Fergie all decked up

This darling little mutt (Fergie) makes me laugh, she is all love. Here after the makeup, we had to lure her with one of her toy bottles to stand still... that's why the heart felt longing in her big brown eyes.
Who can resist such soulful eyes, she's one hugable dog... I miss* her.* Don't worry, she is still alive and kicking... and from what I hear happily pregnant too. We had to give her away, so many things were happening (back home) and there was nobody to take care of her.

A dog is not 'almost human' and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

The Windmills Welcome...

The windmills near home... resembling sentinels that loom protectively in the distance along with those rolling hills.

A light wind swept over the corn, and all nature laughed in the sunshine.

Kids and summer...

Here you see a typical temple pond where a few kids are playing and trying to beat the summer heat in Kanyakumari (my hometown).
Looks like they caught something in their cloth net... kids and summer are an exciting combination, and if you happen to grow up in the countryside, you can bet nothing could be more exhilarating.
A new found blogger buddy - Meri, who is into interior designing and the like did a post on Outdoor Spaces and I sent her these pictures of a typical Indian-village-outdoorsy shot, you can check them out at her blog here.

When I was a little kid, of course, I was brown all summer. That's because I was free as a bird- nothing to do but catch bugs all day.

God's cotton candy...

These pictures were taken when I was on my way to Bombay to attend Tina's (my cousin) wedding...
I especially love this picture below, reminds me of the 'care bears'... those distinct swirls of curly cloud look like God's own cotton candy.

Those clouds are angels' robes.
