Fall Colors

How can you beat this view?


Found a great spot for Molly in the cemetery. She has a great view of the sunsets! Also touched up a few of the headtsones. We took the dogs on a drive in the cart and did some small chores in the yard - each time we drove by and said hi to Molly! ;)

Good Wood Hunting

Finally completed a continuous length on the fence. Filled in two sections adding over ten feet. Had to really hunt for the wood, even drug one big log across the creek and up the hill. Should give us the enough privacy for the winter.

Puppy Slumber Party

Best photo I got... they were cuddling, snuggling and completely intertwined in each other! Amy usually sleeps in my house - but thought they might have fun!  Katy is the new one - just gorgeous and so sweet!  Definitely was abused like most that end up on our corner.  She calms Jake down and is getting more and more comfortable with us.

Sweet Molly - In Memory

We lost a little treasure today... I have dreaded this day for over two years.  Such a sweet soul.  I hate to say it... but I probably loved her more than any other.  Miss priss with her little milk mustache! 

Molly wandered up at Flint twenty years ago.  We tried not to feed her, and I let her come in and sleep with me (I was on the porch during fourth of July) - I think you know how that story ended!  She didn't get along with the other kitties and she would stay in the front part of the house at McKinney  - dad would spend each evening with her on the couch in the living room.  When she came back here to Flint she eventually adapted to the other kitties and was very happy. 

She enjoyed sitting with Steve in the evenings after he worked all day on the house, probably reminded her of Dad.  She loved the back porch - was usually out there or on the ottoman.  She had become quite a little beggar, feasting on whatever she could talk us out of on our plates.  And the milk... she loved the milk. 

Already miss her dearly!

Charlotte's Decorating Army

Spiders got pretty busy last night finishing the Halloween decorations for me!

Dad used to just love the spider webs in the morning. When I walked out this morning, the light was just right and there was a mist hanging in the air that absolutely illuminated their craftmanship. You could get close enough to some on the deck so you could see the water droplets on each thread.  The webs were everywhere, even single strands making their way across all the camp lights.

Halloween at Flint Creek

Quick little decoration between the houses. Just have to keep the dogs from stealing the spider legs!
