  1. Susan, this looks like it might be a nice little project for me to practice my new photography skills! I’ll be back.

  2. Off to the park tomorrow…how fun.

    You are so artistic minded…and I see you are blending that with your other love. *smile.*

    See ya tomorrow.



  3. Hi Barb and Bea! I am excited to see your photos:) Yippee!

  4. Susan, can’t get the pictures to copy into the blog post. Any suggestions..maybe post them at the WIN forum ?



  5. Hi Bea,
    Do this….go into photobucket, right click on your image, you will see “properties” at the bottom of the text box. Hightlight the url, cut and past it here. (I did it above…messy, but it works:)

  6. or…on Photobucket, put the curser (pointer finger) on the photo, you will get a drop down menu. Highlight “direct link” and place that link here.

  7. Susan, it wasn’t the Direct Link I was having trouble with…I was trying to copy and paste the actual photo’s into the blog…I can do that on most forums etc., but for some reason they won’t paste here.

    So…will just do the direct link.


    The park URL…
