Totally Random

Gentle Readers.....the following post has no cohesive thought nor flow. Due to the snow and cold weather I do think my brain has shriveled and is now incapable of true reflection. So, I decided to utilize my visual skills and sort through some older photos instead.
Here we have my own dear Toots really acting the part of a true ham.
A random barn shot....I do love them. And, there is the slightest sliver of a moon right above the roof line. A nice touch by Mother Nature.
A marshmallow fresh out of the fire. True summertime heaven on a stick.

A bad reputation as a weed, but beautiful nonetheless.


Trap shooting practice should be starting soon and actually I cannot wait for The Deerslayer to get back at it.

The weather forecast is calling for more snow. Seriously, I am going to turn into a flake before long.

  10. Beautiful shots. The toasted marshmallow makes me yearn for summer on the prairie when we go camping. But we are a long way from that!

  24. Farmchick, you have a real gift for photographing the kids. When they grow up and look through the photograph albums from their childhood, these will be favorites. (So . . . get to work on those albums!)

  25. Love the photos of time gone by.

    I can't wait for outdoor fires at the cabin and toasting marshmallows again!

  26. Love all the photos. Trap shooting....it has already began here in northern CA. My niece and nephew's b-day (ages 8 &11)party is coming up and it's a trap/target shoot party.....bring your own shells! Have a great weekend:)

  27. I like how you connected some unconnected pictures. You gave me an idea...

  28. I like to look back through old photos. We have over 100,000 pictures on hard drives. Unfortunately they are not all labeled so I have to look in a folder with a date going back many years to see what I was taking back then.

    Just looked out. More snow is falling. I think this is an old-fashioned winter.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ah... summer. Lots of times, I think winter was made just to lets us reflect on times like these. Ha!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Mr. Lincoln - I think that is a great way to describe the winter we are having!

  31. Jack - Thank you and my kids are one of my favorite subjects.

  32. Look at it this way, at least we don't have gorse along with the thistles! Scotland has a real cachet for hardy, spiny weeds!

    Was the picture of Toots taken at Penn's? It pings my memory a little; we used to go out there about twice a year to buy country ham to ship to Dad's family out in Arizona. Way back when, you had to ford a little stream on the Mannsville road to get to it, and you had to call ahead (long distance) to find out if the road was passable!

  33. The "HAM" photo really got to me!

    My guess is that the thistle in the photo is edible. Catch the green thistle when it is plump and no purple showing. I've steamed them. Ten minutes in a steamer, dipped in butter. Yum.

    Sending warm wishes across the miles and DON'T FLAKE OUT!

  37. AiredaleGirl - The picture of Toots was not taken at Penns, although your childhood memories of the place sounds like quite the adventure.

  38. I’m flaking myself. I am uninspired to take photos as everything is just plain blah. No photos makes Amy a dull girl :) LOL We need spring!

  41. Oh my gosh I hear this winter has been so hard on so many. The snowfall is quite amazing this year no doubt. I love this series and although you say it is random i see blue skies which makes me think of summer and warmer days ahead. I love to look back over old pics and am a sucker for barns too, fantastic how you captured a slice of the moon.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Love these pictures! The barn one is amazing, especially with the moon showing a little!! I don't know why, but I have always loved barn pictures.

  43. I love those crescent moons! :)

  44. We had a few days of ghlorious blue winter skies but today they again turned grey. Our 9th snowstorm is expected in the coming week. I feel your pain!
