down the trail~

I took the dogs out for a little hike down the trail.

Amber and Brandy don't want to cooperate and have their picture taken  ... having too much fun jumping around; enjoying the warm weather.  It's 34 degrees out today!

Amber is pointing at something... most likely a little mouse or possibly a weasel. OR... Nothing! She's good at that. lol

Here comes my brother Randy through the woods. He called me earlier to wish me a happy birthday and said he'd drive over on the Rhino ATV to give me a ride.  That's why I figured it'd be a good time to take a hike on the woods trail.  I'd walk halfway through and bum a ride back with Randy. 

I love afternoons like this.

Until next time...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.


  1. ~~~~HAPPY BIRTHDAY ~~~~~


    You look like your having fun out there.You said it was 34 degrees out there. It was 73 here.This North Carolina weather is really messed up. HA!HA! Anyway the dogs seem to be having fun too! My shepard/ lab mix(Deeva) likes helicopters. Everytime one flies by,she has to run to the mid part of the pen and looks up and barks. It is hilarious. HA! Those are some beautiful pics you got. I'm jealious. HA! HA! I'm kidding!
