I Won Again!!!!

I've been married to this man almost 35 years and when it
comes to fishing or hunting he is serious!!
He's telling me here that I can't catch a fish with the camera
in my hand! lol

He's putting new line and hooks on his and says mine is fine!!!

When he gets the cigar out you know he is serious now!!!
I'm standing on the bank fishing but with camera in hand
watching the geese and taking pictures!
See the babies?

He wades out pretty far and doesn't talk except to the fish!!!
(the ones that get away! lol)

I did get hung up one time and pulled my hook and sinker off
and he had to come in and fix it!
I think I messed up his concentration!!!

Because I won!!!!
We always compete in fishing to see who catches the most and the biggest.
I will admit that we did catch the same amount of fish but mine was the biggest
and this fish was not it.  This is just the only picture he took of one of my fish!!!
What can I say???? (smile)

More Of Helen Ga.

This is just a little part of the town of Helen, Ga.

I love this little bridge!

This is a quilt store.

Loved this bed.

Isn't that the truth?

This is a Christmas store that is open all year long!

This is outside another Christmas store that I used to love!
But it is closed now!
Wonder if they would give me this Santa?

This is a bench made from a telephone pole!
I LOVE it!

Love this old house!
I think the sign says 9 acres/600,000.00!
It is right in town!

I could not help myself!!
She is so cute!!!
I asked the couple if I could take a picture
and the dad said, you would not believe how many people ask that!
He was a proud Dad!
Just a few more pictures of Helen, Ga.
If you haven't been here you should visit.
It is really a neat little place!

I Just Thought It Was Over


After 2 full days and nights of rain, rain, rain....
We finally saw the sunshine today!
When this little guy came sneaking out I thought the storm was over.
The fighting for the bird seed had started.
My 4 little chipmunks came out!
Even this squirrel figured out a way to get in to this
squirrel proof bird feeder!
They haven't bothered it before but they did today!
It is wired together so he can't get the lid off now!

So "Sweet Hunter" put up our new umbrella
 and said he wanted to have
dinner outside.
White beans, slaw, macaroni and cheese, fried potatoes and cornbread!
And it was yummy!
After dinner we filled up all the feeders and assumed the rain was over.
Then it came.....Rain, Hail, lightening, winds!
It was so windy it took our umbrella and lifted the table up!
And of course, this all happened right after "Sweet Hunter"
went to take his Mother a plate of food.
I called "Sweet Hunter" and told him about the storm.
He told me to go out and get the umbrella and table up!
Yeah, right!!!
I opened the door and the umbrella was right in front of the door and
with all the hail, lightening, rain and winds, I just closed the door
and waited until he came home.
That just shows you though it is not over until it's over!!!!
You never know with these storms!!!
He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.
Psalm 107:29

My Bird Bath

This is what I started out with.

Just a plastic bowl and lid.

And then...thanks to my Mother, I now own a real bird bath!!!
The crazy thing is that I had several over in the country but sold them
so I wouldn't have to move them!

It didn't take long before they discovered it!
Thanks Mom!!!

I just loved this picture!
Female Grosbeak and a Cardinal!

I haven't had many red birds until the last couple of days!

I think they are just beautiful!

I think this is some kind of finch.
I will tell you this. They are not scared of me at all!

Another picture of a female grosbeak!
We think they look like a baby hawk.

My Mother has about 100 of these yellow finches!
I only have a couple of them.
He is on a bag full of Niger Seed!
My BFF Vicki told me that they love it and they do!

I can't leave without showing you one of my Male Grosbeaks!
So far I have seen 7 males and 3 females all at one time!!!
Still loving this birdwatching!!!
