Post by: CutebutPsycho on January 16, 2007, 11:25:26 PM
Hi everyone!

I am new here so if this "isn't done" here please just let me know. I would like to start a thread for those of us who enjoy pictures to share what we've got. Right now there is a whole herd of elk in my yard and if anybody is interested, I would like to show you the pictures I took.

Anybody else like photos?

I will wait to start posting them, so that I'm not boring everybody to tears if you don't want to see them.  ;D

A whole herd of elk in your yard?

I, for one, would love to see it.

Modified to add: Time for a Coffee Break would be a good folder for that sort of thing, i think.

I will start by posting a pic of the HAWK that was in my yard a few weeks ago, feasting on a poor pigeon.  My little dog found some of the remnants - luckily we got to them before he did!

They're beautiful.
That's something i would never see in my "back-yard."

Post by: sparksals on January 17, 2007, 01:03:16 AM
I would think it was beautiful if it wasn't the type of bird that could pick up my little dog, carry him away and eat him for lunch!

Actually, the hawk looks like a large robin red breast to me - but he had a much more evil look on his face! LOL  I tried to get a pic of his wing and tailspan, but he moved too quickly.

Oh I LOVE taking and sharing photos!

Since the theme seems to be "nature," here are two of my nature shots - the first is the hawk that lives in my backyard, maybe he is friends with sparksals' hawk!

The second is this strange squirrel that also lives in my yard. His tail and body are two different colors!

Those pictures are gorgeous. Squirells are most of what i see lately. They dig up all my plants, but i love the little guys. They're so fun to watch play in the trees in Spring & Summer.

>sigh< those pics really make me miss living in a rural-type area.

YAY! I am so glad there is some interest here for the photo thread, and I am a nature girl all the way! I love the hawks, they are so beautiful aren't they? As you will see in the photos, I live in a great big meadow. In the summer, mice and other rodents abound, so the Marsh Hawks are EVERYWHERE!

This herd of Elk is called the Takhini Herd, named after the river that runs about 500m away from my house. The first picture is when they are wayyyyy on the other side of the yard from my house. I estimate about 110 of them as I got about half of them counted and gave up at 55!

Wow Rose!  I'm surprised the hawk hasn't had the squirrel for lunch!  I don't know if hawks in your area are carnivorous, but here, they will attack rabbits, cats and small dogs (literally pick them up, fly away real high, then drop them onto the ground to kill them to eat).  Many people with fishponds lose fish frequently because the hawks are hungry. 

Since I saw him, I always pan the yard ahead of time to make sure he's not around so I can let my dog out.  When there's no birds around, I get really nervous because they go into hiding.

Aloe he is adorable!!! Great photo! That chipmunk looks much larger than any chipmunks we have here. I love how their stripes are so defined! His little paws are the greatest.

I like this next one. The quality is not great but the look on the elk's face is priceless!

This is my favorite wildlife photo I have ever taken... (oops ok so there are two that are tied :) )

Madd Hatter, GREAT shot! They seem to be different than the elk in my neighbourhood, maybe a different type of elk? Obviously not from the same neck of the woods! What part of the world are those elk in the farm located?

This is in my yard in the summer. Not alot of wild flowers at the time of year it was taken. I have some great ones with the fireweed blooming though that I can share when I get back home this afternoon.

About once or twice every 2-3 years, IIRC.

(I lived in Israel when I was in 4th-5th grade... In Jerusalem, actually... and it snowed then.)

These photos were taken when we went to Sedona for our 2nd wedding anniversary.  We got married there and went back to stay at the Inn where we got married.  They were taken on a sunset tour of the red rock mountains.  CRUD MONKEYS!! It was the scariest experience of my life.  We were in a jeep, the road was rocky, narrow and twisty/turny and very ledgy.  It doesn't help that I'm terrified of heights!

LOL about the windsock! This is in my mom's backyard.

I have lived here for most of my life, with the exception of a year after graduation. This has alot to do with how a person can handle the winters here. I live in the bottom of a river valley and when it is -40C in town it is generally -50C at my house. So I make sure that my car is plugged in so it will start in the morning to get me to work. I have about a zillion layers of clothing, half of them in my trunk and half in my house. So I am always prepared to go outside when it is cold enough to freeze one's nostrils shut after one breath!  :)

We don't have 24 hour darkness here, I think the max is about 18 hours of "true" darkness. But for a few weeks in December it never gets lighter than what I would call "dusky". Once again it's something I am just accustomed to. I do tend to need alot more sleep in the winter, I call it hibernation phase. About this time of year I get VERY happy to see a bit more daylight and some actual warmth to the sunshine we get, and these days I am getting very anxious for spring to arrive. (still four or five months to go until the snow will be gone) I think more people have trouble with the 24 hour daylight in the summer because they can't sleep. I LOVE IT! I work and play an average of 21 hours a day in the summer because I just don't get tired! Almost like I have solar power or something.

This is in my yard in the summer. Not alot of wild flowers at the time of year it was taken. I have some great ones with the fireweed blooming though that I can share when I get back home this afternoon.

Sorry not to have gotten back to you, forgot about all the great pics!  Thanks for the bump Pixie!  I'm not sure what kind of elk they are, but we live in west central Minnesota, soooo....lol

Fireweed, those are some great pictures.  I've always loved nature and dreamed of living somewhere like you live, even before I had the experience to travel out west.  Of course when I did travel out west and got a chance to see many of the beautiful unpopulated areas, I feel in love.  Unfortunately I was born in NJ (at least I am in the southern part where there is some open space left) and am settled here with my husband so I won't be moving.

Here is a sunrise and some sandpiper birds that I took when DH and I went to the Bahamas.

Thanks Emmy! I feel very lucky to live where I do. Where else can I wake up and have half a dozen elk outside my bedroom window? I am sure there are other places that have that, but each day it is a trip, realizing I have this in my yard!!!  :) Of course, I also have enough to snow to get me seriously stuck in the driveway a la last Thursday. (grumble)

AdakAK - great photos! I have spent alot of time in different parts of AK and love it! You know, I will always love being a Canadian but I have to say, Americans have customer service down to an art! At least... they do in Alaska, especially when they know you are a tourist! Anyway... I try to do a road trip at least once a summer around Southern Alaska. This summer I will be doing a fishing trip in Haines again YAY!

Some pics from my country of residence, Austria.  Hiking is the national past time here (along with watching ski races), and understandably, because the mountains are spectacular.  First, a couple of typical flowers found in any mountain meadow:

(http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a331/_bienchen_/SchweizerLwenzahn.jpg)

Schweizer Löwenzahn, a kind of dandelion.

(http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a331/_bienchen_/BartigeGlockenblume.jpg)

Bartige Glockenblume, a furry type of bluebell found at higher altitudes.

(http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a331/_bienchen_/Almrausch.jpg)

The beautiful Almrausch, which literally means "Mountain meadow drunkeness".  It covers huge swaths of mountains, but it is endangered because people keep picking it.

Here, a picture of a cloud coming over a trail we'd just crossed from a mountain hostel to a peak.

(http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a331/_bienchen_/KellerjochhtteundWolke.jpg)

And finally, a reason why you should never drive too fast in the mountains: cows are left to graze pretty freely all summer long.

I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to Fireweed and everyone else who has posted all those amazing and beautiful photos of your part of the world and a part of your life..they are beautiful!

Its not everyday someone can say 'Oh yeah,i have a herd of elk in my backyard!'*L*

Im Australian,so have never even seen elk in their natural environment! A few deer in deer farms here and there,but that's about it!

I love the chipmunk piccy(yet another animal never seen for real)

My favourite cartoon when i was little(and still now that i have a nearly 4 year old daughter)was Chip and Dale..so i couldnt do anything else but smile at that one!

Thanks for sharing everyone,and if i can ever figure out how to post pics(once i actually take them!*L*)then i might be able to share a few of my own from here in the western suburbs of Sydney*S*

You are most welcome. I love sharing my photos with people who like to see them. Actually that is one of the top reasons why I even take pictures.

Well if you're ever in my neck of the woods in December-February, stop by and meet the elk! lol

I had posted this one before but I see I must have moved it because there is a red X where it was on the original post.  My pup Jimmy contemplating making friends with the critters....

I love Canada(and the US too..have been to both for a very short holiday) and if i wasnt living here,then i'ld think i was in Heaven if i could live in Canada..might be in different parts of the world(of course!*L*)but i think there are some simular 'traits' between Canada and Australia..and not just the value of the dollar!*L*

Canada(and im sure many parts of the US too)is just stunningly beautiful..especially away from the cities where you can then get the chance to see and appreciate the natural beauty of the land and animals..and people in general too*S*

Hate comparing Canada to the US..sorry about that! Its just like saying that Australia and New Zealand are the same*cringe*


Speaking of NZ..another country i'ld love to see!


Thanks for sharing the landscape and animal pics. Great to see animals living in their natural habitat,and of animals that arent here in Australia(except perhaps zoos/farms etc)

Cant wait to see more!

Tee Hee, I love that too! He's been with me 8 years now and people still give me weird looks when I tell them that is my dog's name. He is named after Jimmy Buffett actually! Too bad he didn't inherit the laid back ways, he is really quite high strung!

Clearbrite... I would also love to see Australia, New Zealand, lots of the US really intrigues me. The place I want to go MOST is eastern Canada. Can't wait to get over there some day!

Thanks farfalla. I have a couple somewhere of Jimmy surveying the cows at the farm too. I haven't been able to find them though which gives me anxiety!  ??? I am sure they will turn up sometime. The tulip photos are AWESOME!!!

I don't have kids of my own but I always try to take pics of "my" kids whenever there's a special occasion.

These two are from last year's school play. The kids are dressed up as "people from the village". One of my colleagues bought the material and let them pick the colour (black and white or brown and white), then they could make themselves outfits in any "tribal" style they liked. The costumes came out fantastic! See the hat that the girl on the right in the second pic is wearing? That's a real traditonal Zulu hat, she just covered it in the material for the play. Dots on the face are not really part of many tribes in S.A., but the play was about a little Zulu boy who time travels to the future, so we weren't exactly concerned with authenticity!

This is my register class for this year... all of them. These were taken during our Art Competition, which is why you can see some in the background holding scissors, glue, etc. It's a collage I made from photos of them posed in groups, pasted together using PhotoSh0p. Two of them are not wearing their uniforms because they weren't there that day, so I spliced in pics from another occasion.

(http://zefrems.sytes.net/314159/tmar/pics03.jpg)

This is me with the boy who has the reputation of being the naughtiest boy in the grade. He's really not. Also, he has the most beautiful handwriting (print) that I've seen in a long time. I want to make a font of it. He thinks I'm joking when I say that. I'm not.

I absolutely loved Rothenberg, but I have to admit, my favorite bit was the crime and punishment museum. That was fabulous.

I love Rothenburg too. I was so sad when my friend (she's German but married to a US soldier)moved to Illesheim after her hubby came back from Iraq. Before she moved on post, she lived right off the square.
We still go there all the time but now I don't get to meet her for breakfast we just go to Bad Windsheim to have breakfast since it's closer.

I must confess that we haven't been to Neuschwanstein. We've been to Linderhof many times but we've been saving Neuschwanstein for when the boys get a little bit older. Both are on the Autism Spectrum and we know that the younger one couldn't handle the tour.
The last time we were at Linderhof, he freaked out about going up the stairs so I took him out and sat on a bench in the snow and let him put together his Kinder Egg toy.

Great pictures!  I think I'll post a few more...

This was taken in NY two summers ago.  We were on Liberty Island, and this was the view of Manhattan...it's hazy, but I think I actually like it better like this!

YAY! I am so glad there is some interest here for the photo thread, and I am a nature girl all the way! I love the hawks, they are so beautiful aren't they? As you will see in the photos, I live in a great big meadow. In the summer, mice and other rodents abound, so the Marsh Hawks are EVERYWHERE!

