Day 90 - July 25, 2011 - There are Back...Sort of

The Cicadas visited us back in May...stayed
for weeks and they let you know they
were around with the loud noises they
made.....I mean LOUD!
There thousands upon thousands of
them. That batch were known
as the Periodic Cicadas.
Coming out every 13 to 17 years.

But now we have been visited by the Annual Cicadas.
Not many have appeared but these bad boys
come once a year.
They are fatter, don't have the orange eyes and the wings
appear to be longer. But after weeks of the
noise we put up with, I was surprised when I heard
these guys. I thought maybe they were really
late bloomers! The internet helped with my
learning about the differences.

Day 89 - July 24, 2011 - Center Hill Dam

I was kidnapped yesterday by Brian to go for a ride.
We had lunch and took off to Center Hill Dam in
DeKalb County. Nice beautiful ride and the
dam area is so pretty.

This is off the the side of the damn, caught this view
as I stood on the road over the dam.

There is water that apparently leaks out around the
dam and comes out in caves along the bank.
This is all the water that was flushing out.
Isn't that such a pretty view.
another shot of that view.

Day 87 - July 22, 2011 - Hungry!

While at the lake the other day off the side of the dock
my sis in law and I watched all these little
fish swimming around. We had just
finished dinner so she threw in a fry.....
And before I could blink this big guy came up and
grabbed that fry off the top of the water. He must
have been there, right under the surface but a bit more
down then the little ones. Next fry, produced about
5 of these big ole guys.

Day 86 - July 21, 2011 - Who is Who

I love looking at old pics of my kids and now
of my grand kids. I love to see how they all

In this first pic titled Caleb ~ my grandson that is almost
11 yrs. old. The photo next to him is his little
brother Braden. Braden is not yet a yr. old.

But look at that, how much they favor.
Now compare the photo of this little boy...
It is Cory, my son. Yes, the two boys
favor Cory a lot but.....Cory is
their uncle!
I love it!

The little girl in this pic is Amber, she is
my daughter and the mother of Caleb
and Braden.

If I had a pic scanned to show you Amber as a baby
you would see just how much Braden and Caleb favor
her also.

Day 77- July 12, 2011 - Wall of Fame

My youngest brother Mark and his wife, Kim only
have the one child....Holly, who recently turned
16. She has played in several plays and I honestly
don't think there is anything you could give
this girl that she would not do well.

Anyway, this is Holly's wall of FAME in
their hallway. I love it cause most everyone
of these pics I took. That makes me feel
really good.
