I am going to have a photo published in a magazine.  It is not confirmed but I may be on the cover.  The magazine is called Owl.  It is a kids magazine that has been publishing since the 1970's. 

My photo was actually submitted by the daughter of friends of ours.  She is in the photo with my two.  The theme was "summer fun". 

The magazine contacted me and cried poor but still offered me $100. 

This is a fairly small version of the photo.

Excellent news Don. $100 is a nice little bonus.

Thanks everyone.  I am officially the "spotter" in the back of the boat.  I often will take 200 or more photos while doing that to catch ones like this.

Thanks.  I will take a photo or scan the cover once it is out.  It should be soon.
