Miss Emma Sue




My little scraggle muffin Emma was posing for me in my make shift studio in the basement. I needed a model and she offered so I took her up on it. Which one do you prefer.. Straight out of the camera or black and white. I like black and white on some pics but not this one. I love how her body is faded out in the depth of field. She was a trooper. We only took a few but she sat there under the lights and gave me the pose. I told her not to look at me and she didn't, she probably couldn't see me for the lights blinding her. Looking at these I realized that she needs her bangs cut.. Oh, she loves a good ole' hair cut.

Hello out there....!!

Yes, I have been lost.. no not really but I feel like it. As I signed in I almost forgot my password .. this is bad.. ya see I have been a bit busy with my other website.. I know, I know.. you are my peeps but I let things get backed up over there and now boys are yelling for pictures and so I have been sorting. I spent a few days out at the track doing this... standing under dirt bikes almost flying over me. I ran out of daylight and was switching things around and my flash came on and one kid dumped over.. he wasn't hurt and says it wasn't cause

I stuck a strobe in his face
but I think it was. I took the picture and turned and he was on the ground..opppps.... Gosh this was ten days ago... We were to have a race this last weekend and it was going to rain so they called it a practice and one little guy endo'd and the bike landed on him. I was right there so I started calling out 0rders for the other boys to stop the traffic and one to go get help. As the squad showed up so did 2 deputies..they were board so they thought they would stop by. Well then this dumb ass decided he was going to go in his tent and


start smoking pot.. yes a tent..
I wanted to say.. hey dumbass.. you could have walked off to the woods but no ya do it in a tent.. I never did smell anything but we weren't that close.
So they arrested him right there in front of everyone. Dumb Ass.... I had never seen these people before and it's one thing to get dirty at the track but their kids were filthy.. I mean down right dirty, no bath for days and walking around with no shoes on.. They were little.. Not the kind of people we usually see. Anyways, he was hauled off and then come to find out the little girl was in the tent with him.. Double Dumb Ass. I bet they won't be back. So the rain hit and we went home.

Today is homecoming for the boys.. I will have pictures soon of 8 big boys all dressed up. D even bought dress shoes..which I will also take a picture of since I won't
see him dressed up again til his wedding day..
if even then. !?!

Oh, and G bought me roses the other day and I took {I hope} some good pics of them..

I hope to be back to normal blogging to my peeps soon. We have about 3 weeks off racing but we might throw in a training day to help out one of the riders that was injured. He just won two of the biggest races and was going pro. His parents took him off their insurance for unknown reasons at this time but he wrecked in Michigan and is paralyzed. D did not know him but our neighbor has known him for years. If you would like to read about him visit
The whole racing community is pulling together to help with the cost of his recovery. I hear that the flight alone was over $10,000.00 Wowza..

Well til I can get back.. Be good

Meet the King(s)

So, 9-11. I usually spend the day reliving 9-11-01, looking at memorials, videos, and remembering. Today was different then any other year. I worked from midnight til 8 am. We don't have a TV in dispatch so I didn't catch the early tributes of the day. Actually I was obsessing over Edward and Bella.. It's a thing. I am into their whole thing right now..anywho moving on. I went home at 8am went to bed straight away. At 1:15 the alarm went off. I jumped in the shower, made a sandwich and ran out the door to gather these guys {aka-the kings, monsters, moto mafia, teenagers, the gang, friends} Myself and another mom took 9 kids to Men's Wearhouse to "rent a vest" for homecoming. Yeah,, that was fun. See E on the right in the HOOTers shirt. It wasn't long before the hooters shirt came up and he was flashing people from inside the store..good thing no one was outside. They started out wanting pink, somehow they ended up with bright aqua..they didn't chicken out on the pink, just once in the store they all agreed on this other. I couldn't find a picture but in a few weeks I will have tons to show you. After that experience I took 5 on them to Burger King. Okay, they all love Burger King.. ewww, I don't know why but they do. So they walk in and the girl behind the counter says "Welcome to the King and I am the Queen, can I help you?" Oh, that sent them in to extreme BK lounge mood. Another employee gave them crowns to wear..which if I would have said they had to wear them I would have been met with a big resistance..but he gives them one and they don't take them off til...yes they got home from their HIGH school football game. On E again... he made earrings out of these plastic pieces and walked around BK with TP hanging out of his pants. .. On the way up they rocked my car, blared the ipod, sang, screamed, TRIED TO GET SOME GIRLS PHONE NUMBER FROM THE CAR NEXT TO US....My babies are not babies anymore..they are growing up to be horny men...No wonder I have gray hair. They set my car alarm off in the parking lot and Cousin D took my car and drove around the parking lot.. yes he has his license. After a half assed Chinese fire drill in the middle of town , taking cousin D home to get his truck, drop C off and run in to use the bathroom, go to E's to get his phone and take D to his dad's to change shoes I finally dropped them off at the game. Finally around 1045 I sat down to catch the 9-11 memories on the History channel..then I came to work. I really need sleep and now they tell me they are picking up another race this weekend. Calgon take me away. ....

Oh I almost forgot.. E is turning out to be quite the little comedian... I pick them up at the game and he says he needs to call his mom cause she didn't know where he was..now it's 1030 at night and he decides he should check in with her.. I really don't believe she didn't know but anyways. He calls and says
"Yeah mom, there is a bad wreck on XXXX road and we can't get down so I am staying with D"

"Well mom there really wasn't a wreck but two [2] animals got into it and we are stopped on the road waiting for an officer to question us"

By this time, I'm going.uhhhh?

"No I think it was Big Foot and a bear, a big bear, oh and two deer and a llama, [that would make 5] No the officers want to know if we saw anything"

By now I am laughing so hard...

Then he says, "Oh you should really try these coffee monster drinks,,yummy, No the officer gave it to use cause it was the end of his shift."

I said to myself...MENTAL NOTE.. this kid can come up with some off the wall crap...END NOTE...

Migraines?

Today- Thursday Sept 3, 2009 I have been MIA this last week. I started with a headache last week. I'm not sure of the day cause it was a headache and why should I worry. I know I went to bed with it Friday morning and woke up with it Friday around 3pm. This weekend it came and gone, we actually were childless Saturday night and I didn't want to do anything cause my head hurt.

Okay, so come Monday it really hurt. Monday night I was sure I was having a migraine. I was in bed all day and around 7pm it hit. I was in a dark room but it was like fireworks going off. So I went to the chiropractor Tues and he popped, cracked, pushed, shoved, rubbed and everything so I thought I was fixed.. NOOOOO. I decided I needed to go to my family doctor so I had G call and make me an appointment for Wednesday. He ordered a CAT scan and put my on meds. I was a loopy mess last night. I was so drugged but I still had my headache. Tomorrow I have my CAT scan ..wish me luck.

The weird thing is that Monday I did try to eat a few cookies and milk. I went to dunk my cookie in the milk and missed the glass. I have been noticing that I have "missed" things here lately and I thought I was just too I don't know..

Well, I am off to bed again so I can work tonight. See ya in the future.
