The Home of Daddy's Day Dare! ~ I am just trying to stay above water

My First Picture Blog

So today my oldest and I set out on a 600 mile journey on a family matter.

For the first hour of our trip her favorite subject was her favorite YouTubers, as she calls them. She follows them, is impressed with how many followers they have (so many more than moi), and tries to emulate them in her new YouTube site (she is creative and off to a good start).

She was telling me about her one favorite YouTuber and how she has a Video Blog on YouTube or V Blog for short.


It gave me an idea.

If she is impressed with these V Blogs maybe her old man could impress her by doing his own Picture Blog of our trip. I am not really set up for taking and editing a lot of videos but I can sure take some pictures I thought. Why not impress her with a P Blog of our trip?

So I hurriedly started taking some pictures of our trip for the P Blog and start a P Stream of the adventure.

Here is the first pic, as we sped up US 95.

As you can see we were all smiles…..

Next in the P Stream  was more fun and a little foolishness…

My next P came at lunch as we made a quick stop for some sustenance….

And trying to keep the P Stream going, she got me as I checked my teeth after lunch.

I tried to hold the P’s back a little as we approached DC. It is always tricky there and I needed to focus and keep both hands on the wheel.

We eventually made it to our destination some 4 hours later.

Exhausted, we picked my Mom up and took her to her favorite restaurant in her home town.

And so after we ordered I had time to take another overdue P for the blog…..

But I wasn’t done yet!

I took another P after dinner with my mother in the car….

Somewhat tired after dinner and the long 11 hour trip I did find the energy to take one more P in the car as I parked in front of our destination…..

You can see on my face how satisfying it felt; to get this long day and the P thing behind me.

So that is it!

Some of the highlights captured of our 11 hour car ride back to my hometown .


My very first Picture Blog. It was actually fun (as you can see).

I think it came out OK.

What do you think?


I wanted to do one more shout out to a long time Follower/ Followee, Anna Lee West.

I often try to be funny in my blogs or write for effect. Anna IS funny!

Really funny I think.

And while her posts are getting fewer and fewer these days, like some of us, her latest post does show you that she hasn’t lost a stitch of her sense of humor.

So at the risk of losing even more followers (after this last post) I would like to invite you to check out  her latest post, I Am Not Fit For Calamity, as she struggles to keep it together during a power outage…in the middle of the day.

I hope everyone enjoys the best week.

Thanks for dropping by.

I will try to do better next time…

  1. Thank you for your nice words. Yes, we had fun on the way up in the car and it helped pass the time. Thanks for dropping by!

  2. At first she did not as I sort of rained on her YouTube station. So I tried to smooth it over in the blog. Thank you for sticking around Anna. Your brainpower still rocks.

  3. So how’d she like your post?! Did you get some points?

    Thank you sooo much for the shout out! I’m SORRY I’ve been MIA … I got super sidetracked and gave up all my brain power to work. NOT planning on that happening again. Thanks for sticking around! 🙂

  4. Lovely smiles !

I would love to hear from you...
