My friend, Anna, has tagged me. She did this because of a mini-sorta-blog called a “meme”. A “meme” tells 6 random things about yourself and then you tag 6 other bloggers. (The  rules are below.)

While I don’t usually do this sort of thing because I look at it sort of like a “chain letter”, I’m making an exception because it is through Anna, who I respect quite a lot and consider a good friend, even though I have never actually met her. i Love her blog but I especially like her macro photography of bees and bugs, even though some of them give me the creeps!

But since this is a photo blog, I feel compelled to include pictures related to this blog as much as I can.
Like this one:

Her Ringheart is Cracked but Not Her Heart

Her Ringheart is Cracked but Not Her Heart

So, anyway, here’s how the “meme” works (in Anna’s words):

It’s time for the 6 random things “meme”.

The rules are:
1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

My “meme”:

In the last blog (Plugging a hole…), I pointed out that I had forgotten Anna in the previous blog to that (Recent Electrifications…).
One would think that after I had spent so much time writing the previous one (I tend to edit A LOT), that I would have remembered that i actually did remember to include in her the list of wordpressers I’m impressed with because of their photography (and prose).
Well, writing the second one just plugged her a bit more, I guess.

Darkness Falls - Timnath

Darkness Falls - Timnath

Anyway, I spent the weekend with some folks I hadn’t seen in a couple of years. Paul and I went to college together back in……well, back there somewhere…..and he, his wife, Barb, and son, Rob, came out for the weekend from the Bay Area. We drove up through Longmont and saw another old college friend, continued on to Timnath, where they knew a terrific lady from back in the day, then back to Ft. Collins, where we spent the evening with another pair of college friends. Old home weekend.

In Timnath, which is a tiny spit of a town (Pop. 238 in the 2003 census, I believe), it was Founders Day with tents set up on Main Street, selling all sorts of homemade nick-nacks. Main Street in Timnath is all of about 2 blocks long, which would be expected for a population as massive as theirs is. Consequently, the choice of handmade goods was pretty slim…interesting but slim. The town itself is not short on character, though, with buildings that have stood the test of time and are still going strong…well, most of them anyway. Continue reading
