Yesterday morning I caught all five ground squirrels feeding beneath the shepherd’s crook bird feeder station. This is after watching a black cat make off with one in his mouth the day before! A bit after I took this photo, we watched Carl try to catch one of the squirrels–he missed, doggone it! But at least he was out there trying! LOL

We do get a wonderful selection of wildlife parading through our back yard. This morning I caught Red-headed Woodpeckers at the neighbor’s feeder.


I happened to catch the one when he was looking my way. It’s almost as if he’s saying, “Yes?” “Can’t you see I’m eating here?”

Then this afternoon, we suddenly noticed a huge gathering of horse trailers and RV’s in the meadow across the way. Tonight, they have a campfire and huge spotlights going. We’re not sure what the occasion is all about, but there’s more than a few people in attendance.


There have been times we’ve watched people set up an archery range with straw bale targets. They’re there for a day or two and then they leave. We usually see them in the late summer/early fall. The property is all part of the Broome Ranch, which extends all the way to Keene on the north side of the highway.

Not much else going on — I’ll close this with blessings to all — be safe, be well, and please by happy. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them.

      I think they must be horse owners because of all the horse trailers. I can do some asking around to see who knows what… good idea! 😉 I looked just now and they have a huge tent up — getting interesting!
