Fishhawk Lake Real Estate--This is what I love about new commentors! When I am going back over my comments on a post that I've written, I usually try to go to the commentor's own blog to respond "in kind".

Speechless Sunday-Eagle's Flight This handsome beauty was sitting high up in a scraggly old tree looking for salmon spawning through Fishhawk Creek, east of Fishhawk Lake on a ranch. I snuck up on him in a field while he sat and then as I got almost straight underneath him, he took off.  I happen...

A Year Ago Today...I am thankful for a Miracle! When we brought our Golden Retriever pup home, Kasa had diarrhea.   Okay, some pups do. And she was round and sweet and loved being active in the beginning, so we didn't worry.   BUT, for over a year we battled this and her throwing up along with th...

I was reading my latest Food & Wine magazine and there is a nice piece on an interview done with Ted Allen, a well-known foodie/chef on television and is the current host of Chopped.  Ted had some opinions on bringing wine to special occasions in the homes of your friends and family.

Fishhawk Lake Wildlife-Lone Heron on a Dock-Speechless Sunday I couldn't decide which one, so I included both. One is in black and white. He looked so lonely.  I never see Great Blue Herons in pairs. Maybe that's why I think he looks lonely. Or pensive.  My favorite bird.  Ever since the dock was...

  Just in a mood to show off "real estate"  in the country. This barn is on Pebble Creek Road in Vernonia Oregon.         This farm is located on Fishhawk Road and Highway 202 Birkenfeld OR.      This old beauty no longer stands after the most severe winter in Oregon history in 2008. It was locat...

I"ll bet you thought that this was a post about weddings, right? Well, in a WAY it IS A MARRIAGE... Many listings that I've had for awhile (think older type babe, if you will) have had many suitors, but no one's made a proposal for one reason or another.  They weren't cute enough. They weren't yo...
