View Full Version : A Photo A Day Keeps The Doctor Away (Part3)
10-11-2007, 01:10 PM
Hello Everyone! :hi: :hi:
Time to restart this thread again. This is my favorite thread on the whole board! I love all of your photos. They are so uplifting and interesting. It's like show and tell and that is so important in keeping these doctors away right? I've got to go back and catch up with the other thread. I started the title of this thread out with part three even though I meant part 4. Woops....
I've enjoyed getting to know all of you and I am honored to be part of this group. I wish I had joined it sooner! You are all so talented, beautiful people who have so much color in your lives.
We can show the world that IC doesn't totally run our lives.
Big Hugs to you all! :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug:
While I was still sound asleep, My Mom came running into my room a yesterday, huffing and puffing, and sputtering for me to throw some shoes on and for this photo. I am calling him Lucky Long Legs. He's here to give us some luck for the upcoming months! We thought you would all appreciate the meaning behind it.

Kara--great shot. Though you now have me sitting here with a case of the creepy crawlies. :D
Jane--still waiting on that new camera to show up? Is the waiting getting intense?.haha ;)
Tracey--you're a funny one! :D
Sue--you've got some lovely photos from your trip!!
I have to comment on your mention of snow--keep it up there!!! :)
Ronda--yeah, you read the price of those shoes correctly--hence the photo of them still sitting undisturbed on the shelf instead of a pic of them attached to my feet! They're cute though, I have to admit. :)
10-12-2007, 01:26 AM
Kara, I love that photo - aside from the spider, lol, that's one of my favorite mums!!! And it just goes to show great minds think alike -- I too thought about starting a new thread! Glad you did! :)
Diana, yes yes, I know I'm funny, you don't have to remind me....lmao!!
10-12-2007, 04:37 AM
Another spider shot. EEEEEEK!!!! Halloween is getting ever so much closer. It really is a good shot, Kara.
10-12-2007, 04:45 AM
Tell your mom THANKS we need all the luck we can get:smile tee
and thanks for sharing this with us..
I found these flowers growing in my back yard under some metal roofing
Kinda cheesy..but this reminds me that even in the darkest conditions, life can still grow and be beautiful
This was a rainbow over my house after a big rain storm
And this one....reminds me of the promise God made. and that there will always be a rainbow at the end of a storm.
10-12-2007, 06:50 AM
Melody...I love those flowers. Do you the name of them? Any of our garden experts (Traceann!!!!) know what they are called?
I dont know what they are . I just lifted up this mettal roofing thing last summer and there they were. mixed in with weeds and dead grass. it was real amazing to see them growing there like that..no sunlight..no water. its strange that tey were able to grow.
10-12-2007, 07:25 AM
Moad--cool flowers. I too am interested in what they are.
Tracey--what kind of flowers did Moad post? :D
Some wild berries I found growing in my side yard. Didnt notice the spider web until the upload. Its kind of keeping with the theme around here lately....:).......
same berries in their unripend state....
Probably the last rose of summer.....
Sandcastle at the sand sculpting competition last week at the oceanfront; part of the Neptune festival...
10-12-2007, 08:09 AM
I loved Karas fall decorating pictures so I thought I would share mine..The first picture I picked out all the decorations and put them together, but if you look at the container it is in I covered it. It was actually an old pickle jug that Doms grandmothers mother once used. His grandmother was so thrilled to see how I made use of it..I wish I would of took a before picture of it..
Ronda that is so pretty. your house colors remeind me of my house. I am a huge color freak. I will have to take some of mine and post them. Fall is so beautiful!
10-12-2007, 08:20 AM
leelee...Did you paint your walls for Fall? I love the colors of Fall.
D...Ewww...Ppider Web Alert.
On to better things...The Celtic Woman do a song called "The Last Rose of Summer" on their New Journey CD. Meav NI Mhaolchatha does the singing. Try UTube...I think you will find it there...Beautiful, but then what do they sing that is not? I have fallen in love with their music. Their voices are like crystal.
That is an amazing sand castle. I bet they used something besides a plastic shovel and pail...Right?
10-12-2007, 08:26 AM
Thanks Moad. We re-did the whole house last year.. I wanted warm colors so I choose these and in my livingroom I have these same colors with olive green and the walls are a little lighter because they are splotched or sponged with a cream color..
I will have to take pictures of my kicthen, Its bright and lively..With hand painted grape vines on top..Please take some pictures of yours to share with us:smile tee
Dg- Kewl sand castlle and last rose :( oh well theres always next year..
10-12-2007, 08:47 AM
Here's my Kitchen..
10-12-2007, 08:53 AM
Did you do the hand painting, leelee?
