Snowmen are getting larger at an alarming rate!!!

 The U.S. Government Study suggests that you slim down your snowman and stop feeding it snow. Stop the maddness.

New for Christmas, an electronic cat warmer!

It was so cold this morning that Creamy the cat used his new cat warmer!
Creamy the cat got his Christmas present early this year. It's a new electronic cat warmer with all the functions. Pictured here is Creamy enjoying the warmth. Creamy indicated that the electronic cat warmer is easy to use, warms fast and will even warm a bowl of milk. Creamy said "I really look forward to it after my morning patrol around the neighborhood, soooo relaxing." That Creamy cat is one smart cat.

A family farm tribute!

Without the farmer there would be no thanksgiving meal. This picture is of a cool fall morning and a cardinal perched on a rusted barb wire fence, with a cedar post that was placed in the ground years ago by a farmer. 

The loss of the family farm

Rotting externally into a time unknown,
Giving way into the land unsown,
The ghosts of the family farm it once knew,
are replaced by a world that is desperately new.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

These two turkeys are on the run. They certainly don't want to end up on a Thanksgiving table. I am sure they wished Ben Franklin had his way and the turkey was our national bird. Thank goodness the majestic eagle won the award because it just wouldn't feel right to have a national bird that gobbles. Have a blessed Thanksgiving.

Little Bear

This summer we went to the Smokey Mountains and stayed in a condo near Gatlinburg. It's always exciting to see a bear in the woods and on this mini-vacation we were visited by a young black bear. We named this bear "Little Bear" because he was so small.
Each day Little Bear would visit the condo. It was obvious that Little Bear was looking for food around the  trash bins and I think he slept in a brier patch just the down the road.
We never did see his mother, but others staying near us said they had seen a mother bear around. I was never near the bear and used my long range lens to take pictures. In this picture I was about 30ft above the bear on the condo deck.
