OMG!  No wonder small children and dogs run from me!

 It was an exciting day for the children in Sophia's class as they each were walked the cat walk in their favorite fashions.  Sophia carefully chose her clothes for the big day.  Nothing but her brightest and best would do.  I'm  very sorry I wasn't able to attend the event as I am sure each child was at their most beautiful. 

            Chicken stew and chili all around at this wonderful get together. 
Toni invited me to join her for an annual chicken stew and chili dinner the parents of one of her friends from  work have held each year for 15 years.  There were folks from all over clamoring for stew and chili, not to mention the deserts.  In fact, I met a very pleasant lady, a cousin to Sara's father, that was in from California.  She was in just for the dinner. 

Due to an intense rain which brought a rapid temperature drop there was a huddle on the back porch and a quick donning of sweaters and jackets.  As soon as the rain abated everyone re-set the tables, dried their chairs and filled their bowls with good hot vittles. 
Even though it stayed hazy for the remainder of the evening I enjoyed getting pictures of the property and outbuildings.
 This was the original kitchen to the house.

A few random pictures...

Sophia and Cohen have been giving me a great deal of their art work.  Of course, I love every picture they do and am proud for them to hang it on my door.   I  really think they like being able to use the roll of tape for hanging the pictures more than drawing them.
These are  some out buildings and a home we pass on our way to the veterinarians'.

I like the way the house has bay windows that are on both the first and second floor, the other side of the house is just like this one.
This field was golden in the morning light and I wanted to take a picture then but was not able to stop on our way in to the vet's. This was a little later in the day and it is not as luminous as it was earlier but I still find it pretty.  When I spotted the morning glories I knew I had to stop and take a few pictures on the way home. 


                                    Enjoy your day and thanks for coming by.

Pray for Cyrus

Cyrus is ill  from his allergies again.  He is back on antibiotics and antihistamines for his sinuses and for pain.  Please  remember him in your prayers.  I am not sure how he will do since he has been ill off and on for so long and is pretty worn out now.  He has been molting and that makes him feel pretty bad too. 
You can see here how his nares are swollen and he is pinkish through his white areas .  I took this picture during his last bout with a sinus infection, it is just like he looks now.  He is pretty listless and quiet especially when his head hurts.

On the brighter side Jane is still improving and looks like a different dog.  Her  hair is growing in and she has not been itching today.  She is still a bit stinky but that is not as strong as it was or else I am used to it.   In the pictures below Jane and I are talking before we go to sleep.


 Here Jane is wanting to throw Kitty Foo-Foo out of bed.  But I won't let her.  Poor Foo takes all of the interlopers with a grain of salt.  He knows we are tight.

Poor Jane hears " no " for the first time.
