Odd Bits Of This And That
Upper Left: It's not unusual to see deer around PFHQ, but to find one lying down and cozy only a few feet (about 20) from the back porch is pretty rare. Bear saw her first from the top of the porch steps and I just put my hand on him as he trembled, all ears up and alert. A brief distraction with a dog biscuit allowed her to finally get up and gallop off sans chien.
Lower Left: The pond this week. The water has crept up to about knee deep across the bottom and is remaining pretty stable. High hopes abound for some further filling.
Upper Right: Every decade or so, the local electric Co-Op clears the right of way around their powerline into PFHQ. This has to be done of course, but it is a shocking scar that will gradually soften.
Lower Right: Junior posing in his football regalia. We get to watch him play in St. Augustine (my home town) this season when our team goes up against the St. Joseph's Academy Flashes. That should be fun since I hope to take his Grandparents to watch him play.
