County Fair 2010

My husband and I took our daughter to the County Fair a couple of weeks ago, we love to go for the exhibits, Polish sausage, and we love to eat funnel cake. I love to go look at the animals they are so precious, but it was really hot this year. The first Saturday we went it rained and it cooled off but we had to find a place to keep out of the rain for about 45 min to hour.  Before it rained I took pictures of the rabbits and chickens & pigs. My daughter and I wanted to bring home a rabbit, but my husband thought we had enough pets with my 2 yorkies.  I felt sorry for the animals out in the heat they were covered but it was still hot.  I took pictures of other exhibits I will post those later.
The hen above was my favorite, I just loved the colors on her feathers.
when I saw this rooster the feathers, they looked like they would be belong in a lady fancy expensive hat.
Pigs enjoying the hot summer day
Who dont love the pig races!!

Humming Bird

I found this poor little humming bird in my garage on Sunday, I had went to go get a coke out of our coke machine. I noticed my dog Isabelle was looking up and did not want to leave. She would look up and then look at me with this look on her face like dont you see it?  when I looked up I saw this poor humming bird in flying around the garage trying to find his way out.  We had our garage doors open, it was so hot in there.

I went and grabbed my camera to get pictures of him.  I had my daughter come out and help me we got the broom to get him on the bristles so he could latch on and we can carry him outside he stayed there for few seconds before he flew away.
Thank Goodness Isabelle saw him or he would have probably died from exhaustion trying to find a way to get out.

I love Meerkats

Happy Friday,
I am so glad it is Friday, I did not realize it was Friday the 13th. Eeek. I wanted to post pictures I had taken of Meerkats. I did not realize how cute they were until I saw them on Animal Planet Meerkat Manor.  I loved that show it made me laugh and cry. My favorite meerkats were mozart and flower, Carlos.  It would break my heart to see these little animals picked up by hawks for get bit by snakes and see them being taken off or lay there and die.  I eventually had to quit watching the show after flower died it would break my heart. 
These pictures I took at Zoo, these Meerkats are little fatter compared to the Meerkats in Africa. They are so cute I would love to have one as a pet but I know that would not work out well. 
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great weekend

My Heart is sad

I'm sad to hear in the news earlier this past week a young man from our town was killed in Aphganastan by a I.E.D.  He was only 21 years old.  Tonight I heard of another solder for the Middle TN area has been billed by another I.E.D.  It saddens me to hear of any U.S Soldier who is killed in the Middle East.  I was going by the funeral home Saturday and they had the American flags in front of the funeral home it brought tears to my eyes to see this young man name in front of the funeral home.  I did not know this young man who paid the ultimate sacrafice. When a death hits in your home town it makes the war all that much more real. 
I keep all the soldiers and theire families in my prayers.
