Good 58º cloudy morning.........
The clouds started coming in yesterday, very breezy, and by noon it was dark.
We kept heating up. Soon it was 81º and by 2:30 it was 87º!
Predictions starting yesterday....
Up in the pasture was a turkey vulture....wings out.... with turkeys walking by casually...
After the pastures were brush-hogged, there probably were some critters the vulture was interested in.
And Mr. Dove sittin' on the fence....
Happy Throw Back Thursday...

Penguin Nils Olav has been an honorary member and mascot of the Norwegian King's Guard since 1972. After over 35 years of ‘duty' he was knighted at Edinburgh Zoo. During the ceremony, Nils had a sword dubbed on each side of his head, where his shoulders should be, to confirm his regimental knighthood. A citation from King Harald of Norway was read out, which described Nils as a penguin 'in every way qualified to receive the honor and dignity of knighthood.'
