News and Pictures

Front Yard
Look in the front yard - it's Bambi and Thumper!  Mom puts out food for the nice little animals from the woods next to us, and generally is rewarded by multiple wildlife sightings all day long.

Bambi and Thumper
These two are after the corn Mom leaves in the yard.  There are more deer than just this one, but the others are reasonably cautious about coming out into the open during daylight.  I'm usually not one to get overly sentimental and try for a cutesy shot of critters in the wild, but the deer and rabbit combination was too much to resist.

The other day I walked over to the Centenarian's house and got a few shots of the flora in her front yard.


The bloom will be completely off this rose in a day or two, but for now it's very impressive.  The picture underneath is a clematis vine that I bought the Centenarian some years ago, and it has returned every summer.  This year it's making an excellent come back from the winter.



Here is Excellent Rachmaninoff with his summer hair cut. Isn't he a handsome boy? He's friendly too, so long as you don't get too close to his mouth.


I believe it's time for my evening manhattan. Cheers!
