Jul 04 9:09pm @15.1.9 Can you see both of the pictures and both butterflies in this picture Buzz?                        1.                                                       2.
Jul 04 8:59pm @15.1.8 LOL!!  Thanks! Yes I see them, and they really are beautiful. The yellow color in their wings against the dark color makes them look like they are trimmed in bright gold. So shiny and bright. Just...
Jul 04 8:45pm @18.2.4 "..." However, as long as there are bigoted people in the WH and our Congress it will likely continue to be postponed indefinitely. 
Jul 04 8:43pm @18.2.3 "..." Exactly. 
Jul 04 8:34pm @21.1.1 Thanks Buzz. I like the word 'dreamy', as I was trying to get a kind of supernatural look to it, and the woman is a Shaman conducting Spiritual ceremony.
Jul 04 8:29pm @22.2 Wow! How fun! There is a falcon that comes around my building every now and then. It's so beautiful, so majestic as it sits atop the trees and looks down at everyone. I can always tell when it's...
Jul 04 4:45pm @21 As promised.......here is a post to start the weekly posting of my creations of Native American women. Some many of you may have already seen from prior posts:
Jul 04 3:03pm @12.1.3 LOL!!  However, there are too many to post here all at once. So I will post one for you each week so you can save them and collect them to enjoy.
Jul 04 2:56pm @18.2 "..." But...when will Native Americans see any justice?  It cannot be justice for all until that happens. 
Jul 04 2:53pm @20.2 WOW!  That's a very nice catch! And I see why the call them a large mouth.
Jul 04 1:16am @16.1.3 I went through a whole gambit of frame styles and colors before settling on the oval. I think that the oval frame and type of texture of the artwork itself fits the overall appearance of the image....
Jul 04 1:04am @16.1.2 Thanks for the critique Mac. I did want to add aging to the image, and a bit of old fashion look as well. I had to play with the arrangement and blending of the background and primary subject in...
Jul 03 8:37pm @17.1 Thanks Buzz. The treatment of the image was something different I have been wanting to try. I'm glad that you like it.  (smile)
Jul 03 10:40am @13.1.4 Whew!! Yeah...that would be 'iffy' at best. Glad you stayed safe.
Jul 03 10:16am @16 Here is one for my Friday contribution...something different I tried.  
Jul 03 8:47am @14.1.3 There are times when the Grandparents, Aunts, older Cousins or other women in the Tribe will watch the children. Especially, if they are not walking yet and may be too big for the older children to...
Jul 03 8:38am @14.2.1 Thank you Kavika, I'm really glad you like it. 
Jul 03 1:34am @15.1 "..." Would you mind to share one with us? I have never seen a tiger swallowtail butterfly before. So it would be very interesting to see one. (smile)
Jul 03 1:32am @14.1.1 Thanks Buzz. In this creation, although the older children are making toys, they are also learning how to sew and other work that they will need to learn to help provide for clothing and other...
Jul 03 12:41am @11.2.6 It was for me too in the beginning. But, it was like I was being smothered by fog, sometimes for days at a time. And I am claustrophobic, and the longer I was encased in fog the more the feeling of...
Jul 03 12:23am @14 Here's one that you have not seen yet...... 
Jul 03 12:20am @12.1.1 Thanks Buzz, I'm glad that you like it. 
Jul 03 12:19am @11.2.4 I'm what they call a flatlander. I have never lived on a mountain. I have lived near the beach in San Diego CA some years ago, and the fog would come literally rolling in late at night or early...
Jul 03 12:03am @13.1.2 You mean you didn't? ?? 
Jul 02 11:58pm @13.2 That is beautiful Adam. And Mt Rainier sitting in the distance is very majestic.
Jul 02 11:53pm @11.2.2 I went through the Blue Ridge Mountains on my way to No Carolina and the Smoky Mountains. I agree that they are beautiful. I was truly amazed seeing the mist slowly crawling over the tree tops of...
Jul 02 11:19pm @3.3.2 Yeah, when I was there too. Not sure if there were dumped by people who were eating them there, or for some other reason and the shells were washing up on the beaches. Captiva was the same. It was...
Jul 02 10:21pm @11.1 Beautiful scenery, sandy. 
Jul 02 10:20pm @12 Some of you may remember seeing this one before. Hope you enjoy it this time as well.
Jul 02 10:13pm @9.2 Wonderful photos Buzz. Reminds me of some of the shots I've seen on a few of the Chinese dramas I like to watch.
Jul 02 10:01pm @8.2 Great vid Ender. Truly awesome.
Jul 02 9:59pm @3.3 That reminds me of the beach in Sanabel and Captiva beaches near Ft Myers FL. I have Friends who I visited in Ft Myers a few times when I lived in Warrenton Virginia. The sunsets were were truly...
Jul 02 9:40pm @2.3 Great shot EG. Love the radiant colors of the sunrise. Awesome!
Jul 02 9:38pm @1.4 Thanks for your gift of the four pictures for us for the Fourth, they are truly beautiful, Mac. (smile)

