Another Day

Another day of messing around with pictures, videos, and blogs.  I'm going to feel like a computer "whiz" any day now.  What fun this is--I just have to figure out how to share it with other Bloggers.

Dancing at the Movies - Music Video

Great video!!!!  Kenny Loggins sings Footloose while you  watch all the great dance scenes from your favorite movies.avorite movies.

Morning Comes

I'm so thrilled  to be blogging and posting things.  First of all, I was amazed that I got all this set up.  My computer skills are limited, but thanks to my persistent "messing around", I'm learning more and more each day and my confidence is growing.  I must say that eveytime I "click" on something, I hold my breath and cross my fingers that something will actually appear on the screen.  So far, so good.  I've enjoyed checking out other sites too--there are certainly some creative and talented people out there. 
Nothin but blue skies from now on---old song, nice lyric. Hope it holds true.

The brook just babbles
    Calming the protesting soul
        Causing but a smile.

Hubbard Glacier ---the silence is deafening as you stand waiting for a calving.
You hear a slow rolling thunder-like sound, and then a roaring crackle as an enormous chunk of the iceberg crashes into the ocean. An awesome sight indeed.

The Joys of My Life

Here I am!!!!!!

Beauty all around!

As you can see, I love flowers!  I have spent the summer taking photos of some gorgeous flowers, both in my yard and at Wichita Botanical Gardens.  The photos turned out far better than I ever would have expected.  I started another project after developing the pics--I made greeting cards out of them.  They too turned out much better than I could have anticipated.  The first 50 cards were made by gluing (good old Elmer's) the picture to the front of the card.  They looked good, but after several days the front cover with the picture on it started to curve out.  Needless to say, they did not look like "professional" work.  I was enlightened by a friend and switched to spray adhesive.  It worked wonders and the cards stayed "flat" and looked great. I have yet to find a "market" for the cards, but I continually am looking.  If you are looking for perfection,  just take another look at those perfect flowers and you can say you have found it.

I am amazed at the clarity of the reflection of the clouds in the pond.
Will the "real sky" please stand up.
You have to be "old" to understand that--it comes from an old Garry Moore (who?) TV show, "To Tell The Truth".

The Start of Something Good

This is my first venture into the "world of blogging"!   I think I will enjoy sharing my thoughts and ideas with others as well as receiving a wealth of information from all of you out there.   So, here's to a new adventure in my life.   I'll be "blogging" soon.
