Dogs on Thursday



So much to post and not enough time...let's see what I can get done.


This past weekend Rudy's Best Friend was in town, the ENTIRE weekend was spent playing and running.


And when Milo went home -- Rudy passed out!


I'm a regular reader of Marie's blog down in Boone, NC...one of my most favorite places to go...She's a fantastic photographer and just about every photo she posts I know where she's standing when she takes it. She posted a week or so ago about a photographic technique that totally consumed me, Ttv--Through The Viewfinder--I HAD to give it a try...and let me tell you I've had fun. I won a Duaflex on Ebay for $8.00--made the prototype "contraption"--perfected it and now I'm ready to make the final one. I did manage to get a few pictures with it...of course Rudy had to get in on the action.
I love the effect this gives on the images, of course there's a major learning curve...sort of like rubbing your tummy and patting your head at the same time. You have to keep in mind everything is in reverse!



Tonight is Opening night for our Minor League baseball team....tickets--check; knitting--check; blanket/coat/gloves/coat--check (what the heck happened to Springtime?) I'M READY!!!

Oh...and I upped my Gallop 4 the Greenways goal again! Thanks again and again for all those who've contributed! I'm really excited about this 5K run!

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!

What a neat, new toy. And if it leads to more Rudy photos, all the better.

Enjoy the game and stay warm!

We had season tickets to our Minor League team in Southern Wisconsin for years. IMG, the fun we had!!! So much better than spending the big bucks on the Major Leagues. Love the Rudy pictures and your new technique.

It looks like they had a great time together. Isn't it nice to have a tired, happy pup in the house?

When I finally get a GOOD camera I may ask you more about what you are learning... I can rub my tummy and pat my head so maybe I can figure it out too, lol
