    So nice to have some men around the house.....(and to have my little camera to shoot them with)!! I love my little EPM-1 and the 20 f1.7 and 45 f1.8 lenses!! It has exceeded my expectations. The jpegs are so good, they need very little editing. I have always shot RAW, but with this little camera I am finding the jpegs are so good.... This camera is a grandma's best friend.

    They love to work in the yard....

    Nice shots, Terri. Wish I could get my grandkids to spruce up the yard that way. But their idea of "sprucing up the yard" is to leave as many toys, trucks, cars, balls, shovels and buckets lying around as possible.

    If Lin (grandma) or I pick up after 'em, they redecorate by moving all the stuff to different spots.

    :eek:

    Great pics! Reminds me of the days when my grandma use to have me pull weeds in her back yard for money... $1 per trash bag - the big black ones they used to line the huge garbage cans...took me hours to fill one. Somehow I don't think that deal was as good as she led to believe it was :smile:

    It's because being a grandma is a joyful experience.
    Love your story..... We give our grandkids a little money for working, too!!

    Thank you.
