THE BLACK AND WHITE VERSION


2007 has been a good year. There are some years that I cannot wait to tear the December page off and run smack dab into another year. This one is just going out sort of gently for me and that it alright. The last 2 months have been a sort of fog for me. Driving home yesterday, it occurred to me that it felt as thought I have been living the Lost In Space TV show from the 1960's. Where they were just bouncing from planet to planet since they had been thrown off course by the pesky Dr. Smith. They keep trying to get to where they need to get to but keep finding themselves in odd places with even odder people. Yet, no one ever breaks down crying because they are lost. (They never DID make it back to Earth because the show was cancelled in it's 3rd season). No one kills Dr. Smith or leaves him on one of those weird planets so that fate can deal with him. They all just sucked it up and carried on....usually having a good time as long as they are all together.

That is the best way I can describe my last 2 months. There has been no *DANGER WILL ROBINSON* shouted out by the robot. Nothing bad at all....just floating around and bumping into things here and there. Landing on this for a few moments and then gravitating over to that. That is why I have not been around much. Just floating....living....occupying space.....


2007 saw Babygator's heart get totally broken in two. Then mended again by Biker out of the blue. He is also a very good friend to Bebo.
It was the first time that I pulled a blog entry after I hurt a friend. It was about Thanksgiving shopping. What a stupid thing for me to get cross wise with anyone about!
I won my beloved camera and several other things. I love taking pictures!!




It saw a meet-up with flutterby and her crazy wonderful family.


It brought that wonderful little fiberglass calf and Tarzan into my life.


2007 saw Bebo get a letter jacket (no pic of that just yet) and my first real glimpse of him being a grown up.

In 2007, we are healthy, happy and a tinsy bit insane...and it's all good.

    Ditto here.

    And glad you're back. Floating can be refreshing sometimes.

    And PS, you take really good pictures.

  2. I don't like it when you float! I have missed you! I'm so glad you posted something! I've been thinking all day about doing a post but have not done it yet...maybe after while.

    You'll have to go read on my blog about my left middle finger floating into a larger than life (but only slightly larger) pineapple.

    And I am sending an email with a question for you.

  4. I am going to have to get you a pic of Mermaid and her new haircut. She looks so different now than back when the one you have was taken! She, too, now looks so very grown up.

  7. I loved you post Mom Gator. I know we talked about it on the phone yesterday, but I wanted to leave you a comment anyway. Biker read it too and he loved it! 2007 was rough, rocky, and a bit insane, but I don't know how much of it I would change. We learned a lot in '07, but I have to say...that year will not be missed.

  19. I have missed you so much my friend, but so glad to get the update. May your year be filled with stunning photos, bright night skies, captured smiles, growth, leaping (its a leap year you know), cheering and at least one hug that will stick with you like glue. Love you sister. Happy - no freakin' fantastically ecstatic - New Year to you.
