  1. Topazia, thank you for your comment. I appreciate hearing this. The terrific news is that you are still working. Is your husband working? Hopefully, he is. MacKenzie must look forward to accomplishing art with her mother every evening. I always remember doing art with my mother. It was always such a special time. Let me see what other photographs I can post. I have been playing with flowers and food these past weeks. Some photographs are good, some are not so good. It took me about seventy photographs for me to be happy about the result. The good news, it passes quite a bit of time.
  2. HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY - KAT -!!! We all would like to wish you a very happy belated birthday. Hopefully, your celebration of your birth, was extra special and full of happiness and love. May you have many, many more to come.
  3. Yesterday was - Kat's - birthday. Every single day this month, I was thinking that I needed to remember to wish her a happy birthday, even up to the very night prior. Well, here I am a day late. I totally missed her special day. Happy Belated Birthday - Kat -.
  4. A sunrise for everyone. It is a panorama. I hope that you enjoy it.
  5. Here is a cactus flower. It blooms for one day only.
  6. The COVID-19 virus has certainly changed our lives. The big question is how is everyone coping? One fact to consider, Anne Frank was in a four hundred fifty square foot attic, not able to make a sound, for over two years. She never left the attic for over two years. We can make it through this.
  7. CONGRATULATIONS!!! You obviously are working hard and your managers noticed. I will be right back with more images.
  8. Yes, I agree. Great news. How are you continuing to do during this very different period of our lives? How is work? Are you still as busy? Not much to report here. Things are still the same. I am taking quite a number of indoor images. For example, I am playing with my food, LOL!!! Exactly what you teach MacKenzie not to do. Today I am going to play with oil and water. We will see how that turns out. Perhaps this will be one photographic adventure that will be best conducted outdoors. LOL!!!
  9. Topazia!!! Thank you for the update. Thank goodness you are healthy and working. I am pleased that you are happy with your job. Twenty thousand steps a day?!?!?!? You must sleep very well at night. Only one cold??? That is fantastic! Whatever you are doing, keep it up! It is so hard to see young children not be able to go outside and then they are too young to understand why not. How old is MacKenzie now? It seems like only yesterday that she was born. The stress of worrying about not catching this virus, can wear down your immune system. Please follow the guidelines of washing your hands with soap and water for at least twenty seconds, do not touch your face with your hands, and cover your face with a tissue or your sleeve when you cough or sneeze. These guidelines should help you stay safe throughout your life. i will be back in a little while to finish this conversation.
  10. How is everyone doing during this stressful time? What are you doing to get through this stressful time? I have decided to take at least ten photographs, everyday. The subject does not matter. It is just the process that matters. I have taken some very strange images in the last week, rocks, roadside litter, bugs, anything that catches my eye. I will start posting images that I think you might enjoy. Would everyone please stay safe during this time of uncertainty? Practice at least two metres/six feet between other people, use a tissue or your sleeve when you cough or sneeze, wash your hands for at least twenty seconds and do not touch your face with your hands. Take care and be well. Horatio
  11. WOW!!! Incredible. Ha, ha, ha! Some people never "find themselves". Unfortunately, money is a necessity to have a roof over your head, food on the table and do some of those things you like to do, such as buy clothes and have dinner out. I love Amsterdam. You will absolutely love living there. Then, I will come over and visit you. A year off. That is wonderful to have some time to think about what you would like to do. You will be working for a very, very long time, so enjoy your life whilst you are young. You are well qualified, so you will find a job fast. I am certain that you will save the money that you are planning on. Life is terrific. We just finished a move from Utah to Nevada. I am still playing with my camera, taking photographs of anything and everything. Ninety-nine percent are junk, but in that last one percent, I am fortunate to find one I like. Are you still taking photographs? You really have a very good eye and I hope that you continue with your photography. I am enjoying many new hobbies. Jewellery making and rock hounding for the rocks that I use for my jewellery. I will be back.
  12. LOL!!! This sounds so hard to accomplish. I applaud you for your dedication to making this work.
  13. Topazia, this is outstanding reading. I am so excited for you to finish this story. It is really, really terrific reading!!! I love the way you write.
  14. Incredible!!! What a dramatic improvement! You really have excelled at art! Fantastic! I particularly like the way you have used light and shadows. Technology, has also come a long way in fifteen years.
  15. I need to post a photograph that I took, of the Iron Maiden Boeing 747. What a fantastic paint job. I felt so fortunate to be at the ramp at the same time as their airplane. They were doing a concert and parked right next to our ramp.
  16. Unfortunately, I missed wishing everyone a Happy Valentine's Day. I was accomplishing this marathon drive from the Florida Keys to Utah, to Las Vegas and then back to Utah. I was attempting to take care of some details in Florida before heading back to Utah. I drove the twenty-seven hundred miles, in less than forty-six hours. It was drive, stop for gas, drive, stop for more gas, drive, stop for even more gas, until I needed to get a little sleep in the car, and repeat. The very first thing I did when I arrived home, was to take a long, hot shower. We are making a move from Utah to Nevada by the end of the month, so I hope to put an end to my cross-country driving career very shortly.
  17. WOW!!! Lexxscrapham, I am so sorry to have missed you. What are you doing with yourself these days? What is happening in your life. I really would like to hear from you!
  18. TBFOF!!! WOW!!! I am so sad that I missed being here when you and Lexxscrapham were here. How are you? How is life treating you? What are you doing? Please, fill me in!
  19. And how is the potty training going? Terrific I hope. When we first met, it never occurred to me that we would be conversing about potty training your daughter. Yet, here we are. When you say you are 'doubling down' on the potty training, I am at a loss as to what you mean. I would think that the sticker chart with the weekly goal rewards would be a fantastic way to achieve your goal. That is so creative on your part. What else are you doing, or did I miss something? Thank you for your comment. I went to the beach and was rewarded for my efforts! I happy you enjoyed it.
  20. Topazia, the good news is that your calendar will continue to get heavier and heavier. I just wanted to give you something to look forward to. How is your art progressing? You really have a considerable amount of talent and I hope that you can make money with your art. There is not much going on here. I am taking lots and lots of photographs and taking a couple of courses at the local university. Other than that, I am goofing off.
  21. I was just wondering how everyone's new year is going? I was in Death Valley right after the first of the year and the weather was wonderful with gorgeous sunrises and sunsets.
  22. Oh my goodness, I cannot believe that it is 2020!!! The holidays are over and we are starting a new decade.
