An Unusual Sight

While at work yesterday evening I was treated to an unusual sight.  I just happened to look up and see this hot air balloon drifting by.  All of us took turns going out to take a look at it.  Fun, interesting and pretty things aren’t what we usually see while at work….especially since our building sits on a horrible accident prone intersection.




A Thorny Issue

Some of the trees in our yard are well armed.


Spider in the Hole

Glen took a nice picture of a wolf spider web.  Not sure where the spider was.  I find it very interesting that their webs are funnel shaped.  Not interesting enough to get close enough to take a picture.  That’s why Glen had to take it.


A View From the Driveway

I was out in the yard with the hound dogs and heard a horse whinny.  So I went into the house and grabbed the camera, walked down to the end of our driveway and saw this beauty.  It is one of our neighbors.



Bathing Birdies

After being away for a week in Jefferson City I am happy to be back and posting.  The weekend was spent making up for lost sleep.  Man I missed my bed!  Glen always gets up before I do and shot these pictures.  Some robins were having a grand time in the bird bath….at least until Lilla screamed and scared them all off.





Froggy Went A-Courtin

I was up late watching “Shaun of the Dead” the other night when Lilly started twittering.  She does that when she sees something she wants to chase and kill, like a moth or a bird.  I looked at the window to see what she was looking at, and lo and behold, there was a cute little tree frog.  It has a good gig going on eating the bugs that our living room light attracts.




Let’s Play

Lilly loves playing with the kitty fishing pole!





Surprising Garden Sprouting

Glen informed me that we had things growing in our garden already.  So I grabbed the camera and trekked out to the garden.  We have a village of fungus.





Late Night Visitor

I am amazed this little toad didn’t get squished by Lucy when she came thundering up to the front door to be let back in the house. 



Lap Time


Petey:  I love lap time!


Lucy:  Make room for me….I love lap time too!


Poor Glen, squished by love.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
