5 things...

Trying to think and do the Willy Nilly Friday 5...my mind is not all here these days.
I had a post for Good Fences over at my other blog and totally forgot to link till late in the day and by then Someone had linked for me!

1.  Lorelei is still here but not for too much longer.  I will be totally lost without her presence.  She is a bright and shining star!
2.  Did you ever see anything more beautiful than the above?  Well, I guess I have, too, but this is sure among the top in a list of beautiful things.
3.  Though I may not be busy, Roger has been.  He is making these three knives for a friend.  They will have the handle like this one.  Only the paracord used is a bright, chartreuse green/black.

4.  The biggest part of crops are in, and a lot of the ground is being prepared for whatever comes next.
This big guy is the one in the middle above.  They are out at the strip pits.  These were taken a week ago.

5.  Just a couple more from the drive home that day.  I don't know if you can tell, but this is a red brick road above.  Below, not so much.
I couldn't resist the tree though...

Leaving you with a little Neil Young

Cute photo of Lorelei, she sure looks like a bundle of fun and feel your joy. Very nice Friday Five, I know the feeling. My head has a hard time putting two together these days let alone five but I want to be supportive to Tanya so I will give it a go.

Lorelei is going to be leaving....that is tragical as Anne of Green Gables would have said. I know the feeling. I miss Eloise so much I am driving to Richmond on Saturday and coming back on Sunday just to be with her and her little pals on Halloween. I am not concerned about seeing my son...it’s my granddaughter.Love the photos. Our girls LOVE to make silly faces. In fact, my entire family loves to make silly faces for family reunion photos. OK...what are strip pits...and is that your farm? We live on one, but we sure don’t farm it...just keep it cut.

Charming post. It's so fun to see how everyone is scrambling to get ready for winter. I have one little grandson ...I can imagine how you must be feeling about your precious little Lorelei.

I'm pretty sure I've seen that same look on my granddaughter's face! I like the red-brick road. Maybe not to drive over. That tree is giving it all its got!

I can see that Lorelei is fun to have around! A character for sure! That orange-red leaf is so vivid! I'm always amazed to see the knives Roger makes!

Lorelei is so lovely, it's sad to let her go... autumn, the time of goobbyes -
A red brick road - how cool is that!

Should be the fantastic 5---Nice shots and stories to go with. The trees are magnificent---yes they are.
You know I was so into country music lo those many years ago that even though I remember other musicians I don't always remember the songs but thanks for lifting my memories.
