The Week in Review

1. Saturday - Daughter and one Grandson came for a visit. I don't post photos of the kids, but will post this old blurry picture of daughter from the 80s. She was a huge Police fan. She will not be happy if she reads this post. Telephone to her ear and The Police. That's my girl.

2. Sunday - Went to a photography show at Lincoln Square Mall in Urbana, Illinois. We enjoyed seeing the exhibits, but didn't stay for the critique. Our local camera club may be having a photography contest this spring. Nice to see what other people are taking photos of. We had lunch at Applebee's before heading home. As we drove by the Elliott's cemetery sign, we decided to stop. I enjoy walking through graveyards. Weird? or not? This particular cemetery is supposed to be haunted, but aren't all of them? I wouldn't want to be caught after dark in one. This one had a spooky tree.

3. Monday - Gus and I went for a long drive looking for photo ops. Found some really cool things, including an old washing machine inside a falling down house.
Gus still pees like a girl dog, but he learned how to hang his head out the window and enjoy the wind blowing through his ears. He's making progress.

4. Tuesday - I was excited to see the first Robin of the year in the back yard. They are a sign of spring. I think they might be early since we have a chance of snow Friday night.

5. Friday & Saturday - Went to visit daughter and see granddaughter's Jazz Band Concert. I was absolutely shocked to see her playing the saxophone. She plays several instruments, but this one was news to me. She is a brilliant musician. Proud grandma here.


  1. Love your photos! I wish I would get my picture taking motivation back! I didn't think Willy-Nilly Friday 5 was still around. Checking out Five on Friday! Good Morning!

    1. Willy-Nilly Friday is definitely still around! You have a link to it. I was just saying back a bit, couple of years ago I didn't think it was still around.

  2. Fantastic photos, great to come across your blog via Five on Friday, look forward to seeing more of your posts in the future :)

  3. Love your photo's and isn't great when the grandkids can surprise us with their talents. And yep, that's a scary tree.


  4. Great photos - I especially like the falling down house. x

  5. I am sorry to be late visiting, but I wanted to wait until the link had closed and I could write to everyone who had taken part. Thank you so much for your support of Five On Friday this week and in the weeks gone by. I do so appreciate it and have really enjoyed reading your posts. I hope that you will enjoy going to the new link up just as much and will continue to take part. I hope that I will still see you at my blog sometimes, I will of course still be visiting you sometimes too! Best wishes and many thanks.
