I Love Playing with Graphics

Have I ever shared with you how much fun I have playing around with graphics? This morning I decided to write this mishmash post primarily using graphics that I have created while using very little prose. It took longer than a prose blog post would have taken, but writing it was lots of fun!

You may (and I hope you do) right click on each of the graphics to obain a much larger view.

The welfare of Aung San Suu Kyi & the freedom of the people of Burma are constantly on my mind:

I am praying for the people of Iran:

I now see only the physical therapist each week:

I call this progress:

The weatherperson says that there is another on the way right now:

Alex's claws can be useful:

Stuff doesn't always happen for my best, especially where banks are concerned:

Here is one I created some time ago that I really like:


  1. Nick,

    I knew Alex was good for you, but he does more for you than I ever imagined. Give him a hug and a kitty treat for me.

    Bummer about your bank. Will they remove the charges, since they are the ones who withdrew money before its time?

    Congratulations on your graduation and on your new exercise plan!

  2. Hey Nick...

    With you on the graphics game..... It is a a lot of fun... and when the end product is good, the satisfation is doubled


  3. Brilliant, Nick. I really wish I could do more with graphics. I love that proverb at the end, too.

  4. Carol: Yes, Alex has many skills, one of which is drawing my blood.

    I don't know what will happen with the bank. The overdraft charges are now up to $245.00, more than enough to purchase the glasses I need. However, the real issue is, as July bills flow in--especially utilities--will I have enough funds to pay them.

    Thank you. The goals I've set (with Jo) for physical therapy are exciting!

  5. Ash: It's great to hear from you! I know you ability with graphics and am honored by your comments.

  6. Welshcakes: Thank you. I suppose with graphics all one really needs is the right program and a bit of creativity. I find that proverb to be very special at this time in world history.

  7. I envy you...I have no idea how to do graphics. Is there a special software for it?

  8. Nick always a pleasure to come here.

    I love your graphics too.

    You have graduated to physio that is remarkable.

    Be well dearest Nick.

    Love Renee xooxo

  9. Ouch. I would prefer the lancets!

    Great pics!

  10. Puss-in-Boots: Thank you, but I don't think I am enviable! I'm very much an amature where graphics are concerned. The graphics here I created with Print Master (which also makes neat greeting cards) and Photoshop Elements. I had a lot of fun playing around with them.

  11. James Higham: Thanks. I suppose progress is apparent; actually I think where my physicial condition is conerned I am returning to younger days! Well, maybe not too much younger

  12. Renee: Thank you. It's good to see you; I always appreciate your comments. I think that it's amazing how much better off I am now that I was just a few years ago. Now...if I could just have the energy of my youth (or at least not have to nap so much).

  13. Emerging From The Fire: Thank you. I much prefer the lancets. They are much easier to get out of my skin thatn Alex's claws!
