White Christmas Tree

My Dad has been using  this small Christmas tree for ages.  so when we had our new tree, we decided to bring our white tree  on his house.
My daughter and wife decorated it yesterday.
It looks good at his house as it brings  bright light to the living room.
My daughter was so proud of the job they did hehehe.

Penny for your Thought

My FIL gave these collection to my husband. They are pennies from way back then. It isn't complete though but it's worth keeping as it is handed down to him. He can keep this and give it to EJ when he's old enough to keep things.
Thanks for dropping by!

Set of Hair Clippers

During my last tour of duty in Korea, I attended t school for two weeks in Japan as part of the requirement of my new job assignment then. Before I left, I bought a set of hair clippers that I could use. I started cutting my own hair with the help of my wife. The price of the hair clipper set was very affordable and it saves us money. I also cut my son's hair so it really is a money saver that I bought it.

Maple Tree

I took this shot a couple of days ago when we visited Dad. His neighbor's Japanese maple tree look great due to the sunlight hitting the leaves. Isn't it Gorgeous?

Blue Fish


Taken at PPG Aquarium. I couldn't remember the scientific name of this small fish but they are beautiful. Based from my assessment, the kids enjoyed the water animals more than the land animals.

Fine Lining

This was taken a couple of days ago when I saw this fine lining of cloud on a dark blue sky. Almost all the trees have lost their leaves already and the surrounding is starting to look sad. That's one thing I don't like about the coming of winter. It's taking away the beauty of nature.

Cactus, Rocks, and a.....

Isn't he has a nice color combination?I like how they put that big cactus and three rocks in his glass box.

Fruits

 I spotted this tree when we were leaving Starvaggi Park last Friday.  I thought at first that those red attached to the branches are leaves but I was wrong, those are small fruits.  I am not sure what kind of tree this is though.
Have a great week ahead folks.

Gush of Water


The gush of water is a therapeutic thing. It relaxes our mind and ease our emotions. Imagine if water will be taken away, we will all vanish. Water is life, so let's preserve and take care of it.

The High-tech Mullet Flashback


The other day, we were visiting my dad and I saw this picture on his dining room table. Turns out, he was going through some old letters and pictures and discovered this gem. A friend of mine took this photo as part of a classroom walk-around project for his photography class. I was sitting in a computer programming class having loads of fun programming (can't you tell). My mom wanted me to go into the computer field back then because it was the new thing. After taking Fortran and Basic, I decided that I would rather dig graves than do this type of work (no offense to the computer programmers or grave diggers out there). So, I proudly sport my quasi-mullet look while banging away on the latest and greatest technology at the time...the 286. This should definitely give my age away. Have a wonderful day everyone.

Spooky!


Our daughter trying to be spooky the night before Halloween hehehe. How was your trick or treat? Ours was pretty good, the kids got cough out of it because of the cold weather but they certainly had so much fun!

Halloween Shadows


Hello everyone, we are experiencing the first snow of the year. It is snowing real light today. Taken at my father's neighbor before Halloween. They always decorate their house for every occasion which is a delight to our kids.
