I Have Arrived; I am Home

 

It's true:  We arrived back from Atlanta on Saturday.

HELLO, everybody!  I missed you!

Can't wait to hear (and see, of course) the details! I assume this "graffiti" wasn't yours smile
Ginnie Hart: I plan to do a lot of catching up, Margaret, not only of myself but of you as well. And no, this was not MY graffiti...but when I saw it a few weeks back, I knew I'd use it for today. grin
Great Welcome Home post! Hope you had a perfect trip!!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Elizabeth. It's always good to come back home, for some reason. We were ready even though we had a great trip. More on that in the days to come, of course. smile
Welcome home.
Very cool shot. It looks great in black and white.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael. It's good to be home! smile

a fine, appropriate find - I hope you have found a cosier, more comfortable, homely home at home - jullie zijn nu weer thuis- welkom in Nederland! - and where it is better than to live in the onw four walls?
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Philine. There's no place like home! smile Bedankt.

Great choice of B&W.
We had a wonderful vacation, thank you smile
Ginnie Hart: It was a great vacation and it was good to come home. And to think that while we were gone, the building behind this graffiti was totally demolished! IHVJ!

Hello.. and goodbye (I'm off to Seattle tomorrow); we've missed you, too! I bet this view is very different to what you had in Atlanta.
Ginnie Hart: Passing ships in the night, then, Alan. Enjoy your time in Seattle! And yes, almost anyrthing here is very different from Atlanta. smile Thanks.
Nothing beats the joyful feeling of returning to the familiar surroundings of home after being away for awhile, Ginnie. No matter how wonderful the journey has been, it is still great to come home. Welcome back!
Ginnie Hart: My sentiment exactly, Beverly. THANK YOU! smile

Ginnie Hart: HA! Indeed, John. smile Thanks.
Your welcome home sign is a bit rough Ginnie... but you and Astrid have been missed this past few weeks....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Rough but fitting, I thought, right, Peter?! smile Thanks for missing us. We missed you, too!
Am I mistaken or is that a phallus on the right hand side - either way, welcome back! smile
Ginnie Hart: The eye of the beholder always knows, Fred, right? grin (I actually wondered, too. HA!) Thanks.
Nice having you both back Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. Merci.

Welcome home to caged graffiti.
Ginnie Hart: HA!. Thanks, Graeme. And now it's all gone. I'm glad I got it before we left!
Wonderful B&W image. Like how the dark contrast make the white graffiti stand out. Glad to hear you had a safe trip.
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, John. Thank you! Safe-n-sound from beginning to end. smile
It's good to be away... but also so nice when you get home eh?
Ginnie Hart: Absolutely, Jacquelyn. I often think about that "instinct" (?) to come back home. If we didn't have it, I wonder where we'd all be?! smile
good time Ginnie... nice black and white
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Fabrizio. Grazie.
Welcome back indeed! Hope you had a whale of a time!
Is the shape on the right a stylized p.?
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt for the welcome back, Wim. And who knows what that is on the right. Someone else saw a phallus. smile
