~ Better Late then Never ~

And you thought I was kidding when I said I saw Elvis.  You thought it was the pain pills, or the drugs while I was in surgery.  Nope.  He appeared along with Hillbilly Jeff.  LMAO  Tell me these guys don't look like they are having a riot!?!  
I was actually working on these pictures when my indigestion started.  Now we all know it was not indigestion at all and since I'm now at my house I had access to them so I wanted to post them.  Sorry for the flash back. 
Bug and Gage with Hillbilly Jeff.  I can't help but crack up each time I see him.  That fake belly and the long hair.  Just too much fun.  I love the kids costumes too!
Bug posing with one of Grandma's decorations.  I can't remember for the life of me what she is doing or saying.  Maybe talking to her Mom who is also taking pictures.  My co-worker had given me his camera again to test out.  I have also have the software to get the pictures off the camera and on to my computer.  I actually used the 'new' camera and my niece used my old one. 
I did notice a difference but have not used it again since.  Below the first picture is with my old camera taken by my niece.  Virtually at the same time the other one is taken by me with the 'new' one.  Hopefully I will start gaining more strength and I will be able to try the camera a few more times to see what I come up with.  Like I said, I notice a difference, do you?
I won't bore you with a bunch of Halloween pictures, but it just wouldn't be right if I didn't post a couple :)

As you can tell I am feeling a bit better but no where near to being normal.  LOL  Like I said earlier I have the Dr. snowed. I love being home as I am not as bored when I have some energy.  It's also good to force me to do a bit for myself.  No worries I won't do to much.  My parents are wonderful and took great care of me.  My younger sister waited on me hand and foot.  Up to and including putting my wonderful stockings on each day and taking them off and washing them each night.  Thanks Nanc! 
I again want to thank everyone for their kindness, concern, and prayers.  I will be getting to more blogs as the days wear on.  Thanks for being so understanding.

Glad you are home again :o)

I think the quality of the pictures is about equal.

Martha said...

The photos are great! Thanks for sharing them with us, too funny! I can see a difference with the two cameras, but both look high quality. I'm so glad you are home and doing better. It's great to see you posting too, I always know you're feeling better when I see a post pop up. Don't get yourself too excited watching the games today. Big hugs! :-)

Linda said...

Joan said...

So glad you are on the mend reading your journal just now is reminding me of when I nursed my hubby after his bypass and the stockings I remember them what a job he had keeping them up. I have lots of tips that could help you if you are struggling with anything just ask and I will do my best to help. Love Joan

Yasmin said...

Good your home now rest up and take it easy, liked the photo's.

Take care


Gaboatman said...

It's great to hear from you again, glad you are feeling a bit better. I like those characters you were hanging out with, LOL!

I do see a difference between the two pictures, but as Martha said, both are high quality. I know you'll enjoy experimenting with the new one as you get to feeling better.

Rest up now, you have a big day ahead on Thursday. We all have a lot to be thankful for this year!

Jeannette said...

Now don't you go doing too much now you're home, I know there are still willing hands out there who you can call. Those stockings are a pain but if they keep you going then it's worth the struggle of putting them on! The photos are magic, I just love Bug posing, isn't she the sweetest?! I can see the difference in the two cameras, hope you get to use it some more. Take it easy, no getting excited over your boys! Lol! Good to have you back with us, it wasn't the same without you! Jeannette xx

Hollie said...

It's so good to hear from you!!!! I'm glad that you are able to be home...there's really no place like home. That's so sweet of your sister...I know you would do the same for her. The photos are great. One looks a little more crisp than the other, but they are both great!

Bridgett said...

What fantastic (funny) costumes!
Hillbilly Jeff is a riot. :)

Love the mullet. LOL

And yes, I can definitely notice a difference in the two pictures. The one with the new camera has more vivid colors and the details are more clear.


Linda's World said...

So glad you're back home. Great pictures! Wish I could take my "fat suit" off. I love the Elvis costume. Looks like the one Bob's son in law wore at his 50th birthday party last February. Again, it's so good to have you back. Linda in Washington state

Chris/cacklinrosie101 said...

LOL...were you ever normal? Love you, D! Glad you are home and know you will take it easy. But still you sound better each time you write.

When you mention the two different cameras, I went back and can see a bit of a difference but after you mentioned it.

But really is model material. The camera loves that child. Good to hear from you again. Love you!

a coworkers grown kids went as a retired Hooters girl and he went as a Viagra patient and let me tell you--those costumes were hilarious and X rated. I love your Elvis there and Bug and Gage are SOSOSO cute!! I hope you continue to heal and rest a lot and feel so much better. So glad you have your sister to help and your family around you. It makes ME happy to see you are so loved by me!

Sweetnessk71 said...

Hiya. The pictures are great lol. Glad to hear you are feeling a bit better. Have a Happy Thanksgiving.


Bethe said...

OMG! How funny 'Elvis" is!!

I was looking at the bottom 2 pic's. I think the bottom most one has the most vibrant color. So you decided to buy the camera? That will be wonderful to play with while you are recouping.

(Gentle Hugs)

I can tell a difference with the new camera...the colors are much more vibrant..and just crisp and clear...but your old camera takes good pics as well!

If you don't post again before Thanksgiving...I hope you and your family have a Happy Thanksgiving!
