Thanksgiving pets

Tulip is our sweet cat she is the oldest pet in our house. Tulip was a Christmas gift for Paige from my mom around 13 years ago. Her fur is the softest fur I have ever felt on a cat.

Crusty is another story she is not sweet, her favorite thing to do is hiss and open doors and try to escape. We now have to lock our door to our garage because she lets herself out along with the air conditioning.

Pearl, wonderful, sweet Pearl is the nicest dog you will ever meet. Only wants love, food, naps, her nails painted and to sit in the sun.

We are thankful for our pets who welcome us home everyday, greet us in the morning, cuddle up to us when we sit still for a moment and accept us just as we are.

I live in a Swamp...

There are times when I think to myself I live in a swamp. Florida to me is little more than a Swamp.

We went to Tallahassee this past weekend to look at FSU for Paige, it is one of the colleges on her short list so we made our second trip over there to see the area and on the way back we thought we would see how far the beach was and we ended up at a national park, St. Marks Florida is 25 miles below Tallahassee. It was not the beach I had thought we would see it was more like a swamp, okay it was a swamp with gators and all. Not the park I would be taking a stroll through. Nope I stayed in the truck except for a quick adventure to the lighthouse to snap a few shots and then back into the truck.

I don't like the thought of snakes and creepy things lurking around in the tall grasses, not good.

We also had to go to a football game, I got to try out my replacement lens that I bought last week that is the replacement for the lens Stacy broke. (I just had to let you know I was not being greedy thinking I had to have a new lens for no reason, Sorry to toss you under the bus Stacy)

Sheri Berry in Macy's

I went down to our big Macy's to take some photos of the trees with the ornaments designed by Sheri, her Macy's is not carrying the line so she is not able to see how they displayed them. Of all the Macy's to not have them, poor Sheri.

I had an interesting time taking photos of her ornaments, I asked the girl at the counter if I could snap a few photos and she said that was fine. So I was snapping away then out of nowhere, the store security swarmed and informed me that photography was not allowed in Macy's so I had to stop. I guess my giant flash and zoom lens was a little much. But I look so unassuming.

Cute, cute, cute! You can see the whole lot of I think 64 designs at Sheri's blog Sheri Berry Studio. Hope your Macy's has them they are so fun to see. I really want to stand by them and say look how cute these are, my friend designed them she is so talented....
