Withdrawal

Another before/after rollover with just minor adjustments...after 7 days of rain, cold and yes, snow, I needed a reminder of what that big, yellow thing looks like. Hoping it returns today!

Remotes

While taking fall pictures, the kid got a hold of my remote. 'Nuf said! :)

Mouse-over

I saw this tutorial from Rita @ The Coffeeshop Blog and thought I would try it. I love this picture, but it was kind of blah. So I adjusted it a little and added a couple textures....(Rita's again)  ...and Jerry's raised texture. If you run your mouse of it, you'll see the before/after...well, that's kind of backwards, because I've got the 'after' first. :)

Over the river...

The guys went fishing over the weekend and caught a bunch of fish. They came home so excited about going again on Sunday. Unfortunately they were rained out, but planned on going Monday after school. More rain Monday, but it cleared a enough to head back out after school. As we got closer to the "honey hole", I knew we were in for a lack luster fishing day. I could tell the streams were running high from the rain runoff and turning down the farm road, there was a "road closed" sign. I wasn't worried about the bridge (or cement pad) that crossed the river, because we weren't crossing, but if it was closed, then the river was also high and fishing was going to stink. I was right.

The spillway was overflowing big time! And lots of foam!

Even weeds can be pretty!

This just looks like winter! The top of the spillway and all the white is the foam floating downstream.

Sunset

We were supposed to get bad storms today. The kids got out of school early "just in case"...well, we may not have gotten the storms, but we got an awesome sunset.

Cotton anyone?

I happened to be in town last week and saw a cotton field that had not been stripped yet. Had a few minutes and there was an easy spot to pullover without getting run over, so I stopped. (I also resized wrong, so these are a bit smaller. )

Thankful

Happy (belated) Veteran's Day to our Soldiers. Thank YOU for keeping the 'free' in Freedom. The Day after Veteran's day, we were out of town for a baby shower. While running an errand, I stopped at the KY Veteran's Cemetery. I've always wanted to drive thru it, but never had a chance. It seemed like a perfect day to do it and I made the time. All I can say is what an incredible tribute to our fallen Hero's. It took my breath away.

I did not realize they had a piece of the World Trade Center steel...but it's another beautiful tribute.

I did not realize when I was standing in front of the "new" section that I had tears rolling down my face.

I am thankful I took the time to pay tribute.

Fall

I took the boys falls pictures...several times actually. It wasn't that the first time didn't turn out...they did...but I wanted some pretty fall sunlight in there and the first time the sun just wouldn't cooperate. I'm still working thru them, but this one just cracks me up. It was at the end and they were both ready to go. My little ham is so full of expression...he always makes me laugh!
