Drab

 

 100_2119e1   I’m sure a hard-working farm dog has to grab 20 winks whenever and wherever he can!

I’ve discovered a blog I enjoy through Hilary at The Smitten Image. (I love how that works — when you “meet” someone new through a blog roll.  It’s like being introduced to a new, interesting person at a party!)

The new (to me) site is by Carmi at Written Inc.  He regularly puts forth  a subject as he did a few days ago with “drab”,  and then invites readers to link to a picture they have taken that relates to that subject.  What a neat idea!

I’ve forwarded pictures a couple times, and I like the way his subject prods me to remember a picture I’ve taken that fits.

So, when I thought about “drab” I remembered this picture I took at The Gourd  Barn  last fall.

Although, somehow I feel I’m being disrespectful to this sweet, sleeping dog to call it “drab” so maybe we should just call it “mono-chromatic”.

Thanks for putting me on to Carmi’s site, Hilary.  And thanks for giving me a reason to remember a favorite picture, Carmi!

    I bet that is one happy, hard-workin’ farm dog. He probably doesn’t even mind being called “drab.” 🙂

    Beth — He was under a table in the big barn where all the gourds were being sold, so lots of activity going on all around him. I almost missed seeing him because he blended in with his background so well, and that was probably to his benefit — no one bothered him!

    Aww how cute is that? I love the snoozing dog.

    I’m so glad that you and Carmi have found one another’s blogs. You’re two of the sweetest bloggie people out here and I’m glad that Carmi’s and my near-meeting last month caused you to take note of his fine site. Thanks for the shout-out, dear friend. 🙂

    That’s a great photo … the dog looks so peaceful and not really that’drab’ 🙂

    Hilary — I’m glad I “met” Carmi through you. Just one of the nice things that have resulted from our friendship! 🙂

    Karen — I was fascinated by his coloring and how it blended with everything around him. He does look peaceful, doesn’t he? 🙂

    I like your choice. Camouflaged would be another good description – as he kind of blends in with the environment.

    Good idea, Pam. He definitely blends in! 🙂
