Shelagh - It is so neat you posting photos of your grandchildren,
they are both lovely and apparently having a ball in Croatia.
I've heard it's a very beautiful country.

the Hummingbirds are going crazy here at the moment, swooping
and diving over one's head at a very fast pace, I have no idea
how they are able to control their speed and never bump into
each other or anything else! :roll:

Lovely humming bird Patricia, good close up :)

Croatia very beautiful, by all accounts, family had a wonderful time, stayed in Rovinj, traditional and unspoilt, daughter Diane went on guided tour, said old parts of city are magnificent, just like Venice :)

What a lovely photo, I know Emelia had a wonderful time at Disneyland particularly
the "Dressing Up" part. Our Grandkids were over the moon with it! We were lucky enough
to be visiting the Grandchildren when a trip was planned for a visit to Disney.
I also had a great time myself!! :D

Beautiful, Patricia :D three little princesses surrounding Disney princess, what a picture, lovely to look back on when they're older :)
Have a few more princess pictures, not sure of their names, so many of them, guessing this one is Snow White :)

Shelagh - That certainly looks like an ideal place for skiing.
My youngest daughter & family usually go each year to
Lake Tahoe. I have seen winter photos of same but have
only visited in the summer.

Remember the movie "Build it & they will come!" well all I can say
is "Feed them what they like & they will come!" :D Haven't seen a
Yellow Finch in a couple of years and we bought one of those
socks filled with seed especially for Finches - here is the result!

Patricia, do you use Photobucket to post pics? They want to charge me "like a wounded bull". Tina :D

Thanks Ladies for your nice comments which are certainly appreciated! :D

Tina - I've been paying $25.00 per annum for the last several years to
Photobucket when they sent me a request for same as I thought with
being out of the country it was customary to charge me. Now I see
they have expanded into other areas as well as just the photos.

A girlfriend of mine (Joyce) flew in from Texas yesterday (Tuesday) and two
of us got together to take her to lunch. We talked and reminisced about
all the funny things that had happened to us over the years and then
we drove back to my house for dessert. It was such an enjoyable visit! :D

Elaine & Shelagh - Really appreciate your lovely comments - Many thanks! :D

Middle daughter, Janine & her hubby, Mark, recently had an outdoor fireplace
built and it has turned out to be quite a "Gathering" place after dinner,
especially now the cooler evenings have arrived............

That's a great idea, Patricia. Is that an American idea or did Janine come up with it?

Phil - I asked Janine regarding the Fireplace and she said she got the idea
from a link called:"Pinterest" Apparently it is now the "Vogue" to bring the
"Indoors" "Out" as much as possible. She said she added a few tweaks
like having a log storage also built in and a larger hearth.
Janine is somewhat of a free spirit and is always doing or up to something.
Her latest is - wait for it - "Goat Yoga!" I note she always accomplishes these
new ventures first and then tells me about them afterwards! :D :roll:
I told her to be sure to sanitize her Yoga Mat! :D
She is I must say Great Fun to be around!! :D

Janine is on the back row second in from the right as you look at the photo!

One never knows that visitors come and go around your home
during the night. Lew went out to pick up his newspaper in the
driveway earlier than usual this morning and upon seeing the
sight below went as quietly as he could back into the house for
his camera: :D