This herd of Elk is called the Takhini Herd, named after the river that runs about 500m away from my house. The first picture is when they are wayyyyy on the other side of the yard from my house. I estimate about 110 of them as I got about half of them counted and gave up at 55!

<waving at FWG>  Please email me the full res image file of the elk herd.  I have a folder for just for you in my screensaver program ;-)

I live in Waikiki & the view is of Mo'ili'ili and Manoa Valley with the Ko'olau Range in the background.

This is my favorite view from my lanai.  I love the way sunset colors the clouds.

Oh god I wish! No, I currently live in Los Angeles, but went to Maui last spring during fare sale season :) Maui has so far been one of my very favoritest places to visit, and I'm hoping to spend a bunch of time in Hawaii next summer.

Well, there are certainly a lot of ex-Angelenos living on Maui.  It's rapidly becoming as urbanized as Oahu, which I think is a shame, but probably inevitable.  Whenever I visit Kahului & Kihei, I feel like I'm back in California.  Lahaina Town reminds me of a plastic dipped amusement park, complete with movie stars who thinks they are incognito.

Our favorite getaway islands are Kauai and Moloka'i.  If we go to Maui, we'll try to stay in Hana because it's a welcome change of pace from Waikiki.  The airlines are having an interisland price war, so one way fare is as low as $19 this month.  We'd go "holoholo," but I would rather see Misty  8)

Please don't get offended, this is just a joke.  I grew up in Northern California.  There has been a water feud and rivalry between Northern & Southern California for as long as I can remember.

So my joke is:

May I ask where you live - it is MARVELOUS to look at.  I'm so homesick right now.  Hubby and I moved to Florida because he can't get around in the snow (Pompe's Disease) and I get so homesick for snow in the winter, beautiful leaves in the fall . . . .

I took these in May when the in-laws came for a visit.

This is the view from our hotel room balcony in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany.

This is Neuschwanstein...I took this from the parking lot.

This is also Neuschwanstein...This was taken from near where the bus left us. It was still a 15 minute walk.

Just for the heck of it.
Title: Re: Picture thread
Post by: ItZWhoUKnow on July 10, 2007, 03:15:08 AM
Yes we did!

I'm surprised that my family survived that day.
We drove from Garmisch and all was fine. We parked, took pictures and made our way to purchase tickets. This all too place arourd 1 pm....we bought tickets and our tour wasn't until 4:45 and my younger child wanted to go in the castle in a big bad way...but we had all that time to kill so we told him we were going to go to McD's about 4 km away...Well, this messed with the magical schedule of events that he had in his head so he melted down near the gift shops...(we were outside)
We  were stared at by some older French ladies who then talked about us...and I know enough French to know it wasn't kind.
Finally we get him calm enough to walk (he's almost 8, autistic and in general a tall kid so just picking him up while he's in his zone is not an option)...We made it to McD's and all was fine....
We drove back and got in "line" (you've been to Germany, lines don't really exist) for the horse-drawn carriages..Well, Alex was scared so we left our older son with the in-laws and found the bus stop.
Okay, that might have been the scariest bus ride I've ever taken.
Around 4 pm we finally make it to the castle and find the rest of our family (my hubby took a brief but exhausting trek down some stairs to take pictures of the Marienbrucke)
As you'll notice we still had 45 minutes to entertain ALex....That might have been the slowest 45 minutes of my entire life.
We make it in the castle and all seems to be fine until I notice  that Alex keeps putting something into his mouth...Yep, he had the bubble tape gum that his grandma bought him in his pocket and he was eating it during the tour. OH MY! I about had a heart attack. I was able to hold his hand to keep him from getting to it..I couln't make a big deal about it for fear of him having another meltdown....Finally, the tour ends and we make our way out of the castle...but we lost the in-laws and our other child.
We found other child and he wasn't happy that we were mad at him.
Finally the in-laws come out of the castle...this was a big problem during their trip, they kept forgetting that they weren't alone and had people waiting on them.
By the time we were all together again everything was closing down and we missed the last carriage, and by the time we made it to the bus, it had stopped running too. We walked down which would have been no big deal except the hubby decided that we should take the short cut (that is barely paved) and his step-dad just had knee surgery about 6 months ago...Yeah, he was in serious pain...

but it was (almost) worth it...:)

(sorry for the book)

Yay photos!  I wish I had looked at this thread earlier.  I love looking at all the pictures, and here are some of mine.

There would be my pup's very own snow bank.  He's very proud of it and glad his sister made it for him.  All nice and cold.

The sunset from Asheville at a hotel where my friend used to work.  We decided to wait until after her shift was done to wait for her to get dinner.  We're so glad that we did.

This is from around Asheville as well.  We could have gone in and swam, but there were so many people around that day that we decided to just watch the waterfall.  It looked so lovely to go into the water though.

(http://photos-747.ll.facebook.com/photos-ll-sctm/v40/228/116/78500747/n78500747_30070186_4657.jpg)

This is from the Biltmore House, in their rose garden.  It seems like a perfect cottage to just go hide away in.  I love the look of it.

That's all I have for now.  :)

He was crawling on people's shoulders and hanging out.  I had this weird fear of him for some reason, like he was gonna bite my ears or something.  Plus, he kept stealing my pink water bottle away from me!  But DH liked him.  Here's another with him and DH for ya.  :)

They are tearing down the old mill that's across the road from me. This is what used to be there:
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v724/chonsil/CloughMillBefore100dpi.jpg)


And this is the stage it's at just now:
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v724/chonsil/CloughMillAfter100dpi.jpg)

Architecturally not a big loss to the town. The old chimney stack is due to come down as well. Some people want to keep it as a historical marker, but personally I don't have any great attachment to it.

They are going to build 70 houses and flats in this space. That's a lot put into the area and they will be very typical of new developmens around here, but still, they will look much nicer than the old building and provide nice homes for people. And bring more residents into the area which I think will be nice. The area could do with a little economic kick in the pants.

And here's a lovely view of Segovia, Spain as seen from the Parador we stayed in at the beginning of July:

Another horse owner! I've been tempted to post photos (as if I had time!) of what I've been doing this past 10 days.  My 30 year old mare developed a hoof abcess and each day I soak it in betadine and water, then pack the hoof with a cotton wad with Epsom salts and betadine on it, wrap the hoof in vet wrap and then duct tape over it all.  Yesterday I went on a search to find an Easyboot to eliminate the duct tape since walking in it is destroying it.  Put the Easyboot on over the packing last night and it's working great!

This looks so fun, I just have to join in!  What wonderful pictures everyone has!  We finally got a really nice camera this year, so I'm sure I'll be posting more in the future.  I'll start with the amphibians :)

Here are some green frogs Rana clamitans, taken at a forest preserve near Chicago:

Here's Carrot again, the non-ghost version:

Her brother Bun, being typical:

This is Simba, who would have been on our Christmas cards if we knew more than 1 person who expected a card:

And finally, for the kitties, here's Broadway, not wreaking havoc for once.  She looks like a sweet little kitten, but she's really a fully grown big softie disguised as a cranky witch:

And here's Gravity helping us decide what to order for dinner:

Thank you Aquigoth.  I think my snakes are gorgeous too, although I know some don't agree :)  I've met a few people with Bun doubles.  Can you tell I like animals?

I promise to post some of my nice nature shots later, after I get my laptop fixed, these were just the ones I had handy on photobucket already.

I captured this morning's(August 28) eclipse with my digital camera. The pictures aren't Hubble telescope quality and the pictures at totality didn't transfer well from camera to computer(it was clear in the camera! Grr!), but you can still see the progression of Earth's shadow over the moon. The very last one did show a little of the beautiful blood red moon during totality.

Fun fact: The moon turns red during eclipses for the same reason our sky is blue! Our atmosphere scatters red light(hence the blue sky). If you stood on the moon during an eclipse, the edges of the earth would turn red like a global sunset :)

ItZWhoUKnow, you're bringing back good memories for me!  I love Paris.  The last time I was there (2002) we stayed at a hotel not far from the Obelisk, and IIRC, the one with your son near the round tree was at Napoleon's Tomb, right?

I want to go back!!!!   ;D

The tree was in the Tuileries Gardens. We had breakfast on Rue de Rivoli and we took a walk over to the Louvre and hung out for a bit before we caught our bus to Disney.
It was a quick trip. From start to finish we were only gone 32 hours. I'm still in shock that I survived the bus trip with two autistic children...only one meltdown from one child and that was when we had to leave...and I'm pretty sure that happens on a regular basis at Disney...:)
I'm taking them back in the Spring but it will be a longer trip where I actually get to see the inside of places.

Oh wow, you all have some fantastic photos!  Now I know where to come when I need a pick-me-up - these pictures just make me smile.  :)

I've mentioned in other threads that I went to school in Northern Ontario, so here are a few shots of my university campus.  I can't take credit, since they're from the school website, and all my pictures are trapped in my camera which is sans battery right now.  But they are gorgeous shots and make me both happy and home-sick, lol.

Yup, that's a waterfall on our campus.  At certain points along the route, there are rapids as well.  It's actually much bigger than the pictures make out.

And just for good measure, something totally unrelated but just as nice - our newest member of the family: Haiti.  Apologies for the poor quality.

Oops, my mistake ;D  We do get some very pretty birds here in Chicago, and there are a few flocks of feral quaker parakeets in the city, but it still amazes me that there are places in the world where you can actually see cockatoos and macaws and lovebirds and parakeets and such in the wild.  Someone showed me a photo once of a tree just full of cockatoos, and it was really amazing.  I love city life, but you sure do miss out on a lot :)

At least you have beautiful Scottish architecture to make up for the lack of Rosellas ;)

I live in the heart of Waikiki, which is about as densely populated as any place in the US.  A colony of feral finches lives in a large banyan tree in the open area between 5 buildings outside my lanai.  Every morning I listen to them singing.  I didn't expect to wake up to singing birds when I moved to Waikiki.  I used to live in an almost rural area of Northern California & enjoyed living "close to nature."  Now I realize that nature is all around us, even in uber urban Waikiki.

I love finches, and I know what you mean, but there sure is a difference between a wee finchy and a giant cockatoo.  We did get a woodpecker pecking my mom's yucca stalk a couple weeks ago not 10 feet from where we were eating dinner in the backyard.  He hung around for most of the meal ;D

I get woken up by finches too, but they live in my bedroom :)

Edinburgh architecture and history is stunning.

In Australia we lived in a big city (inner suburbia) but it was still packed with possums and other animals and incredible birds. My favorite was the absolute treefuls of galahs we would get every year.
Gallah became an Australian slang word for idiot or larrikin because of their behaviour. They get 'drunk' on fermented berries and screech and roll around on the ground- hilarious. Well maybe not at 6am!
Scottish birds are more dignified.
Last year we woke up to find three massive peacocks in our back yard confusing the cats terribly. They had escaped from a large, very old hotel and gardens a mile away. Again, must dig out the photo= cat-smells like bird, sounds like bird, but how to catch it! Will it fit through the cat flap?

I spent one day in Edinburgh, a few years ago, and I wish I'd had more time.  I always tell people that they HAVE to go to Edinburgh because even the bus ride from the airport is breathtaking ;D

We get possums in Chicago too.  Small world, eh?  One of them scared the crap out of my mother one night, rusling around on her back porch right outside the bedroom window.  She thought someone was trying to break in :)  No peacocks in the backyard, though.  The Gallah birds sound great, they must be fun to watch!

We just got a good camera this year, so next time I'm out somewhere with interesting critters I'll definitely try to get some photos.  I've gotten some great frog photos just in the suburbs, I think I posted them earlier in the thread.  We see lots of herons when we visit my mom's uncle in Michigan, usually close enough that I'd be able to capture more than a speck across the lake.  This is really making me want to grab the camera and head out for some pictures!

