Monday

Isn't he beautiful?


CHRISTMAS IS COMING!

Another barn - lol - this one has a silo and everything.  See the blurring brown?  That is what a tree looks like on a photograph at about 80 mph.  This is also stretched to the max - lol!


Okay and here is one more.  If you want to see barns go to Kentucky - just go slow if you want good pictures.



THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:

Still saying a prayer - as we all are - for the families in Connecticut.

Happy Monday.

You do such a nice job with pictures taken from a moving car! I tried to take a picture of Mt. St. Helens from a moving car when we were in Oregon a couple of years ago ... needless to say that picture was deleted from my camera!

Love the photo of the dog, and I'm not even a fan of dogs!

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

They do say gas prices are still going down here, so hoping Santa doesn't have to feed his reindeer too many beans this year. Hope your Monday is off to a great start. I've changed the beds getting ready for weekend company, now on to the baking!

You always make me smile, my friend....have a fun day!

Now you trying to electrocute that dog with christmas lights.
I had a laugh as you always have something up your sleeves to show and tell.

I like the bean cartoon. Ho,ho
Wise thinking Santa.

Yes today they have the two young boys to bury. Oh my .

The worse has still to come for the rest of children to be buried.
For sure prayers never end for those families.

Will be a very bleak Christmas.

I mean how can we ourselves enjoy the fullness of Christmas knowing that the loss of children are part of us.

Being Mothers, Grandmothers.

This Christmas will sure be different to my hubby and I.

Wouldn't you just LOVE to know what your sweet dog is thinking as he is wrapped in colored lights...flash going off in his face.
He's beautiful!

Good MONDAY, Sandie!

I loved that quote from John Wooden, and it's so true.

Loved your photos - even at 80 mph.

GOD BLESS!

(P.S. Today I posted about Marty's latest escapade. Disco might get a kick out of it!)

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Your doggie is looking festive! I must say if I'm traveling at 80 mph then I'm the one usually doing the driving. :)
Have a nice day! Are you ready for Christmas?

I love the dog in lights pic. That is fantastic.

What an awesome Thought of the Day!

Annie said...

Santa in a gas mask had me laughing out loud.

Ann said...

Love the picture of the dog tangled in the Christmas lights.
I laughed at Santa's plan for alternative fuel

Dee said...

I admire your quick snapping of photo's...you have a talent to spot them at 80 miles and hour ...position the camera and snap. It is a talent. :) If human gas was as easy as eating beans my husband could fill up my car twice a day LOL...the picture of your dog is one you can frame and put out each year...it is so cute....the difference with cats and dogs...my cats would never let me even get close to them with the lights.

Debbie said...

I love your speedy pictures turn out. Mine would look like one big crazy blur.

I love barns, and if there is a silo attached, all the better.

Your reindeer gas made me grin. Thanks. I needed to grin.

Renegades said...

The dog with lights is so cute!

Dolores said...

I love your cute post... and ..... I love you!!!

Ms. A said...

I'm still praying.

It will be hard for people to find peace this holiday season.

You've got a great camera...getting pictures that good while going 80 miles an hour??!! :)

Merlesworld said...

He is a beautiful dog, how did they get him to stand still long enough to load him up with lights.

Susan said...

Hello Sandie...
Nice barn shots.

Cute lighted up doggie, too.

Yes, Sandie, we must all keep praying for the families of the little ones. It is beyond sad. Susan

Mary said...

happy hip hopping deer, dear. I love your Christmas posts, complete with lighted pup.

Retired English Teacher said...

I can't pass a barn without thinking of you. Should I photograph them for you? Somehow, I think I should.

Happy Monday, Tuesday, and the rest of the week.''

Blondee said...

Great Monday post, Sandie!!

What a cute dog!

SweetMarie said...

I just love that photo of the lab! He is so handsome!

Walking on Sunshine said...

Love the blurry tree! You're too funny! Hope you had a nice Monday!

Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Ok, I'm thinking you might need to drop the speed down to about 65 to get a blur-less snap of the barns. HA HA HA

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Sandie -

Always get a chuckle from your posts. Have a great day!

Blessings,
Susan :)

HOOTIN ANNI said...

...of course, the alternative fuel just cracked me up. Hope Mrs. Claus has a goodly supply of beano when they return.

SquirrelQueen said...

For 80 mph, those are pretty good barn shots. That is a great quote.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Love the dog, I want to try that with Skye. Love the joke. Hope your having a nice day. I don't think I'll ever get caught up. Always love your drive by barns.
