Playing In photoshop and otherwise

 Playing in photoshop with picture of my new Pooh Bear.  He looks a bit like the soon to be Ex-senator Duffy.
 This is a frame grab to produce a still shot from a movie I accidentally shot of Steve's Car.  I will never be able to figure out how to do that again.
 The wooly beastie at the museum . . . a new photo.  The mamoth is in a new setting at the museum.
 Geum in my garden a year or so ago.
This is a photo from a few years ago.  We were in Chemanius in the Japanese area of the town.  Although this is not very Japanese garden-ish, I love the colors and the the token gate.  

We have been in a drought for about a month and a half.  We are suppose to get about 2.5 inches of rain over the week end, starting tomorrow!  Cone on rain!  We really need it.

I have harvested about 3 dozen figs from our tree, and there are a few more out there yet.  I am making soups for the winter.  The little freezer is slowly getting full.  

I am slowly getting photos from our trip done up and have decided that I must send family photos by email, after all.  There is just too many to do up.  Must send to Deanne and especially to Rose - -   Especially the bustle dress!  Will do up the rest and upload them to Megashot if I can.  Version 2 is going to be fantastic when they finish it.  I should be able to load to Version1 as I get them done. 

Winnipeg has recently had about 80mm of rain in a short time and the city was flooding, with power outages from the high winds.  Calgary had snow, and even more snow in the higher elevations.  B.C. is burning, and had an earthquake in the St. John area from the fracking going on there.  Here is a link to a Huffington post about it:
this one:

The stock markets globally have been going crazy lately, but seem to have stabilized in the last couple of days.  China seems to be in economic trouble, not to mention Greece is joining Moaning Myrtle in her toilet habitat.  Isis is causing havoc in the mid-east and refugees are flooding Europe to escape from the brutality.  Seems like the whole world is gone crazy.  But can you imagine how the people who lived during the world wars felt? Their world, too, was gone mad; and they did not have the bombardment of the global, day by day, face paced news that we get now.
