Catching Up

02-lookoutAccording to my fan club and recent comment spammers, I’m supposed to be blogging.

My #1 fan (aka my husband) says gentle things like: “I noticed you haven’t blogged recently.” …and… “You haven’t posted the pictures from our walk yet.”

The spammers are more entertaining. Their comments make very little sense, but they do make me laugh sometimes:

  • Thank you for this site and all information abounds. I find it very interesting and I recommend it to everyone! All the best. friendly .
  • Thank you for this great site, really variegated good and interesting ideas. Especially keep it up. Good luck cordially
  • I’m really proud to find you, your blog is really great! I like its interface, and I too loved the content too. Especially so continue!
  • Thank you for these interesting strong advice, it is great to come across articles as interesting as yours! I wish you health, longevity, success, happiness and peace of heart.
  • Congratulations on your site! Really, it’s great and as I saw in the first positions is true that sharing and site interface is really a boon for the work style. Really a big thank you!
  • Adorable item that I discovered by chance, and my greatest pleasure, congratulations!
  • I discovered your article. he is beautiful super bravo of you. I would return to see him.

I’m not sure I can live up to all that. Which is why I haven’t been blogging.

Not really. I think it’s just the mid-winter doldrums. Or something.

I have been trying to participate in a year-long photo challenge sponsored by Eternal Crown. I haven’t been keeping up with that very well, either, but I did take a few nice shots on the aforementioned walk that Lyle and I went on along the Platte River a couple of weeks ago.13-cominghomeThis is a sculpture that I had noticed soon after we moved here. I had been wanting to get a closer look, so one afternoon we went for a walk along the river there.  The sculpture is called Coming Home. I love the little boy on the back of the work horse.

While I was taking pictures, Lyle slipped off down the hill a bit and found a geocache. He used an app on his phone to see if there were any in the area… and voila!

13-geocacheIt worked out well for my photo challenge because I was supposed to be looking for monochromatic color. (Natural. Not with photo-editing.) Lyle happened to have on a camo shirt that day, and with the winter drabness of the foliage, it was just right.

I was also supposed to be looking for a pop of color in an otherwise monochromatic scene. 13-carOur “new” car fit the bill for that one. (Remember the “new car” saga? This is, theoretically, “The Wife’s Car.” I’ve driven it exactly once in the month we’ve had it. Told you there’s no such thing in our marriage.)

13-dogHere we have a “framed” photo of the sweet girl in the back seat.

And I’m still not caught up with the photo challenge. Our hostess has given us this week to catch up. I need to get on that.

Next time I’ll try to share “really variegated good and interesting ideas.”

    Your first line… haha!! LOVE your blog title. Big fan of adventure here. I’m interested in the photo challenge. Will have to check that out. I really enjoyed your photos and the snippet stories behind them. So glad we’ve connected. Seems we have similar interests. I have a new blog to follow!

    I’ve been lagging on the blog as well. Just life getting in the way as usual. I’m behind too, but I am keeping notes in the notebook you gave me so I’m always on the lookout for stuff! Wish you were going to LV in April…
