Saturday Symmetry and sweets

 Water tower at Angus Barn a Steakhouse

Every year on Thanksgiving Angus Barn has TURKEY as main entrée .

This year, was our fourth Thanksgiving  meal with them.  The first two years, 2018 and 2019 we enjoyed their delicious buffet.  2020 we were in the very parking lot above waiting in line for our take out only Thanksgiving meal.  

The  menu is always traditional Thanksgiving and it was delicious. 

However, this year we tried new desserts!!

Thanksgiving 2021 was our first dining experience inside since our 50th anniversary on February 14, 2020. The Angus Barn has been serving folks from near and far since the early 1960's.  They know how to do things right.  Everything properly spaced for comfort and safety.

Nature and Feline Friday Fill ins

My Nephews, Kat, Pup, Rocky, and Mom Kit thank you all for you good wishes for a speedy recovery for Dad D. 

Nature Friday host LLB Gang  and Feline Friday  host Comedy Plus

SHE aka staff to Dui and Roxy sent me this photo of an Aussie cat and an email:
Last week early morning Roxy was bouncing up and down SHE
went out to see what was going on.
Obviously the kitty was flirting with one of her 9 lives.
Roxy can get really bouncy.

Judging by the directions the geese were flying they were coming from Lake Lynn  to Shelley Lake. Approach was a bit confusing too many honkers and no leader

INCOMING Splash down

They made some waves

Friday Friendly Fill-Ins: Ellen from 15and meowing came up with the first two and her co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

1. My favorite holiday film is anything on Hallmark Holiday movies and The Holiday: Starring:Cameron Diaz, Kate Winstead, Jude Law and Jack Black
2. My favorite Christmas song is ModernChristmas In Dixie by Alabama. Classic: Angels we have heard on High.
3. If you ask me, ’tis the season for Chocolate.
4. Our daughter's first Christmas 1972 is a holiday memory I’ll never forget. She was 16 months old wearing red pjs.  When she saw what Santa brought,  she put her hand over her mouth and squealed.

Thankful Thursday from my Nephews and Poetry #46

   Today we join 

My very furry nephews, Kat, Pup, Rocky and Mom Kit asked me if they could share a Thankful Today.  Rocky sent me this email and photo.

I just want to let all of our wonderful Furiends know that our Dad had a mild stroke several days ago. He spent a couple days in the hospital, and is now resting comfortably at home. He has made amazing progress, and will hopefully make a full recovery. We are all taking good care of him.
Needless to say, we are  busy keeping an eye on Dad 'D' and napping with him.  Mom Kit is busy looking after everyone.  We might not be sending many emails for a while.  Auntie HiC will be in touch with Mom
daily.  She will keep you posted.
Pup, Kat, and I take turns keeping our eyes on him. 
😻Dad is going to be just fine❣️
Thankfully and lovingly your Nephews
Rocky, Kat and Pup 


Monday, November 29, Dad had an appointment with his primary care physician.
Mom Kit sent me this:
Good report from PCP. 👍  He has made great progress, and we are thankful. ❤️


Angel Sammy and Teddy find such inspiring photos for us

Happy Tuesday


Hosted by Comedy Plus 

While having lunch with my friend, Janice, last week I saw this painted on the side of a building.  The gorgeous tree is a bonus

Then I saw this  adorable pup.   He was certainly a smile to me.
The owner went into Chick fil A for about 1 minute to pick up a take out.  She secured the leash loop under the chair leg. Put him in the chair and said stay.  It looked as if he was considering his options

He decided to stay.

Awww Monday and Sparks

   Thank you to our   

Host Comedy Plus 


Awww look at the leaf shadows dancing on the wall

Sparks message on the wall the building.   I used the Sparks logo to cover the for lease sign.


In early November, we had some sprucing up done to the outside of our house.
Power washing and we had the front door painted.  For the last 20+ years anytime we had the house painted we had the door re-stained.
We selected 7 color strips from Sherwin-Williams 
Immediately 4 were eliminated.  We taped our 3 favorites 
by the door to see what caught our eye

This year we decided we needed a pop of color...and oh are we happy
The color is called Dignity Blue and it gives to door dignity