DH is from Milwaukee and he's the first member of his family in many generations to own a horse.  We live in uber urban Waikiki and Misty lives almost an hour drive away on Dillingham Ranch in Mokuleia.  It's not clear across the Island of Oahu, but it's close.  I see this situation as one of the advantages to living on Oahu:  We get all the benefits of a large urban city (concerts, good buses, lots of options for restaurants and shopping) AND we are just half an hour drive from the fresh country air ;D

There are more horses on Maui and one of the biggest ranches in the Unites States (Parker Ranch) is on the big island of Hawaii.  Riding horseback on the beach is close to Paradise.

It sounds lovely, if you aren't terrified of falling off the horse ;)  I never knew there were so many horses and horse owners in Hawaii!  Then again, the only thing I do know about pet ownership in Hawaii is that you can't have snakes because there are no native species and an escaped snake could wreak havoc on the ecosystem.  Isn't it funny what little facts we pick up?

That's true, too!  There are no snakes in Hawaii.  They say there are no venomous spiders, either, but I saw a black widow in a water valve vault on Ford Island when I was working on a project there.  Let's just say that, in general, there are no snakes or venomous spiders in Hawaii.  BTW - "nonvenomous" spiders live here and their bites are worse than a mosquito bite.  In fact, I think they are about as poisonous as the average tarantula (which isn't very dangerous).  My grandmother grew up in New Mexico and she had tarantulas for pets.  As she said, her family was poor & she could catch the tarantulas for free, and tarantulas are soft and furry and purr when you pet them.

The best and worst thing about pet ownership in Hawaii is that we have no rabies here.  This is good because we don't have to give our cats rabies shots & we don't fear getting rabies.  It's bad because of the quarantine requirements.  I have heard that these restrictions have been eased in recent years, especially for our military families.  We could not afford to bring our cat, Spooky, with us when we moved here 17 years ago.  It's also hard on people who would like to travel with their dogs.

Tarantulas are cute, aren't they?  I keep reptiles, and I try to be an informed pet owner (and I also just find it interesting), and I've picked up a lot of little tidbits along the way.  I didn't know that there weren't venemous spiders or rabies, though.  It must have been heartbreaking to leave Spooky behind :(

I suspected you kept reptiles from your avatar.  We have reptiles here (geckos, lizards, Jackson cameleons, etc.), but you can't bring your snakes with you on vacation.  I saw in the newspaper that one of the luxury hotels is catering to visiting canines in their effort to accommodate jet setters who won't go anywhere without their pocket pooch.

It must have been heartbreaking to leave Spooky behind :(
It was.  Fortunately my ex-husband wanted her back & promised to spoil her rotten.  He was a good friend but a lousy husband.

Yeah, I guess I make my love for reptiles pretty clear, huh?  I don't have anything as large as a Burmese python, though ;)  Just a couple ball pythons and a gecko.  The snakeys are somewhere around page 10 of this thread, by the way.

I'm glad that you had a good home to send Spooky to, it must have made it a little easier for you and the kitty.

I went back & checked them out (again).  Your Simba looks just like Spooky, down to the small white spot on the chest.

Hehehe, our cats have a lot of doppelgangers out there.  We usually meet little Bun-doubles, but there are also plenty of Simbas.  It's interesting to find one who looks SO similar, though.

Sims is our oldest, and we had him before the other kitties.  When he was our only cat, we fostered three kittens, one of which was another brown tabby & white (Gasho).  We kept the wee ones in the bedroom for the most part, to keep them out of trouble, but the few times we let them play together, Simba was fascinated by little Gasho.  He ignored the other two, and followed Gasho around, sniffing him, watching him, and making sure he didn't get into trouble.  It was so cute ;D

ETA:  Actually, looking back on my post, I think you might have gotten Simba and Bun mixed up.  I told you there were lots of Bun doubles    :D

Approx. central Wisconsin, on the south end of Lake Winnebago, lies the city of Fond du Lac.

View from 40' lighthouse at the beautiful city park:

Lighthouse view south over the yacht club. I love the shimmering water:

I think anyone who has a chance to make it to Wisconsin would love the trip.
Wisconsin Dells -- Popular family tourist city full of water parks, go-kart tracks, you name it.
Door County -- Beautiful peninsula jutting into Lake Michigan
Green Bay -- Lambeau Field (Go Packers)
Milwaukee -- Miller Stadium (Go Brewers), Southridge Mall (state's largest shopping mall), Milwaukee County Zoo, Mitchell Park Domes,
Madison -- State Capitol
Eagle River -- Snowmobile championship race
Do a search like Wisconsin+tourism.

Awesome pix. Just hope vandals don't arrive and leave their mark. Never saw roots wrap around tombstones like that ...they've obviously been there long while.

I hear that's a rather popular place. People are dying to get in.

It seems that vandals generally leave that place alone. Though we did get a huge storm recently that snapped a tree in half. It knocked over several headstones.

That's good. Around here not much is sacred anymore and a target for tagging or destruction. Even the Fond du Lac park would be spray-painted/vandalized in a heartbeat if it were here (Madison area).  We still get various "best place to live" accolades, but crime is increasing.

Many great pictures have been posted on this thread.  I wanted to add a few of my pictures as well.  Almost four years ago, a friend and I flew out to Vegas, rented a car, and explored Southern Utah and Northern Arizona.  The southwest is so stunningly beautiful.

Picture 1 is the Grand Canyon, 2 is Bryce Canyon, and 3 is Monument Valley.

geordicat, I don't know if you can do that with facebook.  I know it doesn't work with myspace, I think it's something to do with privacy settings and the fact that not everyone can access your profile.

If you have a photobucket account (there are other sites that do this too, photobucket's just the one I'm familiar with), you can upload the photo there, and they'll give you the link to post.

Handsome dog & chillingly beautiful icy branches, Romes.  I can almost feel the cold in my bones.

We've been hitting the low 60s/high 50s (degrees Farenheit) at night here in Hawaii.  We left the cold Mainland over 17 years ago & neither of us can tolerate the cold anymore.  My joints hurt when it gets in the 60s.

For those of you who pooh-pooh my sad tale because you are digging out of a 6 foot snow drift or your ice-laden tree fell down and blocked your driveway, please remember we don't have furnaces or fireplaces.  I feel your pain when I watch the evening news and see the icy roads and blizzard conditions.  It's just that there are days/nights when I would dearly love to curl up in front of a nice, warm fire.  Instead, I do laundry.  The dryer helps to warm our condo.

Post by: Romes7329 on January 15, 2008, 09:14:58 AM
Thanks everyone for the kind words about the pictures.  We didn't get hit with the amount of ice as other places did, but there was still a good inch of ice everywehre.  I literally skated to my car that morning and then had to chip my way into my car with my keys.  Took me around an hour to finally get my car drivable.  And hten they sent us home from work early because of an impending snowstorm (which never hit).  I was mad I wasted all that time getting into my car.

And of course Athena is amazingly photogenic.  I wish I knew more about Photoshop to play with the pictures more than just making them black and white.

Midnight Kitty, I know what you mean about the cold.  We don't pay for heat in our apartment so we have it as high as it can go (74 degrees) all day.  When I moved back to Boston last week, I moved in with my parents.  It not any colder here than it was in Iowa, but I'm freezing because my parents pay for heat and they keep their house at 66 degrees.  The 8 degree difference is amazingly chilling.  So I totally understand what you're saying about hitting  degrees that you're not used to.

Just in case Ulla doesn't see this request right away - what you can do to view a smaller image of the picture is right click on it, then select "View Image". It will open up in a new window in a slightly smaller size so you can see the whole picture.

He's actually a very big cat - about the size of a medium dog.  He weighs 6.5 kilos and that's where the vet wants him - he was 8 before and that was definitely too fat.  I think he was around 7 in the bottom picture.

(http://inlinethumb27.webshots.com/7706/2965231830100697520S500x500Q85.jpg)

I wasn't able to take a picture of the whole waterfall, as they are about 2 miles wide, but here's a section
(http://inlinethumb38.webshots.com/24165/2643731100100697520S500x500Q85.jpg)

This point was called "Danger Point", I guess because there was nothing stopping us from right to the edge.  Which we did.  Which was scary.

Yes, it's a gnome doll! I need eyes for it before I crochet it all together and stuff it, but so far it's cute!

I finally finished the gnome - I put together everything but the feet last night, and sewed the feet on between calls this morning at work. Quality is still bad because I used my cellphone; I have a feeling I'll have to break down and buy a new digital camera because the cellphone's just not cutting it!

This is Scarlet.  She died February 12, 2008 at the old age of 30.

Her pasturemate of the last 12 years was sad and lonely so I bought her a new companion which I named Phoebe.  Phoebe is 2 years old and about 36 inches tall.

Title: Re: Picture thread
Post by: Midnight Kitty on March 12, 2008, 05:12:25 PM
I'm sorry to hear of Scarlet's recent passing.  She looks like a fine lady.  That she lived for 30 years is evidence of the good care you provided her.  I hope Misty enjoys as long a life.  I heard there is a 40 year old horse at the ranch where Misty lives.  He is still competing, although he's a bit stiff.  I thought 30 years was a long life, and it is, but the fact that one horse is still going after 40 years gives me a goal!
Title: Re: Picture thread
Post by: artk2002 on March 12, 2008, 05:35:58 PM
The new girl is quite a cutie!

30 years is a great age for a horse and that is a tribute to your care and love.  I was privileged to learn to ride on a horse named "Trooper," who had been a jumper in the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City.  At the time that I rode him, he was 27 years old and still doing two or three lessons a day.
Title: Re: Picture thread

She looks like a fine lady.  

She was.  One of those "once in a lifetime" horses who carried probably hundreds of children on her back safely.  Her death signaled the end of a family era ....my children had known her since they were pre-schoolers and had had many adventures with her.  I decided to have her put down after she hadn't eaten or barely had any water for five days and her kidneys and heart were beginning to fail.  There was nothing the vet could do for her and she was euthanized quickly and humanely before she began to suffer.

Such a hard decision to make, but when you commit to care for an animal, it's not just for the easy, fun parts. She's lucky to have had you. Phoebe is really cute. Hope she's the dawn of a new era for your family.

I dug up my digital camera and found that I still have images from the Monterey Bay Aquarium (which I visited in September) on there. I'm fascinated by jellyfish, and I took a bunch of pictures of them. Enjoy!

(http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y170/sithgrl/DSCF0019.jpg)

and more jellies:

(http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y170/sithgrl/DSCF0016.jpg)

and still more jellies:

Hey look! It's more jel - oh, no, it's not, it's a blue tang, otherwise known as a Dory fish (from Finding Nemo)!

(http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y170/sithgrl/DSCF0050.jpg)

This serves as my desktop right now because I accidentally clicked the button to do that in iPhoto, but it still looks really cool:

A shot of a river otter from the "Wild About Otters" exhibit - which is about right, as I'm pretty crazy about them:

more images from the Aquarium. This one reminds me of the "jellyfish forest" scene in Finding Nemo:

this one's a little blurry, but to me there's also something somewhat...haunting about it:

(http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y170/sithgrl/DSCF0039.jpg)

another shot, this one of a different kind of jellyfish (sorry, I've forgotten species names, but if one of y'all knows them, enlighten me!):

VeraObsession, those Smoky Mountain photos are awesome. You and your DH look like you're having a great time. I used to go to Cades Cove when I lived in East TN. It's a great place. Are your jellyfish from the Aquarium of the Smokies?

I spent a year in England about 6 years ago (excuse me for a moment while I wonder where the time's gone.....), and when my mom came to visit, she decided to do some travelling within the UK.  I arranged to fly up to Edinburgh very early in the morning with her, and then fly home late that night, while she stayed there (I can only take so much of my mother).  Biggest mistake I ever made!  Even the ride from the airport to the city is beautiful!  I could easily spend weeks, if not months/years, just exploring the city.  One day I'll get back there.

I love the UK. Dearly and deeply.
My friends who were born and bread there think I'm nuts, but I can't help it.

