I Heart Macro - EEEK!

I am trying something new today, linking up to Lori at Studio Waterstone today for I Heart macro: close up photo fun for macro makers and the camerologically challenged - which certainly includes me!

Anyone that knows me will be floored that I actually took this picture.  I still feel like I have things crawling on me (I HATE spiders) but this one has been putting a web up every day and I feel like anything that posseses that much patience should be recognized.

I was mowing the lawn last week and had to go around the web, it had the backyard blocked off from the front yard.  There was no way I was actually getting close enough to take the web down.  ick.

Here is some fuzzy caterpillar love for you to take away the icky spider feeling:

No Jewelry Today

Every generation has something significant happen, and the people from that time will always remember exactly where they were and what they were doing when they found out what was going on.  My parent's generation will always remember where they were when Kennedy was shot.  I think that I will always remember that moment at work when April came up to me and said I think we should exclude New York from calls, someone just told me that a plane flew into the towers at the WTC.   I had just been to New York for the first time in June of 2001.  I have pictures from the Statue of Liberty that show the towers, and the beauty of the NY coast line.  I think taking that trip made it much more real for me, thinking about how I had just been there.  I can't even imagine how much worse it was for people that actually lived there.
