No snow on the ground this morning but still cold at 33F when I woke up around 4. A canopy of stars told me it was going to be a sunny start to the morning, & with no wind, we had a good chance at a better weather day. But, it didn’t last……….
AUNT JEAN CHECKS OUT THE MORNINGS BLOG, KELLY WORKS ON A LOAD OF TOAST & PHEEBS IS UPSIDE DOWN ON THE FLOOR
AND JEAN TAKES A PHOTO OF KELLY GIVING AL A MUCH NEEDED HAIRCUT
With today’s HD technology & high resolution TV’s, I really enjoy watching those full featured animation movies. Polar Express & Hugo come to mind. Pheebs & I watched ‘Despicable Me’ Saturday night & enjoyed it. Truly amazing what animators & the wonderful world if digital imagination can do these days. Takes me back to the time in the 50’s when my Mother bought a brand spanking new 24 inch Westinghouse B&W television. It was cutting age stuff at the time & as a kid, I felt I was standing at the edge of the Universe. Been awhile since those days, but sometimes while watching these animations in HD, I am almost back, standing at the edge there again.
A BRISK DESERT WALK UNDER SUNNY BUT COLD SKIES AS A HAWK & BUNNY KEEP A WARY EYE ON US

PHEEBS KEEPS A CLOSE EYE ON PASSING BUNNY OUTSIDE THE SUNSEEKER
Karen & Steve from THIS COUNTRY IS OUR BIG BACKYARD have been working hard these past bunch of months on renovating an older house they recently purchased. Two very talented people here & it’s always a learning experience to see what great alterations they are making to either their Safari Motorhome or recently acquired house.
ALWAYS INTERESTING THINGS TO SEE IN THE DESERT
We did manage a sunny morning walk in the desert but an icy wind later picked UP & kept us indoors except for an hours Jeep ride around the neighborhood. Showed Aunt Jean 2 cemeteries at the end of Ghost Town Road & did manage a short walk in the old Pioneer one. Toured around Congress & then on down to North Ranch for a drive through. Went by MIKE'S PLACE expecting to maybe see him outside in his Bermuda shorts, but with the colder temperatures I figured he was probably staying inside pretty close to his gun powder today.
A SHORT WALK IN THE OLD CONGRESS PIONEER CEMETERY
Rest of the day was uneventful. Reading Cheyrl Ann’s post from DEEP CANYON a few days ago I left her a comment & decided to post that comment here as well…….'Editing photos to me is as much fun as taking the actual photograph itself. Lighting conditions are not always the best in the field & composition can be a challenge in many locations, but getting those same photos into a editing program is like a second chance to photograph the same subject all over again. Lighting problems can be corrected, composition re-positioned etc. Inaccurate colors can be dealt with & contrast problems solved. Half the fun of photography is in the photo editing process & at the end of each day I always enjoy uploading my photos into my PICASA photo editing program to see what little treasures I may have captured. And, it's always a challenge, no matter what the photo problem is, to solve & trouble shoot each & every photo to have the photos come out as natural looking as possible. Some days, using all 4 cameras, I may very well have over a hundred photos to edit & organize. But, like so many hobbies, the key is loving what you are doing....and that is the key’:))
LOOK JEAN, A FLYING CHICKEN………….OMG!!

GROANER’S CORNER:(( In Africa, some of the native tribes have a custom of beating the ground with clubs and uttering spine chilling cries. Anthropologists call this a form of primitive self-expression.....
In America we call it golf.