Have you ever gone somewhere, arrived and instantly felt "this is my home"?
That is what it felt like for me the very first time I visited England. And every single time after that.

Pfft, you're talking to a Chicagoan here.  ;)  I would be happy if we even had a measurable quota of nice weather!  We had seven months in a row with snow this winter, and now that it's finally warming up a bit, it's only a matter of a few weeks until we get into the upper 90's ::)

Here are my cats, they are a 4-year brother & sister:

Being best friends (this is one of my favorite pics of them)

Oh!!!! The Union!  I love this place, this is where I went to school!  I spent many days at this union, not doing my homework.  During the summer, my friend and I would love to watch the ducks.  And during the winter, we would slip around on the ice.  This place has SO MANY good memories for me!  I miss it!

I took these Monday at Brookfield Zoo (yeah, I go to the zoo and take pictures of wild birds :P).  I put them in little virtual frames because we're planning on printing and framing them, and I wanted to see what it would look like.

I love red-winged blackbirds.  I think they're some of the prettiest native birds to the NE area of Illinois.  Too bad the photos I tried to take of them on our last outing didn't turn out.  I need to remember to bring a REAL camera and not rely on my cell phone.. :-[

If you ever print those, I'd love to have a copy!

Great pic, Aquigoth. Looks like it was an awesome trip. Those monkeys weren't aggressive, were they? I know sometimes monkeys in tourist-y areas get used to getting food from people and can get hard to deal with. I think that one is jealous of your hair color. I kinda am too.  ;D Welcome home.

Well, don't tell her about housebreaking, training, the usual lab energy :P
But do tell her that they're absolute cuddle bears and know nothing better than waking you up by licking your feet - it's so cute.

You could also show her these (but keep them from the kids, in case you do not want a doggie yet)

I just asked my ex.  It wasn't Szabo, it was the guy across the street.  Apparently, he was Szabo's assistant and then they had a falling out.

The boys are very interested in re-enacting.  The problem is that we're not really gun people and that's a requirement if you're doing CW re-enactments.

Courtney, that's so sweet!
My lab (who is now all grown and no longer as deadly cute as in those puppy pics I posted) lurves to sleep like that while I'm working. I have to be really careful when getting up so I don't roll over her paws or tail.

Rainha, that's what happened to us. Only, after seeing our puppy for the first time, I was won over and could not wait to take her home with me.

I'm not surprised, Magdalena!  What a cutie!  I showed them to BF anyway, I couldn't deny him the cuteness, but he says after working with so many labs, he doesn't want one anymore.  He says he doesn't want a permanent 2 year old ;D  I've been telling him that for years!

I love dogs, but I don't love the idea of walking them all the time and keeping them entertained.  We can get one when we have a house with a yard, so I can just open the back door for him on cold days :)

ETA:  Courtney, those pics are unbelievably cute!  I have to avoid this thread until all the puppies go away!

Well, you know I love you now - everyone who compliments my kitties becomes my new best friend  ;D  The yard lizards are fun - the cats like to watch them.  The best part is when the lizards fight - one likes to push the other off the deck.  The fall results in a loud TWACK sound when the falling lizard hits the pavement, but it doesn't seem to injure him in any way...  We've got lots of lizards hanging around/on the house...

Nox: Oh, Unicron is really capable of great poses. His fingers have pretty much full articulation and I have a photo of him flipping the bird somewhere, not HERE though for obvious reasons. But here's some funny ones: (click the thumbs)

Transformers: Animated Jazz naturally loves to party and play. So he starts out by teaching Unicron some breakdance moves. (Unicron is balanced against that case, he can't stay that way by himself!)

Doing that mysterious, sexy, manly pose. Especially while leaning against a sports car or some other rockstar-worthy bauble (solid gold humvee, diamond-studded swimming pool...). See mbt's DS's first pose for a lovely example of a man working the rockstar thing.  ;)

My brother Andrew, fishing for the first time in the OBX. He actually caught a little croaker and a crab right after this. It's because his sister taught him to fish  ;D

Since I know that everyone's been dying to know what Sirius and Mr. Sirius look like  ;D and we just got a new scanner, here's a picture from our wedding on 2 May 1998.  I still look pretty much like this, but Mr. Sirius now has a beard and a little hair around the edges.  He was in the Air Force at the time this was taken.

I gave Misty her first real bath last Saturday.  She has not wanted to get wet and has resisted all my efforts to hose her down when she gets sweaty.  She's 3-1/2 years old and she really needed a real bath with shampoo to get her clean.  Yesterday she had her hooves trimmed (she goes barefoot).  I guess one could say she had a shampoo and pedicure over the weekend.  Doesn't she look sparkling clean?  She's a red mare with blond "freckles."  Her mane was flaxen when we bought her at age 17 months (2 years ago).  Now, like so many of us that started out as towheads, her mane and tail darkened with age.

Thank you, CardenSaraid ;D  We think so, too.

My biggest challenge is not to spoil her.  I love to cuddle her head and cover her face and nose with kisses.  Then I have to turn around and make her give me my space because the last place you want an anxious horse is in your immediate proximity!

This is my mom's new horse! He's a thoroughbred ex-racehorse and she adopted him from a racehorse retirement program. His official name is "Premium Saltine" but we just call him Salty.  ;D

Salty is a handsome guy, KCee.  How old is he?

Those of us not involved in thoroughbred racing abhor the practice of starting horses so early, before their bones and joints are fully developed.  This often results in joint damage later in life and a shorter lifespan.  A horse's knees don't "knit" together until age 5.  Misty is 3 now and I won't ride her at a flat out gallop until she's 5.  Your mother is an angel for taking in one of these veterans. :-*

Isn't he beautiful?? He's 9 years old and had quite a career.

My entire family IS involved in thoroughbred racing, but we hate that they are started so young as well.  Salty has been racing since he was young, but escaped unscathed.  He is adjusting so well to being "just a horse" now, rather than a racehorse. He loves being turned out with the other horses for the first time in his life! 


ETA: My mother's favorite horse from when she was younger was named "Misty."  She still uses the name in her email address and handles for forums  :)

Oh, and here are some pictures from the first time DH (at that time he was BF) took me to England.  Because of my love for the latest Pride and Prejudice movie he took me to Chatsworth house, which was Pemberly from the film.  It was absolutely gorgeous!  And I got my picture taken with Mr. Darcy (well...kind of!)

The boys went with their mom to Gettysburg last week and had this photo taken.  It's an actual tintype, done with a 150yo camera and the original developing method.  The boys had to stand still for 12 seconds to get the exposure.

artk2002, I've only just seen this, and may I say that your boys look absolutely superb in their kit. They have the expressions down perfectly, too - it looks thoroughly authentic. :)

Luckily, there's a hose at the dog park.  I got most of the mud off there and, thankfully, I always have doggy seat covers in my car -- Bailey sheds and it helps with the fur buildup.  I couldn't believe how much dirt was still left on them when I got them home and bathed them!

This was my very first night fire. It was a huge tobacco barn. I got my leg pretty good in this one. We were pulling tin off the roof and a piece slammed into my thigh. I have a huge bruise. If I had been wearing jeans or something (for some stupid reason) it would have probably cut my leg big time, but the gear saved it. It hurt though. The fire was a week ago and the bruise is still there. I love it though!

Rei-chan, you're making my baby-fever ever worse!
She's gorgeous!!!!

Thanks!  I didn't mean to make it worse though!!!   :)

(If you want, I could record her during her "witching hour" screaming fit.....that might cool that fever a bit..... >:D )

Actually, I quite like the fever... just hope the symptoms get more concrete soon :P

Vera, I knew your DH was a firefighter, but I never knew you were.  I admire your courage.  I owe a lot to firefighers, a few years ago my apartment caught on fire and they responded very quick and were able to put the fire out before anybody was hurt or a lot of damage was done.

I joined back in July or Aug. Its awesome. We had another house fire today.....I think you smell like a hotdog when you get done. Its a huge adrenaline rush, kinda' like the one I get when I work in the ER. DH is a state fire instructor so he was able to do most of my training that I had to do before you are even allowed to respond to a call. It's been wonderful to do something like this together. I think he has surprised at how much I enjoy it.

This might belong in Cuteliness Beyond Belief, but here ya go.

This is the ex's and my Springer Spaniel, Annabelle.  I'd been sitting at the computer and she fell asleep on the chair legs.  She didn't even wake up when I moved the chair!

(http://i108.photobucket.com/albums/n35/aligatah/puppybelle1.jpg)

(http://i108.photobucket.com/albums/n35/aligatah/puppybelle2.jpg)

I know you posted this awhile ago, but these pictures took my breath away and I had to comment!  I had two Springers, and Annabelle looks almost exactly like my boy Robbie did - the coloring, the markings, that sweet little face.  You know, he never lost that short little "puppy" nose either, so he looked like a baby all his life.  He's been gone for a year now and this pics still gave me a real jolt.  I want to snuggle her!!!!

I'm glad seeing her brought back memories of your boy.  Annabelle's an awesome dog -- so very sweet.  Here's the latest picture I have of her (she lives with her father [my ex] in Atlanta):

She's 7 now, although you know when you give Springers a haircut it makes them look like puppies again.  :)

Wow!  She is gorgeous.  This picture and the second one in the post below it remind me a lot of him.

He used to have a habit of sleeping on the chair legs too, or anything uncomfortable that he could find!  He loved to lay on shoes, and once I found him using the vacuum cleaner as a pillow.

Hope no one minds if I share some of my babies too...

He would have been about 9 or 10 here I think:

Aw-w-w, that is so sweet.

I'm going to find the picture of Angel (a large white cat) washing GingerBear's face and post it.  GB was half Golden Retriever and half White Sheppard.  I had a cat (Spooky, black half Persian), my ex-H had a cat (Harlequin, calico), but the dog didn't have a cat of her own so we let her pick from ex-BIL's cat's litter.  GB picked a pure white kitten and adopted her.  Little Angel used to try to nurse, but GB was spayed, so no go.  Other than the year & a half that we had GB before she adopted Angel, they were inseparable their whole lives.

Never name a pet, or a child, any version of "Angel."  It's just asking for trouble >:D  Angel the cat was no angel, she was hell on needlesharp claws (instead of wheels).  Our niece Angela was a terror as tot, and although she has grown to be a fairly well behaved 13 y.o., she still has her "Avenging Angel from Hades" moments.  Her younger sister, Dana the Destroyer, seemed determined to wreck anything Angela left whole and the baby of the family, Katrina (they named the hurricane after her), seems determined to finish the demo work on their new home.

Haha...I LOVE their names!!!  I am terrible at thinking of names.  Mine are not as destructive as they could be, although the one in the picture has shredded every piece of upholstered furniture I own...

I got Robbie and the grey kitty (GK - the two in this pic, which is one of my favorites of them) one day apart, and they were utterly devoted to each other.  Shortly after I got her I discovered she was "with kittens" (no idea how old she was when we got her).  Two survived, but she got terribly ill afterwards - we didn't think she'd make it, and she obviously couldn't nurse or even bathe herself after coming home from the hospital.  Robbie would not only bathe her, but he kept stealing her week-old kittens from their "nest" and bathe them too!  I tried to keep him away, but he was ingenious.  The kittens ended up bonding to him - they would actually try to nurse, and he would lay there on his side like a mama dog and let them!  It was wild.

And thank YOU for bringing back some happy memories of my boy :)  He was SUCH a character, he had me laughing constantly.  I showed the chair pic to my sister and she had the exact same reaction I did...I don't know why, but it makes me so happy to see Springers that remind me of him...like there is a little bit of him that is still here, maybe?

They have a way of endearing themselves, don't they? My Lil is a bit of a "princess" about things, and she's one of those delightfully grumpy, but very playful dogs. She used to steal our underwear when we were younger, but she'd never destroy anything. That's what I love about her-- that, and the fact that she's so good as a companion.

It's really neat and I took some good pictures this year and thought I would share some. Might take more than one post though.

