Blog post number 2,222. “Do something with twos”, my daughter suggested. Hmmmm.
“A pair of shoes?” She nixed that. Boring.
I looked up things that come in twos and there’s a list of pairs for ESL students. Can be confusing. A pair of glasses is a single item. Don’t have any dice handy. But
Made me think of playing cards but all I have is an UNO game photo from October 4th. You can see my hand, too.
Lucky us! Happy Twelfth Birthday Anna Catherine!
One October morning before dawn, you made me and Marlene happy grandmothers.
Loved by your family and friends, your loving heart and kind spirit come out in your eyes.
Twelve years flew by! Love you lots, Anna. Happy Birthday. FF Ruthie

Boundaries. Some people have none.
The creator of the challenge Ben Huberman says,”This week, let’s explore the creative potential of limits, borders, and dividers of all types.”
Here are a few visible from the archives
Keeping in her lane at the swim meet.
Finding the turtle soup sign. Taken by Anna. I was driving.
Ninth Street Bridge. Allegheny River. The night before the Pickle Festival.
Forbes Field Wall where Pittsburgh Pirate Bill Mazeroski hit his famous homerun to win the 1960 World Series.
Maura’s unicorn horn was from the Clintonville Music and Art Festival.
Maura (6), Jack (8)and I spent an hour in Half Price Books on Lane Ave while we waited to meet the family for breakfast for dinner at Whole Foods after swim practice.
We bought a couple of books and Maura said she needed an alarm clock to get up in time for her daily 8 am dive practice. Sounded reasonable to me.
The one she chose makes the sound of hogs-
No buzzer. No bells, no sonar beep- PIGS!!
Turns out it would be my new Grandson’s birth date but we didn’t know that fact in the morning. Video
Cecilia, of thekitchensgarden do they sound authentic ?
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “On the Way.”
Thank you for the lovely bubbles in late day light, dear Granddaughter Anna.
You are a great guest blogger. I love how you see your world and capture it!
(remember the mannequin legs in the pickup truck?)
your Grandma, FF Ruthie
Columbus, Ohio. Holiday weekend with the family. St Patrick Church.
Easter Vigil Saturday evening. The first portion- the Lucernarium.
To photograph a religious ceremony or not. That was the question. Someone was firing off electronic flash.Ugh.
I was trying for minimal camera shake. Being unobtrusive. Limit myself to a few shots.
It was really dark. Just candlelight. And the light of the bonfire from which they lit the Paschal Candle.
After everyone processed into the church, I stayed back and photographed the lilies on the table with the bonfire in the background.
And Donald and Marlene, Erika’s parents were inside the church a bit of a blur.
A woman in front was a blur, too.
Granddaughter Anna coming into the pew. Then I put the camera away in my bag and zipped it so I wouldn’t try to capture the ephemeral smoke from the incense.
Seven readings and psalms and intermittent prayers after each reading, all the altar candles are lit, the lights come on and as the Gloria is sung, the church bells peal and the sanctus bells ring and ring and ring.
And that is just the beginning…..
