I was walking with a friend down an old downtown, revamped area. While we were chatting we did not notice mama goose and she scared the you know what out of us when we got too close to her. I waited until she settled back down and then snapped her picture. Whew...who knew how dangerous it would be just shopping?!!

My daughter is home after spending 5 months traveling through India with the Hare Krishnas. She went on pilgramages and met the most interesting of people. She wore saris (they were cooler than what she had) and generally made herself at home in the India culture. This is one of her photos that I loved. It is the Gange River I believe..if am wrong I will correct it later....and the worshipers.followers bathing in the river.

While in Washington DC with my Scholastic Bowl kids the end of May, we took a quick trip downtown early early early to see the "sights"--the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial, the White House (which we couldn't even drive by because it was blocked off due to Rolling Thunder (a motorcycle event on Memorial Day))...As we were driving down the boulevard, I saw these 2 one way signs......which way should I go? Well, I went straight! I will show you that tomorrow.

(I apologize in advance for the blurry photo but I was on the escalator when I snapped this with my Iphone.)While at the Hyatt, I saw this Indian couple throughout the day, actually. The bride never seemed happy all 4 times I saw her....but this one cracked me up. While the photographer was trying very hard to pose the bride and groom -like the tapestry behind them- the groom totally ignored him so he could answer his cell phone. Now I ask you, who do you suppose was calling him if he was at his wedding? Wouldn't all his friends and family know he was a bit busy???? Look at the bride's face. NOT a happy camper.

I was at the Hyatt Reniassance Hotel(by O'Hare airport) for an event and I saw a few interesting things....this was the first one.....I am assuming it was for a wedding and this was the bride and groom's car/destination. I will admit to never having seen flowers like this on a car before but I will tell you this...they sure smelled lovely! No expense was spared if one is putting Calla Lilies on a CAR!

I was with my girlfriend in a place called Cedarsburg, Wisconsin and we saw these motorcycles parked near where we were having lunch. We could not resist taking a picture of what I think are vintage motorbikes....but I could be wrong!

We celebrated your 94th birthday on May 25 and you really wanted the 100 celebration candles as you were pretty sure you wouldn't make it to 100. For being in pretty good health other than a bit of forgetfulness...oh and the broken wrist that happened on Thursday....we thought you would. Well, you proved you were right and we should've listened to you. May you rest in peace and know we will miss you.
