Carnegie Visual Arts Center

Yesterday, Gwen and I went to Carnegie Visual Arts Center in Decatur, Alabama.

My favorite exhibit was “Safe” by Sarah Carlisle Towery.  The colors in the painting are striking.  You can see the deep emotions felt by the subject of the painting.  I think it’s an excellent piece of art, and I really enjoyed having the opportunity to view it.

Ferocious Rabbits

We live in a rural community, so it’s common for wild animals to wonder into our yard. This past week we had several rabbits come for a visit.

When the dogs see the rabbits, they immediately start barking and growling.   The rabbit runs off in fear and the dogs look rather pleased with themselves.

I feel safer now, knowing I can go into the front yard and not be attacked by ferocious bunny rabbits.  – Thanks Guys 🙂

Rescuing a Bee

FullSizeRender-2.jpg

Various flying insects land in the puppy pool and since they can’t get out, they drown.  If I find one that is still alive, I will rescue the poor soul.

The other day, I found a bee in the pool.  It was desperately trying to get out of the water.  I put my hand in the pool, slowly moved under the bee, and lifted it out of the water.  Then I took the bee to a safe place for it to dry off and rest, while it recovered from the ordeal.

This wasn’t my first bee rescue and if you are wondering do I ever get stung.  The answer is yes.  However, I don’t blame the bee and I continue to rescue them.

I am the Bee Rescuer.  🙂
