A Double Shot

Today it's a double barn shot as I link up with The Barn Collective.  

Here in Central Kentucky, tobacco is being harvested.  

A controversial crop, I know, but it is still a way of life for a few here in my community.  These pictures showcase the views I pass each day on my way to work.  

Secret Agent Farmer Man even grew his own crop of tobacco in high school to finance his first car.  It is a dying way of life, for sure.  

Soon this tobacco will hang in a barn to dry and then be sold at auction.  Click here to see how this process develops.

Friday Randoms

I have a twenty minute drive to, "town", each morning for work.  This affords me many views, one of which this week was my accountant, in his pajamas, waiting with his son for the bus.  Small town life is all real.....all the time.  

Been looking for a White Moose?  Well....lucky you.  

A few sports photos for your enjoyment can be found here.  

A newborn with rollers in her hair, why of course.  

I happened upon this by accident, but I believe you will enjoy it.  

Linking up with Tanya.  
Have a great one.

Thankful Thursday

Thankful this Thursday for country roads, sunsets, and a good drive home.  It gets inconvenient living out in the country, but with views like this on the drive home, I can put up with it.  I just have to make sure we don't run out of milk :)  

What are you thankful for this Thursday?  Small things are just as important as the big things.  Link up and let me know!

Appalachian Word of the Day

gaum: n. mess (gom) ; also used as a transitive verb: to "gaum up" 

A back alley here in Smalltownland.  

Here I am on Tuesday, still reflecting on Sunday.  The guys were planning their trip, which is to Colorado to hunt Elk, and had all of their, "things", spread out in the house.  The husband said it would be put back in the closet, but I have yet to see that happen.  

Yet, to see that happen, I say. 

This is on top of all the regular, "things", that get placed around the house.  


Life is good, but it comes with a lot of gaum.

News on Sunday

The men of the house are planning and scheming.  They have a hunting trip planned for this fall, out west.  Maps are being perused, routes are being planned, and equipment is being purchased.  

They will be driving out west, hiking into their assigned area, and setting up camp.  This makes me a little bit nervous, but they are excited about their upcoming adventure.  Not to be outdone, the ladies of the house, (me and the girl), will be taking our own adventurous trip next spring.  More details will be upcoming.  

We have a plethora of pears.  We use some ourselves, some go to the deer feed plot, and then we have an opossum visiting each night to eat the fallen pears.  

I came home from the grocery with a new box of dog biscuits.  After I passed them out, I found my Jack Russell behind our recliner with her biscuit.  Not where she usually sleeps, so I am guessing she was hiding....and protecting her treat.   

This is on the menu for tonight and making the house smell great.  This has been the music for the weekend, and even the husband enjoyed it.  

Make today a good one, won't you?

Authentic petroglyphs from a hike in New Mexico.  

Interested in how to become a Geisha?  Here are a few photos of being an apprentice.  

I know a few Moms who feel just like her.  

Leavin' you with a bit of the Irish today.  

Linking up with Tanya today.

Thankful Thursday

Thankful this Thursday for things that happened this summer.    My son took a job that had him going to work in the late afternoon.  A change, for sure, but it meant he and I were home during the same time during the day.  This meant conversation on all levels and topics.  We watched a few TV shows together and cleared up all kinds of misunderstandings from life, family, and whatever.  

Quite possibly one of the most important things that happened this summer.  

What are you thankful for this Thursday?  Let me know!  Big or small, it doesn't matter.  Being thankful is the only important thing.
