A SUSPECTED NEIGHBOR’S CAT DROPS BY TO SEE IF THE ‘FROG POND DINER’ IS OPEN FOR THE SEASON YET
Big cold winds came in the night driving temperatures down & making our outside morning barely habitable but I did manage to get in about half an hours yard work before the equally as cold rain began around 8:30 lasting into late morning. Just no getting around the fact it was not one of our better weather days. Thursday is looking grumpy as well then our temperatures begin to soar as the weatherman calls for a few warm sunny days. If my posts are sounding more like weather reports I guess that gives you some idea where my interest challenge is sitting at right now.
NICE LOOKING LITTLE FELLOW & DID YOU KNOW WE WERE CAT PEOPLE BEFORE WE WERE DOG PEOPLE…YEP IT’S TRUE:))
Close call for Peter & Bea’s dog Molly when she was recently attacked by a Coyote. You can read about it here on Peter’s blog, American Traveler. A close call indeed & it happened on a golf course. And the Furry Gnome has captured himself a few more nice frozen waterfall photos up here in Ontario’s Beaver Valley. The folks over at CC and Dixie recently spent a couple weeks in California’s Mojave National Preserve where Kelly & I were awhile back & they have themselves some fine photos of the area.
AND INDEED WARMER TEMPERATURES HAVE BROUGHT OUT OUR CARDINALS CREST

Figured with the inclement weather it would be a good opportunity to pull the Jeep into the carport this afternoon & do a good clean-up of the interior. Lots of South-west desert dust inside with enough dog fur to knit a couple sweaters. Good thing we have new Shop-Vac.
<<< NICE TO SEE OUR LITTLE UPSIDE DOWN NUTHATCH’S BACK AGAIN
It is in times of occasional inactivity mixed with a small dose of disinterest & a touch of boredom that I sometimes look inwardly for writing inspirations & oft times by doing so I land myself in a big pot of uncomfortable soup at the end of the day. I go to bed at night & thrash around a bit wondering why I sometimes write the things I write. Have noticed I definitely do sleep better having gone to bed after having written things of lighter fare. Those days when I have things going on, places traveled to & from, usual or unusual things I may have encountered or seen. Things which spark one’s creative imagination. Yes, it is those days I most enjoy writing about. Maybe a little more looking outwardly & a little less looking inwardly just might do the trick methinks. Something for me to work on & maybe even go out on a limb & take time to talk to a few other fellow Humanoids along the way here & there. Now how’s that for a thought………………………:))
A COUPLE OF RATHER REGAL LOOKING DARK EYED JUNCOS (IF SOME OF MY BIRD PHOTOS APPEAR A BIT GRAINY IT IS BECAUSE OF OCCASIONAL LOW LIGHT CONDITIONS )
GROANER’S CORNER:(( Doug Smith is on his deathbed and knows the end is near. His nurse, his wife, his daughter and two sons, are with him. He asks for two witnesses to be present and a camcorder be in place to record his last wishes, and when all is ready he begins to speak:
"My son, Bernie, I want you to take the Mayfair houses."
"My daughter, Sybil, you to take the apartments over in the east end."
"My son, Jamie, I want you to take the offices over in the City Center."
"Sarah, my dear wife, please take all the residential buildings on the banks of the river."
The nurse and witnesses are blown away as they did not realize his extensive holdings, and as Doug slips away, the nurse says, "Mrs. Smith, your husband must have been such a hard-working man to have accumulated all this property".
Sarah replies, "Property? .... the jerk had a paper route!"
