"Rise up this morning, smiled with the rising sun. Three little birds pitch by my door step." - Bob Marley

What you see above is a rare occurrence, and I'm not talking about my naturally frizzy hair. Most of my photos are taken in the late afternoon, but this particular shoot was an anomaly. To say I'm not a morning person is an understatement. I usually don't leave the house until 9 am. I'm all about some banker's hours. Anyway, on this morning I was wide awake at 4 am. Bladder pain struck again. Luckily, my doctor had given me some good drugs earlier in the week, and I was pain free a few minutes after it began. Since I was already up, I opted not to go back to bed. Instead, I got ready for my day, and Jerry and I went out for a photo shoot shortly after dawn. These photos were taken near a little work shed in our hood. I'm sure our neighbors just love us. I can hear them now, "There goes those crazy kids again. They were up in a tree last time. I wonder what they'll be up to next."

Bob Marley - Three Little Birds



  1. You are not a kid or even close to being a kid. You are a grown-up. You have children. Your children are kids. You or Jerry are not. Just sayin'. Because someone has to.

  2. Thanks for stating the obvious, Missy. "I did not know that."

    I bet you're a real riot at parties. You need to lighten up a bit. Just sayin'...

  3. I love this dress, Bonnie; I think the whole outfit is beautiful. I am also not a morning person, but on the rare occasion when I find myself up in time to see the dawn, I never regret it.

    And to Missy - or should I say, "Captain Obvious": posting snide remarks on the internet doesn't benefit anyone. Save it for whoever has the misfortune to know you in real life.

  4. LOL

    "I bet you're a real riot at parties" = you hit the nail on the head.

  5. I love, love, LOVE this dress. You hair looks great here, too. I like the curls!

  6. hahahaahah...ok, the bonus of so many obnoxious people commenting on your post? Your zingers are developing nicely. I'm totally stealing that "...real riot at parties." I have some 'acquaintances' who think they're oh so cool, making pissy remarks like Missy.

    And I freakin' love your hair like that. Just saying. Hope you're ready for the Christmas holidays! :o)

  7. I'm sorry, but I had to laugh at Missy's comment....too funny.

  8. 3 Birds on a DRESS!???? YES PLEASE! And I agree - your hair looks beautiful like that. I am assuming it is "natural".... lucky dog! And BTW - there was a huge YouTube drama today where someone was bullied off of YouTube but then they stepped right back up and said "NO WAY". They are back on and I thought of you.... don't let the nay-sayers get to you. They win that way! You are gorgeous and have great style and are an inspiring soul. Have a great day! Cheers! xoxo
