  3. happy birthday to your mom!

    i have an unsmart phone. it just calls people and lets people call me. from time to time it sends and receives texts. my friend says it's obsolete.

    i think that a pink fence with berries growing nearby is a very smart fence indeed. incredible, actually.

  6. Happy birthday to your mother. I hope you have a lovely time out together. My mum died when she was 58 and I was in my 30s. Then you perhaps know that my daughter died in an accident when she was 21. I really feel that I have been diddled out of cool mother/daughter stuff! You enjoy! xxx

  9. Happy Birthday to your mom, I hope lunch was great.
    Being color blind, didn't pick up the pinkness of the fence, but loved the shot anyway.

  10. Little pink fences for you and me...
    So pretty.
    A droid is a phone I think, or maybe they are sly aliens here to take us over one technologically challenged human at a time... ;)
    Happy Friday !

  11. Beth, I was feeling a bit blue today, for today my own Mother would have been 78yrs old. But immediately upon reading your post, my heart warmed just knowing today was also your Mothers Birthday ~ so please give her a hug and kiss for me. My Mother loved to oil paint, and would love all your pictures, and I am sure she would have loved your fence today. Thank you, you always cheer me with your gift of pictures and words, Mary Lou

  17. Do I dare admit I don't know what a droid incredible is? But it must be incredible. Now I have to google it.

  20. havent been by for a while. Hope you had a good lunch with your mom!
    I agree, sometimes technology can definitely be over-rated!
    BTW, can you make my blog look awesome??? I am trying to figure out how to make my pictures bigger! UGH.

  21. It's a very pretty pink fence. Don't ask me about phone technology as my phone is so old, I just don't see the point in upgrading it as I only use it to make calls and text.

  22. hope you had a great mom-daughter lunch! and, you'll need to let me know if you like the Droid!

  25. I love silly things. A pink fence with berries, how special. Happy birthday to your mom!

  26. I hop eyour mom had a fabulous birthday, and I'm sure she did - how could she not with you nearby, pointing out pink fences & dreaming of red berries strolling along their tops?

    And PS - I admit to not getting the whole new phone thing, the waiting in line for the new iPhone (or however they spell it). I love my little Impression, I love the pix it takes, but seriously, the phone before it, the less-good picture phone, was easier to deal with. :) Life is hard enough without one button that does 100 things depending on the way you push it.

  31. Beth...Tell your Mom thank you for birthing you, so I can come to know you here! Have a lovely day! and oh, now I have pink fence envy!

  32. So laughing near you on this one. I just got a new phone, too. But, a cosmos, not a droid. I did have to get Jeffrey to call me - twice - before I could answer the silly thing. I'm a texting maniac now, though. I love it!
