Sunday Stills Challenge ~ Signs of Fall

For a Nebraska girl living in Southern California, this is a confusing challenge.  I drove around looking for beautiful red and gold trees changing colors.  Nope, not around here. 

Then I looked for piles of leaves on lawns ready to be raked. Nope, not around here.  This is the land of the leaf blowers and green lawns at all cost. 

I did find some color outside my door.  This is still a sign of Fall around here.

Wanting very much to show you how lovely it is right now, I drove the few minutes over the hill to the ocean. This is what Fall looks like in Southern California. 

Now, I'm going to go check out Sunday Stills for those beautiful photographs that others have posted.

Hoping your day is wonderful.

MouseTrap, The Movie Critic

Oh no, not home movies, again!
I'm going for the OFF switch!

Sunday Stills Challenge - Music

Music is my life.

It all began here ...

And on to here ...


Along with music, life has always included
horses, dogs, cats,
and anything that needed to be fed ...

Be sure to check out Sunday Stills
for some wonderful photographs.

Hey ... We're Back!

Royal ~ Love of My Life

Three years since I last posted!  Wow, that was one long trail ride.

Much has happened since I last told you what was going on around the farm.  We've added some, which was a very happy thing. And we've lost some, which has broken our hearts.

For awhile it was a bit of a bumpy ride. But now, life is great, again, with all our critters. Everyone is doing wonderfully, being good and doing everything right ... well, most of the time, sorta.

I'll gradually bring you all up to date about our cast of characters. 

There was Little Joey, the starving horse we rescued.  What a sweetheart ... and what a story!

Then there's the Golden Retrievers with their regular dunks in the Pacific Ocean, to mention only one of their many adventures.

And I don't want to miss mentioning Mouse-Trap, the Maine Coon cat who could write his own book ... or Lucy, the chicken that thinks she is a lap sitter.  Well, actually, she is.

And, of course, there was the 'touch and go' situation with Royal. He has recovered from founder and is our miracle boy. I'm overjoyed to say that he is doing fantastic.  He's such a love ... but you already know about that.

I have missed all of you.  However, I've been sleuthing my way through your blogs off and on.  That has always been enjoyable!

I must say ...... it is so nice to be back!
