The most prolific Female Panda in captivity. She is such a good little mommy.
One of my beautiful kids, all grown up now and more beautiful than ever. We have had several play dates in the College Photo Studio. Great toys to play with. Thanks Keith Hanz for all you do for us.
Conner the futuristic Lightening Mc Queen race car driver is clutching an ancient old rag bunny in his arms. Replica of a toy bunny made for me by my sister Connie Blanchard. One of my prized possessions.
Getting the photos ready and all the info to put the Loma Linda House up on VRBO site. Coming along nicely. I am finally getting this internet. It is about time!
This is most of my gears from many years past. I was soooooo resistant to digital but now I am all in. It is just getting better and better. It is definitely a different type of fun from watching the photos slowly, magically appear in the chemicals, but lots of fun just the same. There was definitely something great about that darkroom. Even the stinky smell was some how pleasant, similar to skunk and coffee!
Grandma's Buffet was her "pride and joy" and when it was given to me by her I understood what she was giving me. It was not a piece of furniture that appealed to me at the time but I so understood the significance of the gift. As the years have passed I have come to treasure it more and more. Grandma taught me about hospitality both in a positive and negative way. Family was always welcome and fed well, while as many people of that era, there was little tolerance for anyone that was different from you. My father, whose parents emigrated here from Italy, was considered undesirable. From my mother I learned to embrace differences, which is definitely a big plus when you want to be hospitable.
Reviewing and revising some good old basic habits. Eating better, fresh air, exercise, schedule chores, schedule play, check planner and keep on track. Have been off schedule for toooooo long. Let's get rollin'!!!
This guy was on the move this morning and was quite happy with his bone. At one point he picked it up with his mouth and tossed it in the air.
Pacific Photography Society Meetup took a trip to the Wild Animal Park associated with the San Diego Zoo. It is such a great place with beautiful gardens and animals that are as near to free as you can be and be in a zoo. They have lots of room and you can take photos for the most part without wires and screens in your way. Next best thing to a real safari. Our fearless leader got us out early and down to the cheetahs before there morning nap. Thanks Walter Koenig and Jim Stone!
As Mooshie and I had our lunch at Chipoltile in Menifee, CA. We noticed we had a lot of little visitors at our table. I got the bright idea to bring some home. They were eating grape leaves and had pretty much demolished the small vines there. I have a huge vine with plenty of leaves and no guests so I decided to capture a few. Mooshie had an empty lunch container to help transport them home. She doesn't want it back. I can clean it!!
Training from my little girl on how to blow a proper kiss. I could use some instruction on a proper wink also. I always look as if I have some type of severe problem with my coordination!
