A MAN , HIS GRANDSON, AND DOG ALL ON OUTSIDE WEDNESDAY!!!

Originally posted August of 2009, I wanted to share how well Mr. P was doing. Bailey is now 11 and enjoyed viewing some of the good times spent with his Papa on Little John. Little John is now gone, Mr. P no longer gets on tractors, but our memories still live on.
I'm linking up with Chari for "Sunday Favorites". Chari thank you for hosting each week, it gives us a chance to go back through our archives and relive happier times. Lots of memories are stirred, lots of laughter in the house along with big smiles and more pictures to take to share another time.

Welcome to another Outdoor Wednesday Event. Hosted by our Susan from http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com This is a day we all get to show off our outdoor beauty. So, let's get going..


Many of you know around here we never know what's going to take place. I'm so thankful for the camera to take pictures of all the good times that are occurring. This is "not" a repeat of last weeks Outdoor Wednesday. It wasn't planned, just sort of happened. Boy, am I glad it did.
A few years back this is how it looked when Bailey wanted to go for a ride on his Papa's tractor. I would take him in hand and walk him down and lift him up. Now... Bill reaches down to take Bailey's hand. And Bailey climbs up on his own.
Buckle up....
Now, Papa it's your turn.. buckle up!!
Good job Papa!!



Looks like everyone is checking gauges. lol
Something sure made Mr. P smile.. lol
Must have been down right funny. :-))
Even Miss Scooter loves going for a ride on Little John.
That's my girl. Usually she's a bit camera shy. I'm so glad she sat still long enough for me to get this picture.
They were so generous to stop long enough for me take the pictures. Look at those smiles. They knew it was going on the blog. lol
Bailey told his PaPa it was time to go.
Hang on folks! We're off!! lol



I hope you enjoyed another day with Mr. P and his tractor. This time with Bailey and Miss Scooter. I'm always so thankful for each good day we have like this one. A man, his grandson and his faithful companion all wrapped up in one package. What more could a man ask for? Days like this are priceless.
Thanks for swinging by and saying hello. We always love when you come for a visit. Don't forget to swing by Susan's at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/ for a full list of participants. You're in for a treat. ... hugs ~lynne~

Hi Lynne - Thanks for visiting my OW - I should clear up that my iris pics are from the spring - my yard right now looks like the Sahara - dry and ugly brown!!

I love your OW post with all your family - your "men" are so handsome - gotta love it - my girl still hasn't learned that all her silly faces will more than likely end up on my blog!

I loved all your goodies you received from "Texas Jessica" - you really were a winner on that one -

Have a Happy Hump Day -

Mary said...

How fun to see the two of them out for a ride...and Miss Scooter to boot! I loved the photo with the big smiles! Our families do play to the blog, don't they? Bailey is so big! I love seeing pics of him since he is the same age as my grandson! What a lovely day for everyone! Happy weekend...hugs...Debbie

Ah yes, men boys and tractors - - - what a combination. And when the man is a grandpa, well even better.

My BIL had a huge John Deere like that for a while and once I drove it around the lot in front of the barn - I found it great fun.

I notice your post has two different sizes of fonts. For more than a year after I began playing Sunday Favorites my reposts did this all the time - - - I HATED it and it drove me nuts. Then one day I noticed that if I clicked on the html tab at the top of the posting box, and if I scanned down through all the "gibberish" I could find places that said things like "font size 130%. Now I scan down through the html of ALL my reposts and make sure all those font sizes are the same - - - 130% makes really large font so I always set all mine to 100%.

You can do this even now by going to your dashboard, finding this post on the top of the list, clicking edit and proceeding from there.

Good luck!

Oh Lynne, I am so glad you have these priceless photos, to share with us but mainly to keep your sweet memories alive! I hope this is a good day for you and Mr. P. XOXO, Pinky PS, your grandson is handsome, and I bet REALLY handsome by now:):)

HI Girlfriend...

Ahhh...what sweet and precious memories you caught on film (or should I say computer? hehe!) Girlfriend, I loved looking through your photos of Bill and Bailey! I'm sure that Bailey had the time of his life...riding in Grandpa's tractor! What little boy wouldn't love doing that? About four years ago, Grandpa Russ took a few of the grandkids for a ride on his tractor and I have photos of that as well! You should have seen the smiles on those kiddos! We have sold the tractor since then as well. Hmmm...there have been a few times since then that we wished we still had it.

Well dear friend, thank you so much for joining in with Sunday Favorites this week! I'm so sorry that I am just now getting by...it's just been busy here! I hope that my note is finding you all doing well!

Love you sweet friend!
Chari
