Fun Photo Hunt Subject!...


Photo Scavenger Hunt #111 will be due on Sunday, June 10, at 11:00 PM EST.

Our subject this week will be:
  "animals - live or inanimate

Please note
this is an extended Hunt.  You will have ten days.  I gave you the subject so late this week and I wanted you all to have time to take your photos.  Deb, who coincidentally has a photo journal, suggested this week's subject.  You can shoot inside or outside animals - live, knick-knack, framed or stuffed.  Have a collection?  Use your imagination and interpret the subject as you wish!  Krissy and John love animals and haven't been able to get out much, and we have had very few takers on the last couple of Hunts, so how about we give them a lot of happy entries!  Please place your full entry URL
in the comments below and thanks so much for playing!  I hope you enjoy this week's Hunt for animals!

Crowning of Our Mother...

Kellen has asked that fellow Catholics do a "crowning of Mary" in a journal entry across J-Land today to honor Our Mother Mary.  If you would like a link to the other participants visit Kellen's entry.  This simple girl would like to honor and crown Mary in a simple way.

Hail Mary
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee!
Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.  Amen.

The Memorare
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
That never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection,
implored your help or sought your intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.
To you I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word incarnate, despise not my petitions,
but in your mercy, hear and answer me.  Amen.

Photo Scavenger Hunt #110 will be due on Sunday, May 27, at 11:00 PM EST.

Our subject this week will be:
something you want your spouse or child(ren) to get rid of"

came up with this subject and I think it sounds like a curious one that could be lots of fun!!  We haven't had many players in the last few Hunts so lets see those objects that are bugging you, that you don't like around, that are weird and wacky and would be headed for the dumpster if you had your wish!!  Please place your full entry URL in the comments below and thanks so much for playing.  I will post the submissions next Monday!

Prayers needed... Latest pet recall info...

Leslie, my friend with the service dog, is in need of prayer.  Brom is having a health problem.  Leslie brought  him to the vet's office because he was behaving strangely and seemed to be in pain.  The vet said it seems that he is having hip and back pain from possible arthritis.  They are anesthetizing him on Tuesday (so he is as still as possible) and doing x-rays of his back and hips.  If the arthritis is too advanced he will have to be retired as a service dog.  We're hoping it isn't as bad as they are anticipating.  Leslie needs prayers for Brom and I know she surely needs support and prayers.  I was told by Leslie that if he has to be retired as a pet she can not keep him and receive another service dog because of the housing she is on.  She can lose him!  Leslie said this is like asking her to give away her child or asking her to cut off her leg.  Please keep her and Brom in your prayers and, if you can, pay her a visit and leave her an encouraging comment.  Thanks so much!

Sharing news, a new journal...

Hi everyone!  I had a wonderful Mother's Day!!  My daughter and grandson paid me a visit and my son is staying we me and with Chelsea and Desi (they are across the street) for 2 1/2 months!!  WOW!!  That is a LONG visit!!  The longest he has ever had.  He's made it through a year of college!  Matt, I'm very proud of you!  My Dad and I picked him up from the Philadelphia Airport the other day.  It was a 13 hour day on the road.  My kids don't like to fly into the local airport because they don't like the small commuter planes and they don't like to pay the extra $200.  I don't like the long ride!!  LOL  We hit a lot of traffic and Pennsylvania has the WORST roads.  They are perpetually doing road work and signs are almost non-existent.  When they do exist they are poorly placed.  Oh my.  If you are ever visit PA, KNOW where you are going!!   When we were driving home and Matt and my Dad were talking I had noticed how strikingly similar the two of them were in looks and demeanor.  Matt has started shaving his head because he is going bald.  He looks a lot like my Dad did at his age.  He even sounds like him.  It's neat to see.  They get along well, too, and keep great company talking about things I don't even understand.  Matt is an intelligent one!

Oh, good news... Chelsea found out that she is having another boy. CONGRATULATIONS, Chelsea!!  She is due October 7.  She is starting to really show.  Awwwwww... another little one to be best friends with Josiah =).

Speaking of babies, my lovely friend
Merry is going to be a first-time grandma either tonight or tomorrow!!  Good news all-around!!  CONGRATULATIONS, Merry!  They know it is a boy!  His name will be Jonathan David.  She is so excited!!

On a final note, I have a very special friend in my life, Leslie, who has cerebral palsy.  Leslie has started a journal about her life with her service dog, Brom, who is a black lab.  She has done her first entry and I would love if some of you would help her feel welcome.  I have not taught her how to put in pictures yet, so I am putting in pictures of her dog here in this entry.  I am sure she will soon share loads of photos of her wonderful dog in her journal as well  as stories of her relationship with him.  Brom is the most special dog I have ever met!!   He has a gentleness that is incredible and is wicked smart!!  Josiah loves him!!  He squeals when he sees him (as well as Leslie) and Brom allows Josiah to pull his hair and ears and tail.  So, if you are able, please
visit Leslie
and welcome her.  Thanks!!  I hope everyone is enjoying there week!!!  Hugs from me to everyone! xox