10-12-2007, 09:04 AM
No my colors are just warm colors in the livingroom and foyer area...The Foyer area is like a burnt reddish/clay color and the livingroom is red clay looking color that has been splotched with a cream color so its a lot lighter but still blends well..Hope this make since, if not hey I will just take a picture of the color..lol
And yes Sharon, well kind of yes it was hand painted...The leaves and grapes were done with a sponge stamp thing and the pears, but the vines were hand painted.. Me and Doms mom did the work..Shes such a great MIL..
Ronda are houses are alot alot. kitchen color is different, but the same idea almost. we just bought our first house just over 2 years ago, I am working toward going to college for Interior Decorating. so it has been alot of fun and good practice decorating the house.
This one is my kitchen, I did a double Ivy stencil over the door way, archway, and window
My livingroom decorated for fall
These are all of my dinning room decorated for fall
My bedroom..My FAVORITE room in the house
sorry for such a long post, I couldnt pick which ones to post
10-12-2007, 09:21 AM
Love those colors Moad. You just gave me my bedroom idea!!..lol Thats the only room we have not done..
Thank you Ronda, ya know. these are such warm cozy colors, I love to cuddle up in my bed with just a candle light and watch a DVD. it used to be purple. this is WAY better lol!
10-12-2007, 09:34 AM
Both of you have lovely homes. I love the colors both of you chose. Thanks for the look.
10-12-2007, 09:46 AM
Thanks Sharon:smile tee
10-12-2007, 09:58 AM
Sharon--those sand castles are quite impressive to watch being built. They start out as just a big pile of sand, and within hours, voila'. :)
Moad & Ronda--nice glimpse into y'alls homes. I too am one who likes warm colors, however I dont feel the gumption to paint coming on anytime soon..haha..Feel free, either one of you, to stop by with paint brush/roller in hand! :D
10-12-2007, 12:06 PM
Oh yeah you two - Ronda and Moad - GREAT colors! I just recently have broken free of my "everything must be neutral" mindset, lol. I have a color called Library Red picked out for one wall of my upstairs "den, craft room, maybe someday baby room" room, lol. I can't wait til we get started on it!
I wish I could identify that flower! I at first thought it might be a relative to hepatica, but the petals are different!
These little guys grow in the strangest place, practically under my landscape timbers, that border the driveway from my flower bed, weird! ;)
10-12-2007, 03:23 PM
:hi: Sharon, love the Celtic Woman CD's, sounds like angels singing. Kara, nice spider shot, hope you were good to it as they are good luck. dg, those are the same mystery berries that appeared at my house under the evergreen trees, I posted a couple of weeks ago. The sandcastle is fantastic, is that on the Atlantic or Pacific coast? Mode isn't it amazing how beautiful plants do everything possible to survive- must be a lesson there.
Today was a good day. Appointment with the URO to see why the interstim was letting me down, leaking badly on the way to the pot. I even increased the impulse number several times in the past week. Seems like after my last programing appt. with the Dr. it got turned off. Not sure how that happen, but all is very good now; and the depression has been lifted.
The last of this summer flowers which may come to an end tonite as a frost is expected; it's 40 degrees now at 9PM :shake: suebee
10-12-2007, 03:52 PM
Sue--are those berries still a mystery to you? I'm very curious to find out what they are exactly. Theres a arboretum run by VT not too far from me so I'm thinking that I might take a sample to them for identification.
The sand sculptures were here on the Atlantic. There's a sand sculpture contest every year during the last week of the Neptune festival. Sculptors from all over the world participate.
Figured I'd post a few more pics of the sculptures, especially since Sue mentioned the "s" word..haha..They were taken with a point & shoot coupled with having to dodge many people so excuse the quality..:).....
this one titled "cleaning up the beach" took 1st place...
gotta love the in-laws.:).......
"fragile"...notice the baby through the mothers stomach....
I saw all the other sculptures, I thought I would share these. my friend just sent me these yesterday...simply AMAZING. this is only a few, there were about 20
10-13-2007, 11:14 AM
Moad--where were those sculptures?
I'm not sure where they were, my friend sent them to me. but they sure are amazing!
10-13-2007, 02:33 PM
:smile tee Thank you girls for the wonderful sand sculptures. They are so intricate. To think one wave and their gone. So now I've seen sculpture talent from one coast to the other. I watch kite flying at Cannon Beach, OR a few years ago; my daughter lives in Seattle. The sand sculptures remind me of the beautiful ice sculptures I've seen in Alaska.
10-13-2007, 02:42 PM
Wow. What amazing sand castle photos! All of them!
Love everyone's beautiful autumn decorations and the story of the flowers that bloomed basically in the dark was inspiring!
Diana, I got cold feet on buying the camera so I cancelled the order. Now tonight I was again thinking I couldn't live without it so I ordered it again <sheepish grin>. I also ordered a real humdinger of a lens that I can't wait to try out in combination with the new camera. Yes, I've been a bad, bad girl.:evilsmile The only reason my husband isn't pitching a fit is because of my successful selling on Ebay. He knows I can eventually sell enough stuff to pay it off!
