Day 31: What Harlee did yesterday!!! Part Two…

Meanwhile, back at Nana and Papa’s house…Presents! First, the assortment of hand made goodies from Tante Knick Knack. A dollie with clothes and a blanket, with Ariel one one side and Tinkerbell on the other! And then on to more stuff! But wait!  It is Mommie’s burfday tomorrow, too!

Day 31: What Harlee did yesterday!!!

(Posted a little late since it should be Day 29 or 30, but live with it!) Yesterday, the 29th, was Toots’ birthday.  She turned the Big Three.  No “O”, just three.  So we went to lunch at Chili’s… The pre-lunch entertainment…or lunch in Lugnut’s case. Fairy wings with a Fairy dress.  What do you think […]

R.I.P. Spirit! (sort of…)

Spirit is done a ‘rovin’…Probably lived longer than the Manufacturer’s extended warrantee, let alone the usual 90 day one! Spirit, NASA Martian Exploration Rover, Dies at 6 (Earth Years) NASA’s Martian Exploration Rover, Spirit, could not pull itself from its sandy resting place on Mars and has been downgraded to an operational science station. While […]

Day 27: The Sledding Party, Part 1

Kirsten and Tim decided to take the two urchins, Toots and Lugnut, sledding down at Giant Springs State Park. It was a good thing someone knew where to go! (1/640, f8, 50mm, ISO 100, Cloudy White Balance preset) (I did play around with the exposure settings a bit…) I wish I had my GPS… (1/320, […]
