A few odds and ends

For the last week we enjoyed stopping and playing with a Springer Spaniel named Reesie (think peanut butter cup). She was smart and lovable. Her owners Don and Ruth Ann Brown were fun to be with and we enjoyed a couple of campfires and went to dinner one evening. We were sorry to see them move on.

On the subject of dogs.  I came across this sign recently.

Yesterday we hiked a nearby trail and came across

this unique spongy-looking plant.  From a distance it resembled clumps of snow.

We’ve seen this guy before.
Often in the evenings a small group of musicians gather in one of the campsites directly across from ours and do some picking.  This group is really, really good.  Tonight the instruments included bass, banjo and guitar. 

And finally and under the heading of Old Guys Rule there is this clever marriage of a golf cart and a leaf blower that camp volunteers use to blow leaves and pine needles off the roads.

Stay tuned.


  1. sounds like you had a great day.

  2. Laughed out loud at that headstone. I've seen some yard signs about picking up after your dog but that's the funniest one yet.
