I found this picture about 3 weeks ago, way before the news of Amy Winehouse broke! I just thought it was kinda funny! But, it is a shame of her passing, & I have her cd "Back to Black" which I am glad I have! Anyways, if this offends anyone, I certainly will take it down, just thought if is a tribute to her maybe! Kinda has her make up, & 8 more lives! grin

Not only will you have to have the strength to "lift" pianos,
and tune them, you'll have to become a "trapeze artist"! grin

Look up, wayyyyyyy up! Then don't look down!

OK, time to make you jealous.... smile This is the view we had last week up at the cottage.... An evening sunset.



This one was taken by a crummier camera but still pretty...



My son and his girlfriend in my boat setting by the dock doing something, I'm not sure what. Getting ready to take the boat out though...
