Each Friday, I open the brag basket as a fun place to give someone a pat on the back, brag, or promote yourself and your projects.
This week,we’re giving bonus points if you can work the number 8 into your brag! (Yeah, I know it’s silly. Get creative.) I won’t be here to cheer you on, so it’s up to you to cheer for each other. So if you don’t like bragging, why not jump in to offer some encouragement? Thanks!
You can brag on a friend, your own project, yourself, others, anything! You don’t need special permission or anything. Just leave a comment right here. There’s no deadline, so you can brag anytime during the weekend, and I’ll open a fresh Brag Basket each Friday.

I want to REALLY BRAG on the “Picture My Weekend” photography show and workshop in Alva, Oklahoma last weekend (August 1-2) at the historic Runnymede Hotel.
We had at least EIGHT meetings to plan the event, with about EIGHT people involved in making it happen (well, probably more than that, more like EIGHT plus EIGHT).
We had SIXTY photographers attend – they brought about 165 photos for the show – and at least 125 folks attended the show, which featured the “Max Ridgway Trio” and a marvelous reception hosted by “The Runnymede Ladies.”
Photographers attended from as far away as Vici to the west, Medford to the east, and as far south as Oklahoma City. Other towns sending their photographic enthusiasts included Alva, Aline, Cherokee, Jet, Enid, Mooreland, Buffalo, Waynoka, Kingfisher, Isabella, and Woodward (and maybe others).
Mike Klemme, Jim Richey, Cody Dopps, and Jim Apel provided their expertise as our ‘facilitators’ – and Mike Klemme’s presentation at the end of the day was quite an inspiring send-off, with everyone asking “Are we going to do this again next year?”
Yes, we’ll do it again next year! And we’ll make every effort NOT to host it on the hottest day of the summer!
Rod, I heard wonderful things about the show and workshop from several people. Congratulations to everyone involved and thank you, Rod, for bragging about it.
