Hi Danielle! HeeHee...It was fan making this one and am very happy to re-enter it for our Laura G. :))


Dang! I blew my own cover, Stan. What the heck was I thinking?? I used to just tell folks I worked on the pipeline. Guess that will be a wash, now?! HA!

Good to "see" you all here!

Hi "peeps"! Hee, hee!

Thanks for having fun with me on this very special day for Laura G. :) If you don't know her well, she is one awesome lady and photographer! Please see her gallery!!!

I think I got the inspiration for this image from cartoons I used to watch as a kid...Remember those? Where there would be an eyeball at the end of the para-scope and the eye would turn very large if it saw something startling??? Then of course the bad guy puts dynamite in the scope and know the rest. Exploded cartoon character at the other end! Lol....

Laura, it is my great pleasure to honor you here! :) Hope your day and evening are a BLAST!

As you know, I am trying to save my laptop from permanently passing out at the moment. I have WAYYYYYYYYYY too many photo files on here and am almost out of room!


Thanks John, Jack and Michelle and great to see you Laura. You are very welcome!

-Laura Emmy :D

P.S. Funny, I never used to use my middle name until a good friend started calling me Em. Now it's so nice to see so many using it. I love the name "Emmy", Laura G.. :) TY!

Hiya, Pom! Another cool and creative birthday/anniversary greeting card. You certainly made Laura's day!
Your image makes me think of the kids' game on a roadtrip: "I spy with my little eye..." ;-D
Thanks for the smiles!

Hey Wm, Lydia, Bobby Ray, Mare, Doug, Steve, NN, Mumj, Gina, Emile and Tammers!

You guys are the best! (And you are very often my inspiration!)

You know, I used to read SPY vs. SPY a lot when I was a kid but I had never heard of the kids game "I SPY with my little eye" until moving to Canada and two precious kids I met up here loved playing it. OH MY! Every time I went to visit their mom for coffee, the kids ran to me wanting to play I SPY! :D

Emile I was thinking the same thing and am glad you said it. It does seem 3D to me too!

Well guys, I know Laura is enjoying your visits and Laura, I hope you had a great Birthday and Anniversary!