The ladies selling food. Most everything is fake but they actually had bread with oil to give to the people.

She is adorable.  If that is a "typical Joline smile," she must be a joy to have around.  She looks so sweet; Does she melt in the rain? >:D ;D

She is so much fun!  Especially now that she is into everything!  She loves to hug and I think she is jealous of me.  She is in love with her Grampa, with Diego, Boots and Spongebob!

Ok, here's what a normal morning looks like in our house.  Yes, it's me covered by cats.  Part of my head is covered cuz I'm being "leaned on" and I have a tail wrapped around my head.  The other one was laying down making sure my feet/legs didn't move, but when DH tried for the photo, she perked up - she's a bit of a ham :)

And here she is hamming it up on her own :)  She loves the camera :)

So, as some of you know, I gave BF a guitar for Christmas.  Her name is Martha.  Martha was a secondhand guitar, and thus had no fancy box, and I had to get a little creative with the wrapping. 

I bought a large, Christmassy gift bag, and planned to stand Martha up on her stand, and just stick her in the bag with some crumpled up newspaper to disguise the shape.  Unfortunately, come Christmas Eve, Martha was too tall.  When I tied the top of the bag closed, there was still almost a foot of guitar neck sticking out of the top.

So, to cover the neck, I stuffed a plastic bag with more crumpled paper, and stuck it on top.  However, seeing my nice Christmas bottom, with an upside down Borders bag on top, left me unsatisfied, so I taped on a big piece of wrapping paper.  I stuck a bow on the top, and surveyed my work.

We had a couple friends over, and all three of us thought it looked like a snowman or something.  So, I added a face made of bows.  Then, once the bows were on, we decided to turn her into an angel, so we made some wings out of an old gift box and some wrapping paper.  We stapled those on, gave her a gift tag necklace, and went giggling off to bed, looking forward to BF's reaction.  He was very confused and intrigued!

Of course, I couldn't let a creation like this go undocumented, so here you go:  Martha the Christmas Guitar/Snowman/Angel:

Cathy, your little ones are too cute :)  Jane must have really wanted that Easy Bake Oven!

We've had an unusual amount of snow here in Chicago, too.

On a totally unrelated note, I see you have Urban Myth.  We bought that at a thrift store and got it home before we realized there were no directions.  If at any time you're incredibly bored, would you be willing to PM me with basic instructions?  I bet it's a lot more fun if you know what to do :)

See how bent the trees are

These two will be 6 at the end of March, but they still have the same personalities. Matt is sticking his tongue out at Mom (taking the pic) and Andrew is looking on, horrified!

I went to Edinburgh last Spring and fell in love with it. Within two hours I had found a good Bed & Breakfast, a knitting group and a knitting store. I've never had that happen anywhere else I've ever been. I liked it so much that I canceled the second part of my trip and stayed in Edinburgh. My Mom was very worried that I wasn't going to come back.

Were those pictures taken around Arthur's Seat? I tried to climb it but realized that I was too out of shape.

Not Arthur's Seat, Blackford Hill where the Victorian built Obervatory is. You can see Arthur's Seat in one of the photos. Welive about a mile or less away from AS and can see it from our rear window.

We go up there a lot but I avoid the steep ascent!

Our daughter's 9th birthday is being celebrated today.  My husband, under cover of darkness and stealth of night, conspired with our neighbor down the street to make her gift this year.  This is what awaits her when she wakes up today:

She's going to love it!  She is a tetherball addict, and LIVES for recess at school so she can play.  Can't wait to see her face!

I don't know what kind of bird he is, but I do know that he is a jerk. He is my mother's bird, and I live 1700 miles away so I only have to see his big head twice a year. I hate that little bird, but to my mother he can do no wrong.

New BabyO pics! He's changed so much (these are pics from my phone, will post some new ones of the LittleOs when I get my digital camera fixed).

(http://i257.photobucket.com/albums/hh224/mrsohanlon/Image048.jpg)
Here he is pulling tongues (his latest favourite thing to do). We've had to start side-parting his hair, as it's too long to spike up and goes in his eyes otherwise. Time for a haircut, I think!!

In his Everton kit (MrO has been brainwashing encouraging BabyO to support his favourite football team already).

My little brothers had their kindergarten play tonight, which was something about celebrating the United States.  I'm stuck at work, so I didn't get to see them (I'll see the video tomorrow), but my mom already emailed their pictures from the show.  Matthew was Benjamin Franklin and had a bit part, and Andrew was the star of the show, as Barack Obama.  As you'll see in the pictures, he was not chosen for resemblance!  ;D

I don't actually think I have any "normal" photos of myself from at least the last three years, unless you count my railcard pictures... ah, I love being a geek :D

Thanks, Rainha!  We were up for over 24 hours (I was in the middle seat on a 4hr red-eye flight inbetween DH & another guy with big shoulders so I got NO sleep).  And my hair was all tangly at the bottom - figured out the hotel locker room had mixed up the conditioner with moisterizer  ::)  (we had a late flight and had to check out early so we had to shower in the locker room after the pool time).  DH said it looked the same color as the cat fur  ::)

Thanks, Archer!  While I can take some credit for making the veil, I really owe my BMs and a good friend for using about fifteen bobby pins to make sure it was sitting straight and didn't get too poofy.  I really wish the photographer had been in the cabin to catch a picture of them all hovering around me, cocking their heads from side to side, and going, "A little less on this side, a little crooked over here, no, a little more."  It was hilarious!

Thanks, Rainha.  Despite my screen name, I've yet to sneak close enough to a crow in the right circumstances to get a good picture.  There are some around here, but I always seem to be busy or have forgotten my camera when one looks particularly photogenic.  DH and I have discussed the possibility of looking into having one as a pet someday (how wishywashy does THAT sound, LOL!)  I'm not sure if it's legal around here, or how well they do in captivity.  I have heard of them being kept as pets, but no details.

And that Emu...well, he kind of looks like I feel most days!! ;)

So many cute pictures! 

CuteButPsycho, when I was little, my older brother told me that black squirrels were venomous.  Since he was generally a great brother, and didn't make up stories (and probably also because I was a gullible kid), I believed him completely.  So for years, every time I spotted a black squirrel (quite rare in Chicago), I kept my distance ::)  I can't see black squirrels of any variety now without thinking of that.  He's really cute, though, and apparently, no dripping fangs ;D
Title: Re: Picture thread
Post by: CutebutPsycho on July 28, 2009, 03:19:16 PM
Poptart, I agree with Courtney - SO cute with you and DS! And I agree with *you* that the little feller is the cutest furball!

If it weren't for the possibility for gnashing of teeth, I would have snorgled him! ;)

Rainha... these are *ground* squirrels so you're safe. Oh, and I'm pretty sure they've never been to Chicago.  ;D They actually seem quite docile and aren't so frantic like other gophers/ground squirrels around here. They won't approach you but they don't run for their burrows right away if you want to take pictures, either.

Some more cuteliness for anyone who needs it. This one *IS* totally and completely snorgly and will loooooove you foreeeeeeever if you cuddle with him. He freaked my friend out one time when she stayed with him - every morning she would wake up and he would be spooning with her... good for a few laughs anyway!

Thank you Courtney! :)

This dog is more fun than any other animal (human or otherwise) that I have ever met. He is SO entertaining! He is a lab cross of some kind. I usually (joking) say he's a Lab Chihuahua cross because of the kind of buggy eyes. Makes people laugh, anyway. The breeds I can see distinct traces of in him are: lab, border collie, jack russel terrior, and beagle.

He howls - oh my goodness it is hilarious! I will have to post a video for you to see. He also chases his tail like a pro! If you look at the video here you can see some of his entertaining antics. No howling though. :)

Oh yeah. I'm stylin. I'm a studly rock star!!!  ;D You should see him when my mom sings. he howls along and then when mom gets offended and stops, he barks at her.  ::) He doesn't howl when I sing/play my guitar; but my mom doesn't believe me. LOL!



Midnight Kitty YAAAAAAY! Look at the both of you. You are fantastic! Those pictures give me goosebumps. I remember when you and Misty first made friends. Aw. You're both looking very lovely!  :-*

Midnight Kitty, is Misty your horse? What a stunning animal.

LOL Courtney - that's adorable! We celebrate our anniversary too - it's on Valentine's Day. And lots of people celebrate his birthday because he was born on Christmas Day.

Thanks Poptart. He's got personality to spare, that's for sure. No wonder he's my best friend!

Thank you very much, CutebutPsycho ;D It's hard to believe we bought her almost 3 years ago!  She was 17 months old when we bought her in September 2006.

For those who didn't know me back then, this is the filly my husband found on the internet:

We fell in love at first sight, all 3 of us.

It's his first horse, my fourth, and the second horse I have "started."  I think she's the greatest horse EVER!  I can see eventing in her future, not with me on her, but with other formally trained riders.  She & I have many happy trails in our future.

Bellantara, I'm sorry to hear about your Papaw.  :'( That's a great picture!  :)

Here are a couple from my recent trip to the mountains. (click on pictures to get to the albums if you'd like to see more.)

We saw wolves! We got to watch them for a couple of hours; we were just laying on the mountainside watching the pups play and crash around. I was sure wishing for a better zoom! (You can see these way better if you click on the picture for a bigger image)

Title: Re: Picture thread
Post by: RainhaDoTexugo on August 29, 2009, 11:10:00 AM
She's not normally much of a cuddler, oddly.  She's a feisty little thing.  :)  We had her for a year before she decided to test out our laps, and the second you acknowledged her presence she was gone.  She's definitely gotten cuddlier, but it's gotta be on her terms.  The other three are much snugglier.
Title: Re: Picture thread
Post by: Midnight Kitty on August 31, 2009, 01:37:14 PM
<headbutt to StripeMonster>

My kitty, Bootsie, isn't a lap cat.  She, too, snuggles on her own terms or not at all.  Bootsie is the original Scaredy Cat, not feisty at all, except when her sister pushes her buttons.  She's also around 12-13 pounds, so I think she doesn't like laps because they're too small and she's afraid she'll fall off.  She lays by my feet like a dog most of the time.  When I lay down to sleep, she snuggles into the curve of my body and purrs me to sleep.

Here's Bootsie trying to get me to come back to bed and cuddle:

I'll echo Rainha, Happy Birthiversary Magdalena!

Did you marry on your birthday?  Our official wedding date is Sept. 17, 2000.  Then my birthday on the 20th.  Then we married in his mother's church on Sept. 22.  We like to celebrate for a week  :-*

Your wedding pics are charming.  You both look like you are a lot of fun to be around.  I tell my DH he's a fun guy, but he says, "Quit calling me a mushroom!" >:D
Title: Re: Picture thread
Post by: magdalena on September 03, 2009, 02:04:08 AM
Thankyou Rainha, MrsO, AdakAK and Midnight Kitty!

MrsO, the bouquet was really great - and I didn't even really plan it myself :) I just told the flower lady what I liked, showed her a picture of my dress and just talked about the style of our wedding and then she did her magic. We had a very colorful wedding with the attendants all in clothes of their own choosing and they all got flowers that perfectly matched their outfits while still somehow similar. She was just amazing.

Midnight Kitty, a whole week! Why did I not think of that!?
We hadn't really planned on getting married on my birthday, just some time between mid August and mid September. As it happened my birthday worked out best for everyone and DH was very happy that he now really CANNOT forget the date  ;D
You and your DH sound like a lot of fun too.
The mushroom line totally cracked me up. I'm gonna have to find a way to work that into a conversation soon - no matter that we mostly speak German  ::)

Sheep!

There's a story floating around about me, age 1.5, jerking my hand off mom's hand, running to a field with sheep, taking one by the cheeks and giving it a huge sloppy toddler kiss.

Here's a couple of recent ones from my travels :)

If anybody is interested in seeing my photoblog, it can be found here: http://phototreks.blogspot.com/

Grizzly Bear on the bank of the Taiya River in Dyea, Alaska.

