NYEve-part 2

Sunday - 31 December 2006

So that is about it for this year. Many of our summer projects didn’t get completed, blame it on the heat (way too many days over 100 degrees) or on my recovering from the tonsillectomy and then bunion surgery, or just not enough time. This past week Russel has been on school break with the […]

I still have my head in Gallery, won’t have anything to show for some time. While working, a dragonfly perched on my neighbors antenna. This is something they do often, I have tried to get good shots before, with no luck. Today was different! I actually got 20 or more great shots! I am quite […]
