Yellowstone calendar pictures

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

Time to assemble the annual Yellowstone calendar.   This year I had a bit of a deadline (and not the shipping deadline this year!).  The company I ordered from (Zazzle) was having a 44% off deal, which expires around 3am.  Unfortunately, because of my grandfather’s death, I never did get around to processing the pictures from […]

cec’s day off

Monday, November 16th, 2009

I thought about titling this “VD Day” for reasons explained below, but as K pointed out, my mom reads this blog.  More to the point, as I noted, my mom has a dirty mind – which is where most of her children got our sense of humor, so she would absolutely get it.  Anyway, I […]

Last night, I realized that K had quite a few baby animals around the house and that I hadn’t posted any pictures.  So, without further ado, may I present the cute ones: The first picture is of a young opossum.  He and his siblings were in one of our outdoor enclosures, but he didn’t seem […]

Vacation notes (3 of N)

Sunday, June 7th, 2009

May 24: Memorial day weekend is in full swing and there are idiots everywhere.  I swear that the older I get, the more I sympathize with my father’s dislike of crowds.  We braved a bit of the crowd (keeping in mind that we’re already in the least crowded part of the park) and went up […]

Vacation notes (2 of N)

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009

May 20: In the morning, we saw a small herd of bighorn sheep near the Yellowstone Picnic Area.  Later on, we saw a grizzly bear hanging out in the Lamar Valley: sleeping, grazing and hanging out.  Heading back into the cabin for dinner, we talk to our host.  He’s going through a nasty divorce which […]

Vacation notes (1 of N)

Monday, June 1st, 2009

As mentioned previously, K and I have been out on vacation for the past two weeks – no phone (okay, there was voicemail), no email, and really very little in the way of computers.  I did take some notes, because, unfortunately, my memory is exactly what it used to be: bad. May 16: An inauspicious […]

William Wallace on wildlife releases

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

They may take our rehabilitation bins, but they’ll never take… our FREEDOM! On Sunday, K release some baby water turtles that she had been over-wintering.  Fortunately, we’re all of a mile from a good place at which to release turtles, Jordan Lake, so we didn’t have to drive too far. The big one in the […]

Some of the more social people from my high school class in Louisiana are apparently putting together a reunion.  They’ve managed to track down maybe 90+% of the class and have just sent out a (scanned?) copy of the senior class photo.  I defy you to find more 80’s hair in a picture.  The sad […]

Snow pictures

Monday, January 26th, 2009

Last week (on Inauguration Day no less), we got about 7″ of snow out at the house.  I just uploaded the pictures this morning.  Some of my favorites are below, the rest are in the gallery. If nothing else, the dogs sure did seem to enjoy the snow.  🙂 Sale thin frame and unusual delivery […]

front yard birding

Monday, January 12th, 2009

Using a bit of leftover birthday money, I bought some new camera equipment.  Nothing particularly sexy like a big long lens (what do you mean by homoerotic?).  I bought a set of carbon fiber tripod legs that weigh about 3 pounds instead of the 6 pounds of my old tripod legs – that should make […]
