Why did I take this photo?

I am sure that there are a number of choices that I could have used for this theme, but I was limited by the ones that were on the computer in my office today. I have mostly pictures taken at church there, so here is one group photo from First Communion a couple of years ago. I am sure that the young lady in the lower left corner is wondering the same thing--Why are you taking THIS photo?

We had taken the regular group pictures already when Fr. Jaime had the kids pose in a few quirky ways. Look up left. Look up right. Raise your hands. Make a silly face....and this.

Something Blue

Well, that is me from time to time.

When Fr. Jose gave a Mother's Day blessing on Sunday and told the mothers not to cook, to have their husbands cook, I lost it. Grief comes in bits and spurts. I'm back from the depths and looking at the color blue.

My friend Cindy and I went to the Toppenish Wildlife Refuge on Sunday afternoon and we saw one of these guys. I did not get a picture of him, he was flitting here and there very frantically--maybe trying to figure out what to cook for Mother's Day.

These are from a couple of camping trips in recent years.



Pretty color.

Fun Fotos

My interpretation of Fun Fotos may be more of fotos when we were having fun, though you will see one here which mimics some that Mac has posted, as it was taken in the same place though not at the same time.

First of all my header phot is taken from this, a yummy treat from one year's Cousin Camp.

  I look forward to Cousin Camp every year. We are moving southward for this year's camp to better expand our horizons and to include one cousin family that has not been able to participate in the past. We were not able to have our annual gathering last year, the whole family gathering instead for Ranney's funeral. Maybe I will have some more and funner fotos after this year's gathering.

Here is a mirror of Mac's fun shots. This funhouse mirror and a couple of others are found along the Royal Mile in Edinburg, Scotland. Mac and Julie have visited, and he has posted a similar picture both in his blog and on Facebook. Ranney and I were there on vacation in 2010, when we also hiked in the Scottish Highlands.


 What is fun about this stolid statue of Abe Lincoln? Finding it in London, England on that same trip.

 ...where we also attended a performance of the "39 Steps". The chase is on here as the bobbie follows the culprit on the train. The train? Fun staging on that play!

Something New

This rose bush has been hanging around for a couple of weeks and it is finally NEW in its spot in my yard.

I thought I had lost five rose bushes over this wild winter, but some of them are coming back, sporting new growth. I don't know what they will look like at blooming time, but I will give them a chance. In the meantime I have planted this one at last. And there is still much weeding to be done.
