Does and their yearlings are starting to come into town and our neighborhood. I need to start taking the camera on my walks.

i'm going to have to wear my go pro one night on my way into work.

i just have to figure out how to blur the speedometer for legal purposes.

there's usually no traffic, but the ride is nice.

Every year about this time, we get the Parade of the Farm Equipment. To be expected, as we're rural. A few years ago, we had dozens of deer in our back yard, a big buck even walked up the back steps and wanted to be invited in.

We have a protected wetlands about 1/4 mile from where I live. There are all kinds of birds and other critters there. At the beginning of every spring, we even have a pair of swans that stay for the summer and then head out when the cold weather hits. There is a section that my transportation passes on the way to Winthrop. My driver always slows down so I can watch the swans.

There are millions of Cat O' Nine-tails growing all over the place there. I don't know if it is legal to cut them, but I have always wanted to cut a bunch of them, spray the heads with hair spray and put them in one of those large floor jars. But I will leave them alone. I have no desire to go to jail or pay a fine.

Is this what you mean?



It's a bull rush.

This is a Cat O' Nine-tails:

taxy, down here in the lower 48 the bullrush is also called cat tails. I'm guessing that's what Addie meant - unless she's into kinky stuff.


When we lived in OH, our county was along a flyway for Canada geese (yup, that's the proper name for them). I was driving along, minding my own business, when I noticed a huge "V" formation flying overhead. Then I heard their "business" hitting my car! It was cold out, I HAD a cold, and here I am at one of those feed-a-quarter-wash-your-car-yourself places hosing bird doo off my car before the acid could ruin the paint.

K-girl, when we go back home we stay at our daughter's. She's not too far from the cluster of towns that comprise a large Amish community. This is the kind of traffic jam by her:
