Early Sunday morning. 

Could be a good one for the What’s Inside? –52 in 2016 Challenge 

Saying goodbye to my daughter and grandson and Penny the golden doodle.

Headed back to the Burgh. 

Temps up to 63,  I noticed on the car thermometer reading. Felt like a Spring day.

Baby Charlie Watches Grandpa Chuck’s Birthday Candle Blow Out

Firsts.   When you’re only four months old there are so many “firsts” to experience.

This was the first time Charlie saw birthday candles being extinguished.

Everyone sang Happy Birthday.

Little Dog, Big Dog-Napping

Grandson Michael (10) is the guest blogger today. 

He photographed Josie (puppy) and Henry the Airedales. 

I like he got down on their eye level. 

I found it tonight on my phone and remembered he took it Saturday night. 

  


Weekly Photo Challenge: Boundaries

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

Double Digits Today! Happy Birthday Michael

Michael Joseph is 10!

Likes LEGO®, Star Wars, Tin Tin, chess, swim team, dogs (especially Airedales). He’s kind, loving and creative.  He likes to laugh and make others laugh. He has a serious side.  I remember the day he was born in Florida, a decade ago. He’s a Gators fan.

Michael and Murphy were the first posted photo on the blog 6 years ago.

New Family Handshake

You know those photo greeting cards with the tiny hand in the big hand?

The touching closeups?

I was going for a similar feel with the new parents and grandson Charlie who was a week and a day.

I’d never seen one before today.

A unique baby gift arrived in today’s mail from my dear friend J.

Food Pusher 2The flowers from last Saturday’s wedding with the blue blossoms, still look lovely.


Grateful for MedFlight Air Ambulances

A fellow blogger writes about things she’s grateful for and has inspired me to post this Med Flight helicopter.

Here is her latest gratitude post about a gift of flowers to the teacher- thank you Colline.

Friday when I left the hospital after visiting my new grandson,  there was a helicopter outside on the pad ready for take off. They’d brought a patient in need of care to Riverside Hospital in Columbus OH.

MedFlight does amazing work, “critical care transport”– getting people to advanced medical treatment in a timely manner with the latest technology.

As I was exiting the parking lot, I saw my son Mark photographing the helicopter.  He has always loved them since he was little.

I pulled over to the curb and photographed the rising bird and Mark, fascinated as if he were still seven, photographing the ascending helicopter. He had told me on the way to our cars, “they’re not supposed to be able to fly, you know.”

But fly they do-
