Random Things on this Wednesday



Summer 2009 006

I’ve never played along with Wordless Wednesday, but have certainly enjoyed looking at everyone’s pictures.  I had one I wanted to share today.  He’s cute, isn’t he?  This is grandson number Three ready for the pool.


AAhhhh!!! I got this post ready and now I can’t find who sponsors this!  Can anyone help me???  Thanks!!!


Can we talk even if it is Wordless Wednesday?  I don’t want to get kicked off the first time I play along with this. :)



Can you see me up here?

Recently we were sitting for our Granddogger, Val.


Summer tablescape 011


She looks sweet enough, doesn’t she?  Yes, she is a chocolate lab who belongs to our daughter and son in law.  Well my little girl, Magnolia did not appreciate a house guest in the form of a dog.  Quite comical because our dog who she hangs out with is much larger than Val and she doesn’t even budge if he walks by.


We did have a scare while Val was here, however.  Mags used up one of her nine lives.  She jumped up on the top of our opened garage door.  My husband, not knowing she was up there of course went to close the garage door.  She squealed to high heaven and Mr. Brown Socks quickly stopped the door.  He went over to see what had happened and she was no where in sight.  We looked for her for three hours, afraid she was hurt and hiding somewhere.  Thank the good Lord up above she came home, ran in the house and jumped up on the very top of the kitchen cabinets.  I had a cute picture of that but it got deleted.  We actually lost a cat who had the garage door come down on him years ago, so I was very frightened that Maggie was injured.  Val never had a clue what she put sweet Magnolia through!



Thought I’d share yesterday’s project.  This is going in someone’s bathroom on their toilet, so I placed it on mine to see if the fit was good.

Don’t go away without leaving a comment even though it is Wordless Wednesday!

This guy was in our front yard and by the time I grabbed my camera he was already at the neighbor’s headed for the woods.  These wild turkeys just crack me up.


Have a good Wednesday everyone.

I'm afraid you are busted and cannot join the Wordless day, my friend. I'd much rather read about your pics and know what's going on with you, though....haha. That little guy is adorable, and has gorgeous eyes, that run in your family! The cat is hilarious, and that flower arrangement is lovely.
And lastly, if you participate in wordless wednesday, does that mean all the comments are blank, too?? :)
