Operation Smile's World Journey of Smiles Photo Exhibit. NYC. 28 Feb. 08.

*My First NYC Exhibit...
It was really something special to attend the opening reception of Operation Smile's - World Journey of Smiles Photo Exhibit opening in the city on Thursday evening. Op Smile means mountains to me, and it was very, very good to see old friends & colleagues, and meet some new ones. *(Not to mention wearing a favorite suit & looking like a "grown up" for the night...) Thanks so much to all the fine people in Norfolk, VA at Op Smile who've offered me all the wonderful international missions through the years: Founders Bill & Kathy Magee, Lisa Jardanhazy, Leila Hemaiden, Katherine Taylor & Marc Ascher. You all do exceptional work and I am always honored & humbled to get your call for another mission...
