Good things happen in threes

As journalists we cover a lot of news. Not all the news is good news, so it is nice when we photograph happy events. Over the weekend, I was able to cover three positive stories. The first was a story on puppy fostering. Who doesn’t like puppies? The second was a story on an Oklahoma soldier who was on a 10-day leave from Afghanistan to see his 5-day old baby. Finally on Saturday, I covered an OU alumni basketball game and took pictures of 84 year old Keith Miller warming up on the court along with other alumni. Miller was on the OU basketball team from 1948 to 1950.  It was on his bucket list to suit up for the Sooners once again.
