Dreams of Beaches Past

Spring Break for both Calhoun Community College and the University of Alabama Huntsville, the two institutions of higher learning that our kids attend, began today. Since we made no travel plans, do not usually trek off to the student infested beaches during spring break, and I find myself stuck in weather-related doldrums, I thought I would post a few photos of times spent in warmer, sunnier places. (As always, click to enlarge or view full frame--maybe one of these days I'll get the size right)

Hmm. I think I was in this one's favorite spot.

Totally relaxing

They're talking about me.

 Wish I was there. Definitely.

Odds and Ends

Working with the iPhone app again to try to get something posted. No way to know how this will turn out.

Here are some old and new photos I thought I'd share. I tried resizing so that the photos would fit into the blog margins, but some didn't work, so click when necessary for full photo.

Top to bottom: Number 2 Son clowning in gift shop at Ruby Falls. Daughter painting in friend's workshop. Spindle and yarns. Curly locks from an angora goat. Pants in daughter's chair being mesmerized by something. Great blue heron fishing/wishing at Ditto Landing.  Sunset photo taken by Number 2 Son.  A bag of Pants. Rabbits a la Pink Floyd sent to me by Number 2 Son, don't know the source.
