175 Logs
Not too bad a shot considering I really couldn't look at what I was shooting. Just aimed through the windshield. I think this was the last shot I took before DH started doing the out the window pictures.
337 Travels
We were very lucky in our travels this spring. This was really the only road construction hold up we experienced. This was in Pennsyslvania, took 40 minutes to go about 8 miles. And it was only the second day that I had to drive in the rain.

133 Grumpy
I fear there are some days when I feel exactly the same way. Nose art on a aircraft on display in Mobile, AL where the USS Alabama is permanently docked.

265 Rural
Out in the boonies, signs of habitation were few and far between.

266 Rusted
Another sculpture from the Cary Visual Art 2008 Sculpture Competition. This is Memory Ball by Adam Walls. They hold various functions in the building in the background. It looked like they were setting up for a wedding the day we were there.

334 Toys
When we go to visit our DD and her two dogs we take a few new toys for the dogs. Samia is playing with her lobster, she's very funny when she plays with them while on her back.
326 Things with Wings
This wasp has interesting markings. Never know what you will find when you look closely or zoom in from a safe distance.

294 Something Borrowed
This is Pilot, one of my daughter's dogs. I like to "borrow" her dogs as they are so much fun. Pilot is very exuberant and a very sweet dog.

353 Water
There is a lovely garden at Cary's administration buildings area. At the Village Forum this week's Creative Challenge had a HDR tutorial using Elements. Figured this would make a good two-fer.

261 Risky (Morning Walk)
Yesterday morning, this little armadillo came strolling across the street close to us. All the cars slowed down but I'm afraid I see most of them as roadkill. We do have one who comes by our yard once a year. Digs a big hole under our fence and the shed in the back. Doesn't do too much other digging in our yard and then disappears.

36 Broken (Morning Walk)
This is the fence the heron was perched on that I had posted a couple of photos ago. Sometime while we were gone it fell over. I looked at the post and it looked like it had rotted. A little project for the city to fix.

192 Musical Instrument
This is "Air Guitar", it is a sculpture in Cary, NC where I was visiting with my daughter. It was done by Mike Roig. They had a contest and there were some wonderful pieces. Most of them were for sale but were out of my price range. Rachel and I got up early one morning to run around taking photos. Had a lovely time.
After spending a few days with her (& my laptop crashed again) DH and I went up to Rhode Island to see his brothers and then to Pennsylvania to see my sister. After we got back I spent another two hours with the Dell tech to get up and running. Still have a couple of issues to get fixed but they are minor. And I was promised that this would fix the problem. So now we are trying to get caught up and all the service and doctor's appointments done. I have to get all my photos loaded back onto the computer. A little overwhelmed with all the stuff that needs to be done. We have only been home three weeks total out of the last ten. Will be playing catch up. Think we are home for at least a couple of months.
