Picture Post!!

I am having a serious lapse in blog topics so I thought I would do a picture post...I've never really done one of these so bear with me! I think if I had gone to bed before 3:30 a.m. that maybe I would have some stellar ideas but alas, no. I AM excited because I got 12 comments on my Friday Fragments posts! Ok, all you big bloggers who get tons of comments can laugh now! I'll wait for you to finish.... :) It's exciting to me because I'm a fairly new blogger and that's the most comments I have EVER gotten! But now onto pictures! All of these are SOOTC (straight out of the camera).

This first picture is of the ginormous Oak Tree in our back yard that got struck by lightning....
A cool mushroom in our yard...glad I got a picture of it because the tree people cut down the tree it was attached to.

The next few are of Gidget. Since we don't have kids and Mr. Ski hates modeling I had to use Gidget as my subject while I was testing out my new gear. She's not the most cooperative model!
These are what a tree looks like that's been struck by lightning...

These are from when they were dropping the bulk of the tree...they had already cut off several branches...and man did it make a loud boom when it landed!
And if this ever happens to you, your yard will look like this....

This little one belongs to the guy who cut our tree down...he was so cute!
On that note, this concludes the picture post! Hope you enjoyed!


  1. The kid was cute, or the guy who cut the tree down? HA HA HA

    It makes me sad about the tree; so beautiful!

    And believe me, I have been blogging a long time and I am STILL thrilled when I get more than 5 comments, no kidding. So there will be NO laughing from me!

  2. The kid was cute...not the dad! haha! I was sad too about the tree...but relieved because that darn tree was keeping me up at night. You can't tell from the picture but it was split all the way down! SCARY! Mr. Ski has wanted to cut it down since we moved there...he hates raking...but I thought it was awesome until it got struck by lightning that is, now I sleep much better since it's down. I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets excited about comments! :) Thanks Kori!

  3. Great pictures. And here's a comment for a new blogger......courtesy of a new blogger:)
