The case of the disappearing photos.
It used to happen from time to time - now it's happening a lot more often. After posting my photos in here which I have hosted for years on Fotki dot com, the urls change causing my blog to have many blank placeholders.
This is not meant to be a rant - just letting people know why there are so many missing photos.
Unfortunately, I can't take the time to keep fixing the links.
Enjoy what's left. Thank you.

Valentine's Day (*yuck*) - Birthday Celebration - 2/14

Sally (Allyson's sister), visiting from Alabama, asked me to attend the birthday celebration of her niece with her (She was killed along with her boyfriend, in a car accident. She would have been 19). It was very nice and we had a nice time.
Sally's son was very tired so I gave them a ride back to the house they were staying at. He perked up a little when I mentioned the town hall, as we were driving by it, has been investigated by paranormal investigators. He woke up completely when I told him that I'm a paranormal investigator too.
At the party, each table had a different photo of Keri on it. This is a picture of the display at our table.

Friday The 13th

OK...not a pic by me...and probably not taken today (2/13) but since I had nothing and didn't want a special day such as this - Friday the 13th - to go un-noted, I found the next best thing. Happy FT13th e-1!

Moi ~ 02-12-2009

Well, they say in one of the articles about P-365, to once in awhile put a pic of yourself. Since I'm falling behind again I figured I could do that now. So I did.

After the tree removal... Feb 10

So...big changes here, now that the wilderness has been tamed. Big changes.

I feel like I live in a fishbowl when I'm out there now. Lot's of shrubbery is in order, new trees, fences, a vegetable garden, a shed...maybe a pool. That would be sweet.

Here's the album at my Fotki of all the pics I took (well, most of them) - click the picture to see the "before" version posted on Feb 7 (or just scroll down to Feb. 7). I took some video too but I haven't done anything with it yet.

Flying Trees and a Monkey Man - 02092009

Today the backyard was full of flying trees and a "monkey man". That's what I call the guy that hitched a ride on the crane from tree to tree. He'd cut the top half off and the crane would put it down for the crew waiting on the ground, while he waited on the decapitated tree for the crane to come back...then attach himself and "fly" off to another tree or sometimes to take another section.
Well, I had to go to work before they were finished so when I get some more pics in the morning I'll create an album and post a slideshow or something. I got a few video clips too. It's dark out but it looks like they didn't finish...have to see when the u=sun comes up.
It's very sad to see all those trees gone, but it was fascinating to watch.

Tree Removal...

or How To Turn Your Backyard Into A Parking Lot.
Tomorrow AM I will be awakened by the sound of chainsaws and probably trees crashing to the ground. They'll probably be here before I'm awake so I'll try to get pictures as soon as I AM awake.
Could not start the Blazer, so it's in a very bad spot (tried pushing it before and it won't budge). I hope they're not worried about scratching it.
I hope they'll be careful of my water gardens.
Well...goodnight.

Goin' Round and Round... 2-08-2009

Wind Power at Mass Maritime Academy by the Cape Cod Canal. I turned around from the moon shot and took this one.

We Like The Moon... February the 8th

Must keep trying. This is the best moon photo I got today, actually the best I've ever gotten I think. But still LOTS of room for improvement. I'll keep shooting for many moons to come.