And a cute little mushroom! Actually quite big, probably as big as my hand if I spread my fingers out:

Speaking of 'as big as my hand'... these are bald eagle tracks...

Are here's the eagle... this photo is kind of grainy because I was pretty far away...

Even though this looks like she has no eyes, and is slightly scary  :P , I LOVE this photo of LittleO2- the cheeky smile she's pulling just defines her personality so well.

Here's LittleO1 pulling a funny face (the scratch on her nose is from where she'd fallen over earlier that day, and landed flat on her face).

We hit St. Louis today, and checked out the arch :)

Step 1:  Cheesy touristy shot

(http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa298/dassenkoningin/Mobile%20Uploads/1256529520.jpg)

Step 2:  Shot of BF taking pictures - necessary, or else I'd probably never get any pictures of him at all ;)

(http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa298/dassenkoningin/Mobile%20Uploads/1256529974.jpg)

Step 3:  Requisite artsy shot:

(http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa298/dassenkoningin/Mobile%20Uploads/1256529474.jpg)

Step 4:  Examine tiny escape pods that they expect us to cram into to get to the top.  Reevaluate sanity.

(http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa298/dassenkoningin/Mobile%20Uploads/1256529205.jpg)

Step 5:  Wait for space pod on fancy stairwell:

(http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa298/dassenkoningin/Mobile%20Uploads/1256530026.jpg)

Step 6:  Cling to space pod seat for dear life.

Step 7:  Take pictures of stuff that you could have seen in much more detail if you'd stayed on the ground where you belong.

(http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa298/dassenkoningin/Mobile%20Uploads/1256530058.jpg)

(http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa298/dassenkoningin/Mobile%20Uploads/1256529343.jpg)

Step 8:  Prove it was really you.

(http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa298/dassenkoningin/Mobile%20Uploads/1256529291.jpg)

Step 9:  Wait for space pod in decidedly less fancy stairwell.

(http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa298/dassenkoningin/Mobile%20Uploads/1256529240.jpg)

Step 10:  Kiss ground.  Reevaluate sanity again ;D

Rainha, your commentary sounds very much like something that would be going through my head as well!  Great pics though!  

Here are our Halloween costumes, which DH and BIL made most of (They made the boys' heads, shirts, and the Perry thing.  A friend of DH's crocheted the beak, feet tail & eyes for Perry.)

Phineas & Ferb (with the Perry stuff that was intended to be a costume for Thing 3):

Hey, Rainha, you're better than me.
DH knows by now that he's allowed to go up, as long as I can stay down and look at the pretty houses and trees closer (yeah, I've got a thing for houses and trees... ).

There are times I go up somewhere but then I look like this:

Wow!  Those pumpkins turned out really great!

I have some pictures from last night, mostly of BF.  There aren't a lot of me, because I was sitting most of the night.  I don't think I have any full costume shots.  I'm still really excited about BF's costume, though!  I made it myself, and he was a finalist in the costume contest at the bar we went to.  Pretty good, if you ask me, because it seemed like a lot of the other contestants were regulars.  He won a Blue Moon tshirt ;D

A link to the somewhat blurry pictures of our beast of a Christmas tree! 

(Back story.  We loved a tree we saw at Sam's, but the original price was too much, so we waited to see if it would go on  clearance.  It did, and we bought it.  It didn't look that big inside Sam's, but...

It's 12 feet tall and 6 and a half feet wide at the base!

The first picture is the best.  I really need to get a new camera!

I'm jealous that you have a place in your home to put a 12 foot tall, 6-1/2 foot wide tree!  If we could get it through our front door (which is doubtful), we would have to move the furniture onto the lanai to put the tree in our tiny condo.  It is such a beautiful tree. 

I put the holiday lights on our lanai last Saturday.  DH is a "Blues Guy."  He is a DJ with 2 blues shows on radio and he promotes blues music in the Hawaiian Islands.  So, of course, our holiday lights are blue.  There's a blues song entitled "The House of Blue Lights."  Unfortunately, I can't get a good picture of them.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for a Little Magda in 2010! Because we planned for the worst (BF cried pretty much 24/7 when he was a baby and I was quite a handful myself), transitioning after Baby Nischis birth has been really easy on us. We actually get more sleep than before she was born, as BF was finishing his diploma thesis and I was in a cleaning frenzy and my bladder woke me up every 2 hours.

I love blue Christmas lights.  Anything blue actually, it's my favorite color!  I bet it looks beautiful!

(I do like our house and the high ceilings, except when the electric bill comes!  It's outrageously expensive to heat and cool!  I'm glad you liked the tree, I do too!)

It has taken me three years, but this weekend I saw my dream come true.  I bought Misty October 2006 as a 17 month old completely green filly.  No one had touched her, not even to pick up her feet.  I started her using Parelli Natural Horsemanship principles, but I had to get help from a couple non-Parelli trainers to deal with her bucking issues.  My goal was to train her to be safe and responsive so that someone else can ride her during the week while I'm working.  I retire in 10 years, and then I'll be riding her more frequently.  She'll be 14 then and in her prime.  Unfortunately, I had a bad fall 2 months ago while mounting and sustained a severe hematoma on my leg which has prevented me from riding Misty.  Fortunately, my horse neighbors (sorry, bad pun >:D) were looking for a spare horse.  Both mother and daughter ride and they own one horse.  They took Misty out for a test ride last Saturday and both mom and daughter were thrilled with Misty's responsiveness and willingness to please.

Mom (Janee) on Misty (left)                          Daughter (Paris) on Misty (right)

Misty is a high energy horse with about 1/8 Arabian, although there are times which she seems 100% hot-blooded Arab.  I feel such a weight lifted off my shoulders now that I have two more riders, both of whom are more experienced and skilled than me, to keep Misty exercised.  I live & work an hour drive away from the ranch where Misty lives, so it has been a heavy load on me to work, care for my disabled husband, and keep up with my frisky filly.

My nose is cold just looking at Bo in the snow.  He looks like he's having fun though :D I saw the picture of you both over in the other pictures thread.  Why do light colored horses love to roll in the mud?  Misty is such a princess.  She's the first horse I've known who does not like to roll after her bath.  She has lovely turf which would, I'm sure, feel great on the itchy places, but I'm not complaining that she prefers to stay clean.

There was a loud noise when I was in the air mounting from the ground and I ended up vaulting over Misty, doing a face plant into the dirt.  It wasn't until a hour or so later that I realized that a rock must have hit my lower thigh, right above my knee.  It swelled up to the size of a grapefruit.  I had badly cut lips & it looked like a left handed person hit me in the mouth with a solid jab.  No loss of knee function or mobility - at first.

I didn't go the the emergency room (no blood, no broken bones, no need :-[), just rested for 2 days with my knee elevated & iced.  Went back to work for 3 days before the hemorraghing turned my leg purple, black, & blue from the thigh to the ankle.  Then I went to the doctor.  By then my face was almost healed!  I missed the next 2 weeks of work because I had to be on strict bed rest with my knee elevated above my heart.  That was 2 months ago.  The hematoma is down to less than 1 inch in diameter from over 3 inches.

I'm just lucky I didn't hit that rock with my face instead of my thigh.  :-\

The good news was that the X-rays showed no problem with my knee AND no osteoporosis!

This is Jasmin, one of my mini ponies I own.  She's 14 years old, dependable and safe.  She knows how to drive so I hitch her up occasionally to the pony cart.  This is the view I get right before I kissyface her muzzle.   She's an alpha mare and bosses around my much younger mini named Phoebe.

The horsey pictures are all gorgeous!!

Here is a couple of pretty snow pictures from where I live (we had a light sprinkling of snow for a couple of days, followed by hail, sleet and, bizarrely, thunder and lightning).

Misty is a submissive follower.  Since she weighs a thousand pounds (she has a "tendency towards roundness"), I'm glad she's not as pushy as our alpha cat, Midnight.

I have the same problem, it's heartbreaking, as I absolutely adore Horses.  They have always given me a calm and peaceful feeling.

It might sound funny, but I love they way they smell! I can get close enough to enjoy that, but I can't pet or touch them anymore.

In the Hugs folder, I mentioned that my son Z was in a production of 1776.  I've got a few photos of the lad.

He played Andrew McNair, the congressional custodian.

Marine Vet Wife, if allergy medicine works for you, I'd recommend taking some before you go.  (I didn't think of it).  My allergies used to be manageable, but in the last year they seem to have suddenly gotten much worse.

ArtK, your son is a good looking kid.

The only thing I can think of is that they might be upset because I tied all the cabinet doors together last night so Prometheus couldn't open them and then use them to get up on the counters.  It was kind of funny, though -- a little to the left, and whichever of them did it would have peed right on DH, who was still in bed at that point!  He was not pleased.

Love the kiddie and the kitty pics!   Bibliophile, are those cats Maine Coons?  They look quite a bit like a Maine Coon a friend of ours had once.  We had one too, but she wasn't as fluffy as dear Jumbo was.

I'll share some pics!

Thanks!!  Actually they're not twins (though we hear that often! lol!)  They're almost exactly 18 mos apart.   1st boy was born 4/27/01, second 10/26/02.  If he'd been born one day later they'd be exactly 18 mos. 

BTW Your sn reminds me of one of my best friends (one I was visiting in IA) as she likes crows and jokingly calls herself "An old crow".  lol.

Since I did it for my younger son, I'm posting my older son in his play.  It was a very strange version of Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass (the writer/director could give Tim Burton a run for his money.)  It had a very 'experimental theater' feel to it.  G was the White Knight.

He opened the show by reciting Jabberwocky.

"'Twas brillig..."

I might Rainha! :) I need to tweak the recipe a bit. The apples were a bit too crunchy for my taste, even after an hour of baking... but it was still yummy! Wally asked me if I was going to eat pie for breakfast... I didn't, but I may have some for dessert! LOL
Title: Re: Picture thread
Post by: Layla Miller on March 28, 2010, 12:47:18 PM
I feel that pie is an acceptable breakfast, along the same lines of Bill Cosby and cake.  Pie has fruit, grains, and sometimes you brush the top of the crust with milk before baking.  What's the problem?  ;D
Title: Re: Picture thread
Post by: Animala on March 28, 2010, 01:07:29 PM
I've found the best sucess with apple pie if I can it first.  I guess it cooks longer in the end.
Title: Re: Picture thread
Post by: Samantha on March 28, 2010, 01:14:00 PM
I brushed the top with an egg mixed with a bit of water. :) I made the pleasant discovery that the recipe is safe for my Dad to eat (dairy allergy). Even the store bought pie crust is safe for him! That'll make him happy. :D

The recipe I used called for braeburn apples, though I couldn't find them. I used granny smith instead.

What do you mean, can it first?
Title: Re: Picture thread
Post by: Animala on March 28, 2010, 10:46:49 PM
Can as in preserve, like canning tomatoes or green beans.  My XMIL taught me how to do it.  If I use straight it always turns out too crunchy for me.

We went out to a nature preserve/dog park in the suburbs today, and I got this photo.  You can't see the dog, and you can barely see BF, but there's still something about it that I really like.

My husband is the "idea man" and I'm the engineer who makes his ideas into reality.  After his father died, he took the last portrait of him and had it framed.  The aloha shirt that my FIL was wearing in the portrait was still hanging in his closet.  DH had the portrait matted with the aloha shirt.  The framer did an awesome job.  Then DH wanted to create this bedroom wall with his father's portrait in the center.  His father was a post man, which explains the statue on the middle left.  DH is a SF 49er and Oakland A's fan, which explains the stuffed animals on the middle right.  The rest of the pictures are of family, including our fur-babies.

My husband had his first horseback riding lesson last Friday.
(http://inlinethumb30.webshots.com/45853/2988776490039000897S425x425Q85.jpg)

He had a great time.  He's learning how to communicate with the horse instead of just sitting on it.  The horse is a 20-something mare named Charlie.  Charlie is a retired polo pony and has arthritis, so she just walks; No trotting or cantering and definitely no jumping!  Since my husband is disabled by SI joint disfunction, we wanted to be very careful to find a "safe" horse.  The motion of the horse walking helps exercise his lower back and strengthens his core.

