Geocaching

 

My baby sister, Jean and her husband took off early Friday.  I had let my laundry and stuff really pile up, so I started right in on that and also gave the RV a good cleaning.  These days it seems like I have to make myself do these types of things.  I had just got off to a good start and the electric went off.  Last year that only happened one time, and that was because a car had hit a light pole and took the lines down.  I had a pot of chili on cooking, the dryer running, so you can imagine how hot it got in here.  It did come back on in about an hour, so all is well again.  It had been cool here in Indy, but because I made chili, it got hotter than hell.  We still enjoyed it though.

 

The Colt’s did win their game Sunday, playing the Chief’s, but it was a very well matched game.  The Chief’s really have a good team this year, and I think they are going to do very well.

 

We had another surprise on Saturday.  My daughter and her husband came up late Saturday evening, which really surprised me.  She had a craft show all day Saturday(she makes jewelry and sells it at special shows), so couldn’t imagine them coming up after that, but they are young and healthy.  She was born on her Uncle Boone’s Birthdate and he is also her God Father, so they have stayed very close.

This is a picture of them from a year ago.  The next picture was taken Sunday.  I hope it shows up alright.  You can tell in the picture just how much weight he has lost. This one is a phone picture so not very large.

I love being able to change my header picture, but could some one out there tell me how to either change the position of my site name, or change the color so it will show up better?

 

I would also love to learn how to do collages, like so many of you are doing, but every time I try it,  all the pictures in the file I am wanting them from, jump into the collage.  Do you have to put the pictures, you want in the collage, in a special or separate file, or how do you do this?    Is there anyplace to go to read up on all of this?  I would appreciate any suggestions you may have.

 

The header picture is from Desoto Park near Hot Springs Ark.  The back side is a very large water falls, but the lake was very low and not any water was falling over, but I liked this shot anyway.

 

We stopped at a produce stand here in Indy yesterday and picked up some peaches, apples, plums, tomatoes, and lots of conversation.  The guy that runs it was a big talker and we thought for a while we weren’t going to get out of there.  He was very nice, but not sure we will go back.  The produce was not that great, but I do realize that it is late in the season.

 

Want to welcome my new follower, Dardrian.  He has several blogs, so check him out if you get a chance.

 

We were able to get out and do some geocaching yesterday.  We found 5 caches, but had a million dollar day.  It really relieved a lot of pent-up pressure I have been feeling, and the fresh air was divine.  I slept long and hard last night.  The next few pictures are all from our geocaching yesterday.

At this point in my blogging  I have decided to only post if we are doing something that I think will be interesting to you.  Otherwise my time will be spent with doing for my brother, and keeping our lives as smooth as possible.  I will read favorite blogs as often as I can.  Thanks for all your support and help changing to this new site.  I love it, and I will be back, just not near as often.  Stay safe and I will catch you later….

Make your collages with Picasa. It has all the tools necessary. Then save it as a different picture. Load that picture into the blog just like another normal photo.

We like to do geocaching, too! We usually only do it when we are on trips, I guess we are too busy at home to bother with it. I enjoyed seeing your pictures!

Pidge, to put just the pictures that you want into the collage, hold down the "Ctrl" key and click on each picture you want to 'select' it. Then let go of the 'Ctrl' key and on the top toolbar, select Create > Picture Collage.

Just the photos you have selected will be part of your new collage. Now, you can go ahead and use "settings" totry out different collage formats.

Pidge, I appreciate your posts... I really enjoy them. I also understand that you're needed elsewhere and I'll look forward to hearing from you when you're able.
