I know I just got done hassling everyone for donations, but it's always for a good cause! Here's my Tour Page

Alum Creek in the fall


IMGP1536, originally uploaded by Petie_in_Cbus.

A few weeks ago we took the whitewater kayak and my new-to-me mtb bike out to Alum. We didn't do all that much kayaking, and I mainly worked on getting the bike to shift, but it was a nice lazy Sunday all-in-all.

Possibly a perk of living with a feline is it wearing this skark costume.

Just a lil guy

Front View of the lil Climber

So the corn that randomly sprouted (now dying) in the frontyard now seats this guy.

And about 5 other stalks have sprouted up in the last few weeks. Also pulled about 3 liters of green tomatoes from the plant in the front yard. Seems that the lazy gardening is more fruitful than the tentative gardener.

Last weekend we headed to Mohican to kayak & this little birdie was hoping around the campsite, eating the discarded bread.

Well, it didn't have a beak, and look like it hadn't for a while (ever?), but had a long tongue. Can kind of see it here
