Broken record

Remember in the old days when we had record players? Remember when they would get a big scratch in them and would skip and say the same thing over and over and over? Well, that is what I feel like. Still no news. Seems that is what I have posted here nearly every time over the past ELEVEN months. Yes, it has been 11 months since we were LID with China. Again...still no news.

In the meantime, I have discovered Photoshop Elements 5.0. This is the scaled-down version of Photoshop and is for dummies like me who can't handle all the bells and whistles that Photoshop has. I have been having a lot of fun learning how to use it to enhance photos. Maybe by the time we get Sadie, I'll be a pro at it! Actually, by the time we get Sadie, there will probably have been six new versions of it!

Here is a "before" picture I took of Josh (my nephew). This is what it looked like straight out of my camera.

And, here it is after I enhanced the eyes and teeth. Okay, so it looks a little Dracula-ish. Remember, I'm still learning.

Here is a close-up of his eye. Is that cool or what?
