Momma & Baby Crow ~ Maggie & Harley ~ French Fries

Good 50º clear 76% humid morning. Full moon. Be careful!

Yesterday was the JCRW luncheon. After all was said and done and the BBQ committee meeting over it was 2:30 and Costco just didn't sound fun anymore. I stopped in at the Grange and got a deer block, the post office to mail cards, and the market for a few quick items. Home and Maggs was happy happy I returned. It was pretty warm then, 90º, so she was glad to come in the house and cool off. Although, she was laying in cool grass in the shade when I got home.  
My Italian son,
Alex sent me the following funny...

Two rednecks are sittin' in a bar drinkin' ...
One says to the other, "Did you know that elks have sex 10 to 15 times a day?"
"Aw crap ..." , says his friend, "and I just joined the Knights of Columbus."
 So, earlier in the day I go in the fridge for a hard-boiled egg and pull out this monster....


Mr. Double Yolk.  Just the size of that egg was amazing. OUCH!!!

Out back there was Momma Crow and Baby Crow begging for Mom to feed her/him...

I've only noticed one crow baby in the area. Parents are very protective. Mom was giving me the eye...

Then a couple of the deer showed up.. These are yearlings... Probably the children of the mom with the spotted twins.

I was just walking around outside and here is this sunflower that just popped out of a pot on the porch. No doubt hidden in there by one of the squirrels... It was just dancing in the breeze. Really needed some music...


August 12th is the 224th day of the year... with only 141 days remaining. This is the peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower. The full moon is blocking the view though. The ideal way to view this is to find a spot that is shaded from the moon, lay on your back, and make wishes on all the meteors that fly by!
