Catherine Easton is a STAR!

Cathine Easton, who puts together our slideshows every month, is a STAR!

She recently emailed me to say:

I sent my Cardinal photo to CBC TV weather guy Ian Black because he has a “fun weather photo” file where he shows a couple of seasonal photos sent to him by viewers each night on his CBC TV Weather segment each night at 6pm & 10 pm.

RIVALS by Catherine Easton

Well, I got an email from Ian Black today & he said he was showing the photo this evening.  It was on the 6pm news & will be shown again on the 10 pm-11 pm TV News. 

I think I’m allowed to grin. 

Way to go Catherine!
