Ah, the wonders of Photoshop...
Bringing an old photo back to life...

The "Picasa" program which I use to post some photos has "fine-tuning" things that you can do to a can lessen or deepen shadows, you can add "fill light", and you can increase the "color temperature" of a foto. I took this old photo and played around with it a bit, and really increased the "temperature", so what appears looks like a summer afternoon in Coeur d'Alene's "Blackwell Park" (where City Park is now)...this'll take you back to around the turn of the century...somewhere around the early 1900's...

It almost looks like you could jump right into that photo and get warm, doesn't it? I think I feel this way due to the onslaught of the cool temperatures around here the last few nights. I do think fall is on the way. First, SeptemBRRRR, and then OctoBRRRR, then NovemBRRRR, and finally, DecemBRRR. And I have reserved the right to alter the names of the next two months: JanuBRRRay, then FeBRRRuary.

What's the best way to tell when a blogger has nothing to write about? When he talks about the WEATHER.

So, what to do about this weather depression? I have it too. I'm never happy when summer is over. NEVER!

Deidre says we should do a summer dance and hasten global warming. She says the dinosauers will wake up if we do.

Well, Cathy...I guess I should be the first one to tell both you and dearest Deidre that a nasty thing called "extinction" happened to all the Dinosaurs. So, dance away. But look out for fat old men in swimming trunks, the dinosaurs of today. Ack! Now, THAT'S scary!

Mr. Anonymous (hoping YOU'RE not 'thong man'), that may not be entirely true. I've seen him around town in other seasons, but every time I see him, the mental image of him preening himself on the beach, letting his butt-cheeks hang out while playing with little children comes to mind. I think, even fully clothed, he is just a sleazy looking character. I hope a mosquito bites him on the butt.
