Just another great day
………. and even a real smile to boot !!!! Strokes are a funny thing. I have asked Bob on numerous occasions to smile for a photo and the connection between voluntary and an involuntary smile is very confusing and difficult.
Today, I was bound and determined to get a grin out of him before I put the camera away….Finally, although I was forced to make a few off color comments that I dare not repeat, and now he appears to be crying…. Go figure.
We took a short drive this morning around the North side of Lake Lavon in search of other COE parks for the future. Unfortunately, most are seasonal and are not open until April 1 at which time we will have moved on. The park we are in is quite nice complete with full hook-ups but amongst the sounds of the birds, there is some competition …..
We are thankful the train doesn’t blow it’s whistle, otherwise someone would have to scrape us off the ceiling of the coach.
The sudden warm up of temperatures along with heavy rains last week has thrown the area into full bloom.
The new growth on this tree was beautiful with the bluebonnets in the background…I am still playing with features and maybe next year at this time the pictures will show exactly what I am seeing through the eyepiece.
I want to thank everybody that has offered their photography suggestions to this old grey mare. You have given me hope and encouragement in knowing I can shoot, adjust, tweak, or delete and keep on shooting. Who says we are too old to learn new things……I CAN DO THIS.
Thanks for checking up on us.
