#FrameItFriday (week 35 season 5) I found this giant bullfrog settling in along the shore of Eel's Lake last week. To truly appreciate the full beauty of this gal, you gotta double click on the photo. I've named her Sandy. Sandy wiggled her butt, did some gentle yoga leg moves and tried to settle in for some bug collecting. I'm glad she stayed put and co-operated for me. That's the story on this week's blog photo now on to some other stuff that I've been thinking about this p
#FrameItFriday (week 27 season 5) Well looky here, if it weren't for the Canadian flag on her ball cap I'd swear #StellaCat has gone all Handmaid on us or perhaps both? Regardless of her "I'm going to get you for this mum" look, Stella is extremely grateful to live in a country that permits her to nap 23 hrs a day and get an hour off to eat, get brushed and watch birds from the safety of her screened in porch. We are all grateful and fortunate to live in the most amazing plac
#FrameItFriday (week 20 season 5) OMG they're back and so are all the fancy designer bug duds! In the photo I am modelling a fine outfit one must don in order to get from the house to the car. It's actually worn when you're wearing long sleeves and trousers and high rubber boots. I swear someone hit a switch somewhere that woke the super annoying black flies or whatever the heck they're called. It's supposed to be a scorcher today so shorts are on, t-shirt and only if I have
#FrameItFriday (week 6 season 5) Time flies and it's still winter. This week I find I've had enough of it. You get stuck and you struggle to be creative (at least that's the way I've been feeling like the past couple of weeks). I've dragged my camera around with me to every place I had to go to and took the back roads just in case I happen upon any of the "items" I have on my bucket list. I've been striking out left, right and centre. I trudged through the deep snow to the fo

#FrameItFriday (week 43 season 4) You've been asking, I've finally ceased procrastinating and put together my 4th annual calendar!!!! It's currently at the printers getting the artwork sorted and after my approval BAM, it goes to print! So, for all my regulars who've been patiently waiting at the sidelines, time to place your orders while supplies last. This is pretty much my only source of income for the year since no companies will SPONSOR me. (I know, pathetic right?) We'
#FrameItFriday (week 1, SEASON 4!) TAKE 2! (forgot to hit the 'save' button grrrr) HAPPY NEW YEAR! (YES, IT'S 2021 FINALLY) #StellaCat insisted I use this photo of her for the very first blog of the year and season 4 opener. She also had her agent contact me about putting together a 2022 calendar of her. So demanding and all before I've had my 2nd cup of coffee! She's telling me she has fans on this page and they're the ones insisting on a calendar of her. So for all you Stel
#FrameItFriday (week 51, season 3) This week, the week before Christmas in this the year of the horrible 2020, I bring you 2 photos of cats. 2 very special cats. I've been feeling like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day of late, so this week I've decided that instead of me writing endless blather and drivel I am reaching out to YOU. It's a free for all really, tell me your best story, show me your best photo, your fav song and share it in the comments below. If you're shy, send me
#FrameItFriday (week 46, season 3) Hey where are all my Scorpio calendar buying friends at? How do you like what I picked for you to look at the entire month of November next year???

