    Attitudinus Horribilus Uncooperatus PITAibus

    Okay, so that scientific name may be a tad off, but it sure fits!

    I needed a break from the happy kitchen remodel, so I took the day off!

    Probably should have just grouted tile instead!

    Hi Terry,

    They're not that bad mate, just (perhaps) a touch over exposed on the throat.

    Don't be so grout-chy

    From my newbie perspective, they are fantastic. I can't even get my dogs to look that good!

    I guess I was describing my own scientific name, Dave! I thought it would be better for me to post these rather than shots of both my thumbs hammered, the nail through my foot (you don't want to even know how that happened), and the new holes I have in my kitchen walls (which I am going to leave for drainage)!

    Thank you, sir.

    I am certainly going to look into that over-exposure possibility. Thank you for taking the time to have a look-see, Dave. I aways appreciate you giving me the benefit of your expertise. Maybe more than you will ever know.

    Thank you so much Gretchen.

    It seems to me that we photograph the creatures that we share the Planet with because we have a connection with them. When we go out and try to get them in their world, we have to improvise, adapt, and overcome to attempt to get the shots we are after. They don't care, and that is how it should be.

    After all, they are doing their level best to try to improvise, adapt, and overcome in the world that we have (probably wrongly) created that they have to deal with.

    I don't envy them that task, but I sure am happy that they are there for us and we have their connection.

    I think you're doing great with the hummers terry. Apparently, much better than the kitchen.


    If you have any questions about the kitchen, feel free to ask. I've remodled more kitchens ,than you ever walked in. ( seriously, it's what i do for a living)

    We complain when we get bad shots, we complain when we get good shots, we complain when we get great shots.

    So keep shooting these beauties but don't stop complaining. I think it is a photographer thing or we never improve.

    I'll be sure to let you know, Steve! So far, I've been able to stem the bleeding long enough to get back to work! The local ER staff and I are now on a first name basis!

    But by golly, this kitchen will get remodeled come Hell or High Water!

    Top five things I don't want to hear myself saying to my wife on a remodel:
    #5- Oh that? Thats for drainage!
    #4- Plumb? Well anyone can make everything plumb!
    #3- No worries about the new plumbing leaking, Sweetie! That's what the drainage is for!
    #2- Nah. Its supposed to be that way! I'll just caulk it!
    And the #1 thing I Never Want To Hear Myself Say on a Remodel...
    ...oops!

    The Hummers are a blast!
