A riot of color

We drove down to Little Nashville in Brown County, Indiana yesterday...and for a change I really, really enjoyed it. The weather was nice. Not raining, not too hot. It wasn't crowded. In other words, it was perfect. And I took several pictures, a lot were at this shop.

Either one of these would make such a hard jigsaw puzzle...we looked and looked at this shop and I still felt like we didn't see everything. And believe it or not, I didn't buy anything. The only thing we bought down there was an Elmo doll for Bright Eyes. I can't wait to see what she does when she sees it.It has been very cool fall weather. Sarah and Jeremy had a cookout Tuesday night for a friend of theirs that is moving to Washington. The state. I went down and helped Sarah keep Lorelei entertained...though it was more like she entertained us. Her giggle box was easy to kick on that day. I honestly think she looks for something to laugh at.

And I got reports from both daughters about how good Otto was with the children that came. To be such a hardheaded dog, he sure is good with little ones. He can and will drag me around their yard when playing tug of war, yet when playing with a small pre-kindergarten girl...he didn't pull her down one single time. His demeanor totally changes when it is a child. Rachel had never actually seen him interact with kids, other than trying to lick Lorelei, and she was totally amazed.

And Lorelei just loves she does the cats and Shelby. And he will be patient with her as Bubbie is....
