    We've had plenty of birds, especially barn swallows, dive bomb our cats.
    I've seen my cats bird watching too. And, I've been totally grossed out by them crunching down a small morsel.

    17. Your supposed to be getting on with your work and I am supposed to be mowering (funny we just say mowing, but you guys like words bigger and better!) the lawn.
      Must "project(or)" myself to getting on with the lawn! . . . . . . but keep coming back to see if you have managed to "pixel" something different! . . . . . and there is always something else in "print" from you ROFL

      Delete
    18. We don't say mowering...I just made that up to go with hoovering. (which we don't say either!)
      haha. OK...off to work! later.....must focus! haha.

      Delete
    19. It's raining!! lol . . . . . . rained off in garden! Tyoical Brit weather!
      So you don't say hoovering or mowering (lol). I see! I expect it's vacuuming. Missed the "focal point" about mowering! lol

    21. I'll make a tent and wrap some film around my tripod, like a wigwam! . . . . then try to "snap" out of it!

    2. A friend of mine had that problem too, but he was able to get a cable cord that solved the issue. Maybe you can for yours too?

      Delete
    3. hmm...that's interesting. I even tried to find online if that was possible and only got people complaining that dslr's couldn't charge from your laptop. They just have a battery. I'll look again, because it would be soooo convenient! haha. Thanks....

  15. Betsy, your photography is getting to be fantastic, I always thought you took good photos, but these two are great. Are you using some of the mad skills you are learning in the photography class? Just to get in on the previous discussion, I love your new header, too! It is just so endearing.

  19. That phrase "Laugh out loud" must be one of the most overused words in the English language, and so often it is an exaggeration. But here I was sat at my computer, with the fog and cold outside, feeling a bit fed up as I have to drive half way across the country later today (not as challenging prospect in the UK as in the USA) and I genuinely did laugh out lout at seeing your photos.