Misty is still doing great.  She turns 5 years old this month.  We bought her when she was just 17 months old.

A few years ago, BF and I took in a teeny flea infested stray kitten and cleaned her up, socialized her some, de-flead her, and got her up to a good healthy weight.  We found her a home with a friend of mine (because a fifth cat, tempting as it is, was going a little too far).  I've gotten plenty of updates and a few photos from my friend, but we never managed to make it over to her place to see her.  BF and I were over there tonight, and I can tell that we definitely found the right home for her.  She's a little psycho, super snuggly, and still purrs like a little monster :)  She's very happy with her kitty sister, who's also a bit love bug.  Here's Daisy (formerly known as Ginger):

Most of my online pictures are from Renfest.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/Xenalyte/TRF%202001/CRW_0056L.jpg)

2001 - my first year at TRF. The character's name is Xen Shadowhawk.




(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/Xenalyte/TRF%202002/CRW_4345L.jpg)

2002 - Ralla Lindariel, the pissed-off elf (you can BARELY see her ear tips)




(http://www.wingedmammal.com/action_photos_2003/CRW_11559L.jpg)

2003 - Dances on Tables, the not-so-noble Native American




(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/Xenalyte/TRF%202006/trf81.jpg)

2006 - Margarita, la Infanta de Espana, with her sister-in-law, the former Juana  ;D




(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/Xenalyte/TRF%202007/LoungingAndFlirty.jpg)

2007 - Juana 1.0. As you can see, she is going peasant, with her gorgeous long sleeves removed to my costumer's shock. (It's possible I was lurking for some reason ... )




(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/Xenalyte/TRF%202008/trfopening2008165.jpg)

2008 - Juana 2.0. THAT's what sleeves are supposed to do! And that thing on her front panel is a very ornate gothic-type cross. (Juana is very devout.)




(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/Xenalyte/TRF%202009/w3-TRF_Priates_09_262.jpg)

2009 - Juana 2.1. One of my favorite pictures from last season.




(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/Xenalyte/TRF%202009/w2-IMG_0562-1.jpg)

And this one, just so y'all can see what an awesome embroiderer Ange is. On my front there, that's a J with a cross behind it. Told you she's devout!

Title: Re: Picture thread
Post by: Giggity on May 12, 2010, 06:15:11 PM
Awww, gee, thanks!  ;D

The Xen outfit I found on eBay. The elf get-up - the caftan was from eBay, pants were made for me, shirts were a pair of lace stretchy tops I used to wear to clubs. Dances on Tables is wearing the only costume I do not own - it belongs to Faire.

All my royal outfits are made by my buddy Ange. She is uber-talented, and now that she knows my body oddities (one of my legs is about an inch shorter than the other, and as a result my hips aren't level), she can work around them to flatter me. She's already conceptualizing what needs to happen to Juana this season ... I think we'll focus our efforts on beading the snot out of that overdress of hers.

Sure is! Biggest one in the country. If you'll ever be in the area in October or November, hit me up for comp tickets. I always have a ton.

If the pictures were better, you could see that Margarita and Juana 1.0 are essentially the same dress. Juana 2.0 was where Ange really hit her stride. The main difference is that Marg and J1 are three pieces - underskirt, overskirt, and bodice with (removable) sleeves - and J2 is just two pieces, underskirt and overdress (with non-removable sleeves curse you Ange!  ;D )

My first year as Juana, I put one of my duchesses into Margarita, and she looks better in it than I did.  :)

She is indeed! She's a true Renaissance woman - science teacher, actor, horsewoman, EMT, farmer, seamstress, designer ... she's good at ALL OF IT.

She acts with and writes for a group that does dinner murder mysteries, and she wants to get me in some of them, so on her list of Stuff Juana Needs are:

- Titanic dress (no, not THAT one  ;D, just a period-looking one)
- saloon girl get-up
- Annie Oakley / Calamity Jane ensemble

We have material for the saloon girl, but we need findings - lots of lace and ribbon and buttons and stuff. The outfit itself is pretty basic - it just gets embellished like mad.

And you know what the kicker is? They are all TOTALLY comfortable. The Dances on Tables get-up is microsuede, so it's like wearing big loose fringy pajamas (and is machine-washable).

My court dresses, seriously, I have no problem being in them all day. Many performers who wear the faire-owned costumes have issues with heat and fit. Not me! Ange has streamlined them so I don't have to wear a corset underneath (HUGE bonus), and we found a formal portrait of Juana that shows her in a slim-line gown, so it was off with the Margarita's giant hoop skirt and on with the crinoline!

My college roommate was a photography major.  She recommended the Nikon D40 to me as a good beginning hobbyist's camera - good price, well made, easy to use, good reviews, etc.  I've also looked at the D3000, but it's a bit out of my price range.

Our crepes are late season bloomers.  So right now they're pretty drab, but at least we'll have color when the extreme gulf heat has killed off everything else.

Ha!  That's what he has, a D40.  So you can definitely email him about it!  In fact, when you're ready, if you're interested in buying used, talk to us first, because he's been wanting to upgrade for awhile.

I thought I would share a picture of my husband's homecoming ceremony. He just made it home the 30th of June....just in time for the 4th of July and our 16th anniversary :) The reason there are only 8 of them is because he was on ADVON (the first to come home to get everything prepared for the rest to come back). This was his third deployment to Iraq. The first was a year, the second was 15 months and this last one was just short of a year.

DH submitted a photo to a contest to win a walk on role on the TV show Mad Men.  Here is a link to DH in a suit channeling Don Draper.  DH is very detail oriented so putting together the outfit was quite an ordeal.  We would appreciate your votes.

Some pictures of my friend's visit

When we picked her up at the airport.  We got some funny looks and smiles, one woman saying "I think I lost my months!" There's a long story and inside joke behind DH's tail, but he wore it the whole day, from when we left to pick her up until we got back from the grocery store that night.  :)

LOL!!  Yeah, especially since the old switchplates had eagles on them, the house number was once on an eagle-shaped plaque, and there are little eagles on the box valances in the living room.  

Someone really got into the 70's theme colors! LOL!  It made for a good conversation piece, but I think it looks a lot better now! :)

And here's a pic of us doing one of the old time photos. :)   She said next time we should pose like Mrs. Paroo and Marian Paroo from Music Man.

I figured out how to connect the scanner/printer/fax to my new computer!  (If I waited on Mr. Sirius' help...)  Anyway, this was taken at our wedding reception May 2, 1998.  My older sister made us a gorgeous quilt to match that pillow.  If you look closely, you'll notice that I'm wearing my wedding band on my pinky.  That's because the salesperson at the jewelry store sold Mr. Sirius the wrong size ring.  When we took the ring in to be resized I watched her reach in and grab a ring from the wrong row to compare it with, and when I pointed this out she showed me that on her side the size was correct.  Once we got all that sorted out we got the ring sized so I could wear it on the correct finger.

Has it headed your way? We had several more inches yesterday and last night. In fact there was enough to make a huge snow fort, completely covered in thick snow.

I did this after clearing 3 elderly neighbour's paths and then realised I am not in my 30's anymore.

My wife was not very sympathetic, something about acting like a kid and not listening but I wasn't paying attention as I was engaged in a snowball fight.

It's so strange to see SP with hair! I'm used to him shaving his head, and having facial hair...

Looks like he has slimmed down since the last photos you posted. :)

LOL!  Yes, Claudio's my lovabale lump.  There's a reason he and Hero are referred to as "The Chubsters." 

And SP's lost 6 inches in his waist since the end of summer!  He joined WW after I'd already gotten a good start.  It's not fair that he gets to eat more than me, but I'm really proud of him.  He's got a neck!!!  His blood chemistry's improving, his knees and back aren't bothering him as much.  He's also taking meds to help his snoring, but the weight loss has helped too.  He's not as tired and grumpy all the time anymore since his quality of sleep has improved.  Now he just sounds like a lawnmower rather than a freight train.  ;D

He's very excited that he needs new pants and a new belt.

Congratulations to Sweet Pattootie!  He's making a big lifestyle improvement and it sounds like it is for all the right reasons, so (hopefully) he will be able to sustain it.  We found that we had more energy after we bought "The Cloud," our good quality mattress with the memory foam topper.  Better sleep leads to a better life!

My cat, Bootsie, weighs in at 13-14 pounds.  She's a Chubster, too.  I know it's not good for her health to be so overweight.  She has arthritis and it's hard for her to get around.  The weight is hard on her heart, too.  But DH says, "let her be."  She and Midnight will turn 17 on 1/15/2011.  DH says Bootsie will never lose enough weight to make a difference, so let her enjoy the one thing she can - her dinner.  As long as she doesn't gain any more weight, I'll go along with it.  She gives me those big "puppy dog" eyes; The ones that say, "I'm STARVING!  I can't remember the last time I ate."
Title: Re: Picture thread
Post by: HeebyJeebyLeebee on December 08, 2010, 05:21:49 PM
We bought a new mattress last March - at the Rodeo of all places!!!  It's a dual zone king, each with a different firmness level (that was measured for each of us).  Oddly, we both take the same level of firmness.  We've also raised the head of the bed a little since his doctor thinks GERD is contributing to his snoring (and meds for that too).  New pillows too.  SP's been a snorer all his life, and it's primarily structural.  He's still doing sleep studies to determine if there's a better course of action (c-pap, surgery, different meds, etc).

But the new mattress made a world of difference for me!!!   ;D  Much better sleep.  (and the old mattress was just WRONG - he bought it when he married his ex-wife.  Definitely time for a new one!)

Claudio's 15 lbs, and while we'd like him to be a healthier weight, it's not going to happen.  Even out vet has said it's extremely challenging trying to get cats lose weight and that other than the weight, both cats are very healthy.  It's hard to engage him in play/exercise - he'd rather cuddle.  And he's not gaining any.  He loves Jack, the older of the 2 dogs, but he's not so sure about Bonny.  He's warming up to her and starting to stand his ground (Bonny's so curious and bouncy - understandable that the cats of terrified of her).  I think once he's settled with Bonny that he out-ranks her, he'll spend less time sleeping on the guest bed and more time moving around.

I made a gingerbread house based on a summer cottage my family used to own. It's the most ambitious one I've made and the best, though it's not as good as I hoped it would be. It took six days to make and lots of angst (Christmas isn't good for my mental health) but in the end I'm quite happy with it even though the only thing it has to do with Christmas is the gingerbread :)

Haha, just found this on my computer as I was shuffling through some pictures. A photograph of a card including a photograph taken somewhere in the very early 1990's. I received the card upon my high school graduation from the boy in blue overalls. I saw the very same boy yesterday (sadly, he had to tell my my summer boots are beyond repair). It will soon be 20 years since the picture in the picture was taken and we're still friends. And I still play the guitar. He, however, no more wears blue overalls.

Alboury, that is ADORABLE!!! I actually tilted my head to the side and said "awww."

Here are a couple of photos I took last week. It was the middle of the night and VERY cold out so I only got a couple shots. There is a limit to the amount of suffering I am willing to endure for my art. ;)

We're getting ready to move next week, and apparently Ms. Carrot Cake is worried that we'll leave her behind.

I refuse to divulge just how many of those boxes there are filled with books.  I do wonder what the new neighbors will think when they see that 80% of our belongings are being carried in in wine boxes ;D
Title: Re: Picture thread
Post by: Alboury on March 06, 2011, 09:27:27 AM
RainhaDoTexugo: that looks very, very familiar. Each an every one in my family has the same thing: loads and loads and loads of books. Whereas most families, in detached houses, have a workroom, ours was practically a library with a desk and a computer there. A cousin of mine nearly dropped his jaw when he was helping my brother move and asked if there was much stuff left "in that room there". My brother answered that there were only his books there. Cousin opened the door and saw a shoulder-high wall of - yes - wine boxes! It's the best kind of box ever for moving books: planned to carry the considerable weight of 12 wine bottles, is easy to fill without leaving loose space, and is small enough not to get devilishly heavy when it's full of books. Upon my brother moving, we made an experiment and found out that it takes 49 wine boxes to fill up the trunk of a farmer Mercedes when the back seats are turned down.

