I wish my hair would pick up the light like that! And I love the look on your face, you're so fresh :o)

PI said...

Kath: just look to the right. A lot of water has gone under the bridge since then.

Kim Ayres said...

You should have a few more modern photos of you up on the site too, at

PI said...

Kim: I'm proud of my old photographs as by and large they were first rate photographers. It's an irony that now - when I need all the help I can get - I only have access to amateurs and believe me my family - with one exception - have difficulty getting one's head in let alone taking a flattering photo. However as the story progresses I will use more up to date ones and you can see me - warts and all.

Warts? I don't think so - you were beautiful then and you are now.

Re your question: I download photos to my hard drive and then I open Picasa and it picks them up automatically. If I have titled them when I put them in "My pictures", that title shows up on the left side of the screen in Picasa. It isn't a foolproof way to find them, but it helps. I hope that helps you. If not, let me kno0w and I'll think about what the problem might be.

My problem lately is that since I changed to the new blogger, I cannot blog directly from Picasa, which makes me sad and mad too!

Foster Dogs said...

Wow, beautiful photo! Black and white photography is so neat. Good luck driving! Here via Michele's.

Moogie said...

This is a lovely photo. I agree with Kenju...you still are beautiful.

PI said...

Foster dogs: thank you on both counts.

Moogie: you are very kind:)

Love this picture Pat...! I know some people are wanting to see pictures of me now...But, I am interested in my History, and not how I look now! (lol)...Not thrilled with how I look now, at all....And I am just beginning to appreciate the past....Maybe it is the age I am at, BUT, I love seeing and reading about your History....
Much Good Luck with the driving, Pat.

PI said...

Thank you Naomi I couldn't agree more about how we look now. I'm wondering id e were born in the same year. I was born in the same year as Old Horsetail Snake aka Gene Maudlin although he had the nerve to be born a few months later:)

FOUR DINNERS said...

Flippin' Eck! I bet he passed yer just for gettin' in the same car as him!

Bob-kat said...

Oh Pat, what a wonderful photo of you!

Wishing you lots of luck with the rfresher driving - sounds like you are doing very well.

Thanks also for you kind comments recently about my mother and all the other things going on in my life at the moment. They were most appreciated.

Michele sent me to say hi which is good as it's about time I visited again!

PI said...

4d: I didn't actually take a test although he said I would have passed it. But I think he was being encouraging.

PI said...

Thanks bob-kat. Lovely to see you - at least you don't have to travel far:)

'B' said...

Hi there,
Oh such a glamorous shot...
When was it taken, yesterday??

Bernie

PI said...

Hi Bernie! It was taken before I became a Mum and Grandma - in the fifties.

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Hi there Pat...Just wanted to stop by and tell you I have a new post up about my bookshelves..BUT, there is a picture of me from a l-o-n-g time ago...(lol) It's kind of fun!
Just read that the Sun is out there...HOORAY! It looks like I am here from Michelw's and I am, but I didn't follow you!

PI said...

Naomi: blow the ironing - I'm coming over:)

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

LOL, LOL...in fact PP was partial to me....But his wife was there as well as my father! (lol) But there was a definite spark....! I will eventually write some more about PP...I have some slides that need to be transfered or whatever, before I can show them....! Thanks for coming by.

PI said...

Ha ah Naomi! just as I thought. I'll look forward to more:)

john.g. said...

How else does one wolf whistle down a P.C. ?

PI said...

Gee thanks John. I am a little distrait trying to renew my Norton Anti virus and they have changed the system and I'm -------!

kenju said...

Pat, we posted at the same time at Michele's, so she sent me back to tell you!

PI said...

Hi Judy! I was going to do another post but I've got problems with Norton's subscription so it will have to wait 'til Monday.

SpanishGoth said...

You look, well, simply, enchanting - again.

No norton, try Zone Alarm - just a tip

PI said...

Thank you Gothy! I have actually had an email form Symantec so will give them a second chance.

zoe said...

just beautiful - please don't tell me that you were a driving instructor as well - you'd be married several times over by now!

PI said...

zoe: no I haven't been a driving instructor. Yet.

Sam, Problem-Child-Bride said...

Kath has it spot on; fresh - fresh and utterly beautiful.

PI said...

Sam: the kettle...
