  Hidey ho one and all I missed all and will be catching up over the next few days

We were visiting friends in Boonville, NC, which is about 1 hour from Boone, NC.

Sir Charles insists his friends call him Charlie.  Charlie decided when he was a kitten he wanted to live with our friends.  He belonged to family down the road.  He was always at our friend's house.   His original owners told our friends it was ok if Charlie wanted to live with them.  They had him neutered and vaccinated. He is now 7 years old and helps tend the vineyards.  I have more photos I'll share of Sir Charles aka Charlie.

The weather was refreshingly cool and they skies were so pretty
Picture of our friend's 'hobby' vineyard.   After they retired for teaching, they decided to take a few classes at Surry Co. College to learn all about growing grapes.  Years ago it was twice this size but they 'hobby' quickly turned into work so he downsized.  Once  year in late September he opens the vineyard up to 
'pick your own'.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday #86

We are back from our trek to the lovely NC Mountains.  We had a wonderful visit with our friends.  I'll be sharing photos starting tomorrow.

  Today is Poetic Thursday hosted by our pals Teddy and Angel Sammy 

at Two Spoiled Cats

Today's photo prompt is

I don't like heights
they give me a fright. 
I inherited this
(I am sure ) from my mom. 

When I was 11, we went to 
New York City to see the sights.
I can still see all the lights
on Broadway blinking brightly.

The elevator quickly took us to  the top of the
Empire State Building.  As the doors opened,
my mom had a 'death grip' on the neck line of my shirt.
With her other hand she had a tight hold on my wrist .
She was nearly cutting off the blood supply.
I felt like I was choking.  
In spite of the 8' chain link fence,
 topped off with at least 2' of curved barbed wire, she thought I 
was going to fall over the edge.

Serene Sunday

We took a short local road trip last Tuesday.  

Church seen on the way.

Horses looking outstanding...out standing in their pasture.

Falls Lake

I forgot my camera?!! πŸ˜±πŸ˜•and obviously my brain.

Photos taken with my new iPhone from the car.

This is my first iPhone not the latest version but one that I am quickly becoming very fond of my versatile sidekick.  Phone, step counter, camera and even better it is sync to my iPad so the photos I took automatically went to the iPad for easy download. πŸ˜„
