What a dreary day!

Are any of y'all from Texas? Although I feel for you with the tornadoes that you had a few days could have sent this storm system out to sea and NOT to New England! It is COLD, rainy, snowy, windy and, need I remind you, it is April 15th!

No freebie today but thought I would just chat...I have a new kit in the making. I was working on it, agonizing over a name. I am beginning to think that naming kits has become worse than the packaging and uploading! I am going to take a tip from Anita and post it and let you guys pick a name! I told her she was cheating but, gee, names are so hard to come by!

I digress, so I was sitting in front of Nell (my computer, since it is a Dell...figured I should name it since we spend so much time together) working on this kit, racking my brain for a name. Reminds me of a garden...Spring Blooms? Glorious Garden? Forever Flowers? Just a few that I immediately tossed aside. Then, a song came on the radio! Any guesses? Give you a hint...the singer has since passed away and the song has something to do with garden! Come on put your thinking caps on. A prize MAY be awarded if I don't have to give you too many hints!!

The Exchange...OMG! I NEVER want to hear the NEWBIE weeny whining again! For all the nay have come through! See? Told you that you could do it! And, I don't mind the questions at all! I wish that I had asked more questions when I was learning, maybe I wouldn't still be doing things the hard way! But, some of you have really challenged me. I have only ever used PSP so as far as the other programs, I can only guess. But post questions here and somebody may be able to help if I can't.

Some of you are still having trouble with the picture opening. One thing that I do (and I am not sure this is the expert way, but) I have my file settings set like:

File/Preferences/File preferences/PNG and then check load and save transparency to/from layer transparency

this keeps what you want transparent to stay transparent when you save it.

Also, please check that your pages are 300 ppi. Some have come through as 72 which is PSP default. You need to change that to at least 200ppi and in most groups, they insist upon 300 ppi. Between 72 and 200/300 is a MAJOR difference in print quality.

Now some general chit-chat:
Christeph...don't know if he has a brother or sister!?!?! Just tell your other half, if he is smart and wants supper, to be thankful for you and not be asking! You on the other hand are free to fantasize all you want! are not blaming me for getting you hooked are you? Make me sound like a pusher! LOL! Yes, it is a good thing...not expensive, it is enjoyable and you get to meet lots of people!

Elaine...girl....where have you been???? Fotofusion is loaded on my computer but I can't figure it out but, gee, give it a try. The pages are great and you don't want to miss them!

Judyf...I don't know if I will preview the pages here because there are so many! And the only way you can get them is if you submit a page...sorry, but that is the whole point of the exchange.

Finally....sure! You all gave me big ones because I won't share Officer Goodbody BUT I OFFER Ben Gay and Art Ritis to you and so far NObody wants them! I see who my friends are! LOL! It could be worse... have you met this nice young man? He just calls himself "H" and he dresses real nice! I call him Preppy H! Oh, the joys of having been pregnant and then the Golden Years!

Thanks for all the comments on the new look of the was only 2 months passed Valentine's Day...thought I should change it!

Have a wonderful day. Go rest your eyes...boy! can I run off at the mouth!

It has to be Garden Party--That is the first think I think of. Oh, what dreamy eyes he had! My sister named her first daughter Kristin, after his wife.

Congratulations Beth

(Rick Nelson)

I went to a garden party
To reminisce with my old friends
A chance to share old memories
And play our songs again
When I got to the garden party
They all knew my name
No one recognized me
I didn't look the same

But it's all right now
I learned my lesson well
You see, ya can't please everyone
So ya got to please yourself

People came from miles around
Everyone was there
Yoko brought her walrus
There was magic in the air
'N' over in the corner
Much to my surprise
Mr Hughes hid in Dylan's shoes
Wearing his disguise

But it's all right now
I learned my lesson well
You see, ya can't please everyone
So ya got to please yourself


Played them all the old songs
Thought that's why they came
No one heard the music
We didn't look the same
I said hello to "Mary Lou"
She belongs to me
When I sang a song about a honky-tonk
It was time to leave

But it's all right now
I learned my lesson well
You see, ya can't please everyone
So ya got to please yourself

Lot-dah-dah (lot-dah-dah-dah)

Someone opened up a closet door
And out stepped Johnny B Goode
Playing guitar
Like a-ringin' a bell
And lookin' like he should
If you gotta play at garden parties
I wish you a lotta luck
But if memories were all I sang
I rather drive a truck

But it's all right now
I learned my lesson well
You see, ya can't please everyone
So ya got to please yourself

Lot-dah-dah (lot-dah-dah-dah)

'N' it's all right now
Learned my lesson well
You see, ya can't please everyone
So you got to please yourself

No prize for me but I did find the song and I didn't realize that he sang about Yoko and her walrus and Mr. Hughes was mentioned as well. Wow what we learn when we read lol.

I listen to the "oldies" (as the radio stations claim them to be)
That really dates me, or so it feels.
That song gets played on it.
But wasn't he the most handsome thing back in the day!?
Yes he was.
I had a huge crush on Ricky.
