Willy-Nilly 5

Wow! A new photo theme. This one is called Willy-Nilly Friday Five. Yay! Rules? Well the rules are— there are no rules. Well except for the directive to post 5, count them 5 random thoughts, link up, and visit some blogs. According to our head guru, Tanya,wil·ly-nil·ly is an adverb—without direction or planning; haphazardly. That's the way I live life, haphazardly. So here are my five: 
In case you haven't read my blog before, this is Fergus. He is celebrating his 1st Barkday, today, Thursday, while I write this post. He has filled the void left when Willie crossed the rainbow bridge. Willie was a much calmer sort. Fergus is a bundle of energy and keeps us old folks on the go. Not a bad thing. Fergus can destroy a dog toy in seconds, well, unless it is made by Kong. This red dumbell is made by Kong and he is obsessed with it. We gave him two more balls and a squeez toy for his birthday. He is in doggie heaven.
Fergus is also obsessed with his Pop. I will do in a pinch, but Pop is the bestest human ever. Pop was busy filling a watering can to water the window boxes. Fergus is busy watching his pop from the confines of our screened in porch. Note the tongue hanging out gathering lots of slimey saliva to smear on his red dumbell before begging you to throw it. And if you don't readily accept it, he keeps nudging you with it, thus wiping all the slime on his humans.
As I posted earlier in the week, I went to granddaughter's dance recital last Saturday. I did find one other picture I can post without showing her face and this is it. It's the final pose of her hip hop dance. Did I mention she was a wonderful dancer? Oh, and I'm not biased at all.
One of my favorite things to do is look for deer while out driving on the country roads. We often see them when coming home in the evening from our garden on Bro O's farm. This is one we saw a couple of nights ago. She was all alone eating some of Mr. Farmer's new soybeans. Mr. Farmer won't be happy, but I enjoyed seeing this doe.
Small towns really don't provide much entertainment for the kids, so I was happy to see what was advertised as 'Family Day'. I drove by in the early afternoon and it looked like everyone was having a good time. I hope it becomes an annual event. We need more fun for the kids.

Fergus looks like the dog of my youth, and also acts like her! These types of dogs like to be very active and alert, I believe there is some herding in them. I love the picture of looking through the screen! I'm glad you found another picture, I bet that costume was outstanding, it looks beautiful. The deer, there are too many around here and they get hit by cars and lay on the roadside. This is dangerous business for us humans as well, they can demolish a car or a person. A deer hit our car a few years ago up on a mountain. I think we may have been killed if we were not going very very slow, like 10 M.P.H.

Glad to know that fergus is celebrating his one year! He looks smart!
Can imagine how good your granddaughter will dance.
Nice to spend time with kids!

Your Fergus is so like my Gus in name and character - Gus is 9 now and will play for hours with a ball constantly bringing it back to be thrown again covered in slobber. He also has his tongue hanging out most of the time.

Love this photo of your grandaughter too, so graceful!

Lovely photos! Our grandkids are on their way for a sleepover. Their daddy has to send 6 million email for a client. They're going to leave him home to do that.

I like your 5 thoughts and photos. I've noticed some advertisements around here for a bouncy castle festival. I wonder if adults are allowed... ;-)
