The Brief Life of the Snow Kids in Pictures

The Brief Life of the Snow Kids in Pictures
Originally uploaded by Aunt Owwee

If you like to shoot pictures, life in Michigan can get pretty black and white in the winter. We have to amuse ourselves the best way we can.

Therefore, we create . . . snowkids!

My brother's Pic of the Farm

A country boy can survive!
Originally uploaded by wash52121

I had my nieces overnight last night for a mega-scrapbooking session. My brother and SIL came out today to pick the girls up. Boo walked back in the field a ways and took a picture of the farmstead. Feels like the turn-of-the-last-century?

Margarita Day?

The things we learn from our blogging buddies. Thanks, Roscoe!

You Are a Strawberry Margarita

You're so sweet it's a little overwhelming, and people are a little afraid of corrupting you...

It's a little difficult to imagine you with a margarita. And you're truly a different person after you've kicked back a couple!

Hmm, now that's surprising!

You Are Coffee

The sexiest thing about you is your enthusiasm and stamina.

You always say "yes" to your lover and are hard to tire out.

Because of your high energy level, you are best in small doses. Too much of you is too much of a good thing.

You may not get tired, but you're likely to wear your partner down.

Lifted from the "chili" Roscoe.

Voices from the Past


I like to flickr. Most of my family is now on flickr, and sometimes interesting things happen with posts. Take this little book, for instance. It's a tiny devotional, about 1" x 1/2", and I shot it at my last studio shoot. It belonged to either my great-Grandmother or great-great-Grandmother. An interesting set of comments came when my brother (Magoo) saw it.

Mr. Magoo says:

Aunt Owwee says:
oh boy. good eye magoo . . . good eye

Mr Magoo1 says:
Yep...I had just turned in Kim's and my letter stating that we want to take a leave of absence next year and my gut was churning...kind of cool

Magoo and his family are going to Ethiopia next year for a short-term mission project.

The words at the bottom of page 64: Be at peace among yourselves

Our Small World

There are massive fires in Australia. A dozen years ago, this would be a news item noted and probably forgotten. Oz is on the other-side-of-the-world.

Now, thanks to the internet, this is a matter of grave concern to friends. My great longtime internet buddy, Julie, is reporting on fires in the areas near to her relatives. Our thoughts and prayers are with them. Julie has been a friend before blogging...we go back to an old Kevin Costner Yahoo group.

Same as five years ago

A Valentine's Day Walk In the Woods

From five years ago

i have never heard of this

Ottava rima? Me? That can't be right!
   Too frivolous? But tut, there's no such thing!
Let others ponder thoughts of wrong and right,
   Or sit and think how much they love the spring;
I'd rather spend my time in gleeful spite,
   Or maybe laugh, or maybe sit and sing.
Besides, it might be fun to be inspiring -
But surely it would get so very tiring.
What Poetry Form Are You?
