Has it REALLY been 2 weeks?...

Mornings getting cloudier and "cooooooler"...Fall weather is setting in...FAST!

Wow...how time flies! Yesterday, I received an e-mail from Chelsea's mom (Chelsea, btw, is one of Mollie's offspring, the VERY cute yellow lab who has appeared on our blog on more than one occasion!) asking.."is everything okay? Haven't seen much activity on your blog." Well, everything is okay, thanks for asking Kathy! We have just been so busy with the garden, the dogs, etc., etc.! But I guess in reality, a bit of laziness on my behalf should also be factored in there somewhere as well! :-)

Anyway, just wanted to post something quick and let everyone know that I have NOT forgotten about your blogs...I will be doing some overdue "blog visiting and posting" tonight...promise!

Enjoy your day!

Spiderweb and the "Crew"

Find any? No! Not yet..you? Nah...wait, wait...here's some over here...I located the mother lode of rabbit poop!!!
Molly posin' for the camera...

Checkin' out the "web"...and you didn't think dogs could surf...

Now this is true Mother Nature Art!!!

That would make a cool name for a band!!

Some more pics of what I hold dear in my heart...EXCEPT SPIDERS...I squish them...sorry!!! But, I left this one alone...couldn't find the artist...

It's Monday night...do you know where your Blogger is?

I'm back!
I'm back in the saddle again
I'm back!
I'm back in the saddle again
ridin' into town alone by the light of the moon I'm lookin' for old Sukie Jones, she crazy horse saloon barkeep gimme a drink, that's when she caught my eye she turned to give me a wink, that'd make a grown man cry
I'm back in the saddle again
I'm back!
I'm back in the saddle again I'm back!

Okay...I know, I know...enough already of the Aerosmith lyrics...but come on...you cancel an entire tour JUST because you fell off stage at Sturgis...come on...we'll start calling you Stephanie Tyler from now on...

If you can't laugh at yourself, what good is it...right?

Can't wait to catch up on all of YOUR blogs...that is where the COOLNESS and CREATIVITY resides...so I'll keep this short and sweet...hope you enjoy these pics AND the lyrics...I thought they were pretty cool for a Monday night post...the sunrises are really starting to migrate in a South Easterly direction...

Fog, fog, and more fog...

When is it going to end...ahhhhhhhh....every morning we are "fogged in"
All complaining aside...at least it provides for some good photo ops...

JD took these...so she deserves ALL the credit...will add these to her photo portfolio, because you never know when we'll need to borrow $24 million dollars and photograph's can be worth a lot of money...right Annie Leibovitz? Money...the root of all evil!!

Anyway...I'll end my goofy sense of humor blog entry here and leave you with this parting message...

Enjoy your life!! You deserve it!!

Peace everyone...

Game on...

Garden ladder to nowhere...with a cuke vine finally climbing it...

" Togetherness..."
Can't wait to sample the cauliflower...among other things!!

Go ahead...might as well finish it up!

We had a surprise awaiting us in the garden Saturday morning...SOMETHING helped itself to one of our melons! I left him a little surprise down there last night...we'll see if he falls for it! I'll keep you posted!

On the positive side...we harvested more veggies as you can see...hopefully the tomatoes will be ready soon...getting impatient!

Friday night campfire...

Can you see the serpent...?

Fire...so relaxing, so powerful, so destructive...
Cool close ups...

"I saw a werewolf with a Chinese menu in his hand, walking through the streets of Soho in the rain!"

Welcome back..."to me"! Wow, it's been a few days since I posted but feels like a week..I was kind of in a funk or something..couldn't bring myself to post anything..don't ask me why, just didn't feel like it. However, it didn't stop me from perusing your blogs..which always inspire me! ;-)

Just wanted to share some cool campfire pictures that JD took Friday night...Fire is so cool to watch..it is mesmerizing to me...I don't think there has ever been a campfire that hasn't provided me with some sort of cool visual content, be it a face or in this case, what appears to me as a serpent or cobra coming up out of the fire..Check it out!

It's a beautiful morning....

Molly the "Corn Dog"
Finally shucked...and ready for the compost bin!

This was our dinner...well not all of it! Just corn, butter, salt and pepper..mmmmmmmm

Freshly picked minutes earlier...

We have had several ears with "multiple ears within an ear"...What causes this? Did we have two types of corn too close to one another? If anyone knows why this happens, please explain...

This is why I love where I live...I'm soooo fortunate and thankful!

Morning everyone...hope you have big plans for your day and even bigger plans for the holiday weekend! Be safe and most importantly, spend time with the ones you love because life is to short not to!

The Greatest Prank Call Ever...

I was cleaning out one of my directories on my office computer and ran across this hilarious prank phone call that Tom Mabe pulled on a telemarketer. For those of you who don't know who Tom Mabe is, he is a regular guest on The Bob and Tom syndicated radio show out of Indy and also plays the part of Donny Baker on their morning show.

This contains some adult language and content, but was okay to play on the public airwaves, so I hope you get a good laugh and think about the next time a telemarketer calls you..oh..the possibilities are endless! :-)

More Fair pics...

Cows without a tail....kind of like "eyes without a face" circa 1980..Billy Idol

Female Muschovy...a must have after we get our chickens!

Jan and I weren't sure of the breed? Faith..is it a Clydesdale?

Guess what? What? Chicken butt! Inside joke for SFG! :-)

Quick..someone call Ross..I found Marcel!

Okay...I warned you that I had an odd sense of humor..just some "Friends" trivia there..did you get it? No? That's okay...most people wouldn't! Marcel only lasted one season and he was very disliked by the cast....Poor Marcel!
