Ohhhhh- LOVE your suggestions. Gonna go take care of the potatoes in a little while . . . and put green beans on. As you can imagine, we Southerners have to cook our green beans a looooooong time b/f we think they are "cooked down" properly, LOL! DH laughs at this. He says the secret to "cooking Southern" is to just cook the hell outta everything!!!!

Thanks for the great menu suggestions.

OMGosh! Doorway - I missed this post! You guys!!! You found out about my secret life, LOL!!!!

Well - thank you all so much for the very kind comments! It so happened I had shot a photo at the beach that seemed to fit the contest, so I entered it.

Brian - I will have to look up my settings for that shot and post them. Photography is all trial and error and learning from other people's successes and failures. I still have a LOT to learn about this new camera. I was very intimidated by it at first. I used to shoot for newspaper and magazine "in another life" - and had not purchased a new camera since 1984 or 85. So I switched to digital and - whhoooo - learning curve!!!! But how neat to be able to shoot a lot and not waste film!!!

Thank you all for going and looking at it. That is an unretouched photo.

Is anyone having a fabulous day out there? Please tell me about it. I want to be happy for someone.
I feel so bolstered by everyone cheering my photo on - so I am having an unexpectedly happy afternoon!!!

I am sorry you have not had a good day.
