One big rabbit living in our backyard.

It was a beautiful sunrise and all morning.  I was driving 'into' the sun so I needed my darkest sunglasses. 

Yesterday we watched the MCRC patching crew work their way slowly across our road frontage filling the almost constant string of potholes.  I was disappointed when they quit just about lunch time and didn't return.  They still had a long way to go.

And then this morning they showed up bright and early and probably spent most of the morning here.  I was gone so didn't get a chance to 'supervise' the job.  I'll go out later and look it over a bit closer.  So far I haven't heard any vehicles 'bottom out' as they all appear to be driving a little faster than they have been!

There was someone in a pickup (going so fast I couldn't tell you what brand) a few nights ago that I thought it was a fighter jet just practicing for a strafing run...   


way, way, way too fast for the wildlife we have around here much less their own well being due to the potholes.

Stupid is stupid.  Seems like a growing thing today.

I got up early and dropped a couple wood hogs with my 17 HMR about 8.  Nice rifle, very quiet, shoots like a laser beam.  Those little 17 grain ballistic tipped pills are devistating on Varmints out to 125 yards or so.  First one I plugged, did a back flip right into the creek, second one flogged around a bit so I gave him another send off.  The yotes will clean them up this evening.  Soon as I get my NV operational on the 22-250 Remington 700, the yotes will be getting a lead breakfast too.  Here in Michigan you can take yotes anytime, no season, day or night.  Nice thing about yotes is, if you let them lay, their 'brothers and sisters will eat them.

A very heavy dew this morning shining in all the sunshine.  This dew would have been frost if the temp would have been about 2 degrees lower. 

One squirrel has been out scampering all over the front yard.

Yesterday afternoon we saw the neighbor's guinea hens walking across our front yard.  We've never seen them this far over here before.  Sometimes they walk along the fence line chattering away.  The dog tends to leave them along but I'm concerned that if he catches them right out in the front yard he might go after them.

I no more than got the above posted and I looked out the front window and saw three turkeys walking across the field across the road.  Two walking ahead and one poking along with his tail all fluffed out.  Didn't take them long to get across the field.  I wonder if maybe I missed some and these three were just the stragglers :-\ :-\ :-\

Two pairs of gold finches at the bird feeder and hungry barn cats.

Yes, we just need to even things out.  Most of the yard hasn't grown much but a few spots have.  Over the seepage bed is one area and down by the road where there are ditches that have lots of water in them. 

This morning I see lots of sunshine again and I've been watching a squirrel while I drink coffee.

No sunshine and everything is wet. 

A wet squirrel and a wet dog!

The dog chased a rabbit while we were out retrieving the memory card from the trailcam yesterday and I think he went back to see if the rabbit was still there.

Silly dog ;) ;) ;)

We were sitting eating lunch.  The dog was in his favorite spot in the front door and we thought he was asleep when he started barking like crazy.  We looked out and there were two ducks walking down the edge of the road.  Lots of water with all the edge broken away. 

I figured they belonged to the neighbor as they have about 8-10 and sometimes they like to play out in our side yard but I've never seen them over this far.  Then a car came down the road and the ducks just flew away...   wild ducks!!!  Unfortunately this all happened before I could get my phone to take a picture.

We never did see the ducks again yesterday.

This morning it's just wet and dreary.

Not even a squirrel out and about :( :( :(
