Picture catch up

So looking back, I see I have shared NONE of the smattering of pictures I have taken in September.  Well, that changes now...


A couple of Saturdays back, we talked Laurie into coming with us on our journey.  Of course, nothing spectacular occurred...





Sunday, it was just me and Scrappy...


So hurry it up already!


...but this was the infamous "wow, we're both petered out" day, and nothing of note came our way.

Tuesday was a beautiful afternoon...




And we enjoyed a visit with nature...





...though someone was a tad impatient...


...and not even a mushroom around to slay!


Wednesday was a funny day.  We took off late, passing the socceristas on the way through to California Road.  coming back towards the woods, we had to wait on them clearing out in their cars to cross back over- not only did Scrappy wait like a good boy, but he watched so carefully that when a break came, he was off before I could get more that "le.." of "Let's go" out of my mouth!  So up towards the fields we went, when we came upon this tableau...






SEVEN deer- including a nicely topped buck!  The pics are not great b/c it was dusk and my camera isn't an infra-red job (feel free to start a GoFundMe page if you like), but it was sure fun to be there!


That brings us to THIS Sunday...


...where we see they are indeed finally removing the structures from around the new electrical towers... 

...ducks and geese are returning for a brief last visit...

They've even rebuilt some of the bank they crushed trying to get the fool things up!



So I told Scrappy we'd better take one last trip down the boardwalk before they pull it.  Ten feet after this, he said goodbye by pooping on it.


And that brings us to yesterday...




...where our only contribution was yet another fallen tree in the woods, this one bringing a buttload of vines with it.


So how's that Peanut doing?  Well, papa says the Doc reports him in a low percentile on height and weight, to which I said, "Don't worry, so were you."  And we officially have the "this is for when you are in high school and friends come over" picture...


Yeah, see if you think it's still funny in 14 years...
  And one more thing I have to share with you.  Comic Book Resources amuses itself these days by making various lists, for example, Top 15 times Hulk crapped in his purple trousers, you get the idea.  So last night they had one where they took panels from classic comic books, and suggested you take them out of context.  The one that caught my eye had to do with a story about a villain the Justice League had defeated, only to have him come back and announce that he'd given them all a deadly virus that they would spread to others.  Watch Batman as they ponder the fate of their loved ones...





Very nearly did a spit take on THAT one!

    ---Dang, that poor tree. Looks painful.
    ---The out of context comic...only TWO words:
    GOOD LORD!
    (is nothing sacred any longer?)

    Very nice tours of the wooded areas.

    Stay safe (and say HI to Scrappy for us) up there, brother.

  2. - Looked like a morning glory variety...

    -Yep, a heron, said her name was Heather...

    -The bridge is the one bright thing PFW has accomplished of late.

    - Scrappy a guide dog? That would bring new meaning to the phrase concerning one's ass and both hands...

    - I'll come take pictures in your window at night... JK

  4. Well, I got all excited about the bunny picture (I have a soft spot for them), but then I saw the all the deer and was like, "Holy cow!" Then reminded myself they were deer not cows. ;)

    Enjoy the rest of your week!
