Saturday, July 16, 2011      4 comments

I am running so far behind tonight t'ain't funny. Today's assignment: "A picture of someone who inspires you." There are quite a few people who inspire me. I don't think I'm at all in their league, but I sometimes use them as motivato... Read more

"A picture of something you want to do before you die." It wasn't all that long ago that I first heard the term 'bucket list,' but it certainly clicked for me: I knew what it had to be as soon as I heard it. So what's on my bucket list... Read more

Beautiful summer weather today, so we went to another estate, Hardwick Hall. I'll tell you all about it, probably in August, complete with pix. Until then, however, July is blocked out for photo blogs. Today also has two: the first is "A pi... Read more

Today turned out great: the sky cleared up, with just some puffy clouds, so we did our picnic thing and went to a National Trust estate, one we hadn't visited before. I'll blog about it soon and post some pictures, but we got home just in the ni... Read more

Day 12 with the photo blogs is also a double. First assignment is, '"A picture that defines you." I don't want to get too cerebral with this - I'm not inclined to work that hard at it. What in the world would depict a definition of mys... Read more

I'm doing a somewhat-early blog tonight. It's been a little busy today, what with groceries, podiatrist (just a check - everything's good), some laundry, and even a floor scrubbing or two in there. I think all that calls for an early night. ... Read more
Day 191: Photo Blog #10
Sunday, July 10, 2011      8 comments

"A picture of your closest friend." Any of you who read my blogs know whose picture is coming up. I don't know why it is men aren't necessarily ideal friends for women. I don't think that whole physical-attraction business gets in the ... Read more

Today is another 'twofer' - "A picture that motivates you to do more" and the second, "A picture of the person who has gotten you through the most." I'll address the second one first. (You know how it is, marching to the beat of a different... Read more

Well, it should've been easy: "A picture that makes you laugh." The trouble is there are so many! Here's the way my mind works. But I wanted something all the S... Read more

Today's blog: "A picture of your most treasured item." Come along with me as we take a trip on The Train of Thought. My most treasured item... Now, I've been trying to pare down my materialistic attachments. Part of that stems from th... Read more

Damocles was a minor official at the court of Dionysius II, a ruler in Italy, in the 4th century BC. Fawning over his king, Damocles raved about how lucky Dionysius was - power, wealth, everything at his command, and surrounded by all the luxuri... Read more

Today's blog assignment is another double-header: the first is "A picture of your favorite animal." That one is easy. My favorite animal is a dog. Any dog. Every dog. To paraphrase Will Rogers, I never met a dog I didn't like. To be su... Read more

Just a quickie. I've had a few people comment and email about the photo blog themes, where I found them and so on. The original list I read was a suggestion on the WeBlog team. Here's a link to that thread: www.sparkpeople... Read more

Today's assignment: "A picture of the cast of your favorite TV show; and a picture of your favorite color." This strikes me as a little odd - the pairing, that is, not the 'items' themselves. Kind of sounds as though someone couldn't make ... Read more
