From mid-November

There is a strip pit that is at the edge of nearby 'community.'  It has a walking path all the way around it, so Roger and I have went there two or three times to walk.  I kept seeing this mockingbird and finally got the change to photograph it a couple weeks ago.

Illinois barns

I was searching for barns to post...thinking I was going to have to go waa-aaa-aaay  back in time to find something that had not been posted or at the least not posted recently.  I had forgot all about a drive we did over around Arthur, Illinois on April 21, right before I took my blogging break....
Isn't this a pretty setting for the barn?
It was a rainy, wet day...
None of the pics are fantastic...
but they give you a slice of the area.

I will be linking these with Tom's Barn Collective.  Thanks, Tom, for hosting the meme.

Saying Good Bye....

I wasn't going to post any more till after Thanksgiving, but then it will be Tex's last time hosting Good had to do this one...
I know I am only one of many that will miss her....she is always there with a friendly or funny comment and has shared her animals, and her world with us.
So while we say good-bye to autumn, we are also saying good-bye to someone we have all come to know and love.
Tex, I hope whatever you choose to fill your time, that you have as much fun with it as we have had with you.  The blogging world certainly will be different without you.  Thank you for hosting Good Fences all this time.

And I want to take this opportunity to wish every one else a Happy Thanksgiving!

From a hot day in Illinois

I have messed with these photos, trying to make them passable...running out of patience with them so I am stopping.
They were all taken the day we took Lorelei to the Aikman Wildlife Refuge.  All taken in the middle of the day.
Converting to B&W was the only way to make this one at all presentable...
That led to trying one of the others...yep, I think I like it better this way.

Going to link to Tom's Barn Collective.....

Across from Union Hospital, Clinton

We were to the hospital again this evening, for an x-ray.  We had noticed this tree the past few times we have been there, but I had not taken the time to photograph it.

Did you ever seen anything more gorgeous?

Beauty ending...

I noticed these leaves the other day as we went in the hospital, so on the way out I paused to take a pic.

Look me in the eye.....

I bet this hawk recognized our Rav4....I chase him on a pretty regular basis.  Or else one very similar and in the same area.  This one was taken today...
And this one was taken October 21.....

Falling treasure

This barn is over near Arthur, Illinois....the photos were taken this past spring.
It is my entry for Tuesday's of my favorite memes.

From the Aikman

We go to Arthur, Illinois fairly often.  We were there last spring and I picked up a little booklet about attractions in the surrounding are.  I notice that soon the Aikman Wildlife Adventure would be opening near Arcola.  We immediately made up our mind to take Lorelei once it opened.
We saw several camels while driving was in the petting zoo...but not either one of these.

A treasure with a nice fence...

I usually don't combine posts...but this one fits both Tuesday's Treasures and Good Fences.  I am not sure if this house is lived in or if it is part of a park we visited near Danville, Illinois.  I am sorry I do not remember the name of the park.

And here is one not zoomed in:

I am going to link to Good Fences in the morn, if I remember.  We have 'things' we have to do tomorrow, and I won't get to visit till evening.  I plan to try to visit a few that have already linked to Tuesday's Treasures....

Thank-you Theresa and Tom for hosting these memes...they are favorites of mine.

Living on a storm door

This spider lived on my storm door this fall...I didn't have the heart to kill him, and I wasn't about to catch and release somewhere else.  You would not believe the mess it made though!

For the Barn Collective

I almost forgot it is time for the Barn Collective...thankfully I had only to look back to November 1 to find some barns...
they are all from Parke County.  I wish there was a way to get a better view of this one, but I will take what I can get.
I have featured this barn before, but this is a new picture.
Just a bit of added beauty with these two.

Down a country road for some Good Fences

This was on the first side road we drove down heart almost skipped a beat when I saw this view.
Have to show a couple more views..
with this at the end of the shots I took.

If I remember, linking with:

Good Fences

 I will try to get in some visits, but Roger has two therapies tomorrow so not sure how much I will get done.

Somebody's treasure...

This used to sit across the road from Patton's Corner.  (I think Patton owned it.)  We passed by there a few days ago and I did not notice it.
This is my entry to Tom's Tuesday's Treasures.
