Looking for Gem and Zim....

I always love visiting The Run ARound Ranch and seeing Gem and Zim...the horses that live there.  I always love the look of them on the alert...so I thought this horse we can across the other day was looking West...towards Texas...looking for those two beauties.

Snow covered Friday's fence...

It is time for Friday's fences again...I started to post this another day, then thought that I would save it for today.  I know the fence isn't real prominent, but it sure is pretty.

Photo overload....

It is time for Barn Charm again...a big thanks to Tricia.  I don't always thank her, but I do appreciate her hosting it.

I took the photos of this barn yesterday...so thought I best show it while it is still in season!
 I almost used the above as a stand alone shot...
 but then I know how I love seeing different shots of the same barn so thought I would include these.
 I actually have pics of this barn taken in a different season, you can see it HERE. Not much has changed.
I do see that the electrical cord that was leading to the ladder is missing...but the ladder is still there.  Also notice the door up top...and look at it in the other post...the other photos were taken in the spring of 2011...well, they were posted in the spring of 2011.  I am assuming I had taken them close to the time I posted them.  Anyway, hope you enjoy.

Lazing on Sunday afternoon....

Look closely--how many did you see at first glance?  I hate to admit this but I didn't see the fourth one till Roger said something and I looked back as we drove away.

Something about red doors....

There is just something about red doors....they really appeal to me.  This is the doors of a church that is near the library in Terre Haute....just across the street from the parking lot.

Searching through the archives

It is late, but I am attempting to join Friday's fences once again.  I had to dig through the archives for the first two...
but this last one was from tonight...

When they were kittens....

When I brought these two home, they were inseparable.  They always slept together...wrapped around each other.
Don't they just put a smile on your face?

Sort of a repeat....

I have posted a photo of these two trees at another time...but I don't think it had the blue, blue sky that this has.  I might just be able to find them again now...we happened across them by chance both times.  There is just something about big old sycamores that I love.  When I was younger, I did not like them at all.

A Barn Charm post....

I almost forgot it was Monday and time for a Barn Charm post....so trying to hurry here and get it ready to post.  I have had this week's barn in my folder for quite a while.
I am not sure where this one is at...but I think north of us and still in Indiana.

It is not falling apart, at least.  And I like the looks of it.  I do wonder why the windows up top are painted over.
I know one thing, I am ready for some bright sunny weather once again.  Ready to ramble and find more barns.

TLC needed

I have had this ready to post forever it seems like...it is a barn that is over in Illinois I believe.  It needs quite a bit of TLC.
We drove down to the Goose Pond Wetland area yesterday evening hoping to see something/some kind of birds.
My blog buddy Mary had been down there a while back and saw pelicans and I was hoping to see some.  We were not disappointed.
We were very lucky in that there was a group of them at one pond that was close enough for me to get these shots.  Notice the 'growths' near the end of the beaks on some of the ones above...I have no idea what it means.  I have not did any real research on it...only looked at Cornell's All About Birds and they did not mention it, but their photo showed it.  (These photos are definitely better if clicked to expand the view.)
It was as if they were trying to do synchronized swimming....They would swim straight ahead as in the first shot for a bit, then turn and swim towards the little island, and all would duck under water at the same time.

Edited to add:  Read Carletta's comment to learn about the growth on their beak!

A post while I have the chance...

I have meant to use this for a while now...not the greatest shot.  Taken at wrong time of day as we passed through Rockville.  But still, think it shows the beautiful work.  It is kind of funny, I think this is beautiful, but would not want it for myself.

We are home for a couple days at least...Ms. Lorelei is with us.
