Weekend Snippet

In Technicolor

Today we were a little less ambitious, however, we did manage to have a fun-filled weekend.
Friday, our taste buds led us to the local Thai restaurant for a yummy dinner.
Saturday, we found ourselves on a pursuit to find fall. And that whim led us
approximately 2 hours away to the Chimney Rock State Park.
I will share photos of that excursion soon.

This coming week is going to be an exciting one here at WW.
I plan to post about the new giveaway tomorrow evening so stay tuned.
I'm also looking forward to taking you all on a "field trip" or two, which should be fun.
I hope you had a terrific weekend!

  1. Hello there Wayfaring Wanderer. You left a comment over at my place a while back and I only just found it. I am so sorry. How red my face is. Sadly, for some reason my comment notification for blogger no longer works and I am not cyber savy enough to fix it. Sigh.....
    But I do so love to visit with people and am really enjoying looking around your place. You have an amazing eye for taking pictures and you live in a beautiful area. The barn, the sky, those flowers...wow! What a blessing. Looking around here is like taking a breath of fresh air.

  2. wow nice one!
    I am glad you have a great weekend. It's hailed (ice rain) for the first time this year here in UK.

  3. Really Good Photo do like it.put it on my screensaver. A Joke to start the week .--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Duck Hunting

    A lawyer went duck hunting in rural Oklahoma. He shot
    and dropped a bird, but it fell into a farmer's field on the
    other side of a fence.

    As the lawyer climbed over the fence, an elderly farmer
    drove up on his tractor and asked him what he was doing.

    The lawyer responded, "I shot a duck and it fell in this field,
    and now I'm going to retrieve it."

    The old farmer replied, "This is my property, and you are
    not coming over here."

    The indignant lawyer said, "I'm one of the best trial attorneys
    in Oklahoma and, if you don't let me get that duck, I'll sue you
    and take everything you own."

    The old farmer smiled and said, "Apparently, you don't know
    how we settle disputes in these parts of Oklahoma. We settle
    small disagreements like this with the Okie Three Kick Rule."

    The lawyer asked, "What's that?"

    The farmer replied, "Well, because the dispute occurs on my
    land, first I kick you three times and then you kick me three
    times and so on back and forth until someone gives up."

    The attorney quickly thought about the proposed contest and
    decided that he could easily take the old codger. He agreed
    to abide by the local custom.

    The old farmer slowly climbed down from the tractor and
    walked up to the attorney. His first kick planted the toe of his
    heavy steel-toed work boot into the lawyer's groin and dropped
    him to his knees. His second kick to the midriff sent the lawyer's
    last meal gushing from his mouth.

    The barrister was on all fours when the farmer's third kick to
    his rear end sent him face-first into a fresh cow pie.

    The lawyer summoned every bit of his will and managed to get
    to his feet. Wiping his face with the arm of his jacket, he said,
    "Okay, you old coot. Now it's my turn."

    The old farmer smiled and said, "Naw, I give up. You can
    have the duck."
