Shades of Gray

I thought I’d be clever

When naming my blog

50 Shades was trending

With its wanking and snogs

I know it’s not porno

This little blog of mine

But it can get racey

When I’m into my wine

So when a day does come

That I can spend all in Gray

I feel I must share it

In my own special way

So I hope you enjoy it

These little snappy spurts

50 Shades of Gray(tone)

Trust me…it won’t hurt

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....โ™ฅโ™ฅRhonda

  1. Holy Moses these are good. I ee that you love the Bald Eagle. All the shots are wonderful but I especially like the old houses falling into disrepair and the old church is perfect. I’d like to see more of the B&W pics which happen to be my favorite media for about half of my best photos. I just don’t have mine on digital but hope to remedy that before I kick the bucket. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh and your poem is a good one too.

    1. You are so sweet. It’s good to see you…I’ve been MIA for a while, so it’s always nice to reconnect ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks so much, I love eagles and have been hunting them for a while, scouting out places I think they nest. I wish I had a better zoom lens…one day I will…then I’ll get up close and personal ๐Ÿ™‚ And b&w is fun to do…so many different ways they can come out…but always looks good with the old buildings I look for.

      1. I’d love to see more old buildings like these in this post. There is nothing in my blah, central Texas area that compares with your subject matter. It just “aint” here. East Texas maybe but I don’t have the leisure of driving over 100-150 miles to look for old buildings. We have a few nesting Bald Eagles around some of the lakes but I no longer have a telephoto lens of more than 200mm. I wish I were about 10 years younger and I’d invest in one. But alas…

        1. I have a lot of old barns and buildings…a lot of history here on the east coast ๐Ÿ™‚ I do have some photo pages on my blog…look to the left menu area..hover on the stars and one of them is pages of photos. One of them is about barns I think…Barn Dance. But I’ll work on an old building post for ya!

  2. Found the barn post by typing in old barns in the search box. I commented on them over there. Never did see a star to hover on. But then I am not seeing very well. Had second cataract surgery last week and need new glasses but can’t have them for six weeks. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Wishing you a speedy and full recovery from your cataract surgery. No fun getting older. Glad you found the barns…I’d forgotten I’d moved the menu so it was my fault you couldn’t find them ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks again

  3. I see that you sent me one or two links but I can not copy then because they do not completely show up in my admin. notices. I have no idea where to find them on your blog so I am letting you know here at the nearest place I know to leave a comment. Have you tried to fix it yet or is it my blog that is having a spell? You are the only blogger that this is happening to on my blog. Gee aren’t modern technologies a pain sometimes? You can email me also.
