Year 9 Begins

Sunday, January 1st, 2017

It is hard to believe that year #9 of doing this picture-a-day begins today. Actually, it began in October for me, as I started in October 2008. Thanks to my friend, Curtis, for prodding me along during those times I was ready to quit. So, Curtis, are you ready to begin Year #9?

Always An Adventure

Saturday, April 4th, 2015

This trip has yielded more than terrific hummingbirds to capture. My newest adventure was to experience a moderate earthquake. The windows rattled and the floor moved and there was quite the jolt.

Not Sure What Is Wrong

Monday, June 24th, 2013

I just updated the database and now I have that strange space between photos. Can’t seem to figure out how to get it out of there, either.

Back Soon, I Hope.

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

Sorry I am presently not posting pics. I have a  horrible case of vertigo. It has been a few years since I had my last bout. It came on suddenly in the middle of the night and has me flat in bed for a couple of days now. Hopefully it will ease up soon and let me get back to my barn chores and the computer. It is very hard for me to keep down and quiet. Doc says this could last for a couple of weeks.

Took A Break

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

I have been MIA for the last month and guess I need to get my behind in gear and get with the blog again. Coming home to winter was not the greatest. Our refrigerator had gone out and all the food spoiled. Our DVR also burned out and the furnace was out. Then one of the freezers was discovered to have been unplugged and all the food had rotted. Not  much of a welcome home. All has been replaced or fixed now and we are up and running again. It wasn’t all bad though, as I got a brand new 4 door refrigerator.  Dad spent some time in the hospital with a bleed in his leg a few weeks ago which was scary for us all. He is doing well and just celebrated his 65th wedding anniversary with Mom last weekend. Calving has been going along very well. The heifers have about finished and now the big herd starts. We are hoping that the weather holds for them. My knee has been keeping me at the house until this last week when I started feeding bulls and steers again. Mr. knee is not happy about my new activity and I might still have to make a trip to the doc.  I got my new internet set up yesterday and will  be having a new email addy within the next few days. I sure hope this works better than my old service.  I need to dig through my Sedona pics to see what I can share for the last 30 days or so. So be checking back every so often to see if I have finally gotten “with the program” again and am once again sharing photos.

Update from Las Vegas-St. George-Death Valley-Antelope Canyon-Snow Canyon-Zion-ghost towns-miscellaneous other places

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

Wednesday, November 16 -Kimmie and I are presently in Las Vegas and will be flying home tomorrow. It has been an exciting and exhausting 2 weeks of photography. We spent several days in Death Valley and had no cell service or internet for most of the trip. I am officially using my Apple computer all the time now. I learned so much and have a renewed energy to get out there and make a picture. There will be lots of photos to come in the next few days. Another trip is planed in the spring to Arches/Canyon Lands that I can hardly wait for. Off to see a couple of near by canyons to capture and then to check in at out hotel for the night. We might be shooting the lights tonight if we aren’t too tired.  I understand that we will be greeted by nice cold winter weather.

Not Working

Monday, October 17th, 2011

My blog site does not seem to be working anymore. I am unable to post photos, so don’t know when I will be back on. There was a recent wordpress update and that must have done something. Hope that Curtis can figure out what is wrong soon so that I can be up and running again.

Update: We got it going again. Thanks to my computer guru, Curtis.

Checking In

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

I haven’t been adding any new posts for several days.  I had a complaint that I should not be getting so far ahead and that my dates should match the days when I put them up. So I have been hanging in here waiting for the date to catch up to the day it should be.  Only a few more to go. I have missed being on here everyday. Guess the only time I should be posting ahead is when I am traveling and don’t have good internet. Only a few more weeks to go before Kimmie and I head out to Zion and our southern adventure.  I am so excited for our workshop and our independent travels while we are there.

Quick Check In

Friday, July 22nd, 2011

Friday, July 22 – just a quick check in. No photos as my computer is buried deep in our stash from IKEA. I had lists from Billie, Tiffany and Walter and the store had everything except for plastic children’s flat wear. Nice drive to Idaho Falls this afternoon and then takeout from Famous Dave’s. We had such a great time at the Grand Canyon and then on to Page. I finally got to shoot that sacred place when there were sun beams. They were exquisite for sure. I will be posting some shots as soon as I get home. Heading home tomorrow and then off to do a workshop for the state fair. Debbie and I will be judging cards and scrap booking next week too. Thelma and Louise have had an excellent adventure and never did meet up with Brad Pitt.
