08-27-2014 "Our Miracle"  One year ago today this little precious boy and his sister came into the world 2 months early.  Because of complications his sister, my namesake, only lived 10 days.  He was in NICU for many weeks but kept growing and getting stronger.  Today he is a normal, sweet, loving and precious member of our family.  We call him our miracle baby because of his strength.  Doctors are amazed he is right on target for his age.  We are thankful and blessed beyond measure.  God has been good to us!  Happy First Birthday, John Dale, you are loved and will always be my "Monkey!"  We also celebrate Ramsey Kaye, my "Angel" in heaven, a much better place. We love and miss you, my precious girl.  Thank you so very much for your comments on my photos. Donna
August 27, 2014 Lotus seed pod on the lake.  Thank you for your comments on yesterday's hummingbird.   I am filling 4 feeders twice daily to keep up with them.    The photo guild meeting last night was great.  They gave a demonstration on long exposures that was very informative.  I can't wait to experiment a little in BULB mode.  The light painting portion was fascinating.    Happy Wednesday! Jeanne

Violin Posted Aug. 27, 2014  One of my favorite images from the violin project. I am working on a collage and then this project is complete.

08.27.14  Another shot of Lovers Point. I liked the splash if color.  Busy day at Huntsman for me. I get blood drawn. See the Oncologist. Maybe infusion--if the numbers look right. And finally, I meet the new surgeon for the first time.  Thank You for the comments yesterday. Too tired yesterday to get back and comment here. SOrry.
26.08.14 - The Colonel  I'm experimenting with publicity postcards matching stills from Tell Them of Us with quotes from the letters on which the film is based, this is one of the first. The letters written by Robert Crowder from the Front are part of the family archive that was collated by his great nephew Robert Holland, seen here in a cameo role. Once we noticed the resemblance between Robert and the Colonel mentioned in his great-uncle's letter we just had to get him into costume and show off that moustache!
