A fierce warrior approaches
His face all blue in chalk
With eyes that tell the story
And blazing bright red locks

Oh look, I see a glimmer
Of recognition lit
It's Micah my dear nephew
Now where's that make up kit?






Fun comes in all colors of the rainbow.

Here is little Lynnie -
My sweetheart of a niece
With fiercely painted hands and feet
Dark purple in the crease
A growling hunter stalking
A creature on the prowl
Away she runs with shrieks of glee
We have to find a towel!
That blue chalk DID NOT COME OFF!

Your poems are so funny. I wish Micah was home tonight to see the pics. He would love them. He is spending the night at his friends and Lynnie is sleeping. Cutest kids along with Jacob and Josh. :) I am a little biased on that topic.

Jeff@Sal - Sally - love to see your smiling face (okay, so it is in my mind)... I can hear you laugh too :-) Hi Micah, Lynnie - and JACOB!!!! Oh, HI ERIK!!!

soe: Happy day to you. I think of you whenever I hear German.. did you know there is another Deutshlander in the form of a peguin that hangs out over there in Island called Minka... whom I'm quite fond of. What is it with German girls migrating to Island? :-)

TC - 3D? You must be thinking of a different movie... take those funny glasses off, will ya?

Anna-lamma-zanna - yes, we are home this weekend except for this next few hours when we go out to see the first movie in years: Stardust starring Clair Danes and Robert DeNiro.


Minka - HA HA! The skin DID peel - and the blue ring around the bathtub was quite unsightly...

Terry, just doing a little catching up. These pictures are just amazing as I am sure are the kids in them. Great poetry to accompany. Really, there is something so pure yet primitive in these pictures (I mean that as a high compliment to the photographer who captured these shots).

Anyway, just a quick note and I'm off to dreamland.
