Six Flags at New Orleans

Wonderful  Pictures from an abandoned Six flags in New Orleans.  This is what remains after hurricane Katrina and there are no future plans for this park to reopen.  I love the chaotic and haunting beauty of these photographs.  There are 75 in total just hit the source link at the bottom to be taken to the rest!

My Dog the Rat Hunter


Today I was working in the yard planting my tomato plants and I heard a terrible howl.   I looked to see what my two girl mini pins were fighting over and it was a dead rat.  I was relieved and grossed out all in one moment.   

Let me tell you about this rat and our month long battle.  He  has terrorized me and ate through my dishwasher lines, ate holes in my dry goods after the tornado hit.  Scaring me to death a few times when I opened a cabinet.  I have tried all kinds of traps, because with my animals  poison isn't really the answer.

When the power went out for days after the April  tornado's in Alabama, I was grateful to have dry goods and bread.  In one night, my unwelcome house guest, put holes in my surviving food. This left  me with next to nothing.  Upsetting and frustrating, because  we didn't have grocery stores or restaurants. 

So back to the girls in the yard and Savannah giving off a  howling tribal call.  It was funny and cute to watch.  She pranced and walked around the rat, while sounding off  to let me know she was to get  full credit.  Her mother Rosalina sat calmly and just watched  to see my reaction to their gift.  

My cat is spoiled with treats, food, and  the occasional bird  I guess.......

Hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend!

Something Cute

These pictures remind me that I have to get my yoga on.   I honestly have been slacking lately and really haven't worked out much.  Well today I am going for a run and changing  all that!

Happy Saturday Lovelies!

Pig Gone Wild

I planted today and let senior piggy out to play.  When I went in for a drink, he ripped my flowers out, then  rolled around in the flower bed......this is him trying to give me a makeup kiss.

Happy Monday!

Relaxing Sunday

This morning  I went flea marketing and bought the biggest cabbage ever, some ferns,   mingled with my favorite sellers, and bought a stool for almost nothing.

The tag on the stool said $20 and before I could haggle.... the woman said to me, how about $4?  Wow what a deal.  I grabbed it and ran out of there. 

Right now I  am enjoying my yard, Smoking  almonds and a Turkey, Planting the last of my herbs, picking my first tomatoes of the season,  hanging bird houses,  filling bird feeders (so they stop stealing the dog and cat food)!

I hope your Sunday is just as fun and relaxing.  Thanks for coming by to see me!
