Critter crowd!

Check out all 31 critters and one lonely cactus:



Rod was commissioned for 30 pieces, but he made 32---he had Amy and me each pick out anything we wanted. Amy chose a large standing fish for her fishermen, and I picked the angel.

He was grateful for the use of our shed and wanted to show his appreciation. His mama raised him right!

They need to be cleaned up and have a protective coating applied, but someone else will do those chores. Rod has left the shed, headed home.

And MM is on equipment retrieval duties today. Safe travels, guys!

The mountains are mighty cool this morning. We are loving this fall weather, and know that the days are getting much shorter now that we have worn out September.

My thoughts are turning to making Thanksgiving plans. It will be here in about 3-4 days, it seems. Sheesh. Time is flying. But we enjoy the ride.

Life is too short to waste precious time on things and thoughts that don't promote happiness.

Choose happy...and have yourselves a ginger peachy day, y'all!

I would have picked the angel too.

We are on the back of our boat and just had a wonderful visit with the person that we bought the boat from. He's so happy that we have taken such great care of her and that we use her often. Yes, we got the perfect boat for us.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs. :)
