Day 275: 'a sign' that Fall has arrived..leaves on the sundeck


Day 276: so 'bear-y glad it's almost Friday…

Day 279: a 'perfect day for a walk' on the dyke..that was until, the golden boy found something really 'stinky' to roll in, just beyond those trees! someone had two baths when we got home, and one of them was with a bottle of tomato juice!!


Day 280: Good morning!!.."Do you mind?..I would like to eat my breakfast in peace?"

Day 288: October 15,1985  it was my turn to get flowers, now 28 years later it is our darling daughter's turn..not one, but two beautiful bouquets!! Happy birthday, Carlie!!


..half of the month of October is now over….hard to fathom that November is not too far away..

Are you one of those ones who never forgets a birthday or an anniversary? head is full of ‘that kind of information’..

..on this day, October 16th, 2010.. three years ago, Blogville changed forever..gone but not in peace, Bruce and Margie.



  1. Thank you for remembering Bruce and Margie. My mind doesn't retain that information any more. I didn't even remember our anniversary this year and neither did Jim. I can't imagine taking a picture every day and coming up with a caption. I think you're doing an amazing job.

  2. That first lake picture is stunning! And you're doing a wonderful job of coming up with pictures :)

  3. I was just thinking about Bruce and Margie the other day. Hard to believe it happened three years ago. Harder to believe it happened at all. :c(

  4. It's hard to believe it's been three years already. What remains is sweet memories of both Margie and Bruce. Sue, your pictures are so interesting and so varied that it makes your "photo a day" project look easy!

  5. Love the pic's,Donna and I miss Margie & Bruce too, she always kept my comments going.Just wish I would have been able to meet them, was on my way when they broke down in MO ,but they called and said they found a tech. so I turned around, Be safe out there. Sam & Donna..

  6. We have the same little 'guardian angel'.

    You have done a marvelous job with the challenge. I am sure this has been a fun but huge adventure.

  7. What a challenge you've taken on in the photography project. Don't know I'd have the fortitude or imagination to hang in there! Well done! I especially like the pumpkin shot; something about it just seems to capture Autumn. Hang in there, the year's flying by!

  8. I, for one, look forward to your bi-monthly photo posts. :)

  9. Enjoyed this months happenings in pictures as much work as it is I want you to know it's been enjoyable as a reader of your blog. A much needed updated by us will be posted soon. Hope you and Doug have a great upcomming weekend!

  10. I was just thinking of Bruce & Margie yesterday but had forgot the date of their tragic day. I am one of those people who does not have a good memory for birthdays & anniversaries. Not unusual for me to forget what day it is. I imagine that photo a day committment could be quite a challenge. You have done well though:))

  11. Oh No, Tucker you didn't!!! Molly was chasing a funny looking "cat" in our yard late one night a couple weeks ago. When all of a sudden she's coughing and sneezing and running straight for the back door. OH THE SMELL! "DON'T LET HER IN!!" I didn't have tomato juice, only had Newman's Own Sockarooni Marinara, but it helped! I hope Tucker doesn't have the same eau de cologne on! LOL


Aww nuts…

How on earth does someone do a recap of the past seven months?… The last post that I did was on May forward to today, December 3...
