Flickr Favorites

What?? No aqua? Was my flirtation with bluish-greeny goodness only a Summer Fling? This week I favorited about half as many photos as usual – guess I was busy with other things.

Is it Wednesday already?

Wow. Normally I’m a couple of days ahead, but today I’m behind and having a hard time remembering it’s already Wednesday. I took a lot of slice-of-life pictures today, and I’ll probably share some of them here, but first, my parents’ wedding picture. It’s their 37’th anniversary today. I’m not sure if they ever read […]
