  He’s Not the Highly Polished Type at the Car Shows-Just Very Creative   For those of you who know me, you know I’m an admirer of the different, the odd, and the highly creative.

In this case, we were at the Shops at Wiregrass Car Show in Wesley Chapel and we saw this truck - you just have to love the way this guy handles the competition of all those highly-polished, chrome enriched, fancy finned cars around him. There's even a chicken roosting on the cab. Doesn't he look like the creative type? He was having fun, watching everyone else admire his vehicle. He has a great sense of humor but you already know that. If only we could all do our own thing, we would be very successful in this world. Or we would at least have lots of fun. Stand Out: ...

He's So Proud-A Lighter Note to End a Solemn Weekend   I wanted to post this sweet picture to end this very solemn Veteran's Day Weekend on a lighter note. This cute little pooch was seen at The Shops of Wiregrass at their Dogtoberfest costume contest.  I don’t know if he won; there were so many contestants that we couldn’t stay till the end; but he deserved to. (Judy Kincaid in comments said he won the Grand Champion Award.) Doesn’t he just look so proud?

We visited the Farmers Market at the Shops at Wiregrass in Wesley Chapel today. It was so very hot: we almost melted. But we took a look around and took some pictures, visited with Labrador Retriever Rescue, met some crazy looking peppers, spent cool down time in Pottery Barn, and found our favorite local honey. I wanted to take these guys home. I It was a great day all around. Just as we pulled into our driveway, a lively thunderstorm broke and cooled things down a bit. Can you tell which picture is the Pottery Barn?
