I'm not sure what OHSA would say about this. But at least the job got done. For some reason the barn door hangings keep coming loose. I'm sure glad I have someone around to fix them!

P.S. Firefly...not my horse....but a picture of something loved!

Hay you



I am the proudest little picture taker EVER!

My photo titled 'The Old Bank Barn' won 2nd place in a photography contest. I have to thank everyone who comments on this blog for your lovely remarks about that particular it gave me the courage to enter it. You can view the picture with it's shiny gold star at Learn to Take Photos, which is a online photography school where I've purchased a couple of tutorials (one of which is helping me get over my 'photoshop disability') and taken two online classes. The school is run by two fantastic photographers, Laura Cotterman and Christina Handley. Check the school out and be sure to click on the Photography Tips tab. There is a bunch of easy to understand information about photography.

Anyway....back to me...... Thank you blog readers.... your critiques and comments are so helpful. And I so enjoy our interaction here and at your blogs.

A Happy Jack

A very happy JRT enjoying our Indian Summer here in Western PA! Not the sharpest of pictures....but I love her happy go lucky face. Not to mention those short stout legs of hers.

Saving baler twine for a rainy day? Seems a bit crazy as we generate a never ending supply of used twine around here.

Bye Bye Black Fly

The pesky black flies are all but gone now. A couple of hard frosts saw to that. The above picture is of a horse hair fly whisk to use while riding, to help with fly control, put away till next year....I'm happy to report.

Another Sunday With Obie


Obie sends a special 'Thanks' to Sisterella for being such a good sport today and helping him to behave long enough for me to get a couple of good head shoots of him!
