Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog. It's always so nice to meet new bloggers.

That walnut tree is very valuable. If it ever needs to get chopped down, make sure you call a tree expert first....you might get offered a lot of money for the wood. I had one many years ago and was offered $1,000 to chop it down and take the wood.

That poor doggy must have been in fear of his life!!!

I am currently resisting the Christmas music as the moment so that I can enjoy it all the more in December!!

Merrie said...

Poor Zoe! She looks like she is shaking in her boots...

lmerie said...

The sky is falling, the sky is falling!

Heth said...

Poor poor Zoe. It's dangerous business walking out the front door!

Chatty Kelly said...

Gracious - poor Zoe. And I think if it hit you, you'd at least get a concussion yourself. :)

Looking forward to tomorrow!!!!

The Patterson 5 said...

That is huge! Is that from your first to drop her leaves tree in your back yard tree!

sara said...

I have never seen a walnut on the tree and had no idea that is what they look like!!! Wow, that really could take Zoe out or give you a big knot on your head!

Hey, how did you like my Ken Lee post?

Robin Lambright said...

Thanks for the mention yesterday! As soon as my head clears I'll put a post together about the perils of my time behind the waffle house counter.

Mocha with Linda said...

Okay, that looks like a pear! Poor Zoe!

Fran said...

The look on Zoe's face says it all...I think she's ticked.

Pam from alertandorientedx4 said...

See..you could be in a musical--you broke out in spontaneous song! LOL! Zoe looks like she's seeing a big green alien, even tho' I've heard dogs are color blind. Maybe she's afraid she's about to be beamed up?

Patrice said...

We have those terrible trees in our yard too!! I am scared that Higgins is going to go to an early grave if he does not watch himself!!

One day driving into the drive way my truck was hit by one of those and I would of thought we were hit by a small bomb!!

Take care Zoe, be careful!!

April in CT said...

Tell poor Zoe she's welcome to come visit here so she doesn't get her cute little noggin knocked off. lol

Those things are HUGE! I know how dangerous the acorns in our yard are when they rain down their attack on our heads.

Susanne said...

I don't blame Zoe for looking a tad nervous. That thing is huge! It'd be embarassing to tell your doggie friends that a walnut took you out.

Linda said...

Poor Zoe! It's almost as big as she is! She needs a little crash helmet.

Karen said...

Wow, that could hurt such a little guy.

Debbie said...

We need to find a hard hat for Zoe! That thing is as big as her head!!

samurai said...

My dad used to have a Black Walnut tree too. He once told me one bounced off the top of his head while he was mowing the grass! ouch. You could also hear them bounce on the roof from time to time.

Poor Zoe!

Melanie @ This Ain't New York said...

Be careful. Those walnuts have been known to kill people.

Greg C said...

So that's what walnuts look like before you kill them. Interesting.

Edie said...

GET IT ZOIE! GET IT!
I was going to suggest that you get Zoie a helmet like bike riders wear but I see others beat me to it.

When I first saw the picture I thought it was a tennis ball. No wonder they clogged up the sink.

My post about the wonderful work experience is up. Just keep picturing a dear in the headlights.

Becky said...

Run Zoe Run...stay away from that tree!!! Yowzah and all that. Old walnut trees are protected in our town... glad I don't have one ;-)

Laurie Ann said...

Poor Zoe! Hope she hasn't been konked on the head by one of those "coconuts"!

Jamie Harper said...

Thank you for your comment on my blog and for praying for my granny. Cute tiny dog! :)

CrackerJacks said...

Oh my gosh! Either that is a really bug walnut or a tiny pup! Great shot!

skoots1mom said...

that's as big as her poor little head...hope she didn't get bopped in the head.
I have acorns falling from my oak tree that are big, too, but the squirrels are snatchin' them up for the winter.
eager to hear about the 70s songs.

Melinda said...

That poor thing! Did it actually hit her? She looks a bit miffed.

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of cyberspace...it's always nice to see new faces around the 'hood. :o)

Blessings,
Melinda

Joanna said...

I think she's giving you the stink eye. Not too happy is she?

Marina said...

poor little zoe "( that is one BIG walnut!! good picture, amiga marina

Paula (SweetPea) said...

Oh my WORD. That is a humongous walnut. Talk about life threatening...most definitely for little Zoe but it could also do some damage on our noggins. :-)

Nadine said...

Oh no that thing is huge. The poor little pup - I hope he didn't get bonked on the head.

Shabby Olde Potting Shed said...

Hi. Just found your blog tonight via Laurie Ann. I can't help giggling over the truth of the matter... those walnuts are DANGEROUS! We have one on the edge of our back pasture and when I ride our fourwheeler by there, I make SURE I don't get beneath it! Hail, would feel "good" compared to getting beaten in the melon by one of those things!
Protect that little furbaby of yours!
Nice meetin you!
Lea
<*)))><
I love your banner with the cappachino wide open! Can I have a cup-a-that? LOL

PJ said...

Aye!! "It's a beautiful morning!" Cute little Zoe!

Serendipity said...

Zoe is so adorable!

jennifer@love,laughter,and lyrics said...

Cathy Davis said...

I giggle b/c my little precious 4 legged baby looks at me like that when I try to put clothes on her! Why they wanna make such cute clothes for dogs when dogs don't really wanna wear 'em??
