Planck's Place

Welcome. If you are here, then more than likely it means you were invited. What is a blog you say? Well, it's a type of website run a bit like a news letter. I can edit and add things as often as I like. So in a way it's a journal online. I created this just to share with our family and friends across the miles. Check back often and add comments when you feel so compelled. Most of the photos are of Emily, but if you look often enough, you will catch the occasional one of Tony and I.

It's been a busy week, I haven't forgotten about the blog, just haven't gotten around to it. I have new photos to get ready and post, so come back soon! I am working on adding one of me, since so many of you are asking, sigh.... easier said than done, there really aren't that many of me out there. I need to work on that I suppose! Check back soon! ~Cyndie

Check out some of my photography from South Africa last year. I am just starting to go through the thousands of photos I took... (literally, I have 6 cd's full of images!) As I find some favorites and have time to play with them, I will post more here for you to see.... Africa Blog

Pass it along....

Yesterday I sent an email out to our friends and family that I have email addresses for. Some came back undeliverable, so I guess I don't have everyone's current addies! Please pass the link along to our family members and friends that you think might enjoy it! Thanks, and enjoy. ~Cyndie

Blackmail shot of 2005! OK Tony, is there something you need to talk about? Actually Emily was having blast dressing up with Daddy, It's not in focus really, but who could resist this shot, a once in a lifetime deal! (Luckily Tony doesn't have the password to edit the blog, tee hee....)

Happy hippie headband girl! Just had to shoot this because I can never get her to play with her hair. Today she was experimenting with headbands....

Little miss Millie, contemplating our fish in the pond disaster....

Today we can home to disaster. All but one of our fish in the pond were dead. Who knows why, the raccoons have been tormenting them, so maybe it was stress..... I cleaned out the pond and headed to a local fish store and bought 2 more koi. Cross your fingers for us! We'll see how long these ones make it. The last ones were just comet goldfish, the 19 cent a piece ones..... they lasted a year!

Grandpa Bill's Birthday

Yesterday April 30th was my Dad, "Grampie Bill's", birthday. We celebrated at their house. Gifts, the Gods must be crazy, and dinner. Grampie got lots of camera stuff to use on their upcoming trip to Africa.

Hey look, Mom's got that camera out again!

Helping out
