But something like this would be my home-away-from-home (which would BE my home since I couldn't afford this and another place):

That's what I'm talkin' about...something I can't see out of!

They all drive like those proverbial bats.

When my daughter visits me down here in pokeyville, she still drives that way and keeps me holding on for dear life while I mash a hole in the floor with 'my' brake pedal.
By the time I got comfortable driving in Denver we moved back to Wyoming. Missoula is a madhouse, those people out there are crazy.

I don't think it floats, but I have some water wings.

We have Canadian Geese by the thousands here on there way south and north. Coming and going. A good long blast of your horn and they leave a mess all over the road before they take off.

You wouldn't think it, but we have a lot of waterways for migrating birds.

when we were on vacation by lake placid this past summer, a huge flock of canadian geese came in for a landing on a small glen next to the lake.

i told dw and my boy to watch the water as they made their final approach.

boom, boom, splash, splunk!

they tend to drop their ordinance as they come in for a landing as well. lol, dw and the boy were so grossed out.

tinlizzie, that's a beautiful pic. Farmer Jon, I loved the pic of your area, too. Thanks for sharing.

Princess....LOL

Yeah, the geese ARE messy. I just waited patiently for them to cross. I love seeing the little quail families making their way across that same back road to Albertson's - they are so cute, the little chicks' legs move so fast.
