Just Call Me Miss April

Texas Farm Bureau asked if they could use one of my pictures in their calendar this year. I was so excited. Couldn't turn them down.

The husband called today and said we'd received our copy. Of course, he said my picture was the best one in the calendar. But I think he's a little biased!

And he was also upset that they didn't put my name anywhere crediting me for the picture. I told him it was okay. I didn't expect them to.

But one thing did catch my eye. I had entered this picture in their yearly photo contest. I received honorable mention. The winner of the contest didn't even make the calendar. They may have won $100 but I got a whole month!

Totally cool cowgirl! CongRats!

But, you should mention to them that photo credits are standard.

We just received our Oregon FB calendar and each photo has a credit including a website if they have one.

I'm just rootin' for you to get you're name out there!!

Whew! When you said you were Miss April, I was expecting udder nekkid-ness!(you, not the cows!)
It would have been nice if they had given 'credit' where 'credit' is due though, just because it's YOU, and it would have been nice to have your name out there.
Now... tell me where I can get a copy of this calendar, okay? I WANT one! ;-)
Wooo Hooo for Yooo!

Thats a great credit Miss! Of course you can use that anytime you get any one saying you are not a professional- having a picture in a calendar ( not of your own making ) makes you a pro!
And your niece is a beauty!
Your parents are good lookin' too!

Who needs $100 when you got a whole month?! I am surprised that they didn't credit you for the picture. I know on calendars around here they always have the credits on them!
