Hi Monica: This is wonderful, a new friend, a wonderful trip and no jet lag.
I have been working on my photos so that they would be in order when you decide to look at my gallery. While I was gone I had a friend enter one a day into Better Photo for the contest, and they were not really edited to my liking but if she did the work it would not really be from me. So there are 3 plants and two Pismo Beach and one car photo that need some work.
We landed on time in S.F., but made it on the road just in time for the commuter traffic, got home about mid-night.
I felt really well on Tuesday, Wednesday was tough, but back to normal the last two days.
I want to give you the info to get into my gallery: p/w BDD8A.
When I arrived home, I found an award for second place for May, I was really happy. I can’t wait for you to view “Desertscape”.
I bet I am the fastest friendship you have ever made, I am so glad.
My best, Merna Nobile


Merna L. Nobile July 01, 2011

Hi Lisa: Well I bet this has never happened to you before. You just received a message from the resident ding-bat that was for another friend of mine. I am so embarrassed; I hope that you will forgive me. Now on to the next two people I just offended. My best, Merna #9500049

Merna L. Nobile July 01, 2011

Congratulations to all of the Award Winners for May 2011. Merna #9500055

Lisa J. Boulden level-classic July 01, 2011
