I’m not sure what this is, he said Toad sticker, but he was teasing…, hairpin, pickle fork, gew gaw and prototype for his new dowsing stick.

    Great photos as always, I love the hairpin pickle fork, it is lovely just for itself and the skill it represents.

    Your photos are amazing! I loved each one of them AND I loved the Thanksgiving ideas.

    Currently I am trying to figure out what to serve and do for Christmas Eve and Christmas day….I would like to do nothing, but I don’t suppose that would work. (smile)

    Your pictures are always the best. Prototype for a new dowsing stick? I’ve used wooden ones before, just a stick from the tree; however, now I am curious.

    That has to be the most gorgeous iceberg lettuce I’ve ever seen!

    Holy Moly! The sun rise picture is AMAZING! The morning dew and the dogs are truly beautiful as well.

    I’m glad Hank is still around.

    Love those Aussies. Would you trade me for two disobedient, high-energy Irish Terriers?

    Absolutely gorgeous photos ~ I love the quail……was he injured or just dazed? such beautiful markings.

    I love hubby’s hooks and Toad sticker 🙂

    Are you sure it’s not a nut picker? 🙂 Beautiful pictures, all.

    Great pictures. Love them all, couldn’t pick a favorite!

    the top picture made me gasp. lovely.

    I want to thank everyone for their comments and give my kid at least half the credit for the photos. 🙂

    Robbyn, TC, and Ali, thank you!

    Linda, let me know if your Christmas plan works… 🙂

    Linda, thank you, I’ll take that as a compliment.

    Annette, thanks. HD works for a city water department, and believe it or not they sometimes dowse for locates. So of course he has to make something cool to show off… I just use brass welding rods that were my late brothers, it makes me feel close to him when I use them. I would like to try a stick, does it matter what kind of wood?

    Denise, that Iceberg lettuce is from WildGarden Seeds, it can be fairly cold hardy, but it is different from regular iceberg lettuce.

    Jocelyn, thanks! I’m glad it’s dew not ice – yet.

    Joanna, as of today Hank is still here, hunting up a storm! I don’t know if it would be a fair trade: two disobedient Aussies for two disobedient IT’s! 🙂

    Debi, thanks, that is quail torture, I caught him/her in the greenhouse, all his covey was gone when we brought him back, but he twittered and ran into the hedge, so I think he just had a big story to tell to his buddies. His plumage was beautiful.

    I love the hooks too, makes my twine look kinda special hanging on hook instead of a nail.

    Cassandra, nut picker would be good, my first thought was toothpick…

    Kim, thanks.

    Annie, thank you.

    Heidi, with the winter sun, we are getting views that we don’t see in the summer, and with the fog, I agree WOW!
