My hand is feeling better, so I'll try to get back to leaving love (I'm so far behind) and get some layouts done. Went on a cruise on the Hudson River Saturday and I caught sight of a Bald Eagle. Managed to get a photo of him, but I was so far away even using my zoom he was far away. I'll try and enlarge the photo and see what happens. Even got a couple of photos of some Blue Herons.

    Can't wait to see the pictures! Glad your hand is feeling better, but don't do too much to make it hurt again!

    Well, I played moving lady and moved my bureau, printer cabinet, and desk. Had to take out all of the drawers move the furniture and then put the drawers back in and of course now my hand hurts like heck. All of that to be able to get to my a/c unit to clean out the filter. I guess I'll never learn.

Just popping in to say hello to everyone. I've been having lots of trouble with my hand and so I needed to stay off the computer for a while. Going to the orthopedist tomorrow to find out, hopefully, why my pointer finger still locks on me. So I've been staying away from therapy and exercises at home. Don't want to do anymore damage to my hand. Will check back in again later.

    Hope the doctor can sort out the problem. So frustrating for you.

Went to the garden to see the Corpse Flower. The line was soooooooo long, that the wait time was about 2 hours. I looked at Ricky and said, "forget it." So we didn't see the flower in person after all. It was too hot to stand on line for that long of a time. And I can't stand that long due to my sciatica. So we just walked around a little and headed home for dinner.

    That's a bummer, but I wouldn't have waited that long either!

As I mentioned earlier, the Corpse flower is blooming at the Botanical Garden. Ricky and I are going to pop in and take some photos of it before we go to dinner tonight. Hope to get some nice photos of it. I'll let you gals know what it smells like. Should be interesting and hopefully not too stinky.

The Corpse Flower is at the Botanical Garden. It was supposed to have bloomed this past weekend, but it didn't. I just checked the Corpse Cam and it still hasn't bloomed. Once it blooms, it only lasts about 24 to 36 hours and smells like rotting flesh, hence the name Corpse Flower.

    It's starting to bloom. But I don't think I'll be able to get to the garden today. It's pouring rain right now. If it stops I might go and get some photos.

It's 6am and I'm awake. Fed the cats and so I thought that I would drop in and say 'Good Morning'. My new Canon Rebel T5 EOS 1200D arrived yesterday and so I'm anxious to start to play with it. Came with two lenses: 18 to 55mm Macro lens and 75 to 300mm for my zooming in close to my subjects. Going to the Zoo today and hopefully it won't rain. Hope to get some nice photos.

    Ricky and I got caught in the torrential downpour at the zoo. Found a safe spot to get out of the lightning's way. With all of those trees around, it wasn't easy. Soaked to the bone.

    We got that in NJ, too! I ran to my car and as I was sitting there I couldn't see through the rain and my car was rocking back and forth from the wind. It was wild!

Went to Occupational Therapy yesterday. The arthritis in my right hand is bothering me, causing the joint around my pointer and middle fingers to stay swollen. Need to ice it more often at home. Moist heat before doing my exercises, ice after exercises.

    Take care, Carol, these things take awhile. Hang in.

    did they mention Voltaren gel? It's a topical NSAID that can really help with arthritis pain. sending healing thoughts your way!

    Thanks for your good wishes ladies. I'm doing the best I can, but I do overdo it at times.

I just heard that another police officer has been shot and is in critical condition. This happened in Ballwin, Missouri. What is wrong with these people going around killing people. But, Congress let's not worry about taking the semi automatic weapons off of the streets. Unbelievable. Prayers going out to all those killed and/or wounded.

    Don't blame Congress. Those guns are out there, the bad guys aren't going to turn them in. Wish there was an easy solution, but there isn't. Prayers for Dallas.

Left some love for you ladies, but had to stop as my hand started bothering me. I've been doing hand exercises at home and I guess I over did it.