*Don't forget the profits from the sale of these calendars are going to support a mental h
#FrameItFriday (week 44, season 3) I do believe I've taken a million steps since last Friday and I'm disappointed that I don't weigh 125 lbs because of having taken said steps. I haven't picked up my camera in a week. I'm suffering from digital withdrawal. I've only taken the odd iPhone shot (such as the one you see here). I see snowflakes falling outside my kitchen window and I have to make a grocery run shortly so I'm dragging my camera along with me and taking the back roa
#FrameItFriday (week 41, season 3) Thanks for your patience while I've been dropping hints about some sort of surprise coming from me. So here's the surprise, my family and I are relocating to the quiet countryside just north of Belleville next April (loooong closing, I know). This crazy covid year has given us the opportunity to reflect and re-evaluate what's important in our lives. Most important: family first and combine that with a certain someone is retiring at the end o
#FrameItFriday (week 38 season 3) I'll bet you this photo, that quite possibly this has been the craziest nerve wracking stressful week some of you have had in a long time. I know because I've communicated with a few of you and you've all told me what crap you've had to deal with this past week. So if you know me and my expertise at fixing things. You know my tool box contains a kitchen butter knife, a roll or two of buck store duct tape and tiny bottles of crazy glue (that a
#FrameItFriday (week 28, season 3) Holy my moly, may I just say to Mother Nature, "the banana bread has baked, time to turn the oven off!" As much as I enjoy being outdoors, this past week has not exactly screamed "get out and take photos". Asides from the few house photos my trusty camera has remained indoors languishing in it's bag in my air conditionied office/kitchen. Don't roll your eyes and sigh too deeply gentlemen but I'm sure you ladies out there will understand this
#FrameItFriday (week 27 season 3) It's bad enough trying to remember what day of the week it is but throw in a national holiday mid week and well, I don't know about you but Wednesday felt like a Sunday and now here we are it's Friday and it feels like a Tuesday! Not only that but I just wrote THE longest run-on sentence EVER! LOL. For clarification, it is FRIDAY (unless you're on the other side of the road then it's Saturday). I'll stop now. Sitting beside me right now is my
#FrameItFriday (week 24 season 3) #StellaCat was making me feel guilty because I haven't mentioned her in a bit. She's fine, just needy and wanty. Cats. So here she is on her make believe throne comprised of my camera bag and groceries. Shhhhh don't EVER her show her the Game of Thrones throne or she'll be wanting one of those too. Since my last kayak paddle I've left my 'yaks up on the roof of my car which makes it so much easier to find my car in a parking lot. I had plans
#FrameItFriday (week 15 season 3 or day 436? of isolation) Captain's Log Day 436? of isolation:
I may not be taking a lot of photos.
I may not have done that huge purge of the boxes in the basement...yet.
I may have not vacuumed the house this week
Pranced about on the sidewalk whilst wearing a plethora of rubber masks such as a pug mask, a unicorn mask, a zebra mask , a horse mask and last but not least a rooster mask for all of my neighbours to see.
#FrameItFriday (week 12, season 3) I can't believe I've felt so sorry for myself the past couple of days. Yesterday was a complete waste while I wallowed in self pity about the state of the world, being self isolated, not finding flour at the grocery store and worrying about our toilet paper inventory here at the house. I did save the life of some mis-matched socks I found in my dresser. If you don't get what that last sentence meant google the meme for it. I have read about
#FrameItFriday (week 7 season 3) Today it is a bone-chilling -16 celsius outside. Where I am it is anyhow. Just our weird climate sending out subtle reminders that yes it did see us out in our shorts (well not me, some other crazy guys) and that was a fluke now put on your long underwear 'cause winter is back. Oh and it's also Valentine's Day. Today. I'm loved and I love my family everyday so other than buying donuts (from Lamanna's Bakery ;)) with some heart shaped candy on
#FrameItFriday (week 5 season 3) WINNER, WINNER, Chicken dinner or as I say it:
Winner, winner canvas print!
Congratulations to Julie Chamberlain from Port Perry, Ontario you are the winner of one of my lovely 16"x24" canvas print! I've actually known Julie since high school (but sadly haven't seen her since that time) but via the powers of Facebook we have re-connected! Julie, if you must know is a hardcore Bon-Jovi fan, proud Mother of Cats, married to the love of her life
#FrameItFriday (week 4, season 3) Last night I had a late night meeting with my social media marketing manager as you can see in the photo. I think she showed interest in my photo page because a) her food bowl was empty and she was kissing up to me or b)she was really hoping I'd lay the iPad down so she could sleep on top of it or c) she wanted me to post and tag her so she can increase her online presence in hopes of going viral or finally d) ALL OF THE ABOVE because she's a
