Today my FFF will be in the form of a poem to describe a most wonderful trek

Ode to Shelley Lake

by Cecilia 11/26/21@

On a trail near here

we often walk and talk.

No matter the time of year

Sunny or cloudy

the nature we see is dear.

The trail is an adventure

Lake residents are a delight

Ducks, geese, heron, turtles 

oh my even a few 

Cormorant are near

The most magical encounter it is clear
is when we see Deer.

There are at least six deer living in the forest around Shelley Lake.  On November 17, we spotted four doe in grazing in the thicket behind the buck.
  The buck came to the edge of the path about 10' from us

He walked parallel to  to us (the lady had no clue he was so close).
The looked back at us, the off he galloped over the asphalt to the dirt trail off into the woods.

Thoroughly Poetic and Thanksgiving Thursday #45


Angel Sammy and Teddy find such inspiring photos for us

This is the most adorable photo

Mr. Policeman  I am sorely sorry
I didn't not mean to drive
so poorly.

My itty bitty kiddy feet 
got a spurt of energy. 
 As up and over the hill and thru the 
woods to Grannies we 
went for a Thanksgiving 
  Today we join 

I think these words are appropriate for each day,
not just Thanksgiving.

Wordless Wednesday


The fall colors in our neighborhood and the one behind us have been
These two are from yards about 2 blocks from home.

Last week I showed this photo of Angel Madi's Loo with a view from inside
The photo on the right side of the next collage shows the
full view of the tree.  The tree is in our neighbor's yard.  It hangs over the side of the house.

Left: out back yard toward bird feeders

Left: From the top of our driveway looking across the street
Right: taken from out back deck

This photo was taken on trash day in our neighborhood.  I cropped the photo so the trash binds would not distract from the trees.

Happy Tuesday with my Nephews


Hosted by Comedy Plus 

Oh my dogs Pup sent me the most adorable email with photos and a video 

I took the Peeps for a walk in our woods today. Many of the leaves have fallen, and I had a blast  running! 

I wanted to take along Kat & Rocky, but Mom said they wouldn’t enjoy it as much as me!

This is how they looked when we left:

and when we got home:
I think Mom was right! Ha!

Volume up please
I hope you love my video.

Dearest Pup….I think you know this but I just must say it, you are the luckiest dog in Georgia!  Crazy Kat and Rocky…don’t know what they are missing.  Butttt I guess they enjoyed the  smell mail you brought in from the great out of doors.

You are a world  class zoomer.  I think your newly healed paw has some bionic powers.  Dad had a hard time keeping up and you were almost too fast for Mom’s camera!
This was such a fun email thank you…I can hardly wait for your friends to see your antics.
Lovingly your devoted Auntie HiC

Awww Monday and Sparks with Cody and me

  Thank you to our   

Host Comedy Plus 


 Most days when I walk, I see Cody. However I'm alone.  On Tuesday November 16, my husband was with me. Finally I have a photo with my favorite 'hood dog.  Cody was in his normal spot enjoying the day.  He spotted us as we approached the corner about where the man is in the photo behind us. Cody had a spring in his giddy up that day as he came to greet us.  His tail was wagging a mile a minute.

These two quotes about senior dogs describe how I feel about Cody
The one above is a bit blurry it reads:
"Blessed is the person who has earned the love of an old dog"
I feel blessed each time I see Cody
