Inspiring or Invasive

 

image

I love these yellow blooms, my husband says they’re invasive . . .

The theme is “Bokeh” . . .

and I love yellow flowers . . . which has nothing to do with it!

America

I snapped this photo last week as our local National Guard

was deploying to Kuwait for a year of duty.

This young lad tugged at my heartstrings as he held his Dad in a deathgrip.

I posted it on Facebook for all the participants to view and was contacted by

his Mom. Her identification of their son made it even more special.

 

Please support your local soldiers and their families!!!

Deer Derrieres, Etc.

 

This may be the oddest post in blogger history!

Yes, these two photos are Deer “Derrieres” or at least they were. . .

I talked to a great couple who had a taxidermy business Friday . . .

No, they did not “kill” these animals, he preserves dead animals. . .

I think I appreciate a “twisted” sense of humor ! ! !

because these stopped me in my tracks and I just had to find out

if they were what I thought they were . . . yep . . . that is what they were

If anyone is interested, contact me and I’ll email you his info.

His work was really beautiful.

Now for the fun stuff. . .

You know that I love photographing people,

young or old, it doesn’t matter to me, I think everyone is

beautiful in their own unique way...

Here are some people who stopped by our Republican Booth at

the county fair Friday night. . .
