"Friday Shoot-Out"........I've been waiting for this all week. I never leave home without my camera. While I'm out delivering my Brown Bag Lunches, running a pup to the vet, running around for a catering job or just out and about if I see something really interesting, I'm compelled to stop and take a snapshot. Of course Prince doesn't like it when I make U-Turns (oops) and brake really hard, but you gotta have priorities, right?
This week, we all agreed that the subject would be houses in and around our hometowns. These are the houses that caught my fancy...........the old and the new, the majestic and the simple, the beautifully manicured and the not so manicured.
Newnan has many historic, Victorian, Tudor, and simple style homes as we are know as the City Of Homes. I love the front porches, the verandas, the widow walks and the georgeous gingerbread trim. I love the beautiful oak trees, magnolias, the spanish moss and all of the beautiful dogwoods and redbuds that are turning green out in front of these beautiful houses.
I can't wait to see everyone elses Friday Shoot-Out's of homes. Patty, Loida, Barry, GingerV, Butler and Bagman (one of whom is my top, top secret boyfriend though I'm not entirely sure which one....depends on the day) and I think that Audrey is throwing her hat into the ring this week. If I left anyone's name out I apologize, it wasn't intentional. Please, we'd all like to encourage ALL of you to participate in our Shoot-Outs. I do believe that Mr. Barry has chosen cemetaries for next week so a haunting we will go. I know that all of you have beauty in your own towns and what better way to showcase it than in our Shoot Outs (and no, no guns or rifles were used in the process so no need to notify the ATF, lol)? Please join us next week if you didn't get in on the fun this week.
Please have a little look-see with me as we look at just a few of the beautiful homes that Newnan has to offer. There's a little something for everyone here............
Awesome right? What a beautiful place I live in!!
I'd like to thank all of you so very much for the feel better wishes that you left me. It made me feel so warm inside and so special that you were all so kind enough to take the time to make a comment wishing me well and assuring me that I am in your prayer's. People like you restore my faith in humanity. I don't know where any of us would be without our friends and I've met the kindest, warmest people since I've been blogging, each so very special in your own way. I'm feeling a little better this morning....just pretty swollen and awfully sore but I think that it could be much worse and I'm so thankful that I will make a full recovery. God answer's prayers and that much I know is true and real.

Where I come from, lot's of front porch pickin
Where I come from, it's tryin to make a livin
And workin hard to get to Heaven, where I come from"********
