Since I just have a few hours left to be 75 yet I dressed up for a self portrait and sat on the bumper in back of our used Saturn car we bought today with the sky reflecting through the back window..It has been a good year and have many things to be thankful for... most of all for good health at my age. Photography has been a wonderful incentive which I look forward to as a hobby every day and am thankful that we have a site such as JPG! Very much love the challenges that are offered here as it helps us to grow through the years to become aware of what there is in life that is important to photograph and that is to make every day count that we have left on earth.

A lady from my hometown who is such an inspiration to her community turned 100 this year. She wrote me a lovely note of thanks after I sent her a birthday greeting..She said that God had blessed her at age 100 with a mind that can still remember and she was thankful for that and much more... If I am blessed to ever reach her age, I hope I could be just like her.

I can't think of anything to be more thankful for than the treasure of life and to be able to enjoy life on earth no matter how old or how young we are! The hat that I am wearing on my self portrait here, I bought on September 3rd at a favorite thrift Store co-incidentally is named "Treasures from the Heart ."

My thanks to Alex Preiss for the spotlight on my birthday 9/5/2019...It is very appreciated!!!
My thanks to Ioana Caravan for the spotlight on 9/8/2019...Very appreciated also

    Happy Birthday, Andrea! September 4 is a great day. One of my brother in laws and my father in law were born on September 4! I hope it was a good one! Ditto, John's comment.

    Thank you all for your kind words and birthday greetings..Richard, I turned 76 today on September 5th...Yesterday on the 4th I was still 75 yet when I shot an early birthday self portrait. I overslept this morning...I usually never sleep until 10:00 AM but the extra sleep was rejuvenating and since I am a year older maybe I needed the extra ZZZ:-)

    Thank you all for your kind words...I just thought of the song "76 Trombones" which I can relate
    to for the number 76:-) Thank you Alex Preiss for the kindness of your spotlight which I just
    noticed you had given me ...I appreciate it very much!
