As the end of fall approaches, I decided to grab the hubby as my driver (the only time I give up the wheel is when there’s a camera in my hand, and then, not always) so I could do one last Drive By Shooting…
From my home in the Northeast Kingdom to the metropolis (that’s the ‘big city’ for some of you) of Burlington, I took these on the fly.
I could have had him stop so I could compose, and I could have doctored them once I got home…
But these are raw and real and that’s just the way I like my drive bys…
I do hope you enjoy my the last hurrah before the snow flies.
I cannot, in all honesty, say it thrilled me when I heard the kids had gotten a Trampoline.
With a 12-year-old and 3-year-old on that behemoth bouncy bone breaker, I had visions of head wounds and little fingers and toes caught in the webbing, and mid-air collisions that would result in trips to the emergency room.
However, never let it be said that Grammy Rhoni is not one to ‘give it a chance’.
So, on many a morning during our recent trip to almost heaven…I sat with my trusted and constant companion and just watched.
I’m glad I did and hope you can see why.
My laddie is definitely a TRAMP!
So…I guess the lesson here, for all you Grams and Gramps out there…look before you leap; to conclusions that is.
Supervision, common sense, and a love for life is all that’s needed to make this a safe place to be a TRAMP!
It’s been over a year and a half since I’ve seen my grandson Alex, who turned 3 in April. I can think of nothing I’d rather do than share the next few days with you as we get reacquainted and fall in love all over again…
As this is the time for new beginnings and new adventures for me…I’ve decided to just do it.
I’m doing it.
I’ve done it.
Those that know me already, know I have a special friend. My constant companion, whom I call CC. We spend quality time together every chance we get, and I’ve shared many a special moment of that time with a lot of you in my earlier life. This relationship is one of fun, reflection, surprise, beauty, sadness, and glory. This special and dear companion is my camera.
Now…a fellow blogger and similar-minded friend rodposse, has put into place a photo challenge on his blog. It’s now in its 7th week and the first one in which I am entering, and it’s a fantastic idea. Win, lose, draw…makes no difference. This is a terrific avenue to take to find new friends, appreciate great photos, and experience how others’ points of view can take you completely by surprise.
I invite you to visit rodposse, enjoy the captured moments in this week’s challenge…which is the element WATER. But stay awhile and visit the past challenges, as well as his own photos. It’s well worth the time.
Become a participant if you choose to do so, by following his simple rules for submitting your own photos. I know more than a few of you have a great eye and take some stunning photos. Go have some fun!
Or if you’d rather, just share your opinion by clicking on the like button for your favorite(s). Simple.
But if for no other reason, visit just to enjoy the view.
This is the link to the challenge (and I’m shameless here, but this link will take you to my entry…However, you can navigate very easily from there, honest)
