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.

More Gooses

The population is growing. But aren't the puppies so cute? The second one, of the two goslings, has an oil painting effect applied to it since the picture itself was just so-so. I think that saves an otherwise throw-away photo.

Lily Pad

Thought it looked nice with the rain drops and cherry blossoms on it.

Cinco de Mayo

Today marks five years for me as a non-smoker. Cravings are gone with the exception of some occasional weak ones.
I still miss smoking but I will probably never start again. I have a good incentive not to.
I figured out the reason I still like the smell of cigarettes: I always did...even as a child I loved the smell of them. I do get grossed out by the residual smell on clothing etc., but not the smoke itself.

Day ??? - May 3

I lost count of the days again (123 ~ed). I know before, I was a day off from Bethany's count - not sure why that was but I'm pretty sure mine was correct. I think what happened is she counted the days from the first day and I counted all the days including the first. What do you think, Beth?
