Down Country Roads Calendar publishes one of my photos!

Just call him Mr. January.  We have been having alot of fun with this the last few weeks. (yeah I said weeks, we have known about this for awhile but I have been too busy to post about it, plus I had to wait until we were done playing a trick on the girls at the Brems Co-op, inside joke but basically involves me digitally putting my dad’s head on a a HOT bodybuilder guy’s body).  Anyways…. My favorite photo so far of my dad in my “Project Dad” series was published in a national calendar. 

Here is what the cover looks like …


and when you open it up it looks like this…


So if you see my dad (aka Ed Jernas), make sure you call him Mr. January.  LOL
