Deer Family

Below is a photo I took the other day. It’s rare that a buck comes up close to the house with a Momma and a baby deer. The baby is very young, as it still has it’s spots.

Soon the adults will be turning color and getting much darker.

A New Cash Scam

Nora has just alerted me to another scam that is sweeping the nation.

Everyone knows how Nora and I feel about animals and pets. It has come to our attention that this scan involves the involuntary use of baby ducks.

How awful to subject these young ducklings to a life of crime.

Below is a photo of the scam in action.

Hedgesville Horseman

The other day I took a side road from I-83 to Route 9. Generally I go down I-83 and get off at exit 12, then head west through Hedgesville. This time I decided to jump off I-83 at Rt 901 and take the back way in.

I came across this sculpture in someone’s backyard. I went back today to photograph it.

I don’t know what the name of it is; however I’ve dubbed it the Hedgesville Horseman.

I’ve just been informed that my goddaughter, Chrissy Gavin, is now engaged.

The lucky guy is Jon Clark.

Elizabeth Gerringer – Painting

SummerCabin.jpgNora and I were the recepients of a gift of a painting by Elizabeth Gerringer, artist.

The beautiful painting is entitled Summer Cabin and is painted in acrylics and oil, 16 x 20.

It will make a lovely addition to our home.

Nora is now deciding on the type of frame and exactly where to put in the house.

Take a minute and visit Elizabeth’s website. Be sure you see her paintings page(s). Elizabeth also maintains a blog on her website, which I designed.

Fox in Stoney Beach

Fox.jpgWe don’t live in the city, but we’re not in a rural area.

Seems like we have at least one family of fox in the area.

Nora saw a family of four about two weeks ago.

The other day I talked to a gentleman who said he saw three.

Another lady was walking by and said she saw four, then a few minutes later, saw three in a different area.

One man said he saw one climb up a tree in front of our house, attempting to get a bird.

While I don’t mind the wildlife, I feel a little uneasy with the dogs. They are hardly ever out front, but sometime bolt pass us as we open the door.

Knowing the rabies problems with fox, it is a little nerve racking.

I snapped this photo last Sunday as Nora and I drove out of the community. He was only about 15 feet from the car and was in no rush to run away.

Apparantly this is a Mexican fox. Like their human counterparts, they come into the community, take what they want, and are brazen and bold.
