I hope everything goes well with your mom.

Seriously, your pictures are beautiful. I think I might need to recruit you to teach me how to use my camera. I've had a Nikon D60 for a couple of years now and have no clue how to use it. I actually would love to upgrade but refuse to do so until I learn how to use what I have.

Fantastic pictures of the ELP and Wishes! We once watched Wishes from th behind the castle and it was so weird watching from there. Many of the firewords are set off back behind Fantasyland.

I hope everything goes well with your mother. Sending prayers your way!

Hope everything goes well with your mom today. Those are some great Wishes pictures. Wish I could do that.

It looks like you had a wonderful evening. I have never eaten Cali Grille but will have to in the future. The view is worth it.

Love your pictures of the GF at night. I can't wait to try the new DVC resort when it is done.

You have me wanting to stay at OKW and it really was not at the top of my list. Jeremy would love that pool.

WOW! I never bother taking pictures of fireworks because I have a point and shoot and it never works and then I get frustrated because I haven't watched the show either....ok, I'm good now, rant over! But yours....once again, stunning!

I was humming Wishes music in my head while viewing your fireworks pics! So much fun!!

I have no idea what a cardioversion is (I assume it has to do with the heart), but I hope all goes well for your mom today.

I always stick to a mismatched tree, I like things a little chaotic

He emerged from the man cave? To tell you about the half time show? He must have really liked it then.

It was good. It was very professionally done. I don't know how she could have sung all that stuff. I'm sure the backing track helped.
If you had heard him griping a few days prior about why they dragged Madonna out of "retirement" instead of someone "that people actually like" you can believe that he really was impressed. I did watch the show on youtube on Monday - it really was excellent.

I want to play the guitar for the first two and I'm just not good enough for all that finger picking on the Lambert song. I can finger pick, but I can't get the timing right. I've been working on it for hours with a little bit of improvement. Oh well!
Hmmm wonder if you would youtube one of your performances???Do you facebook your performances? ? I see you on Kathy's facebook (there are only 2 Mary Ellens!)- send me a friend request if you like.

Your wishes photos are awesome!!! We were on Dumbo last year during Wishes one night - it was cool but strange to literally be in the middle of the fireworks. It was like watching a tennis match - first we'd look one direction, then the other. Joe tried to video tape it but Ithink he was getting disoriented going back and forth

I will keep you & your parents both in my prayers. Hope all goes well!

Thanks for all the good wishes for my mom. Her cardioversion was successful and she left the hospital in a normal sinus rhythm meaning she is no longer in atrial fibrillation. I sure hope she stays in a normal rhythm. She was able to go home today, so I did not have to spend the night with my dad. I am home now, but I'm not sure I am going to get to replies tonight. Just wanted to check in!

It's good that your mother is doing well.

Did you use a tripod? Those pictures of the fireworks were very sharp & crystal clear.

I have pictures of the ELP from back when. I used 1000 speed film, remember film?!
