To: Nobody

To Whom It May Concern,

I am leaving tomorrow night for an adventure. I am taking my sister with me. We hope to make it in one piece, and return the same. Our destinations are Lancaster, PA, and somewhere in upstate NY. Several others will be joining our venture from PA and will effectively liven things up. It's doubtful that I will post while away, but since there are no signs of readers as of late I don't think you'll mind anyway. I wish you all well, and will return with at least one story - I promise(let's just hope it's one formed from someone else's expense). Until then, I bid you farewell, and ask that you don't miss me too much.

Yours Sincerely,

Do me a favor...

check out my Mom's blog...http://thebarrseven.blogspot.com/ Leave her a comment. She doesn't believe me that ppl ever read it, so if you have great, and if not there's no time like the present!

Oh, and here's Letha...finally. I'm hoping to try to take some of my parents b/f summers over, but I'm rapidly running out of time! I'm not posting all of Letha's btw. You can find the rest on Facebook, or follow this link: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=141492&id=526240420&l=b2f7fdbc0a

On rain and hairspray

Have you ever been stuck out in the rain after having applied a little too much hairspray (or gel for some of you) that morning? It's not all that pleasant I must inform you - nothing quite like the taste of hairspray running down your face into the corners of your mouth.


Reminds me of youth camp actually…all those lovely days playing tug of war in the mud and rain - what's not to love?!?

Can't believe I'm not getting to enjoy that this summer. How time's change! Now it's my little sis that gets to enjoy these things, while I'm stuck here working. *insert sigh here*


I love the rain. And I'll deal with the hairspray. It's the work I wish I could quit. Oh to be able to sleep in until forever, and to really honor a rainy day by never getting out of my pj's and snuggling up with a cup of coffee and a good book! Why didn't I take advantage of the days back when I didn't need money to pay bills? Alas, it does no good to dwell on such things.


Instead I will write. I have a story I'm working on. It's one that I will probably never finish or share with anyone. I find that kind therapeutic for some reason…

That'll do pig...that'll do.

Thanks to Nichole I finally have some pics of my own mug to paste on here, instead of someone else's. We had fun, and I figure I should show you the fruits of our labor. So let me know what you think.

She was, oh, so patient and kind toward me(for the most part). I organized the outfits, props, shots, and handled the editing, while Nichole dutifully ran the camera, helped me juggle outfits and props, and all the while corrected whatever was wrong with a shot since I couldn't see them.

I rather enjoyed my new found prop - the old Polaroid, and now Nichole an I are excitedly thinking of other things we might pick up at a thrift store for just such a use.

Great fun was had by all...I think. (Oh! On a side note, during this venture we ignored lots of interest from across the street - there was a bar, so yelled, etc. ensued. I got everything from "Say cheese!" to "Don't jump!")

[F.Y.I. - I'm using a diff. font for my signature on these pics, because as obvious I didn't take them myself, so its not my personal font, but I am still "claiming" them. This is for copyright reasons, etc.(like ppl really want my pics!), and since Nichole isn't putting her name on them, I decided to use mine. Convenient, eh?]

Well, until my life "lives" up...or I just get bored...TTFN!

Meet Lenny...the newest member of the Barr clan! He is, as fairly obvious, a Guinea Pig, and a lesson to be learned about leaving Nichole and I alone for to long...

Basically we were that bored and decided that our house was seriously lacking in the pet department. See, at this point we only have 1 dog, 3 cats, 4 fish, and 10 chickens. (The four rabbits have escaped one by one, and are now terrorizing the neighborhood. Nothing like seeing cute little white bunnies in your yard but not being able to touch them.) Anyway, our reasoning was that we already had a pen for it, and the loss of the other pets created an opening for dear Lenny.

We have yet to give our parents the scoop on Lenny...thought it'd be more fun that way - for us. BUT...as we speak...er, I type...they are headed home. In fact, I just got a text from Mom saying they were in Indianapolis...hehehe.

Yet another Doris 'venture...

this time it was w/Jocilyn. I wanted to take some shots of her for fun, and because I wasn't able to do her senior pics like I'd hoped, instead Mom did them - I simply ran out of time. Anyway, I don't feel like loading all the pics onto here, so these are just a few, but to see the rest just go to: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=137369&id=526240420&l=801bcdfffe

Promised pictures of a kidnapping

Earlier today I twittered(yeah laugh if you want) that I was kidnapping my sister and that pictures might follow...so thought I'd just post several on here.

We just did a random photo shoot. I called her and told her that she had about ten min. til I reached the house and I was going to take pics of her in w/e she could throw together...boy is she good! She chose the pieces and I put them together. Let me know you're thoughts on the pics -- yes even the negative ones cuz I need them. Besides, I can discount them if I so choose...

Catching up a bit...

Last week I talked Dakota into spending some quality time w/his sis(me) and her camera(Doris)...he agreed once offered a dollar - *shrug* everyone has their price.

I've been playing around w/some editing, some of which I love, and some that I, well, don't.

Kota "working" on my car...

...Britt joining him - yeah I let her get that close to my car.

This was just a snapshot from the weekend...didn't really take many pics. The good ones would've been from when we went tubing, but I feared for Doris, so we don't actually have any of that. Sad...I know.

These last few are from yesterday - our first day of VBS. I may add more later this week.

Have a great week all!
