Birthdays and Hayrides

My camera has a night shot on it. I really never use it mostly cause I forget it is there. Tonight at Norm's I took a picture of the pond I thought it came out well. The pond is covered with geese, they make so much noise you can hardly talk over them. When we slept with the windows open a couple of weeks back they kept me up most of the night.
Here are some coming in to for the night. They feed in other fields and roost on Norm's at night. I still love to see them go into the roll right before they land. They talk and chatter as each new bunch comes in. There must have been over 100 tonight. I do forget how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful place,


Here they are going off on the hayride. Oh you city guys really do not know what you are missing. I love to go on hayrides. I decided not to go this time scared of my shoulder so I stayed back with the old folks:((. We were all celebrating Norm, Rachal, Doug, Leah, and John's birthdays wow that was a hard song to sing!! We had chili, peanut butter, homemade pimento cheese that was wonderful. Then the best part Homemade Pumpkin Pie. Nothing like the first bite of a pumpkin pie. Thank you Kirky.

Sounds like a great fall evening for celebrating!

Your night picture of the pond is really neat, Mari. I love the look of it!

I sure wish you could have gone with us on the hayride! We had fun, even though it was a "little" too loud! LOL I'm surprised noone called the cops! LOL I hope you had fun, I always worry about if I'm a good hostess or should have done something differant. Norm was so unsure about these "get-togethers" I do at first, but I think he really enjoys himself! Even though they wear us both out! Well there will be next years annual hayride, and this time I'll get King out for hose rides for the kids, wanted to do that this year, but just couldnt get it all together....bummer.
