Cucoo is Going Bald............

Last Tuesday when I got to meet a blogging friend Abandoned in Pasadena, Sandy she had brought Cucoo along. I think he goes on many, many trips with them. I think when they are not watching he probably tries to ride alone! Yeah, that's just the way Cucoo is. She said he was getting a little bald. Probably from the wind blowing through his lavender colored hair as they cruise along the highways on the motorcycle. I mean a hair here and a hair there.....and when it's not coming back....that can lead to baldness. The antenna in the picture was kind of in the way to get a good look at him. That is Sandy holding him so he doesn't run off.

We have had a couple of storms this evening. Maybe some cooler air will be behind it? Fingers crossed!

This is a patch of tobacco right across from us as the crow flies. Probably about 2 miles I'd say. It is really pretty, so green and growing so well. You don't see as much tobacco being grown now as you used to. I sure did my fair share of work in it when I was growing up. That was enough to do me.

I hope everyone has a wonderful fun-filled weekend.

Oh my, I hope Cucoo doesn't lose all of his hair! LOL

I am with you on the cooler temps, that would be great. We haven't had much storms yet and some rain. The rain was very much welcomed too!

I like seeing pictures of tobacco fields they remind me of my childhood. And like you said.. you don't see many crops of tobacco anymore. It is kind of a sad thing especially for tobacco farmers. My dad used to raise acres and acres of tobacco and all of us kids helped in it, so I too got my fair share of working in tobacco. LOL I have to say that I don't miss the working in tobacco it is hard work!!! But I did like setting the tobacco on the setter and driving the tractor. VBS

Hi Rachael,
My dad's family were tobacco farmers in KY! I have been there once when I was 4, so don't remember a whole lot about it..
I love seeing the pictures of the fields though.
(They left KY for CA in 1941)

I must say that I never worked in tobacco, but I do think it looks pretty growing in the field and you don't see many of those anymore...although I still see quite a few smokers, but it seems that tobacco is now bought from overseas, instead of home grown.

I must say that you did get a good photo of Cucoo...he likes to go off on his own to explore, so sometimes you just have to keep a good tight hold of him.

I've always loved Sandy's Cucoo!! Nice shot of her...I will copy it to add to my blogging friends notebook...she posted one not to long ago but said it was a couple of years old...glad to have a recent shot... thing I remember is in the fall when they cure it...I love the smell but never noticed it till I moved back from Texas...that smell always means fall to me....

This reminded me of the tobacco field we'd see when driving to visit my grandparents in Mississippi! :)

Cucoo's Hair is such a pretty color! I think it's sp great you got to meet SAndy...

I am going to meet WEndy from Nw Zealand when she is here for the Emmy's. She will be staying at a hotel right below my hill--like 5 minutes from me--isn't that amazing?
Hope your weekend is wonderful, too, Rachel...! (It is like a Sream Bath here in L.A. A Petrie Dish for my lungs, I'm afraid...I am praying there will be no power outages...!)

How wonderful that you got to meet Sandy and Jimmy, and that they got to meet YOU!

Cuckoo will still be cute when he's bald. Sandy will have to get him a toupee.

The photo does make your shirt look very funky.
I thought you were becoming a hippee or something. It looks pretty neat to me.

It has cooled off here today. It is supposed to warm up again though.

Happy weekend to you.

We came through eastern St. Louis this morning. The papers said they had real bad storms Friday, 570,000 customers had lost power.
You didn't want that part of the storm.
