Lucy stretches out by the fire
February 25, 2015
 The other night I tried laying down by the fire
and sleeping like Lucy....I did fall asleep as
the heat made me completely comatose!
BUT I could not stretch myself out like she can.
I swear she grows longer ..... she's such a Yoga cat!
Be sure to thank Steve of BFDude for Feline Friday!
And for heavens sake have a splendid day!

Saturday Six Words and Sunday Shadow Shots February 21-22, 2015

The Friday Meanderers take a hike.... 
We drove a little past Callahan-
got to Masterson Road where we
parked our cars and walked 4 or so miles ...
The first mile and a half was uphill....
is this really meandering we asked?
Eventually the road became easier as we
crossed the East Fork of the Scott River... 

Here's a wheelbarrow waiting for spring...

A well aged fence post

They call this mesa "Lovers Leap"

Eventually we got back to our cars and
headed to the Etna Brewery for
a splendid and well earned lunch!
It was a very fun day!
Hike over Here for Six Words and
Here  more Shadow Shots!

It Was Feline Friday! February 20, 2015

which is why I am late once again
posting for Feline Friday.
Thanks to Steve of BFDude for Feline Friday!

Magpie Tales #257 Pesky Angels

Action Figures by Edith Vonnegut
Listen you two!
I'm just about through
With your Super hero toys
You're not little boys!
Stop with the torch
Fly out to the porch
Or I'll take this machine
And I say what I mean
Your life will suck
If I use my Electrolux.... 
Thanks to Tess Kincaid for Magpie Tales
Have a great week!

Saturday Six Words and Shadow Shot Sunday February 7-8, 2015

Logging industry relic-
 great photo opportunity!
A few days ago we went by this "wigwam"-
Luckily I am married to a very patient man
as he nicely stopped the car so I could spend
a bit of time photographing the inside and outside
of this lumber industry relic.
As you can see I will be back by myself
to slowly spend time making more images.
I love old rusty machinery.
Especially ones that have such history.
Check this information out!
Meanwhile have a super day!
And don't forget to go here or here
to see more Six Words and Shadow Shots!

It's Feline Friday! February 6, 2015

We were over at our neighbors house for dinner....
and while clearing the table we spotted this little face....
If you look hard enough you can see their
calico cat ......she was on the outside
of the kitchen window asking to be let in for dinner!  
She's happy now....inside and getting a full tummy.
Thanks to Steve of BFDude for
Feline Friday. He started it because
he wanted to convince all of us
that he really truly loves cats.
And be sure to also check out
Sandee's  Comedy Plus blog!!
Have a great day and even better weekend!

Magpie Tales #256 Life in the early 60's....

Image provided by Tess Kincaid of  Magpie Tales
Come on baby
Let's do the Twist and Mashed Potato
Who needs sleep?
We were so cool
Thinking we were sophisticated
Doing the Monkey?
Awkward teen years
Thinking the worst of ourselves
We were just growing wings to fly
