TUESDAY TAIL TALE: HIGH-TAILED IT

Whew!  Five of us does just played chicken on the highway.  We took on a truck with a plow.  So believe me, we high-tailed it and then blew them away!

THURSDAY THANKS: SURPRISE VISITOR

DEER SUPRISE VISIT 2018 BARLEY DARTS

While this surprise visitor is being nosy and is a picky eater, she could care less about:

Our home’s condition.

Our religious and political associations.

Our sex and age.

Our financial status.

Our Wi-Fi availability.

She is most welcome here; anytime.

 

TUESDAY TAIL TALE: DOE TRIO

DOE TRIO 2017 BARLEY DARTS

On opening day, these fine does danced behind Keith in his tree stand, east of the shack where I was stationed.  I had a front row seat to their performance.  Eventually, they tip-toed their way into the river bottom, to the south.

About half an hour later, the trio reemerged stage right, on the west side of the shack.  They sashayed north at a cautious pace for their grand finale.  Suddenly, they all froze at precisely the same time.  Then they did a synchronized and abrupt about-face.  Together, they leaped, almost arm-in-arm, back into the river bottom.

It left me begging for more and I gave them a standing ovation.  Alas, there was no encore.  However, I plan to go back to watch them, again and again.  Nature’s shows are never boring and often breath taking.

SATURDAY SNAPSHOTS: STILLNESS

“No domestic animal can be as still as a wild animal.  The civilized people have lost the aptitude of stillness, and must take lessons in silence from the wild…” – Isak Dinesen (pen name for Karen Blixen)
