Oh those lazy crazy Sadie days of winter…

Ms Sadie loves it outside but she has one little problem.

She hates the cold.

Well, not hates…but does not tolerate it.

She vibrates…not tolerates.  😆


There is snow on the ground

True story (and very much like her hu-mom)

So…she wiles away the hoursDSC_6486

Snow…ahhhhh schweeeeet, schweet, schnow!DSC_0193

Or is it the squirrel?DSC_5464

Hang on…maybe she’s dreaming of summer.
After all, it’s been a cold, snow-less winter

No, wait!  It’s gotta be the bird!
Her buddy Noodles may fly by any minute!

Anything Mom…Anything.  As long as we do it together!

Hi everyone! Welcome to 50 Shades of Gray Hair. 50 Shades is my blog of life over the hill, where each day is full of delicious opportunities to earn another gray hair. I stopped declaring war on the gray when I began this blog years ago. Instead, I embrace and celebrate them along with whatever life decides to throw my way, with (sarcasm forward) humor and an optimistic eye to the future. I think. I hope? I don't know. At any rate...it's real, it's honest, it's full of 4 letter words, and it's me...on a platter. I sincerely welcome you all to my porch....♥♥Rhonda

  1. Sadie has such a sweet face and the black and white is a gorgeous photo of her. She appears to be a very smart dog. Just wondering what got you interested in pit bulls. They make such great pets when socialized and treated with kindness. Why or why do dogs love snow. I don’t get snow where I live (once in a blue moon and maybe 1/2 inch if it happens to snow). However, I watch videos on You Tube and I see pics of dogs in the snow and they loooove romping in the white powder. But as you have written, short haired dogs don’t generally like cold but they adore paying in the snow. I suppose that lasts until they get really cold.

    The next thing that I really like are the great photos that you are using as your header, I am so envious of all those great old houses and barns.

    1. To be honest Yvonne, when we went to the shelter looking for a new luv when our beautiful Ripken died, we went with the intent on getting another lab. But when we saw just how many Pit Bulls were there, we felt they needed to have a chance. We spent time a few, also sweet as pie, but there was just something about Sadie that melted our hearts. She is extremely intelligent. But what we love most about her is she enjoys EVERYTHING to the max! When you give a dog a treat, most will wag their tails and gobble it up. Right? Not Sadie. She takes it and runs into the family room, throws it in the air, catches it, throws it again, plays with it like a kitten with a piece of yarn…all the time ‘smiling’ and wagging her whole butt, until she lays down beside it, looks at us as if to ask if it’s okay to eat, and when we nod, she chomps it into pieces and relishes every bite. EVERY SINGLE TIME! We love spending time with her because she loves spending time with us. She’s been a dream dog since day one and we’d recommend her breed to anyone that asks!
      And thank you for the kind words about the photos. Old places that have gone to seed, look to have gone back to nature are my most favorite subjects. What most people do NOT know, is I take 99% of these photos from a moving vehicle. 🙂 I’m at the beginning of trying to do something with them, and have the idea to call my business “On The Fly Photography” because that’s how I take them. If you look carefully in some of them, you’ll see the ‘motion’ somewhere in the picture. Sometimes a tree or the grass or sometimes the structure itself. So…wish me luck and the motivation to keep working on getting this up and running.

      1. I love Sadie’s story and I can well imagine that you are so vey glad that you chose her and maybe she chose you. The treat thing is precious. I can usually tell by face of a dog it they are smart and she definitely looks very smart.

        As far as you photos go, I think they should go into a book. I think they are that good. There are no such places here in Central Texas- at least I have not seen them. I would need to do lots of driving to East Texas and out to West Texas to find the old barns and houses. I’d love to do that but I just don’t think the strain of driving for hours would be good for my abib which is just waiting for a chance to rear its ugly head..

        1. Thank you Yvonne, for your support. I drove my Mother out to Texas (Frisco) in December to see my brother. Had the priority not been to get there as soon as possible, I would have loved to have taken the time to photograph the journey. I imagine if one had the time and energy and was healthy…a trip through Texas would yield quite a few old places. But…I can see it would also be long distances between sightings and very inconvenient if there are health issues, which there are with my Mother and why I didn’t scout places on the journey back. One day maybe…
