A HAPPY REUNION TODAY……HAD BEEN QUITE AWHILE SINCE KELLY LAST SAW HER YOUNGEST DAUGHTER
WE PASS THIS SPOT EVERY MORNING ON OUR WALK:))
Pheebs had an appointment with the Vet this morning. Nothing serious, just her annual rabies shot, tag, & signed paper in case she is asked for her papers at the border. To date we have never been asked for doggy papers at the border, either going or coming back.
ENJOYING SOME WARM OCTOBER SUNSHINE
Mark, over at BOX CANYON BLOG has pretty much wrapped up his remodelling job on the rear interior of their Lazy Daze RV. Nice job & he has lots of photos. Oh how I wish I was more of a handy man type guy, but that requires a lot of patience. And, speaking of patience, I can't imagine myself having enough of that stuff to do the double deck sanding & staining job MERIKAY & husband Craig are currently working on. Yikes.
THIS IS THE BACKGROUND PHOTO WE HAVE ON OUR DESKTOP COMPUTER
Had an interesting email from a long time reader about photo retouching. In the email, reader says, " I work at a pre-press studio where we do mostly image retouching. I can tell you that 90% of all images that go thru here have some retouching done to them. It may be as small as adjusting skin tones right up to full blown adding mountains or rivers etc. I find it funny when I read about people complaining that an image in a magazine looks "Photoshoped" If they only knew how extensive it is". Thanks J:))
LITTLE KAYAKS, BIG LAKE
Decided to have us look on the RV NET FORUM at what fellow RV'ers had to say about the Blue Ridge Parkway. Found 13 pages on that topic & it's a mixed bag of opinions. We're not ones to shy away from a few tougher driving conditions but we will have to pour some more thought into that route. We'll decide on things in a couple weeks when we are approaching the northern end of the Parkway region. We appreciate the feedback. And Alice, I will answer your question about ‘dark backgrounds’ in my next post:))
AFTER FIGURING IT OUT, THIS IS THE FIRST PHOTO KELLY TOOK WITH THE BLACKBERRY PLAYBOOK ON OUR WAY TO SEE UNCLE HARRY TUESDAY…NEXT, SHE WILL HAVE TO SHOW ME HOW TO USE THE PLAYBOOK CAMERA…….:))
Kelly's youngest daughter & her husband Ricardo, moved from Spain to Vancouver about a year & a half ago. They just re-located to Cambridge Ontario last week & late this afternoon came to DEER PARK LODGE to spend a few days in the Bayfield area. Today was only the second time in four & a half years that Kelly & Rebecca have seen each other. I hadn’t seen Rebecca & Ricardo since Kelly’s SURPRISE BIRTHDAY PARTY back in early April of 2008. They had supper at our place tonight & both Kelly & I were trying to think of the last time we had someone here for supper………had to be a couple years ago. We will be seeing more of Rebecca & Ricardo over the next few days:))
A HAPPY MOTHER-DAUGHTER REUNION
OF COURSE PHEEBS IS ALWAYS HAPPY TO EVERYBODY:))
RICARDO IS A HIGHLY EUROPEAN TRAINED & WELL TRAVELED FIBER OPTICS TECHNICIAN & REBECCA HAS TAUGHT ‘ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE’ IN JAPAN, SPAIN, & VANCOUVER… HER TRAVELS HAVE ALSO TAKEN HER TO INDIA & ENGLAND.
AUTUMN OAK LEAVES
GROANER'S CORNER:(( A pirate goes into a bar and sits down.
The bartender says: "Wow, you look like you've had a long life. Tell me about it. How did you get your wooden leg?" " Arrr.... me ship capsized and a shark bit me leg off. Then while loading a canon it blew me hand clean off".
"What about the eye-patch?".
"I happened to look up when a gull flying overhead crapped on me eye".
"Well, that's not that bad..is it?"
"It was the first day I got me hook".
