Fun Monday-My town

Pamela, from The Dust Will Wait is hosting this week's Fun Monday. This is the assignment:

I want to see what you see on any given morning this week; from somewhere very near where you live. Front porch, back porch, down the street, around the corner. Just makes sure it's your neighborhood. Post a photo that will send me to the travel agent to book a weekend at your local Bed & Breakfast.Post your October View on Monday, October 8 .Write a little or write a lot.Link to this post with the participants listHave fun.

My camera was in San Antonio this week for my son-in-law's retirement so these are some older photos of life in a small town.










A Bird's Nest













The view from my back yard













Even the dogs learn to entertain themselves.














The TV weatherman was in town - any excuse for a party!








The weather is always a topic of conversation!

The storm picture is grand, and I love the sunrise or sunset view from your backyard.

Swampwitch said...

I love it when other bloggers go back and correct their typos.
Lurv ALL your pics.
Put horns on that cow and you'll have Beavo. Speaking of Beavo...ok, so I won't.
Good game.

Did the dog catch the truck? Cause that's a big truck.

Pamela said...

oh the weather!!! I do want to chase a tornado. BecauseTHAT IS ON MY TO DO LIST you have convinced me that your town is one I want to come visit. Just as long as the Bed & Breakfast has a storm cellar.

I hope my legs hold out for at least one tornado chase vacation.

Barbed wire fence picture is enchanting.

Good job -- what fun!!!

Hey I love dog people! I'm down to four now.

Love your photos and I especially admire Bug and his (her) technique for dealing with marauding tanker trucks. Can't be too careful about them.

Don't you love our change-in-a-fraction-of-a-second weather in Texas? Makes life here so much more exciting when you look outside & say, "Hmmm. Sky's green. Wonder if we'll see a tornado today." Don't cha think? Oh, and I hope your Cowboys win tonight.

Sunday school was " ok". I had a screamer! I have 2 helps, teenagers, and 4 kids, tHATS ALL! I was totally unprepared, and the lesson was to teach them they are special. All we did was go over their names, and how their parents named them special and god thinks they are special etc!

Mama Drama Jenny said...

I can almost smell that last photo.

That's tornado weather, my friend.

Dawn said...

Those are great photos. I think the dog might win that one if he plays it right. I love the view from your back yard.

Amanda said...

Wow! I love the weather picture. I just KNEW my mom would have something to say about it too. The woman is deathly afraid of horror movies, but she wants to chase tornados!!


Thanks for sharing!

ChrisB said...

That looks like some storm brewing. I love your header and the trip to your
neighborhood.

Karmyn R said...

Yikes - that is one scary looking cloud!!! The dog chasing the tanker is too funny.

willowtree said...

Great shots!! You covered just about all spectrums in one post, and that's not easy!

Junebug said...

Thanks for the comments. You might like to visit my blog again for I have posted some extra photos. If you are a Pioneer Woman reader, I have an interesting photo to see. We have plenty of those same storms that come from Texas and find there way into Oklahoma also.

Susan said...

"Hostile Herd" - sounds like a party right there! Love seeing your surroundings - small towns are The Best.

lisa's chaos said...

I love your view through the fence! Small town life is nice. That dog cracks me up. Is he trying to drag the truck back to his bed?

Peter said...

We don't have tornado's in Australia, a fact that I'm very pleased to share with you.... looks a bit scarey.

Christine said...

Love the new header.It's too funny!! Brings back memories when our german shepard was just a pup, and decided to stare down a grown size BULL, one tiny WOOF and he turned tail. Got too love their spirit.

I've never been in a tornado, but that does look like one dark storm brewing. Beautiful shot.

Happy Fun Monday!
