Just For Fun… Jesse and Poppa



IMG_1501        Jesse & Poppa    by Dianne©dsphotocats

I got home early from work today. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, so I decided to play around in Photoshop and this is the result. I hope it puts a smile on your face, and maybe even a chuckle. Behind the cloned face is my dear sweet husband. I just borrowed a little bit of Jesse’s hair to come up with this remake of the two of them. Oh ya , I also borrowed Jesse’s nose, and a few other things.

Hope you all are having a good day.

xoxo Dianne :)

Here is the same pic only I tweaked it some more as you can see. :)

Which one do you like best?

Okay, I decided to add another picture. This is the same picture, only I removed the little bit of hair that was across the eyes. If you look closely at the two pictures you will see the difference.  Well this was fun for me. Hope you found it interesting.

There Is A Quack On The Ice

Should I bomb those crazy ducks, walking on thin ice?

What are you doing up there? Don’t you dare!

Is it really Spring?

I want to settle down, build a nest, and have a family.

Why do I have cold feet?

I go through this every year.

I love that little Ducky

She’s my gal!

What is going through Drake’s mind these days?

Why are we walking on this thin ice?

Doesn’t he know how much I love him, and will follow

him anywhere. Even to the other side of the Bay, if

that is what it takes. If I have my way, we will be mates

for life. I will be glad when we can finally settle down

and build that little nest we quacked about,

and have a family.





Have you ever been on thin ice while out on a date?

I am sorry I threatened to bomb the love birds.

I don’t know what got into me.

I just want Spring to get here, so more people will come,

and bring me treats.

The little unremembered acts of kindness and love are the best parts of a person's life.

William Wordsworth


“I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.”

Mother Teresa quotes



These are a few photos I took on Saturday. This has been the first I have been out with my camera in some time. I had no idea where I was going when I started this post. Sometimes it is as much of a surprise to me as it is to you. :)

Well it is late, and I just finished this post,and need to get some sleep, as tomorrow, Lord Willing, I will wake up, and start a new week. There is much going on in our world today. Lets all try to make a difference in some small way.

I hope you all have a good week ahead. God be with you, and keep you well and safe.

Until next time.  Love and Care to all.   Dianne :)

Happy Spring!



Redwing Blackbird

Spring makes it’s own statement, so loud and clear that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments, not the composer.

- Geoffrey B. Charlesworth




Good Morning Mr. Robin

The Robins and Red Winged Blackbirds are back.

The Swans, and Canada Geese are back too, as well as a few other song birds, all chirping away. My pair of swans, and pair of geese are already back, and claiming their territory and where they will nest in the near future. Yes, “Spring Romance” is in the air. Some may say it is for the birds! They certainly think so. :)

7:21p.m Eastern Standard Time is officially the beginning of Spring! I want to wish you all a Happy Spring. Spring is a time of new beginnings, new growth, new hope, after a long cold winter. A new season is upon us. Yes, it has finally arrived. I for one am looking forward to it, and the days ahead.

Happy Spring to all who are about to enjoy this new season of life. As I post this to my blog it is now officially here!

Love and Care, Dianne Smile

The Light_Sharing From My Heart




The Lord Is My Light Psa.27        



A Missionary was sailing home when she was awakened by a cry – a cry which is perhaps the  most difficult to hear when at sea. “Man overboard!” She arose quickly from her berth, lit the lamp at the window of her cabin, and then held the lamp at the window of her cabin in hopes of seeing some sign of life in the murky waters outside.

Seeing nothing she hung the lamp back on its bracket, snuffed it out, and returned to her berth with prayers for the man lost at sea. In the morning, to her surprise she discovered  the man had been rescued. Not only that, but she learned it was the flash of her lamp through the porthole that showed those on deck the location of the missing man who was desperately clinging to a rope still attached to the deck. He was pulled from the cold waters just in the nick of time. Such a small deed of shining a lamp at the right time had saved a man’s life.

  It isn’t the size of the deed you do that counts. God can take every deed we perform and use it for His purposes, in our lives and in the lives of others.


My heart has been very heavy for the people of Japan, Haiti, and so many. We must all do what we can to help our fellow man. Shining our lamps in  what ever way we can. All of us can pray. All of us can do something.

If I didn't do anything else with my life, I do want to spread His Love, and be able to encourage others in The Faith. We really do need to Love and support each other, as God's Children. We are Family! :) We do need to pray for our unsaved loved ones, and others who don't know Jesus Christ, and haven't accepted Him as Lord, and Savior.

(John 14:6), He is the Only Way, to be saved, and God help those who reject Him. (John 3:16), God is not willing that any should perish, and has made a way for all to come and be reconciled with Him. This life is temporary, but Eternity is Forever. I want to spend it with Jesus, and I want all to be saved, but I know that is not the case, according to His Word. God will not share His Glory with those who choose to worship false gods, and reject His Son. All other ground is sinking sand. 
  We serve a Wonderful Savior who gave His Life, so that we could be saved. I pray God will open the eyes of the spiritually blind,and that all will come to a saving knowledge of who He is. That all would hear the gospel, and come to the place of decision. We all must make that choice. God is not to be taken lightly. I am just sharing some of my thoughts, and feelings with you, this day. I have many loved ones and friends, and people I know who don't know the Lord. I pray for them, and I also pray that God would give me the courage to tell others about Jesus when He gives me the opportunity to do so, and know when to speak, and when not to speak.

We are living in troubled times. Our world is changing before our very eyes. Jesus’s disciples asked Him in Mathew chapter 24, in the Bible, What would be the sign of His coming, and the end of the age? Jesus warned them to watch out for many will come in His name, claiming to be Christ, and deceive many. He also said, there would be wars, and rumors of wars, but don’t be alarmed for such things must happen but the end is not yet. Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdoms against kingdoms. There will be famines, and earthquakes in various places. (Sound Familiar?) All these are the beginning of birth pains.

It goes on… You can read it for yourselves.  I am not a Bible scholar but I do believe the Bible is the Inspired Word of God, to all man kind.

This is what I believe. This is my conviction. God gave us all a free will to choose. All I ask is that if you don’t believe at this time, you give it some thought, and ask God to reveal Himself to you, if He is real. If you are sincere and seek Him, He will show you. Ask Him to open the eyes of your heart, and He will. If you are the least bit curious, and want to find Truth, read the Gospel of John. What have you to loose?

Sincerely, Dianne
