Very Thankful Thursday!

We are so very thankful today for good people!! With all the bad news in the world. We are always pleasantly surprised when we are reminded there are still good people in the world. Mama got an example of this earlier this month!



It all started when Mama took Arty out here to the Redwoods National Park for a photo shoot 
Now, when we go on adventures like this Mama brings all the usual clothes stuff...bandanas, props, hats, blankies. We also make sure she brings us treats, water, blankies. She also brings her big camera...and this time she brought one of her extra lenses. 
Well, when she was packing up to come back home after Arty's photo shoot, she forgot the extra lens!

Let's just say, Mama was not a happy camper when she got back home(about 45 minutes later).  She remembered exactly where she left the lens, and decided to turn right around and go back just in case the lens was still there. 


Unfortunately, the was gone..BUT someone had left a note that asked if someone "lost something" and left a number to call to describe that "something"! Needless to say, we called right away and guess what? A nice couple found the lens and kept it safe until Mama went to pick it up!! 

 It is so refreshing to see honesty and goodness still live in human kind! Mama is so very thankful to these kind people for keeping her lens safe until she got home from Texas!

Nature Friday Moods

 
 TGIF effurybody, and welcome to week 53 of Nature Friday! Here, in our corner of Blogville, it's getting a bit gray, with a bunch of clouds and foggies, so we decided to roll with it this week and show you some "Moody" sky shots along with a few "Moody" shots of me from a pumpkin patch we found at the Humboldt Botanical Garden.



Mama likes to play with her pictures sometimes to make them more "artistic" and "moody"





I told her she better not be "Arting up" my pictures too much...

You can't improve on pawfection, am I right?? BOL


 
Pretty moody reflections...



Catching a squirrel sure would put me in a happy mood!




This old, abandoned railway is moody in almost a spooky way!



Hope your weekend is full of happy moods!



 Show us your nature! It can be flowers, your current weather, a scene out of your window, or maybe a picture from a vacation, walk or other journey! Any kind of nature picture will do! If you don't see a link below, click HERE
