One last shot of my beautiful red roses before the freeze comes
tonight. We had a heavy frost this morning, but the roses
survived. I can't wait until they bloom again next year!

Demon Cat

Snapped this picture of Bullet running down our hallway.
He looks like a little demon cat. I love how the glow from
his eyes are reflecting off the hardwood floor. Spooky!

Trash Truck Fun

Trash pickup in our neighborhood is every Tuesday morning.
This cute little dachshund mix dog loves to run behind the
trash truck. When the truck stops, he stops and watches the
men empty the trash cans.

He waits until they're finished, then he follows them back down
the road.

Ah, the simple joys of being a dog!

Fall Flowers

Our rose bush always gets it's second wind
in late summer and early fall.

We decided a few weeks ago to try and grow some
sunflowers in our planters since we didn't get to plant
any at the beginning of the growing season. We found
some seeds and planted three or four. This one is the
biggest of the ones we planted, but I fear they're not
long for this world with a possible freeze in the forecast.

Our Jackamanii Clematis are pretty hardy as well. I hate to see
them go. Wish we could skip winter and go directly to spring!

Our Zinnias are showing some wear and tear, but are still pretty.
They can tolerate some frost, but not a freeze.

I took this picture of my kitten, Bullet, with my macro lens.
The great thing about that lens is not only can you take
macro shots with it, but you can also use it as a regular
lens. Sweet!

Because of my recent knee surgery, I've gotten
a late start on my Fall decorating. I told Terry
that the neighbors were making us look bad :0)
So, we got these beautiful Fall mums and a couple
of pumpkins. Can't believe Halloween is less than
two weeks away.

Welcome Fall!

Parting Shots

These are shots taken in and around the Tennessee Aquarium.

Looking down from inside the Ocean Journey building.

Tennessee River...Chattanooga riverfront.

This was the longest elevator I've ever ridden! I took this shot
halfway up the elevator ride looking down.

Riverfront in Chattanooga from outside the aquarium.

Sea Turtle

My favorite turtle at the Tennessee Aquaurium was the Sea
. I spent a lot of time watching him. He was very curious
and would swim right up to the front of the tank to check me

Turtles, Turtles and more Turtles

If you love turtles, you need to take a trip to the Tennessee
Aquarium. They had all kinds, shapes, sizes and colors of

Giant Snapping turtle.
