What a Let Down!!!

I was following a blog.. a photographer’s blog.

Some of the pictures were /are just phenomenal.  I was so totally impressed.

UNTIL…… drum roll please.

He claims to have taken this picture a couple of weeks ago, February 18th…. but I used it as my profile picture back in November.

And there is a Facebook site, with this as their profile picture, since November.

Unless of course, this is his Facebook page.. but as I said, it’s been there since November, and the one on the website says he just took it.

Click here for the Facebook page.


Now I have to wonder if ANY of his pictures…are his.  Sigh… too bad.

And he says at the end *Truth Hurts*????? Really?

I wasn’t going to add the link to the post, but I added a comment which the photographer decided to not post…so here ya go.

An Early Halloween Posted Late?

Ha ha ha… my friend and I did an early Halloween party!  We had a blast… wore wigs, and then we got us some sidewalk chalk, and some bubbles, and some plasticine and we got colorful!

Angie (Strawberry Shortcake) Me (A pumpkin) Ha!

Welcome Home AlphaBetta!

I got a new fish!  He’s just beautiful!  I’ve had a lot of Betta’s in my life.. and they’ve all been purple and blue.  I just love them… so today, passing the pet store, I popped in, on a whim.  So here he is!!!  TADA!  Announcing, AlphaBetta!  He’s going to be called Alpha for short!

Betta fish are fighting fish.  If you put two males together they will fight… their faces get all puffed up as do their fins.  This can also be achieved using a mirror…they’re easy to trick. lol  But I won’t, seems mean to me.

They’re quite phenomenal looking.  I’ve always been taken with them, the vivid colors.

Yes, he is being moved into a larger area.  lol

They sell them in cups!  I asked the woman if they had any Bettas and she says yes, they’re over there in the cups…. I said – in cups?  IN CUPS?  lol

As we were looking at them I glanced down just in time to noticed tons of bugs running across the floor away from the saleswoman’s feet!

I, of course, freaked out… and backed up… lol  She had been holding a bag of crickets and absent-mindedly had it upside down…they all escaped!  RUN little crickets RUN!!!


His new home…just set it up today… I can’t wait to put him in there.  He is going to love it.  It’s too cold now, though..have to wait. lol

Update:  Well, he’s home now..and he thinks he is some flashy!  He’s flitting all around, swimming through the railings on the bridge, swimming under it… zigzagging!  lol  I think he’s happy, and not bored anymore. 😀

A Painting We Will Go!

So yesterday and the day before I went and helped my friend paint her livingroom.  It was so terrific..we giggled our buns off. lol  The colors were just wonderful!  She had already chosen a color for the main wall.  Sea Fan…it’s sort of a coral color.  Somewhere between orange and peach… very vivid, bright, and happy!  After we did all the prep and the ceiling, and the one wall, we went to Canadian Tire to get the second color.  We had one in mind, but they didn’t have it… so we got one that was close.  Neither of us very happy that they couldn’t supply us with our choice. lol  It was according to my paint book…but they didn’t have that type of paint.  However, when he opened the tin and showed us, we both exclaimed, rather jubilantly – YES!  At the same time. lol  As we were leaving the store a woman says *have fun!*  And again, we both said *we are!* at the same time.  lol  The pictures don’t do the colors justice because of the lack of appropriate lighting. 😦 … they’re very vibrant and a lot of fun.  Of course, my cam was set up on the tripod… and it got paint on it.  Now it’s thoroughly broken in!  I love photography and painting and most of what I own has paint on it. lol

The prep work took us about four hours. lol  We cleaned, filled holes, sanded, washed walls and the floor.  Moved everything about.  But well worth it as the painting was much easier after that!

Angie was a total sweetheart and took over the rolling!  Yay!

This left me the cutting in and trim!  Which I love to do!  This was the beginning – the first color!

This was Angie’s first creation.  LOL  I dipped into it, no sense wasting it!!!

This delightful bit was Angie’s second creation!  LOL  She apparently liked it there. 🙂

The beginning of color number two! 🙂  Yes, I cut in by hand… tape is so misleading, I never use it.  If you don’t have it down quite right, the paint runs under it…. bletch!

Finished!  Shazam!  See how quick that was?  lol  Yes, here it’s quick…. but it was about 12 hours of painting, all told.  Not bad. 🙂

What’s next?  The bedroom, oh yes! lol 🙂

And here’s our spooky picture, just for good measure. lol  I was playing with cam settings!

Tripody Happiness!

My friend got me two tripods!

Now, if the moon ever eclipses again, I’m ready. lol

Seriously, I love it.  He gave me a big one and a small one!  The big one has two levels on it and a compass!!  Imagine that! lol

So thrilled!!  I keep thinking about going out just to get pix now. lol  It’s bad enough I go nowhere without my camera, now it’s going to be my camera AND tripod…groan. lol Well worth it, says I. 😀

It gets much taller than this – but to save space I have it shorter for now. 🙂

A whole family of tripody happiness!!!  lol
