Kick the Bucket

It's time for Fun Friday in our group, Blogging For Fun. We are doing an A to Z challenge. This week, we are working on the letter K.
K is for kick the bucket
Don't be alarmed guys, this post isn't at all depressing... contrary! On our drive home from Arizona, we came across a cemetery. It was lovely like most cemeteries. I do not know why, but I like walking in cemeteries, so peaceful, so serene. The neglected look of the garden appeals to me. Anyway, As Doods and I were walking, we came across a tombstone that has a cowboy boot hanging beside it . Doods smiled, but I ended up gigling. The guy.. er.. kicked the bucket all right!




Then I saw this lovely weather-beaten truck parked beside this huge colorful tree, simply picturesque!  I took some shots from behind then continued with my exploration of the garden. When I walked past the truck, I saw that it was not empty. Inside sat an old lady that was gazing lovingly at a tombstone. I would love to be able to send her this photo someday.


It was late afternoon and quite windy. Whenever the wind blows, it showers me with leaves and I... snap!


A huge surge!  Woohoo... snap-snap!

  4. These pictures are so cute. The boots gave me goosebumps hahahaha

    I remember seeing your photo of the leaf in one of your albums, and every time I see leaves in the air - reminds me of you ! Same as the picture of the bench covered with ice - they made me smile and think about you.

  10. In old western movies I've heard the line, "He died with his boots on". Meaning something bad happened. Maybe this cowboy went peacefully with his boots beside the bed. OK, this is getting creepy.

    Love the shots of the leaves in the air, that's hard to catch. Great work Tes, they turned out beautifully.
