The Weekend

My favorite swinging bridge. You have to click on the photo and enlarge to see the swinging bridge just above the concrete railing here. This is in Florence MS.

You couldn't have asked for a prettier day than this. Such a pretty shade of blue with a few wispy clouds. Even the temps were pleasant. Actually set some record lows for this time of year. This AM is was 62 degrees - temps we normally see in Oct. (Could this be the reason a few pecan trees are losing their nuts prematurely?) Maybe an early fall?


Buddy has to be clean to visit relatives. He hates the whole bath process - but just like children he loves the water.



He rides in the passenger seat in his bed. He is most comfortable in his own diggs with a pillow to block some sun.


Luci's birthday cake. She is going to be 5.





The hand is suppose to be a puppy dog begging, but one hand had to hold the purse.



Ben love the pirates. Everything is about pirates right now.

Calm.

I had a great weekend. The only thing that could have made it better is if I had stayed and gone to church with them. I regret not attending with them.

Hi Becca, Buddy looks so pitiful in the bathtub... BUT--I'll bet he looks better and smelled good when he got out!!!!!

Cute birthday cake. Luci is a cutie pie. And I'll bet Ben enjoyed the pirates' stuff...

Hugs,
Betsy

I think the bridge would give me nightmares!!! Buddy is so cute in the tub! Luci with her cake is such an adorable photo and Ben with his pirates stuff is cute.

I don't always want to bath either, feel better when I do and the people around me appreciate it!! LOL...looks like a nice weekend.

Does Buddy like baths? I don't think most dogs do.

A lovely old swinging bridge I might add....
Poor Buddy, he looks pitiful taking a bath, but so lovely and fluufy afterwards.
What cute children, doing what they do best, having fun!

I don't know anything about swinging bridges, do you walk across them? I'd be a bit nervous doing that!
Looks like you had lots of fun. It's a nice feeling at the end of a really good weekend.

The swinging bridge is lovely. Can it accomodate any type of traffic?
