The first 500 where taken of Caterpillar tractors and big earth movers. (and a few flowers at church this morning.)
The other 75 I took of my friend and her husband and their 9 month old baby girl, my God- Daughter. My friend was a collage of casual family shots and wanted to do some thing like it.
here are the ones we liked the best.

Today I was pointed in the direction of a blog that's sole existence is as a place for people to bash another MB.
Really? have people got so little to do that this is their entertainment? What if all those folks went outside and found something productive to do, OR what if they donated their time to any number of worthy causes....
really, what if they just stopped feeding on the hate?

How do you choose your Vox neighbors and friends?
Submitted by gcgal.
I choose my neighbors in different ways, but always I choose people whom I enjoy reading their musings. I've chosen a couple people based solely on the way they write, and I have found more underneath their writing style that I enjoy about them.
I have chosen some people just for something we have in common.
I have chosen some people with different lives, opinions and worlds views than myself, but no one who presents their opinion in way that feels disrespectful to me. I don't come here for a fight, or to feel like I'm being baited into one. If I want to read someone's differing opinion from my own I want to read it so I can understand where they are coming from.
I have added some people just because they added me.
I do need to weed out the neighbors who dont post, or have closed their vox altogether. But I feel like such a traitor when I do that.

This is a special puppy. It is one of the most wonderful gifts ever given to me. On Mother's day this past year, my nephew had with him this puppy and another. Both very cute. He showed them to me and I commented how cute the borderCollie was as it looked just like the Border Collie I used to have, Lady.

My mother in law, K brought down her cockatiel about 2 weeks ago. K is an over the road trucker. Her friend was taking care of Max, until this friend got angry. She left Max on K's front porch. Kay was just going to take him to the pet store and leave, so I told her to bring him here, if he was not a good pet for us we'd find him a new home later.
Max has been fairly annoying. He has squawked one annoying note since he got here. Until Sunday. Sunday he started to ring like a telephone. beep beep beep pause beep beep beep pause beep beep beep. It gave us quite a giggle. Monday he expanded him repertoire to include a weird remix of robin chirps, sparrow songs, and juvenile chicken chirps. All mixed into the same weird tune. I can't wait to hear his next remix. (Thank goodness we aren't in the city so it wont be firetrucks and ambulance sirens)
