Georgian Dog In A Cold Autumn Sunset

Princess, daughter of Grandpaw Ron has come for a visit to Southern Ontario and is going to be very busy helping Shopper write out invitations to send to the Blogger pets for a visit. It has been almost two years since they have all been together. As Mr. and Mrs. Jim will be going to Guatemala, Adi will be free to round up everybody and has already offered to fly them all over. There will be a few new friends joining them for this visit.
They will have to wait until Monday though to be posted as tomorrow it is Miss Sara's anniversary and Sunday's post will belong to her!
Besides Adi will be running a little late as she and Katrin and Amber must make the trip over to India to pick up Amrita's kid, Sheeba!
Amazing grace man, don't you be too worried about Princess because as I have already told you, Shopper's daddy Bernie and I have got quite a large supply of canned sour apple sauce to feed her as well as several bags of frozen carrots and cans of cat treats. There will be no catering to her as you do! Fresh golden granny smith apples indeed and fresh peaches!!! You really do spoil that girl RRBJ!
Well I must bid you adieu for now as I strongly suspect that Princess and Shopper are snooping about looking for those fresh raspberries I have hidden in the fridge!! Way to expensive this time of year to be wasting them on those Blogger Pets!!
PS Princess has asked Shopper to sing a welcome song to the visiting pets who are coming from all parts of the globe, eh?
All in all, it will be a happy but busy time!!!...............Love from Bernie and Terry and Shopping News

One Special Ruby Tuesday Tree

Visit this site at your own risk.
It IS a lovely one but it will take your time!!
Trust me!
I know!
And trust me!
I am really glad that Felisol from the far side of the sea asked me to check it out!
For you see! I have come to love it and the people that I have met because of it!
Some old friends like Felisol, Mr. Jim, Sue Sioux, and Donna and Amrita, and Mrs. Mac.
And some new friends like The Teach, herself, Greyscale,Gattina, Raven, Askew, Gayle, Dianne, and "Just Me"!

This bright Monday morning, Bernie and I decided to go to another local store, NOT to shop but to take some pictures.
It just seems that the prettiest autumn trees are hanging around the shopping centres!
Every Fall we visit one special tree that never fails to bring us delight
I think it is the reddest tree that we have ever seen!
On our way from the little red car, we stopped to talk to a lad who has been our paper boy for at least seven years.
He was dog-sitting for lady who had to to into the store.
I noticed the bright red trim on his grey jacket and told him, "Stand right there Paper Boy, and you too Mr. Shirkie!
And then I snapped this first picture for the Teach and her Ruby Tuesday
The little black doggie with his white slippers made a nice
touch to the photo.

"Well there she is Bernie! Our friend for years, the red tree.
Too bad we don't know what her name is, eh?"
I took the first picture from a little distance.
Bernie said that it would be nice to photograph the tree as we got closer and closer to its beauty.
So this first picture had a nice green trim around it

A few steps further and the little leaves were like miniature hand waves rippling on a sunny day,
Beckoning us to come closer,
And yet closer,
Right into its heart where among the crimson branches we saw the reddish orange berries!
Food fit for the royalist of the birds!
Here I stand feeling very privileged beside the gorgeous tree! And here stands Bernie, dressed in blue, making a nice contrast.
I think that the lack of a smile on Bernardo's face is because of the fact that he knows that in two short hours, he must leave this pretty sight and the sunshiny day and go into work!

On our way back to the little red car, we met the mommy of the little black dog with the white slippers.
She told us that her doggie's name is Nikki!
We took this last picture because not only were they a cute couple, but I just adore red brick wherever it be: on a building, on a fireplace or on a floor!
