A Really Good Fence . . .


this past weekend

we drove north to have a fresh fish dinner

we knew the fishery was closing for the season

but we thought that we would luck out and it would still be open on saturday eve

we were wrong


Labor Day Weekend




plan two

a drive to


a beautuful small village

a bit north of us on the western shores of

Lake Michigan

my goal

white picket fences

guess who spotted this fence first

little ole' me

I spotted it

but mister irish

saw more of it than I did

he drove all around the block

so I could get plenty of pictures of this

Really Good Fence


hundreds of visitors in this little village

we ate at a favorite restaurant with all of the hundreds

grin grin

dinner was a huge juicy burger

my oh my



a bit of a sad note


will be back in surgery again monday morn

we are concerned

hoping for the best

thank you for thinking about her


Love ~ Lynne

i hope snickers will be ok, i know how worrisome that can be :( bummer on the restaurant closed but looks like you found a great alternative...i love burgers and i also love the shadows in your last photo!

HI Lynne!
We used to have a big long white picket fence at our cottage...we painted it for many winter...our year-round neighbour across the street, decided to push all the snow from his circular drive, across the street to ours! Needless to say, the 70 year old fence, buckled under the pressure! Boyfriend took it apart, picket by picket, dragged it to the beach, and we had one hell of a bonfire! It took a few months, but I designed a new fence, and our handyman brought my vision to life! We are no longer the owners of a cute white picket more painting! Just a lovely natural picket fence!
Thinking of Snickers...♥️
Linda :o)

White pickets are my favorite...and a juicy burger is always a great choice. I am sorry to hear about sweet Snickers. Keep us updated please. Sending good thoughts your way for a positive outcome. xo

Thinking all the best thoughts for sweet Snickers.

Great fence shots. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

Well bummer about the Fish place being closed but hooray for spotting the wonderful white picket fencing.

Will be praying for your Snickers as I know you will for our Snickers.

Oh Lynne .... first of all and most importantly, give Snickers ears a rub from me and I hope all is well on Monday.
I love picket fences .... so USA !!!! We do have them here but not so many as you..... I never realised how much I liked fences until I read your blog !!!!!! XXXX

I hope Snickers is going to be OK. What an adorable little face. It's nice to have a fence spotter to help scope out photo ops. This is a really good fence!

Oh dear, hope Snickers is okay.

How fun to have a partner is search of a good fence! Great job!

Poor little Snickers <3

Did you eat at the Brown Bear? I was in Pentwater on Tuesday and went to the Antique store, a lot of other things were already closed.

All the best to you and Snickers...

Lynne, I love snickers, why is he having an operation?
Mr. Bennie has to get a bump on his beautiful fluffy Hinney.
I don't want to do it. They also want $800 to remove it.
They have to put him under also, my daughter says it's dangerous.

Indeed, that’s a really good fence! It’s something you’d see in older homes, but it really gives you a comforting feeling. Looking at these pictures, it’s as if I’m back at my parents’ old house. On the other hand, I hope all goes well with Snickers. She seems like a really nice friend.

"Oh, that is a GORGEOUS example of the quintessential white picket fence. I don't know what it is about the white picket style that is so appealing, but it just adds so much to the attractiveness of a home.

How frightening for you to have your pup in surgery. We will all keep you in our thoughts and prayers. Best Wishes!"
