An Orchid for My Friends

Photographed 11/06

Time has come and I must say farewell to good friends. As the earthly bonds are slipped, never again to feel the warmth of a sunny day, the cool wetness of the lake or the bitter cold of a snowy morning I am at peace with this. It’s with the deepest sadness I bid you farewell not to be reunited in this lifetime. I leave you an orchid in remembrance.

You have always been by my side, ready to aid me at any time. You will never be replaced and forever missed. I will always think of you with the fondest of memories. It's so true that we never realize what we have until we have lost it. There is no sweetness in this parting, only sorrow.

What's Been Going On

A Greeting Card

What's been going on lately? Well, here it is. I'm still confined to the wheelchair for four more weeks (not the news I was hoping for).

Sue was gone on business all last week but is home all this week. She seems to be averaging 2 to 3 days a week in Minnesota. This should cease by the end of the year once everything is decided and in place.
Another Card Front

As for me, I've been working on making things for the craft show I'm going to December 2nd. It' be my first time trying to sell my photos at something like this. I don't know what to expect but thought I'd give it a try. I'm taking a variety of prints some unmatted, some matted and some framed.

I've also printed some cards with different images I took (post, note and greeting cards). I think they will do well because they're inexpensive but then so are my photos. I'll just have to wait and see what happens.
Bird Note Card

As you can see I'm still shooting birds and local North Georgia barns and such. I'm working on a series of covered bridges in Georgia too. I'm trying to get them during the different seasons so I've got a long way to go on that one.

The remainder of my time is spent seeing doctors, getting over the flu, going to dialysis (now 4 days a week) and most of all loving Sue & Miss Kitty.

Forsyth Co. Barn

Just a great barn. I love the Fall-colored vine wrapped around the tree (you can see it better in the larger version). This place looks so peaceful to me.

Regards to all,
