TGIF

Thank goodness it's Friday! I think sometimes I'm on a treadmill, and I so love taking the time to write and visit with my friends in blogger land! So here goes. I'm linking into Willy Nilly Friday 5, and Friday Fragments. Thanks for hosting, ladies!



This first one was sent to me by a friend who found this flirtations male turkey out in her backyard. Doesn't he look like something out of a Thanksgiving poster?


2. This is this week's edition of my friends' Facebook postings. It's for all the teachers out there in Blogger Land.

3. Just what do you do when you have a big bovine like this standing in your way on the road? Honk the horn? Wave at her out the window? She finally got tired of looking at us in our red car, and moved out of the way.

4. We jumped at the chance to go up in the plane with our friends Henry and Coleen. Henry is a wonderful pilot, and here's a picture of the plane.


 And these were some of hubby's shots from the air of the bluebonnets in the fields below.





5. And how is the house sale going? Well I am happy to say that the house sold in 5 days...FIVE days! We are happy with the price, and we have arranged with the buyers to lease back from them until our new house is finished. Keep your fingers crossed that everything progresses as it should. I'll keep you posted!

Have a wonderful weekend,
Linda Kay

Congratulations on the sale of your house so quickly, that's wonderful! Thoroughly enjoyed your Friday-Five today. That cow was a hoot and I'm glad she moved out of the way eventually.

That's the biggest fattest turkey I ever saw. It must be dangerous for cows to be in the road - both for them and the cars. Congrats on your fast house sale and the smart lease-back provision! That's great! Have a lovely weekend. :)

I've been up in a small plane a few times. It's definitely a different flying experience.

Love the cartoon. :-)

Hannah said...

Fun photos, Linda, the turkey is so fantastic, all spread out, with so many layers. I've experienced some cow curiosity before, really intense. The airplane ride must have been exciting, and congratulations on selling your house so fast, and having great buyers as well! Happy moving!

Lea said...

I love the views from the airplane!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Super news about the house sale- congrats! Great views from the plane..something I will never again see as I don't plan to ever leave the ground again..well until I die and then I guess I will be under it. I hope your move is as smooth as the sale!

Lisa from @intotheglade said...

Congratulations on selling your house, that's wonderful. I love the teacher drawing, I am going to show my daughter who is training to be one! Oooo - for the flying! I'm too scared I'm afraid, I would have to decline, but your husband got some great pictures. Have a lovely weekend x

Ida said...

My that turkey is strutting his stuff.
Funny cartoon.
Not much you can do but wait for them to move.
Glad you enjoyed the plane ride, I've always been afraid to go up in a small plane (I don't even like big ones that much.)
Congrats of the sale of the house.

Linda W. said...

How fun you got to go flying! My dad is a pilot and I grew up flying in small planes. I loved it - and still do!

Jeanne said...

Hi Linda Kat, You had quite a few adventures. Loved the teacher joke. Our daughter is a HS math teacher. She could identify with the reluctant teacher. HA!

Cows are always fenced here. Once in awhile one gets loose. My BIL hit one. It rolled his van but he wasn't hurt.Yikes.

Wow, a ride in an airplane is
awesome. I love the bluebells in TX.

Have a great weekend,
Hugs,
Jeanne

Jeanne said...

Oops a typo. Sorry Linda Kay.
