Stoic survivors

Gentle herds of herbivores

Wild on the landscape

Tara feeds the deer that visit her property, as well as the foxes and raccoons.

 

Yes, deer will eat your shrubs and flowers, but there are certain species they will overlook, unless they are starving.  Read up and save your garden.

Brodie shares about the “Big Rehearsal”

Who knew?  Stand-ins for the President Elect and the coming First Lady…stand-ins for VP Elect and his wife…practice…practice…practice walks down the steps of the US Capitol to the podium… to assigned seats…walking down Pennsylvania Avenue…waves to imaginary crowds…one big, huge dress rehearsal for the nation’s 58th Presidential Inaugural swearing-in and the Inaugural Parade.  This past Sunday was a dry-run… a stunning effort to address this immensely…monumental logistical, security, protocol, media coverage, crowd control quadrennial inaugural event.  As a golden who does not like to miss anything…here’s the schedule of events…Hail to the Chief!

Uncomplicated thoughts: America

So very proud.
