almost the end of April 2018...

Baron, my furry companion, has turned 10 (born either the 2nd or 4th April 2008) and Out Of My Mind Images (created on Wordpress 3rd April 2013) is on the way out.  I no longer remember how many web sites and/or blogs I've created since 1997 when I created my very first one on AOL.  Perhaps this blogger/blogspot one, Yaya Snaps, will be the last :)

For Grace, I still, occasionally, find myself drawing an OOMMI and hope to continue as long as my eyesight and pencil lead hold out.  The problem is that I draw stuff and still take a photo every now and then but they rarely end up on this blog (or any other blog). 

Wishing any who turn up here a Happy May Day!

Theanne and Baron

so here we are, roaring into...

a super cold (for some folks) and super hot (for others)...


the above is a dried root system of some plant (surely a weed) that I found in the backyard, draped over a lamp shade (light on) and took a photo!  Looks more like a Halloween shot to me, however, it'll have to do for easing us into 2018.

or

maybe this would be more appropriate for the east coast of USA, in recent days


This is one of my original O.O.M.M.I (Out Of My Mind Images).


Very little headway has been made 'rescuing' photos and artwork from the Wordpress Blog.  And, upfront I'll warn you, some of what I share for a while you may have seen before, so here's hoping you enjoy seeing it again.

I love black and white art and black and white photos, so that's where we'll start.

took this at the 'old' vet's office, always like reflections


and yes Baron did, apparently, eat a brillo pad sometime ago, when I wasn't home.  Where I was or why he wasn't corralled in his little fence I don't remember.

revisiting Christmas 2015...

created this from a photo I'd taken of one of the grandkids chairs, using Corel software.


Lots of fun to do...my favorite part is the little house, above the baseboard, on the right hand side.

Still looking for more Christmas stuff on my portable hard drive.

this little Christmas ornament...

was bought in December 1981 for my darling DCC.  He traveled with his job and wasn't sure he'd be home at Christmas, this was just the right size to fit in his brief case and fly with him across the country and back again.  

Over the years Santa has lost his reins and the horses and wagon have been re-glued a few times.  They've made more moves with us than I am able to remember, without looking it up, and still, each Christmas, there they are to bring back the memories of 35 Christmases past.  


Thank you little Christmas ornament!

breaking free...

An internet/Facebook friend has allowed me to use a photo she took, as my muse for this bit of fantasy.  


The 'moon' was lifted from a moon shot I took several years ago.
