Let's talk about the pleasures and puzzles of the smaller mystery--mystery novels and other fiction--and the bigger one--life.
It's not my birthday yet, but I got my birthday camera! I've taken a few shots and even figured out how to download to my computer and put photos on this blog! OH, dear, the quality of what you see on here is about to go downhill really fast, lol. But I promise Andif will be the REAL photographer. I will be the pesky amateur who just *has* to show you her latest cute cat photo. Or flower. Or the new crock pot, or whatever.Oh boy!Thanks, you guys, who helped me choose.
Happy new camera Nancy! I can't wait to see what you take and I'll be glad to share Official Photographer honors with you -- especially if it makes mine look better. :DLisa, I'm looking forward to seeing what your students wrote. And if you do more poetry, there is a great poetry anthology for kids called "Reflections on a Gift of Watermelon Pickle" that you might want to take a look at for more inspiration.Morning everyone.
I'm waiting for someone to shake the snow globe, looking for the waving plume of a dog tail. Reminds me of sculpted unfired clay.Nancy, New camera--Fun, Fun, Fun. It is a challenge to follow Andi and Olivia. Cute cat photos are a favorite of mine though. BeBo and the pack will have to share the limelight now.Morning Andif--Thanks for the poetry suggestions. Yesterday was one of those days that reminds me why I teach. Mine are a reluctant bunch. So to have participation, even enthusiasm is so much fun. To teach, you have to be part performer, part conductor. I have a large proportion of class clowns and drama kings/queens so keeping all those personalities positively focused can be a challenge. When it all comes together--euphoria.Terrific Thursday for All.
Happy photo taking, Nancy! We amateurs can stick together. :)The photo is amazing - looks to me like waves, pounding furiously against the rocks, only to be frozen by a spell. (can you tell I've been listening to Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince?)I'm trying to come up with interesting panel questions for Bouchercon. I'm moderating a great group of folks and want to make sure I live up to the great title.WEASELS RIPPED MY FLESH (Frank Zappa) Mixing mystery and horror. Maria Lima(M), Mario Acevedo, Heather Graham, Kat Richardson, F. Paul Wilson(all the panel titles are song titles - pretty fun, huh?)
It DOES look like waves! I look at it and think brrrrrrr... but it's gorgeous, and I wish I was there looking at it. Congrats on the pre-BD present, Nancy! Can't wait to see your pictures - of whatever you choose to shoot. Like your birthday cake?? :-)Good luck with students and panels and everything else you tackle today, folks. You know what I'll be doing (see yesterday's post).Happy almost-Friday!
Looking forward to seeing your pix, Nancy!Working at home today, hooray. I have to dial into a spec review at 1, meh.The photo makes me think of… how cool it got overnight, and that fall is on the way.
As Rabbit said, "Bizy backson."
This photo makes me think of home.
Cool, I look forward to seeing more local pix of Kansas. Happy almost Friday. :-D(shhh, who's in charge of the surprise party for Nancy's birthday tomorrow? It's also a late celebration of the 1 year anniversary of this blog. What's the appropriate gift for one year anniversaries?)
I heard that. :)
My, what good ears you have!lolDarn, there goes the surprise.
