Good Fences

Today I'm posting more shots of my last visit with — okay I'm going to get off the track here and go with a name explaination. We always call daughter Tex, but since bloggers might get her confused with TexWisGirl, I'll now refer to her as Punky Doodle. This was my name for her when she was a pretty little redheaded girl. Today she is a pretty lady, but I still see her as Punky Doodle. Anyway, today I'm posting more shots of my last visit with Punky Doodle and the Grands.
Some people are irritated by slow moving farm equipment on the roads, but I always try to be patient and wait for an opportunity to safely pass. We followed a tractor for quite a distance with no room to pass on a narrow road. The tractor turned in here, where this cow was peeking over the fence. We might have missed him had we been traveling at a normal rate of speed. 
A bit farther down the road was a field of sunflowers. No fence, but there were gates.

Back in town, we took a walk through the downtown area and then walked to the library to meet up with #1 Grandson. On the way back to the car, we spotted this place of business.
After reading the sign and a little persuasion from a Grand or two, we decided to go in...
...and this is what we found. Yum! Punky Doodle doesn't allow her family to eat a lot of sweets or snack foods, so this was a special treat.

I'm linking to Good Fences today. Click on the picture below and come join in the fun!

Oh Punky Doodle is such a adorable name too bad Tex is so famous:) but I like this name.
$1 cupcakes where is that yummy. Oh your shots are incredible and please people slow down when you see a tractor you never know what you are missing and honestly you never know what lies ahead. Good advice Roan. HUG B

I like the nickname Punky Doodle. That is so cute and so original. Love the calf peeking from behind the fence.

Oh, and the cupcakes?!!! Yummy.

We are kindred spirits. I posted of the grandkids today.
Yes, I try not to be in a hurry enough that I cannot wait for slow moving tractors. We live in farm land.

I love these rural posts and the fences and gates are great. No sunflowers going to escape from that field! Punky Doodle is a sweet name and I bet the cupcakes were SWEET too! I didn't do Good Fences today because.. does this sound crazy, but we are leaving for St. Louis in just under an hour and I hate it when I can't do comments on other posts and answer comments on my post!

I came here for your Good Fence but was taken by the cupcake sign. I like that style of signage. Thank you for visiting my Abe Lincoln fence.

Punky Doodle is such a cute nickname...I like it! Love the great shot of the sweet cow and...well....a field of sunflowers just makes my heart go pitter patter. There is one near our cabin which we will be visiting next week...sure hope it's not raining so I can get a few shots of them!

I'm glad you slowed down for the farm equipment - otherwise we wouldn't have seen these great sights, either! The field of sunflowers is especially beautiful!
Very cute bakery shoppe. I bet you're the kids' favorite grandma! :D

I can see where the name confusion could become a problem. I like your solution tho!

It's good to slow down so one doesn't miss anything. Those sunflowers are amazing!!!