Please, the next time I say I have to have something new -throw some cold water on me!
Below is a photo I took a couple of days ago in my home studio. These are some of the decorations we have around the house and I just gathered them together and put them on a black backdrop. I've been taking some photos and putting them on bigstockphoto.com to try to sell some stockphotos. This is one I recently uploaded but it hasn't been approved yet.
Anyway, Happy Fall Y'all!!
10-13-2007, 06:48 PM
Sue--those ice sculptures are awesome! It sounds like you've taken full advantage of opportunities to travel...very nice!! :)
Jane, Jane, Jane...:lmao: what are we going to do with you??..hahaha..I tried to throw some "cold water" on you in a subtle way--you either shook it off or never picked up on it..hahaahaha..On a more serious note, I think cancelling your original order gave you time to really decide whether or not you wanted to take the plunge..now you honestly know that you did indeed want that camera..voila', it'll be yours very soon! :). I'm interested now in this "humdinger" of a lens you've bought....do tell!! do tell!!
Lovely picture, btw!! :)
10-14-2007, 02:20 AM
That wouldn't be a Longaberger basket in that pic would it?
10-14-2007, 03:10 AM
The link above tells about the new lens I ordered! Thanks for trying to help keep me in check!! Maybe it will work next time <grin>
Barb, no that is a really cheap basket probably from Walmart. I do have a couple of longaberger baskets my sister gave me. I just need to find them so I can sell them on Ebay to help pay for that camera gear! lOL
10-14-2007, 03:13 AM
I love all those sand castles. They are amazing.
10-14-2007, 08:58 AM
My hobby is plants and last weekend I saw a strawberry pot that was on sale for $10 so had to buy it! I made it into a succulent pot......here's a picture of it......
10-14-2007, 09:46 AM
That's beautiful Roxie!
10-14-2007, 12:45 PM
It's very theraputic for me to work with plants. I have 3 big flower gardens now.
10-14-2007, 03:15 PM
What a great idea Roxie..:smile tee
10-14-2007, 03:49 PM
Hi All, :smile tee Roxie love your hummingbird signature; and your succulent pot (hens and chickens one and the same?) Jane, beautiful fall display, wonderful warm colors and black background sets it off. Went for a walk in the woods today:

And one more shot, Christmas material for wreath and fern :hi: suebee

10-14-2007, 04:09 PM
Nice shots, Sue Bee. Is that a yellow mushroom?
Photo taken with that new lens. Not as happy with it as I thought I would be so it goes back tomorrow and I have purchased one that should be even better for these kinds of shots.
Thanks for looking!
10-15-2007, 02:22 PM
Janie, I'd count my self lucky to have such a fine photo as that. Bee suspended, colors beautiful with yellow shared by flower and bee. Glad you posted it. :) suebee
10-15-2007, 02:25 PM
Janie, your bee and flower picture is beautiful! Great shot!
10-15-2007, 02:39 PM
Janie, instead of you looking for somewhere for us to take lessons, I will just take lessons from you! Your photos are amazing. I will email you about rescheduling Mollie's photo session.
We spent the weekend closing our pool (finally), which of course put Mollie in a sad mood. She didn't mind the cold water! I should have taken pictures of her sad face. Last night, she just stood by where she used to go down the stairs into the water and stared. I wish I could read that dog's brain!
I am enjoying everyones pictures so much. Tracey, I am glad to see your Clematis plant. Remember last spring when we were excited about our plants appearing? I have transplanted some more of my irises among other things, and I have written out a "map" as to where things are suppose to come up next year. LOL!
Great sandcastles! I have only seen somebody actually doing that on the beach one time. And it was amazing, not nearly as good as those photos, but still such talent! I watched a show on the Discovery channel about a guy that started doing that who was pretty much a beach bum. He now earns hundreds of thousands of dollars every year doing that for corporation events, etc.
10-15-2007, 02:52 PM
Thanks you guys for the sweet comment on the bee photo! :-)
10-15-2007, 02:55 PM
I'm really looking forward to taking Mollie's photos so lets definitely reschedule soon. It will give me a great chance to practice with my studio lighting! :-)
Give me a call.
PS. I made an appointment with Dr. L**g for next month. I know he won't be a great as Ragi (nobody could be) but I figure if he and I can get along at all it will save me a yearly trip to knoxville.
10-15-2007, 04:26 PM
Jane--what exactly do you not like about the lens? And which lens are you replacing it with?
10-16-2007, 01:04 AM
I am replacing it with this lens which is faster and better in low light conditions. I hope it meets my expectations!
I know these arent pictures of nature, but I am teaching myself to sew. and I made these blankets for my nieces and nephews. they are about to have a new baby sister soon. and I didnt want them to feel left out so I made these blankets for them. they are my first sewing projects. I am kinda proud of them.
