Skywatch Friday, Season 5, Episode 16

Phoenix was experiencing some wacky weather the other afternoon as I went out to feed Traveler.
This shot above was to the west....
This shot to the north....
And finally... rain just to the east, but not a drop at the house until much much later in the evening....

Special thanks to the Skywatch team who hosts awesome skies from all over the world each week.

Pasture day

Traveler needs the exercise, and so did I. I had to run for the camera after I turned him out. I wish I knew how to use the video on my camera, I haven't yet mastered that art.

He bucked and took off at a fast pace. He doesn't canter or lope, he 'flat' walks as Missouri Fox Trotters are born doing.

He stopped and rolled ... then cruised the pasture again ... he's really fun to watch.  There were some joggers along the street and he had to follow them along the fence line, nosy horse that he is.. then he snorted and took off again. Around and around we went for may minutes..

In this last shot, the neighbors dogs had been let out for their morning business and Traveler stopped to have a look at what they were doing...

Signs of the Season ... Halloween

My street is showing signs the seasons are changing… neighbors have begun to decorate for Halloween.. These shots are my neighbors place next door... (and I did ask permission before I decided to write this post...)

I don't know if I'll have the little ghosts, gremlin's, ghouls and goblins sneaking warily up my walkway.... but if they do come knocking ... I'll certainly have treats on hand for them ...along with the requisite pennies for UNICEF cartons .... Oh! Do children still collect for UNICEF? You can imagine how out of touch I am, if I'm asking questions...

I'm not even certain what evening (the 30th or the 31st) they will be out and about...it's been so long since I've lived in a neighborhood that has children, I can't remember....someone care to tell me so I'm not caught unprepared?

Just a reminder, too... Daylight Savings ends on Sunday, October 30, this year.


Over the next few weeks, I'm going to be experimenting with my page... making changes, redesigning, etc. I'd like to hear from those of you who visit. Your thoughts and ideas are welcome... so please leave a comment.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
