Winnie the Rescue Dog Guest Blog

LC (Little Cat) isn’t the only one who hides under the cowhide. You may have seen her cattail peeking out from under this exact spot on the Wordless Wednesday post. I took the kitty photo on Sunday when I went to my friends house for lunch

This evening I received these photos from my friend. Jen Salvatore sent them in response to Wordless Wednesday’s post.

Meet Winnie, the rescue dog.

Jen says:

Winnie…she’s our rescue dog…mostly part black lab/American pit bull.She like to play with her toys under there. 🙂

She’s was named after the movie Hocus Pocus…since she was a hopeful adoptee for October. We kept the name since she knew it. 🙂

I told Jen the pics of her pets worked perfectly with the black and white hide and that a Golden Retriever’s coat just wouldn’t be the same.

Autumn in the Trails Behind His House -Guest Blog

These photographs were taken by my grandson Jack, who is 14 and a high school freshman.

He told me recently he’d like to get into photography.

My advice to him was to take a lot of pictures, study them and look for the good light.

I thought he captured the feel of Autumn quite nicely.

Thanks Ellie, for allowing me to share your shot of Mt. Rainier, Washington. If you hit the link on the name you’ll see it’s also known as Tahoma or Tacoma, I looked up the elevation and it’s 14,411 feet (4,392 meters)

Have a wonderful vacation and thanks for sharing your photo today. Your grandma has been a blog follower and good comment writer for years.

Random Can – Guest Blog

My granddaughter Maura (12) texted me this random can of tomato sauce she saw in Sam’s Club on Thursday. I love that she noticed it, photographed it and shared it with me.

I’ve photographed out-of-place items in stores before and have been astonished at what people leave in odd spots.

The Snowman of Portersville – Guest Blog

Our family friend Shuey has done it again. Sent photos that create a guest blog post. He’d driven his motorcycle up from Niceville Florida.

“I rode up to be a motorcycle safety volunteer for a charity bicycle event running out of Seneca, PA. It was in support of MS research and I monitored traffic at an intersection to facilitate travel for over 300 cyclists riding a 75 mile course. Weather was decent last Saturday and I think everyone had a good time. The route was quite hilly and twisty; these were serious riders.”

Last Saturday Shuey captured the Snowman after his volunteer duty was completed.

The Snowman of Portersville

The Snowman is a one-of-a-kind, 13-foot tall custom built roadside attraction originally from New Mexico. In 2013, he found his permanent home right here in Portersville, Pennsylvania.”

“If you’ve followed the blog you might remember the top post of 2012 was Shuey’s guest post of the stunning Barred Owl

Start Them Early – Guest Blog

Guest Blog photo shot, taken by Grandson Charlie, who’ll turn six on the 25th. Sunday afternoon I arrived for a visit and we were in the back seat while his mom drove. He asked if he could use my phone to take pictures. I deleted the close up ones of me but thought this shot taken from his car window was a good one.