I made this one for my 1....almost 2 year old Nephew Hunter
I made this one for my 3...almost four ear old Niece Abigail
And this one and the hat I made for their baby sister Emma who is due to come into the world in Dec.
10-19-2007, 11:11 AM
Melody...Those are beautiful!
Janie...That rose is gorgeous.
10-19-2007, 03:15 PM
Mel--not too shabby for a first try!!..looks good to me!..I'm sure the little ones will be thrilled :)
Jane--was that rose picture taken with the new lens?..awesome macro, regardless!
10-19-2007, 04:36 PM
Those are beautiful! The colors you chose are so soft and pretty!
Thanks Sharon and Diana for the kind words on the flower photo. It was one of the first photos I took with the new lens. The best part is this lens is so good that I don't have to do any color correctio or sharpening. No post processing at all on most photos! Woooooo Hoooooo! What a time saver and major break through in my photography.
10-19-2007, 06:27 PM
Jane--sounds like you're happy with your purchase! :)
10-19-2007, 06:44 PM
Moad- Love the blankets
10-20-2007, 07:22 AM
Beautiful Creations! So Vivid! I love your fall decortations too. They look a lot like mine.
As usual you have taken my breath away with that flower. I had some of my photos developed for the first time ever. I was so excited to see the detail in them that could not be seen via the computer. I am framing some of them at 8 x 10's for my front Hall.
I love that yellow mushroom is it?
Awesome sand castles. How COOL!
Are the chipmunks still around? Those flowers are so unique.
I may have a photo of my Father In Law's Simese Kitty after dinner tonight.
10-20-2007, 09:39 PM
Spent the evening at a coffee house last night being entertained by my friend, Bryan. Thought not only would he make a nice subject, so would the coffee roaster....:)...
the extremely talented, Bryan...
the heavenly aromatic coffee roaster...
10-21-2007, 02:42 AM
D...What fun that must have been. :)
10-21-2007, 03:02 AM
Sharon--it was quite fun. I had lost contact with the lovely Bryan for several years and just recently reconnected. He used to play with rock bands, however now plays mostly solo and acoustic.
one more from last night. the ilghting was terrible for non-flash photos, hence the quality. However after looking at it a few times I think it kind of works with setting the mood of the venue...haha..I sound kind of snobbish, dont i?..hahaha.....
PS--anyone interested in hearing him, he's got a video on YouTube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pAmUb4oWgck
10-21-2007, 03:10 AM
I think it didn't work that time either.

Diana, I enjoyed the photos of your friend and the coffee. I can almost here the music and smell the aroma of brewing beans!
Melody, the tree photos are beautiful too. We still haven't gotten much color here in our neck of the woods!
10-21-2007, 12:49 PM
Jane--whats your take on the lighting in the 2nd pic I posted? Any tips on how to correct that next time? I didnt want to get too close to him and use the flash because its distracting to him. Like I stated, I think it adds a bit of ambiance to the photo....no?
10-22-2007, 10:16 AM
:hi: Catching up on the latest photos. Mode, love your trees dressed for fall and also your first quilts of lovely shades which someone will be lucky to have. Janie, think I can smell the beautiful pink rose. dg2901 wish the coffee house was near here, the "Nag's Head Rag" is cool. Kara, yes it's a yellow mushroom, seems to be lots since all the rain this past week.
Love the thick green moss on the tree, and the last photo is zebra butterflies sunning them selves on the rocks :flower: suebee
10-22-2007, 10:41 AM
Ok I love all the new pic's. I have no new ones other then homecoming pic in another thread, and need to get busy.
10-22-2007, 11:57 AM
Sue--that yellow mushroom is very interesting! I dont recall ever having seen one in any color but typical mushroom color..haha..Those zebra butterfly's are gorgeous. :)
Ahhh, I see you checked out the YouTube link I posted..haha..very good! :)
Leslie--I think I posted regarding your daughters Homecoming pictures. They look like a perfect couple; glad they both had fun! :)
10-22-2007, 12:59 PM
Meant to put these in my above post..forgot, then it wouldnt allow me to edit for some reason...:hmm: Sooooooooooo, here ya go...
the largest house this year at Home-a-rama. 9550 sq ft of living space, not including the garage or outdoor decks/patio/etc....
view of back of house from entrance to neighborhood....
10-23-2007, 03:44 AM
:smile tee WOW WOW but way to much to clean, I'll stick with my little house. :rolleyes: suebee
10-23-2007, 03:55 AM
All the new pictures are really good. The fall trees, the mushroom, the moss, the butterflies...
Oh and D...you get the prize for taking pictures of the biggest house in all the world. Well, maybe not the biggest but it certainly is a big one.
