I really wanted to get a nice shot of the dogs to send to my furry loving friends.
Man, its hard if not impossible to get these 3 to all set still for 10 seconds to snap a picture. So I got Chuck to try to help me,key word "try". He was making them set and speak for treats which didn't work so well but with a little photo editing we came up with this little Holiday Greeting.
Notice the treat at the top corner of this picture. :)

Taa daa !
More to come, but for now...

Now, before I start my Thanksgiving cooking I wanted to take a minute and thank my wonderful & thoughful TDIPT swap partner Tee for all the wonderful gifts she sent to me. You can checkout Tee's work ~here~. She is a fantastic Artist. Look at these awesome Crow and Crow bird bath she made me. Tee knows I collect Shiney Brites and was kind enough to send me some, I dont know how she was able to part with them since she collects them too. Thanks once again Tee , I love all my goodies.♥
What a way to start the Holidays!

Lucy, doing the Lucy Roll...

She does this every morning. While I'm at my desk, she takes her Kong bone and rolls and rolls across the floor on it. Sometime's Biscut can't resist jumping on her. :)))

They're back !

We keep deer feeders out pretty much year around. After a record breaking ice storm in our area back the first of the year there have been very few deer at the feeder. I can't help but wonder if some of the were killed by falling trees. Or maybe they were scared to death and afraid to venture out. I know for us it was very scary and we knew what was going on.
We are slowly starting to see more of them once again. There is a momma doe (above) who has a ear that is flipped over, I have seen her. One I have not seen since last gun season is a huge buck who had a torn year. We had seen him for years. Everytime we get picture on our SD card I rush them in to see if "Bucky" is on there. So far I have not seen him. I worry he has been shot or the ice storm got him. Deer move fast but our ice storm was like a war zone, I don't see anyway they could of avoided falling limbs and trees. If I ever see him again you cab bet I will be posting pictures.

Mammoth Spring State Park

I wanted to share with everyone some pictures I took Saturday. A couple friends & I made a little road trip, along the way we stopped by Mammoth Spring State Park. I had hoped capture some of the fall colors but we have had so much rain & wind there wasn't many leaves left.
I had also hoped to have lots of pictures of our finds in the Antique stores we went to but sadly we didn't find any finds. Everything was over priced or down right yucky. But we still had a blast.Here are a few pictures of the park.
Here is the link to Mammoth Springs State Park if by chance your ever in the area, its really a beautiful, historical place with lots of walking trails, ducks & geese.

The old Damn.

Mammoth Spring flows at an average hourly rate of almost 10 million gallons of 58-degree water, which makes Spring river an excellent place to fish for Trout & canoe.

I could have spent the whole day here.

There were so many more things to see and take pictures of but my friends were ready to move on to the antique stores.
