"Pictures From the Past"

The theme this week by Lew is "Pictures From the PastMac, Kathy, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that. 

One  way to get a picture of the past is to take a photo of a printed picture. This one takes me back over 20 years ago and a fishing trip of a lifetime. The place was off the shore of Quepos Costa Rica in the Pacific Ocean. The catch is a 42" Roosterfish, the largest fish I caught that day. The boat was a 24 foot Bertram, very suitable for ocean fishing. The captain asked if we wanted to fish for sailfish but I choose Roosterfish. We caught Blue Runners for bait and started trolling. There were no results and I had my son-in-law to ask the boat captain if I could hold the rod. 12 Roosterfish later and tired out we were done. The captain called the fish el grande and even though I didn't know Spanish I knew what that meant. 
 A picture of my grand kids from the past, they are so cute when they are young and playful.

"YOUR FAVORITE PLACE TO VISIT"

The theme this week by Mac is "Your Favorite Place to Visit ". Mac, Kathy, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that. Mac is gone vacationing on his theme. 

My favorite place to visit is the lake with a camera and fishing pole in my hand. The water is still hard on March 25 TH which has put a stop to being on the lake. The ice is just barely off the shoreline. It will be another late start this year but soon the crappie will be biting.
 I might get some walleye to bite.
Maybe a big channel cat with it's forked tail.
The painted turtles will come up on the log to warm.
The Canada Geese will visit with the newly hatched goslings.
There may be a Ruddy Duck or two.
The muskrat will try to get a bite to eat (see its pointy tail).
The mallards will be there for sure.  I'll see you on the lake really soon.

Pics taken in the last Month

The theme this week by Kathy is "Pics taken in the last month ". Mac, Kathy, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that. 

I was at birthday party and three of the grand kids were there. One is graduating from college, one is going to be in high school next year and one is going to be a senior in high school. That is the order they are standing. What neat kids.
 2/23 and the truck was completely covered and snowed in..
3/18 and the crocus are blooming with some hyacinth coming out of the ground to the left.
2/24 and our street is such a mess. We also have some daffodils out of the ground.
3/18 Here is another bunch of crocus with snow bells near.
3/2 and the buildings are melting, with still a lot of snow.
3/18 I just love the crocus color.
3/14 and I'm breaking the ice off the curb areas. I made an ice chunk totem in memory of the rock totems in Ontario. It is all melted. Funny what a 65 F day will do.
3/18 The tulips are starting to make their appearance. This is the area behind the truck that was 3.5 feet high with snow.

"WHITE"

The theme this week by myself is "White". Mac, Kathy, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that. 

So I chose white, a hard color to show without contrast. So how about a kayak going down the Cuyahoga River in the middle of winter. He was getting ready to go into those rapids. He didn't turn over.
My daughter raises orchids, here is a beautiful white one.
Here is my truck surrounded by a a pile of white snow.
Here is another view of the kayak.
How could I go for white without showing snow bells.
My three lane street is shrinking with all the white stuff.
Here is a white ice sculpture as my artistic show. What does it look like? Maybe a big bug?