10-23-2007, 04:08 AM
I want that house with a maid. Can you imagine the solitude when your kids were fighting. you would never ever have to hear it again :smile tee
10-23-2007, 04:23 AM
Leslie...You would need a whole staff. That includes a Butler just to answer the door. Why do you ask? Because as soon as we all find out it is you who lives there, we will all be at your door wanting to see inside. :lmao:
10-23-2007, 04:28 AM
moad- I love he fall pictures of your yard.
Dg- To much house for me!! Thanks for sharing it..
Sue- I have never seen a yellow mushroom?..
10-23-2007, 10:52 AM
I'm getting ready to go to Canada again to visit Sandramac and some other Canadian IC folks. My Maine Coon decided he wants to go to meet Sandra's Maine Coons. How can I resist??
10-23-2007, 03:53 PM
Kara--have a safe trip.
me attempting to Ripstick...the husband and son agreed that it was best they put 911 on speed dial while I was mucking around with this thing...:D....
10-23-2007, 03:56 PM
:smile tee Kara
We are so excited about you comming Sunday! I sent you some picture's of Izzy & Ella waiting at the door. Zoe too! Maybe you can post them for everyone. Hugs Sandra:cat: :cat: :cat:
10-23-2007, 06:02 PM

10-24-2007, 06:41 AM

Hugs Sandra:cat: :cat: :cat:
10-24-2007, 07:49 AM
Have a great trip Kara. Give everyone a (((hug))) from all of us.
Okay D...What is Ripstick?
10-24-2007, 02:31 PM
:smile tee Lovely, sunny day with the leaves really losing their color, and falling. Kara have a good time in Toronto. Saw the Phantom there about 18 years ago, rode the subway which was very clean and safe, walked thru the red light district to get to a McDonalds to ask where the subway entrance was. Boy that was an experience! Wasn't alone, with my husband.
Photos taken this late in the afternoon as the sun was setting and glowing thru the trees.
If you look close there is a nuthatch on the feeder
10-24-2007, 02:52 PM
Just took this picture..
My Basset Hound really thinks she is still a baby, here she goes again trying to fit in my little dogs bed.. She's so silly..I thought maybe you all would get a laugh out of this..
10-24-2007, 03:12 PM
Sue--I like the 2nd picture..very peaceful!
Ronda--cute dog! She just wants to be babied...very cute how she tries to get in the little dogs bed.
Sharon--I'm posting a picture of the Ripstick...
10-24-2007, 03:22 PM
Wow! That's cool (your kitchen, Leelee). I only got through one part of my wall (above our closet) and gave up! lol
OK -- Hopefully I figured out how to do this, but here's our fall decorating project. My hubby and I are in a rut most weekends because I am usually sick (migraine/TMJ troubles), and the weekend we made this was together time to get my mind off my body. It's a project from the Lowe's calendar. We made it with fake pumpkins, but the Lowe's original had real and the topiary only lasted 5 days that way. Enjoy!

Susie- Thanks.. Love the pumkin project...yea I like looking through them project magizines at Lowes to.. I look while Hubbys shopping. I get the ideas but never buy the book..hehehe... I know thats bad!!:evilsmile
10-25-2007, 03:27 AM
Leelee...That is one big baby you have there.
Sue...I look forward to fall colors every year and it is so sad when all the leaves are gone. Nice pictures.
D...OMGosh that thing looks wicked. You be careful now, ya hear?
Suzie...You did a great job with that project.
10-25-2007, 07:51 PM
:) leelee88, Love the bassett, dogs are so silly, brings smiles to our hearts. A good thing. dg, do you ride the ripstick?.Will have to share the picture of the ripstick with my 13 year old grandson. Suzie very nice halloween project. Took a couple more sunset, thru the trees pictures tonight.
10-26-2007, 01:21 AM
Ronda, adorable photo of your dog!
Diana, what exactly is a ripstick :-) Is it a skateboard?
Susie, really cute pumpkin project :-) Nice job!!
SueBee love the autumn shots. We haven't seen much color change around here yet.
10-26-2007, 01:33 AM
Sue...I am so glad someone out there is experiencing Autumn color. Like Janie said, nothing much going on around here, yet. I really don't expect much anyway. It has been way to hot and dry. What is Fall without orange, yellow and red leaves. I'll tell you what it is. It is sad...so sad.
10-26-2007, 01:52 AM
dg- I just went back and looked at the pict of you and that Ripstick..
