My Hubby and I have spent the last few days out in our backyard.
We've been pruning and getting rid of a lot of "Dead Wood".
The weather has been balmy and perfect for working.
At our age, it really is Working!
I have to say it's a satisfying ache and pain to see the results.
The plum tree is just beginning to burst forth with dainty blossoms.
Remember to enlarge the photos for more detail.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Here we are at the 5th letter of the Alphabet.
It's the letter E.
Trying to figure out what to post for E
Made me feel a bit like EEYORE,
" Oh Bother"
How about a bright fake ELEPHANT for the letter E?
EITHER EVENING or daytime, the castle at Disneyland is ELEGANT.
This EVENING sky is so EASY on the EYES.
Don't forget to ENLARGE the photos.

The letter for ABC Wednesday this week is " D ".
The first thing I thought of was our
GRAND-DOGGER ... Snicker as in SnickerDOODLE....
Our GranDAUGHTERS are owned by their DELIGHTFUL
Here she is at about 2 months.
A very sweet LabraDOODLE.
And about 7 months later she looked like a SheepDOG.
No tiny little girl DID she turn out to be...
Age and a good hair cut shows that sweet face.
That DARN smile will melt your heart.
Now Snicker is 8 years older than the first photo.
She again has her Winter "DOODLE" coat.
Thanks for looking.
Now go to the ABC link on the sidebar to see what others have chosen
for ABC Wednesday, Letter " D ".

January 31, 1961
is Dave and my 52nd Wedding Anniversary.
It's hard to believe that we have been married for more than
a half of a century...
Boy, that sounds old!!
I guess that's because it's a whole lot of years.
A Merry Roller Coaster.
I am glad we have this photo with both sets of parents.
They have been gone for a lot of years.
More pounds and more gray
and lots more love.
Love you bunches.

We seem to be CHARGING ahead with ABC Wednesday.
Today's letter is " C ".
Here are a COUPLE of CANOES just waiting to CARRY someone down the river.
If you don't want to travel by CANOE , how about a horse?
The sign says it's man's noblest COMPANION.
If neither of those suggestions appeal to you,
How about a CUP of COFFEE while you COMPOSE your thoughts?
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a COMMENT.

On this dampish winter day I have again made a trip back into my archives.
During a recent day trip
We came upon an old church and stage coach stop in the Gold Country.
I thought it made an interesting capture.
Enlarging it will show the detail.
Have a great weekend.

Here we go again with ABC Wednesday.
Today's letter is " B "
I think I will go with the theme
BLACK and White
My photos are definitely going to be random pictures posted in BLACK and White.
On a gray and dreary day it wasn't hard to see the world in
BLACK and White.
A little BIT of color on the BLACK and White car
BRANDED with the letter " B ".
Thanks for looking and leaving a comment.
It's most appreciated.
Check out what others have posted for " B "

Can you believe this is the start of session 18?
I am going to give it a valiant try AGAIN this time.
Round 18..... the letter " A ".
ALONE with his thoughts.
Sad and ALONE in the cold and snowy cemetery.
Buried ALONE and forgotten.
ALWAYS remember to go to the ABC link on my sidebar

When our son was visiting in late November,
We took a road trip to Boomtown, Nevada.
On the way we stopped at a ranch and had a good time
Shooting some Old Timer photos.
You will definitely have to enlarge these to get the full effect.
Have a great rest of the weekend.

Here we are at the last letter of the alphabet.
ZED the end.
" Z "
I can't believe that I have done this ABC round 17 times!
I have to say it does get harder to find things I haven't posted before.
I did have to sneak back into my archives and post another from our trip to Kenya.
Don't you love the expression of the ZEBRA on the left?
Almost a photo bomb...
Enlarging the picture will definitely show the detail more clearly.
I do love the way the limbs of this tree ZIG ZAG their way across the sky.
The stormy rain clouds ZIPPED across the landscape and finally have dumped some precipitation on our thirsty land.
ZERO leaves on the branch allowed the water drop to be seen in all it's glory.
Thanks for looking.

The YEAR 2015 is coming to an end.

May this next YEAR be filled with joy and laughter.

I'm in a bind for time, so this ABC Wednesday is a bit early.
The letter this week is " X ".
The obvious choice is XMAS.
I would rather say Merry Christmas.
Here's Santa wishing you all the wonders of the Christmas season.
I decided to add this " X " on the dock for good measure.

This is Christmas Eve 2005.
A perfect set of photos for Throwback Thursday.
A long time ago, filled with many memories.
Cousins, Uncles, Grandpas and music.
There is no better combination.
Santa is knocking at the door.
Santa and his bag of gifts.
Oh those little kiddos are all grown up now.

WE are WINDING our WAY to the end of the alphabet.
Today's letter is " W ".
WOODEN WATER WHEEL
The next two photos are from an event in Sacramento, CA.
It was called Global WONDERLAND and was a WONDERFUL,
colorful display of larger than life lighted sculptures.
Please enlarge the photos to see these brilliant WHALES.

We finally got a little bit of rain.
It was just enough to knock off the last of the leaves.
Now we have naked trees and interesting skies.
There are a few puddles still around.
I saw some lonely leaves still trying to show off their Fall finery.
I have to say that the rain washed the sky to a brilliant blue.
It's going to be a good day.
