My Vacation/Staycation pictures.!

Anyone know how to make postcards out of digital pictures? Some of my family recently went on a two week vacation and drove from Texas to New York. They sent tons of postcards to me and my Dad about every exotic thing they saw, went to, and experienced.

I can't afford any vacation. I'm very poor. I'm also very petty...So..I'm going to take pictures of various rooms in my house and yard, make them into postcards and show them where I've been while they were off gallivantin' around, havin fun and livin the good life.

I think I shall start with a picture of my television and write a little message on the back..

"I was on vacation too! Today, I rode to the top of the Empire State Building.. it was lovely. Oh and guess who I saw?!? Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks!! I didn't know they were an item! They were looking so intently at each other! SO romantic.. They had some kid with them but I didn't recognize him. See ya later Gator *giggles, Bill"

Next, I think, will be the Kitchen Stove.

"Oh my goodness, We ate here today! This is one of the most exclusive eateries around! They are so progressive, elite and hip, you get to cook your meal yourself! Isn't that just sooo fun?!? I even got to serve another patron. He was an elderly gentleman in his 80's. He was so hilarious too! After I served his meal he looked at me and said "Where the Hell's my drink?" I just laughed and laughed!
Well.. toodles! off to see more sights! Love and kisses, Bill"

Next, Hmmm.. maybe I could try an exclusive hotel AKA.. my bedroom.

"This is where I stayed the night. It was so nice.. Oh My Goodness! Strange thing..the bathroom was in the hallway... and I had to share it! Oh..This place was SO Bohemian! you'll never guess who was coming out the door at the same time I was going in!! THE LITTLE OLD MAN FROM DINNER! ROFL! Again, he made my sides ache with laughter when he said "Better light a match, butthead" LOLOLOLOL! Ohhh my, he was the most colorful man! Gotta Run! Au Revoir Mon Ami!!! Bill"

Well, you get the idea. They will get a good laugh out of it...I hope.

I would kill for that stove. It is beautiful. I am doing a staycation as well. If we do go somewhere it will close and in Texas but really close.

Bill said...

Kingsqueen, I did NOT know that.. Good to know, My evil plot may come to fruition, thank you!

Mommy's Kitchen, I love that stove too, but it ain't mine lol. I would have taken a picture of mine but I was a afraid the flash would set off a grease fire... The pic of the TV was mine, thats it.

Thank yall for stopping by, You're the best!

Nice blog and I posted on Southern Plate that I was volunteering to be be another sister of the heart if you can adopt one more. I always read your comments on Christy's site. I admire the fact that you take such good care of your papa. Have a great weekend.

Elaine, What a sweet thing to say. Thank you. Always room for one more sistah! If you have a Facebook, come find us. Christy has a link for her page and you can find me on her friends list. I just hesitate to post my page where all the world can read it.

Ok Bill -this is another day so I don't qualify as a stalker. I am not on Facebook and I am not too computer literate which is such a politically correct way to say I don't know beans about the computer except email and surfing. I do know something about beans though as I love to cook and in a frugal manner.
