Messing around with the tripod. Horrifyingly, for several minutes I blanked on how to operate the self timer. Let us recognize the danger here…
Including: William’s retirement party, Welcome to ElAey with stops at trendy Melrose and the Promenade, a lot of Sandy and Nancy, more people pix, Century City, and More!
Windy has Alan’s daughter here from Texas for several days and they have been on a whirlwind tour of Southern California. I played tour-guide Sunday afternoon. First we did a stroll down Rodeo Drive and then I took them to Melrose, for a change of pace.
These guys are awfully smiley face themselves considering the show they were enjoying – next picture…
It’s so hard to say without equivocation how my mother is doing. In one respect she is doing fine – she isn’t in pain, she can get around with help, she can be amused and is loving to her family and friends.
On the other hand her memory is so erratic you can’t really have a conversation – just go with her flow. And she can’t be left alone at all even for one minute. She has fallen a few times recently (nothing broke, thankfully) and if you turn your back you can find her out the door or rifling through drawers looking for she doesn’t know what, or maybe calling Saudi Arabia.
Check out that adorable pixie haircut!
From the plaza of my building. The second the shutter snapped on this pic the lobby security guy burst out the doors to tell me ‘NO no pictures!’. Fine. Ha! I got it already.
That’s real fog. I wish the tree was higher in the frame, up by the corner, but, since ‘NO no Pictures!’ I didn’t have a chance to work on it. It’ll probably end up gone.
I didn’t take this picture. Some guy at the restaurant did. You’d think a camera as perfect as the d100 would be incapable of such a shot. Except that I had it set for ‘fill flash’ and so it is my fault and the guy And the camera are innocent.
I cut myself out of it.
And I can do that because it’s my website, yes – although Bill’s coat does look plenty dang FunKeY – I might put myself back in. We’ll see. You guys all look cute though, festive actually despite the fill-flashed-foto and the funky coat.
This is the only picture from a long and pleasant Saturday. Windy slept over on Friday night and on Saturday first off, we went shopping. We bought cool shorts and funky shirts at the Salvation Army. Then we went up to Chico’s for some more traditional wear. So far so good.
Then we were just going to stroll around Montana for a while. We bought coffee. We sat outside Starbucks to enjoy our coffee. That’s where these birds come in. You can just guess from there, but suffice to say it was a good thing we had some new shirts.
Angela came with us to see the very wonderful Pieces of April. We ate over at D&A’s and were in bed by 10.
