I had promised a give-a-way. I still promise. Unfortunately I didn't get my act together. So pay attention and put your creativity hat on. Hopefully by Saturday evening I will post a "Thank You Give-A-Way" for allowing me to be creative, having fun and venting at times. Appreciation isn't even a good enough word to describe how I feel for my new friends!!
REMEMBER: STAY TUNED!!
I read a post from Blue Ridge Gal. She opened her 5th folder to find the 5th picture (something like that anyway) and posted for us to see. Hers was darling. Baby feet. Can it get any better than that?
A few years ago I scanned some pictures of an ice storm I had taken with my old 35mm. I believe this took place in January, 2001. (MY, how times have changed since that year!!) There was a sweet little old lady who lived next door. Fortunately she didn't have to see this sight. She suffered from Alzheimers and was placed in a special home. The two trees you see above were her favorite things about her place. They were twin Bradford Pear Trees. In the spring they were absolutely beautiful. She enjoyed sitting on her porch and walking around her yard admiring these two beauties.
The best way I can describe it is: it looked like God just dropped a bomb on each tree simultaneously. I would have loved to have seen the view from above.
As an afterthought I decided to show you this picture of a bunny I made out of wood. He tuffed it through the ice. I wish I had put him on first so you could click on him and see how thick the ice embraced him. That's a very sad redbud in the background.
Brace yourself. The next picture is one I took yesterday. St. Paddy's Day as you recall. It's my very own leprachaun named hubby. He looks a little surpised here. I hate that about digital cameras. They don't shoot exactly when you want them to. That's Reynaldo checking out those green Nikes. He took a little ribbing about not being in the traditional "Cardinal" Red. As he said, and I quote, "As long as it has St. Louis Cardinals on it, I don't give a damn what color it is". Remember, I told you he's a die hard. I wish I had a dime for every time I heard, "Lisa, did you not help hubby dress this morning?" He left early yesterday to go golfing. It was a little more put together with his golf shorts. Not really, but I told him so. heeheehee.
One more blurb. Hubby has taught Reynaldo to fetch. It's the sweetest thing to watch this cat run wild to find that little mouse and return slowly and drop it so the hubby will throw it again. he did this about 25 times last night before Reynaldo decided to pursue something else. Tonight he fetched for me. It's a good thing I don't have children or I'd drive everyone nuts. I'm just sayin...
