A blog, written with humor and heart, that shares nature photography and daily life observations. Grab a cup of coffee, put your feet up and take a few quiet moments to enjoy the wondrous images that Mother Nature gifts us with every single day! (And every once in a while, to enjoy no images and to just giggle).

RE-REVISED: Here they Are: September 2011's FREE PHOTO CONTEST Entries: Theme: SHADOWS
Well, folks...this has been an EXPERIENCE!!!
My main computer crashed during the month of September.
Then, the week that I posted these entries, my laptop also crashed.
I THOUGHT I retrieved all of the contest e-mails that came in over the month enough
to continue with this contest without problems.
Boy, was I wrong.
I learned today that I also forgot two MORE entrants. Thank goodness they let me know.
Thank goodness I am now so paranoid that I didn't send any to my Judges yet.
Thank goodness that I know they will forgive me, because photographers are wonderful.
Thank goodness my readers will also forgive me
because you all are the BEST!!
HUGE apologies to Paz and to Arti (two more entrants I forgot to include).
On the sunny side, that explains why I thought we had "so few entries" before.
It was because their e-mails containing their entries were LOST.
So, let's start over, cross our fingers, and HOPE that no one else contacts me to say I have also neglected to
put their entry in.
I will close the contest on this coming Friday, officially.
And then send all of them this weekend to the Judges (who have no idea I screwed up this badly, thank goodness!!)
And, let's pray to the Computer GODS that nothing crashes this bad again to cause this ruckus!!
I am so sorry to all of you for this inconvenience.
I retired in June 2008 and started my blog in November 2008. I worked at several jobs as a Registered Nurse prior to retirement. I LOVE being retired! Blogging has offered me a whole new venue to start writing again and to share new hobbies such as gardening, birdwatching and sharing my nature photography. If you like my blog, PLEASE click on "follow this blog". Having a lot of followers reading my blog gives me incentive to continue to do photography and to continue to write. I also LOVE comments, so I encourage you to leave me a comment after you read my posts. Thanks everyone, for taking the time to read me!!
