Oh my Pat, that has to be heaven on earth for sure. Your pics are all just gorgeous. Now that I would love to be able to do for at least a day, but a few weeks would be better. Check out my blog I am taking a poll to see who would be interested in a Cloche Party. Let me know. Hugs, Marty

Hello, Pat,
I have visited the area you are in, I think. My at one time Sister-in-law lives in Jeff City. When we were there every other person we ran into was a cousin of hers. Seriously!
Her name (names?) is Linda Kay Stockman, Bentzen, Guinn Bax.
I'm just checking.
You aren't her cousin, are you?
It is beautiful there!

I did not know that you lived on the ozarks. We used to vacation there when I was a kid, beautiful place. I remember it spoiled me for fishing...I didn't catch fish so easily anywhere else. Thanks for coming by today.

Stacey said...

Pat, you lucky girl! You and J enjoy your time there.

bj said...

As I have mentioned before, you and J are very blessed to live in such a beautiful spot..at home or at the lake....

jeanne said...

Hi Pat, Life is good on the Lake of the Ozarks. Delicious food, a view to die for, and surroundings that are beautiful. Love your photos Pat and your post. I can do without the nest maker!!!

I want to tell you that I am using my macro setting as of today. I am still learning and I haven't downloaded my camera yet. We have seen so much wildlife and tomorrow I am doing Outdoor Weds. with just my wildlife photos. The wildflowers are just starting but I have a few to share. I am buying a book tomorrow so I can identify them before I post them. We are loving Yellowstone.

I better get busy on my post for tomorrow. I am managing to post, but visiting is not so easy. We are so tired each evening after playing all day.

Hugs...Jeanne
