My name is Brenda Nelson and I live in Mountain Home, Arkansas, USA. My husband Larry ("lgnelson" on PB) and I have been married for 46 years - with 2 married children and 5 beautiful grandchildren (3 girls and 2 boys). I'm a Christian homemaker, who also did a morning radio program for 34 years - 3 hours a day of news, music and daily interviews. (Thus, the name "DJ Nana"). However, in June 2009, my husband and I both retired! And we quickly discovered that life was really just beginning!

Larry and I enjoy travelling and playing golf, singing together (we met in a college music group), riding our motorcycle across the country, and doing projects that make a difference in the world through groups like Rotary International, World Vision, and our church.

I hope that God allows us many more years to enjoy each other and His beautiful creation - carrying our golf clubs and cameras! I can't wait for the next great "shot"!

That was my first impression! If I could see the eyes I have guessed! :))

I LOVE this piece, Mx - but I'm totally mesmerized by the details in the nest itself! To my faves, you gifted girl!
Thanks so much Brenda - I am tickled pink!
It's a new technique I have learned - you paint your colour (mixed) onto your paper, let it dry, then take a clean brush with water - paint your twig line, then dab with a tissue - hey presto, it works all on it's own.
As I said to my sister, it's rather like water skiing - let the boat do the work - in this case it's let the water do the work, don't "try" to paint!

Oh, my goodness - I didn't realize this was the house you were living in! Holy moly - glad you're okay and hope you can get back in soon!
Yes, I live in a basement apartment and currently there are four renters who share a common space upstairs ( a couple and a single girl and a single guy ). The owner/landlady used to live upstairs; but she took a job and moved out of state last year. We were able to move back in on July 1st :), as the engineer feels it will be safe to live in during repairs. Repairs are supposed to begin tomorrow - Monday July 27th!!!

Wow - you really got hit! So sorry for your damage, but the earlier pictures show that it could have been worse for you! Thankful....
Yes, it could have been a lot worse!!! And we all are extremely thankful that nobody was home when it happened :))

My goodness - where are you going? Looks like a long flight - can't wait to see the photos! (And I adore Diana's voice - and envy her beautiful long legs!)
Final destination is in the last map. :-)

This was fascinating for me, so I imagine you were excited to see all the intricacies, TP! Thanks for showing us the setting, the piece, and the diagram of it's workings.
Yes it was great and the room steward was pleased to have someone interested in her exhibits to talk to!!!

Four outstanding shots here, A! The details are so clear, I feel as if I could touch the feathers! Love the third one!
Thank you Brenda. I had to get real close to him. :-)