I got to laughing because of the name...lol That is exactly what would happen if I got on it. I would Rip something!!!!So, I will leave that for the pros ..:smile tee
10-26-2007, 09:29 AM
The Ripstick is the latest craze amongst skateboarders. As you can tell, its not set up like a skateboard (Ripstick only has 2 inline wheels) so it takes alot more balance. Do I ride?..ahaha..Yeah, i rode all of maybe 4 ft before falling off. Would I like to ride?-heck yeah, 'cause its loads of fun. Problem is, my husband and chlid think that one of them needs to stay near me with 911 on speed dial for "just incase" insurance.:lmao: The only reason there are pictures of me 'riding' it is because the husband said "the paramedics are going to need pictures of how your legs used to looked prior to mangling yourself on this thing". :lmao:
Sue--I too am liking your autumn colors! We're not experiencing anything nearly as pretty in my area as of yet. Keep posting! :)
10-26-2007, 03:29 PM
Well, I thought I would share these with you, It has been years since I have carved a pumpkin.. Boy they have neat patterns and small battery operated knives to do the job, still time consuming but easy.. Shhh don't tell anyone my secret..lol
The BOO was Doms I did the other one. The kids are still working on theres..lol Will post them later
10-26-2007, 04:25 PM
I haven't carved a pumpkin in years either. I just have a few that you plug in! Those look great. I have "tried" to use those neat little tools a few years ago and they didn't look like yours. That's why my pumpkins have cords! LOL!
Can't wait to see your kids creations!
10-26-2007, 04:28 PM
Ronda--those turned out great!
10-27-2007, 05:00 AM
I am Jack O Lantern challenged. :lmao: You did a great job.
10-27-2007, 06:22 AM
corded pumpkins here also, none of my kids like to stick there hands in the pumpkin and neither do I so they really don't get into carving them. Go figure.
10-27-2007, 08:20 AM
LOL, Leslie.. That's funny because my step duaghter who is 11 said this is just GROSS...But she wanted to carve it, so we told her well you got to clean it first..She finally cleaned it but she fussed the whole time..lol I will take a picture of hers tonight..Aaron my son the 14 year old said I aint stickin my hand in that mess.. So his did not get carved.
10-27-2007, 02:21 PM
leelee, I love your pumpkins, so clever. We used to think if it had eyes, nose, and mouth, and maybe even ears that was good. But yours are a work of art. :smile tee suebee

I've been really busy. I am sorry I have not been around. I have some photos I would love to share tonight.
This is Sandramac from the ICN, our friend Williams that did our hair today, and I in Toronto, Ontario in Canada.
Williams and I after he did my hair today
Sandra and Willimas after he did her hair today
This is me after finally getting to Toronto last night. It was a LONG trip!

Kara, the second photo of you and William after the hair styling, is that you in the photo on the back wall? How come the kitty isn't tired? Hope you are having a great time in a great city, with nice weather. Posting the mushroom again as it didn't come up when clicking it.

I just noticed you are from Upstate NY. Are you anywhere near Rochester or Syracuse? No that isn't me in the poster. I still have to have my roots done today by Sandra. She is a master color styalist.
I love that Mushroom! Is it poisonous? Or edible?
I hope you have a great day today!
10-30-2007, 09:40 AM
Kara...I love the hair cut. It looks great.
Sue...All your pics of the mushrooms are great. Isn't fungus amazing?!?!
10-30-2007, 09:50 AM
Diana,I was ROTFLMAO reading about the RipStick and what your hubby said about why he needed photos~!
Ronda, AMAZING jack-o-lanterns!
Kara your hair looks great and I love the new floor in the hallway. I'm glad you had a nice trip!
SueBee - cool mushroom photos!
I've been super busy running my daughter from one birthday party to another, to her piano recital and all of her other activities. She is wearing us out!! If anyone wants to see some photos of her at her pian recital IM or email me and I'll send the link and password.

10-31-2007, 11:37 AM
I want to go back to that post about Traceann being a flower expert. Wasn't she on the list with us looking for her flowers that were sprouting up last spring and couldn't find them????
Tracey, I just separated my iris bulbs again last weekend. I put a note my journal where I planted them!
10-31-2007, 03:04 PM
dg, your dog is lovely, great halloween spirit. Tara, I'm from Altmar, NY, on the east end of Lake Ontario, about 35 miles south of the Canadian border, you know that snow belt, the old lake effect stuff which could happen any minute. Visitors at the bird feeder, just passing thru the yellow grosbeaks.
The first time I saw the yellow grosbeak, about 28 years ago, my husband and I thought it was a giant gold finch, which was also at the feeder. :bonk: suebee :rolleyes:
11-03-2007, 03:53 PM
Still bees buzzing around our neck of the woods!

My new puppy, pepper. :smile tee
11-03-2007, 05:00 PM
WOW, those pics are much bigger than I thought...sorry.
11-03-2007, 07:10 PM
Sue--lovely little bird visitor you have there! We have had a bird feeder out for a few months and never get any visitors.
Jane--great capture! I'm assuming this is w/the new lens?
MD6--what an adorable little puppy! Reminds me a lot of the dog I had as a child/teen.
11-04-2007, 01:48 AM
I think he is a cutie too...but my cat's are not to happy with the situation....lol.
