Kickin' back, musing, observing, and gathering inspiration from the hills of East Tennessee.

Inky Bear, a black (actually he's rather brown) lab mix, is a neighbor's dog. He's very friendly.Nacho, the donkey, belongs to another neighbor. He loves our morning treat of apple or carrot. He is lonely, though, since his horse companion Early Girl left, and needs a friend. We're hoping the owners, who don't live here full-time, will get another donkey or horse to keep him company. My DH tried to get him to smile by tickling his nose . . . oooh, watch that finger!!Angel is my calico cat who is an indoor cat but I walk her on a leash and she is tied out on the line when she wants to go out (when I don't). She doesn't like it too cold, though, and in this picture she was patiently waiting for me to let her in.
Rabbits cookin' coffee -- that's what the locals call it. But here in this little hollow in East Tennessee, when the hills surrender their misty hostage to reveal the stalwart cedars growing by the stream in our pasture, I know there is no place on earth I would rather be. The welcome mat is out! Come and sit on the porch and chat with me awhile!
