Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Strike a Pose

I ask this Granddaughter to strike a pose for me.  She did a great job.  I took this on Tuesday and on Thursday she fell and broke her collar bone.  She is not smiling as much but is doing fine.  I love her smile and attitude.


These are from my past.  The foot wear is over 40 years old and I can still wear them.  They are very comfortable.  The hat is the same age and they go well together as a set.


One of my hobby is working in wood.  The top car was made for my father 30 odd years ago.  When he passed I retrieved it for my kids.  The lower picture is of a cradle that I made for my daughter.  I have made 4 of these.  It takes over 60 hours to build.  A labor of love that will last a life time or two.  The cradle can be rocked on the stand or it can be removed and rocked on the floor.


The snow in the spring has a shine.  We took these shiny picture on our trip this last week.  The bottom one is in the other  direction of the sun shinning on the snow on the top of the mountain.  I love this shot of the grain stubble in the foreground and the mountain in the back.

Color Me Green

This is a picture from last summer.  The snow is not green and I would like to see this area again covered in green.  High mountain meadow in late spring from the air as you can see.
