Dear Editor “Blogging 101”

Ozark Calendars Editor
Ozark, Ozarks

Dear Editor:

I have admired your beautiful calendars for years. In fact, since I was a child. Mother always bought your calendars. Year after year, one of your calendars hung on the wall in our modest little home out on the mountain. Mother’s gone now, and Papa, too.  I don’t live on the mountain anymore.
But I live close by. And I’ve become a photographer.

Many, many people have told me that my pictures would be good in calendars. I tend to agree. So I’ve prepared this portfolio to send to you in hopes that you will see how these pictures resemble the kind of pictures you always print on your calendars.









this is Mama Cat
she had two litters of cats
and she’s retired now







this here is Twister
I wanted to name him Storm
but Mister said no







this cat is Calvin
he likes to hunt and climb trees
he once caught a shrew







the brown goat, Copper,
loves to run on the hillside
in Ozark Mountains


So, Dear Editor, this is just a sample of my many pictures. If they appear to be to your liking, and if you should like to see more samples, it will be my pleasure to send them to you. And so, I will close now.

Yours truly,

a photographer in the Ozarks
