“Will ya looky there Junior…them’s called bipeds. If’n it t’were huntin’ season, I’d show ya how to cook ’em real good in lots o’butter!”
“Hey Ground Walker! Can’t you read?? You can’t park here! Just look at ’em Ralph…think they own the joint!’
“Good grief, can’t fly ANYWHERE around you bitches!”
“Oooooh, look at that jet Pops!”
“That ain’t no jet kids…that’s your cousin George”
“Ma?  Where ya going Ma?”
“Louise, get back here!”
“No worries Pops…I’ll get her.”
“Jeez Louise…can’t a fella visit his relatives?”
“Hey Georgie…you can come visit me. I’m free as a bird tonight. Dinner?”
“Whassat? Let me just clean my ears, thought you invited me to dinner.”
“Well, alrighty then! I’ll just hop, skip, and a….

“I don’t get the whole beach thing Dorrie, do you?”
“No, me either Handsome. Why hang out in all that sandy muck when you can lounge around with me surrounded by all this love stuff?”
“Gee, I wonder if he’s noticed I’ve picked out the wedding bouquets? Oh Handsooooome? Wanna play Peek a Love-Dove?”

Hi everyone! Welcome to 50 Shades of Gray Hair. 50 Shades is my blog of life over the hill, where each day is full of delicious opportunities to earn another gray hair. I stopped declaring war on the gray when I began this blog years ago. Instead, I embrace and celebrate them along with whatever life decides to throw my way, with (sarcasm forward) humor and an optimistic eye to the future. I think. I hope? I don't know. At any's real, it's honest, it's full of 4 letter words, and it's me...on a platter. I sincerely welcome you all to my porch....♥♥Rhonda

  1. What an eye you have! Every shot was just gorgeous and I love your captions with all of the birds! Looks like everyone had a wonderful time! I would imagine it will take you a while to transition back to real life after a trip like that. Have to keep reminding yourself that at least you had the experience – and now you have the beautiful memories. I hope you do something more with the photos you take – so many should be framed and hanging in your home!

    1. Thank you my sweet friend. I really dig it when I can eek out a little storyline…it’s almost as fun as taking the pictures 😉 I believe we all enjoyed the week immensely and know everyone got out of it what they needed. I do frame some of my photos, and likely will do some from this trip. One thing I always do though, is have photo books made for everyone and am working on those right now…takes a lot of time, but it’s a labor of love for sure. xo

      1. I’ve made those through Shutterfly and think they’re great as well. Glad to know you all had such a nice trip – thanks for sharing it here! And Happy Mother’s Day a little in advance. xo

  2. Wow, that is some really awesome photography, SB! I like the funny bird shots, got a laugh out of those ones, but mostly really enjoyed the photos of your family having fun (and boozing it up a little bit before a snooze). You really really know how to take a picture, and how to make a poor shivering Canadian long for the warmers spots in the world.

    1. Well thanks NB! Appreciate the kind words. And I can tell ya, that booze shot wasn’t a 10th of what was there…lol, at least in the beginning 🙂 It was beautiful, but just to make you feel a little better…never got out of the low 70s and the last two days were overcast. Help any?


    1. sounds like you found a post and not a page. if you look to the far left of my page…you should see three stars in a black border…one of those stars will bring up a menu of photo projects


    2. Sorry, not on the left…forgot I moved it. Right under my header image…HOME ABOUT 50 SHADES and then there’s PHOTO SHADES…that’s the menu you want 🙂


Nice-n-Easy...but tell it like it is
