The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity.

I too was bored today, so I grabbed my camera and headed outside to see what I might find...

Well. lets see... a little color is nice....

maybe, something a little more common....

And...what the heck is he doing out there?

Children make you want to start life over.

Todays entry is a bit different. The photos I am sharing are some my 
Ex-daughter-in-Law took.

This one cracked me up when I looked at Naomi's expression after she had read the sign...hahahaha

This is one of my favorites... 
they are so close.

How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!

I can't give enough praise to the young men and women who are putting their lives on the line for us all each and every day.

I had the privilege and honor of serving my country as well.
 While it was still a privilege.

now, it's a memory.

Then it was a task to be done.

And our families loved us for it.

Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain.

Catching up on yard work can have it's toll.

Every fiber of my body is tell me that is 
a truth.

But, today it's raining and I'm forced
to sit back a drink in all the good 
work my honey and I have accomplished. 

And we are doing just that.

The nice thing about teamwork is that you always have others on your side.

I wish I had half their energy.

up and over...

as far as it goes...

Oh,God...to be that limber...

An angel takes flight.

Beauty always promises, but never gives anything.

For the last few weeks I've been very busy having the pleasure of photographing Senior High students.

Thought it would be nice to share a few.

This is Matt and his girlfriend Mackenzie. They were really troopers and so patient with me.

A photograph is usually looked at - seldom looked into.

The last couple of weeks I've been really busy with Senior photos.

And every once in a while, I go off the beaten path to try  a few things that " I " like to try.

I applied a little texturing to this one.

the thing that makes this one so VALUABLE is that this is only the second time I've seen this fella smile in 18 years.

This took me back to the days of the old
" tin type"
