Murphy inside the van looking outside.

Cool enough on Friday to take Murphy to the Post Office so I could mail something.  He WAS in the back seat.  Moved himself up to the passenger seat  while Maura and I were inside and wouldn’t budge for the short trip home.  Yes, I worried about air bag deployment and the seat belt dinging alarm sound the whole way.  We made it. He does have a harness that attaches to a seat belt for car trips.

We were safe inside the house as Mark held the iPad showing the violent storm while I shot the rain and blowing trees outside. This is the storm where Laura and James lost power for 5 days and Marlene and Donald( Roanoke VA) lost it for 8.

Maura waits inside looking outside for the guests.

Here is the inside of the ceramic fruit bowl Mary gave me when I visited her at Easter time.

The Jesus statue contained inside the clear box was photographed on this trip.

    July 21, 2012 at 10:22 am

  17. These are beautiful! I loved Maura’s photo the best, Murphy’s picture takes a very close second.

    July 21, 2012 at 10:47 am

  18. I like best the picture of the little girl looking outside. Both the picture and the girl are charming. :-)

    July 21, 2012 at 11:11 am

  19. Maura’s reflected smile in the glass door says it all. Another great shot, Ruth. Murphy and Max would make great driving passengers. Together ,with both staring out a window, they would look like a Disney movie.

    July 21, 2012 at 12:45 pm

  20. Murphy and Maura win hands down :-) Love the hats too.

    July 21, 2012 at 12:46 pm

    July 21, 2012 at 2:03 pm

  22. Maura looks adorable and Murphy – well he looks like he is dreaming of chasing cats!

    July 21, 2012 at 4:24 pm

  23. connie

    I smiled when I caught the reflection of Maura’s toes at the bottom of her photo- priceless!

    July 21, 2012 at 4:40 pm

  24. Various images to match various definitions; all fantastic. As usual. :)

    July 21, 2012 at 6:49 pm

  25. I like the picture of Maura where she waits inside looking outside for the guests.
    Love it how her toes reflect :)

    July 22, 2012 at 7:48 am

  26. I have to write quick, it’s Coltrane here signed in as Greg. I have a message from Murphy. Let me out! Come on there’s things to chase and I have to stay 71 pounds so I need to run!

    July 22, 2012 at 12:33 pm

    • Hey Coltrane. U type good.
      I like to chase rabbits the best. How does the garden taste? Garlic?
      Your dog pal, Murph
      P.s. say hi to Greg

  28. So many great images. i think the reason you haven’t appeared in the pingbacks is because no where in the post have you actually linked back to the WP page. That is how you get a pingback. Maybe if you link to here: “Check out fellow bloggers posts. Get the inside scoop.” then it will work

    July 22, 2012 at 9:35 pm

    • Good tip. I will try it. I must have done it without realizing it on other challenges but never connected the result.
      Thanks Jo.

      July 22, 2012 at 9:40 pm

  29. These are beautiful shots Ruth! :-)

    July 22, 2012 at 9:59 pm
