NOTE THE ANIMAL TRACKS ALONG THE TOP OF THE SNOW DRIFT
Ho-Hum what can I say. Another cold and gray drab day. It was a drive over to the Hullett Marsh and back for Pheebs and I this morning and that was about it. Cold and raining tonight as I post this. Squirrel score still stands at 12-11 for AL:))
FROZEN FOREST POND
AT THE WILDLIFE VIEWING STAND IN THE HULLET MARSH
THIS FARMER MUST BE EXPECTING SOME SERIOUS SNOW
IN CASE OF EMERGENCY WE ALWAYS TRAVEL WITH WINTER GEAR…..HEAVY DUTY LINED COVERALLS AT RIGHT, SNOW SHOVEL, BLANKETS AT LEFT, BALACLAVA TOQUE, WARM MITTS, AND IN THAT PLASTIC BIN THINGS LIKE WATER, ENERGY BARS, TOW STRAP, BOOSTER CABLES, ETC.
JUST ANOTHER COLD GRAY DAY
GROANER’S CORNER:(( The room was full of pregnant women and their partners, and the Lamaze class was in full swing. The instructor was teaching the women how to breathe properly, along with informing the men how to give the necessary assurances at this stage of the plan. The teacher then announced, "Ladies, exercise is good for you. Walking is especially beneficial. And, gentlemen, it wouldn't hurt you to take the time to go walking with your partner!" The room really got quiet. Finally, a man in the middle of the group raised his hand. "Yes?" replied the teacher. "Is it alright if she carries a golf bag while we walk?"
There were two blondes who went deep into the frozen woods searching for a Christmas tree. After hours of subzero temperatures a few close calls with hungry wolves, one blonde turned to the other and said, "I'm chopping down the next tree I see. I don't care whether it's decorated or not!"
Q. What did Adam say on the day before Christmas? A. It's Christmas, Eve.
Two boll weevils grew up in South Carolina. One went to Hollywood and became a famous actor. The other stayed behind in the cotton fields and never amounted to much. The second one, naturally, became known as the lesser of two weevils.
Liked the frozen forest pond... darks in the trees against the white of the snow, the grays in the water and the red and brown branches in the foreground. Great composition Al! I like the story you are telling with "staying warm".. the horse standing still and blanketed, but you can see his footprints in the snow. There are many ways to stay warm! Glad to see you are prepared for an emergency out on those country roads.ReplyDelete
Good emergency stuff in the jeep. Is the Big EE all packed and ready to go?ReplyDelete
If you are heading south, please don't bring any of that white stuff with you.ReplyDelete
Al, just think how bored you would be if you were not having the War of the Squirrels going on. Hoping you still have a tree left at the end of winter.ReplyDelete
I'm enjoying the war with the squirrels. Keeps me very entertained. My dad goes through the same war and doesn't have any better stats than you do. They are smart little critters. Soon the big wheels will be rolling and you'll be where the sun shines and the winds are warm.ReplyDelete
Love the on-going squirrel saga! Glad to hear you are going south again!!ReplyDelete
