Country Boy

We started out at the creek/crick
this morning.
It was chilly and 
rain was expected.

We were told that when a pine tree
is cinnamon colored it is 150+ years old.
This tree was huge.

And it was growing out of this...
Oh yes, Farm Boy did.
I came down the hill to this sight.

You can take him outta the country.
but you can't take country outta him.
There are lots of warning signs
about littering.
 Notifications to not take plants, 
pick flowers and
to leave things as you found them.
No signs about public urination.
Obviously, Stuart is a stickler for the rules.
After the rain started
we took a drive and 
hit some shops.
 It has been a good trip.
We have had a wonderful time.
Tomorrow we return to Phoenix
to catch our flights on Sunday.
I will be smelling babies very soon.
That is the berries.


  1. I can't believe you POSTED this! You ARE the berries.

  2. i bet he just loved you snapping and post THAT shot of him! oh girl you are unbelievable. something about nature makes me always have to pee. no one would want a picture of me.

  3. Okay, that is hilarious. I totally feel okay now about posting the photo of my man napping.

  4. I'm just glad it was a "from the back" shot! Looks like you had a great time and I know you will be happy to be back home soon. Ann

  5. LOL!! Some people "let it all hang out" - sign or no sign!
    Where's the photo of you squatting??

  6. I've been reading your blog for awhile now (daughter's too ~ love 'em) & I swear I feel like I want to be at your house to welcome you home! I love going on vacation but more than that, I love coming home. Dropping the bags in the living room, hugging loved ones, gathering around the kitchen table for coffee & cake & stories & laughter. I want to be there with you! Enjoy the rest of your trip & may the second you walk through your front door be everything you want it to be & more.

  7. HA! Hubby loves your blog now too cause he'd fit right in! ;-P ALL your pics are great. Understanding your homesickness... It's a hard time of year to be away... My folks took me "on vacation" most years for Christmas. Hated. It. Wishing you a safe trip back and berry warm homecoming!

  8. That reminds me of a certain man I'm married to. It horrifies me to repeat the places that man has peed.

  9. Now my proud! :) Hurray for going back and smelling babies. It's good to go home, isn't it?


  10. You know why I love you so much? Cause you go on vacation and cry in roman bath tubs cause you miss home. Now THAT's a kindred spirit if I ever did know one. I miss you. I miss you and your hair products, your bling, your sparkly bags and your tender heart. Pray thee tell me that I'll see you soon.


Thanks for reading my blather. I read every comment. They make my heart happy!
