This is just crazy!

Love those fall colors!
Signs of Spring are showing up around here. Robins have returned, birds and frogs are singing, trees and bushes have blooms and we have spotted earth worms on top of the soil.
Before long it will be time to mow and I will get to enjoy that amazing smell of freshly mowed green grass. I wish someone would make scented candles to smell like that!
I finally had some deer show up at the trail camera and was able to get several good pictures. To my eye it appears that I have a doe with 4 young ones. We’ve seen them in the yard a few times now eating the grass which is starting to turn green.
It appears that we’ve got a pair of red fox that live here on our property.
This weekend I am back in Missouri to close on our home. Considering that I was so close I took the opportunity to go see my niece and nephew. As dad and I were driving along my brothers road, a rural road out in the country, I spotted a very large bird take flight. It had been along side the road ahead of us and began flying directly away. I quickly spotted the white tail feathers and knew I was seeing a bald eagle!
We watched as if flew off a short distance and landed in a large tree off the side of the road. We stopped and enjoyed the rare sight of a bald eagle in this area. It put up with us for awhile before it took flight and disappeared over the hill.
This was the second time in as many years I’ve seen a bald eagle in this area. The first one I sighted was at a considerable distance while I was deer hunting. Now that I’m moving to Missouri I hope I’ll have more opportunities to see this magestic symbol of our Nation.
Over the weekend I made the trip into LA to take the NRA Basic Pistol Shooting instructor class. It was a long couple of days, but I completed the course with flying colors. I am proud to say I am now an NRA certified instructor for basic pistol shooting!
