Some mornings just pull you out of bed.

I will be so sad when this barn is ever torn down. I love how it looks in all types of weather. I love how the wind will open one of the shutters and then close it again.
This morning I looked out to see thick fog and heard my camera calling to me...........Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaa get your butt out of bed and take me for a ride.
Yes, inanimate objects do talk to me. I grew up KNOWING that when the lights were turned off in my bedroom, my dolls talked to each other. It didn't bother me, it was like listening to a tree full of flocking birds, chattering.

Murphy and I stopped at Puppy Day Care to see about his room accommodations this weekend and for some reason he thought he was going to see his buds, so what could I do,
shrug, I told him, "Just for a little bit."
I was making a late reservation for this weekend. Mainly because John was sure that he wanted to bring Murphy up to Minnesota with us. I didn't say a word although my tongue is sore from biting it.
I waited until it dawned on him that the car would be crowded and taking care of Murphy in Justin's newly refurnished house might be a problem.
NOT to mention introducing Murphy to their two cats who have had a summer of upheaval in their lives. I can just see the expression on Shari's face when they start peeing on the new carpet.
Not a good idea to take Murphy.
So, the good folks at Waggin' Tails told me that they could easily put in in............are you ready for this..........................THE BUNKHOUSE.
These ladies crack me up. This place cracks me up. John wonders why I buy them bags of chocolate all the time but I love these people. AND, they made room at the last minute for THE MURPH.
The BUNKHOUSE is the second floor of the building. They have a series of LARGE rooms where staff sleep. Murphy will be sleeping in Josh's room. It's a queen size bed, low to the floor, HD TV, small kitchen area and bath.
The floor is tile and there is a large window letting in lots of light. There are two large dog cages with quilts in them, assorted dog beds scattered on the floor.
The small dogs can either sleep with Josh, on his bed or on a doggie bed.
Murphy isn't going to want to come home.
He's having a sleepover then day care with his buddies then back to the bunk house for the evening. I mean is that too much or what?
I'm just glad they had space for him.
Now, I can enjoy MY visit with my grandchildren and son and dil without worrying about what Murphy is up to, walking him, picking up after him, etc. and I don't have to stay in a motel farther away that allows dogs.

After checking out all of this I took some of my favorite back roads home and took a ton of pictures, about 70 I think. I've separated them into the albums for Trees and Barns and Scenery around Verona.

If you are interested, want to just relax for a couple of minutes and take a break, give them a click, put on the slide show, increase the seconds to 4 or 5 and just sit back and hopefully, ENJOY.

Also, if there is a picture that you really like I don't mind you copying it and using it in your artwork. If you remember to give credit, that would be nice but certainly not necessary. What is more important is if you do use a picture in your art work, please try to remember to give me the link to see it. I would LOVE to see what you have done with it.

Now, GO CREATE, remember it's good for your soul. :)Bea


  1. Sounds like it's a dog's world!
    Love the new header...again!:) All the foggy pics are very pretty too. I remember when I visited Maine, the fog and mist in the mornings and the sounds of the loons were just wonderful. Felt like I was in another world. I'm working on the "blue chair" piece, from your photo. Will show you when I'm done. :)

  2. OOOOOoooh that's right I remember you saying you were going to do something. I can't wait to see it.
    I looked over at the blue chair when I drove by the farm today. It's starting to fall apart. :(
    Nobody had been sitting in it and there is a morning glory vine that has wrapped around it and then some of the wood at the top is coming apart. :)Bea

  3. Such beautiful pictures. Love the wide open vistas!!

  4. Thanks for stopping by, Seth. I guess I never get tired of taking pictures of where I live. :)Bea

  5. I love your new banner. Those brown color of the horses looks beautiful against the green field and fog.
    Love that barn too. I'll have to take a coffee break while looking at your collection of pics!
