Too much stuff and no where near enough time

I've worked on my BFAC all weekend.
Well, except for the time we were out buying plants and flowers for the side yard.
And nasty humid hot it has been yesterday and today.

Am I going through some kind of weird part of "THE Change"?
I break out in sweats at all the wrong time.
We were in Borders this morning.
Who broke out in a sweat?
I did.
Doesn't matter where... work, store.
Well, wait a minute.
It does matter.
It doesn't seem to happen here at home.

Old Friends ...

What a great day I had at Old Friends .... Thoroughbred retirement farm in Midway, KY.
I was lucky enough to be usihg Matt's 70-200mm 2.8 lens.
Yup, created a monster, he did.
And now I am preparing to get my own.

I'll start posting up some of my pictures.

GREAT enameled bead give away

Check this out ---

I had already been thinking about one of Barbara Lewis' classes for Philly.
Now I am drawn in and WANT to do it.

She is having a great give-away right now!

My Pookster

More Pookie



AC Race Course


I don't post many of my photo's.
The one at the top of the blog is mine, taken at Big Sur.
I can not get enough of Big Sur --wish I was rich.

Here are several others:

Adventure begins tomorrow.

I leave for an adventure tomorrow -- without my intrepid adventure partner, Colleen.
BIG frowny face.

I leave for Lexington for a three (3) day equine photography workshop.
And boy have the nerves struck deep this morning!
Not sure why, but all of a sudden I am shaky, nervous, and just all around anxious.
Everything but the car and the hotel are paid for.
And low and behold, when I went to pay registration fee via Paypal -- There were these "Paypal" dollars that I knew NOTHING about.
$200+ of them.
And that ate up some of the fee!

Probably my nerves stem from my shyness (yeah yeah yeah).
And my fear that people will find out that I don't know what I am doing.

The workshop coordinator, Matt Wooley, is so friendly. We've chatted a couple of times on the phone -- I feel very comfortable with him.

Going in to this like a SPONGE and am going to soak up as much knowledge as I can!
