Parts 5 & 6 Of "Vintage Garden"

August 27, 2012

It's three o'clock in the morning, and the Mrs is snoring away while I sit here at the kitchen table, playing on my laptop.  I would try to catch a few winks while she is sleeping but she wakes up about once every hour.   These newest pills that she is on have really messed up her sleep/awake system. 

I hope when I get to be 95 that my kids don't fill me up with all sorts of pills.  Especially the kind that take away my ability to function.   I don't want to be put into a nursing home either.  Hmmmm, I think I need to re-write my will.  No one gets anything from me if I am in a nursing home.  What a great idea. 

You know, if Congress would stop sending billions and billions of dollars to everyone all over the world, they could use that money to keep us old folks very comfortable in our "golden" years.  They could use that money to feed our hungry children, and to build a water pipeline to save our farmers' crops and animals.  They could put America back to work, and keep families in their homes.   They could do so much.  It's so simple.  So why don't they?

Mrs keeps telling me that I should run for President.   Well, considering the fact that Congress does not ask me for my opinion on anything now, what makes her think that any of them would back me if I ran for office.   One must have millions of dollars to spread around, and be an expert at lying in order to be a favorite candidate.  I don't have the money, and I can't lie my way out of a paper bag.  So much for that idea!

This morning I have the cutest photo of Pogo to share.  He was standing up in his car seat with the cutest expression on his face.  I just couldn't resist taking some photos.  I think this one is simply adorable!

Today is also Mandarin Orange Monday, and time for a new piece of photo art.  I used two textures on my photo, "Urban" by Kim Klassen and "Dusty Rose Bokeh" from Bonnie at Pixel Dust Photo Art.  In Photoshop, I used the "dry brush" filter and the "difference" blending mode. 

I also have the last two parts of "Vintage Garden" for you.  I hope you are enjoying this fun kit.  Su and I are already working on the September kit which will be a totally nice surprise for you.  But that's all that I can say about that.  You'll just have to come back later for it.

Here are your download links:

When you have finished downloading, do hop on over to Su's web site and pick up her last two parts.  Please don't forget to take a moment to say thank you. 

That's it for my morning rambling.  It's time to go check on the Mrs.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

You do get a lot of good ideas (one of the reasons I enjoy reading your blog). I like the idea of nobody gets anything if they put you in a nursing home ... good plan:)

I also like your political ideas ... nothing is getting done because some in congress don't want to pass anything that would give the current President credit for having done something good ... so what happened to "Country First"?
Having grown up when loyalty and patriotism were honest and had meaning, I am sickened by what I am seeing now.

As for Pogo's picture, you should enter that in a contest somewhere ... he would surely take a first place for the cutest, happiest dog ever ... even if he does sass you, he is adorable and I know you love it! Have a Wonderful Day Edna ...

P.S. When are you going to get rid of the word varification thing ... my old eyes struggle every time I have to do it and I usually need more than one try to get it. I am afraid, one of these days, you won't get my comment because I can't work your puzzle :) Just sayin'

Lovely butterfly image- just look at those patterns! The orange looks great against the green flower and the soft blue background too. Thanks for sharing it on Mandarin Orange Monday:)

Hmmm, Edna for president!!! Poor Congres. You probably wouldn;t give them an inch of space to react against your plans LOL!
My dear, it's about the same everywhere in politics. Difficult, and uncomprehensible.
We are having elections soon too and now the different parties started their election campaingnes, but who to believe??? It's just a case of believing one a bit more than the other and then hoping for the best.
Have a great day!
P.S. Pogo's picture is awesome!!!
