Have I Told You About My New Secretary?





Just minutes away from our home... 

The perfect Walk...


Gracie!  Get a grip!!





On Sunday's walk I noticed that there aren't as many vibrant colors as there usually are around this time of year.

Okay, I'll admit.  I'm a little envious of the other blogs I'm seeing with all the reds, yellows and oranges showing beautiful and  bright.


But our walk was nice.  Hubby felt pretty good. 
 Gracie was happy.  



I was way over-dressed though.  Hubby and I had a bet.  I said the temp would be 80 for a high, he said 76 I believe.

It was 79.


I'm paranoid when I hear a train whistle.
  You know why.
  
Another false alarm.


Over the bridge


It's usually like a Thomas Kincaid 
painting here in the fall.

 Not that this isn't pretty... it's just not 
what is usually is.


A Picture and Some History along the way...
Back in the day...  There's the bridge we just went over...


It was a beautiful day!



Oh...  have I told you about my new Secretary...??

  3. Well, that is the cutest little secretary I've ever seen! And I imagine you can save a great deal of money by paying her with cookies and milk! I LOVE the picture of the three of you on your walk, did you bring a tripod or nab a passerby? What a really neat picturesque bridge!

  5. Thank you! Ginny, we actually came across a back hoe or some-such kind of machinery and found a level place on it to place the camera. Gracie was getting antsy... she wanted to get on with the walk. And you're right, cookies and milk will suffice in Rissie's secretarial duties. Kids are so easy. LOL.

  8. Your walk looks like so much fun! But I would be scared to cross the train bridge too! But i'm sure Gracie would let you know if you needed to run - fast!

  10. Our views aren't their usual prettiness, I think from the drought.

    Great little secretary, you have there!

    Your new secretary sure is a cutie!

A Note From Gracie

Hey All, Mom and dad are getting the pool ready and you know what that means.  Splashing kids and wet dogs.  Not a fan of either one.  Bu...
