Why, Hello!

I've been gone a spell.
Did you notice?
I'm back now.
Ready to get caught up...
after missing you all.
A few things have
been happenin'
around here
since I've
been away.
So what do ya'll say
we get caught back up?
I guess the most significant thing
is I've turned another year older.
Before anyone asks,
I'll just tell ya'll,
I'm 50 crabby.
Ha!  Not really,
it just sounds good.
Well, actually,
sometimes I am,
but we won't talk about that.
The next best thing that happened
was I got a NEW CAMERA!!!
Still not as fancy as ya'll but look at these shots!



They are fuzzy.
Not perfect.
But these
are SOOC
before I even read any directions.
I'm just so happy
cause now you can
actually see
the birds I photograph.
And just wait
til you see
what I have for you later this week!
I can hardly wait!
Thank you family
and friends for
this new camera!
Especially my sister
and her husband.
I love you ALL!

Until then,
I'll be working on trying
to catch up with all of you!
 I'm looking forward to it!

Oh how exciting! A new toy for Jill. Can't wait to see more photos of your pretty home and surroundings. xo

It is not just the camera, you clicked great pictures.

If only good cameras got good pictures, then I guess the rich people would hoard the good ones and exhibit their pictures. :-)
