Day 90 - July 25, 2011 - There are Back...Sort of

Image
The Cicadas visited us back in May...stayed for weeks and they let you know they were around with the loud noises they made.....I mean LOUD! There thousands upon thousands of them. That batch were known as the Periodic Cicadas. Coming out every 13 to 17 years.
But now we have been visited by the Annual Cicadas. Not many have appeared but these bad boys come once a year. They are fatter, don't have the orange eyes and the wings appear to be longer. But after weeks of the noise we put up with, I was surprised when I heard these guys. I thought maybe they were really late bloomers! The internet helped with my learning about the differences.

Day 89 - July 24, 2011 - Center Hill Dam

Image
I was kidnapped yesterday by Brian to go for a ride. We had lunch and took off to Center Hill Dam in DeKalb County. Nice beautiful ride and the dam area is so pretty.
This is off the the side of the damn, caught this view as I stood on the road over the dam.
There is water that apparently leaks out around the dam and comes out in caves along the bank. This is all the water that was flushing out. Isn't that such a pretty view. another shot of that view. Thanks for stopping in,

Day 87 - July 22, 2011 - Hungry!

Image
While at the lake the other day off the side of the dock my sis in law and I watched all these little fish swimming around. We had just finished dinner so she threw in a fry..... And before I could blink this big guy came up and grabbed that fry off the top of the water. He must have been there, right under the surface but a bit more down then the little ones. Next fry, produced about 5 of these big ole guys.

Day 86 - July 21, 2011 - Who is Who

Image
I love looking at old pics of my kids and now of my grand kids. I love to see how they all favor.
In this first pic titled Caleb ~ my grandson that is almost 11 yrs. old. The photo next to him is his little brother Braden. Braden is not yet a yr. old.
But look at that, how much they favor. Now compare the photo of this little boy... It is Cory, my son. Yes, the two boys favor Cory a lot but.....Cory is their uncle! I love it!
The little girl in this pic is Amber, she is my daughter and the mother of Caleb and Braden.
If I had a pic scanned to show you Amber as a baby you would see just how much Braden and Caleb favor her also.

Day 77- July 12, 2011 - Wall of Fame

My youngest brother Mark and his wife, Kim only have the one child....Holly, who recently turned 16. She has played in several plays and I honestly don't think there is anything you could give this girl that she would not do well.
Anyway, this is Holly's wall of FAME in their hallway. I love it cause most everyone of these pics I took. That makes me feel really good. Thanks for stopping in,
