So, I’m standing here in the O’Reilly booth at PhotoPlus Expo, admiring Deke’s new book, trying to take a self portrait to post here to prove it’s real. Then this strange (but friendly looking) man approached asking if he could take my picture for his son. His last name was Stalker. I’m totally not kidding. Two of my colleagues were all, “No, don’t do it.” But I had a feeling. A feeling that a member of the dekeCommunity was involved somehow. Mr. Stalker, perhaps better if I call him Doug in this situation, called his son, who turned out to be dekeCommunitarian “jeff70.” We inhabitants of dekeDom have radar for these things. We spoke. It seemed legit. And here is the picture jeff70’s dad took of me holding proof that Deke’s book does in fact exist. And in stock today at Amazon.com.
What I particularly like about Doug’s portrait is that he manages to align the crown in the logo of the next booth over to sit upon my head, as is appropriate. Thanks, Doug. I’m Queen of dekeDom today!
