Mom's surgery went well. She is tired but doing well. Now, we're in a holding pattern until we hear from the pathologist.

Ransom Paid...Hostages Released!

The required ransom, a memory card, has been paid and the photos have been released from my cell phone. Thanks PO'd!

These are just the highlights of the twelve pix:

I could not get a good picture of Van Gogh's Irises because of the constant crowds that gathered around. Meanwhile, Monet's Haystacks painting got very little attention. I wonder if people understand the work involved in creating this painting. if my favorite painters.

The panels in the skylight were adjusted periodically and the change of lighting gave the paintings an entirely different appearance.

This was my favorite piece at the museum. Rarely have I seen a woman of African descent presented so beautifully in "classical" artwork. This sculpture was an excellent choice as the main feature in the room in which it was displayed.

A Few More Getty Pix

These aren't the pictures that are being held hostage in my cell phone, but they are great examples of the architecture found at the Getty Center.

A Day at the Getty

Today I got up early and drove to Los Angeles for the sole purpose of enjoying the Getty Center. I had a wonderful time!

Just what the doctor ordered...a Zen moment!

The garden was absolutely gorgeous! I just love what they've done with the bougainvillea.

I love gardens! (Can you tell?) I just wish gardening wasn't such a chore.

If you have ever wondered why God created hills, here's the answer. Leave it to children to figure it out.

I took a few great indoor shoots with my cell phone (I couldn't figure out how to turn off the camera's flash.) Now I just have to figure out how to get the pictures out of the cell phone and onto my computer. I tried sending myself a picture message but it did not go through. I'll post some of the indoor shoots as soon as this problem is solved.

My feet are hurting because of all the walking I did today, so Monday looks like a beach day. I'm determined to get out and put some vacation in my summer.
