so here goes!  Last time we did it, some posted personal pics, others got photos off the internet that they liked.  It was fun, so let's do it again!

And thanks to Ketz for mentioning the idea of pictures in another thread.  I've been meaning to do this, but kept forgetting.

 

Here's how you do it when it's a photo on your computer:

1. Click on the image box in the Tool Bar right up there ^^^ (lookes like a green and blue computer screen)

2.  Click on the red and blue square at the end of the highlighted Image URL box.

3.  A new window opens, click on Upload (next to the green arrow, left hand corner of window)

4. Click on Choose File

5.  This will open up a window that will allow you to select photos off your computer.

6.  Once you have what you want, click on Upload, and when it's done, click Insert File.

7.  If all goes well, the image should show up then in a separate box.  You then click on the green Insert box in the left hand corner (on my computer I always have to expand the box to see Insert).  It then sticks your pic into the body of your post.

 

If you want to do one off the internet, it's really easy.

Just find the picture you want, make sure you have a URL that ends in jpeg or gif, copy the URL, open up the Image box, paste the URL into the box, then click on the green Insert button in the left hand corner.

 

PhilieG  had a great visual tutorial on this...if he can find it and repost, that would be even better!

We went to the pumpkin patch yesterday.  As far as my 9 year old is concerned, it's one of the "happiest places on earth"!  Got to jump in the hay, go through a corn maze, ride on a tractor, watch a duck race (his favorite duck, White Lightning, won), and of course, pick out a pumpkin.  And I got to get out into the country for a while, which I love.

 

Here's what it looks like in that area...

Your boy has a lovely smile AA, and the farm on the photo below looks surreal. I thought such bright red houses can only be found in Norway. Where exactly in the US was this photo taken?

The photo of the barn was taken in the Snohomish River valley, in Western Washington.  It's less than an hour away from Seattle, where we live.  I didn't take that photo, of course, and I think the colors are super-saturated.  So while it is indeed a red barn, it's not quite that vivid in reality!!  Hence, the "surreal" feel to the shot.

My hubby and I just celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary with an overnighter to Lake Tahoe.  

Here we are on a boat trip across the lake, and as happy today as we were 29 years ago. (see how my hair is growing back. YAY!)

Clean up well for a 2 time cancer warrior and a heart transplant patient, don't you think?

 

Hugs, Kathi

George looks awesome drumming!  Looks like he's having a blast.  So fun to see!

And Kathi, you and your beau are a very dashing couple.  You two look great!  Healthy and happy.

This is picture was the view from our table whilst dining at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant in Vegas last month.  For a little over a week cancer just did not exist for me, the surreal world of Vegas was my life.  The dinner was one of my favourite nights there.  (Thanks for the great instructions).

It's wonderful to put cancer aside for a few days and just enjoy life.

I love this time of year, when the leaves change.  Such gorgeous colors.

And YOU look great too!   Look at that smile!  Healthiest stage 4 appendix cancer survivor I've ever seen.

Sorry folks, this is the best I could do. Pictures of "us" are almost non-existent.

Ron & Karen on Wedding Day 1972, & sometime thereafter.

Robert, the product of our union, standing in my truck ouside our cabin.

Dang, my girls look squished. Picture was resized. And Robert isn't 7" tall, only 6'.

Luv,

Wolfen

they are both obviously lovely ladies.  And your son is very handsome too.  They take after their parents!

It's great that you were able to do one of these.  Seems like a fun way to celebrate your survival!

Yes it was very emotional.  

I was diagnosed on Oct 5th of last year and the race fell on my 1 year anniversary.  So yes, we celebrated with lots of happy tears.

That looks like a place I would love to be at the moment.  Hawaii?  California?

you are very lucky to have your own place there!

How big is your place?  Enough room for a CSN meetup??  Laughing

Just kidding (mostly)!

I wondered if a photo thread would lure you back.  We miss you!
