Sunny Afternoon

Saturday, December 28, 2013

We were exercising the dogs. Huck was sneaking up on Meg's.

I threw the ball to Meg's, but Huck grabbed it.

I think Meg's was planning revenge.

Sarge decided to join in on the fun.

Taking a break.

We finished exercising Huck and Meg's, and started driving over Godes hill to Leona Valley. We stopped at the Aqueduct. I wanted to see if any Ducks were around. What a pleasant surprise. There were probably 50 or more. I could have taken pictures there all day. Beautiful weather, beautiful Ducks. Here are some of my favorite pics.

We arrived at Leona Valley. Papa Hawk wasn't around, but I did take a pic of the area.

We drove up the road to where we usually see the Texas Longhorns. There were a few. The Bison's were not far from the Longhorns. Made for a nice picture.

I'm not sure if this one is a Longhorn, but it was a cutie.

Time to call it a day!

My knee is feeling a lot better, but I still can't sit at the computer for a long time. So bare with me!!

    Hi Jeanne! Again, great photos as usual! My favorites are the calves though the ducks have those brilliant green feathers on their heads! Beautiful indeed! I love Border Collies and always enjoy seeing them, they are so intelligent, you can see it in their eyes! emoticon emoticon

    The duck photos are beautiful and your dogs look so happy.

At home, my desk chair is my recliner. I put the keyboard on my lap and mouse on the arm part of the recliner. My feet at up. I don't know if you can set up something similar to support your knees. I hope it feels better today. emoticon
