Critters N life...

I love this shot...down country highways and an American flag flying with pride. This flag was huge and is flying at an American car dealership...FORD!
I heart my truck!!!

This is an American field mouse...awwwww...
I walked to my back porch the other day to load up the recycling and movement in a box caught my eye...3 baby mice...these guys are so small, only about an inch and a half long...
innocence in nature.

Now what did I do with the poor lil' creatures...
of course I set them free out in the tall grasses of my homestead.
Sure, they may come back to be fodder for Scratchy's cat(dog) and mouse games, but such is life in my world.

American farmsteads...gotta love 'um, flag flying near the fields of dreams...

Check out the pillars on this grand ol' country dame...concrete...and his and her porch swings, how cool is that...but you know, back in the day, friends and family would come a visitin' to watch the grass grow, it was cheap entertainment...

A perfect landscape in my eye...

One of my deceased husbands favorite hunting spots...Klum Lake...great bird hunting and watching...I can almost see him off in the distance in the canoe we had so many trips(and spills) in...haven't had roast duck in years...sigh...

Two time travelers, buds for life...and a short one it is...better take another drive Scratchy...
life is fleeting...

My favorite is the farm house with the Christmas lights still up - I take mine down for 11 months, but enjoy seeing other people's all year.

I love to take photos on the rural roads around Iowa. I missed seeing your blog while my Internet was down.
