April 24, 2014  As I've mentioned before, the activity to tear down a trade show is fast paced and a frenzy of activity.  Sometimes you see people stacking stuff on carts so high you think it will never stay loaded.  Then you see mounts, booths, etc on dollies that people are wheeling (quickly - running really  out to the waiting trucks.  More times  than you would think, you see people carrying single items out of the hall, like this guy is doing.    And of course you see many people that are  disassembling the booths.  Everyone has a job........it's organized chaos.  Here's a shot of someone carrying a single item out - because it was what he needed to do (I suppose)  to clear his booth and get the heck out of the Las Vegas Convention Center as soon as possible.   I thought the table this gentleman was carrying was quite handsome.  ;-)  "Effective leadership is putting first things first.

4/24/2014 ~ A Peaceful Place to Rest  A small cemetery outside San Antonio. Delightfully neglected, where the windflowers have taken over.   Thank you so much for the wonderful comments on yesterday's shot of the abandoned roses!
This owl goes by different names throughout Europe and Asia.  There are only a dozen or so in Austria.  I don't understand the German name - Sumpfohreule "Swamp Ear Owl".  Seems confused.  I was with a group, and the leader pointed out the owl, perhaps 150m away.  In the Hansag on the border to Hungary.
2014-04-24. Another B&B.  Thank you for your comments/views yesterday.
April 24, 2014 The tulips are fading fast here.  I love the combination of blue and red in these beds.  Thank you for your comments on the Maple leaves yesterday.  There are several types of Japanese Maple that will grow in Texas.  This weekend I will be learning more about the best type for our soil.  After seeing the Maples at the Arboretum I have decided there needs to be one in our yard.  Make your day amazing Jeanne
Daily Post 1147-  113/365   4/23/2014 - Shoe Repair shop…wonderful follow-up story to this photo!   This photo was taken during the November 2012 trip to Havana. A few of us stopped into this shop to watch these men work on repairing shoes. They were very friendly and welcomed me to take photos of them. If you notice, there are wonderful caricature drawings at each of their stations. We said our good-byes (all in Spanish) and as we were leaving a gentleman came in and it turns out that he was the artist who drew all of those images for the gentlemen working. This fellow named Enrique spoke a little English and agreed to let me photograph him, too, outside the shop. He happend to write a blog and have an email address so I got his name and the website of his blog and told him I would send him the photos..which when I got home I did, but very low res due to the slowness of Cuban computers.  He got them and said thank you.. etc..and that was that.   Now fast forward to the trip I took June 2103 with Steve and as I've mentioned before I brought a number of prints of people I had photographed to hopefully give them the photos. INcluded were 5x7 prints of these people working in the shoe repair shop.  Sadly our guide didn't remember exactly where this shop was so the week that we were with the tour I couldn't find this shop. When our week ended with the tour group Steve and I stayed in Cuba an additional 9 days and traveled a little outside of Havana on our own then returned to Havana.   When we came back to Havana one of our goals was to find the home of the Grandmother of a friend I have on FB who is from Cuba and left in the early 60s. We had a map and rambled on various streets on the way to find my friend's grandmother's house to photograph the front porch for her.. Walking down one street I noticed a sign that was for a little daily or weekly paper and saw the word in Spanish "Humoristica".. I realized that if they had comics or caricatures maybe they knew of that fellow I had met months before. I asked Steve to wait up a bit for me to check it out…lo and behold….my friend Enrique the caricature artist worked there!!! He was not in that day, but I was able to leave the photos with them at the office and they let me know that he would be participating in a class teaching caricature art to children the next day and so we went there the next day and saw him!!! It was amazing that our paths crossed again that way. He happens to be on Facebook so we are still in contact with each other. One of my most favorite little stories from our trip..but I have a couple more that I can share!  Isn't his art fun???  Here is a link to Enrique and the fellows working in the shop: Shoe Repair If you haven't seen it before there is also a short video you might like of the cars passing through and intersection in Havana. Just click forward through the pictures to see it. Thanks always for your time and interest…it means a lot to me and greatly appreciated.
The space in this rock pile was intriguing and it is a rare corel fix for me. I'm experimenting.   Sunny all day but I had a long dental appointment . Tomorrow: I rest! YAY!  24/04/2014

April 24 2014 First Tulip  Finally spotted one - at the zoo.  I was surprised how many they had since I haven't seen tulips yet elsewhere.  Thanks for all the great comments on my beer label  shot yesterday. I like to find odd product names.  This one from 2010 is hard to beat http://arthill.smugmug.com/Photography/Daily-Photos-2010/5529181_WhqgkK#!i=810728136&k=NDm2sZp&lb=1&s=A

04-17-2014 "Lighter Clematis"  This is another clematis I have in my yard.  It has somehow gotten into a lorapedlem that is growing next to it.  It is supposed to be growing up an arbor.  It is a lighter color than the deep purple I posted a few days ago.  I love the color of this one because it is so bright.  To answer Art's question about some the children at Horses for Handicap not being photographed, here is what I know.   It is a requirement that all children in school or participating in events where photos will be taken that there is signed parental consent before their photo can be made.  Even before I retired schools were required to have this consent before the students were photographed our recorded on video or audio.  I am assuming this is throughout the nation because I know that students participating in national honor choirs have to have this release.  If one child does not have the consent the event cannot be photographed or recorded in any manner.  I think part of it goes back to how easy it is to get photos of children on public media like Facebook, Twitter and others.  You know there are some SICK people out there and we have to protect the innocent.  The honor choir I just chaired had 130 high school students and before I could take any photos or have the concert professionally recorded I had to have the parents sign a consent form.    It tickled me that you all were so complimentary of the sweet smiles of Sutton and Lily on yesterday's post.  I can't wait to read them the comments.  You are most gracious and I certainly appreciate them all. Donna
