Where there is a will, there is a way!

It is cold here in Florida, 30's and 40's and this caused our Hisbicus to be scraggly

Above is standard for past 2 weeks, but a couple of days back, right up on top of the scraggly part, I found a tiny mutant hisbicus. It was perfect in every way except for the fact it was 2 inches accross instead of 4.

Since I could not get a decent photo in the bright sun, I brought it in and laid it on the counter. NO! Snapper No!

Stick in in a vase, I says to me. NO!

Lay it by the glass bears, NO!

No again

YIKES what was I thinking

NOPE don't like it. One more time

Ok, don't like it but can work with it, have to remove the wrinkled old hands. I used this one in photoshop and created the header.

Six Words from Solomon

Fear God and keep His commandments.
Ecclesiastes 12:13

But you, oh Sovereign Lord, deal well with me for your names sake out of the goodness of your heart, deliver me. For I am poor and needy and my heart is wounded within me.
I fade away like and evening shadow. Psalm 109: 21-23

One beautiful Sunday morning, Reverend Barnard announces to his congregation, 'My good people, I have here in my hands three sermons......
A $100 sermon that lasts five minutes

A $50 sermon that lasts fifteen minutes

And a $20 sermon that lasts a full hour.

Now, we'll take the collection and see which one I'll deliver.'

Phun Phriday (exciting things)

I am beyond excited. I have a new “toy”.

Our printed list of channels for HD channels on TV disappeared; I think it might have been “consumed” by a canine.

While on-line printing a new list, I spied this  in red: NEW Caller ID on your computer (we have it on phone and TV screen). Download here.

Downloaded and ready to Ring.....I chose flight of the bumblebee.

.... drum roll please...see me doing my "happy dance"

Laptop AND desk top.... has a handy gadget.....Ring Ring
Voila.. up comes handy gadget (loudly playing flight of bumble bee,

And at a glance I KNOW who is disturbing my online time calling.

(Yesterday caller ID said Washington DC, do you think it was HIM?) I did not get up for that call.

PS… the handy gadget allows me to forward my home phone anywhere I want to…. AND if I forget to record a TV program, I can log in from anywhere in the world and program the show.
 (OMG what a relief that is.)

But Wait, there is more!

Late afternoon, same day, I noticed the caller ID light was blinking in the kitchen and said “we missed a call”. I look at number, it says FL cell phone and a number. I say to Hubby “whoever it was, they did not leave a message, can’t be to important” Hubby says “read the number, I do and he says don’t recognize it. This goes on for a few minutes. I say “what were you doing at 11:38?” He says “in garage repairing plane” I say “where was I? Oh yes, downloading the caller ID on the computer.”

OMG! It’s MY CELL PHONE. I used it to test the computer gadget!!!   DUH!!!

Hubby “you don’t know your own number?”

Well, I guess NOT!

Snapper Shots III (Selby Gardens)

Typical Shots

Snapper Shots... she is painting the trees (well, she is painting a painting of the trees) in the first two photos. I asked about the umbrellas, since it was shading the painting and not her,  she said it filters the light. OOPS! Duh! moment...

Why do the signs that say "Slow Children" have a picture of a running child?
Snapper Shot Just Because.

Did Noah keep his bees in ArcHives?

Snapper Shots II (Selby Gardens)

I'm going to start thinking positive, but I know it won't work.

Typical Shots

 Snapper Shots
If a "fatal" error is made with the E-mail I sent, does that mean I killed somebody?

I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar territory.

See you tomorrow.........

Take Four Minutes

IF you liked dancing or watching it, take four minutes and watch DANCING AT THE MOVIES
this took a LOT of work for someone to create.

Snapper Shots I (Selby Gardens)

Let the fun begin, I went to Selby Gardens last week. Not a circus in sight!  (it's ok, you can sigh with relief) My next few post will show Typical shots and Snapper Shots...

Typical Shot
Snack Bar and Rest rooms above, we had lunch outside by the infinity pool. The garden includes thousands of flowers and orchids. You know common ordinary. Typical Shots NOT
 Snapper Shots (anything goes)  

 Snapper Shot.... did you know they are making plastic cups out of CORN.... check out the bottom of the cup.

We Got Rain!

Florida has been in a drought for about 5 years. Last week, I did a rain dance.... the next day... We Got Rain! two full days.

How to predict weather in Seattle: If you can see Mt Ranier, it’s going to rain. If not, it already is!!!! (groan now)

After 2 days of rain,our powder puff flowers lost their fluff and looked really funny, all bedraggled from being soaked. MadSnapper Macro shows bedraggled is not all bad.
If a band plays music in a thunderstorm, who is most likely to get hit by lightning? The conductor
Why do mother kangaroos hate rainy days? Because then the children have to play inside
If six children and two dogs were under an umbrella, how come none of them got wet? Because it wasn’t raining.

What do clouds want to be when they grow up? -Thunderstorms

In the summer desert heat, what did a dust devil say to the over-talkative dust devil? -You are really blowing a lot of hot air (for those of you who don't get rain)


If you are a follower of MadSnapper, you may be thinking this....

Everyone has a photographic memory. Some just don't have film.
