This is not the expression Erin will be giving today. She may threaten to kill me though, repeatedly. Here's to hoping for a healthly day for all three of us.

American Red Cross Southern Nevada Chapter - Everyday Heroes - Youth Good Samaritan: Melissa Garcia

It was another hot afternoon in July of 2010 when Melissa Garcia was babysitting her two younger brothers; Noah, three, and Sam, eighteen months. The boys were in the living room as Melissa prepared an afternoon snack for them.  Melissa heard a strange noise and turned to the boys, but saw nothing out of the ordinary.  Then she heard the noise again, she walked over to the boys and noticed eighteen month old Sam looked panicked and pale.  She then realized he wasn’t breathing. Knowing what to do because of her formal Babysitting training and CPR certification, Melissa began giving the boy back blows until the object came out; it was a small piece of thin plastic. The boy instantly resumed to breathing and playing just as he normally would.

American Red Cross Southern Nevada Chapter - Everyday Heros - Aquatics: Dee Dee Cunningham

Dee Dee, 9-years old, and five other children were swimming in the backyard of Dee Dee’s grandmother’s house, when Dee Dee was faced with a life and death situation of her 6-year old uncle.  Just learning how to jump into the deep end with his floaties on, Dee Dee’s uncle was sitting in the Jacuzzi. Unannounced he took his floaties off and made a dive into the deep end.  Coming up for water and air only once, Dee Dee noticed her uncle drowning and jumped in to save him.  Pulling him from the bottom of the deep end, Dee Dee was able to save her uncle from drowning.

More Images, Just for Fun

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

They say the best camera is the camera that you have.  I tend to agree.

Lately, I’ve been just goofing off, a prime phrase for many things, with the camera most available to me.  My camera phone.  It’s fun, the images aren’t serious, they’re just for my own personal enjoyment.

Having said that, I do, of course, share them.  I use tumblr to feed posts to my facebook fan page and my profile.  So I’ve been using one of my tumblr pages, Mojave Photos, to feed images to my facebook profile, and I’ve been posting a lot of my goofing off, daily life images to it.

Some of the images are good, some aren’t, they’re just images from around life, and I enjoy it.  I’ve actually stopped to doing Facebook status updates (mostly) and replaced them with photo status updates.  Same idea as a status update, I just take a photo of my status instead of writing about it only.

It’s a fun game for me.

What else can you ask of any art form?
