Roses, Roadkill Toys and the low down ~

Sorry I haven't been updating the family Blog like I normally do. A lot of things have been going on.
Staying very busy keeping up with this place, getting all the chores done and things packed. Have been spending a lot of time at the Dentist.
DS gets to have all of his wisdom teeth out next Friday. Things are a lot easier now a days and he doesn't even have to be awake to get the teeth removed. Nice.

DH is enjoying his new job and keeps him really busy. :O)

Some of the beautiful Roses from my Garden.
The weather has been nice this summer, cooler, some clouds, some sun and no where near as hot as last summer Thank goodness.

Kind'a of hard to see in this photo, but the Element in its natural state... dirty...
Impressive on how dirty it can be and I can still see the blue paint. LOL

Roadkill Toys.... the Cat's love them! Can see the little brown one has been licked to death. LOL

Roadkill toy on a string, in action. Its funny because Mia will talk with the Roadkill in her mouth.. most likely telling us how much she likes them, all the while leading DS around with the string. Makes me wonder who's playing with who? ;O)

DS took this photo of the Grosbeaks and a Hummer earlier this summer. They tolerated each other,,,barely but it was sure fun to watch the different birds interact.

We still have the farm for sale, no luck so far selling it. People are all for wanting things for free but price a place at a fair price...We just can't compete with all the Short Sales and Foreclosure's on the market. We need to be able to pay off the loan, pay the Real Estate agent and so on.
Also put a lot of work into this place and see no reason to destroy our good credit, just so someone can take advantage of us. We have to be able to pay our bills, just like everyone else.
So we sit and wait for the right buyer, that will appreciate this beautiful farm and not try to cheat us. Pretty sad the way people are now a days. Sigh ~~
Just a little frustrated as you can tell.

Have started another painting, well sort of. A Navy Phantom but realized after I penciled most of it in... I did not have a photo that would help me draw in the far side of the wings and missiles. So for now, I guess I need to work on something else. Do not know the fighter well enough to fudge it.
