My photos lacked a certain....ahhhh...."look"...Hahaaa...and she jumped right in and started making suggestions on how I could make improvements. I felt, starting these challenges would be just the thing to help, not only myself...but anyone else who just loved Anything to do with photography. It's worked and now I'm not alone!! Thanks to All of the people who participate. I just think it's plain old Fun!! Thanks Miz Brenda...Because of your wiliness to help someone, look at the many smiles you've brought to blogland!

And finally, I just wanted to remind all of us in the USA that postal rates will change Again on May 1st....Stamps go from .42 cents to .44 cents.....GEEZ!!!! Go purchase a few of these "Forever" stamps to tide you over the transition... Now if Only the US Postmaster would lower his Salary from 800,000 to......ALRIGHT....ALRIGHT...Hahahaaa...I'll leave it alone...I'm just Now more peaceful...Zen...Zen.......SO...Here's hoping you have a Wonderful day...Stay Happy!

I can't wait for this next challenge and see what everyone has created! I'm sure you will do great. Of course, you could always cheat and send me a few snaps for me to Photoshop for you. Geez, did I say that out loud? Goodness, I hope anyone didn't read that, hahaha!!!

I can't imagine blogging now without the photo challenge and the many, many friends that I have made from participating. And I have YOU to thank (big hugs!) for encouraging me to hop right in there. And I don't mind helping folks out one bit because I'm learning too!

Yep, we'll be losing a bit of sleep on Saturday night. But it will be soooo worth it!

And POO on the postal service for their mismanagement. I am loving online banking.

antigoni said...

You really deserve this award. Congratulations and thank you for your lovely blogs.

Caroline said...

Donna I so like the way your comments label lights up when you click on it. Just called by to say Hi!!

Brenda said...

I'm ready!

Thank you for the DST reminder! I love the extra hour of daylight in the evenings.

They're going up Again? Well shoot, I'm only about 1/3 through the last roll of 100 I bought so I expect I'll need to buy a few 2 cent stamps before then.

The USP continues to give worsening service for greater costs. In a nutshell, it sucks!

Sally said...

Oh gosh, I have to leave already and skip over to Donna-TN to ask her if I can send a photo and let her do all the work for me since I'm quite illiterate on that thar stuff.

Yeah, the postage thing - that stinks; pretty soon the stamps will cost more than the bills! And, to top it all off they're talkin' about cutting mail delivery to five days a week - the postal workers would lose a day's pay, I think. I bet the postmaster's salary won't be cut though.

I'm going to buy more .42 stamps, do they take credit cards? hahaha

My granddaughter got laid off yesterday - dang IT!!

Well, now I've written you a letter; at least I save a stamp! :)

Janice said...

Thanks for all the reminders!
I had wondered how the Brenda Photo Challenge got started...
I heard last year that postage will be going up on a yearly basis. It makes it hard for me to sell on ebay because shipping cost so much.