Post by: RainhaDoTexugo on March 06, 2011, 01:54:40 PM
The wine boxes really are perfect, aren't they?  My brother is a chef, and worked at a wine bar when they bought their house, so we got all the boxes he saved :)  That's really only about half the books, though - the ones from the living room, and a box or two from the small bookcase in the bedroom.  We still have the bigger dining room bookcases to pack, and a few large boxes of books that are in storage for lack of bookshelves.  I knew I had a decent library, but I had no idea just how many books there were til I started packing.  Luckily, I got myself a Kindle last fall - otherwise, I don't know how I could fit them all into the new house.

(http://artk.typepad.com/photos/photos/zfence01.jpg)

and... in action...

(http://artk.typepad.com/photos/photos/zfence02.jpg)

And G, who is the sailor.  He's on the yardarm of the brigantine Exy Johnson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irving_Johnson_%28ship%29) here, about 40' off of the deck (or 60' above the water.)

(http://artk.typepad.com/photos/photos/IMG_0014a.jpg)

After I showed him that picture, he pointed out that his safety harness clip is dangling down behind him.  He had forgotten to clip in and had actually slipped while working there.  He didn't notice that he wasn't attached until he went to climb down.  I asked him not to tell me things like that in the future -- and to clip in!

This is of me in high school.  I just found it again and love it.  The dress is a family heirloom; it belonged to my great-great-grandmother and was her wedding dress.  It is tradition for girls in my family to get their picture made in it when they are old enough that it fits.

What a lovely tradition!  You and the dress are just beautiful.  Approximately how old is the dress?  Did she make it herself?

 
Title: Re: Picture thread
Post by: JoanOfArc on May 03, 2011, 01:49:40 PM
Thank you!  The dress is around 120 years old.  I'm unsure of if she made it, but it was handmade (you can tell by the stitching).  My Mom recently got it professionally cleaned and restored, but, honestly, I think it belongs in a museum, as it is very delicate.  You have to be careful about getting in and out of it.  We've talked about donating it, even looked at a few Czech heritage museums (great-great-grandmother was a Czech immigrant to Texas), but haven't made a decision.  My cousin, the last great-great-granddaughter in this generation, had her picture taken in it last year.  It is no real rush- we have it in a preservation bag recommended by the cleaners, but I would like to see it in a place where more people could see it and appreciate it.

That dress and the story behind it are beautiful!!

When I worked in a portrait studio we had a family come in for Christening photos of their baby. The Christening gown had been made from a great-grandmother's wedding gown and every baby in the family had worn it. The names and dates of all the Christenings were written on one of the layers of fabric.

More sunrise pictures.  I plan on framing some of these and displaying them around the house.

This was up the street from my parents house last night.  We live about ten minutes away and had a ton of funnel pictures taken near us, too, but they are not near as clear as this one. 
The storm was so bad it completely tore up our wooden jungle gym in the back yard.  Our glider swing got thrown into the air and was pierced through the gym set.  I have a picture of it I will put up once it gets loaded.

My town has an old castle that dates back to the beginning of 14th century, though I don't think that there's anything that's that old left and most of the castle was in a pretty bad shape before it was restored in 1960s or so. I haven't been there in a few years but visited it today with some friends I hadn't seen in a few years and it was fun showing them around the castle and my town. And seeing them, even though it was too long since I last saw them it was like no time had passed. They live a lot closer to me now so hopefully I'll see more of them (and was invited to visit them, they live in a pretty nice town as well so I think that I'll go). Here are some pictures of the castle and more are here (https://picasaweb.google.com/117513415549192345422/TurunLinna#).

Now that we got into old Finnish castles, the town nearby which I grew up has one, too. A bit younger than the one in Ereine's pictures, though. But, in addition, there are five waaaay older fort hills scattered about. Once, in 2007 or so, I landed a week's autumn break without getting work anywhere, so I visited one of those each working day with a camera. I am currently using the old family computer in my mother's apartment and I just scanned through what I exactly have stored on this pieceawhatnot, and so found the pictures I took from the fort hills back then. One of them especially pleased me (although it wasn't very good a camera and it wasn't a day particularly fine for photographs), as it very effectively demonstrates what most of Finland looks like in mid-autumn. The only thing missing is a lake somewhere.

Heh, thanks! Welcome for a visit anytime! There's even more to this country than just pretty landscapes. And that's not even of the prettiest type - to me, it's nearly depressive, being so ordinary - the photo being taken from the highest hilltop around adds a lot. Like I said, that's what most of this country looks like: fields, woods, hills. Again and again. And the odd lake here and there. Except in Ostrobothnia, where there are no hills. (here, an irritated Ostrobothnian would say that there  is a pair in Lapua, actually - and someone would reply with "yeah, I met that girl once!". Always know your landscape jokes!)

Now that's something you don't see every day, Anna_Garny!

The only time I ever saw an echidna in person was when I was young, and we had to call WIRES to come get the injured echidna we found in the rundown orchard.

I've actually had the chance to pet an echidna -- you can do it without getting hurt!  The quills (spines?) feel kinda like PVC.

I imagine it's hard to cuddle them, though.

I'm posting my farewell to the real Midnight with a picture taken with DH just hours before she passed on December 2, 2011.  She would have been 18 in January 2012, so she had a good run as the boss of our home.  I started my new job on 12/1.  I came home excited to find a dying cat.  I thought she would not make it through the night.  She slept on my pillow, as she has for over 17 years.  At 5-1/2 pounds, there wasn't much left but love and a purr.  She wasn't in pain, but she was ready.
(http://inlinethumb53.webshots.com/47732/2723512830039000897S200x200Q85.jpg) (http://pets.webshots.com/photo/2723512830039000897dhNZpq)

For pictures of her in happier days, see this post:
http://www.etiquettehell.com/smf/index.php?topic=67564.msg2600472#msg2600472 (http://www.etiquettehell.com/smf/index.php?topic=67564.msg2600472#msg2600472)

It has been 3 weeks and we still miss her every day.  Her sister, Bootsie, is not eating much, not enough.  We think she is grieving for her sister.  At least she's starting out at a hefty 13-1/2 pounds, so she won't starve soon.  Still, she needs to lose weight slowly, not crash, or we might lose her, too.

These days the oldest one looks like a pretty good mix of DH and I but when he was a baby everyone said he was the spitting image of DH. They haven't stopped saying that about the middle pirate.

They haven't stopped saying that about the middle pirate.
Probably because middle pirate is the spitting image of his daddy as a boy.  The acorn didn't fall far from the oak tree.  Back before it was considered politically incorrect, we used to say, "Dad didn't need a paternity test for that one."

LOL! Yep.  The only thing that child inherited from me is my eye color, freckles, and ADD.   

And with taking the wee one out into the sunshine the last couple days, his hair is starting to really turn ginger, which he might have gotten a bit of from both sides, as MIL's oldest two half sisters were redheads and let's just say that when I saw Ron Weasley in Prisoner of Azkaban I thought "Holy carp, it's Uncle Bud!"

Because this picture just makes me laugh when I look at it.  He needs a new hat for the beach and tried on two.

He hates hats though so getting one to stay on might get tricky but he was just so stinkin' cute in the fedora I'm going to have to get it.

Awww, Jmarvellous, you truly do look marvellous! :)

Wanted to share a couple pictures from our beach trip.  :)  This one is actually from the baptism, with the family. 

From left to right, there's FIL, MIL, DH with Piratebabe on his lap, Pirateboys 1&2, my brother and his girlfriend and up front is myself and my best friend, also Piratebabe's godmother.

One of two pictures I just loved from this day.  After a long trip to Assateague and setting up camp, we headed over to the beach and my friend wanted to be the one to show the little man the beach for the first time since she's his godmother.

For a long time, I had hair past my bottom. A couple of months ago, I cut it and really liked it. Today, I cut it again. Only this time, I got bangs. I have never had them before, so I am pretty excited. I've been told for a long time that I have a huge forehead, so at least it's covered now.

This was me a couple of months ago with my big forehead.

Nah, not that cold, my children just have a strange tolerance for heat and cold.  One will wear long sleeves when it's 75 degrees while the other's wearing a parka but when it's 50 degrees out they're insisting they're "fine" in short sleeves and shorts.  ::)

Gidget is Max's puppy who used to be grey and fit in my hand during photos a year ago. She kept trying to photo bomb my Christmas pictures until we finally let her be officially "in". At which point, DS "Boo Bear" wouldn't hold still for photos, so we gave up on Christmas card pics.

Gidget is adorable!

I was the head photorapher for Christmas cards this year, as I have a camera that will take successive shots. Over 800 shots of a toddler and we only kept about 11% as decent. Trust me, I feel your pain. Your wiggly, antsy, anti-stillness pain.

We took BabyDrifter to visit my grandparents on their farm, and she spotted the lemon tree the second she was out of the car - before we could stop her she had one.
Didn't even wait for us to cut it up!

She eventually was persuaded to give it up to be sliced and ate 3/4 of the inside parts (much to the astonishment of her great-grandparents).

For those of you who are going to ask, Mrs.k2002's hat came from The Village Hat Shop (http://www.villagehatshop.com) in San Deigo. Excellent service -- they shipped very quickly.

For those of you on the East Coast, the Dapper Day event is at Disney Hollywood Studios on 9/27 (http://dapperday.com/sept-27-2014-wdw). The Expo will be at the Boardwalk Inn. There are discount tickets available.

The lamb hat I knitted for littlest pirate boy.  :) I like the yarn for it's ability to hide some sins with my knitting, but it did make sewing on the ears a bit interesting. And they're a bit uneven but it can just look like the lamb's got one ear perked up to what's going on.

They have events at Disneyland, Walt Disney World and at DL Paris. If you mean all the parks within WDW, I'm sure that you can dress up and go to Animal Kingdom in your dapper outfit. It's not a truly formalized event. People just show up and go wherever they like. For instance, out here, you'll find dapper people at both Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure, not to mention Downtown Disney. The only official things are the Expo (lots of vendors) and often a dance.

Let me know if you see dapper people at Animal Kingdom.

Since eHell doesn't host the pictures, it's likely that the user's host is either no longer working or the links have expired. I got the link for one of ladyknight1's pictures and put it into my browser. I got this message back: "URL signature expired". It's possible that those are not permanent links for the image hosting and so they stop being valid after some time.

Edit: I further looked into ladynight1's link and it's to the FaceBook content servers. FB has probably done something to those links. I wouldn't rely on them for hosting pictures that are accessible outside of FB -- that doesn't fit FB's business model and having outside sites like eHell access the pictures eats up FB's bandwidth.

I have a public photography page on facebook, plus a few other hosting sites. I have removed the posts that had issues linking to the photos.

Thanks for asking. I have had heel spurs for several years and the left one acted up last fall. PT didn't help so I had surgery in September. I'm hoping to be out of the boot in a week or so. It made Disneyland a challenge, although the cast members were very helpful. We spent a lot of time resting in our hotel room!

It is. I just changed my photo hosting site, to a paid site. I wanted to make sure it worked.

Before, I could see the pictures, but no one else could.

This is from yesterday, after I got home. A Spicebush Swallowtail Butterfly on Lantana.

My new kitty, totally relaxed sleeping upside down on her daddy's high vis jacket.  ;D
I think she's settling in well.

Irishkitty, she looks so soft and strokeable; I would never get anything done other than petting/photographing kitty! ;D

Haven't posted anything from our Dapper Days for a while. This was the Fall event in November. Picture taken at Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen.
