Lens Artists Challenge – Celebrating

This week Amy is hosting the challenge with the theme of Celebrating. Here are 3 photos I have selected.

Birthdays are the best! My grandson LOVES construction trucks. I think has has every kind that is used in the business. Here is a construction site birthday cake his mom made for him last year.

Halloween can be a fun time with all the costumes and yard d├ęcor. We visited one house this year that had all types of skeletons sitting about. Here is my hubby having a little fun with them. Gidget seems unimpressed.

I love taking photos at Christmas! It’s fun to depict this celebration in many ways.

I’m Back with the Living

I had the total knee replacement about 2 weeks ago and outside of a scary drop in blood pressure, I am back with the living. This surgery is not for the faint hearted. I thank all of you for your well wishes. I have begun the hard work of physical therapy to get the strength up and help diminish the pain. If you ever need this surgery, my advice is to go into it in the best shape possible. Fortunately, I was able to do certain exercises before surgery to keep some muscle tone.

I am posting a photo taken about one month before the surgery. We were hiking a trail on Skyline Drive, when we saw this buck a few feet off the trail.
