Dances With Daffodils
I mowed the lawn yesterday and did some work outside while Cora worked inside. It was a good day. I finished the last book of the Percy Jackson series. I enjoyed it by the way, and if you want a fast read with a decent plot and fun time, I recommend it.
When I was in high school, we had to write a Beowolf-esque story. One that bragged about the hero's prowess in battle and his great abilities. Dances With Wolves, the Kevin Kostner movie, had not been out very long, so I chose to title mine, "Dances With Beowolves." I don't recall the grade I got, but I think it was higher than normal for me. I somehow managed decent grades in English, well, not counting Freshmen year, anyway. Anyway, that's what today's title reminded me of...sorry.
I took the camera out to record our daffodils. I did a little with paint shop and came up with these. The bottom one reminds me of the photos in a 1940s Kodak How To Take Photos book I have somewhere.
