The two or three inches of powder won't make a snowman or even a snow ball. Usually a fresh snow in Grand Junction brings out the kids, but there aren't even any tracks. What'sa matter with kids today?

I remember when....


...when Jim was a boy and dinosaurs roamed the earth!


I hated to see the dinosaurs go ... great drum sticks! :D

That's alright Jim. I miss my first pet Dino too.

I can remember when I was a kid in Iowa after WWII, we had a string of winters so cold that some people talked about the return of the Ice Ages. Now when I talk about all the time I spent playing hockey on the park lagoon, they look at me like I'm crazy. Well, I mean more do when I talk about that.

Duffy ... I am glad to see you posting ... makes me feel good .... you and I are close to being the oldest on the list and long as you are around .. know that I have someone that understands the same "English" that I do!!!

I wouldn't worry too much about people thinking you are crazy ... unless they start fitting you for one of those nice white jackets that buckle in the back. Sanity is very over rated anyhow! Ask Les!!! :D

I tried to get some ice pictures, but I don't have the skill to do it justice. Here, however, is a wild shot of a heavy snow we got a few weeks ago.

I accidentally left the flash on, and look what happened when flash hit snowflakes.

(edited to update photo. Adrian showed me how to crop it. Thanks for the tip!!)

Woo-hoo!!!! School is cancelled! \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ Let's see. Where do I start? Maybe with this. :whistle1: Or this. :mdulcimer: Or this.Image

The sun finally came out, and suddenly the world is HUGELY photogenic!! Unfortunately, it's only 7 degrees.

I DO feel sorry for these little guys.

Although as you can see, they're trashing my roof. Ah, well. God's little creatures.

Look what Adrian did to my bird photograph!!

Image

He's so good at this. Susan said it took him maybe about 30 seconds to crop it for composition, saturate it, lighten the bird, saturate the bird colors, and sharpen the whole picture. :shock: As I told her, it took me a good thirty seconds just to read all the stuff he did.

Thanks, Adrian!! Great eye for photography.

Susan is very BAD! I asked her not to pass on the picture as I had only used it to show her one or two things. [-( Anyway, Connie is the artist.

I've actually contemplated doing so before, but it's weird enough as it is. :mrgreen:
