© Copyright 2008, the award-winning blog where, now that it's no longer sweltering outside, my trusty stock dog Lucky Buddy Bear and I are trying to get back into our routine of daily walks on the ridge above the farm. For years we went four miles a day nearly every single day, but for various reasons we slacked off. Way off. We're starting up again with just two miles, though it is the steepest two miles, and this photo was taken on our way back. Speed is not a factor, especially considering that this afternoon (which was beautiful) we must have stopped at least six different times to admire and take pictures of wild mushrooms. Unfortunately they weren't chanterelles. Who knew there were mushrooms that are blue?


  1. I love fall. And Bear. Therefore, I love this post.

  2. Husband Norm said the view is "cool" ... and "Man! Look at those hills!"

    He also said that fall starts at 10:00 this morning (our time - 9:00 your time). So, happy fall! It's nice to know the excessive heat is gone for the year! I could live with fall and spring all year! So why am I living in Minnesota? Duh!

  3. Ok Ok I get it - time to quit the summer time excuses for not getting out there and exercising! It is definitely not too hot - in fact exquisite is the word for our early mornings. Always love to see the Buddy Bear in your photos - glad you are back in the long walk routine (sometimes the source of more heart rocks or just rockin' pictures of your world). Happy and Blessed Autumnal Season y'all - pumpkin pie isn't far off!! (oops - now you know why I need to be out there moving more!)

  4. Happy Fall! I love Fall it is the very best time of year!

  5. Ah, an autumn walk with the dog - really, the best kind of walk ever. I do believe Bear thinks so, too.

  6. love the photo that shows a view of the landscape...what is that bluish thingie, by the barn???

  7. Your pictures always make me want to pack up and leave California like you did. Why didn't anyone tell me Missouri was so gorgeous? I can't wait to see what your farm looks like when the leaves change. I love fall.

  8. Blue mushrooms? Please show...I am in my blue period right now (as you know!) XX


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions.
