My favorite folks ! :)

Greasy, grimy, gopher guts

I often am at a loss for a title.

As always i've plenty bopping around my head, but i think the "me, me, me" style of my posting gets to me at times & i need a break. So i go read about other folks. :)

There are so many types of blogs. Some are like wonderful magazine articles or pics, or like catalogs with pics of home decor, or there are wonderful cooking ones too. I tend to write more like i would in a journal, so sometimes i bore even myself.

Think i'm not going to do the linky s anymore for a while, either. I've met some really wonderful folks thru them, but i find it hard to open page after page after page of cute children & babies. No offense. To those with kids i love hearing of your lives, & particularly if we actually interact it means a lot to me. But, quite honestly, i'm a bit bitter & fighting with it. I opened over 250 of the 900+ on that last linky, & most
of them were beautiful babies, etc. It just got to be a bit much. I kept pushing myself on (being a bit obsessive-compulsive i wanted to do them ALL) but started to get overwhelmed & depressed. Just too many folks for me to try to work thru.

We thought this a funny name for a store in Jackson Hole, WY.

There is upheaval soon to come in our family soon. Fortunately, it probably won't effect us too much. I mentioned Sis #2 is moving with 5 of her kids. I just learned that she did not inform said kids of such a move. They thought it was a temporary thing. The oldest still at home is soon to be 18 & just graduated HS. She was planning to live @ home & commute to school. The move Sis #2 is planning is 1,000 miles away.
Huge change, but she didn't tell any of the kids. ! ! ! ! The youngest is 9, so they are all old enough to have been told. So i'm angry at Sis on their behalf, & sad for the family.

None of my business, but i'm trying to pray for them.

Not a moose, but he does have antlers!

Sis #3 is dating someone a lot older than herself. He is very nice, but not who i would wish for her. Life sure isn't very fair.

Duane & i talked extensively on our choices for having a family. It doesn't look very good, doesn't feel very good. I'll write on that some other time.

It is hard to believe, but with 9000+ pics i'm scrambling for things to post! Many, many of those pics are people, however. And many of the total need to be culled.

Oh, i've still plenty of beautiful pics. Will have to go thru them more thoroughly. I've some beautiful sunsets from a couple of years ago. Have a good day! I'm not as depressed as i sound, i promise! :)

I can sure empathize with the upheaval! Life is not smoothing out yet for me - so I'm riding the waves and hoping it's just some awesome breakers and not a tsunami (tee hee), but I'm riding them blind.

Don't do the linkys anymore if you don't want. I do understand and personally, it's your choice.

Wow, I feel for the kids having that kind of move foisted on them, I would hope she understands that she is going to have 5 very disappointed and potentially pouting (or worse) kids on her hands for quite some time.

I love your photos, they're like a relaxing song for the eyes!

moving is a BIG deal, even moving from the couch to the dinner table. It is wise not to take too much offense for teh wrongs visited on another. Just pray and be ready to empathize if needs be.
here at the beach all is well and I am trying to write a few things ( yay) and take lots of cool pictures

i know that it is hard to read page after page of those and see cute baby after cute baby. i have gone through, somewhat obsessively and clicked on some(o.k. all) of the links on there too...and found the same thing.

i am so glad, however, that you clicked on MY page, and made comments, because then it lead me to YOUR page!

Keep up the writing, i love the pictures...

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I really appreciate any reader who stops by and leaves such a lovely comment.

I love living in WV and sometimes wish we didn't live in the city as we don't get to see as much of the beautiful country as i would like.

I am sorry to hear about your loss. My niece's angelversary is August 31st. She would have been 2 this year. She passed away in her mommy's tummy from a cystic hygroma with fetal hydrops. I can not imagine the pain it must cause to see others with children and want that for yourself and your husband.

I hope to see you again and take care. I added you to my reader.
