Sunday - .. So Many Photos.. Too Little Time!

"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever. . . it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything" - Aaron Sussman ===============================

I have to admit that Cooper always could do the saddest little face.. Thankfully he has grown out of the sad face stage a little bit.. I bet he could still pull off a sad one though.. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ What a busy.. busy day.. Everyday stuff to do.. always something to do.. laundry for a crowd.. someone to feed.. I think I might have lazy fever.. I have heard there there is no cure for it.. But that a nap might help! I haven't even looked into the possibility of that.. even I know better.. Have a great day!

I was just listening to some music.. it came on somewhere while I was surfing the web and so far I have been enjoying the different songs.. I always have a blue million things open at once.. and this music is coming from one of those blue million open now.. Today has been hot and we had a thunderstorm late this afternoon.. Sweet cooling rain cooled things off a little..I tried something new today and went on my very first jaunt as a mystery shopper.. let me tell you that it is harder than it sounds.. you have to approach strangers and ask questions.. You have to remember a great deal about several people in each location.. But I have got to tell you that it was a lot of fun.. so if you ever see me coming.. be nice.. I might be writing a report!... Thanks for stopping by to visit my world today.. I hope you enjoyed your stop here... I welcome comments so feel free to leave me one.. Have a wonderful day! Patsy
