It was this early morning's cooler air that perked me up and inspired Pheebs and I to head ourselves over to the Hullett Marsh. It is always peaceful there as Mother Nature gently opens her arms and welcomes anyone in to slowly wander along her pathways or paddle her waterways and enjoy all her natural wonders.
|DID YOU SEE THE PHEEBS?|
Pheebs will be turning 13 soon and she is doing well also since those problems she had getting into and out of the Jeep back in the Spring. The Subaru is slightly lower than the Jeep so when we get it I'm thinking she will find it easier to get into and out of.
MILKWEED PODS THISTLES HAVE GONE TO SEED TEAZEL
Kelly's doing okay these days and feeling a touch better now that she has her many meds figured out. Her auto-immune liver disease has kind of backed off for the moment which is probably the result of those medications. She is doing much better than she was four or five months ago when she was hospitalized and had to undergo those blood transfusions, etc.
THE THREE TEAZEL AMIGOS
Improvements continue here at our Park with the new owner working hard at cleaning things up and bringing the Park up to par from where it was. However, there is a bit of a sticky problem going on because the old owner still lives here and is causing problems for the new owner. We all have our fingers tightly crossed that this problem will be resolved soon.

I have plowed through a couple more books in these past few weeks. First, What It's Really Like: Flying the Alaska Bush by Mort Mason. It never ceases to amaze me what these Alaskan bush pilots put themselves through. This is another book of harrowing tales made even more interesting by the author not shying away from admitting to crazy mistakes, dumb things, and a few poor decisions he has made. I also just finished Life After Life by Dr. Raymond A Moody. This is another mind-stretching and eye-opening book that deals with near-death experiences. (NDE) At my age now I find these topics fascinating and this fellow explains things very well from different perspectives including scientific and religious viewpoints. If you are on the fence like I was and wondering about this sort of thing I suggest you read this book and at least educate and bring yourself up to speed with what is known and what is still unknown about this controversial and not often talked about subject. Personally, I was encouraged by what I read.
WE ARE FINALLY BACK AT THE JEEP
