Hello Friends!

So here we are at the end of another very busy and chaotic week.  This is beginning to be a pattern in our lives; but I have to say that it's all good.  So many things have transpired this week and the last 36 hours have been especially interesting.  I'm not ready to get into all of that right now but I will tell you about that sometime soon when we have more time together.

Before I head off to work for a little bit, I want to share with you a little about the new place that we are living.  I've shared with you that we went around exploring last weekend and we discovered some interesting sites along the way.  So without further adieu.......

Yes, friends....
Those are doors. Doors set up in the middle of the woods. 

Where do they lead?  I dunno.... 
We thought about trying to go through them but didn't want to trespass.  Who knows where we might have ended up?!

Yup.....we have arrived in the Land of Weird.

Remember the pictures of the pretty horses in the morning mist that I posted the other day?  

At the driveway to that property, I saw this sign......

 Goat protection area? 
What does that even mean?

For the record, we saw no goats at all there.  No goats protecting the place and no goats being protected.  Whatever?!  Moving on....

What we did see occupying the pasture with the pretty horses were these two guys.....
Let's look a bit closer at this idyllic scene.  

Yes, folks......that would be a longhorn steer and a buffalo sharing breakfast together.   I'm sorry for the quality of picture.  I couldn't get closer and I haven't gotten that zoom lens yet to play with.  Are they protecting the goats that we have yet to see or are they being protected by the goats?  Who knows...

Yes...it's the Land of Weird!

Meanwhile back at mi casa, we had some light bulbs that blew out and we noticed something that I don't ever think I've seen before....

67 watts?  52 watts?   
I don't know what to say......

If you take all of those unusual things and you add them to this strange sign that I've already shared with you....
you most definitely have

The Land of Weird....

Have a great weekend, friends!

  15. This is just too funny! I definitely think you're in the land of weird! If your posts become weird, I'll let you know that it's rubbed off and you need to MOVE!! LOL!

  16. Love your weird signs and photos. Doors in the middle of the woods? Goat protection? Saw one recently outside Boson, at The Fells, a park with hiking trails. "No Live Parking" So, does that mean dead parking is allowed?

  17. Oh My Honey!!! I'm afraid for you!! I'm also afraid that you are somewhere me and then I'm afraid for me too!
