Backyard Fun

 I found a new plant....Hens and Chicks are in this little green pot, and a moss rose has taken up residence in the bottom of the dish, I did not put it there.
 As I struggled to get these rain drops and curly cue on the fence, I looked at Hubby's bucket garden and said
"you might as well jerk that old pineapple out and put something else in the bucket, it has had it"
 He put on gloves and went to jerk it out, and said

Look! come look!  it has a pineapple in the center.

 Hubby left it there. If you CLICK HERE  here you will see what will happen to it.If you missed the story last year, go to labels on the side bar and look at Pineapple home grown

We did eat one off the other plant. since this one is 2 years old it was headed for the trash pile.
Did you know ferns are weeds in Florida and come up every where? these are coming up around the buckets and will be pulled up, but why Not Snap?

Accidental Aqua

 Our backyard is surrounded by really tall trees, I stood in the yard after shooting the dogs playing and just aimed up and turned and snapped the tops of our trees, see above collage. nothing special at all.
Out of camera
 I was standing under this pine cone, only 6 feet over my head, and just Snapped and for some unknown reason the photo's came out with aqua tint.

 Pure accident.   I love the color and so does Hubby even though it is not True Color
 OF COURSE I DID! Play I mean  Now I am The Accidental MadSnapper

Shadow Shot Sunday

 He who does not believe has no soul. He is empty. He has no ideals. He has nothing to live for. He has no sunshine, no light, no joy in life. He is a poor, poor man. Robert Ley

This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.  Psalm 118:24

Friday Fence-Tanglewood II

I like work. It fascinates me. I sit and look at it for hours.

A TV can insult your intelligence, but nothing rubs it in like a computer.

A bargain is something you don't need at a price you can't resist.

Thursday Thoughts

As I walked to my car after a visit with Rich, I noticed the Azalea bushes that were as tall as my head waving there flowers at me. I yanked the pocket camera out and SNAP! see what I got? the blur was because the wind was blowing like crazy and the flowers would not stand still.
 I changed the preset on the camera to Sport Mode and this is what I got, not bad since those flowers were really moving in the wind.....

 I will share a WORD Pic that I saw on the way home in our neighborhood

2 little girls, age 7 sitting on the curb in front of their house, chins in hands, a 3rd little girl is pacing in circles in front of them, her hand on one hip,  with her cellphone to her ear she is chatting like a magpie,then waving her free  hand in the air and posing this way and that way, first one hip out then the other and again  her hand on her hip. 

 I slowed to a crawl to watch her and thought I bet her mother does the same thing.

I saved the best for last, if you enlarge you can see the water droplets, not bad for a windy day

Blame it on Ann

 You can blame this post on Ann at Snap!Edit!Scrap she did a post on the white box she built and then started showing photo she took in the white box and one thing led to another...

I am lazy and did not want to go to the store, so looked for something at home. BAZINGA! I will turn the white bucket the chlorine comes in, on its side and Yes, I knew it was SUPPOSED to have light coming in from the sides and top, but I did say I am lazy. Above photo is the best I got in my bucket shoot.
 I played for almost two hours with That Darn Cat...... Above is what I ended up with. light bulb popped on over the cats head and said HEADER......

 I asked Bob to tell me which one he liked and I asked Rich which one and I asked ME and we all THREE voted for the one in the header and the photo below.
Which one would you pick? (please, if you would have picked NONE of the above, say it gently)

On the Way Home

 REMINDER: take that pocket camera every where you go.... Found this pretty girl as I left the dermatologist office this week.

Coming out of Walmart Saturday 7 am I saw a man in a black T-shirt with big yellow C.S.I. across the front and as I walked towards him, I am thinking he works for our sherrif’s dept. when I got close enough to read the rest of the shirt it said...

   Can’t Stand Idiots.

I wanted a photo to show you, and YES I did have the pocket camera, but he would not look at me, so I am guessing the shirt meant what it said.... and he could not stand staring IDIOTS

Tuesday Morning Humor from our house to yours...

I came home with a 12 pack of toilet tissue and as bob carried it in the house, 
I said "GUESS WHAT I PAID for THAT?"   
" What? "Was his answer,

" 7.98" she shouts…. "Can you believe that?"
Bob says with a straight face… 

"Same thing as flushing money down the toilet” and went  back in the garage howling with laughter.

Bottles and Bears, OH MY!

OOPS! Leaning Tower of Bottle
Just Playin I'm Sayin photo shoot at the table AGAIN
Wed. early AM I booted up my laptop and did my emails, checked my blog to make sure Auto Post posted
Next I booted up my desktop and NO INTERNET.... rolled across the floor and checked the laptop, Internet fine. So WHAT is up with the desk top, they are both wireless and one will connect the other says limited access..... I scream down the hall, the blanket y blank desk top has NO Internet.

Hubby replies "did you try the E and the world ball?  that means in hubby speak Internet Explorer and FireFox browsers.

I yell down the hall, they are browsers, has nothing to do with the Internet, they just get me there.Wireless will not connect. He yells, did you check the modem? I said if the modem was not working how would I have it on the lap top..... there war more but not worth typing.
I sat the laptop on the end of the bed and start my Google research to find what is wrong.

 after many not so nice thoughts and words and my BP up to desperate levels. I find a forum that says

You have lost your IP address.... WHAT? how can that happen? What is an IP address, where do i find a new one?

I read a lot of geek talk about re-setting the IP something something and really start to mumble.
After over an hour of reading and trying to follow instructions, I think, well it worked last night and when I call the cable guy, the first thing he says is re-boot the modem and the router.

So I did

and it gave me back my lost IP address. I still don't know what mine is, but who cares now.
I looked up IP address, click here if you care but if you are like ME it will be a waste of good reading time.

The only thing I know about an IP address is we need one to be on the web and that is how they track you down if you do something BAD on the Internet.

 I know this because I have seen it on TV in my thriller/action movies, so that means it is TRUE.

at least I found it so I could show you these dumb photos and tell the dumb story.
