Look closely, how many?


Deer winter season continues until January 13th, but not on Wildlife and Parks areas, which is where this group is gathered.     I doubt they are smart enough to know to stay on the KWPs areas right now but sometimes we wonder.

The deer in the picture are about 375 yards from our back sliding door.  When we saw them gathered this morning, I gently slid open the door and snapped about five pictures.  It appears from their sudden alertness they either heard the door open or my camera click. If they did hear me, that is amazing at that distance.  Count 8?

Oregon 35 K State 17

The Fiesta Bowl is over.  Once Oregon gained the momentum at the end of the first half, they never looked back.

This is the kind of information I put in here just to document it for myself down the line.  By now, everyone who cares knows the score.

I was going to put a picture of a new plant Chip  gave me, only I don’t know the name of it.  It is a milkweed and I’m growing it in the house.   I’ll get the name tomorrow.

So, off to bed.

You’ve gotta Love 2013

Come into my living room and tell me what you think of my new display on the wall that extends into the basement.

IMG_2151I asked the family about the order of the words, they agreed it is usually “Live, Laugh, Love.”  Actually, it is the way I had them placed at the time we had the discussion. For some reason, as I lived with the display, something bothered me.

Laugh belongs in the middle.  Laughter and smiles are an important part of my life.  I think that comes from growing up in a family that cried more from laughing than any other reason.  Yes, Laugh belongs right there in the middle of Live and Love.

The more I looked at the other two words, though, the more it seemed Love should be first.  Love first and foremost, then Live life to the fullest!  

These are three wonderful words no matter the order and they are my hope for all of you this New Year of 2013.
