Aunt Sara

I lost my dear Aunt Sara today.  A part of my heart went with her as she went through the gates of heaven.  This is a post I wrote about her 2 years ago.  I can hear her sweet voice now as she saw her family waiting for her.  I'm sure she is running and shouting - "Ooo wee! I'm finally home!"  Save a place for me at the table Aunt Sara.  I'll be there later on.

Hometown Photos

Here are a few pictures that I took when I participated in a Photo Walk in our downtown area.  I could have done this all day but it was 90 degrees outside at 9:00 in the morning in the middle of July.  I don't like to sweat....  I felt like my camera weighed at least 50 pounds by the time we finished the walking tour after 2-3 hours.  I would love to do this again in cooler weather.  I can always put on enough clothes to keep warm but I can't take off enough to get cool especially downtown!

Why? What was I thinking?

In cleaning out my pictures, I ran across a few that made me wonder - "What was I thinking when I took this picture?"

Callie and Sister Cat are looking at a baby mouse running around the bottom of the pail. Why in the world would I want a picture of this? At least I didn't take a picture of what happened next.......

No - I was not tipsy at the time.

Bless her heart! The duck on the left has a big cut on the top of her bill. The other duck looks like she is telling her to put some Neosporian and a Band-Aid on it to make it feel better!

Even the neighborhood dogs were tired of seeing all the campaign signs in May!

It's A New Year!

I archive my pictures from the previous year and burn them onto CDs each January. It takes me awhile since I take a lot of pictures - 12 CDs/one for each month.

Tonight I enjoyed looking back at some of my favorites that held a special memory. I thought I might share a few over the next several days.

Here are the first pictures that got me sidetracked -

Garth Brooks - need I say more......

He was wonderful! We had nosebleed seats at the top rail - 5 rows from the very top of Bridgestone Arena at the rail. 
They were fairly good seats since there was no one sitting in front of us to block our view to the bottom...... 
I slipped on the last step going to our seats in the dark and I thought I was going over the rail in the middle of 18,000 people! My fear of heights was really kicking my butt! 
I'm so glad I had a great zoom lens on my camera. I didn't stand up until it was time to go. 
My sister laughed at me - she knows I'm a chicken.....
Cluck! Cluck!