11-04-2007, 02:11 AM
What an adorable puppy!! Is it a miniature poodle, standard or . . .?
Diana, thanks for commenting on the photo. Yes it is one taken with the new lens/camera combination. I'm still trying to get the hang of it all.
11-04-2007, 03:25 AM
Hello Pepper :puppy: ...I love Poodles. They don't shed. :)
11-04-2007, 11:07 AM
:smile tee What a cutie!
hugs Sandra :cat: :cat: :cat:
11-04-2007, 11:52 AM
Maine Coons have a thing where they like to sit on whatever you are working on. Homework, Crafts, Doing Bills, and even typing on the computer keyboard. And as you can see by Sandra's Ella, they also like to try to become your Maine Course for dinner...............Maine Coon=Maine Course:lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:
I love it!!!!!!!!!!!
11-04-2007, 12:51 PM
:lmao: :lmao: So funny...
11-04-2007, 01:02 PM
Kara, that is so funny. My cat Penny didn't do alot of that. I always said because he was so big, but your cat seemed to manage!!! I could always count on him helping me wrap Christmas presents. Every year there would be a touch of orange hair taped on all of the packages as well as a few holes where he would have to "make bread" on the paper.
Oh yea, I love the puppy pictures and of course Janie and her "bee" picture. Janie, I will email you later to find out how your schedule looks!
11-04-2007, 03:45 PM
Very funny picture, Kara.
11-06-2007, 12:53 PM
T83 probably knows where this photo was taken :-) It is at the Japanese park behind our local library. I slowed the shutter speed down to try to get a smooth, motion look to the little waterfall.
11-06-2007, 01:25 PM
love all the new photo's.
11-06-2007, 04:42 PM
Jane--thats what I wanted to accomplish with the water shots I took in WV, however I didnt think to take my tripod with me (:mad: :tsk: ) and couldnt find a make-shift one either.
Lovely image! :)
view of the Lesner Bridge, VA Beach..(taken with my point and shoot a couple of years ago)......
Tucson, AZ..(film camera, 2002)
pano of The Bellagio, LV (point & shoot, 2005)
11-07-2007, 01:20 AM
Janie...The water fall is breathtaking. I love the image of falling water. Makes me feel so peaceful and content.
D...I love Tucson. Hubby and I used to go there on occasion as one of his former clients lived there. We almost moved there lots of years ago.
11-07-2007, 12:59 PM
Sharon--isnt Tucson lovely?! My brother has lived there for 15 years; we've been fortunate to be able to visit him once every couple of years.
speaking of AZ--my SIL found this lovely creature sitting in her shower one morning a couple of years ago. Talk about a wake-up call.hahaha..
11-07-2007, 02:22 PM
Nice shots. I really love that Pano! Very nice! Thanks Diana and Sharon for the kind comment on my waterfall photo.
We had a heavy frost here last night and I took a few photos of my flowers after the big chill. Here is one:
11-07-2007, 02:45 PM
Nice one, Jane!
I think that pic would make a lovely Christmas card!
11-07-2007, 03:27 PM
If I saw a spider like that I would have wet my pants and given myself a good "shower" if you will.!!!!!!!!!! My Husband used to have one of those for a pet. It's name was Azreal.
That waterfall looks like glass. So peaceful. It's like how I would like to feel everyday.
It snowed here today but did not accumulate so I have no photos for it. Don't worry give it a few weeks and we will have 9 feet of snow!
My grandmother took this. I don't know if I already posted it. She loves rainbows. This one showed up right over her house and it went all the way down to the ground on both sides. You can't see it in this photo but it was a double rainbow.
11-07-2007, 05:02 PM
Kara--I used to have a pet tarantula named Boochie. Little guy was mean as could be!
That's a lovely rainbow picture! Granny's got it goin' on with the photog talents! :bow: :lmao:
And did you say sssssssssssssnow?..yikes!! Keep that up there!!!
11-08-2007, 01:25 AM
EWWWWWW!!!! That is one big, hairy spider. I was talking with a friend of mine at dinner this past Saturday night and she was telling me that they once had a pet Tarantula named Iggy. Now, personally I don't think "pet" and "Tarantula" should be said together nor even in the same conversation, but I did learn one fact that I did not know about them. Those tiny hairs that they have? They can throw them at what they think is attacking them and the hair will make you itch. It seems that those hairs are what makes Itching Powder work.
Janie...I know they gave us a freeze warning but I was surprised at the amount of frost that was on the ground. Good picture, sorta sad though. The first hint that flowers will not be around for much longer.
Kara...Ahhhh Rainbows. What beautiful creations.
11-08-2007, 07:45 AM
Sharon--the hair-throwing defense of the tarantula is true. Its generally used in the wild--when approached they'll release the hairs--yeah, a bit creepy and weird..haha..
