“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

[comment here if you'd like to skip the next Halloween issue...yep, it's October!!!]


<><><>

Last year, I started a tradition of handing out "treats" and not tricks for my commentors. I will again do the same. If you leave comments for me for anytime during the week, I will choose three to five of those that leave a sweet treat for me in the comments! [the sweet treat being kind words!] But to be fair to all the others, just don't grab this for yourself...it's not something for everyone...you have to be picked as you come knocking on my door blog comment link...and actually LEAVE a comment. I then will pick the recipients. And don't feel cheated, I am going to hand them out daily up until Halloween!!! You have all month to be chosen.

So, check back often, you're name may show up here!
To begin my traditional fun, as I love Halloween, the first recipients will be:

storyteller

Jen

Kelli

Sanni

Karen

R J Flamingo


AND!---here is your treat:

[just click on the treat and then it'll open in a new window...grab it there and save it if you'd like to.]

  1. This bronze statue is found at the Art Museum here in Corpus Christi. I love it. Being married to Bud for so many years his influence with his 'love' of the old West has carried over onto me!

  2. I love your Wordless Wednesday Bronze ... and I'm THRILLED to find a TREAT for me here!!! Thank you sooooo much ;--)

    Once again I'm having trouble with your blog recognizing me but I suspect the problem is on MY end because the Dell CRASHED a little while ago and I'm not sure just why. I did successfully leave a comment on your HoTs post by entering my Name and URL ... so that's what I'm going to do with this comment too. Hopefully I'll figure out how to 'fix' what ails my computer tomorrow. I'm too tired to do too much with it today. THANKS AGAIN!!!
    Hugs and blessings,

  10. Anni,

    The statue is beautiful. As you know I love history and this is kewl. Dad instilled a love of the Ol' West in me also, with his tales.

    I'm thrilled that you are bringing back the Sweet Treats tradition of last year and this one is delightful. Congratulations to all who were presented with it. Your creativity and talent always shines through your graphics.

    Have a great day, my friend.
    Blessings,
    Mary

  16. Oh Anni, that's a beautiful photo. I can so relate you love the statue, especially b/c I share your love for the old west. Whenever I think of the Cyber Cruise we've had here on your blog you will see a huge (and I mean HUGE) smile on my face!

  18. Beautiful statue. My grandpa's got a nice collection of small statues of cowboys and native Americans in his house. They've always intrigued me as a child.

    Happy WW, and 1st of October! :)

  19. Love the statue. Is that from the Cowboy Hall of Fame in OK City?

    (really cool site you have here!)

  20. Hi Annie, better even than your statue, and it is a gorgeous piece of work, is your new profile picture and new October blog layout. I love it! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

    I have not been to the Art Museum but have been to the Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History. I am glad you have the Columbus ships there. Corpus Christi is a very nice place to visit. More another day about that.

    Happy Wordless Wednesday and thank you for your visit and nice comment on the cats. Karen hasn't seen it yet.

  22. Happy WW! I've seen similar cowboy bronze statue in the Adams Mark Hotel down in Dallas...

    I invite your blog readers to see why Jenny Craig is a multi-millionaire on my WW-post this week. I gotta go do some sit-ups...

    As you know, I don't Blog, and therefore can not participate in your "sweetness" campaign, but that is not stopping me from tellling you that it is always so much fun to come to your blog, and see what "goodies"you now have done.
    I know you love Halloween and Autumn-it is so clear to me just seing your blog,- always something funny, sweet, and beautiful to see.
    I like the colors of Autumn, but living in Denmark I also know that the winter is near, and that can somtimes bee hard, (but most of the time wonderful in its own way.), and that is why I like your cheerful Halloween pages so much, keep up the good work my friend
    With love

  26. Oh, I want that statue! It also reminds me about the cyber cruise: your wild wild west excursion, remember? That was an awesome post of yours! We had a blast!

    Oh, and thanks, you just reminded me about Halloween. I need to switch to my Halloween theme too!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh how I LOVE this treat! Thanks Anni! You're the best!!!!!!! I love how creative and fun you are!!!

  28. Statues make wonderful pictures because they cooperate so well with the photographer. As is typical, your blog (& WW) is so fun to visit!

    You make me smile, Hootin' A :).

  31. Is this a Frederick Remington sculpture. He really captured a certain aspect of the life in the American West.

    ReplyDelete
  32. What a beautiful statue!! Definitely worthy of WW. :)

    P.S. I love your blog decor - you are so talented!!

    ReplyDelete

  34. Anni, are you ditching me for Fun Monday? I sure hope not... Come join in the fun!

  35. I love that statue. I can see him jumping on and speeding off.

  36. I just had a "d'oh!" moment. I thought it said, "38 who visited and left" and I was like, "well, I didn't know Blogger could do that, count the people who left.... OHHHHH left COMMENTS!" *slaps forehead*

    Anyhow, you're all neat and pretty for Halloween! The place looks good, I like it!

    Happy WW

  39. Just spent about 1 hour catching up with your past posts. Had to chase here and chase there down different paths you included the past month. It's good to be back to my DSL and the 21 century of blogging. Just couldn't keep up with comments on a dial-up this summer.
    I have your recipe for "Sex in a Pan" but my was called "Better than Robert Redford". Must be a regional thing. And Go Bronco's--we won today. 4-1 not a bad start. Start finding the massive orange and blue decorations for the playoffs. My neighbors won't admit they know me when Denver makes the playoff's. Hasn't been a problem the last few years. I also hate Vista--but it did get me exclusive use of the new Toshiba laptop because my hubby hates it worse than I do. Go Obama--I've got to put my Obama(mine) and McCain(DH) signs out this week--now that we're home to protect our house from being egg'd. Thanks for the update on your friend P.J. and for letting us know that you weathered the storm without too much damage.
