I'm Home Again--Woohoo!

I’m home. Oh, yeah, and I put the "followme" thingy on my blog. So go ahead. Follow me! I dare you! Your horizons will be expanded (not THOSE horizons, y'all!) and your mind will be opened to all the lovely crooks and crannies of my life. (Not to mention the mud puddles, oil rigs, and everyday boring crap of my life.)

Anyway, back to the "I'm home" part. We had a lovely time in Pennsylvania, and it was great to see ThatManILove. I took over 300 pictures, but I won’t bore you with all of them.

Just some of them.
Over a protractedly long period of time.
Do the math.

Check out the reflections of the trees in the water. Absolutely beautiful. Hope y'all can see them. The leaves were just beginning to turn in Pennsyvania, and the colors were gorgeous.
Speaking of leaves (she’s going to freakin’ kill me for doing this, but She with the camera wins!), here’s Suzan… doesn't she make a twisted, wickedly devilish Eve?

We had lots of fun, and visited several sites, one being Falling Water, the Kaufman house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Pictures are verboten, but I took some of the grounds.
Awesome. MLH loves Frank Lloyd Wright designs.

Here's a pix of That Man I Love withSuzan. This was after she did the fig leaf thing. He's looking like he has that Enzyte smile, isn't he? Makes ya wonder, doesn't it? Okay, he's going to kill me now, too.

Anyway, have to go rescue Zack and Zanna from the kennel. And tonight? I catch up on all your blogs. Are you ready???

I LOVE Frank Lloyd Wright. We toured the Darwin Martin house compound, designed by Wright for his personal friend Darwin Martin, in Buffalo New York, just 2 weeks ago! It was great! I have a goal to see all of them in this life....

Whenever I hear the name Frank Lloyd Wright, I think of concrete houses, and things that are very "odd".

Didn't he die really poor because of the fact he took for EVER to finish stuff?

Janie said...

Doozie - I don't know about that, at all, and even googled it. He was paid an architect's fee, he really didn't do the subcontracting like you see today.

Fallingwater actually revitalized his career and he went on to build 200 properties after that. He was 67 when he build Fallingwater.

LOVE your photos!!! So glad you had a great trip and I would DIE to see Falling Waters! FLW is my all time favorite architect. My father and brother are both architects though, so I guess that makes FLW my third favorite. ;-)

Welcome home! :-)

Sounds like you had a great trip...but as a worrying mom, I'm always glad to see the "chicks" back home...safe and sound.

It will be interesting to hear if you ever make personal contact with Kelly Girl. She has intrigued me...(if you haven't figured it out, she's in management at Red Lobster...according to the info I got)

Janie said...

Gwynne - I love the FLW designs as well! And thanks for the welcome home!

Jill - no problem, chica! Glad to hear from you.

Inspired - I'm going to hook up with Kelly, trying to coordinate schedules.
