Someone’s being very clever

A few nice Lice images I found:

If you have to make your way past "falling ice" signs in April, at least they should make you smile. The one in back, not as distinctly, warns of falling lice.

There are at least two dozen photos of "caution, falling mice" signs on Flickr, but I figure my mom hasn’t seen one before. Hi, Mom!

My favorite flickr photo you find when you search for "falling mice" is this one.

Trudy

This is little Trudy, a French bulldog, I met at the veterinary surgery one day.  Like many Frenchies she seems to have a permanently worried expression but in fact she was probably thinking about going in to see the vet! Trudy is 3 years old and lives in Monaco. Such an adorable breed. They are all clowns!

Slowly But Surely

I’m starting to use Photoshop more and more.  Don’t get me wrong, I still like Lightroom, but even with it’s new cloning/healing tool, it still doesn’t hold a candle to Photoshop’s and I often want to get rid of something in my photos.  Lately it’s been the staining under the puppies’ eyes and Photoshop does a much better job.  It’s a pain to transfer them in there, but worth it in the end.

I’m also finding I need to use it for my 52 Weeks challenges and am slowly learning more and more “tricks” each week.  This week’s challenge was symmetry so I ended up cloning Coulee and flipping her around to create a more symmetrical image.  I chose not to make the background symmetrical as I found it too distracting. I wanted it to look a little more “realistic”… that she’d actually found her doppelgänger and was having a game of tug with her.

I thought her play bowing to herself was also cute.  She’s actually bowing to Marlin who helped me out with the tug.

This was a cool little wall that had this half circle repeating along it, that I photographed as a backup plan, (I didn’t know if I would be able to get the tugging thing to work) but decided I liked the closer view better.

the East Bay SPCA average spay/neuter cost is half…

the East Bay SPCA average spay/neuter cost is half as much ($ 125 for dogs/$ 60 for cats), and low-income pet owners qualify for an even lower rate of half that with income and residency verification. Pit bulls, which are the dogs in every single one of the photos, are spayed/neutered for free by the East Bay SPCA. You don't have to get your pet from them to have your pet spayed by them – we had our formally feral cat spayed there.

A Promise Kept by Robin Lee Hatcher {Book Review}

A Promise Kept by Robin Lee Hatcher My rating: 5 of 5 stars Set in two different time frames, but with the common bridge of doubt, pain, finding strength and rediscovering God, “A Promise Kept” by Robin Lee Hatcher was an eloquently written story about two different women in different times, yet facing similar issues…
