Here's the original photo, which is adorable, too. We had a wonderful visit with Amber, Chuck, and Aurora. We're so glad they came.

Here's the original photo. Aurora felt that she should be holding her daddy's hand as well as her mommy's, so that's just what she did. I think it improved the picture, don't you?

Here's the original photo, from a website about Texas Medigap insurance. (Yep, a Texas picture for a Texas granddaughter.) We've been having a great time hanging out with Amber, Chuck, and Aurora and visiting relatives. And Joey is beside himself with joy - he just loves Aurora. Weather and time permitting, stay tuned for more...

Here we are re-creating a tennis photo at Jefferson Park in Hollywood. We had a great time. Robert found a nice new tennis ball for Joey and after we took the picture we hit it back and forth a while. And we looked marvelous!
Here's the original photo. But though tennis photos are doing fine, I'm not so sure about tennis. At Jacaranda, they turned the tennis courts into a parking lot. At a condo complex near us, the tennis courts are being used to store RVs. We had our choice of all four courts at Jefferson Park. And I had a heck of a time finding a tennis skirt! What do you think - is tennis less popular now than it once was?

This is the original photo. Here's my opinion: One, this couple obviously doesn't have a Golden Retriever or the husband wouldn't be wearing a black bathrobe. Two, it's silly that they're sitting so close together when they've got the whole table. And three, I think the whole thing is a bunch of malarkey! I've been blabbing to Robert non-stop for over 41 years and I haven't run out of things to say yet. Not that he's listening...

Here's the original photo, from an ad for Indiana Medicare. Gee, do you think these guys embarrassed Indiana Medicare as much as we just embarrassed Preston? No way. Happy birthday, Preston! You're the best!

Here we are at the ArtsPark in downtown Hollywood, re-creating a photo from a printable coupon offering senior discounts for appliance repairs. The coupon doesn't state how much of a discount seniors receive, but who cares? It's a senior discount!
This is the photo on the coupon. If you live in Wildomar, California and want to print out your own coupon, just click here.

Here we are re-creating a photo from an article called "Seniors sleep better when they follow a schedule." Personally, I think one of the good things about being retired is that you don't have to follow a schedule, but that's what it says.
This is the original photo. Actually, that photo shoot was very tiring. But here's another good thing about being retired - naps.

And here's the original photo. It's not hard to share stuff. You just poke your husband in the ribs and say, "Hey, can I use the View-Master now?"

Anyway, here I am re-creating the photo in our back yard. The purple flowers behind me are ruellias, which bloom every morning and lose their flowers every afternoon. I'm holding a new marigold plant, which will go in a pot on the back deck. I enjoy gardening and am often in this exact spot - without the sweater - pulling weeds.
Here's the original photo. I wonder where she really lives? I guess we're not meant to know those things.

Here I am with my new painting, re-creating a photo from the Humane Society of Utah, which has a great program offering seniors a chance to adopt a cat for free.
nnnnnnnnnnnnAnd here's the original photo. Thanks, Karen! It really made my day.
