Howdee all,

We needed a bit of Nature…so Sicksta Dell, Jeff and I drove to

South Park near Pittsburgh…

Dell and I took a little stroll.

It was a gray day…

Wishing you all a Wonderful Thanksgiving!

Once in NC, I hope to be back in the Social networking swing of things.

See you all then!


  1. A nice walk enjoying nature does seem very relaxing at least for me it does. I hope all goes well with your Colin's surgery. I will keep him in my prayers. Wonderful nature photos, Dawn!

  2. Ah, there nothing to pick me up better than a nice walk with nature!
    So glad you were able to get out in it a bit. Praying everything goes well with the surgery and you are all together in NC for Thanksgiving.

  3. Love the photos and glad you got a break to go and walk... We are praying for Colin and a speedy recovery!

  4. Stopping by and leaving a comment ;)

  5. Serenity..catching the mood of November & the mood of a family healing. zhope you make it to NC for Thsnksgiving!

  6. Dawn, your photos show the subtle quiet beauty of late fall. You have an artist's eye. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. Hope everything goes well with Colin! I bet he'll be happy to get the protective helmet off. He'll feel more himself - a big step forward.

  7. Thank you all for your very kind comments.
    I appreciate all of your prayers and support.
    Thank you thank you...from the bottom of my heart.

    I will sound like a broken record to some..but here goes.
    Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to your comments and respond to them.

    It has been a difficult month to say the least. I didn't realize that I was all consumed and even though I had times when i could have commented and responded to comments I just couldn't find the strength to do it.

    Now that Colin is well again and life is happy again..
    I will try to catch up with all of you.


ok what do you really think?????
