Three days of incredible skies.  I wonder if there’s some significance in that. You know, good things come in threes or something…anyway…you can’t believe the explosion of color in these photos. Enjoy!

Monday, January 12 –

A sad day at the Shannon’s. Atlanta, Jordan and Marian had to go home. It had been a wonderful visit, and longer than we had hoped for, but we didn’t want it to end.

Harvest Evening

Saturday, January 10 –

The boys have been helping a friend of ours strip his cotton. They were working hard today trying to get finished up. I offered to pick up Courtney since Cim was busy. I brought her to where they were working so she could see the process. On the way back to the ranch, I kept stopping to take pictures of the sky and countryside. It was very cold and windy, but I just couldn’t pass up so much beauty. I only had my camera phone, but it still captured some great shots.

Harvest Moon

Sunday, January 4 –

Okay, so it’s not exactly traditional harvest time, but the cotton harvest is still going on, so I can call it a harvest moon if I want to. It has all the characteristics; big, yellow, round, full…

Helping Granddad return a few phone calls

These pictures speak for themselves. These two became pretty tight during the Christmas visit.

Granddad is distracted, now’s my chance to escape.
