White Lines



My tiny country road now has white lines.......



I feel the urge to spray paint right over the top of them. 

 I won't because it would be wrong, and really it would take way too much spray paint. 


Civilization is creeping into my tiny hamlet.

Friday Randoms



Hmmmmm....maybe your average hole in a tree or maybe a Keebler Elf lives there.  I'll let you decide. 

A seriously awesome wedding photo right here


Why, yes I do think I need a sheep to hold my paper clips.  


I am going to blame my Border Collie's love of cereal on Secret Agent Farmer Man.  He doles out a bit of cereal to each dog whenever he pours himself a bowl.   


I shall leave you with Mick Jagger and The Cheiftans to carry you through the weekend.

Thoughtful Thursday



Thankful today for this sweet companion.  Although, I do think she was the one who opened the cabinet door and took out a box of cereal that I found on the floor......I still love her anyway.

Golden Days


Like so many people, Autumn is my favorite season.  




I cannot say which is my most favorite; pumpkins, the leaves already falling from our trees, or the Goldenrod in bloom all around us.  



Today I will say the Goldenrod.
 It provides me with so many wonderful scenes right outside my front door.
But, tomorrow I might say pumpkins.  



"The Goldenrod is yellow, 
The corn is turning brown,
The apple in the orchards,
With fruit are bending down."

Cow Days

This weekend was Smalltownland's annual pause to celebrate all things cow and community related.  


Our Cow Days Festival brings in different types of craft vendors, 



as well as artistic displays of all kinds.  



Our football team played in the, "Cow Bowl", on Friday night with a great victory.  



Secret Agent Farmer Man and our trusty Border Collie, Rainy, sold raffle tickets for this classic flat bottomed river boat.  Built by SAFM himself, as well as some of the trap shooters.  




The most classic attraction of our small town festival is Annie the cow.  



For fifty cents you can milk her and get a cup of kool aid.

Friday Randoms



Sometimes we even get a little excitement at the end of our small country road.  This blimp floated overhead last Sunday afternoon.  

Here are some photographs that are most definitely worth a look.  

Our neighbors, down the road, have a donkey.  Thus far I haven't seen him, only heard him.....

I heard this lady on the radio several times this week.  Funny how you won't hear a song forever and then it just reappears.....

I was crushed to learn that Forrest Gump's house isn't real!  Some days moving to Greenbow, Alabama, and living in that scenic house sounds pretty good!

Thankful Thursday


Thankful this Thursday for a small break in a busy schedule to take a walk on the farmette.  This is a view from the top of the hill, looking towards our neighbor's property.
