway 89, will be flying out the door into your recipient’s waiting hands.
People who need a Highway 89 book from you:
- your father-in-law who loves to give you advice. Maybe he’ll take a long trip. A very long trip.
- your sister’s deadbeat boyfriend whose name you drew in the gift exchange. Yeah, he probably can’t read, but he’ll like the pictures of the bikers.
- Aunt Sadie and Uncle Hollis. He’s still talking about his 56 Chevy convertible that he drove on their first date. She’ll read it to him in the car on the way home from your Christmas feast.
Sounds like a good plan, but there’s not a moment to waste if you want it there by Christmas. We don’t have time to load books onto Santa’s sleigh (or restock the Amazon.com distribution centers). You can pick up a copy at the Utah and Montana Costco warehouses while they last.
Or I can ship this thoughtful gift out for you, priority mail, no additional charge. That’s right: signed, sealed and delivered in time for Christmas if you order this week. Maybe even as late as Tuesday next, but why wait? Let’s get this gift-shopping taken care of so you can relax and enjoy a wassail, whatever that is.
Christmas special for 2010: $24.95, and I pay the $5 shipping (US addresses only). Add instructions if you want me to inscribe something special. Click on the Paypal button and cross that name off your list.
It is hard to believe that we have been photowalking for four Christmases, but my Lightroom archive tells me it is so. We are gathering at 7 pm on Thursday, December 16 at the statue at South Temple and Main (same as last year, take a look at the photo decorating the Flickr post). This is one of our most popular events each year and always gets me into the holiday mood. And cold. It will probably drop into the mid-20s while we are photographing, so bring those chemical handwarmers, mitt-top gloves, hat and cable release. Remember: warm head, hands and feet and the rest of you is happy.
Hope to see you there, warm, happy and ready to make some fun photos. Watch the Flickr stream for last-minute updates.
