This and That

 
I voted earlier this morning in a tiny building on the side of a country road.  Greeted by name and treated like a long lost friend.  Life out here isn't perfect, but it is pretty good.  


Spotty apples resting on the front porch.  A few remain, just here and there.  




Sheep grazing on a friend's farm.  They are so sweet to look at, but I don't know if I would be up to the daily care requirements.  



A red barn, captured on the fly somewhere in our county.  



And, just a random quote to round out the whole post....


"I'm sorry, if you were right, I'd agree with you." 

Robin Williams

  1. There really is nothing like living in the country. We did for 20 years and at times I still miss the peace and quiet.

  2. I love your photo of the sheep. So serene, but I agree that I wouldn't be up to the daily care of them. I voted this morning, too. My polling place was very busy. xo Laura

  5. Sheep aren't that hard, they graze all day.. but you have to have their hooves trimmed when they need it and have their wool sheared once a year. Fresh water and hay when there isn't any in the field. They are very sweet animals. My husband's cousin gave us a newborn black sheep because the mother wouldn't care for it, and we had milk goats. We raised her on a bottle and we had her all her life. We called her "Lamb", then "Sheep".

  6. I have eaten apples like that, it is worth cutting around the bad spots. They look like they might be a little tart.

  7. These are all beautiful pictures. It's funny how even an apple that's going bad can have some beauty.
    I voted in our quiet town too and saw several people I know. I enjoy small town life!

  8. I remember those days voting at the local church and standing in the long line with everyone from town. Now it is all by mail....somehow something is lost...Lovely photos today and love the quote - I need to remember that one. xo Karen

  9. I love that you received a friendly welcome at your polling precinct. My greeting was almost the opposite. I can't say for sure that the poll worker who took my ID even responded when I enthusiastically said, 'Hi! Looks like a good turnout!' ((sigh)) **Fingers crossed for a smooth election in Florida** Love the sheep shot -- so unexpected.

  10. Hi Michelle, Those are some great photos. Congrats on voting and, yes, it sounds good there in the small town. Out here in Washington State we are doing our voting by mail. Yes, there are a few exceptions, but probably 90% or more is done by mail. It makes it easy but I do miss the interaction at the polls. You are an inspiration ... teaching, taking care of the family, and blogging ... my goodness. Thank you for your kind comments on my blog. John

  13. I always love your beautiful photos and your so appropriate quotes! Joe and I do early voting. The last time I DID go to the polling place, I knew several people waiting in line. We just like the convenience of doing it when it is more convenient for us.

  14. Hello, Michelle...I wondered if you had a lot of trick or treaters since you are in a small town.
    I am listening to your playlist...how do I get one for my blog.? I so love the music...ESPECIALLY the 50's music...and Whiskey River "ain't" bad. :)

  16. Those apples look like they are headed for the compost pile. My daughter Susie has three sheep and my impression is that you just put them out in the field and let them take care of themselves.

  18. At first I took your apples for some strange pumpkins...

  19. I thought your apples were pumpkins they look huge. We've been enjoying sheep in fields with their gorgeous sheep dogs soon they'll be gone, moved on to their Winter spots...

  20. Now, if you had horses these apples would find a home. Why no horses?

  21. The apples are so beautiful on your porch! I like their spotty appearance. Barns are always wonderful - and so are sheep.
