Scout Report

Hello from 50 Shades of Green Acres.  We’ve been busy enjoying the fall weather and pretty views

We had a picnic at a beautiful park with this spectacular view (and I snuck in a few  pieces of ham – yum)…

flag rock - 10-21 - picnic with Scout

But, last evening I roamed around our property and found something swell to roll around in – it made me feel pretty good until I returned home and everyone said I was stinky.  As a result, I was escorted into the bathroom, where I didn’t really want to go, and lifted into the tub.

I wasn’t sure what to expect and I was all set not to like it – but, the water was nice and warm and the rubdown gentle, so I kind of liked it…

Plus, everyone said I was a good boy.  Well – everyone except Nutmeg.

Apres bath, though, was the best part of all.

Me, continuing to put up with getting dry.  More fun!

Plus all dry and still playing – the best!!!!

Extra Bonus: I smell like Sweet Pea and Violet, which the folks around here seem to appreciate. 

Until next time,





Hello Fall!

We can’t believe we are heading into our fourth season here at 50 Shades of Green Acres.  Lots of leaves have been falling and we are beginning to be able to see the road at the bottom of the hill.  So – now we can tell when it’s the mail carrier or a neighbor just passing by.   We like to keep up with the flow of traffic. 

In addition to the falling leaves, we have falling temperatures which bring with them some beautiful colors.

Someone will be fishing from this pond in a few days!

Wherever you are, we hope you are enjoying your fall, too!!

Man Cleans Garage – Both Stalls Open

An Appalachian man cleaned and organized his garage and is now able to park two vehicles inside.  “I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me,” said one bystander, “but it is absolutely true and a beautiful thing to behold.”  Though some may doubt the veracity of this breaking story, proof can be found in the unphotoshopped picture below.
