I also bought fudge, over a pound. It was from http://www.joshuasfriends.etsy.com, they are not on our team yet. The fudge helps families with handicapped children. It is very tasty, but I will have to find some friends to take some for sure.
Bev Rickey was also set up there, we are long time buddies so I sat with her at her booth. Her sister Barb was visiting from Iowa so we just had a grand time. I saw so many people I knew, I really do miss being social.
TOO cute aren't they. More creations from http://www.ginnymackscrafts.etsy.com/ they are very well priced and I would so love to see her sell some. some one out ther must have a little person who needs a Halloween bag?

They are feeling better now, this is Vickie feeding them. The other ones name is Casper he is just a little larger than Red. I love it Vick feeds calves, way to much work for her.
Click on this to make it larger. Gosh is he not creepy, he could snap your finger off before you even knew it. Look at it's eye though it is really cool. I was telling him I bet I could get away from him and his head came out of the shell and looked right at me and stared. I took a step backwards.
Gotta go get ready for a chat with Bluegrass Etsy group.

Will everyboby be glad when Igo back to work and have less time on the computer??
I am the OFFICIAL NEWBORN CALF WATCHER, Bet you didn't even know that, that was job did you??
Since I have nothing else to do but read the Mitford Series in my hammock I have been designated to watch over the neighbors cattle. The picture of the vultures are Black Vultures. They are really a nasty breed. They wait till a cow has calved then they bully their way in or wait till Momma has left and kill the calf. Yesterday I watched this little one be born then watched the vultures swoop in and harass the Momma. She was a great Mom and never left the baby. I think I have an admirable job, don't you.
The other picture is of my walnuts. This is just a Small fraction of them They cover my side yard. The dogs and I scooped these up into a pile waiting for Doug to help us pick them up. No wait the dogs didn't help, they thought it was a game and carried them off!!
I am featured in a lovely Treasury tonight. Thanks Deb it is lovely to be thought of. One of the nicest things about Etsy and Blogs is you meet so many great people. Pleas go look and give it some love. Hey Ang your there too.
I must go. I decided that a White Russian would make me feel better. WHOO it sure does, but my fingers cannot keep up with my brain. Nice to know that when I drink I not only talk a lot I type too much!! :)

These are great aren't they. It is surprising how many outfits you can wear them with. I have a pair also (these are on Etsy) and I get compliments everytime I wear them. As much as I dislike winter, I love fall for the beautiful colors and the great clothes.
Every time I go to the Doctor, I learn more about my arm. Actually I was perfectly happy not knowing a whole lot!! I have significant bone loss, (OK where did the pieces go my brain screams) That is why there was a donor bone put in along with the plates and screws. Dr ordered a bone grower machine?? I wear it for 30 minutes a day and in is supposed to help hasten the growth. I can't go back to work for at least another 30 days. I know my arm can't, but my brain would like to. This is the longest period I have ever been off work and not being able to do much. Guys this is getting difficult only so many books to read and biscotti to eat. Told Dennis yesterday that we would have to move the hammock inside soon, you know by the front window!!!
I added a new feature last night, just a few of the blogs I read daily. If you have never read the Daily Coyote, it is a must. It will give you your aw www how cute every day. Just be careful it is addictive.

Memopause, what a clever name and any of us who are close to that certain age..... well you know what I mean:)
Speaking of Treasuries I have a new one today, I started with no plan. Well actually I find one picture I like and then go from there. I like the colors of this one. Fam (Fabulou Artistic Moms)has had several very talented artists join our street team and it was easy to have so many new artists to choose from. If any one reading this wants to join just Convo me. It is a very supportive group. www.thebrasshussy.etsy.com is another one who finds her way in a lot. I love her earrings, silly huh, but I love the brass.
Have a great weekend, we will be celebrating my Mother-in-Law's 90 b-day on Sunday

I think that this is adorable, there is one in lime green and I should have one in orange tomorrow. What a cute loot hauling bag for $5.00. Her Etsy address is
Take a few minutes and check out her store, she would love it.
This is what I wake up to every day. After more than 30 years I still think it is enchanting and peaceful. Those are Great Blue Herons in the pond, we have both those and white egrets nesting close to us. Funny story about the lakes and local geese. We are in a very bad draught and the lakes are almost dry. The geese have always used this lake and when they fly in at evening, (we're talking 50 at a time) the water is so shallow they don't float, they just kinda plop and stand. It really is funny to watch.
The sad part is to watch all the rain go either to our west or east. I hurt my shoulder July 10, Dennis has mowed the grass once. We started watering the big trees because we're afraid they were dying.
