Something fun...


 A drive-by...maybe I should say a Slow down real slow drive-by.  I got this near the end of February.  Believe it or not it is the best so far.  I have been trying to get one for about 7 or 8 months.  I know it is coming, by the surrounding area...a brown barn sits across the way from it.  But from the road, you come around a small curve...not a bad one...but still you come around and right there they are and then they are gone.  But I smile every time I see them.  There is a sign that sits in front that says 'Minion Manor.'

Lure making...


 Roger used to always be doing something...he tied actual flies sometimes and others made lures.   I think he enjoyed making things as much as he enjoyed using them.

Places


 Places like this always appeal to me...it is a place I would have known by heart if I had lived near it.

Windows...


 I love arched windows.  Also, I always wonder what it is like to be on the inside looking out through stained glass.

Halt! Who goes there?


What was your first thought when you saw this photo?   The title was my first thought when I saw this vulture in the middle of the road.

Spring peepers


 I only wish I had recorded the sound...this was about two weeks ago.

Moving slow


 It was crossing the entrance to a little parking spot when we approached.

Bad Hair Day

 

I think I would prefer to have my hair cut if it were like this...

Sleeping/not sleeping...


 We managed to wander down to Goose Pond on this past Friday....I was hoping to see some something.  Two or three roads we wanted to go down were covered by water.   We did see a few ducks, and several hawks...and I was about to give up and head home and Lo and behold, I spotted these.  They were so far away I could not tell what they were.


I walked down till I was opposite them...I was still a distance away...though these photos are not the best, I am also amazed they are as good as they are.  The wind was off and iceberg and strong enough to cut right through a person.  If I had had an umbrella I could have become Mary Poppins.  So was luck that they are not terrible blurry just from the wind factor alone.

Sign


 We managed a drive yesterday...was going down a rural road and happened to spy this sign.  It made me laugh out loud.  Also, the road was really rough.

Big Red


 Even though he is red, I can just hear Foghorn Leghorn saying,   'I Say,..I say now....'

The Courthouse


  I just have to show a B&W version, the trouble is I am having trouble deciding which filtered version I like best.

Edgar County Courthouse detail....


 This courhouse is a beauty.  I would love to know if the inside is as beautiful as the outside.

Robin


 Is it me, or is its breast redder than normal?  This is the color it was...I thought it seemed a deeper color than normal.  Also, if it is, I wonder if it has to do with it being this early in spring.

Not my headache


 I really admire touches like these, or that 'Fairytale House' the other day, I too, would not want to have to deal with the upkeep.

Where they came from...

 


Where these came from is more than I know.  I found them packed away in a box with other things.

Then & Now


 Every now and then I post the same thing at both blogs...I posted this at my other blog, too.  The above is Copper's rescue photo.  (They called him Jordan), and the now photo.   


This was taken yesterday.  Below is his doggy DNA.

Fairytale house


 Whoever built this was talented...what a challenge this would be to built.  Any house with a turret makes me think of fairytales.

Can't resist


 I did not remember this barn...there is one other barn that I know of that is always this 'knock your eyes out' red color.   I would like to find this one again and see if it is still this brilliant red.  The one near here always remain the same bright color red.

Barn in spring...


 This is not the greatest photo, but it sure feels like spring.  Taken in April of 2010.  Look how fresh and green that grass is! If you will notice in the distance, the trees are just beginning to turn green.

Stileto


 I am pretty sure this is the second knife my husband made...many, many moons ago.

ID?


 I have been going to try to identify this but have not taken the time to yet.  So I hope someone can tell me in their comments.  It isn't just a female House Sparrow, is it?


Edited to add:

thanks Ginny, Anni, and Yamini for identifying this as the Chipping Sparrow.

A little cutie


 I always throw seeds on the ground for the squirrels, too.  They are so much fun to watch if you catch them playing. It is worth it for the joy of that.

Through my dining room window...


 This is a cropped portion of the photo...reduced in size to upload to blogger.  This dove was only about 10 ft away from me.

Another barn....


 I actually think this is an unpublished barn.  I wonder what shape it is in now.  Notice the roof is starting to deteriorate.
