Michigan Animal Tales.....

Well, just a few pictures for Show and Tell at No Place Like Home. I am still away and about...but my month trip is nearing to an end. I only have a few pictures downloaded today...so just a taste of some of the adventures. See the Michigan coat? My son in a BIG fan of Michigan State and believe me I was glad to have the coat on! It was freezing to the bones of this AZ girl!
I seem to have become a Mrs. Doolittle on this trip. I have seen deer, mallards, geese, sheep, racoon, squirrels and more. These cows were far away in a field. I got out to take a pictures and started "sweet talking" to the cows...and lo and behold, they started coming to me! It was unbelievable! Course, I was standing by the water tub!

This horse is named Little Joe from Bonanza. We bonded! No kidding...the horse taxi was waiting and this horse was just wanting me to talk to him and stroke his nose. He was beautiful. His partner horse - Hoss, could have cared less I was there!

I don't know whether I should be pleased or concerned that the animals come to me. We even saw 3 American eagles flying over our heads, and I mean many times back and forth. Very hard to get a picture though... but it was thrilling to see so many and so close!

Well, my days in Michigan are coming to an end. I fly home next Wednesday. I have so much to share with you when I get back. Thanks to you all who have left me messages. I check often! Although I hate leaving, I am anxious to be home with my husband and my home! But until then...
GO BLUE!

Hi Ceekay,

It's lovely to hear from you! You are one lucky gal - being able to be on a month long trip. It looks like you have had a great time... I enjoyed the pictures!

Take care, and enjoy the rest of your trip!

How delightful. Isn't it fun to have these different kinds of adventures. I wish it was cold enough here to wear a jacket. I love jackets and sweaters but it is rarely cold enough to wear them. I'm ready for some cold weather.
Hugs,
Charlotte

Trips are SO much fun aren't they? I always know I am rested when I don't mind going back home again! It sounds like your trip will provide you with a lot of S&T in the Fridays to come!

That's so cute that the horses were named after characters in Bonanaza! I think you should be really pleased that the animals came to you - they're a good judge of character :-)

Hey CeeKay, you're here and didn't stop by and say hello? Maybe next trip. We are turning a bit frigid up this way with our first serious snow predicted for Sunday. Have a great trip and safe journey home.

Alice said...

Great pictures! Looks like a great trip. I loved the horse shots, even looks like one goat(?) in there. lol

Carla said...

I hope you had HUGE fun. Lil Joe has always been a kiss up:).

So are you CK or Cheek-y???
Stay safe!

Jen said...

Very cute pictures. My son loved the pumpkin.

Looks like you and your animal friends are having a great time. I've always believed that if animals are drawn to you, it means you are of good character. I thin animals (and children) can sometimes see what we adults cannot.

Carla said...

By cheeky I meant SASSY!

Looks like great fun. What a nice thing to be able to spend so much time with family. And maybe the animals thought you looked tasty!

Omgosh, your husband didn't go with? It seems like you've been gone forever. We are going to New York in December. I need to invest in a heavy coat and long johns. I will probably freeze my butt off.
