Well, I think I've finally gotten blogger to work this morning! And my little camera is taking pictures just fine. It'll be a nice (small, lightweight, portable) addition to our Zambia trip.

So here's the exchange I captured this morning on my little digital:

Got anything to play with, Mom?

There it is! I see it! It's MINE!

HA HA, Ridge! I got it and you don't!

Ah, c'mon Ridge...I was only teasing. Give it back!

Ah...these kids...when will they learn!

When will we?

When it comes right down to it, who of us truly owns anything? It's all just entrusted to us for a time (as they say, hearses don't pull u-hauls). That's a great reminder for me as I jet across the Pond to another continent. Well, two actually -- first Europe (London), then Africa (Zambia).

There but for the grace of God go I.

'Til next time,
Joan (whose fingernails are now far shorter so she can key on this keyboard without hitting two keys at a time).
