Venus story from Amelia Island

My trumpet teacher told us in class today he went to the Amelia Island, and to prove it, he showed us this fantastic picture of him with Venus. It was ON THE COURT. You could see the opponent in the bacckground! We asked him how he got it and he said when he wanted a pic of Vee, she saw him and had the security guard bring him over. They got to talking while the security guard figured out the camera, andf it turned out they had had the same martial arts instructor!

Then, can you believe it, the guard drops his camera!?!? He was really upset. But Venus pulls a camera out of HER bag, has the guard use HER camera to take the picture. And get this. SHe GIVES my trumpet teacher her camera! GIVES! He had it with him. It had shots of a lot of players in it. I'm trying to convince him to give me copies, but the guy is like on Cloud Nine, now. I think, if he wasn't like a million years old, he'd try to date Venus now. Anyway he's a HUGE fan now. Says she's nicest, sweetest, friendliest player he'd ever met.

Then again, the story IS secondhand, so who knows if it's true. Maybe he just bought a new camera. Don't know how he got those inside-the-locker-room pics though.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

I've always had you down as more of a pianist than a trumpeter, Volcana.

Probably true probably not, but I THINK it´s very unlikely to see Venus wasting her time taking pictures of other players.

Nice story but let's see those pics!!
