Tuesdays Around Newnan - City Of Homes

****Please click on "The Daily Puppy"******

Small towns always wake at dawn.
Because they sleep so well at night,
Lullabied by nightingales,
Then waked by roosters at first light.

No matter where one is.....or isn't,
There's lots of room to spare,
And of the people who are near,
Most likely someone cares,

I live in the friendliest town in the Southern Arc I do believe. I want to share a few things that made me smile this week while I was out and about in my beautiful hometown of Newnan, Georgia..........

One of our many picturesque streets in town, Wesley Street. The movie October Road was filmed here.......


This is Lil Mama and Killer who come to our church every Sunday morning and wait patiently outside to greet everyone. They are our most faithful members..........


Pretty Nina who wandered over to show Prince and I her copy of Amelia Bedelia.......


I love this little shop nestled in the woods..........


I love this porch out front at 10 East Washington. Always wonderful food prepared lovingly by Chef George............


A pretty purple shamrock I spied over by Dr. Pat Yancy's office.........


I snapped this bee on a pretty flower in my yard. I'm happy to see the bees around. 1 in every 3 bites of food we eat depend on our bees pollenating..........


Sweet little girls playing with umbrella's Sunday afternoon on Court Square........


OH NO!!!! Honk y'all, it's Mary's birthday!! I saw this and it made me laugh. I'm sooo gonna do this on my birthday this year (okay but it's not my 60th yet)........


My favorite picture this week. Attacked by puppy love!! I adore my all of my animal's. They bring me so much joy and unconditional love.............


Come on down to visit with us in Newnan. We'll show you around and sit on pretty front porches with nice tall glasses of sweet tea or Mint Juleps . We'll wander around Court Square in the evenings and visit with friendly people who are waiting to meet you.

No matter where you live, please support your local Humane Society. They need you :)

  8. Hi there! I found you through Mildred @ Nalley Valley. Saw your comment about the rabbits eating your balloon flower and wanted to share a tip for you from a previous post at my blog, here >>> http://camelliacottagediary.blogspot.com/2009/04/bunny-wars-soft-and-easy.html

    And after reading your post, I also wanted to tell you that last year we adopted a sweet cat from the Newnan/Coweta Humane Society at an adoption day at the Pet Smart off of I-85. He was such a sweetie, but didn't fit well with our family, so I found a new loving home for him with a young couple with a young child, and a horse farm where he could get out and roam a bit - something he couldn't do here. Last I heard from his new owners, he was doing very well.

    Blessings, Becky

  12. Whew. Thank goodness the weekend is over. I never get to enjoy events until I upload my photos.

    Looks like you had a great week last week. I love the little girls with the umbrella. The old lady made it special.

    You and doggies are super.

    Great photos, all.

    I have not taken one water photo. That is sad, but today I take no photos!

    Looks we are getting more shooters. I will try and work on the "info" site this afternoon, and list the shooters that are still participating.

    Good to know that Loida is settling in. Can't wait until she returns.

    Have a good Tuesday. it is Tuesday, isn't it?

  25. Ah, I just love your photos of Newnan!! ;) Esp loved the poem by G. Ellis at the beginning of your post -- it's so true. Loved the final pic of you with your pupsters, they are the BEST, aren't they?!

    Oh, and I'm thinking of leasing my mother out to any that need her help, since she's so industrious and so many people are asking about her, lol....

    Hope you both had a LOVELY weekend, and a fantastic week to come.
