I'm going to make a few more blogging comments and then show some random shots from the week. We have a T Bones game tonight, as our season winds down. It's in the 70's outside... and we have talked about wearing jeans to the game tonight!
One of the things I have noticed (favorably) lately is that more and more blogs have done away with word verification. Thank you, Bloggers! There is nothing more tiresome than sitting down to read blogs of a morning, and having to verify, verify, verify. I can't read the numbers half the time, and am constantly taking my glasses off and drawing close to the screen, over and over, when it is on.
Another thing I've noticed, even on some favorite blogs, is that the blogger is still setting picture size at
It is possible to go from small, to medium, to large, to the one I use... "extra-large". It really makes it so much easier for those reading the blog to see the things about which you are writing.
I started out at medium four years ago, and I am satisfied with "extra-large".
There are several blogs I would LOVE to see enlarge their pictures... because they take lovely ones.
I did not get to go to the fair last night, as my friend has kennel cough in her kennel right now. An AKC breeder and shower of Pointers, she had not thought about the fact that we have our dear old Ranger here, with a compromised health. We erred on the side of caution, because even exposure to her might have brought it home to us. I did not want to take the chance.
Our own Leavenworth County fair is next week, so I will have some pictures of that.
I don't know if you can see what's in the middle of this picture. Yesterday, on my way to the estate sale, I took a wrong turn, or rather, missed a turn. I saw a break in the vegetation, and as I pulled off the opposite side to turn around, I realized there was an old barn and silo in all the trees! My gosh... you could even see where the road into it was. I wonder how long it's been there.
It saddens me to see these abandoned houses along the roads. Someone is cutting here, but the house is decrepit. Some have been swallowed up with vegetation. I always wonder who raised their families here, and how they came to be abandoned.
Woo hoo... here's five of the roosters hanging out in the old henyard.
Buddy, on the left, has taken on the leadership since Rambo disappeared... even though he is diminutive, he is the boss, believe me!
There are only 17 birds left in the old henhouse, and of those, 10 are roosters. Pretty soon it's going to be the Boys Club.
It took her almost two hours, but she finally got Aflac's egg down her mouth. Aflac lays a two-yolker almost every single day now, and I let this one stay in the dog house an hour too long.
I can't believe she did it.
When Keith and I visit on the patio in the evening, the dogs like to kibbutz.
The shadecloth over the henspa yard is still holding up pretty well.
Only the end of July, but I'm gettin' in the mood!
We're also discussing Christmas, because you just can't plan too far ahead.
We were treated very well at the Hereford House of Shawnee, last year, and we think we're going to call them this week and reserve the same room again for this year's celebration. Keith's newest grandson will be due about the time of our party! That will be the greatest Christmas gift two years in a row, because little Brynn was born the day of, last year.
Everyone have a great Sunday!
