More Trail Camage



It was just a matter of time before we got some pictures of a fox.







It may be two different foxes, one red, one gray.  The first one has black feet, so it's probably a red fox.  The second one doesn't seem to have the dark feet.








Here's Feral Cat skulking by the duck pen.  He is beefier than he was before I started feeding him.






Yes, that's a Texas flag.  The Handsome One is a Texan.








Here we have Fluffy Feral Cat.  A relative of FC, perhaps?







Another possible relative of FC.  I call him Cream Cat.

Trail Camage



As is our custom, The Handsome One and I celebrate our wedding anniversary with a gift to ourselves.  This year it's a trail camera!





  Nice crow in flight.






Deer and more deer.








It's hard to see, but there are at least two raccoons on the trail to the right.








Wait!  Who's this?  Oh.  Just Clover and me.  Never knew we looked so spooky on those early morning strolls.





It's easy to move the camera for a different view.  Just a matter of reaching in there and unstrapping it...










Mrs. Cardinal





Mr. Cardinal  appears to have found a piece of corn.






What have we here?





It might belong to this creature.






Finally a picture of Feral Cat!





Alas, not a very good one.  He just isn't photogenic.







Looks like a pretty big raccoon.   He appeared a few nights in a row.  Time to move the camera again.






There are more critters out here to capture.  Stay tuned.

Dad is Gone

Please say a prayer for my dad.  He passed away last night due to Congestive Heart Failure.








Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord, let perpetual light shine upon him.  Amen.

O Emmanuel, our King and Lawgiver, the Desire of all nations and their Savior:  come and save us, O Lord our God!  Amen.








Merry Christmas everybody!

Blast from the Past



Several weeks ago it snowed before all the leaves fell. 




Rather pretty, don't you think?

Pop Culture Frenzy, Round 82

Welcome once again to Pop Culture Frenzy.  Today's question comes from news out of Florida.  Is it my imagination or is Florida a hot bed of weird news?



Anyway.  A few days ago, somebody in Port St. Lucie 
stopped in a cul de sac, got out and left the car running
 with black lab, Max inside.  Max was in that car 
for about an hour.  What happened?
Molly?





 Max used the car to chase squirrels?



Hostmaster:  incorrect.
Bryon?



Max drove to that pretty Collie's
 house two blocks away.



Hostmaster:  incorrect.
Fluffy?






Max went to a drive through?



Hostmaster:   incorrect.
Cyndi?




He died in the car because it's so hot.




Hostmaster:  incorrect.




It is hot even in November because of  global warming.



Hostmaster:  lighten up, Greta.  Max is fine.  Here's what happened.  Somehow Max put the vehicle in reverse and the car went slowly in circles.  The neighbors where nonplussed but didn't call the cops till the car took out a mailbox. Eventually the cops got the car stopped. 





He could have died.  It's shameful.






Uh huh.  
Max was driving without a license, they let him off with a warning.







Round 82
Fluffy/Molly  39
Bryan/Cyndi  38

Portrait of F.C.



Update on Feral Cat.  He's still visiting the homestead regularly.




Since he is unwilling to sit for a photograph, we must settle for this artless rendering.

I Seem to have been Adopted by a Feral Cat

This scrawny orange cat kept appearing on the trail near the clothes line.  It occurred to me that he might help out with the mouse problem.  Mice in the house really bothers me.





To encourage this obviously hungry cat to draw closer, I put a bowl of cat food at the end of the path.  Little by little I moved the bowl closer to the house. 





The cat hangs around more now.  







Haven't seen any mouse turds in the house for some time.
