A6 Animals At Play

This is only meant to be a joke! But it fits a theme for my photo challenge so I am going with it! We have two dogs that think they are little people. When I am in the studio setting up for a shoot they like to follow me and try to get me to take their photo. They always go straight for the ottoman… When I tell them to sit down and smile I really think they know what I am saying! For me and my dogs that is just one of the ways we “play.” I thought I’d show you a photo of each of them “At Play” with me in the studio this week!

This is Louie!

This is Louie!

Louie always tilts his head to the side just a little bit. It’s his go to pose. And Lola can be a real glamour girl! I had my box of silk flowers out as part of a shoot I was planning. I was giggling because I told her lay down and she let me lay several of the flowers around her. She wasn’t thrilled about it but she knew that she couldn’t leave until I got a shot! I can’t help it, they make me laugh…Glamour Dog

Next Years Challenge

This years 52 Week Challenge is quickly coming to an end! Just a few short weeks to get all caught up… I know we are all having the same problem trying to come up with a photo for those themes that we have avoided all year long! We are all in the same boat on this one! Don’t feel bad if you have to use an idea that someone else already tried! It’s ok! This is just for fun and we don’t want anyone to feel discouraged. Even if you use the same idea your photo isn’t going to be exactly the same!

Mary Nell, Patricia and I have been working on finishing up the theme list for next year. We have some great ones!! This week we will pick a time and place to have our year end luncheon so keep an eye out for that announcement. Also, if you know anyone that might be interested in joining in on the next challenge let us know. We are going to set up a time and place to help newbies build a page and learn how to maintain it. Anyone who feels like they need a refresher on any part of wordpress your welcome to join us.

You don’t have to live in our area to join in! If you are someone who follows our photo challenge and would like to participate just let me know! The more the merrier…

Now get busy taking photos!! Time is almost up! According to my count today you should be posting your 46th post if you are all caught up!

51. A Bag Full

For my “A Bag Full” theme I chose to show and tell you about a special group of ladies that I met when I lived in Boquete Panama.  The group was started by my friend Brandy Gregory. Brandy and I first met when we did a special project in the Camarca (Indiana Reservation) of Panama called Green Summer.  I had heard about Brandy not long after I moved to Panama but hadn’t had the pleasure of meeting her until we found ourselves in the middle of nowhere together.

She started a knitting group in Boquete Panama that meets weekly. The ladies use donated yarn to knit warm blankets, booties and hats for the Ngobe Bugle indian babies. Over the years her group has grown and grown to include not only expats from the states but also Panamanian ladies and their children. Brandy’s group have knitted and donated several hundred blankets now to the very poor all over the Comarca.

Yarn is very hard to come by in Panama. And when you do find it it can be very expensive. Each time I visit Panama I always stuff all the extra spaces in my luggage with yarn to take to Brandy and her group. On my most recent trip last week I took yarn that I purchased as well as yarn that my friend Weezie donated. I was lucky enough to be in town when the ladies met. I gave to them A Bag Full of yarn and they in turn gave me a heart filled with Joy.
