On The Road . The Bismarck Edition

The Otis & James Caravan of Love Tour ’05 pulled out of Minot for a rare escape this weekend, the reason being a visit to our new friends at Ralph Engelstad Arena, in the lovely city of Grand Forks, ND!

We had a great time, as we were joined by our assistant (you can call her simply…helper) Elise for the occasion (you can see her very ‘tired’ eye and a relatively annoyed kitty here), and we also had the great pleasure of working with some great staff at The Ralph (Lance, Sommer and all the rest), and let’s all give a very very big O&J shout out to our super-deluxe-new-friend Kelly, for being such a great host to our little band of photo-graphers! And as long as we are giving some mad props, let’s throw some down at Super-Britt, for keeping life at the studio going while the Caravan of Love has meandered through the state. It is not Otis & James that makes the business, it is those around us that make it all so sweet!!

Well, the hour is getting late – we’ve since moved on to Bismarck, where we will be meeting some of our Bismarck Buddies (this is you, Renae, et.al), and we must be turning in. But before we close the book on another day, let’s take a moment to look at some pretting colors and shapes from the weekend – Enjoy!

I'm cheese. Velveeta, specifically.


  1. Okay, I’m a little scared of the “caravan of love” comment… sounds like something I may have been conceived in. Yikes! (refer to the new Honda Odyssey commercial for a full tutorial). Thanks for the props, but not necessary.

  2. As always the pictures are great (Matt’s head is growing as I speak). If they Engelstad does not buy them I will…I can see them hanging in my office and imagine the stories that would be told of the arena that I would claim to be at my home…next to that I can hang the picture of the toy cars in your studio and say they are in my drive way. It would be pimp…

    I wanna help too! 🙂
