It’s a little of this and a little of that and everything in between…

Can I just say CRAP! It has been a lonnnggg mentally exhausting week and I am so ready for a day off so I can spend some time with my dogs.

My county fair starts this weekend and I do not have all my stuff ready yet. I entered a whole bunch of categories but I am only going to be able to get my photos ready and hopefully my jewelry. These are the photos I have decided to go with, keep in mind this is for the amateur photography category and I am doing all framed 8X10 size.

Thank you all for the lovely comments and compliments on this photo. This photo is almost perfect, if I had only not cut the tail off of the last goose. I was so delighted when I got home and saw how clear and crisp this shot was and catching the goose with his wings up was awesome.

“Happy might be an understatement, looks like pure joy to me!

You don’t know how right you are! This is the lake at the park where we were at my family reunion and this year was Cheyenne’s turn to go with me. She was in heaven all day, mooching food from people, getting loves from little girls Fuson Family Reunion 2013 (29) and then a great swim.

“GO! GO! GO! That looks like so much fun. :)

Flea she sure WENT! WENT! WENT! all day long, she was one tired puppy that night Winking smile

Sand Spring Chesapeakes said…

“Happy Happy Dog! Love the water droplets.

Thanks JoAnn, they are in their element when in the water! I tried to sharpen it up but that was the best I could get it. At any rate I was pleased to have finally gotten a water droplet photo Smile

“Poor Maia! We had a yellowjacket infestation here last year and it was horrible…Their stings are the worst…Guess what…we have a dinosaur world about 30 minutes from here on the way to Tampa…it’s dog-friendly and our Doggie Social Club had an outing there

Wow an infestation would be horrible, you are right they are the worst, some people think they are bees but they are really in the wasp family. That is so cool you have a Dinosaur World near you and I will have to see if this one is pet friendly because I would love to be able to take one of the dogs with us on the trip.

 

I want to take a moment and thank all our new followers and those who have stopped by to comment, I really appreciate all of you!!

Well that is a wrap…Thanks to Jodi at Heart Like A Dog and her co-hostess Sue, from The Golden Life for hosting this hop. Why don’t you grab the badge and join in.

Gizmo asked…

“Is that flowering tree a crepe myrtle?”

This is an apple tree Gizmo.

Now I have a question for you, what is a crepe myrtle? I have not heard of that tree before.

Sand Spring Chesapeakes asked…

“What the heck is that bug?”

Bongo said…

“What a strange looking creature.”

Miss Harper Lee asked…

“Is that a real dragonfly?”

easyweimaraner asked…

“Is it a dragonfly?”

Jodi at Heart Like A Dog asked…

“WTF is that? It’s scary. I hope in color it’s some non-scary.“

Miss Harper Lee and easyweimaraner you are right, it is a dragonfly which just so happens to be my favorite bug Smile

And for Jodi at Heart Like A Dog here is the original, do you still think it is scary?

It’s a little of this and a little of that and everything in between…

 

Yesterday I posted a picture of the little robins, so today I thought I would share some more. It isn’t going to be long now and they will be leaving the nest. There are four little babies and I was surprised to find out that both the male and female take turns feeding them.

I have enjoyed watching these fascinating birds and their babies. Last year I found another nest and started to take pictures but then a big crow came along and well… I won’t go into the gruesome details but needless to say after loosing one baby I think the adults moved the others to a new location. I hope I am around the day they start to leave the nest so I can get more photos.

Well looking at the weather for the weekend looks like we might get some training in on Saturday. Hopefully we will be able to get some more water training in, I have been trying to get a great photo of one of the dogs launching themselves. I did get this one last week…

And this one I took several years ago of Remington, sadly he passed away last year. Remmy was a wonderful boy!
