Yip Yuppity You Get One Free Pass
Another made-up phrase, one of the many liberties I take with the A to Z Challenge.
This 1989 pattern is so darn cute, it just had to make an appearance.
I am reinstituting the You Get One Free Pass post during this A to Z challenge for this Y letter day. Pretty much every letter's post has been a free for all. The only rules to follow are to ensure a post is produced each letter day.
I try all types of poses and action shots for photoshoots. This image is an outtake from the Theme Reveal. The gown was too small so I couldn't zip it up. My hiking boots were cropped from the original image.
This image is me heading out the back door for the A to Z apron photoshoot.

Xena, Queen of the Ranch
The oldest of my 3 +1 cats is Xena, and she fills the bill for the X letter day on the challenge.
A small Maine coon, she was adopted from the Amador County Animal Shelter. She has a sweet disposition and is very tolerant of the younger cat's antics.

Upland Bird and Waterfowl Hunting
Upland Bird Hunting is for the U letter day at the A to Z challenge. It is one of the Mr.'s favorite activities.
This image shows the pheasant in flight and Zipper, our German wirehaired pointer, in hot pursuit to retrieve. An expert marksman, the Mr. doesn't miss shots.
I recently listed this book for sale on eBay. I don't pass by books on hunting and fishing because they are eventual sure sellers.

Tiki Mug, Best of Trail Cam, and bag of Toys
Tiki mug was a $3.50 Goodwill find. I follow another reseller who specializes in these types of mugs. Because of his show, Thrifty over 50, I knew this item was of particular value. It is a Bumatay Tiki Mug Islander, valued at $285.00.
A trail cam is placed on the property and here are some of the best images.

Susie the middle cat, and visit from the Swallowtail
I think it was attracted to the red color in my plaid skirt. I can't imagine there was too much food for it to find in the middle of the city.
After I was able to snap a few pictures of it on my skirt, I was able to move it to my finger so we could get a closer look at each other.
