Home sweet home with Bryan, Lyla Maryanna, and Michelle. The focus of course is on sweet Lyla, who is now bald just like her grandfather. I suspect that will change. See my video Photo Tip #10 featuring Lyla . Click on my profile link Instagram or see FB page. — with Michelle Madden Smith.

My good neighbors, Frank and Dawn on my front porch. When I travel they take good care of me. Feed and love my cats and clean up the mess I leave behind. See these dear friends in Photo Tips #9 on my YouTube channel or FB page.

Holi Festival, Dubai . A day to rid oneself of past errors and conflicts by meeting others. A day to forgive and forget and simply recognize friendship. Originating in India, this night in Dubai brought many nationalities together in a unifying warm spirit. Carrie Larose from Toronto, Canada is in Dubai on vacation and rocks to the electronic “rave” that was indeed a part of the fest.
