Life at Ten Months Old—Chapter Three, I Have Found Stuff to Do, Friday with TLC Cai-Cai, October 22, 2021

I have had to figure out How to be outside.  Mostly because I am still learning ‘stuff.’

This Spring and Summer were wonderful, I enjoyed (I still do, but it’s not the same soft stuff I used to enjoy) the lawn!

And catching birds, which I couldn’t let Mom see because she would take them away from me.

Chasing weeds, and now leaves are a huge part of FUN.

I chased grasshoppers and all sorts of bugs—which seem to be gone now.

And Mice.  I can still chase and kill and NOW EAT mice.

But my latest is catching————-RUN! THAT IS A COYOTE!!


They are so incredibly swirly, twisty, and weird that I LOVE Finding Them.

I bring them to the house so Mom or Dad can see what I found.



A Wee Gift of Magic — Thursday, October 22, 2020

There is something so extra special

When something unexpected comes your way

Taking you by surprise

That is what happened to Terry and me yesterday in the mail.

A special hand-made card-sending us strength and love as we move through this time with

Our darling little Beagle.

From my world to your heart,


In Small Shafts of Moonlight and Dazzling Sunlight—Tuesday, October 22, 2019

Here we are on a wee tour of the farm and how things are now

The moon is dazzling peeking here and there through the corn

We have deer hanging out in the corn

We have new ‘saved’ goats on the farm.  They are not young, very old, complete with arthritis. They are so sweet.

The mornings are dazzling

The Quails are so much fun to watch, and we have lots and lots of them.

The sunrises have been lovely

We have a family of raccoons

And coyotes (Sigh)

The leaves are falling, but they didn’t turn colors this year

We still have water in the canal.  It will leave on the first of November. I still enjoy hearing the rush of the water passing through our place.

AND I got a photo of a wasp in flight!  How cool that is! 🙂

We Took off Friday and Saturday—-Sunday, October 22, 2017

We decided to take the weekend off and hang out with our grandchildren

Friday was Blade’s last Cross-Country meet

Where we cheered all the kids running, but ‘specially,

our Grandson.:)

Then Saturday we went to Parachute, Colorado  where we watched our

oldest Granddaughter’s two soccer games against Telluride, Colorado

The views on that soccer field are amazing!

We didn’t get to our youngest grand daughters very first basketball game at Coal Ridge, since we couldn’t get there in enough time, but she informed us she went for a lay-up using the right foot and right hand AND she dribbled all the way down the court!

Then after visiting for a couple of hours it was time to head back home.  Neither Terry or I like to drive into the sun or after dark so we headed home around four.

We sure had a nice enjoyable break!

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,


Pink Rain—-Thursday, October 22, 2015


Last week a little storm played over the Uncompahgre Plateau…(Un-come-pah-gray).

As I stood taking a photo of the sunset and the pink rain cloud — a wedge of returning geese passed over us…calling to all who could hear…”we have returned, winter in near.”

As always your friend,
