Happy 95th Birthday "Mrs"

October 24, 2012

Good morning.  It's sunny with a few clouds, and today's temps will be around 58 to 60 degrees.  Not so bad for this time of year.  It looks like the weekend will be bringing cooler temperatures with it.  Not too cool though, mid fifties.  Still,  that's very seasonal.

Yesterday was a busy day.  I found out that Mediafire has changed the rules for the free accounts.  They are limited to around seven downloads a day, depending on the file size. (At least I think that's how it was explained to me.)   Well, that's not so good.  However, for just $18 a year, one can upgrade to a personal account and have almost unlimited downloads.  So that's what I did, I upgraded. 

Next, I went online to see about upgrading my Photoshop to the newer version, PS6.  The directions for which parts to download and how to install everything were looking quite confusing to my fuzzy little brain, so I called Adobe instead and purchased the upgrade over the phone.  I asked for the upgrade to be on disk instead of downloading, and they said no problem.  I should have my new program in a week to ten days.

I also finished up a QP for the QP Challenge at Digiscrapstation.  I've included both sizes, 12x12 and 8x8 in the folder.  Enjoy.

Today is the Mrs' birthday.  She's 95 years young, and still quite chipper.  Woo Hoo!  Happy Birthday, "Mrs".  I know everyone is curious about what the Mrs looks like so here is the photo I took a couple of weeks ago.   She's looking very pretty with her new perm.

On my way home from work the other day, I stopped for a moment to photograph the little street that I go down just before I get home.  It's such a pretty street,  I tweaked it in Color Efex Pro 4, but I forget the filter I used.  It came out looking sort of like a colored pen drawing.

Aren't the Fall colors gorgeous?  This year the colors that are blazing everywhere are just awesome.  The first large tree as you turn on to this street is not showing in the photo, but it is a brilliant orange and red.

Today, I have another QP to finish up for another forum.  As soon as it is ready, I will get it posted here for you.  Then it will time to get busy on the November collab kit.  In between all this, I still have a few photo class assignments to work on.  I've gotten behind on them and now I need to get caught up. 

I' also have to start planning for my trip to Florida early next March.  I'm hoping that the pet plane tickets haven't gone up much.  Can you imagine having to pay over $200 for a round trip ticket for a three and a half pound doggie?  And you still have to tuck his carrier under the seat in front of you!  Outrageous! 

We could use my broom but there's no room on it for the luggage!  Hmmmm, now there's an idea for a new product.  A broom with a luggage compartment!  I wonder how much more difficult it would be to ride this new broom?  I wonder, would it be very expensive?  I'm really surprised that the
government hasn't slapped an excise tax on our brooms,!   Or when they will start requiring a special license to ride our brooms!  Such a dismal thought!

Ah well, now I'm going to mosy on over to the kitchen to see what Pogo and I will have for breakfast.  I'm thinking maybe we'll have some Corn Flakes. (Pogo's corn flakes are served along with regular doggie breakfast food.)   Mmmmm, that sounds like a good idea.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Well, happy birthday Mrs!!!
She is looking lovely and makes a great model!

Your street near your house is really wonderful.
Hope you can find a good price for the tickets in March. I wonder what Pogo will think of a travel by airplane?
Enjoy your day!

When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added"
checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

Thank you!
