I really did not want to vote....but I did. There is a very large....king....super-size soap box I could get on...but I wont.

I have done my "DUTY" as many call it. (I do not feel it is a duty....another soap box).

Did you vote today? Why or why not....no judgement here....just wondering.

I am holding the "I'm a Georgia Voter" sticker that they give out at the polls...just in case yall thought I had lost it and became a camera hog...LOL!

Moon lit rides through the Haunted Pecan Orchard.......

Sightings of a WITCH flying near a Full Moon!!

Pumpkins and cauldrons........

And kids.....lots of kids.....preferably in the form of trick-or-treaters......

Last night our little town had trick-or-treating and a church Fall Festival. We never get trick-or-treaters at my house (to far in the country) so I went to help my Mom at her house. It was fun sitting out on the porch, talking with neighbors and seeing all the kids. So cute!!!!

So how did your Halloween go?

It has been very hot here....I don't like it at all! BUT....for whatever reason, it has been very beautiful here at our place. I took these pictures on October the 17th and I think this is one of the prettiest years ever.

The leaves have started changing here this week on our farm. Everything looks very different from when I took these pictures. Fall in South Georgia is hard to find unless you are a trained eye to these parts.

What does Fall look like in your neck of the woods?

Can I just say.....everything has been beautiful around here! Harvest seems to be just a few weeks early here. Cotton, peanuts, and pecans....early by my memory. The grapes and sweet potatoes were the only thing that seemed to be right on time. We harvested one varitey of pecans this weekend...NEVER have we done this in October!!

Hope all is well in your neck of the woods!

See ya next year!

This Summer while fishing around Cumberland Island, Danny & I decided to walk up to the ruins of the Old Dungeness Mansion. I have been here several times but it was Danny's first.

The place is still beautiful. But oh I wonder what this home was like back in it's day? After visiting there this Summer, I read a book called Strong Women, Wild Horses by Charles Seabrook. Current residents of the island are not fond of the book but I found it very interesting. It really took me back in time.

Blogger has been a pain, not allowing me to download photos. But finally...I can show you some Summer pictures.

We spent a week down at the coast fishing, mostly around Cumberland Island. When the tide was bad we would take little walking trips on the island.

This is George Carnegie's home as seen from the bank of the water.

After docking, this is the path you walk to get to the home. Those are some of Cumberland's famous wild horses.

You get a better glimpse of the home as you are walking up to it. Just beautiful!

This is the very back of the home.

This is the front of the home. No way to get a really good picture of it because it is sooo big. That is me on the front porch.

The National Park Service owns the house now. Money has been set aside to renovate it. Danny & I received an unofficial tour by a couple of really nice volunteers that are living there. They are helping with the renovations also.

I have a few pictures of the inside but to tell you the truth...they are poor quality. I was so awe struck and really did not try to capture the inside. If you want to know more about the home, it's previous owners and history, you can go to this nice fellas site. Mr. Lindsey does a fabulous job.

So where has the time gone? 2010 Is almost over? Can somebody please explain to me what the french toast is going on?

We've had some pretty fun times this past Summer. Since I didn't blog much (or at all), I think I will share a few memories over the next 2 weeks. So the count down is on.....15 days of Summer left....or is that 15 days til FALL!!! Win/Win in my book!

These are pictures from Little Package's first fishing trip to the Ohoopee river.

It is a cool, crisp 65 degrees on my porch this morning! I am so feeling Fall weather and all the wonderful things that come with it.
What is it like at your house today? Are you feeling Fall yet?

Since I am again without a camera...these poor shots were the best I could do when I tried to capture the pretty rainbow we saw last weekend.

68 Degrees!

Sent from my BlackBerry Smartphone provided by Alltel

For the past several mornings...Mother Nature has been teasing me with a hint of Fall weather.
Blogging...it seems many of my old blogging friends have cut back to bare minimum or have stopped all together.
Is it a phase?
I really like to blog..I love to look at other's blogs most of all. With my job, my granddaughter, and no working camera for months....I have just let it slide.
So what to do...what to do?

Just a little Spring cleaning going on around here.

This is the ICU nurses station where I work.

Deserted looking huh? YEP!

We have been so busy! Last night our hospital had to go on diversion....which means any patient that needed to be admitted had to be routed to another hospital! That's 70 full beds! Now you may have much bigger hospitals where you live but a full hospital aint nothin to sneeze about no matter how large!!

This is why the nurses station is empty.

Nurses are either doing patient care or sitting outside the room charting & monitoring their patient.

Now pass the coffee please!
