I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving.
I thought this was an good post for Thanksgiving, we have two groups of turkeys near our house that have at least thirty birds each, sometimes they walk up our driveway, these photos were taken in our driveway. Ranger has a fit when he sees them he runs through the house as fast as he can barking as loud as he can, and then when I let him out after the turkeys are gone, he runs as fast as he can up the hill in back of our house to see if he can find the turkeys.

Sunday, October 5, 2008



This Saturday was a very sad day for for us as we had to have our little friend Murray put down. He came to live with us when he was six months old, he came from an abusive home and it took a long time to gain his trust, but with a lot of love and patience his trust was gained and he became a very important part of our family. Mur had the sweetest spirit of any dog I have ever had, and was quite a little character. He loved to steal things from the other dogs, and in his younger days we called him the flying Mur as he would get a running start and leap for the bed or sofa from four or five feet away without a thought of where he was going to land. Mur was almost 15 years old and lived a long happy life with us We loved our little Mur very much and he will be greatly missed, it just isn't the same here without him.

Little Falls contrast

These shots were taken about two weeks ago.

This is the top of little falls dam you can see what is left of the boards that were on top of the dam in the last post.

This is a shot from the old bridge

This is a shot a little down stream from the reflection shot in one of my past posts. I thought this was quite a contrast from the calm of last fall.

These shots are of the old bridge at the dam I think it use to be part of the old highway.

I thought this is an interesting way to add hight to the dam. you can see this across the top of the dam in one of my previous posts.

Spring is here

Ranger and I went out to Riverside State Park today and did some roaming. It got up to 78 degrees today wow. I thought this tree was interesting, I guess it couldn't decided what way to grow.

These flowers are a true mark of spring.
