A Little Autumn Glory and Geese

Down the road from where I live, is a lake. It makes for a nice view when out for a walk. This photo was taken this afternoon. We had three days of rain, cold, damp, and dreary weather so it was nice to get out today and enjoy the warmer weather and sunshine.

We really did need the rain, though, as we hardly had any rain all summer.

This is Mandy Jean, age 14, my personal trainer who likes taking me for a walk ! She also likes to run after rabbits since she is part beagle. :o) She is also part cocker spaniel. Give me a mixed breed dog anyday, before a pure bred one. Very intelligent little gal, so she is.

The bridge (or causeway) where Mandy is standing was built in 1936 by the W.P.A. The Works Progress Administration. The date and initials are carved in the cement.

Back to the sewing room...



  1. Sorry but I have to disagree. :-)
    It's the spaniel that has the intellegence. :-)
    Well, that is what Amie Soto Blossom would say.
    I think your just one beautiful girl Mandy Jean. :-) xxx

  2. Hi Midge and Amie Soto Blossom,

    Well, I have to admit Amie is a very pretty little gal, too ~ and very intelligent.

    Thanks for stopping by ~


  3. A peaceful Autumn setting. The geese appear to be enjoying the afternoon as well as Mandy. I am patiently waiting for our leaves to turn here in Southern Missouri, will be a while yet. We are headed to the Cabin in Colorado on the 21st of this month, where the leaves will be at their peak, can't wait. Prim Blessings Connie
