This is from a long time ago, we went camping on summer and found these pretty little things.. not to sure what they are called.. they didn't last long.. but were such a delight to see..

come on people lets help Michael out..
I have seen your generosity many  many times..
I have seen people help out with over 6,000 for help with a Vegas trip expense..  I have seen people help out with over a 1,000 dollars for a new computer.. this man needs our help.. its his life we are taking about.. and medical expense.. He has no job.. no insurance.. and the medical expense is just adding up and up...
so how about opening up your hearts and help this man.
even 5 dollars would help.. and we all can afford at least that..
Thank you so much to everyone that was able to help and for your thoughts and prayers and with that said I'm going to ask all 16,704 of you that follow me to reshare this post once for me .... I don't like or want to ask for help but you are my people you are my voice... every little bit helps .... and at the moment I need any and all of the help I can get ...
My name is Michael Albrecht.  I was diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer earlier this month and have just learned it has spread to lymph nodes.  My wife is a double transplant patient so any money we did have went to paying her bills and for her continuing treatment. I am currently uninsured and une...

Somewhere in the distance
There's a place for me to go
I don't want you to hate me
But I think you need to know
You're weighing on my shoulders
And I'm sick of feeling down
So I guess it's time for me to say goodbye

 one of the grandkids last summer came running into the house so excited yelling at me to come out side for he found something that the cat was playing with.. we scooped it up in a bowel and brought it in the house.. fearful that the cat had done some damage.. but the little creature survived.. and the boys had fun watching it.. after wards we put it on a bush outside and scowled at the cat.. they loved its red dots..
can't wait to see these once again.. and flowers.. lots and lots of flowers..

p.s. comments are disabled for now.. so I thank you all in advance for the likes.. soft hugs have a wonderful day.. and keep warm by remembering how the summer sun feels.. it will come.. it will .. some point anyway..  :-)

just so you all know that I am not being mean spirited or don't want to hear what most of you have to say on my photos.. but because of late I have had to remove some comments.. to many really.. I have now disabled all comments on all posts.. and it will have to stay that way  until some very rude people get tired and go elsewhere..
hope you understand..
flowers and chocolate go so well together..

now.. I have broken the silence here.. because of you  +Gerard Culhane

noun: fetish; plural noun: fetishes

   * an inanimate object worshiped for its supposed magical powers or because it is considered to be inhabited by a spirit*.
_ I don't think nor do I believe anyone else wants a gun because its inhabited by a spirit .. get real Sir_..
        a course of action to which one has an excessive and irrational commitment.
    us Americans are committed to protecting our loved ones.. if that is excessive or irrational in your way of thinking then I truly feel sorry for you and your loved ones.  
        a form of sexual desire in which gratification is linked to an abnormal degree to a particular object, item of clothing, part of the body, etc.
sorry.. wrong again I have never really heard of anyone having sex or wanting to have sex with a gun
so you see your interpretation of our right to bear arms.. is a little creepy to me Sir.
I could and would go on about how we Americans have a wonderful Constitution  that we try to live by.. ( which by the way the 2cd amendment give us the right to bear arms.. ) but I think I would be wasting my time.. and no doubt yours. as I don't believe you care  what we believe or think..
as your response to Jason was totally out of line.. I don't mind anyone giving their thought on any given subject.. but I think your response was not only rude to him but to all of Americans.. and that Sir will not be tolerated on my page..

Fine Arts Photographer ...Visual Artist,
Photography and art for me is a  gift.. that has allowed me to escape into a world that  captivities me with wonder, awe and delight. When out in God's creation or the every day happenings around us.. are blessings always to be treasured/cherished... for they are only brief moments in time helps keeps those moments alive..
