Getting To Know You...

I've really been remiss about something that I meant to mention to all of you for at least a week now. One of my "blogger buddies" -Gene Bach - a fireman from out in northern California has set up this little "get acquainted" theme thing as a means for all of us to get a little more familiar with each other and our surroundings too.

Read the instructions posted below here and if you think you'd like to participate, sign up below too. I sure as heck am no great shakes as a photographer, but I do figure I can find some pictures from where I live that I can post here. After all, if I think it's so pretty here, I darned sure better be able to back up my claims somehow, don't 'cha think? Besides, it'll be fun to see what others post about their home turf too! Look at the beautiful scenery we'll all get to see and it won't cost a penny for gasoline. Now, how's that for some incentive?!!!

Let's Get To Know Each Other

I would like to take a minute and build upon the warming the world through friendship idea that many bloggers recently participated in. We post on our blogs, get replies and post on other people's blogs, and over the course of time start to get to know each other a bit. We can guage the personality of another blogger through the words they type but wouldn't it be nice to get a little insight into what they really see when they look out their wondows? I was thinking we need to try and do something about that, so I decided to try and do something visual that we could all participate in. Here's how it'll work:
1) On Saturday, October 20th, let's all make a post featuring pictures of where we live.
2) Try and take at least 10 photographs of your surrounding area and postem on your blog.
3) Make SURE you include a description of what each picture is. Give us as much detail as you can.
4) Sign up for the link here, and place the links to the other participants on your page.
5) Comment on this post sayng you'll participate and I will include those links in the body of this post so that all you'll have to do is copy them and paste them onto your blog.
Sound simple enough? I would love to see some pictures of whereever you live and I'm sure there are others who are of the same mindset. I'll leave this post up as a stick until then so make sure and sign up and start taking pictures!

Looking forward to seeing your surroundings- this is a great idea.
I'll have to see if I have time to get out and about with my camera before I sign up.

Hi its me again- just read the comment you left me- yes I heard of Meadowwood it was proabaly 20 minutes from where I grew up and 40 minutes from the house I posted-
but what I found ironic is that my parents grew up near Indiana Pa, in Carroltown (closer to Patton) and Hastings (close to Spangler)
as you were just blogging small world.
