    The Rock we hit that tipped us over is called "Mother" cause that is what you scream when you have to now make the 3 foot drop to the bottom of the fall on your but!

    to voltz and "simpler times!"

    Thanks for reminding me of a great memory.

    I know what "going over feels like". In my younger days, on the upper Chattahoochee River in the middle of nowhere in North Georgia, my friend and I had the experience but it was over 12 feet into the pool below.

    As we approached the sound of the fall really tired and 6-8 hours on the river, we saw a group of "hippies" camping and asked them if we could continue instead of walking ahead to see what the drop was. They said "Yes"!

    I am sure the falls called Mother is over 3 feet maybe 5 ..it is on the big Piney river in Arkansas...when we get to mother we pull our canoes up to the shore..and watch each other go thru it one at a time..its is only like 6 -10 feet across so it was my brother who took the famous picture :) was standing on a rock ledge really close s the water-proof cameras have a very short focal length...but god it is fun when the weather is right...

    The water was a little down so we had to paddle more then normal..we were so wiped when we made camp 12 miles later we all crashed hard after a super quick meal LOL

    so that night before the run..we hung cloth curtains and played"Deliverance: on a big screen LOL I dude from Arkansas came up and watch it with us and he said in his Arkansas draw "You Boy'z just aint Right" where the frack are you from anyways? LOL

    Somewhere I have the sign that we all are holding up..called the Wichita River Dogz! :p

    Yesterday, I swear my bedroom ceiling fan was talking. I have heard many two word phases from it over the past few years. Maybe I should start writing them down to see if they make any sense. The fan is one of the original Hunter fans that have the oil-filled heavy motors. I have often thought fans, vacuums, and other mechanical devices should have the option of "playing music" (not by adding speakers via Bluetooth).

    I had 3 of those fans in my previous house. They were great fans, moved a lot of air. Much better than today's fans.

    Just think, Chris. Before all this *** happened, we would have met in just a couple of days. My wife, friends, our kiddos and I would be in Port Canaveral. We obviously had to cancel that and the St. Augustine trips as well.

    I saw a video earlier today where all of the ships out at sea, harbored in one area, began to all honk their horns in a show of solidarity. Most of them were reportedly competing companies but they are all in this together.

    This would have been my first cruise and it was a B-Day present from my wife to celebrate the 50th mile marker in my life's journey.

    I was thinking about that Tom @treitz3 as I was out there looking at the ships. In the top and bottom photo in the distance and across the Port from the cranes is your ship the Harmony. They sent 317 crew home today.
    Some of the companies are chartering flights to get some of thier crewmembers home.

    Well happy birthday from PCF.

    In that last photo, if you zoom into where the cranes are you can see the SpaceX ships with thier giant nets open, they catch the rocket payload fairings. Zoom in a bit more through the legs of the cranes and you can see a 5th cruise ship sitting there.

    Thanks man. My birthday isn't until the end of next month but I appreciate it. We are still deciding whether or not we will take another cruise next year. We may just take the money back instead of possibly losing it altogether if they fold.

    They did offer us a 125% credit good for a year and a half but during spring break next year, that ship is not going to be in service (or it is going to another set of destinations, I forgot which it was).

    This has got to be devastating for so many people in that (and other) industries. Sad.

    Bad news for our local squirrels;

    My neighbor pointed out a pr. of med. size hawks hanging out in a tree across the street and down one yard. We didn't know they were here to stay...

    Turns out, the neighbor whose tree they were sitting in, spotted them mating in a tree on the other side of the neighbor who spotted them first. We watched them sitting in that tree for 1/2 an hour the other day. Yep, there's a good size nest about 3 houses down from me and across the street. I also saw one of them other day flying over my neighbor's house. :)

    Well I was in the back of my cottage getting ready to cut a board and heard a weird loud chirping. It was CLOSE and above me. It was one of those hawks sitting high up overlooking this field where tons of squirrels play. We haven't seen many squirrels hopping around lately and I know why now. There was dead silence from all birds. If it's silent, maybe a hawk is sitting somewhere.

    Most of the time, black birds and blue jays squawk continuously until a Hawk leaves the neighborhood.

    My wife saw some squirrels this afternoon and fed 4 by hand. I have a bad feeling now...

    Goodbye squirrels! :#

    If another virus is this fast a killer too, I'll bet the same scenario will be activated to slow it down if possible.

    Hawk on the Bluebird house. Looking at chipmunks below. This was taken last spring.

    Tony, I have watched many hawks in my backyard and in the country, and I have never seen one actually grab a squirrel.

    A few years ago, a "mom" with her two young birds observing tried to grab a squirrel high up in a pine tree in the backyard, and the squirrel always alluded her.

    I had two pet Peking ducks in the backyard and the largest hawk I have ever seen killed the male duck which was very large too. My cats alerted me at a window what was happening.

    I wish we had more chipmunk predators here -- heck,I wish we had more whistlepig predators! :p

    This guy (or lady, who knows?) got a little meta with the idea of the bird feeder. :)

    I have a gazillion chipmunks myself. Holes and tunnels everywhere. Maybe I should get some outside cats, they'll kill the little bastages won't they ?
