Symmetry Saturday Skies

 Taken from the car with my new iPhone 13
Last week we finally kicked our 40 year old landline to the curb
This is one of my very first photos taken with my new phone.
I am quite pleased.

Cold mornings followed by blue clear skies
or is it clear blue skies?

Pleasant afternoon walks to my delight.
Trees standing tall, branches bare
Leaves covered yards now
blown to the curb.
Stretching for blocks some neatly piled high
Lining the streets on both sides
As cars pass, they blow everywhere

Soon the city will have their leaf sucking monsters 
slowly driving down all the streets

Good bye to the leaves and all the trees

Happy Tuesday

Thank you to our 

 Hostess Sandee at Comedy Plus    

Last week everything about this photo made me Happy

Taken on the back loop of Wooten Meadow Park, there is an unpaved trial behind the trees.  Maybe when it isn't so wet I can explore more.

I expect many of you read the poem, Trees, by Joyce Kilmer in school.

If not, here it is

Many years ago, (probably mid 1990's) we hiked in Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest which is located in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina.  My mind's eye remembers sun filtering thru the very tall trees and the aroma of evergreens covered in morning dew. 
(Golly that was almost poetic, lol)

"This forest is one of the Nation’s most impressive remnants of old-growth forest. The forest contains magnificent examples of more than 100 tree species, many over 400-years-old, and some more than 20 feet in circumference and 100 feet tall. This 3,800-acre forest was set aside in 1936 as a memorial to the author of the poem “Trees,” Joyce Kilmer, who was killed in action in France during World War I. This forest, part of the Joyce Kilmer-Slick Rock Wilderness, is maintained in its primitive state. The only way to see this forest is on foot. A 2-mile trail leads to the Joyce Kilmer Memorial and loops through giant trees. A restroom and picnic tables are located at the trailhead."

Awww Monday with Pup and Rocky

 Thank you to our   

Host Comedy Plus 

Dearest Auntie HiC

 Pup has always been reluctant to share his bed with me.  According to him,  I’m “jiggy” and unpredictable. 😹

I’m making progress…
I’m trying to purrr-suade him that 
I’ve matured and calmed down since first arriving on the scene.

Come on Big Guy, scootch over a bit.

Will keep you posted❣️

Lovingly your mature(ish) Nephew ❤️Rocky

1.Dearest sweet Pup and Rocky.  
First Pup this last photo of you us all kinds of g o r g e o u s.
OMDs those chocolate brown eyes and shiny furs.. Auntie is almost speechless.

2.  Dearest Rocky MOL MOL it takes a while to live down wild child streak you had. Purrsistence and Purra-tience will prove to Pup that you are sincere...and a wee bit of massages to his head, paw and noggin might work too.
Lovingly your devoted Auntie HiC
