    • YES Bon Jovi it was a hard choice I have quite a collection of CD’s, I figured can’t go wrong with John Bon Jovi!! and thank you!

  1. Very nicely done Donna. Base on the variety of bright colors from the picture, first I can tell that you are not afraid of colors and it speaks about your bubbly personality and a very friendly one. Love your shovel.

    Great job Donna.

  2. Donna,
    What a great self portrait! I really love how you used your wood deck as a background! The list of items with a description of why they are important to you really completes this wonderful portrait! You did a very good job of arranging all the different items! Superb!!!!

    • Thanks Lorraine! I had as much fun writing this time as taking the shot! I only had time to shoot once, I would like to have tried again to get some of the items placed a little better! But…I’ll take it!

  3. Thanks Fay I appreciate your comment and picking such an interesting challenge!
    I may do this again!! It would also be fun to challenge family members to pick items and shoot a self portrait for them!!

      • Donna: Are they cute? (So now y’all also know I’m a lecherous old lady – um, woman.)

        Fay: Forget the dogs, I’m a cat-woman – er, lady?

        About Lucy – well, maybe, for a photo shoot, but I like to ride alone. Can she stay still and not lean away from the turns? Will her hair stay on? At 30? At 60? At 100? That could be an issue. Not for me – I know follically challenged people, some of my best friends are… I’m concerned for her. I know how it is to be embarrassed like that, if she’s sensitive that way. I have my secrets too, ya know (no tattoos, but…). Oh, and what about the guy behind us… clogged up windshield wipers and all… And, there’s that problem that she’s way cuter than I am. What are we going to do about that?

        Y’all just think about it…

    • I try to be vigilant and go in and correct misspellings when I see them. Unfortunately Word Press does not give you guys the option to do so… Grrrrr!

      Now about driving Ms. Lucy… stay still? Most definitely! Lean… yes but she may lean too far and then… OOPS! OH NO!

      The hair is always an issue but with a helmet… she would be cool!

      30… maybe , 60… never, 100… YIKES!!!!!

  4. Donna,

    Wow. Your such an inspiration. Love the colors and I didn’t know all that about you but it fits perfectly. Thanks for a great portrait of you
