Alice Cooper at the Clearfield County Fair
The wonderful stage curtain...what we stared at for 20 minutes before the concert started. It rained briefly...just enough to wet things...the wind wrinkled up the curtain and the stage crew had to fix it. They ended up taking it completely down and then re hanging it. This gave us a look at the stage they were trying to hide! ;)
This is Alice...when he first walked out on stage. This is how close Billy was...without a zoom lense on his phone.
Any of you who truly know me...knows that I could go on and on about this concert...and most of you have probably already heard me ramble on about it... ;) Soooo, this time I'll just leave you with Billy's pictures! Just remember...I'm going to another Alice concert in September...and...I'll have MY camera then! ;)

Billy & Danielle at the Snowball
Billy and Danielle went to both of their school's Snowball Dance. They were the same night, but they pulled it off. Most of their time was spent at his dance...because it was at a local restaurant that has a beautiful ballroom. Her dance was in the high school gym. I scanned this picture and for the life of me I can't get it into a program where I can edit the size. It scanned as a normal piece of paper size...I can't crop it to just the picture. My patiences are fried, so it's just going to have to post this way! LOL

Winter --- Uggh!
Here's a photo from last year. BUT, amazingly the front porch looks EXACTLY the same right now! Yes, it does. The only difference is that it's about 10 degrees outside right now and there are still Christmas lights hiding underneath this year's snow! Last night's temperature was double digits BELOW zero! It's been freezing at work, but I guilted them into turning up the heat...so at least today it was in the lower 60's at work. By the middle of next week we're suppose to hit outside temperatures in the upper 50's. OK, I'm being pessismestic and I don't believe it! BUT...that's what they are saying!
We had a wonderful Christmas....I even had a few days off work. My sister and her husband were here Christmas Eve until the 27th. So I got some good quality family time...and even took a day off work (the 26th). Well, I had to wake my sister up at noon to go shopping. BUT, what I didn't tell her, is that I had already been to Walmart in St. Marys for the first go-around of after-Christmas wrapping supplies!
All is well...and I'll try to post more pictures and be a more consistent poster. First, I have to learn how to get pictures from my digital camera onto the computer. Don't ask...the stupid computer is missing *something* and it keeps telling me I need the Windows Melliumn disk...which I do not have...hey, it isn't in with the recovery disks! I'm not sure if the new printer I bought will read the memory cards. It's supose to...but when I was installing it I got the pop up window asking for the Windows ME disk...so who knows! Worse case sceanero this old 'puter is going to my son's friend's house for a major work up! ;)
Right now I have two teenagers and a 27 inch TV in Billy's bedroom...and a pizza in the oven. Should be an interesting evening...especially considering it's almost 1 a.m.!

Horses of Gettysburg - my two favs
General James Longstreet...I found this monument by accident...Bill was looking for a bathroom. He parked in this grove of trees and I went for a walk.
Here's a close up...this is not telephoto lense use...I was actually this close to this monument. It was pretty close to life-size and that's a pretty descent sized horse he had! :)
This is a monument to one of the Virginia regiments...Bill rolled his eyes at stopping at this one. He was looking for the aformentioned bathroom when I spied a horse on top of this monument.
Here's the very top with the use of the telephoto lense and some pretty cool backlighting from the afternoon sunshine.