Jul 03 8:00pm @6.2.6 "..." What do you know, 1st. You are a Native American, and that automatically makes you stupid and have no idea what you are talking about. Only the non-Native Americans know the truth about the...

Jul 03 7:50pm @1.2.10 "..." And in that, they are not wrong that he is a dangerous man. Dangerous to America, Dangerous to Americans. And dangerous to our allies and the world all around us. 
Jul 03 7:45pm @1.2.9 "..." Thank you.  (it won't bounce will it?   ?? )    
Jul 03 7:41pm @3.1.14 "..." That seems to be the only thing they care about. And we see that every day...they are out there with no face mask, shield, no social distancing, laughing on each other and care less what...
Jul 03 7:35pm @3.1.13 "..." I do as well, Sister.  I feel sorry for all handicap people, and to me, the Trump guppies are mentally handicapped, as they are so easily manipulated and made complete fools by him. I...
Jul 03 2:47pm @3.1.6 "..." I agree. However, Trumps followers will never believe that Trump is not always 100% right in everything he says and does. The Trump followers here on NT are a testament to that. We see it...
Jul 03 12:06pm @3.1.2 I totally agree with all you aid, Gordy. I still can't understand why Trump put Pence in charge of the Pandemic Task Force to begin with. With nothing to qualify him in any way for the task, it...
Jul 03 11:29am @3.1 "..." That's for sure. If Pence really had a a working brain between his two ears he would be dangerous. I knew when Trump put Pence in charge to oversee the Covid-19 situation it was a huge...
Jul 03 11:05am @2.1.6 "..." I guess she was not happy with the increase Hubby was willing to add to the prenup she was renegotiating for moving to the WH from the gold plated penthouse in NY after the election.
Jul 03 11:01am @1.2.4 "..." Most people would consider you to be an upright person, however, some here would think you to be a fool, as they would never admit to be wrong about anything, and even if evidence was...
Jul 03 10:35am @2.1.4 Indeed. And none of the party goers will dare make Trump mad by wearing a mask while at the party.
Jul 03 10:31am @1.1.2 It would seem by now they would know that they are merely fodder to toss under the bus when he gets tired of them or don't need them anymore. Maybe the more they kiss his a$$ the more he will want...
Jul 03 10:27am @2.1.2 And he'll make sure no one leaks it this time. He is still looking for the one who leaked his stay in the bunker when the protesters were out in front. He didn't like people knowing he was afraid...
Breaking : Washington Redskins Football Team Likely To Change Name Under Pressure From Sponsors

Breaking : Washington Redskins Football Team Likely To Change Name Under Pressure From Sponsors

Faced with financial losses as merchandising partners threaten to cut ties with the team, the ownership of the Washington Redskins NFL team announced today that it will review the franchises name for the future, seen as a sure sign that the 'Redskins' name is history. 
Jul 03 2:39pm @2.2.4 "..." It sure would not be the Native Americans who would be outraged. They were outraged because they would not change the name, So, who in your mind would be outraged?

Jul 03 1:02am @11.1.5 And many of them are not smart enough to think up how to be racist on their own, they are merely following behind someone else they think is super smart, and they want to be smart like that too....
