I need to learn how to make it look real but I had a great time practicing.

My brother took us on an adventure to an area in the Salt Lake Valley I had never been before. I used my dog training skills to get these cows to line up just perfect for this shot.....not!
(Thanks to Wunx for her work on this one) This rawhide bone was meant for big Toby but Ruby claimed it as her own. She knew she couldn't keep it so hid under the table long enough for me to stop laughing and take the shot.

A unit of cultural information, such as a cultural practice or idea, that is transmitted verbally or by repeated action from one mind to another.
The 6th Folder Meme Rules are:
1) Go to the 6th folder on your computer.
2) Select the 6th picture in that folder.
3) Write about it.
My computer photo filing system is simple enough. I started using a digital camera in 2002, so I have a file for each year starting then. This photo is the 6th photo of my 6th year of shooting digital:
For those of you who know my Mom the photo is self explanatory. For those who don't my Mom has the "gift of gab" and spends an inordinate amount of time on the phone. The only time you can really count on calling her and not getting a busy signal is between 10 and 11 a.m. when her "show" is on. Try calling her then.....if you really want to speak with her, but make it snappy, she doesn't want to miss a minute of "The Young and Restless".

Peace, quiet and a great escape from life in the valley.

Seamus came to the rescue. Fred could never be replaced but Seamus the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel helped to ease the pain and we all fell head over heals for the little guy. He grew to be loving and loyal with a heart of gold. And Ruby's best friend. Sadly for us Seamus and his family moved to Pittsburgh.When we adopted Rusty I was hoping for a relationship like this.......... and instead got this.

Ruby is confused. Why are we outside today with no coats raking up the left over leaves and sticks from the old clump willows? It was just over a week ago I took this photo of her enjoying the fresh, cold snow.
Part of living in Utah is being able to golf and ski in the same week. Great Guy is so happy when this happens he can hardly contain his joy.It won't be long before these winter scenes are back. In the meantime I enjoy the break in the cold weather to get a head start on the spring clean-up.

Grandma didn't give me enough fabric for everyone but everyone got an apron.
The best part was sharing the fabric and the memories and in a way having Grandma with us again.
