We had a fun day.

     We had a fun day yesterday.  Hit 2 antique malls and had alot of fun looking around.  Either I charge way to little for my items or they charge way too much.  I think the latter.  Everything was way high.  But one booth had the most beautiful Nippon and Limoges, etc... Beautiful china.  And a Weller Jardiniere and pedestal that was to die for.  Oh to be rich.  I didn't buy a single thing but now am regretting not buying a childs piece of doll furniture we saw.  It was so cute and I think I could make a profit on it.  May have to go back and get it.

   The falls was unbelievable.  Roaring water and they had barricades up as it had left the bank in places.  We were not the only ones up there to see them.  Lots of people.  It is so weird.  The water foams.  I thought pollution but it is a natural thing.  Stinks too.  Very neat though.  You can see the pictures, and I warn you there are way to many of them in my photo journal.  If you have dial up sorry, I was too lazy to pick which to keep.  I will eventually thin them out.

      Then after walking around the falls for a couple of hours we went to eat.  Old Chicago has a world beer tour you can join and the if you try all the beers, not all at once you get prices.  Yesterday I got this.

  I guess to remind me the bar is closing and a compass to find my way home?  Anyway I love getting prices and Rick is looking at it with longing so I will probably make him happy.  Men love things like this.  It was a long day but fun and we got home around 9:30.  Today I study and clean house.  Fun fun.

   Last this picture below is enhanced but it didn't look good before, I like it better now.

What excellent photo's. I love the falls, your pictures are so life like I could almost hear the roar of the falls. Thanks so much for posting these. I have dial up and it didn't take me that long to view all of them.

The falls are amazing!  I get hypnotised from falls.  I go to Niagara quite frequently and hit the American side on trails that are private.  Just fascinates me.  Wonderful pictures in your album!

I would love the beer fest.  Nothing like a good, stout beer.  Sounds like a very nice day  you had.  Chris

Yes the key chain caught my attention among all the pictures. It does have a certain "man" appeal. <grin>

It really can be time consuming to go through a bunch of pictures to pick out the ones you really like.  That is the hardest part sometimes about photography.
