Wildlife at Peeble's Island

Popster is in Florida.....freezing his butt I might add.....so Molly & I are footloose & fancy free.
Friday was a fairly nice day so I decided to go to Peeble's Island.  Jessica & boyfriend Tyler tagged along.  Tyler is as much into photography as me so he was like a little kid in a candy shop
If you look closely here this tree was home to lots & lots of crows.....a murder of crows!

We spotted what we thought was a pair of bald eagles.....that was when I wanted to tie a rope on Tyler so he didn't fall over the edge in excitement.
My tree is still surviving!
Watching Tyler in action made me realize I was watching myself!  The two of us would have driven Popster crazy!
A couple of deer down by the water
This one decided to flee


As we were driving away I had to slam on the brakes & throw the car in park because Tyler spotted this.
We're thinking a golden eagle??  I didn't have my zoom lens with me so this is a good as I could get. 

Then came the thrill of the day.  We were driving home along the river when we saw a couple cars pulled over so I did another slam-park & jumped out of the car,  Not more than 8 feet away was a bald eagle perched in a tree....it was incredible to see it up close but unfortunately I wasn't quick enough to get a picture before he flew away.

  1. Love the photos. I'm guessing by the confession of the slam-park technique, that Popster is here in Florida getting treatment for Whiplash. Crazy photogs

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.

MISTAKE #1

I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.

MISTAKE #2!

About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me something.....how did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in August......to wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.







Needless to say at that poin…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BIG BROTHER

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
