Camera CrittersThis meme is all about photos of animals/critters.
Visit the Camera Critters website for more wonderful critter photos.






This little guy was at our family reunion a few weeks ago. He sat behind my dad during the whole event and as far as I know, never made a sound.

Color Carnival - 08-29-09

Martha hosts this meme about color.



Another archive photo until I'm back on my feet and my camera is home from the shop! This is from the June carnival here in Portland. I think it was a Raiders of the Lost Ark ride.

Window Views - 08-26-09


Mary T hosts Window Views.











Window in the mausoleum at Lone Fir Pioneer Cemetery in Portland. See Sepia Scenes for more photos of this interesting building.

Sepia Scenes 08-26-09: Mausoleum


Sepia Scenes is hosted by Mary T, who also hosts the fabulous Ruby Tuesday.







The mausoleum at Lone Fir Pioneer Cemetery in Portland. (Photos taken last fall.)


For another view of this window, see today's Window Views post.






Despite a little vandalism, my best guess is that the mausoleum holds the family of Donald Macleay, a prominent Portland merchant. Macleay was an early real estate developer and an investor in railroads.

Ruby Tuesday - 08-18-09: Past Gas

MaryT/theteach hosts this weekly event - photographs of all things red.








Pegasus Theater Shop in Snohomish Washington - home to a gazillion bits of nostalgia, from Betty Boop to "Past Gas."

I'm back!

Hello faithful blogisters! Just a note to let you know I'm back and mending well but not in full swing yet. Since my camera is in the shop for awhile, I'll be posting some archival photos (makes it sound so old - my archives only go back a year or so!).




Ms. P has some hair now!