Theres a local kid who, a couple of years ago, was at a friends hosue "playing" with the friends "pet" tarantula when the spider released its hairs. Unfortunately they ended up in the boys face and eyes, leaving him with permanent eye damage. Some of the hairs are still logged in his eye due to the Dr finding it too risky to remove them--Dr's feels the body will eventually work against them and they'll come out on their own. The Dr stated he removed "hundreds" of hairs.
Its strange, small spiders, like you'd fine in the house or outside/whereever creep me out--tarantulas dont bother me in the least. Perhaps its because they're large enough to be considered a "pet"..:biglaugh:
11-08-2007, 08:47 AM
Yes, Janie, I know the place. I have a cute picture of my older son jumping over that spot in his high school graduation robe.
We had a great spider making his web right by my front door on Halloween night. All the kids kept asking if it was real. The spider was about 1 1/2 inches around. It just steadily worked on his web all evening. I tried to get a picture, but I couldn't keep my arms still enough to make it out. He was gone the next morning, but I noticed last night he had set up house again.
Spiders don't bother me either, but my husband hates them. We have reversed roles in our house when it comes to spiders. I pick them up gently (not with my hand...so don't freak out) unless they are granddaddy long legs and put them outside. While I am doing this, my husband is looking for a shoe.
11-09-2007, 03:29 PM
Tracey, here is another spot that I'm sure you know from the same park :-)
I was never one to be particularly afraid of insects, snakes or anything like that but now that I'm a mommy I'm totally paranoid that Maggie will get bit by a brown recluse or something. Guess those maternal instincts really kick in and make ya protective.
11-09-2007, 05:07 PM
Jane--another nice one!
11-10-2007, 09:44 AM
11-10-2007, 04:04 PM
:hi: Janie, the falls and frosty flowers are beautiful. I have the flowers on my desktop now, it's not the first photo of your's I've enjoyed when I turn on the computer! Thanks. dg2901 neat traveling photos, especially the night shot of the bridge. as for the tarantula, I had one placed on my arm in New Mexico on a nature trip; now today if I saw on in my shower I'd call the DEC or someone to remove it; not so brave anymore. Kara, saw a little snow on Wednesday, also, and it's cold enough to still have a dusting in the wood.
11-10-2007, 05:25 PM
Sue--nice capture! :)
11-11-2007, 05:35 AM
Sue, thanks for your kind comment on my photo. Glad you like it enough to use it on the computer! I like the turtle photo. He looks like he is enjoying himself.
Diana, that is a lovely shot. Where was that taken? Is that you son on the bridge?
Below are some photos I took at our local zoo. My daughter loved the butterfly exhibit, especially when one of the little lovelies landed on her finger!
11-11-2007, 09:13 AM
Jane--I love butterflies! I very rarely see any around here so am always interested in peoples photos.
I especially like that orange/golden colored one--beauty!
That last pic I posted was taken while on vacation in WV; it was at the New River Gorge overlook--well, the steps that lead down to the overlook. I didnt realize how out of focus it is until I got home and uploaded (it very noticeable in larger format).
11-16-2007, 11:57 AM
Janie, love the butterfly arrangement. I have planted several bushes to attract the butterflies, don't think I've seen those. The birds are passing thru on their way south. Saw a fox sparrow digging under the feeders, and a group of yellow grosbeaks this week.
http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t302/suebee_photo/Fall%20leaves%20berries%20birds/nuthatchothers002.jpg http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t302/suebee_photo/Fall%20leaves%20berries%20birds/nuthatchothers003.jpg http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t302/suebee_photo/Fall%20leaves%20berries%20birds/eveninggrosbeaks007.jpg
The silly nuthatch, the familar chickadee, and the visiting grosbeak.
Had our first snow this morning, enough to experience that familiar slippery roads, think I'll stay home now. Can't Thanksgiving is coming and it's over the woods to grandmothers house. suebee :lmao:
11-16-2007, 07:41 PM
Sue--you get quite the collection of bird visitors..very nice! :)
11-16-2007, 08:06 PM
The Pride of America cruise ship (the only cruise ship that flies the American flag) docked at Nauticus. This was its first sailing that was promoted by Live with Regis and Kelly--they filled at different stops along the eastern seaboard. I got up bright and early and ventured down to the terminal to get a glimpse...very impressive I must say.
11-18-2007, 06:33 AM
dg2901 :hi: cute neighbor's dog, and what a beautiful ship. That would be fun, up and down the eastern coast. Want ta go? suebee :) :lmao: :dance:
11-18-2007, 09:28 AM
I'm game!. :)..:dance:
11-21-2007, 10:19 AM

11-21-2007, 02:59 PM
I 2nd that statement!
11-21-2007, 04:58 PM
I hope you all enjoy a happy, healthy, SAFE Day Tomorrow!
Love and Hugs to you ALL!
