That's me --- in the pink! (I think I'm winking.)
I can't help but notice that what I'm lacking in ears, I
really make up for in the lip department! Gotta love that!
This picture is our first portrait from this particular
artist, and has found a home front and center on the fridge--where true art belongs!
in the Eye of the Beholder:
I don't know what
to say other than I LOVE this building and I was captivated
by it the first time I saw it! I guess you could say
that it was love at first sight. I was walking down a
street in Darien Georgia, and when I looked up, there it
was! It stopped me in my tracks and I was instantly
drawn into not only it's obvious history and potential, but
the fact that it was, as it stood, being almost two
centuries old and absolutely picture perfect!
Built in 1815, it
was once a warehouse during the timber era. Burned in
1863 and later refurbished in 1873, this tabby building was
for many years used as a mercantile store and ship's
chandler. It is currently for sale and on the state's
"Historic Buildings in Peril" list.
Some Fresh Mountain Air
Lake Logan in Sunburst,
NC - September 5, 2009
We spent our Labor Day weekend enjoying a visit with family in Asheville, North Carolina.
While we were there, we drove up into the Blue Ridge Parkway
in search of Cold Mountain, because we both love
that story and the movie. "Innnmaaannn..... Is that
crisp, cool mountain air was enough of a refreshing change
to make me want to build a log cabin up there somewhere!
(Forgetting temporarily that it does get below 60 degrees
in the winter and that I would be running back to Florida as
fast as I could!)
We really didn't expect to see a wagon train!
I would like to know just what these tires are going
to be used
for! I KNOW they were not being delivered to Mattel for the Barbie-Mobile!
Look at the SIZE of those things!!
On the way back
home we took a little side trip through Savannah, GA, and
came across this! (Please note: There is no statement being made
here concerning a particular October 31st football game.
This wild gator in the Savannah Wildlife Refuge needed to be
extracted from the water because it had a rope twisted
around it's neck. Getting the big fella out was a bit of a challenge
for the game officers, though!

The Mark of the Lion series
- by Francine Rivers -
After reading "Redeeming Love" by Francine Rivers, she
became one of my favorite authors and I have enjoyed every book
she has written! (The only other author that falls into that
category is Nicholas Sparks!)
