Just joined Blip. I love watching the birds and wildlife in my back yard.....both in Portland and on the Oregon Coast.
I love being a grandma to my 6 teenage grandchildren.
I received a nicer camera this last Christmas and I am just now starting to use it.
PLEASE  help me with my settings whenever you see a place I could improve my photos. 
I am not old according to how I feel....but the years are creeping up on me and learning something new is harder than when i was young.
I have been married.....to the same lovely man...for 50 years. I enjoy being actively involved in the lives of my children and grandchildren. They all live nearby. (I feel extremely blessed.)  Wish I would have  had Blipfoto when the grandkids were little because I would have a history of each day with them. NO, wait, I would never be able to choose only one foto, especially on those days I spent with more than one family.
The teenage grandkids drive by and see me lately watching a young bald eagle family near the roadway and they laugh! But I tell them it could be so much worse.....I could be.......... (ok, you can imagine what I said) and they decided to change the subject.  Very funny. They love shocking me with  questions they know their "church lady" grandma might find embarrassing. I answer most questions honestly and  am less concerned about what other's might think about what i am saying. 
I think i am considered brutally honest..... sometimes it gets me in trouble. Oh well, I am not so concerned about being liked by everyone anymore. 
Don't get me wrong......I really do want YOU to like me!!

Update February 2019:
My photos are still often of birds and nature. I have met many Blippers in person which makes it even better seeing your photos every day....many more of you are friends and I enjoy hearing about your lives. Blip has been very good for me......I don't know if I have improved greatly as a photographer and sometimes I will skip a day or two  if I don't get a photo......but I am having unstressful fun. Life is very good.

My grandchildren are all in college or working.....except for two who are graduating from High school this year and entering college in the fall. I have one great grandchild who spends many days and nights with us.....she brings us so much joy and many smiles.  Life is very very good.
