From frozen peaks to
sunny foothills we traveled.
This week it’s all sun.

Havin' a heat wave! It's 42! About 10 degrees warmer than the high yesterday. Wow, were Friday and Saturday blast-of wind-in-the-face days. Had to pull out gloves, scarf and winter coat. Those overnights in the 20's with wind chills in the teens were a shock to the system. Not sure how you guys in those colder places handle it, but we are not used to this so soon. Takes a while to adjust. We will see a warming trend this week, thank goodness. N.

The leaves are stilll beautiful and a drive anywhere is like driving within a picture postcard.  But my, it is raw & bitter today.  It will be 50 for a high & the night temp was 42, just feels so much worse than it sounds.  

 

@Frozenoem  I agree, most smart and well behaved dogs can be reasoned with age  2.  My Tessie is now 2 and knows shoes are not for chewing.  She seems to know the difference between small transgressions and big ones, seemed to know the difference even as a young puppy.  Her first day here she found a chicken and began plucking it.  Of course I ran in the direction of the screaming chicken & told her NOOO!  She was only 3 1/2 months old but after that she just walked past the chickens and did not even pay any attention to them.  

 

Stay warm everyone.

We set a new record low early this morning of 9*.

 

  • Saturday we celebrate Veteran's Day. Approximately 22 Veterans a day die by suicide. Would at least 22 of my Front Porch friends please copy and repost? Veterans Crisis Line: 800-273-8255

@Frozenoem  Hold up: I knew what you were saying, and you are right. I could be more mindful about photo size file; it would be much nicer to the AARP server if I only upoaded smaller image files. So you pointed me in the right direction with that comment. (Sometimes the most perfect image is also huge: today I chose more by size than content. So yay you! Smiley Happy) The situation did also achieve resolve by following Dave's suggestion to speak with Admin. Smiley Happy A two-pronged approach=success. Smiley Happy  Thanks again.

 

And thanks for the update on Ms Mississippi. You two are too cute. Smiley Happy (I still have serious dog lust and will until we're able to accommodate a pair of our own yappers.)
