Laylabug and Granpa, on her SIXTH birthday

(Yes, it’s been some time since I have blogged. I guess I haven’t had anything nice to say, and that’s how I was raised 😉  )

TEN YEARS ON…. (The following is LONG. It is emotional and it is depressing. Since I started blogging, I have written something about the events of 9-11, and I have linked to a website where a very small part of the following is posted. This year, I have simply consolidated the entire scrapbook and writings that are in it, and created a new gallery on my photo website so all is viewable and archived.)

It turns out I can’t ReBlog something more than once. So, HERE is my September 11, 2011 blog post…  written SIX years and two days ago, on the eve of Laylabug’s birth… six years of absolute joy and wonder, while right outside that little bubble of love, life goes on in all it’s “LIFE-GOES-ON-NESS” …. good and bad, happy and sad things…16 years since America changed.

Photos of the week, Week 6, 2017

I don’t know about your corner of the woods, but over here spring made a pretty good attempt at showing up (a day before dropping to a frigid, windy 18)… That’s February!

Qu16729177_10212688438429817_4192180882954685752_nick advert. 🙂 I am now offering almost all of my images on phone cases! I ordered one the other day and I am suitably impressed with the construction and print quality. The price is competitive with places like Cafe Press.
(Images do not arrive with watermark.) Take a wander around the galleries on my site and choose something colorful and new for your phone today!  I may not have all Weekly images up and available. Contact me if one you would like as phone case or large print is missing. /commercial 😉
