Nice pics again Ax. One a side note again I remember you saying you were in Nam in other posts and you have some medical background. Were you a combat medic?

These are great pix. Got Macro?

Thanks Ovenbird: The real close-up ones frog, sprinkler head were taken with a Sigma 105mm macro lens on a sony alpha. Unfortunately the camera died after getting dropped one too many times and having the wife dump water on it accidentally.

She wants another sony though so I will be able to use the macro lens again.

I inherit the Nikon D300 which she thinks is too complicated so its a win-win. I love the D300 and since I started out with a film SLR that was completely manual, I like the control it gives me over exposure. My wife prefers a camera that you just pick up and shoot.

I'm seeing now, my Gt Gfather,possibly, came from the Ukraine also.
Talked to the group and others from there, and they said my name is very common in W.Ukraine. But not so here, GDad got here in 1917.
Interesting---Ax.

P.S. Are you stubborn too, Pep--;):)

i read most of the posts on your thread but almost missed this one. when i read it I knew I had it right off the bat but had to scroll down real fast to see if anyone else had already came up with it. I'm a big fan of Willie and the writings of that period. it just amazes me of how writing has evolved over time, especially poetry and the words themselves. I like the older stuff, real old, much more.

you owe me a ballantine ale and a gran marnier some day, which hopefully one day we'll meet and I'll collect.

I need to read a little Shakespeare again I think I could appreciate it much more now that when I was forced to read Romeo and Juliet and Hamlet in high school.

Mornin, Jeff and how are things?
Strange, we didn't have to read R&J in HS.

I like the Tempest one of Willie's works, also a good one --not Willie is Cyarano de Bergerac.Made a movie of it.

It was later years when I began Willie, enjoy it althoh some of it intelligible.

Posted a note to you on photo thread re: transferring pics from one thread to the other, it works.

You're kidding???? Couldn't you have let me a dream a bit first atleast? Especially on a wet day like today? The grape vine is hanging on provisionally, until it can be harvested and then will be lighter to fix up properly. I think I'll have a pizza for supper, it's too wet to even go into the garden and pick something, That sounds like a great excuse to me! :D
