Day 266 The Shop Junk Pile Pals

Friday, August 31st, 2012

Saturday, September 22- Made a little trip to our ranch up in the foothills of the ¬†Highwoods yesterday with friend, Kimmie. We found some fun things to take photos of and then drove on up to our summer pasture in the mountains. It is so dry up there and scary to even think of what would happen if lightning struck in that dry grass. The new wind farm is going in just east of our land and it is quite interesting. I am all for clean energy, but sure miss the beautiful mountains that used to be what one viewed. Guess I will have to enjoy capturing wind chargers that can be viewed up close. On our way home, we made a stop at the huge junk pile that we have at the shop. A photographer’s heaven for sure, complete with resident sheep. ¬†Here is a shot of a couple of “retired” vehicles from our private haven.

 

Day 265 Pie In The Shade

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

Friday, September 21 – Here is friend, Kimmie, enjoying some really good pie in Glacier. Seems that everywhere we went there was pie of all kinds. The hardest part was picking just one. I think this was raspberry with a bit of ice cream. We chose to sit on the deck to enjoy the beautiful weather and scenery, but the lighting was not the best for photos, but you get the idea. This was one terrific dessert.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Day 264 Happy Birthday, Walter

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

Thursday, September 20- Yesterday was Walter’s birthday. Thought this was appropriate for him. These were taken in Canada a few days ago on his fishing trip with the ‘boys’. Looks like he had a good time. Not sure who took the photos, but it was with his Canon point and shoot.

Da 262 Another Mystery Plant

Monday, September 17 – Cool wooden wheels, don’t you think? I remember riding with my dad on a wagon like this feeding cattle. And the wagon was pulled by horses, of course.

Day 259 Lots Of Triangles

Saturday, August 25th, 2012

Saturday, September 15 – It’s a lazy afternoon here. I just finished paying bills for the farm and have a little break before feeding the last steer. He goes to slaughter on Monday and I get a few months break before starting in feeding a new group of just weaned youngsters. We have people already wanting to sign up for beef next year, so I guess this year’s program was another success, as they were thrilled with what they got this year. Here is a shot from our trek out north of town to enjoy some old abandoned farm equipment. There is nothing like a farm junk pile!!
