These white Orchids do not have a spot on them. They are nearly perfect just like a small child in our eyes. It took 3 days for the light to be right for this photo (at lest in my eyes). Just a bit more of what Nature has for us to enjoy.
I am going crazy. Baseball opening day is still 2 weeks away. I have tweaked my Fantasy team. I have bought tickets for several games. I am watching and listening to the pre-season games but I am still left a bit empty. It is going to be a very, very long 2 weeks.
I am usually up on this date, but I think the snow we had distracted me. March 14th (3.14) is PI day every year. I celebrate with my own version of Pie! Last year it was banana cream. But it is traditionally...PUMPKIN! But, I don't always celebrate my birthday on the exact date, so...I am forgoi...
It is no secret that I spent some time at Disney World last week. It was not uncommon to see little fender benders while there. The heavy stop and go traffic made for easy bumper to bumper kisses. One of the standing jokes we had was... A young blonde was entering the gates a Disney and the traf...

I am in no way even close to taking Professional photo's, but I don't always have the time to practice either. The digital age has helped a lot also in cost. Just keep snapping photo's and delete what does not work. Although this is not a great photo, it was the best of 12 photo's and 6 setting...
Soft water fishing of course. Time to dig out the ol' rod and reels and repair. Each reel needs new line. More trophy fish are lost because of someone being to cheap to spend $5-$10 for new line although they spent over $100 for the rod and real. It is the line that brings in your catch. Reels ...
