1. It's been a good week. I've actually had fun just relaxing and blogging this week.
Here Captain Cuddles has found his special place to relax. Mine has been taking photos, editing, blogging and just enjoying life this week.
2. Last Friday we had a Thunderstorm (with hail). Coleen wanted to go outside and stand out in the rain and hail. Grandpa told her to hold a pan over her head. Doesn't she look like she's having fun. Children find joy even in the midst of storms. I find joy in watching her.
3. Wednesday our local Fair kicked off with the concert. It featured the Marshall Tucker Band as the opening act and then the featured act was,
Charlie Daniels! I'm not a huge fan of country music but this was more country/rock so I enjoyed myself. I took tons of pictures (some turned out, some did not) but this is one of my favorites. You really can't see the band that well but I liked it because of the people in the crowd with their phones out snapping away.
4. The 4 O'Clocks finally bloomed. My mom grew these from seeds this year and then planted them all in a little clump next to her storage shed. We've been waiting all summer long for them to bloom.
5. Crows make me smile. Some people find them to be a nuisance but I enjoy their antics and they enjoy the peanuts I leave out for them every morning. Earlier this summer there was some guy that pulled up in a truck and was actually shooting a pellet gun at them aiming right towards out house. I was so shocked that I didn't get his license plate number but we realized he lives just down the street from us so if it ever happens again you can bet you bottom dollar (does anyone use that expression any more?) that I'll turn him in.
I'm excited to finally be back participating in Theresa's (The Run-a-Round Ranch Report) GOOD FENCES meme.
On Sunday (17) we decided to take a little drive about 45 out of town to visit a little spot we'd heard about but had never seen before. This is what we found.

My mom and Coleen enjoying learning about this part of history.
These two horses set up on a hill outside of the main sculpture area.
Mike reading one of the 3 informational signs/plaques that tell about the sight.
A closer view of the sign he was reading with the figures in the background.
A close-up of some of the figures. I just missed getting William Clark in this shot so in the next photo I've cropped another photo to include his figure.
William Clark is the figure directly behind the two horses in the front center of the photo and Lewis Meriwether is the figure in the middle next to the dog in the front of the photo.
Here is another close-up in which I included Meriwether. The woman behind next to the fire area is Sacagawea or as I learned her name, Sacajawea, the Indian woman who served as an Interpreter for the expedition.
This last shot was taken by my hubby. Since I'm so rarely in front of the camera I asked him to take my picture so I could prove that I was there as well.
As you can see a Fence did border the area so it fits today's Meme even though it's more about the site then the fence. - Have a great day.
