Kapuskasing, your photo is very thought provoking, especially the lighting. It is truly beautiful.

ren, I think 'found dogs' are just so grateful to have been found, don't you? She is a sweetheart, Lisa, and I know it was hard to give her up, but at least she has a home full of love now.

Wow, some really great photos. Kapusaking, your photo is amazing. You could win a contest with that one. And adorable dog, too, CS!

I thought of saving this for Halloween, it has that look about it. A raven on the burned shell of a Joshua tree.

Here's another typical cottage in Hampstead Garden Suburb with some very imaginative gardening. These houses are all worth millions each.

You have no idea how hard it was to give her up (but I know you really do). For having her just a short while, I had really grown attached to her. Every "rescue" dog I have ever had was such a joy. It seems they always seem to know they've been rescued.

Yes, my Lucky was a rescue dog too and he is just adorable. I have posted pictures of him in previous monthly threads in this forum so some of you will have seen him before. If you want to see him, just check out my profile page. http://www.funtrivia.com/profile.cfm

It is indeed striking, with the backlighting on the figures. Terrific!

Wow! Thank you for the compliments on yesterday's photo! It's so much better to share these images rather than have them languish on a hard drive... another reason this forum is great.

Maybe I should post the original, pre-cropped version of the Gettysburg pic, as a before/after. It includes the backside of a large tourist who almost got in the way, and another general lighting a cigarette. Hooray for cropping tools... sneakers and a baseball hat alter the mood a bit!

Today's pic was inspired by the new Fill-Me-In hourly quiz. An oft-repeated question asks something like, "What city is famous for its cheesesteaks?" These suburban steaks aren't ideal examples of the Philly cheesesteak, but you can get the idea. They aren't all this ugly looking. Some of them even taste good.

Yesterday my oldest "graduated" from 5th grade to 6th, which means she's left elementary school behind, and next year it's on to middle school. She's in the middle of her friends Liz and Emily, who are twins.

Djsgal, your daughter is a beauty.
Ren, I've always thought Gnawra was a really beautiful dog. And MG, your Lucky looks so docile. I just love dogs and wish I had more.

To offset the cost of gas these days AND get a little more exercise, hubby and I bought bicycles the other day. It's the first time I've been on a bike in over 15 years and my hind end was really sore after our first 5 mile stint.

I'm loving all of the photos, as usual. ClaraSue, your bike is reminding me that I must get out on mine!

These insects have taken a liking to one upright post of my deck (and only that one, by the look of it), and cluster there daily. They don't seem to be eating it (or me, or Winston) and are rather fascinating to watch. Mind, if someone tells me they're dangerous, I guess I'll do something about them...

djsgal, I know you'll be keeping the boys away in droves from her before too long, if you aren't already. She is beautiful.
Sweet Sidewinder, ClaraSue!
Liz, I don't know what those critters are, they're coloring is rather unique, but I'm glad they aren't eating you and Winston!

Yeww Liz I don't care if they're were eating me or my deck or not I wouldn't want them there anyway. Too many of them for my liking, makes my skin crawl just looking at them.


Are they really that big or is that an extreme closeup?

This is a photo of Grand Beach about a 1 hour drive from Winnipeg on Lake Winnipeg. It's one of the best fresh water beaches in the world, lots of soft white sand with dunes.




In this photo I'm standing just at the water's edge and although it looks like the water gets deep just a few feet away you can see the people farther out and it's barely over their knees. The markers you can see in the distance is to mark where power boats have to stay outside. The water there is perhaps chest deep. A great beach for kids.

It's a macro shot, so pretty close up. Some of them are quite a size though

I enjoyed seeing your photo of the rigs Professor. I've always thought what a feat that is, the oil rigging work in the North Sea.
