Your yard is beautiful. Those trees are breathtaking. And that pie can take a prize also.
Both sons are on duty today......one day on and two days off. They do look for trouble but are highly trained. I may listen to the scanner tonight to see if they have any runs.

The yard was in need of being cut when the pic was taken but looked kinda OK. Last year, at this time, we had snow.

Looking towards my 'wildlife area' (2 acres). Fenced yard is for the dogs to romp in.....hose is drained and left hanging because it's ~300' of hose so I can water the garden.

Here's their kitchen
The son that lives with me is with a township fire dept......his older brother is with the city of Columbus. They both worked hard to get where they're at but the oldest son had to go through an extra 7 months training with the city.

Nice kitchen.....they always get the best stuff.

Cute future firefighter......I don't have any that young. My youngest turned 10 last June.....and lives with me (along with her 11 and 15 year old sisters). The oldest grand-daughter turned 17 a few days ago.

Sweet pics, Cheryl. My dad was the volunteer fire chief for our little town for many years. My baby bro would take a whiff of him when he got home, and would say, "Dad, you smell just like bacon."

They go through lotsa bacon. Makes no difference if it's breakfast or not.

Thanks, Dawg....there's been some incredible sunsets here the past few days.
I can't take credit for this pic...a local friend got this amazing shot. I took a few pics from my house but there's a streetlamp and houses from my driveway view - her pic is better from down the street and away from the obstructions. :-)
