I'm Ba-a-a-a-ack!

Haven't been blogging here lately... sorry! It seems the less time we have the busier we get and that's all I have to say about that. If you wonder where I've been, well... blogging over at Tittabawassee River Voice.

Sunday we were scheduled to visit Sharba and family because Lisa had asked the grampa (my husband) to be her photographer for her senior pictures. We were about ready to leave and we had a horrible thunderstorm. Lights went out... then came back on... but it was dark as night. I don't recall a storm where it was so dark in the daytime! For more about the storm see OttoSite... the storm was much worse out her way. She has some awesome photos of the results on her blog. We were really lucky... just that momentary power outage!

We phoned Sharba and, as usual, we were having the weather they had the previous night, so we decided to chance it and left for Muskegon. Frank took loads of great photos... and Lisa & her parents narrowed them down to 10 or 12 favorites.

I've photographed many sunsets... and pre-sunsets, but my biggest complaint is... beautiful as those sunsets are, they do NOT look like what I was looking at. Here, for your viewing pleasure, is a photo of the lighthouse at the channel in Muskegon - just as it looked at the particular moment I snapped the camera!!! Isn't it beautiful???


Well duh! Me finally LOOKING at Blogger again...

Unused Dock At Hackert Lake
...and see what I found! Not the picture silly, but Blogger made it even easier to put the picture up on my blog! Yes, I read somebody's blog telling about how easy it is but it didn't really register right away. I hadn't noticed the choices we now have when blogging... Edit HTML or Compose... either. I tried the 'Compose' mode and golly! It's even easier than before! Now I can do ALL the layout with absolutely NO HTML if I want to!

You don't even need to use 'Hello!' to put your photos in your blog. Even Jan can put pictures up with the "Compose' mode. Oops! I'd better check first. Maybe she needs one of the new formats before it will work. I'll be checking it.

Life is good since having my knees replaced. Our yard is shaping up nicely at home. First we had the 'remedial landscaping' done... then we started getting rid of some of the overgrowth that has taken place in the past few years. I'm talking about trees and bushes we planted on purpose. Now they've become too big and in some cases I just don't want them at all! It's like getting a fresh start.

Natalie and Emilio were over to help us with some of that cleanup with promises of more visits to come. This past weekend Pam & Mike came over to the cottage so Mike could help Frank finish building the new dock. They did it and it's great too! Rich & Emilio helped earlier this summer with installing the new bathtub... Remember that event? ...and we have Kevy signed up for some wallboard work at the cottage when the weather cools a bit and Frank is ready for another big Push! Who needs sons when your daughters have such great husbands, eh?


That New Eminent Domain Ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court...

...really brings out the best in columnists. Public 'interest' shouldn't mean money - by Chicago Sun-Times columnist Mark Steyn renewed my faith in journalism! This fellow tells it like it is and then tells us about a New Hampshire businessman, Logan Darrow Clements, who 'wants to build a new hotel in the town of Weare and he's found just the right piece of land: the home of Supreme Court judge David Souter.' Mr. Clements would name it the Lost Liberty Hotel, with 'a Just Desserts Bar and a museum dedicated to the loss of freedom in America.' Oh come on! If you can hold your anger about the Supreme Court decision, you might actually get a laugh out of this one.


Get your list here...

..26 Things The Photographic Scavenger Hunt - July 2005 Did you do the last one? Well, that's okay.. nobody's perfect.. not even me. BUT I haven't missed any of Tracy's challenges, I don't think. My first was 'The MayDay Project.'

Was that her first one too? Okay.. I'll answer my own question. Tracy doesn't have the MayDay Project on her list which has always been 26 Things, I guess. Here is the list, which she just posted.
