  17. Old friends, you can just pick up where you left off, as though it was yesterday. My longest times friendship , began in 1954!!! Yes, 60 years ago, almost to the day, 1st February, as we started classes at High School. We now live about 6 hours apart, so email and phone .Let that knee heal, grandchildren can make happiness just by being, and one super photo, Greetings, Jean.

  25. How fun that you were able to get out and take some photos. They were wonderful. Those "pops" of red are a welcome sight during the dreary winter months. How nice that you and your old friend have been able to reconnect. That is always fun.

  31. I'm glad your knee is healing. Take care of it... I found out that knees are really important parts of our bodies. Where would we be without them?

  32. Color this time of year is definitely hard to find. My granddaughter, Rio, just started the hugging and kissing thing as of late and I am so happy about that. She's 16 months old today.

  38. Glad that your knee is doing better!! And hugs from Grandbabies are awesome.
    A true friend is one that you pick up where you left off without skipping a beat!
    Lovely little female cardinal!! Don't push your knee - take your time!

  39. Gorgeous shots and beautiful capture of that bokeh on the first shot especially. I love your mama cardinal also. I did some shots of a female cardinal this weekend with my rental lens, and really did not appreciate how lovely they are. There is another 80/ 400 mm lens that looks wonderful which is much less expensive than the one that I had. I am going to try out renting this one next and see how it compares. Glad your knee is better. No fun when you can't get out to do your photography. Blessings from Texas!

    Blessings, Aimee
