Because I Could 1001

Amazing Art by God

Madsnapper Desk Lamp



A teacher was taking a station wagon full of nursery children to school when a firetruck zoomed past them. In the front seat of the fire truck was a dalmatian.

The children then started to discuss what the dalmation was for.

One girl said, “The firemen use the dalmatian to control the crowd of people at the fire scene.”

“The dalmatian’s there for good luck,” another girl chimed in.

“You’re both wrong!” said a little boy. “The firemen need the dalmatian to find the fire hydrant.”

Going around under an umbrella interferes with one's looking up at the sky.

I love the butterfly! I have been to several butterfly festivals, and none of my pictures are near this clear or good! The desk lamp reminds me of the two animated desk lamps in the Pixar Short Films.

What a beautiful picture of the butterfly, love it! It's very clear and sharp. The other pictures are cool too, like the desk lamp, it has some cool reflections of the light in it. Early morning here again [hehe] a new day ahead. Have a lovely day!

Beautiful photo's...my favorite is the desk lamp.What kind of camera do you have? I hope to update my camera someday. In answer to your question on my blog on what I use to edit my photo's...I use a free site called PicMonkey. It is very easy and good for a beginner like myself. You can scroll back and find some of my photo's and art work I edited. There is also a site called BeFunky that I use once in awhile. I tried to e-mail you the info but was unable to get through. I hope you are enjoying and staying cool on this first day of summer. Dee

I love them all. Everything is photo worthy if you just think about it. BTW, I was wrong about the Al Servo. I keep my camera on Al Focus.

While that is a very cool desk lamp I'm blown away by the butterfly. That's gorgeous.
