I can't believe I haven't been here for over a year!
What a year, right?
How are you all?
I've missed you all tremendously, though I do check in on Bob Statten's Twitter! ( Thank god for you, Bob! I've needed the voice of righteous reason so much!)
What to say about this year?
Ups. Downs. Haven't choked, killed or slapped anyone so I guess I;m ahead of some! I also think I deserve a "Good Job" sticker for not slapping or choking people...I do live in a Red county! I guess I could tell you all that I've been working on my tolerance, patience and self-control but really, I've just been sitting on my hands a lot and swearing quietly behind my covid mask.
Made rainbow masks for my husband and me. My own little passive-aggressive act to all the
shitheads fine people of Shasta County!
What have you been doing during this global social distancing? Vodka, Tequila, Zanax?
The Guy and I have been taking off to take pictures of nature about 3 or 4 days a week. Neowise comet actually had us up at 2 or 3 a.m. to drive up to Lassen Park (6000 to 7000 ft elevation to photograph it in mornings. Then we were all over the place to catch it in the evenings.
Here's a shot the Guy took at Whiskeytown Lake; Glory Hole in foreground!
Milky Way from Lassen Park!
In January we took of to Klamath Wildlife Refuge and caught some awesome photos of gloriousbirds and wildlife.
Goose bumps when one of these guys is staring at you through the lens!
Can you believe the frost on on those feathers?
Not as sharp on the focus but I was so excited I might have been shaking! Or, it could have been the cold; it was 10 degrees F.
I'm hoping it won;t be another year before I remember there is more to life than cameras and audio books!
In the meantime, Friends,remember to
