April 24, 2009 The new camera gets tested
I decided to buy a new digital SLR camera to complete my collection.  It is the new Olympus E-620 12 megapixel 4/3 offering.  Now I am all set for our planned vacation to Yosemite next month.  Here are a few test shots.
              
Pictures are of the camera collection (new camera in the middle), our horse shoer Adam, and a few flowers in our park and, of course, Bucky ready to catch the ball.


SNORT, BUCK
              
We let the horses run and buck for a while before we get on.

April 12, 2009 Easter in colusa
I joined the fanily in Colusa for the annual Easter picnic, put on by Sal and Kersten.  It was a beautiful spring day and there seemed to be many more kids than in years past.  The two family groups still hang out separately but enjoyed the pot luck.  It would be nice if we could devise a way to get the groups to mix a little more.

              
              
After the picnic Janine, Dad and I met Mom at the Woodland hospital to watch the clock strike midnight (and more).  Mom wasn't feeling well but was able to go home the next morning.  The doctor said she probably suffered a minor stroke.  A few days later she was back to normal and feeling chipper.  <WHEW>


The garden gets started.  We built planter boxes and filled them with dirt, then got busy painting rocks to add a little color.  There will be more pictures of the rocks after they get placed into the garden.




Rainy day crafts, Linda works on new bridles.  Our horses are the best "dressed" horses on the ranch.
