Good Morning,
And welcome to Wheely Wednesday. It seems as if we have been trying to upload our pictures for hours. Google is not cooperating with us today.

Java entered a contest over at Orvis. If you feel so inclined, please go over and vote for him. Just click on his picture for the link. There is a charge for voting - $1.00 per vote, but Orvis will match your vote dollar for dollar. When you donate, you'll help save dogs' lives by funding important research through the Canine Cancer Campaign.

As many of you know last week,
Mom was involved in helping
our local Sylvatus Ruritan Club
with their Flea Market.
She sells things so she can
afford to buy things.
She found this wonderful
iron Scottie dog
that we will be using
for a boot scrape.
When we first saw it,
we thought it was a really tall Scottie,
but then she explained to us
that about 5 inches of it's legs
will be buried in the ground.

Doesn't this figurine
remind you of Hamish?
When Mom saw it,
along with it's battle scars,
it spoke of wisdom to her.

M0m is always on the lookout
for a little turquoise -
the color, not the stone.
She forgot her hat when she left
to go to the Flea Market,
so as soon as she saw this
beautiful umbrella,
she knew she needed it
to shade her from the sun.
Plus it helped Dad
locate her in the crowd.
(She wanted us to pose with it,
but we are afraid of umbrellas -
we'd rather get wet than
walk under one)
Java needed a new food bowl
(well not yet, but Mom breaks one
about every 3 months)
so she found this beautiful
vintage turquoise bowl for him.
We don't know why she got the crock.
We suppose it's turquoise and chipped
and called out to her.

Guess what came up in our garden,
all by itself!
We watched the plant to see what
it would be.
We knew it was either
a cucumber, squash, watermelon or cantaloupe.
Well the fruit got large enough to identify
and then large e
nough to harvest.

And is it ever delicious.
We gobbled it down so fast
that Mom could hardly get
our picture.
And guess what?
She picked another one yesterday.
We hope we can convince her
to cut it this morning.

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

Glad to hear I'm not the only one that breaks the dog bowls. The dogs haven't broken any, I've dropped three of them.

That's so cool that you grew a cantaloupe! Mom is thinking she wants to try that for next year!

Maggie and Mitch

Cassie said...

Hi Lynn! What a flea market find!

I HATE cantaloupe...reminds me of ether, so my pooches don't know what it tastes like.
Happy Wednesday!

Inky and Molly said...

Man, you have all sorts of treasures in your garden. We'd like a bit of that fruit, thank you very much..

Benson and Lily said...

SHE stepped in my din-din bowl tonight. I thought for a minute SHE and the bowlie were goners. There was some odd ballet like moves, kinda like the Hippo's in Fantasia?, and some clanging of the bowlie around the kitchen cupboard doors, then all settled back in place. Surprisingly all in one piece. SHE thinks she's pulled a piece of ham or something like that. The melon looks extra yummy. It's a fave of ours.

Mango said...

Yummers. That is better even than wally melon.


Poopsie aka Blue said...

I love rummaging for finds @ house sales or in charity shops - what do they say one woman's rubbish is another's gold!

No worries about not participating TCT today - Granny is much more important - hope her appointment goes well.

Love, and pats & pets

Clive said...

Great finds! That umbrella is lovely!

Impressed with that cantulope growing in your garden! We couldn't even get our tomatoes to go red!

lots of woofs

HI Lynn,
Love the umbrella and the bowls!
Turquoise is my number one favorite
Tom went to work today. I thought he should stay home one more day.
He did not!! If he is O. K. tonight I will blog. I still need his help to put pictures on the blog.
Love you all, Fern

Yummy melon, it certainly looked most delicious. Have a great weekend.

Remember to save seeds from the cantaloupe, so you can plant them next year and send me some so I can grow some.. That sounds good to me. How does that sound to you?
Love ya, Fern

SEDONA said...

Yummy 'lopes! I love 'em, too!
And my human loves the color turquoise, too. Nice finds at the flea market! Hope she didn't get any real fleas, tho'!
Your pal,

Jake and Fergi are SLOW, is what Jake and Fergi are! We had this post sitting down there waiting for a comment for two days, and we just now found it! Well. Better late than never! We were looking forward to seein' your Flea Market finds, and you didn't disappoint us! We're not sure which'd be more fun... to eat cannalope with you, or to tag along to the shops and markets.

Hope about both?
