Friends are the pillars on your porch. Sometimes they hold you up, sometimes they lean on you, and sometimes it’s just enough to know that they are standing by.
A true friend is someone you can disagree with and still remain friends. For if not, they weren’t true friends in the first place. – Sandy Ratliff
A friend is someone who thinks your a good egg, even though you’re slightly cracked!
Born in Scotland, married, mother of three grown daughters and have 7 beautiful grandchildren. I live in Manitoba, Canada, one of the prairie provinces. Most of my scenery is from those areas, although I do live close to the eastern lakes area of the province and visit my favorite parks often.
My husband and I have been married 44 wonderful years, and travel quite a bit, usually within Canada and the United States. So you will see a mixed bag of shots from both countries.
I love photography, camping, traveling, crafts, flower gardening and music. I’ve been taking photographs most of my life, upgrading to the newest cameras as they came on the market. Now with digital, I am having the time of my life. I’ve had photos published in Canadian Wildlife A Magazine of the Canadian Wildlife Federation in November/December issue in 2007 and the September/October issue 2008. I’ve also had photos accepted to Trail Canada and Ocean Treasures.
