Barktoberfest 2012

Stella passed the AKC Canine Good Citizen test at Barktoberfest ... without even studying! Of course she got to take off her hippie bus costume before the test.

Stella was a bit hesitant after reading the sign but that's where the test was done. She thought they were trying to trick her!

New Electrical

Lots of electrical work in the past month ...

new coach lights & floodlights ...

four new ceiling fans ... this one in the family room ...

& this one in master bedroom, living room & Florida room.

Killer 3-way outdoor switch by the grill. No more going into the garage to turn on the light.

Stella even helped Rick install an outdoor outlet on the screened patio.

Pumpkin Patch Airstream

Today I went to a pumpkin patch with Ilona, Matt, Maddie, Charlie, Mousa, Enid, Rob, Lauren & Abbey. Little did I know this visit would be Airstream heaven!

I LOVE this crackling decal! The pumpkin patch reflecting in the shiny Airstream was an amazing bonus!

It doesn't get any better than this! I could've shot these details all day long!

Okay ... now for the pumpkins ... boring compared to the Airstream for me.

The six foot leg span of the scary rare colossal spider was daunting.

Charlie & Maddie were frolicking thru the patch ...

Until Maddie became the Cat in Hat.

The Fischer-Olayan family

Rob, Lauren & Abbey

Little fashionista Abbey

Rob & Abbey enjoy the view from inside a giant pumpkin.

Pumpkin carving in front of the blazing fire pit at Anna & Tyler's house was our evening activity.

It was a full exhausting day starting at Lauren's with a Stella & Cora playdate.

Cora loves catching splashes as much as Stella does.

Rusty VW Splitty

I got completely sidetracked when I saw this old very rusty Volkswagen van in the parking lot of the hospital's ER. Of course I had to shoot a bunch of pix before doing anything else.

These sure look like bullet holes.

Stella's New Job

Stella finally got her own Home Depot apron. When she wears it, everybody in the store smiles & wants to meet her.

 Hi, My Name Is STELLA

Earlier today, I went to check out the house Chris & Beth are building in JAX Beach. It looks great!

Dogtoberfest 2012

Today Stella & I went to Dogtoberfest at Metropolitan Park. We met lots of nice pups & had fun trick or treating for doggie snacks. One drawback ... Stella really hated the band.

Two Completely Different Subjects

There was some serious tree trimming going on at my house today.

BBQ at Lauren's tonight. At the end of the evening, I spotted this very cool vessel sink in the powder room ...
