The Minnesota River.

This weekend I am in Mankato taking care of my mom's dog. Yesterday morning I decided to walk by the Minnesota River and take photos. While I was back by the river I saw this.

At first I saw one deer across the river. Then as I sat quietly and observed. I saw something running through the trees. I waited and eventually three more deer emerged from the woods.

I also got some great scenic photos.

A view of the river.

I love to photograph cone flowers. I wanted to try a different angle.

How the times have changed. My grandpa retired from here.

The Minnesota river ever-changing and never changing. It changes as the climate changes. It remains the same as a constant, always there. If you would like to see all of the photos I took at the Minnesota River, click on this link: More Photos!

Don't Mess with Texas

Today I was picking up our bedroom and came across a big blue Styrofoam hat that I bought Steve when we were in San Antonio last fall.

I got excited because I thought the Vikings were playing Texas tonight for the preseason game. I wanted to weat it to watch the game with my friend Esther tonight. I ran into the spare bedroom where Steve was studying while wearing the hat.

After ignoring the hat for 10 months,
it's been in our room longer than we've had the dogs, Skippy decided it was evil. We got a video of him and his reaction to the hat.

Steve then put on the hat to see if it was just me. It wasn't.

Steve went in the hall way and hid. When he came out, Skippy ran down the steps so fast, he practically slip down on his belly. He kept coming up the steps. When he saw Steve he would run. Skippy goes into play mode with the hat. He runs away and then comes back for more. You can see how his tail is wagging in play mode and his face looks like it is smiling.

I have started creating blank cards with my photos. I will be selling them locally.

The bottom color of the card can be ash, light green, or, raisin. As seen above. Just let me know. :-) I have many more to chose from.

Contact me if you are interested in purchasing any of my cards.

Old Dodge Ball Vidoes.

When I worked at the salon we entered a dodge ball competion. We did not anticipate that every other team would consist of men! We were the only female team. Watch these videos for a good laugh!

The rule was not to cross the blue line. I am the one in the orange shorts. I am not very good at following the rules!!

This time we went up to compete and it was not our turn to play!!!

The final game.
