Follow The Leader

This one had to be pulled out from the past because it was perfect for the Theme.  This is a series of photographs I took in Scotland.  The first one was when I happened to look over the edge and see a group of sheep coming up the path.  The second I saw the other sheep further out and started to watch them.  The third they were all coming toward the path and the fourth there are no more in the field.  I concluded -- they were following the leader.  

The pictures should be viewed from the bottom up.  Sorry -- I couldn't tell how they were loading.

Hangs on a wall - posting for February 24th

As I said in an earlier post - we were visiting friends in NH this past weekend.  He is a multi-talented musician.  Hanging on his wall are a guitar, fiddle and a mandolin.  He plays them all with equal talent.  You will also see above the instruments a picture of the group he plays with!  Our friend is the last on on the right.

Spelling Errors

I was on-line today ordering The Mile Post which is a book that gives you a description of every mile driving thru Alaska.  It had a bunch of links and I really got lost out there for a while.  I ended up on a Web Site for Chicken Alaska.  I thought I'd do some research and see what kind of campground I could find.  This was the description of Chicken Creek RV Park.  I think they need to have a spell check set-up on their web site.

We were up in New Hampshire visiting friends yesterday and went by this in a farmers field.  I'm sure many of you don't know that this is a manure spreader.  I'm guessing that this is one of the routine Chores that had to be done when the planting season came around.

Boy - posting for February 21st

These are my "Tartan Boys"  -- they are wearing multiple Tartan materials so I have no idea what Clan they are from.  I do see Nova Scotia Tartan on both of them and a Canadian Maple Leaf so I am guessing they are at least from Canada.

Who put that there? - posting for February 20

I have to tell you - I've been admiring Grants pictures of Nova Scotia with all the wonderful colors and I had this one from last summer with the beautiful yellow boat!  I just had to post it.

Who put that there is a great Theme for this as there was this boat just stuck up on the dock!  I love the way they just pulled it up and it stays there.  If I did that the next tide would be taking it out to sea.

Not Your Mother Tongue - posting for February 19th

This is a typical sign along the roads in the Highlands of Scotland.  Everything is written in both Gaelic and English.  It's a good thing it's in both ortherwise we'd have been lost.

Eyes - post for February 18th

Things have been crazy around here.  We've been trying out cars as we need to have a car that we can flat tow behind our motor home and we have finally bought a Honda CR-V!  So now I can get back to the challenge!

This is the frog that sits out in front of the Rainforest Cafe at Animal Kingdom.  I think that the eyes have it all!

This was taken on our trip to Newburyport.  It is a turning bridge to allow the sailboats to go upriver.

Rural - posting for January 16th

Another of our travels around our area.  This is a very rural area in Princeton, MA.  I found this barn could be represented by a few of our Themes but the Rural I think fits it best.  I love how they built the buildings up the side of the hill leaving the flat land for pasture and farming.

Logs - posting for February 15th

We were traveling along a back road in Sterling, MA looking for some cool pictures when we happened across this logging truck.  They had finished for the day but had this one load still on the picker.  It used to be that many men did the cutting but now they use this machine and it only takes one person for the job. 

Ice Flow - posting for February 14th

This too was taken on our recent excursion.  It is taken in Newburyport, MA.  My husband has always called this flow of ice down the river, ice cubes!  It was a beautiful day and with the sun's reflection it just made the picture.

Eight (crayons) -- posting for February 13th

We were out for a ride test driving a new car and we, of course, had our cameras with us.  We don't go anywhere these days without them.  We came across this sign and again, I made Ed turn around and go back!  That's also getting to be the norm these days.

There are 8 crayons in this sign and I just loved the colors and theme for a daycare center!

Time Goes By

Ed and I went for a ride today looking for pictures to take!  We were driving down the road towards my sister's house and we had to do a quick turn around because neither one of us could believe what we saw.

I put it under this category because it could only happen over time!

You will see it much better if you view it as a large image.  The tree has grown right over the sign.

Celestial Bodies

I took this one evening when we were at Epcot.  It was such a beautiful site.

I know it's stretching the definition a bit....

The acorn is the nut of the oak tree (genera Quercus, Lithocarpus and Cyclobalanopsis, in the family Fagaceae). It is a nut, containing a single seed (rarely two seeds), enclosed in a tough, leathery shell, and borne in a cup-shaped cupule. ...

This was taken at the stadium too.  I don't think it needs any description for this theme.

Musical Instruments

My seat at Burns Night gave me a great position for this capture.  There are two different types of drums and the pipe organ in the background.

Food Glorious Food!

You won't believe this but this was a dish that we were served in a Sports Stadium!

Candy / Turned Trail Mix

My husband is a candy lover and that makes up 50% of our trail mix which we make ourselves.  When we prepare for a canoe trip we usually buy all sorts of things to go into the trail mix.  M&M's, Juicy Fruits, Jelly Beans, small all sugar stars plus the good stuff like peanuts, granola, candy coated almonds.  My husband says the sugar gives a good push to our energy and the nuts and granola sustains us.  We usually package this in one cup packages and of course we always have enough to give away to anyone we meet on the river.

This is the flowers from a family wedding.  They didn't have a professional photographer so I took the pictures for them.  This is straight from the camera.

This is a catch up picture since I missed posting earlier in the week.


This is an Antique Inkwell that belonged to my husbands father.  The only adjustment made to the capture was to lighten just a touch.

This was part of a set at Hollywood Studios.  I thought that there would be a use for all of these windows!  It was a really great car show that took place in the forground but I liked the windows better than the cars!  The only thing I did to the picture was to straighten the image.

One Dozen

A friends daughter gave us some eggs on Friday evening.  They were the green and white ones!  I thought what a way to show "One Dozen" with the color in the bowl from the non-traditional eggs.
