Huggy, a memorial service and exercise
Friday of last week a friend from church died from cancer. She thought she had beaten this some years ago but it came roaring back with a vengence in July. This was the first Memorial Service I have attended since Annie's on 3 Aug 2005. It was kind of a hard thing to go to but I really liked Trudy and wanted to be there. I am glad that I did go.
I joined the YMCA in Sep 2005 to exercise in order to loose some weight & get into better physical condition. I started out pretty good but fell by the wayside, then left on my Snowbird trip & never got started again. I have continued to pay my $29 per month but haven't lost much weight, except $29 worth in the wallet every month. Well, I went there again today and got a refresher on using some of the machines. This time I think I WILL do better. SW is also inspiring me to eat better (and less) so between the two it may work this time. Time will tell and I'll let you know how I do. I even bought a bathroom scale to check the results, good or not so good.
Today is my older son's 34th birthday. He is in the Navy and his ship is away for awhile so we will celebrate his birthday when he gets back. We got to talk tonight on the phone. As long as I am reposting photos, I think I will repost one of he and Annie that was taken when he was just a few days old. This was with one of my old Nikon F 35mm cameras, using a 50mm f/1.4 Nikor lens, Tri X black & white film and window light. I copied the negative with my scanner, then made the image positive in Photoshop:
When I looked at my blog tonight for some reason the side bar was gone. Not just pushed to the bottom, but gone. The posts themselves seem okay and the comments are there but none of the profile, Blogroll, archives or Statcounter shows up. Is anyone else having problems today with Blogger or did something happen to my template? I haven't worked on it for some time so can't understand why it would be corrupted. When I get this posted I'll go back into my Favorites and check some other blogs. It all looked fine this morning. Aren't computers fun sometimes?
Great picture of Huggy, and also of Annie & baby!! She sure was a beauty!
Good luck with the diet and exercize program. I never use a scale (to depressing) I go by how my clothes fit.
They are both great photos. The one of Annie is so dear.
Happy Birthday to your son.
YES I would love to go RVing, Something I dream of for our retirement!
What an adorable picture of Annie and your son....Happy Birthday to him!
As always your photos are excellent , and HUGGY is beautiful here , it looks like she is going to jump right out of my screen :}
Hope you are well MR Mocha :}and I love the Elvis Post ,thanks for letting us tag along .
Hope your happy and well HUGS for Huggy and OK you too haha
Great pics as always. The one of Annie and your son is precious and Huggy looks adorable. Birthday wishes to your son.
Sending you support for your excercising. It's not easy to get back into the swing of things. Glad to see SW giving you support.
These are such beautiful photos. I love the one of Annie and your son. The composition, lighting, angle. All superb.
And, being a cat lover, I want to tell Huggy he is a handsome fellow, indeed!
Huggy's portrait is a winner too.
It's hard to keep up an exercise routine. Having a dog has forced me over the years to keep walking!
Happy Birthday to your son, and as always your pics are wonderful.
Sorry to hear about your friend's passing, that is always hard.
Look forward to see more older photos.
Have a great weekend with Huggy.
The photo of Huggy is amazing ... please give her a huge hug and scratch under the chin for me. She is a beautiful cat.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Take care, Meow
