Deer in the way


One early-summer day, we were driving around a curve, and spied these deer. It had been raining a lot for the week, so there was high water on both sides of the road. I drove slow so as not to scare them too bad, letting them take their time.

The car behind me drove slow, too. Another car was driving too quickly and had to squeal the brakes. Finally, mom found a more solid spot, and they took off into the woods. I suppose by going so slow, I was causing a risk to other drivers, but really, until the deer got off the road, they were also causing a risk to other drivers.

Happy Friday! As always, check out the wonderful animal pictures linked for Friday Ark at The Modulator.

Just a couple photos

Kitty was sitting on the table, outside. I thought it would be nice to take her picture. How cute!
I planted this hibiscus, this year. It was from one of the local nurseries. I wanted to get some of the non tropical, so I wouldn't have to take them in for the winter. It turns out, the blooms on this plant are dinner plate size. I plan to plant another one, next year.
As I walked out the door, to go to work, I spied this little visitor. He was hanging out on the door. Lucky for me, I had the camera.
I hardly ever see quail. When I spied these two, crossing the road, I reached for the camera!

Hope you all are doing well. I don't get on very often, anymore. I figured I had the time, this morning, because The Walking Dead marathon is on. Might as well post, while the commercials are on:)

Wildlife photos.

If I get on the road before any of the neighbors do, I am sometimes rewarded by seeing this owl along the road. I've learned that I can get it to fly away, if I sit and take pictures of it. I tried to get a picture of it flying away, but so far, no luck.
I figured I might as well upload the other wildlife I saw during the last couple months. I missed Friday, so Happy Sunday! As always, check out the wonderful animal pictures linked for Friday Ark at The Modulator.

Friday cat blogging early: Before and after


Parker Dmitri is ready for summer. I think the other cats are jealous, though. She prances around like a poodle, now that she doesn't have all that hair weighing her down!

Happy Friday! As always, check out the wonderful animal pictures linked for Friday Ark at The Modulator. (I said it was early:).

New Cat in Town

There's a new cat in town.  This is Dan D Lion.  He arrived here last summer.  He stayed near, but I could never catch him, until this year.  I tried to live trap him, but caught an opossum.  I gave up on the live trap when winter arrived.  Finally, this spring, he overcame his fear.  I gave him some food, and one day, he came up close and rubbed his head and body under my hand. 

I now have another cat.  He went to the vet for his shots, but can't get fixed until he gets a booster shot - 30 days after the initial shots.  Ten days after that, he gets to have surgery.  The other outside cats (Midnight being one of the as she is inside/outside) will be happy if the surgery stops him from chasing them.

The best deer pictures I've taken!  I was surprised they came out so well.

I haven't been online because my internet is not fast.  It seems as though it takes an hour to post something.  Since the computer stays off, too, things pile up on the keyboard:) and has to be moved/cleaned up before the computer can be booted up.

I'll have to try to get online more often.

Kitty TV









I've been taking pictures of hummingbirds, instead of cats.  At least, the kitties get to watch these little birds, and lick their chops.

Midnight snow

This snow  fell in April.  I think it was on the 11th.  As you can see, Midnight is not happy... and of course, I had to grab my camera and snap a shot:)  Once the photo was taken, she was able to come inside and warm up.

It took a while to get the computer up and running.  It has to be turned off, because it hums.  It's been doing that for quite some time, but now that it is farther from the tv, and I don't sit at it as much, it gets turned off, because I prefer to leave the tv volume low.

Friday Cat Blogging - Black and white


Parker Dmitri was happy just laying on the chair, when the fearless Midnight decided to join her.  Parker Dmitri wasn't so happy, after that.

Friday Cat Blogging - Midnight

It looks like I haven't put anything out here since August. I'm still around, but it's been busy busy busy. Midnight showed up one day, so I decided to keep her. She was just a bitty kitten. She's about five months old. She got to go to the vet for initial shots, then back to the vet for another shot, then back to the vet for fixing, then back to the vet for stitches removal. You know what? She's still here. It must be the Fancy Feast.

Happy Friday! As always, check out the wonderful animal pictures linked for Friday Ark at The Modulator.

Where is Oldwhitelady?

I'm sorry I haven't posted anything, since June.  I was getting ready to move to the country.  It sure took a lot of time and effort...and money. 

My mobile home was moved, set up and tied down.  Now, I have to put the skirting back on.  So far, we've put almost all of the section that attaches to the trailer, that holds the skirting, back on.  Boy, was that a chore!  It was like a puzzle, finding all the screw holes that fit each piece.  Now, there's another piece that nails into the ground, that has to be placed, before skirting can be fitted.  Since the trailer is not at the same depth as before, we will have to cut skirting, and buy more.  Whew!  So far, I had the land cleared, a lagoon dug, the piers dug and poured, the mobile home moved, electric turned on, and Internet set up. 

I still don't have water.  I've checked with the water company, and it will cost a huge sum.  They marked it out a couple weeks ago, but I've heard nothing, since.  My cousin called me yesterday, and suggested a well.  I really don't want to go that route, because I think the water might be polluted, knowing the background of the acreage to the side of me.  I'm getting ready to call the water company, again, and find out if they can do it, and if so, when. 

The ground is all bare and muddy.  We've laid down some grass seed and a small amount of hay.  Hope it grows.  I also hope to be online, more, now that so much has been accomplished.

Friday Cat Blogging - Keeping Cool

Parker Dmitri got to get a shave and bath, while at her Primary Physician's office.  When she went in, she was full of real thick hair and large mats.  She hated getting the trim, but she loves it now.  She reminds me of a poodle, running to and fro.  No more hiding under the table for her!

Friday Cat Blogging - What kind of face is that?

You know how I like to get action shots.  I was lucky with this one.  I can't remember if Werro was trying to yawn, or what, but this face is sure cute!
