Tweet, Tweet :)

We had a wonderful weekend with Brian's parents. On Friday night, we had dinner at Ramsey's which is the ultimate in southern comfort food. Then we came home and watched The Wrestler in HD....shoowee, i wasn't quite prepared for the gore, but i could appreciate Mickey Rourke's performance. Note to self: Remember to warn my own mother NOT to see this movie. She would be horrified.
On Saturday, we enjoyed a leisurely morning on the patio soaking up the warm breeze and lots of coffee. After that, we headed to our favorite lunch spot and then to the Equus Run Vineyards for some wine tastings and afternoon jazz. The ride out there is absolutely beautiful and the weather was P-E-R-F-E-C-T. Here is a photo of me with a painted horse sculpture at the vineyards (would love to have that in my yard!) and a lovely shot of some guys fly fishing.

We finished up our day with a hearty dinner at an Italian Lexington classic, Joe Bologna's, and a competitive game of Scattergories.

This piece is available in my etsy shop right now.

Have a wonderful week, everyone!!!

That is funny you mentioned that movie. I knew I would not like it so I had Dave watch it last night in the theatre room and I stayed in the library and watched a chick flick, instead. LOL After watching No Country for Old Men...I won't just watch a movie because it got nominated or won I hate violence

I love the little chick! How sweet!

Keep your chin up regarding the cats, doing what's right is sometimes really heartbreaking. My worst memory is trying to save a collie that was trapped on a busy interstate. I couldn't catch it but did manage to chase it into a wooded area. Trafic wasn't slowing, animal control hadn't responded and I couldn't catch the dog. I reluctantly got in the car and back on the road...just in time to see the collie run across and get struck. I pulled over, dragged it off the road and just sat there and cried. Sometimes no matter what we try with animals, God has other plans.

Know that even saving one gives hope to the other creatures and other people that try to make a difference.

Best wishes and high hopes to you,
