Wide open English countryside

 We pent a lot of time over the weekend with company dropping in so were constantly drinking tea(yuck or coffee)

 We did complete a 1,000 piece jigsaw between cuppas!
 Monday morning was beautiful so we took another walk down to the woods
 This part overlooks a lot of the land we used to farm
 Now a good part of this land has been bought by american mormons......they are farming it but it's more about investments in land.  It's amazing how much property they have bought!

 They are not going to do much with this until they put in some drainage

 While we were walking I kept seeing the red kite flying off in the distance but on our way back up the lane he was fairly close
 The elusive red kite
 I ran all the way to the back of the field & this was the best shot I managed to get
 See how far away I was !
 After lunch we took a walk up to visit my cousin in the village


  1. I'm loving all these posts...go back so ou don't run out. THe American Mormons purchasing all that land is peculiar.

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!


We went to JoAnne & Peter's for thanksgiving this year.  They were cooking dinner & Josh & Carol were going to be there
 Molly is always game for a road trip!

 It was gray , gloomy day & kinda chilly by the river
 Sadie is such a cutie
 We couldn't get Addie to pose as cute
 Josh got there first as Carol had to work......these dogs just love him

 I forgot to take pics of the table but everything was so good & JoAnne made apple pie!
 We spent the night & left for home after breakfast on Friday.  Our GPS sent us home a different way & we crossed the Tappan Zee bridge.  They are building a new one so lots of work going on

 One of those big cranes toppled over a few weeks ago.....they are so tall
 Look at the size of that one!
 As you know I love bridges
