|LITTLE DID I KNOW EARLY THIS MORNING THAT I WOULD LATER END UP HAVING TO CUT SOME BRANCHES OFF THAT SMALL ORANGEY LEAF TREE ON THE LEFT|
|AND IT WOULD ALL HAVE TO DO WITH THIS GUY AND HIS BUDDIES|
|LOOK CLOSELY TO THE RIGHT AND YOU CAN SEE THE SQUIRREL LANDING ON THE BIRD STATION AFTER LEAPING FROM THE TREE ON THE EXTREME LEFT|
|I PLOPPED THIS GARBAGE CAN ON THE FEEDER AND PULLED IT TO THE SIDE WHERE THE SQUIRREL WAS LANDING ON THE FEEDER BUT AS YOU CAN SEE AT THE BOTTOM RIGHT HE DIDN'T LET THE GARBAGE CAN STOP HIM EITHER|
|THE TREE NEEDED SOME CUTTING BACK ANYWAY SO THAT'S WHAT I DID|
|I FIGURED I WAS ALL RIGHT NOW UNTIL I SAW ANOTHER SQUIRREL LEAP ONTO THE FEEDER FROM A PINE TREE BRANCH OFF TO THE RIGHT|
|IF THIS DOESN'T WORK I WILL HAVE TO GET A BIGGER PIECE OF WOOD OR A PADDED CELL AT THE LOCAL LOONY BIN|
|IT WAS THE PINE TREE TO THE LEFT THAT THE SQUIRREL WAS JUMPING FROM|
|SO, THIS IS NOW THINGS ARE LOOKING NOW.....STAY TUNED|
|I HAD GONE OUT ONE DOOR AND COME BACK IN ANOTHER DOOR BUT PHEEBS DIDN'T HEAR ME COME IN AND SHE IS SITTING BY THE WINDOW PATIENTLY WAITING AND WATCHING FOR ME|
If I thought Thursday morning was cold and windy, I hadn't met Friday morning yet. Under overcast skies, Pheebs and I again slipped into Bayfield for a short drive around keeping an eye out for Christmas decorations.
|YEP, IT SURE LOOKS LIKE A MORNING COFFEE BREAK|
|THESE POLE-WALKING LADIES DIDN'T LET A LITTLE COLD WEATHER SLOW THEM DONE|
|YELLOW DOORS ALWAYS CATCH MY EYE|
A number of our RVing friends are already basking in the Arizona sunshine and I must admit, I have trouble reading their posts and seeing all their great photos. Looking at those deserts and mountains, and seeing folks walking amongst the big Saguaro cactus genuinely makes me homesick and I yearn to be there again to see the gorgeous sunrises, sunsets, and big starry night skies. I'm grateful for the 13 winters we spent traveling the southwest but those 13 years have made me even more restless than ever. Had we not ever been to the southwest I wouldn't know what we were missing but having been there I know exactly what we are missing. Some people I suppose can just turn it off and get on with where they are now in their life but I seem to be struggling with that. Every time I read someone's blog about the southwest and look at their photos, I just want to go out, hop into Scooter, and set a course, south by southwest.........
|BACK IN OUR BAYFIELD PINES PARK|
|HEY THAT LOOKS LIKE OUR PLACE|
|YES, THIS IS OUR PLACE ALRIGHT|
This weekend it is the annual Christmas In Bayfield and I noticed a number of workmen around Bayfield's main street setting up for that. It looks like it could be a cold blustery winter's day for the parade on Saturday. Cold and blustery does not work for me so I won't be there to watch the parade. I've never been big on parades anyway. Well okay, maybe a long time ago I was........
GROANER'S CORNER:(( A Scottish atheist was spending a quiet day fishing in the lake when suddenly his boat was attacked by the Loch Ness monster. In one easy flip, the beast tossed him and his boat at least a hundred feet into the air. It then opened its mouth waiting below to swallow them both. As the Scotsman sailed head over heels and started to fall towards the open jaws of the ferocious beast, he cried out, "Oh, my God! Help me!" Suddenly, the scene froze in place and as the atheist hung in midair, a booming voice came out of the clouds and said, "I thought you didn't believe in Me!" "God, come on, give me a break!" the man pleaded, "Just seconds ago I didn't believe in the Loch Ness monster either!"
Some South Americans visited Italy, and the country's beauty made them cry. I think they were Venice wailin'.
