Good Fences


Thursday is a day to have a good time with Theresa at
 http://run-a-roundranch.blogspot.com She has many friends that drop by and share their good fences.

My granddaughter and family live in a gated, fenced in addition (this is not their addition). However, nothing can keep nature out when it is out of control.

This is shot of a storm that was in their area last week. The bright spot in the middle is lightening. Hardly can see the fence.  They lucked out and did not receive any damage.

Outdoor Wednesday

Time is truly fleeting by.  Here it is Outdoor Wednesday with Susan.  She shares some really interesting outdoor scenes at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com

This is a Trout Lily. In this area, a few grow. It is called the Trout Lily Walk.  Various groups go and stroll through the area. It gets this name as the leaves look like the markings on trout fish. It only has one flower at the top of the stalk. Flower is yellow on the inside. They are pollinated by ants and takes seven years to make a mature plant.

Blue Monday

Another beautiful Blue Monday with Jeanne at backyardneighbor.typepad.com
Last week, I showcased a very special young man in my life.  Today, I am featuring another one.  The sad thing is he lives out of town, and do not get to see as much as I would like.

Most young fellows at a certain age might want a hobby horse.  Not this one.  He prefers the real ones. Rodeos are the name of his game. He gets it honest, as his dad worked the rodeo circuit for a long time.  He left it for the executive world.
This is Sam. He just turned 11. He specializes in Calf roping, also known as tie-down roping. The goal of this timed event is for the rider to catch the calf by throwing a loop of rope from a lariat around its neck, dismount from the horse, run to the calf, and restrain it by tying three legs together, in as short time as possible.  Timing is crucial  He is very good.  Won several awards.  Some of the nicest belt buckles. Last year, he got his own horse, Lollipop, which makes it easier using the same horse all the time.

 
Before every performance, Sam and his friends have prayer.  No one suggested this.  They did it all on their own.  It shows a lot about what kind of home they have been raised in.


He would also make a fine TV personality.  This is a "pretend" broadcast when he recently visited a local TV station.

Good Fences

gets our attention each Thursday. It is nice spending the day with our hostess, Theresa. To see what great fence she shares along with all her friends, go to
 http://run-a-roundranch.blogspot.com

For this type creature, I would like the fence to be a little stronger than this one.


Since the weather has not been normal this year, the bluebonnets are starting to bloom early.  The best showing will be the first two weeks of April.

Outdoor Wednesday


A truly beautiful, sunny, windy day on Outdoor Wednesday in Texas. At
http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com you will find so many interesting outdoor sights.


This does not show how beautiful this little tree was.  I had to take it a hurry out the car window, due to traffic.


These cones around the numerous road construction that is going here.  The freeways have been redone and most confusing as to what lanes to get in.  I stay off of the freeways.  Take the back roads, but there is construction on them too.

Blue Monday


Nice to be sharing another great Blue Monday with Jeanne at
backyardneighbor.typepad.com

For the next weeks will be sharing some young fellows very special to me.
 

It definitely is baseball season for the big guys as well as the little leagues. As most of you know, Layton grew up on Blue Monday.  Blue is his favorite color and he liked being featured with Sally.
He has participated in most all sports, but golf is his favorite.  Presently, he is on the "Dirtbags" baseball team.  He plays center field.  His team is doing really well.


This is a snapshot of his team and coaches.  They pray before each game and afterwards as well.  Kinda to the left of the picture is the back of No. 23, Layton. Time passes much too fast, enjoy your little ones while they are small.  He will be 12 in August.

Pink Saturday/Anything Goes


After a stormy week, thankful for a Pink Saturday with Beverly.  It is a joy each week visiting her and all her pink friends. Over at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog you will find a variety of things. We are now allowed to share more than pink.


I found this pink mansion on the internet.  Never saw a house this pink in my life.  I would not want it, but it is gorgeous.

Good Fences



Since this is St. Patrick's Day, found this little fence with green on the internet. My others are nothing to get excited about, just country, fenced in animals. Theresa, our hostess, shares some of the best fences each week at

Blue Monday

A big, special welcome to Jeanne, our new hostess for Blue Monday. No doubt someone is smiling down saying "Well done my friend". Now, lets all go over to backyardneighbor.typepad.com and check out all the blue showings.

Blue Monday grocery shopping. I hate going to the grocery store regardless of when or where.
