Clouds! Yeah. No Smoke! ~ Bobcat! ~ Bad Poetry Day

Good 62º spotty clouds morning. Cooled off a little earlier last night. Was very windy early. Turned off the ac about midnight. Today clouds.... and the radar is east but don't know if the direction will continue east or turn towards us!

This area is where there are a lot of fires. Let's pray it helps with them.


Interesting.... yesterday I heard a commotion. It was a lot of tweeting and cheeping.... I looked out and in the pasture were the two hens and turkey babies.... AND a bobcat carrying one off! All the turkeys were upset. I grabbed my camera and got a couple pictures...


These critters are sooooooooo cute. They shy away from attacking humans. Mostly they go after rabbits etc. Here is a frontal picture of one...

I guess I'll know if it was a baby chick or hen the cat got when they show up for water and snacks.


From my friend and former neighbor Marie Vincent...

"Idiot sighting.... I handed the teller at my bank a withdrawal slip for $400.00. I said, "May I have large bills please?" She looked at me and said, "I'm sorry, sir, all the bills are the samesize." When I got up off the floor I explained to her........"  

Bruiser likes to lay on the back porch under the golf cart. Guess it's nice and cool there.....
