"take to the highway won't you lend me your name"

in my previous post i mentioned that we have returned to routine around here.

the demands of July, August and the first week of September made blogging

a little more difficult.  my trips to blogland were like being on a whirlwind tour.

time to visit, but often, little time to comment.

"your way and my way seem to be one and the same"

on Sunday, the deck was completed at precisely three o'clock.





jump into the shower


drive out...

"mamma don't understand it"
"she wants to know where i've been" the country for a photo session with the "kids" and the "grands".

"i'd have to be some kind of natural born fool"

we departed the new wood for a late afternoon of old wood charm at the

not so abandoned Mayflower Dairy Farm in Fredrickson.

"to want to pass that way again"

this location is a favorite place for photographers.

there were several photographers at work on the old farm when we arrived.

as you know late afternoon is "perfect light"!

"but I could feel it"

remnants of visiting 12's!


"on a country road"

the grands finally pooped out after the final shots at the end of this country road.

the photographer was so pleased with the outcome of the session...

...she could not resist putting this image up for preview on Monday morning.

"because i could feel it, child, yeah"
"on a country road"
"walk on down, walk on down, walk on down"
"walk on down, walk on down a country road"
"country road"
"walking on a country road"

" la la la la la la la la la "

( all along...singing sweet baby my mind. )

oh no!

now i'm onto...

in my mind i'm goin' to Carolina!

better git!



  1. The picture of the children is priceless, Lynne! Thank you for sharing your lovely life with us! xoxo

  2. So cute!

    I have some great locations for pictures. I just need some grandchildren!

  3. Oh Lynne, I think I liked this post so much because there's no place like a country road. I love nature and everything it brings. Your grandkids look so sweet in this picture, and they look like they are having so much fun in the country. These pictures are filled with peace, simplicity, and beauty.

    So glad your deck is finished, it's gorgeous. Now it's time to enjoy it!

  7. Those are all really great photos...but my favorite, of course, is the two little sweeties at the end. Have a wonderful week- xo Diana

  8. Bonjour Lynne! I too have been finding it very difficult to get to blog posts ON TIME; school is demanding but wonderful. I love this country road, this place where pure fun and family can meet. Enjoy your deck, enjoy the gathering of memories and building of new ones. LOVE! Anita
