Good morning fellow shutterbugs. I haven't started the thread in a while, so I thought I might start with some spring flowers this morning. I took these a day or so ago during an afternoon walk around the neighborhood with my daughter and granddaughter.



Lots of red flowers blooming.







I posterized this one a bit with PSP7

Hope all have a great weekend. Hope to BBL today.

Nice shots, I need to get out! Got to do laundry today, maybe after that.

Good morning to all.

Love those flowers! Things aren't quite blooming here yet but there's lots of buds on the trees. Soon the orchards will be in bloom but we have been having morning frosts and the odd little snow storm the last few days so hope they don't freeze.

I went out shooting on Thursday and managed to find a few things to point the lens at.

American Kestrel pair


Turkey Vulture


Haven't started planting the garden yet but the cold crops could be in now - peas, etc. My rhubarb is up about an inch, the lilacs and forsythia are budding, the bleeding heart is showing signs it survived the winter. YAY!

So nice to see Micheal and Dudley back posting and shooting.

Hope everyone has a great day!

The hug basket has been refilled and it is now overflowing once more. Thanks for the expressions of sympathy this past week.

Cheers,
Sue

Nice to be back Sue! Nice to see you too!

Nice pics. We have turkey vultures around here. We are close to Hinkley Ohio, where they gather.

Here is the squirrel that came into our house the other day.
I was unloading our groceries and had the door propped open and as I turned around to bring in more groceries, there it was standing on the landing looking up at me in my kitchen.

Instead of freaking out, I calming spoke to it and told it that he coulded come any further and should go back outside encouraing it with my hands.

Luckily he turned and went out and followed me to the garage where I gave it some nuts. This little squirrel is so tame and was so happy that I was successful in getting it out of the house.

Re: Shutterbug Daily, Saturday, March 24, 2012

Hi all, just a very quick post as time is really tight today with my grandsons hockey winding down and lacrosse starting up. I raised my kids without grand parents around and realized how important a role grand parents play, so I am trying to be as active as I can with them.

Re: Shutterbug Daily, Saturday, March 24, 2012

I was fortunate. My parents moved to within 2 blocks from our house when my children were 2 and 4. My kids would walk to grandma and grandpa's house to play ball, play in the sand box, play cards, etc. It was so great for my children and my parents. My kids were so close to my parents. My parents could not see the kids enough and my children really grew close to them. As my parents grew old, I along with my children were able to care for them.

For awhile it became difficult for me to manage juggling the family responsibilities, my parents needs and work, but I wouldn't have it any different. I was blessed.

My brother moved to Colorado after he graduated from the U of Michigan. He raised a family of four there. No grandparents around for them our there except for a yearly visit. They don't know what they missed.

"Hug someone you love today.
Cheers,

"

Sure need a reminder now and again to do just that. All this talk of grandparents remind me of how valuable having dozens of extended family members around was when I was growing up. Sure wish I had caught the Shutterbug Fever back then. Maybe that is why I want to take so many photos today, just everyday stuff, but maybe someday it will let my grandkids and great grandkids (someday) to see what life was like for the two of us and our pooches

Hey maybe Ken Burns' great-great-grandkids will use some of our photos to document what life was like "way back then" in Chattanooga when life was good.



note the sign off to the far right above the Lion's posterior...



before there was an Internet, the best way to advertise was a flashy neon sign enticing the passerby to come on in...



oddly enuf, there are no 'frog legs' advertised on the sign...



time takes a toll on us all



this is why we need to take photos frequently, this was what was happening at the rear of that old hotel



"NO ESCAPE" from 'progress'.
Bet those old hallways and rooms could tell us some tales.

Like all of us, here today, gone tomorrow,
but boy what a great time we had!

Life IS good

Greg
