In Your Face!

Weddings are so much fun to attend! I went to this one when I was in college; the couple in this photo are dear friends of mine who were there for me at a time when I had no one. At the end of the wedding when the bride threw the bouquet, she aimed it at me and I ducked. I sure didn’t want that experience  in my life yet. I’ve been to several weddings, this was by far the most enjoyable. Cheers to T & M!!

365 Snap Shots of Life Challenge: Days 1-3

Hello Dear Reader,

I’m back from my holiday in Cali.  By the way, I like saying that I went on holiday so much better than I went on vacation. No, I’m not British and yes, I love the way they speak English in GB. Going on holiday implies mystery and adventure  while going on vacation, sounds so plain and mundane. Going on holiday excites me while going on vaca means I vacated my current premises and I’m not so sure where my feet are going to land next..

I am starting a year-long blog challenge. The idea just came to me after I was done viewing all the photos I took on my trip. Here it is, come rain or shine, hell or high water, I will post a photo I took and I will attach a short story or poem or at least a personal comment. There won’t be any web images on this challenge; in this way, I’ll be whetting my writing appetite and having to dust off my camera and start shooting snap shots of life. Since it’s already the 3rd day of the year, I’m already running behind so for today’s post I’ll put up 3 photos.

This is the place where the birds lead you around. If bird could talk oh what tales they would tell of their lives lived in ease. I’m sure they loath pesky camera crazy tourists like me, invading their private lives with an intrusive camera lens.

Spider Man's Hind Quarters

Ok, I wasn’t going for his behind no matter what you think. Spider Man and Shrek are betting on which dumb pedestrian is going to avoid using the cross walk so they can get hit on Hollywood Blvd.

Coming to a Bookstore near you in 2012

There is nothing like free advertising for my new book. I was in Santa Monica beach before heading home. My kids were all  writing on the sand and I said,” Why not? Everybody needs a free plug now and then right?”
