Tell Me A Good Story

When I first looked at the prompts for this week’s Scavenger Hunt I found them kind of … interesting.  I started looking through my recent photos and found a couple that would work.  While taking pictures a few days later, it hit me that this hunt might have romantic intentions behind it.  My interpretations of this week’s prompts are not romantic, but I like the pictures.

We have a few barn cats.  They are not allowed near the house and are for mousing only.  J usually feds the cats, but the other day I did it.  To my surprise we, we have 3 kittens and J forgot to tell me.  Last week I fed the cats and took my camera along.  These little guys spend lots of time together in the old horse barn.

Rancher’s are always willing and ready to tell me a story about the weather.  These storm clouds went around us last Tuesday evening.  The rain gauge picture is from our 2.10″ of rain on Monday the 16th.

Here are a couple of good helpers.  The Rancher doesn’t go anywhere without one or both of them.  We keep forgetting that Fritz is just a puppy.  She keeps reminding us that she is young and likes to chew on boots and shoes.  Fritz did so last Saturday when we left her unsupervised in the cool entryway on a hot afternoon.  The Rancher was NOT impressed.

The kernels on these ears of corn are duplicated.  Identical in color and shape repeated within the ear of corn and across the ears.  I used this corn to make a Fresh Corn and Pasta Salad.

As the summer daze goes by let us be wrapped in the joy of spending time with loved ones.  Hopefully we have a good story to share as we make new memories.  Experiences that help make our lives unique and full.

    Robyn I really enjoyed these photos of your ranch and bet you stay really busy with this on the prairie land. REminds me of my grandparents farm in Kansas when I was a girl. Your kittens are cute, and bet you have lots of cats for that mousing. Thank you also for stopping by my blog, and have a great day! Jeanne

  4. Oh those storm clouds are pretty awesome. Glad you had your camera to capture them. We have yet to have clouds like that here, what little rain we have had always seems to happen at night. Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Love the photos from your ranch! The kittens and pups are especially adorable!

  6. Wow, the time has flown by, I can’t believe it’s Wednesday already… I’ve been outside painting the house everyday, all day! Love your entry, thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #40!
