"Living without faith is like driving in a fog.” Proverb







And trying to take pictures out in fog is equally as difficult and cold. Went out this morning to see If I could capture the huge flock of geese that hang out in a field that I pass by and of course they were not there so I drove around town till I found something to take pictures of. Could not quite get the right settings so I enhanced of course with textures!

Apostrophe *S*

A funny thing about anonymous comments left on your blog. You have no idea who they are or where they come from. Could it be a kind neighbor next door? Or someone who knows nothing about me and feels the need to correct me.
The other day I got a comment that basically in a kind way corrected me. I think when I started this blog I told everyone that I was not a writer and struggled with it . Thank heavens for spell check or I would not be able to communicate at all!
Dennis and I happened to walk down the halls of the Jr. High that we attended last weekend when we came up to my old English class it was my least favorite class. I recall the teacher called me the class clown and she did not appreciate it when I interrupted the rest of the class. Old memories are so fun to re-live, wonder if it was my old English teacher coming back to haunt me for the trouble I had caused?
Most the time the anonymous comments come in a form of male enhancement drugs or a ladies escort businesses or in a language I do not care to translate. One of my most recent ones talked about purgatory and the end of civilization, now that one was scary!
So thank you who ever you are I stand corrected! I will never use the 's again. One thing I have learned about raising kids that have learning disabilities of one kind or another is that they are what they are and no matter what there are some things that can not be changed. I have one son that can not spell but he can do things that someone who knows how to spell and punctuate can not do, he can over see up two to three different multimillion dollar construction sites at a time. So now I have vented I am done.











This is Ruth she was an older sister to my Dad. I have a little wallet size picture of her that I put into Photo-shop and added some textures to it. She is standing in front of an old Mormon church in Bountiful. It still stands today. She died shortly after this was taken.

gOOdBye 20--HeLLo 30

“No matter what age you are, or what your circumstances might be, you are special, and you still have something unique to offer. Your life, because of who you are, has meaning.”
Barbara De Angelis



Hard to believe the little artist who drew this for Dennis and I is

*TURNING 30*

(she has struggled /obsessed/ cried with it for some odd reason)

Have no idea why, she is a great Mom and she has a great guy who loves her LOTS and two little girls that keep her busy. All I can say it has been a wonderful experience having her in our lives. So if you have an extra minute to hop over to Kacy's blog feel free to give her ALL THE ADVISE you want and tell her that her Mom sent you.

viewpoint--a place from which something can be viewed


Most the time when we go on our horseback rides we are on top of the mountains looking west out at Antelope Island But these pictures today will give you a different perspective I will be on the island shooting east back towards the mountains. (click on name and it will take you to the islands website)



The island is full of wildlife you can always find bison, antelope, deer and for the first time I have seen coyotes.


























the little star in the background is where we started from, I have more pictures posted on my Flickr site
