A Sunday Drive

I took a drive all by my lonesome yesterday, and it was really nice.

I came across these two horses, but they wouldn't let me get very close. That brown one appears to be blind in one eye, or at least that eye is blue and the other one is brown. It makes him look spooked all the time.






This big house appeared abandoned. I wanted to go inside badly, but I decided I'd break my leg jumping the fence and decided against it. Twenty years ago, I'd have gone in. I'm smarter now.

The obligatory old red barn.

I moved on down the road...

To a muddy creek.

The water on the other side of the bridge was clear.




The road to nowhere. Again, I wanted to go see what was there, but I didn't.

On the way home, I stopped at the dog park to see who was there.

Friends were made.

This guy (Darby) kept hanging around me the whole time.

I think he liked having his picture taken.




There wasn't that many dogs there, probably because it was so hot. I was wet with sweat and red-faced and ready to go home.

Once I got home, I cooled off, took a shower, changed my clothes (into my jammies at 3:00), and took a nice nap in my dark, cold bedroom. I love my bedroom. Then I worked on this doily for three hours in the evening while watching true MURDER stories on the TV (Dateline or something). I'm putting the edging on tonight and can't wait to show you.

See ya!

  3. Years ago there was a German Shepherd that lived close to us. He had an eye that looked like the horse eye . . he had a cataract in it.

  14. Oh how cool!! I love adventures and it looks like you had a ball. The old rusty gate (with the chain and lock) look like something out of a Stephen King novel. The same with the old house...

    Thanks for taking us along with you...

    Hugs to you,

  16. Great photos Pammy Sue. That horse does look a bit "wild". Neat house; it doesn't look that old to be abandoned (maybe from the 80's?). I would have been tempted to have a look around too. Can't wait to see your latest doily. Hope you and the Captain are doing well. Heather

  17. The house looks so forlorn and lonely. I hope that someone buys it someday and brings it back to loveliness. xx

  20. I worked in my yard yesterday running the weed eater and then went around with the Roundup. It was so stinking hot. Didn't get it all done but I had had enough of trying to kill myself and so I went in the house and got a bath and dressed and went shopping alone. I even stopped at Cracker Barrel and ate supper alone. I need to remember my camera. I traveled around the country side going to and from and saw some excellent photo opportunities. I think tomorrow evening I will grab the camera and back track. My photos around here are boring. Your doily is a lovely color and I already read the next post and it turned out so pretty. Someone call the doctor, Pammy Sue has doily fever!
