yesterday was a photo shoot kind of a day...

Craig had the day off and we took a bit of a drive after we tied up the tomatoes and got the mower back from the neighbor...
it wouldn't idle down for me, so he fixed it...

we left with camera in hand to get some shots...
I have started a group on facebook for our town and my photos...

so I can share what I see with others...
especially those who were born and raised here, but now live somewhere else...

I shoot the town and the surrounding area...
when we go on our drives and the photos have just been piling up...

and the town and area are always changing...
from storms, fire and just tearing things down to make way for new things...
the response has been awesome and people have been really nice about it...
so, I have another venue to share my images...

after lunch, we grabbed armfuls of furr and headed out on the deck...

5 little babies looking for new homes...

it took longer to do the photo shoot and editing than it did to find homes...
seriously, in less than 5 minutes they were spoken for...
just by posting them on facebook...
and I found homes for 2 more here...
and some of the newest babies are spoken for, too...
I was so busy answering PMs and making arrangements to get them to where they need to go...
Craig grabbed the pet taxi and 2 were out the door heading for Charleston before I could get the photos pulled off of the sites...
many more were interested, too...
and I either knew these people who knew someone who did, so checking them out was not a big thing at all...
good homes for all of them...
and I didn't ask for a fee, they were free to the right homes...
that's only a good idea if you know the people...
so I think from now on I will post a rehoming fee, a small one, like $20 or so...
so only those who are serious about adopting and caring for a baby will respond...
the shelters are charging a fee of at least $65 now for cats...
that's why they are full to the brim...
I do tell the new parents that they have to vet them...
and no one has a problem with that, they have their own vets and like to take them in anyway when they get a new one...
so it was a win/win day for the babies...
didn't get much else done around here, but that's ok...
have good days!

Showing those kittens makes it too tempting for others to not want one. LOL. Tete, you are a smart girl. I love all the picture you posted. You could be making cards or calendars. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

Cool idea. I just don't like Facebook.

Used to belong to a "City Photo Daily" kind of a blog. People from all over the world, would post a daily pic of their own town/city. That was cool, long time ago.
