Again with a quiet forest in mind Pheebs and I did get ourselves out for an early morning walk in the Hullett Marsh before the heat and humidity brought the dreaded Deer Flies out. I will leave you with a few photos and I have a question for my fellow Bloggers at the end of my post.......................
A HOBBIT LIVES IN THERE
NO THAT IS NOT A HOBBIT IT’S A WILD MALE TURKEY
SPOTTED A GIANT STICK MANTIS MAKING IT’S WAY THROUGH THE FOLIAGE
SWALLOWS AND IT LOOKS LIKE THE SHADOW COWBOY TRIED TO SNEAK IN A SELFIE
A FARMER’S FIELD ALONG THE EDGE OF THE WOODS
WE WERE LUCKY IN THE COOL FOREST THERE WERE VERY FEW DEER FLIES BUT WHEN WE STEPPED OUT INTO THE SUNNY MEADOW BELOW WE WERE MOBBED AND HAD TO MAKE A HASTY DASH FOR THE JEEP

I am at an age and stage in my life now where it is very difficult for me to trust people anymore and especially here on the internet. Truth is an elusive and suspect thing regardless of where I encounter it anymore it seems. Case in point:: In the past few weeks I have received 3 emails from a person with this as their opening line. “Hi Al, We’re handpicking some of the finest bloggers in the world to interview for Blogging.com. And we’d like to interview you about the success of Travel With The Bayfield Bunch. Travel With The Bayfield Bunch will be profiled on Blogging.com, with worldwide exposure”……….. Now, I see a ‘red flag’ here!! I am not an ‘expert blogger’ and I am not naïve enough to think I am. I’m just a guy who happens to write a blog most every day like many others. The line that really has a red flag for me is this one, “We’re handpicking some of the finest bloggers in the world”…… In the world?? Come on now!!!!!! So fellow bloggers here is my question. How many of you folks have received this very same suspicious sounding email?? I’m almost sure it has to be a scam so I’m looking for some kind of verification that it is. I’d appreciate you letting me know…..thanks. Expert Schmexpert!!
THESE ARE THE LAST PHOTOS OF SATURDAY NIGHT’S SUNSET IN GODERICH
NONE OF THESE SUNSET PHOTOS HAVE BEEN COLOR ENHANCED BUT I DO HAVE A TENDENCY TO UNDEREXPOSE MY SUNSETS GIVING THEM A FEELING OF DEPTH
GROANER'S CORNER:(( This woman rushed to see her doctor, looking very much worried and all strung out. She rattles off: Doctor, take a look at me. When I woke up this morning, I looked at myself in the mirror and saw my hair all wiry and frazzled up, my skin was all wrinkled and pasty, my eyes were bloodshot and bugging out, and I had this corpse-like look on my face! What's WRONG with me, Doctor!? The doctor looks her over for a couple of minutes, then calmly says: Well, I can tell you that there is nothing wrong with your eyesight....

My goodness, beautiful sunset photos.ReplyDelete
I usually ask those fools how much they will pay me since they plan making money from my interview. I have not had any lately.ReplyDelete
It may turn out out to be malarkey Al, but, I do believe you are one of the best bloggers in the world. And if this is on the up and up, it is well deserved. I hope it is legit. Do a little research to check them out. Email them maybe...do they have a website?, etc...ReplyDelete
They definitely have the earmark of a fishing scam.ReplyDelete
Al I went to the site the writer suggested, blogging.com....... I’d stay away from it. Way way away. Just my own personal opinion. I’d like others to check out the site and see what they think. Your pictures tonight are as always....INCREDIBLE!!ReplyDelete
As they say... if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is a scam.ReplyDelete
Loved the photo and especially the magnificent sunset ones. Thanks for sharing.
I received one a long while back and I know I am the worst blogger going. I just deleted it. Yep if it's to good to be true then it is not to be believedReplyDelete
Wow, the sunset photos! Your blog is the best in my opinion, but I would not want anything bad to happen to you. Don't blame you for being skeptical.ReplyDelete
I've never received that email, but I would be skeptical if I did, Al. Diana and I usually trash those communications. The weird thing we do get is a bunch of email follows from nonsensical Outlook accounts. They show up, and then Wordpress removes them. Go figure...ReplyDelete
Love your sunset pics.ReplyDelete
I have had a few similar emails and just mark them as spam, If I did not go looking for it I don't need it
You are an expert Al, you noticed the "red flags" right away!ReplyDelete
Those sunset photos are so beautiful - look like an advertisement for a faraway tropical island.!🐦ReplyDelete
Your Blog is the Best that we have ever seen especially with all those beautiful pictures.ReplyDelete
I went to Blogger.com to check it out. It seems to be a site set up to teach Wanna-be Bloggers how to use Wordpress to create their blogs. Pictures of those associated seem to be in our Grandkids age group.
Have received a couple of those requests, thinking that we are far from your category so simply deleted them.
Be Safe and Enjoy!
It's about time.
Great sunset photos. I think sharing your way is the best way and not their way.ReplyDelete
Great photos. I just delete those type of emails.ReplyDelete
