Turned around from the sink and there she was. I think she’s 14 or 15 years old, maybe more.
We caught about 50+ crappie (pronounced ‘croppy’) this morning. We are taking pounds and pounds of crappie fillets back to Mississippi. There is a fish fry in our future. It was a beautiful morning, atypical for Texas this time of year. Started off almost chilly. Met up with the guide at the local gas station
There are fish involved.
Took the dogs to the Hidden Pasture today. Passed by Bonnie & Clyde’s on the way down. They’d come out for their morning stroll by the time we returned. 8:49. 79°. Going to be a hot one today.
I was about to say he was out of the picture, but nothing could be further from the truth. And my how they’ve grown! Not babies any more! I feel sorry for folks who don’t have a pond with geese to drive past on their way to town.
The growth or movement of a fixed organism toward or away from light. In plants, phototropism is a response to blue wavelengths of light and is caused by a redistribution of auxin from the illuminated side to the darker side of the shoot, resulting in quicker growth on the darker side and bending of the
The population of the town in which this high school was located was 8,704 in 1970, and 7,730 in 1980. By my count there were 37 students in the Latin Club that year. Years ago, seventh graders in this town had the option to take two year-end tests, one in language skills, the other in
Thursday evening’s videos showed clouds to the east– the rain we’d had an hour or so earlier. This photo is the beginning of a little squall line that blessed us with an evening shower. Years ago, I took up bird watching– even bought the National Audubon Society Field Guide. It told me that every year
As you can see, this was more than 10 years ago. What a great year we had! Indeed, spending a year on the north fork of the Shenandoah River was no doubt a distal cause of our moving to Mississippi just three years later. Round trip: 236 steps! BTW– this was the year of bird
For years now, a blue heron has had a nest at the northeast corner of The Lake. Nothing quite like watching a blue heron fly up out of the grass near the water. I can see it perched on a dead tree truck on the far shore (bottom left photo). [Photos taken on my Nikon
Along the Via Dolorosa, Way of Grief. The top photo is of an impression of Jesus’ hand as he stumbled while carrying the cross. Top row middle, Station VII along the way where Jesus fell a second time. Church of the Holy Sepulcher. Entry to the tomb. This site has a telling of Via Dolorosa
Yesterday evening’s sky. So much going on. In the large photo, can you see the whisps coming up from the bottom and arching out to the left (north)? The wind at the time was from the south/southeast. So is it visible water vapor rising? I feel sorry for folks who don’t have an evening sky
I’m taking it easy today. JK! (That’s kid speak for “just kidding.”) [For the toxic among you, I’ll be talking about Makitta drills below!] After our return from Memphis, I had five and one-half days to get the joint– including the Bunkhouse and some outside parts– ready for company on Saturday afternoon. And not just
Memphis Zoo and Aquarium, Memphis. Memphis, Tennessee. Traveling Sunday– a day late on account of the fact that we were traveling! The hotels in downtown Memphis are to be avoided at all costs. The SleepInn elevator (1) malfunctioned. Stopped at every unoccupied floor on the way to 5 & 6 and back down again We
Hobbiton, New Zealand! From Kat & Tony’s Newsletter: To get to Hobbiton, you drive into farm country. Actually, most of New Zealand is farm country, but in this case you drive into places where it’s tough to get a cell signal. We arrived late the night before — late enough that we weren’t sure whether
In today’s Drudgework Monday we’ll do a lot of ironing, review some movies, and muse about civilization. Twenty-two point eight five gigs– that’s how much ironing I did this weekend. I do not mind ironing. I have to be in the right mood, and the weather has to cooperate, but given those, it’s not a
