Random Pictures



This afternoon, I drove Tank into town to pickup his truck from the shop.  While driving there, I captured a few random pictures.
It rained all morning, I'm not complaining.....we need the moisture
Enough rain to get the dry creek bed flowing again
One of the neighbors got his tilling done before the rain

 
Gas prices in town going up once again

 


Indian Grass Steel Sculpture




I love pictures of trees standing by themselves
 
 
 

 
Rain turning into snow (large flakes)




Beans is not happy, see the large blurry
 snow flakes (he doesn't want to get wet)



The large flakes landing on him



Bug is not happy, these strange flying things
 are trying to get me (one got my ear)



Beans in his bed giving me the one eyed glare



The snow is starting to pick up



The snow is coming down but not staying






Happy Valentine's Day!!!

    1. Maybe you won't get the snow? Yes, Beans is very unique and we love him. He tries to let us know who's boss (tries).

    1. It's as if the tree has a story to tell you.

  5. Wish you hadn't post the gas prices...ugh. Ours went up almost 18c in one week. We are now 9c cheaper than the sign, for now. Hmmmph

    We had a dusting of snow also, bit peculiar since I am in Arizona but it didn't stay around.

    1. Every day here gas has been going up several cents a day.

      It started raining, then snowing, then back to raining and now it's snowing and the temperature is dropping.

  6. Love the photo's Sandy. We haven't had any snow since the late 80's here which is a good thing. No one in the south can drive in the white stuff!

    1. Cherie,

      Thanks, the Indian Grass Sculpture is in Norman, OK on East Main. In Oklahoma City, there are several steel sculptures that are amazing. The Skydance Bridge is not to old, here's what she looks like

      Then there's Iron Feathers at the airport

      Oklahoma has some really nice sculptures, so does Texas. I haven't been on 677 south of Saint Jo, TX. It sounds like an area to go check out.

      I tried to e-mail you to let you know the package was sent out, expected delivery Feb 14th. Your e-mail had a no reply. I had to bend the card board package to get it to fit. The post office at the time I was mailing your give-away to you didn't have the larger box I wanted. If you would like the tracking number, please e-mail me. Thanks!

    1. Sweet Kymber,

      She doesn't care if you call her a guy or gal as long as you pet her and give her treats.

  10. I'm still laughing. The very first picture of Beans, and I'm thinking "She has a gray pig?"

    OMG

    1. Lotta Joy,

      He does look like a gray pig if you look fast at the picture. He's a rescued over weight Chihauhau with a great personality. His actual color is called silver. I believe when we went to see if we wanted to take him home to be a pet, he chose us.

    1. Susie,

      Thank you. It's cold here today and sunny.
      Gas prices are always going up and down here it just depends on the day. Gas went up 2 cents today.
      My pups are crazy, they keep me entertained and I love them.

      Enjoy your day,
      Sandy

  13. Hi Sandy,

    I saw on Kymber's blogroll that you had taken pictures. I love to look at pictures from areas that I've never seen - so here I am. The landscape is quite beautiful with those green fields and country roads. I don't see mountains, so I think the region may be flat much like out prairie provinces here.

    Your little puppies are adorable ! I think they'll keep you amused for many years to come.

    Have a great weekend !

    1. Hi Helga,

      The landscape here is praire lands, you will see hills and large rocks out in the western part of Oklahoma.

      Oh yes, the puppies keep me very entertained, lol...

      Have a wonderful weekend.

  14. Hi, Sandy, I've been subscribed here for a while, and wanted to invite you to share your excellent post on water filtration (http://oklahomatransient.blogspot.ca/2012/04/water-filtration.html) at the brand new Preparedness Fair, a blog hop/link party). That post inspired me as I'd never even realized making your own high quality filter like that was even possible, and that was why I subscribed! :) I really hope you'll join the "Fair" here: http://preputilityvehicle.blogspot.ca/2013/02/preparedness-fair-1_15.html

    Thanks so much!
    Sincerely
    Natalia

    1. Natalia,

      The water filtration system in the post you mentioned, outlines our source and where we borrowed the information for making a gravity fed safe drinking water filtration system. I would love it if you would be so kind to recommend,invite, and offer Mike Yukon of http://livingprepared.blogspot.com/2011/01/gravity-fed-safe-drinking-water-filter.html

      this opportunity.

      Your Friend,
      Sandy
