Today’s Photo of the Day is courtesy of Old Mission Peninsula resident Kelly Miller and his adorable granddaughter Addison. I had stopped by Cory Holman’s Pumpkin Patch to take a few photos. They’ll be open through October and have pumpkins, gourds, cornstalks and decorative corn galore – including a ton (probably an actual ton or two) of giant pumpkins.

As Tim and I were just about to leave, someone arrived with an adorable little one to pick out some pumpkins, so I asked if they would mind if I took a photo for the Gazette. We got to talking, and I discovered that it was Kelly Miller and his granddaughter Addison.

Fresh out of college with a business degree in the 1980s, I worked for Kelly’s company, Miller Oil, in the geology and geophysical department. My bosses were Lew Murray (geologist) and John Clark (geophysicist), and I met some great friends there who I’m still in touch with today.

As with all things in my life, everything I’ve done has played an important role in the work that I do now with Old Mission Gazette and our online store, Old Mission Peninsula Store. At Miller Oil, I gained valuable experience in organizing and maintaining an office, project and time management, working with a variety of people, and problem-solving, among others.

I use all of those skills with my own business these days. A big thank you to Lew, John and Kelly for that experience, all of which has led me here, running an online newspaper about my beloved Old Mission Peninsula.

And Addison, I hope you had a great weekend filled with all sorts of Halloween activities. Sounded like a blast!

If you need pumpkins, you’ll find a huge variety at Cory Holman’s Pumpkin Patch – open now through the end of October. Read more about the Holman’s long history on the Old Mission Peninsula here. Happy Halloween!
