Remember this pot of oriental lilies on the right? It has completely fizzled out...
Had planned on photographing the azaleas while in full bloom - they were beautiful, but they did not make that grand presentation that they have in some past years, and when they were in full bloom we had some heavy rains that really beat them down.
Have been out and about quite a bit recently, and other azaleas in the area are gorgeous and in their full glory. Guessing mine had their timing messed up - maybe next year.
**********Down Memory Lane: Lets see - I am (?) yrs. old, my children are grown and have families of their own. Well - Okee DoKee ! Quite evening, playing catchup on email/blog surfing. You know - All that important stuff. You get an email from one of the "off springs", who is on the computer reminiscing the "good ole days" asking if I remember a certain person from her past who had passed away. She knew him from "day care thru high school days". Uhh!?! NO! Sorry - he does not look familiar. Then she reminds me of the time our house got "rolled" - Yep! He was one of the culprits involved.
Then we reminisced about "the old neighborhood" and the way things used to be. The children played outside when the weather was nice, and they knew to come home when the street lights came on. There were no video/computer games in the house, and no cable (main reason for no cable - not in budget).
************Same "off spring" called today and said this spoiled rotten furbaby started running in circles, acting crazy, jumped up on back of couch to look out window and fur on neck and back stood straight up.
***********On a dark/dreary/rainy day recently I decided it was past time for me to clean out my pictures on the computers - what a mess. Thought I had done a better job of keeping up with that - but guess not! Some of them I am not even sure why I would have kept in the beginning - please tell me I am not the only one that does that. Anyway - My albums are in "fair" shape now. Maybe - Just maybe I can find what I am looking for now. I can hope!
**************Anyone else having problems uploading pictures to posts? Once I select picture, it takes a while for it to upload in the "insert image" box before I can upload it on a post. This just started a couple of days ago. Have checked the "help" section and done the google thing, but did not find anything.
Never found a solution to my profile image disappearing either.
**********Raining as I type, more tonight and tomorrow, and temps dropping. "They" are saying we won't go back to normal temps for this time of the year until next Thursday. The weather in this area has always changed at the drop of a hat, but has really been on a roller coaster the last year.
Just another one of those rambles....
Have a great weekend!
