Poplar Lodge

Took a drive a few Sundays ago to find the elusive "Poplar Lodge" now defunct due to the past recession, but hoping one day this neat place will be serving dinner again so I can get inside!  Enjoy the photos of this big hunk of rock!































On the way home, picked up dinner at Umi.

A Visit with Linda



Linda and I have been trying to get together for weeks, but you know how busy lives can be!



Got to see her new find, a French dish rack that I know Megan Brockman would love!  Linda, as usual, has everything to make it look perfect!


Speaking of perfection . . . a chocolate martini!


Sitting on the back porch overlooking the lake and catching up, Brownie wants to get in on the conversation.  Annabelle Fern is nowhere to be seen.


So much for the martini!  YUM!

As has come to be expected, a big thunderstorm rolled through.

Please disregard the initial looking through the screen and in the end the singing lol! There were actually waves on the lake from the wind. Next week, Chambord Spritzers at my place!

Rain, Rain Go Away!

Fog, rain and humidity have been the norm the past month.  We can count on a thunderstorm just about every afternoon.

Torrential rain, even the day I went to pick up our newest rescue, Voodoo, a deaf senior who would be staying with me for a few days.  Got to see Renee again, she had been in Switzerland seeing her family for the past month.

Such a sweet little guy.

He loved Daddy's bed so much, I let him take it with him when he left.


You can always see and hear the storms and rain before they make it to us.

My friend George stayed the night at the boathouse arriving at 2 am on his trip back from NY and on his way home to Gulfport, MS.  We finally got to meet Harry, the pyr/chow.

Harry and William were being adopted in NY, but they had a big fight and the adopter kept William, not Harry.  I don't think he minded going back home with George.

Voodoo and Harry's meet and greet.  A little stiff, but hope they are buddies by now.  Voodoo went back with George, he will be going to Houston Chow Rescue.

With so much rain, not much to show in the flower department, but foliage is doing fantastic, as is the lettuce.  We feel like rabbits by now eating so much of it!
