          Pauline, awesome big house! I'm so happy you are so happy!!   looks like you'll have plenty of room in your back yard to garden this summer?? (or is it always cold in the UK? i really don't know, lol....)      hey.... just so you know....

          when we post pics here, before actually submitting them, after you choose it and download it, you can click on the pic, it'll get markers on all 4 corners and you can resize it if you like.....   I just learned that! lol.... thought i'd share it

                          Everything below the first one was too wide for the software.  If you click on them you'll see the full width.

        Rainbow....jpg

        on 1/22/10 just before i was to go thru a trial in my life, i looked up to the sky.... and saw this Perfect, Beautiful, Rainbow!!!  Amazing how it prepared me, and gave me the strength which i needed....  Aww... B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L

          Sarah, that's an amazing picture.  I loved it.  Your comments reminded me of a time when I lived in southern California (Belmont Shores, near Long Beach), and was going through a major crisis in my life.  I wandered out to the beach that night, and stood there looking out at the ocean. I was thinking of how it would solve all my problems if I just walked in, started swimming, and never turned back.  I suddenly focused on the area where the waves were breaking, and saw an amazing sight.  The red tide was in, and there was an eerie phosphorescent glow every time the waves broke.  I stood there for the longest time, watching this beautiful sight, and forgetting for the time to dwell on my problems.

           

          That beautiful sight seemed to me to be a sign from God, and broke my focus on my problems.  I turned around, walked back home, and here I am all these years later.

           

          Thanks for the picture, and for bringing back a memory.

            Pegetha... i know Belmont Shore, and i too have some similar stories from before, So..... Thank God for  red tides and phosphorescent glows!!  (the vision of what you described is amazingly wonderful!) Isn't God's timing is perfect!    There's so much Beauty everywhere..... we just need to open our eyes to it.

          That is beautiful.  It's perfectly framed and, well, the lighting is breathtaking.  Is it untouched or did you run it by Photoshop on the way here?

           

          Either way, I think it's the prettiest thing posted, with the exception of my wife's pic of the Inside Passage, of course.

           

          Thanks

            thanks Tex, glad you liked it.... actually i took that pic with my (not so good cell phone! lol...) but i guess i got lucky!  actually i took about 8-10 shots (i was so awed by the perfect rainbow) and just picked out what i thought to be the best shot

            and hey..... who can compete with your wife's pic of Inside Passage!!??  those pics of yours were all very inspiring to me...... (my lil' getaway!)

                Since most of us are tired of cold, snow, and gloomy weather, I thought I would post this.

                My cat was snoozing in the sun last summer, not a care in the world.

                 

                HANG ON, WARMER WEATHER WILL RETURN!!!

                              And finally the tattoo!IMG00733.jpg It's still a little bit pinker than it will end up, just got it done yesterday, but I'm really happy with how it came out.

                                Interesting tat.  I hope you cleared it with the doc, first.  And what is it, exactly?  Something I should recognize or something that means something personal to you.

                                 

                                Also an interesting move with the hair.  Seems most woemen want to let it grow for awhile after the Big C.  I'm proud.

                                 

                                Finally, where the jokes?

                                  Tex, I did get it approved by doc first, and it is a personal tat. Symbolizes life, and even though there's some pretty nasty stuff that can happen, there's still some beauty to be found. That, and orchids are my favorite flowers I sketched it and the design, short of the actual inking is all mine

                                  As for the cut, I've never lost my hair entirely, it's just thinned out with different meds. But about every 2 to 3 years I have let it grow, and then cut it and donated it to Locks of Love. It was time to do that again

                                  I promise to post some new jokes asap!

    OK everyone.  Many of you probably did not see this on the parents board, so I will share it here as well.

     

    This is Half Dome in Yosemite.

     

    Half-Dome_Sample Pic.jpg

     

    Now, here is my son Sam on top of Half Dome

     

    Sam Half Dome Reduced Size.jpg

     

    Sam was DX with ALL on 1/2004, completed treatment 5/2007, and is now 3 1/2 years OT.  21 and a college senior this year.

     

    That hike is a 4800 foot vertical climb, the last 600' or so is hanging onto steel cables embedded into the rock to get to the top.  Took him about 10 hours round trip (including an hour up at the top).

     

    Hoping these pictures are going to show up.
