Sorry for the delay in responding everyone. New internet provider/email program so I've had to update ALL my online memberships, transfer email files and notify everyone about the change..a time consuming task, but not unpleasant.


HI Gary!! Thank you !!
I value your comment, Gary! Many thanks for taking time to be so kind! Ok, you can have a peek inside my brain...do you really want to be corrupted?? ;?)

HI Cheryl!! Thank you so much! My "me" changes daily..always evolving...forever changing! I'm not stuck on any particular style so you might see some funky stuff one of these days! Thanks so much for commenting! Always appreciated.


Thanks so much, Judy!! How nice to receive such complimentary comments...little gifts I treasure and value. I appreciate your kindness.

Greetings Joy!! Thank you for taking time to comment. And such a complimentary one! If you only knew how much I value them! Happy shooting!

HI Murry!! And a special thanks to you also! Am privileged to be the recipient of your complimentary post. Very much appreciate all your time....you're so generous!

HI June Marie! Isn't it finally about time we've had a break in that cold snap?? Was tired of the daily challenges this weather caused (though I prefer cold snaps to heat waves any day!)...the extra home fuel, the 1/2 hr car pre-starts, the extra bundling up....am glad we're getting a break!
Many thanks for be so sweet ....I appreciate very much that you take time to comment. Happy shooting!

And last, but certainly not least, a great big Thank you for you, Kerry for allowing me the privilege of being the recipient of your professional opinion. Coming from a photographer I respect and admire, I value your post immensely! Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to give to me. I appreciate the effort more than you know.

Thanks so much, dear Shelley! I was totally blown away when I realized that we had the same idea at about the same time...again!

Between you, Heather and Kathy Schneider...if I don't rush to do my ideas...you all are working on the same ones already! Must be telepathic! Of course I procrastinate often so if you make your ideas materialize..you all definitely deserve the wins and the credit!

Thank you, Donna! I'm sorry you were ill, but tis the season! Fortunately, none of us have been afflicted with as much as a cold so we can count our lucky stars. I insist on frequent hand washing at my house and hopefully, it reduced our chances of getting sick. My daughter is so tired of me asking her if she washed her hands after school! The invariable "Yes....Mmmmmooooom" with the simultaneous roll of the eyes!
