    For eBird day ...

    This Steller’s Jay has been hanging around for a few weeks. Quite the character. One of its calls mimics a loud cat-like “mee-oow”. Messes with the cat’s head. Heck, messed with my head the first few times I heard it. Had me looking up in the trees looking for a cat.

    We have a young guinea fowl that makes the same screeching, scratching noise every two seconds for fifteen minutes at a time, and it always reminds me of first year metal work at high school- a bunch of disinterested twelve and thirteen year old boys trying to shape useless crap with completely worn out files and hacksaw blades. The teacher would say "Stop work. Can I have your attention please..." And we'd try to keep filing quietly because we knew that if we stopped the piece of sheet we were working on would cool down and then the worn out files wouldn't cut at all. That was a long time ago!

    Around here it's ******* tobacco weed or sometimes taiwanese/flowering cherry. (The real name for the TW is woolly nightshade .)
    Or gorse.
    Looking forward to the rum later on.

    I too thought Blackberry.
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    Away for a few days, I came back to find something wrong with my trees.

    I think there's a key word hidden in the last sentence. I might be wrong though...

    ^ Sunflowers.

    I fell asleep early last night. Woke up at midnight and could feel the quiet outside that comes with snow. That was nice. Until I realized I had forgotten to bring in all my potted veggie starts for the garden; tomatoes, peppers, cukes … They had an inch of snow on them and it was still coming down as I shuffled them inside. Gave the horse and donkeys a midnight hay snack and had myself a beer.

    Nice sunset tonight from Whaler Bay on Mayne island. Hoping to be heading up that channel in a few days time. / Jim

    A scrap of redwood, formerly part of a porch rail post, sitting on the tablesaw, after being ripped on the bandsaw.

    Not here in VT - but the grandkids in FL. Too bad they're not having any fun.

    Rolling Fork, Mississippi which Muddy Waters claimed as his hometown although he was most likely born west of there toward the Mississippi River.

    fergus has taken to napping on the most trafficked piece of floor in the house. can't go anywhere in the house without stepping over him, he cracks an eye open each time to make sure you aren't doing something interesting.

    Inspired by Joe's flowers I found this 3 by 3 array of sunflowers, rare in nature:

    but only if you don't understand the nature of infinite numbers. there are an infinite number of 3 by 3 sunflower arrays, some with bees, some without.

    Does he have a phone? Maybe he is Facebook friends with Lucy? She has the advantage of 93pounds worth of bat-faced camel body, to REALLY jam up things.
    Her specialty is doorways and hallways entrances; the real fun is when she suddenly jumps up while you are in mid straddle. The long-legged of us manage to pass safely, but the more petite often play rodeo.

    Great fun!

    I spent last week hanging out with mules.


    Gov't mule, maybe contemplating retirement.

    I think this photo needs a border/frame.
