    fairy tale light in the woods this morning.

    didn't really capture it with the cell phone, but you can trust me, or ask fergus, it was nice.

    Ah, summer:





    There is a direct flight from Missoula to Oakland, imagine that. My friend Ellen met me at the airport, the stadium is then 10 minutes away, comp tickets from her nephew who is a Moneyball number cruncher for the A's, beer, brot, and peanuts free because it was my birthday and Ellen paid.

    The first pro game I saw was 1973 in Oakland, during the era Vida Blue/Catfish Hunter/Rollie Fingers/Bert Campaneris/Reggie Jackson. They lost to the Royals. They lost again to the Royals on Thursday, the night of this photo.

    cherry picking time, a couple gallons from the tree that shades the front of the new barn.

    could probably fill a five gallon bucket with ripe ones today from our various trees. remarkable contrast from last year when the birds got them all.

    anybody do cherry preserves? theres only so many fresh cherries a guy can eat before, ah, um, he needs to stop.

    We bottle them but we have to buy the cherries- can't get them to grow well here. First you need an antique cherry stone remover............

    We have one cherry tree. It’s a sour/tart type but the fruit has a really nice flavor when conditions are right. Tedious to deal with the pitting though for any kind of cooking or preserving.

    Last year that tree was loaded with tasty fruit that mostly went to the birds. It inspired me to get a steam juicer in anticipation of taking advantage of this year’s fruit. Figured on making juice (duh), and trying some reduction syrup kind of thing, and maybe try to make some fruit-leather from the pulp.

    decided this time to give them away, norma and i will spread the cherry wealth at work tomorrow. fresh, organic, sprayless, spotless. kind of unreal, that's how good they are.

    norma's flat, a dozen perfect pints for the clinic staff:

    Lovely photo Elf. Last Monday the wife and I drove several hundred kilometres north and we left early- we travelled 215 kilometres before sunrise. The last sliver of the old moon looked exactly like that but ahead of us to the right and not far above the horizon. It was still dark with just enough light to be able to make out the high ridge to our right. The wife suddenly said "Hey look at the stars below the moon- they're all in a straight line!" There were four equally spaced then a larger gap and three more slightly more widely spaced and much brighter, and all in a dead straight line. We were wondering why we hadn't heard mention of such an event on the TV. We turned away to the west for a minute as the road followed the contour of the hills, and when we resumed out course they were gone! Had us scratching our heads, but when the first glow of the new day appeared it was behind the hills at ninety degrees to the line of "stars" we had seen. A few days before I watched Elon Musks spacecraft deploy a number of small satellites, stacked like plastic chairs, and which later on spread out and take up their positions in the sky. So we deduced that what we had seen was the sun very briefly catching the satellites as they separated and headed towards their designated positions. Not something we'll ever see again I would imagine. JayInOz

    These two elk climbed on top of this abandoned sod cabin, and died.






    Just look at how desolate this place is:

    Drove to the road’s end. Beautiful scenery of the mountains and the bay. Lots of dandelions.

    fledgling barn swallow. this guy went ploop out of the nest right next to me as i was under the lean-to picking patties. parental unit was zipping all around distressed. he is not ready to fly.

    if you put a fledgling swallow back in the nest will the nest be abandoned?

    the nest with a sibling perched on the edge:

    I am a very long way from an avid birder, but I have been told that you can return chicks to the nest as long as you don't transfer any 'human smell' to the chick. Put on dirty gloves and scoop the chick up in a bundle of straw to insulate it from you, and think good thoughts. Good luck to you, but more luck to the chick...
    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    i was unsure but norma wasn't. "bring me a ladder". "im tired and already sitting on the tractor".

    she wore her gardening gloves

    4DE62D4C-B3BB-4819-95CE-55C8FC7C4AB4.jpg

    but the second she put the chick in the nest the other one jumped!

    i wonder if they were prompted by the fairly extreme heat (for june) we had yesterday. must be hot under that tin roof. maybe one pushed the other out, "quit touching me, it's too hot!" i dunno.

    Here in town there are bridges over the Clark Fork river with strings of swallow nests. If the chicks were to jump, they would have to make like ducklings. There must be data on that, likelihood of jumping correlated with likelihood of surviving the jump.
