Good 19º morning. Everything, and I mean everything is frozen!!! Brought in the hummingbird feeders and hopefully they will thaw fast. Birdies won't be happy.
I went out on the porch to take pictures of the frozen 'tundra' and there were 3 coyotes!!
The last one is the coyote who has been hanging out here for a year or more. Still limping.
A reminder re the Toys for Tots... Brian has the barrel in his office... State Farm, 1610 Allen Creek in Grants Pass. His phone 541-472-5201. If you have toys and can't get to GP I can pick them up. Just let me know.
Last night's game....

Go For A Ride Day
As the holidays approach, life becomes chaotic, and perhaps a bit stressful. Take a breather, and go for a relaxing ride. You don't need a destination to enjoy this day. But, you certainly can bring family or friends along for company.
The means of transportation can be anything. Sure, a car, bus, or motorcycle ride may immediately come to mind. Here are some other ways of riding, that may prove more fun than the family vehicle:Take a sleigh ride.Ride a horse.
Ride a horse-drawn carriage.
Snowmobile rides are always "cool".
A bicycle is a great, way to ride and exercise.
A boat ride, if your are a warmer climate.
Doesn't a plane ride to a sunny vacation spot sound like fun!?
