So many great photos to comment on. Conor has gotten so big from when you last posted regularly, Copago! Wish you lived closer to Santana (or vice versa) so the boys could get together. Sounds like they would have a blast!

Congratulations, Ozzz!!! I was fascinated by your scrabble board. I also love that game, but I would have been hopelessly lost with words like 'twp'. However, the doxy I would have gotten, as that's a little fairy-like creature from the Harry Potter books. It probably has another meaning but that's the only one I know!

Which brings me to Professer's photo - really neat to see that area - my girls will like to see that photo. They are big HP fans.

TW, your wife is quite a talented lady - would love to see some more of her handywork!

Awesome closeup bee shot, bhs. I love busy bees.

Ok, here's mine for the day. We visited the annual "Bark in the Park" on Saturday, and met lots of adorable little friends there:

Telly,
The quilt is gorgeous. You should post a full size pic of Mrs. T's wonderful work.



I did display the quilt in the Craft Circle Photo Gallery a while back. It's about ¾ of the way down this page (post #1005156). Now the exhibition is over, I think the plan is to actually put it on the bed .

I have NO idea what a 'doxy' is, but I DO know it is a legitimate word.





Ozzz, a doxy is a prostitute or a disreputable mistress. And after looking at your scrabble board, I'm not so sure about playing Scrabble with you next Easter!

A few Scrabble eye openers there, although I didn't realise Welsh was allowed- although part of the British Isles it is a separate language and if one word is let in does that mean that all can be? I'm interested how that sneaked in though as there must be a reason. Yex is one of my favourites, to hawk and spit. I think we need to get that one revived as there isn't really an exact equivalent.

Tell Aidan to start saving his money, Santanna!

I took this sunset photo just last night but it didn't really look that orange - it was good but not quite that deep. I'll take a good photo however I can get them, even by accident, but am not sure why it changed the colour so much. (Tellies? )

Maybe it's a bit under exposed. Were the trees in silhouette to your eyes, or was there foreground detail present that the camera hasn't picked up?

This is the scorebook for the above game. Please excuse the scrappy writing.



You will notice the central panel- that is used for tracking the tiles that have been played. Towards the end of the game, I knew what he had left, and he knew my rack, too.

Wow, so many fantastic photos since I last looked. I especially love the sunset photos; they ARE my favorite, you know. That is a very nice close-up of the moose, SOTHC.

Today I visited a Veterans Cemetary in South Carolina. It was a beautiful day and it was so peaceful just walking through. I snapped off this shot when the sprinklers came on.

I like that effect, ClaraSue! The moose is lovely and the Scrabble pics (and score) impressive

This is a view taken whilst resting part way up the 375 steps of the Governor General's Promenade in Quebec City, looking down at others making the climb, the St Lawrence River, and the QE2 (the nearer ship). The climb starts on the same level as the top of the funiculaire that I showed the other day. The view is worth it, I must say. I did eventually climb all the way to the top, but found a gentler way down again.

This is the River that feeds Shinn Falls, at the right time of year you can see the Salmon Leaping is a fabulous site. You can also visit Harrods there as the visitor centre and falls are owned my Mr Al Fayed.

Excellent photos, I really love the moose one, SOTHC. What beautiful weather you had that day, Liz.

More from the Bark in the Park. Here's an enthusiastic pooch participating in "Splash Dogs". I wish I could remove the light post behind but I have no idea how to!



Professer was kind enough to improve my photo for me! Here is the edited version with the light post removed. Thanks, Professer!

You should have a clone brush in the photo package you use Elaine, just use a small brush and clone the background first the sky and paint over the post working down and clone each area. Is trial and error but after awhile should be easy for you. Especially if i can do it

Sadly, I don't believe I do have a clone brush in my photo package. I tried some of the options in photobucket, but I can't seem to figure out how to make them work. Someone smarter than me could do it, perhaps. Thanks for the help, though!

I haven't just gone to Canada, I turned a corner in Edgware and found this scene in a park. It just shows you never know everything that's around until you go and look.

This was taken looking straight up at the roof of the train station in Quebec City. I've just noticed that in order to view the map of North America properly, one would have to be above the roof.

Beautiful photos everyone.

Here is a visitor we had a few days ago. We leave them be in the paddock but in the yard we kill them - to dangerous to have around.

There are many breathtaking views on the Isle of Skye, This is one looking out to sea from Kilt Rock.

Oooh, what kind of snake is that, Copago?

Butterflies do lead you on a chase just to get a snap.
