This above shot is one of the roads we traveled down to enlarge and enjoy.

I hit some of those magical keys that published this against my will. Every so often I manage to find the correct combination to do something, having no idea what I actually did.

Anyway, I have some decisions to make, and while they are not all that important in the overall scheme of things that really do matter, I still have troubles making them.

First, because of other happenings we actually got to go for a drive today... and I did get some photos I really, really liked and think you will enjoy as well. So choosing one to post, or one series is going to be hard.

Then I have been tagged for the 6 Random things about myself by Deborah over at The Cloud Messenger. I want to do it but not sure it will get done tonight. But I am thinking on it. It is one of those that I have seen before and thought would be fun, but was never officially tagged so never done it.

I have finally chosen pictures...I really thought the old truck I might should save for Sepia Scenes, but it just didn't work out as well when I tried it as some of the others so I am going ahead and posting it.

As you can see, we got a little more snow today. It was quite fun to be out in it, on the back roads of Parke County. We have driven all over that country up that way and today we were still on roads we had never been on before.

Christmas at Sarah's

I tried to mess with this one and the one of the tree in photoshop the get the warm glow from the lights but didn't do too good. I was using the point and shoot and did not think to try different settings.

I absolutely love the wreath--well, she actually made two of them but they look basically the same. And as for the Christmas tree, Otto has only ate one snowflake so far. I am here to tell you that his stomach is made of iron...he has gotten into so much stuff and I think she ran him to the vet the first time or two and basically they didn't do anything. Nothing ever seems to slow him down.

Yesterday we were down there and I was just sitting reading..I am not sure how I had my hand. But he was sitting back staring at me intently. I just motioned with my forefinger for him to come to me and he was there in a second. I did not say a word other than to look at him and do that. I am about convinced that if you will let a dog, you can almost communicate without words.....

And it is so funny, our old dog here can be laying about sound asleep, or she could, she is getting so old that she really is out of it when she is asleep now, but we could start talking about her without ever saying her name and her tail would start wagging. I can look at her and smile and she starts wagging her tail.

Oh, and Keesha's radar is still on...yesterday she came out to see Roger and me, but then went back to her bed in the bedroom and didn't come out all the time we were there. Till about 20-30 minutes before Sarah got home. I have watched that all her life where Sarah is concerned. She used to always know when it was time for her to get home from school, and Sarah went to Florida a couple times with friends of ours. Both times, the evening of the day she was getting home, Keesha would start pacing and watching out the windows, going outside and going over to the gate and just staring down the road....

Oh, Bubbie is home! He has lost weight and he is on antibiotics. He doesn't like them too well, and I almost think they upset his stomach. He has acted very strange...didn't want anything to do with us. He finally came and got in bed with us this morning, but then I had to get up and give him his pill so now he is upset with us again. Plus I wonder if the antibiotics makes his stomach feel bad like some meds do ours.

Well, that is the report from here today....
