    Nice. Did Jon Anderson have anything to do with that one?

    I was just outside feeding a couple of squirrels and saw 3 Hawks soaring and heading RIGHT OVERHEAD of me. They saw those 2 squirrels on my driveway I'm pretty sure. These pics are of the 3 Hawks as they were soaring away. I missed getting a shot of them just overhead. I didn't have the camera at hand.

    Well all 3 Hawks flew JUST above our yard and then slowly circularly soared back off into the far distance.

    OK...that's not good for the squirrels future! Well, I changed my seating position to the porch of the cottage.

    A couple of minutes later I see this Hawk land in this pine tree just across the street from my driveway.

    Well I still had the camera from trying to get pics of the 3 soaring hawks so I pointed the camera at the pine hoping it could focus on that Hawk in the middle of the Pine. I could see it in there, but could the camera's picture be clear and focused enough to see it too.

    It took a GREAT picture and then as I went to take another pic. from a different spot, the Hawk flew off. Then I think I see another Hawk following it. Maybe it was those that were just soaring around that flew off. Did they turn and make a B-Line right back to my driveway when I wasn't looking? I doubt it. Those 3 soared pretty far away but who knows.

    Check this out: There are TWO Hawks. I only saw the one IN THE TREE at the time I took the pic. COOL! I didn't get a good look at them as they flew away at all! But I think they are Red-shouldered Hawks by the looks of the last pic. but I didn't see any white stripes or white anything from what I saw. I liked the pic. in the list that I posted at the end but the rest of the 13 pics. don't look anything like it so I'm confused as to what kind these were. They were big though.

    Freakin' Wild Kingdom out there this morning. :|

    Mrs. H counted twenty-five turkeys and fifteen deer at one point.

    You just go ahead and let me know when you want a couple of those big brown things to disappear. Preferably with antlers...
    Where’s the KABOOM?!?! There’s supposed to be an Earth shattering KABOOM!!!

    we don't see the antler-y kind 'til later in the summer... they tend to magically disappear right about the time hunting season starts :| They're smarter than they look, it seems...

    PS We had some venison chili last night :) Venison from our son-in-law's take last fall :)
    It was very, very good.

    Tons of college kids that frequent a local burger joint LEAVE THEIR LEFTOVER whatever ON THE TABLES A LOT! They don't have the decency to take their food wrappers and baskets to the trash cans? I've seen it over a hundred times since we go there a lot.

    Are they to ABOVE cleaning up after themselves or did Momma or Daddy teach them to leave the table and not to think about cleaning up OR ( I just remembered ) to push their chair back under the table?

    Our daughter was guilty of it here in this house too. I let her Mother pick up after her and push her chair back under. I mentioned it to Nancy once or twice but the daughter never was confronted by Nancy I guess.I just don't get it.

    I see plenty of adults doing this unbelievable stuff at the burger joint too.

    Nancy and I were raised differently I guess. We even wipe down the table with a napkin and toss it as we leave. All stools are back under the table too.

    I was talking to a woman from Germany once. She was telling me about a trip she made back to her homeland. She returned to her home in Florida after several weeks in Germany.

    Upon her return, she had this sense of CREEPING MALAISE. (Intentional Floyd reference.) She didn't know what was wrong, but something felt really bad in the pit of her stomach.

    Soon after, she went to a grocery store. She was in the parking lot and witnessed someone empty their groceries from their shopping cart into their car. Then they just pushed their cart aside and drove away.

    This German woman suddenly broke down in tears. She said nobody in Germany would dream of leaving their cart that way. It was a sober reminder of all the little messed-up things she has seen in America.

    That's a pet-peeve of mine in the biggest way!

    I saw a lady once that was old and couldn't walk very well. She loaded her car and pushed her cart up a little between the cars. She left and I thought that was fine. She was old and probably hurting so I can see that. :) No problem there.

    But young people...I haven't seen any do that but I have seen a few 30 year old ladies do it about 5 times. People around here (Wilm. NC.) are pretty good about cart-corralling. ;)

    Sadly, this type of thing is becoming so prevalent among the people that were "born with a mobile device in their hands". :p

    GOOD POINT! ;)

    I still don't own one...yet. :p

    I've seen soooo many people in this burger joint looking at their I-phone THE WHOLE TIME they are eating and sitting with others. They'll look up once in a while but ...their eyes and one hand goes right back ( if it ever left ) to their phones.

    Nothing ticks me off more than that. We don't allow cell phones at the dinner table in my house.

    Don't blame the youngsters though, monkey see-monkey do, and that comes from the adults who are just as bad if not worse.
