Silver Blue: This angel was purchased (and augmented) by Brian Imes in 2014.  She normally resides on the mantel, but this year is resting under the tree.

I’ve got an angel… in my pocket…

By Silver Blue

Or, at least… in the garden across the street.

Processed through the watercolour filter, I think she’s quite exquisite.

I ordered a new camera lens tonight. 18-200mm, which will give me the wide angle I need, along with a decent mid-range zoom lens. A one-stop walk around. As much as one lens can be. It better be good, though. It cost as much as the bloody camera did. The difference between the men and the boys is the price of their toys, right? Well… Uh… I guess so. 🙂

Silver Blue, who believes in Guardian Angels, just not the way that you might think they watch over us.

The memories that are made to last…

By Silver Blue

…Continuing with the Christmas in July theme.

From December 1986.

The last time we really had a Christmas tree in my parents’ house.

The last time we had a real tree.

The last time…for a long time…that the season felt special.

As the song goes, “It’s not the presents under the tree, it’s your presence next to me.” Hard to believe we’d lose my grandpa in 1992, dad would have his heart attack in 2000, and we’d lose my grandmothers in 2004 and 2008.

Somehow, the “moment” and “memories” don’t seem a special as they used to.

But this was a memory that was made to last. So much so that I tracked down (on eBay) another angel like what is atop this tree (from my mom’s childhood) and bought it for myself.

Silver Blue, who says… “I am with you… because you remember me.”
