The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai and Boo Berry —SCATTER— Chapter 10, Friday, September 30, 2022

I was out and about just enjoying myself

Doing this and that

The dog, our dog—Boo Berry Betty—had come out

Then had gone back in.

I was getting a tad bored


So, I headed to the dirt pile

This is a big pile of dirt Dad keeps for

Repairing the roads, and ditch banks

And stuff like that

So anyway, Out I went

It was warm and sunny

I decided Mouse would taste good

Right about now.




The only thing left for me to do

Blink — Time Moving Forward, Thursday, September 30, 2021

Gosh, here we are the last day of September.

Tomorrow is October.

The shadows in Autumn are just a little bit thicker now

A little bit darker, the light from the sun more brilliant

The air holds a chill much easier

Although, the middle of the day holds a tad touch of Summer

I must confess, the only time of the year, the weeds are sorta kinda pretty.

Blink…time is moving fast.

O! That Glorious Perfect Moon — Wednesday, September 30, 2020

I love taking photos of the moon

I try to capture the moon whenever possible, even with the wrong camera to pick it up.

I look for the moon in the sky, glistening bright and fresh, bejewelling our earth

Sometimes covered in misty crystals of ice…like frozen cobwebs in the air.

From my world to your heart,



Promise Me, Please, You Will Stop and Enjoy Just Today—-Sunday, September 30, 2018

In this world of many wonders, the God(s) send brilliant blessings, which we can not see if we don’t stop and look.

My email had this marvelous message:
” Hi, Linda.
A strong and fast storm blew through late afternoon today, knocking down limbs throughout the area. It moved west to east, with the setting sun breaking out on the horizon right as the downpour ended.

You know what that means:

And just a few moments before, this was sitting atop our roof:

By its tail feathers, it looked to be a Cooper’s Hawk.

Hoping you get some good rain – and soon.

Thanks. Take care.


This day, this wonderous day is the only one you have until you wake up the next morning.

Thank you, Joe!

May each one of you have a day full of glowing sunlight!

Another Job Done Until Spring—Wednesday, September 30, 2015

DirtWell, we got half of the dirt cleaned off of the settling pond! (all the edges must be cleaned off so the pond can be re-dug in the spring.)

The rest will wait until March or early April, just before the water is turned into the ditches on that field.

Hay-CustomerBoomer had a great time…but nothing compares to loading up and ‘escorting’ in and out hay customers!  Well, maybe right up there with the Mail Lady—and SHE always has a dog cookie with Boomer’s name written on it!

Evening-walkA good couple of days work! Nothing broke down, everything went smooth as glass.

You can’t ask for more than that.  🙂

Small Break and a Post Full of Rainbows–Tuesday, September 30, 2014

storm-leaving.jpgFor a small amount of time the clouds parted and blue sky appeared.  It was lovely!  The dogs and cats and I danced a jig on the very wet lawn.  It was delightful!

Then the rains came back.  Heavy wet rains complete with thunder.

We are soaked…drowned…extremely wet.

But John North sent me a youtube song about Rainbows and perfect song to go with this wet spell we are having–

A perfectly wonderful wish for a cold wet day.

2014-09-01_17-22-01_74 (2)Then Linda from Alexandria, Louisiana sent this wonderful rainbow



Rene`, who lives in Paonia, Colorado (just about an hour’s drive from here) sent me these two stunning rainbows—spanning the mountains where she lives.

Stunning Rainbow from Sara...shot by Eric Holtaus Sara from Punkin’s Patch sent a twitter photo–Brian Miner of BDMphoto

Rainbows from around the world and close to home…who could ask for more?

Not I!

Thank you, my friends!

Remember if you have a fun/interesting or outstanding photo you would like to share I will be very glad to post them on my blog—always you will have the credit!
