A regular visitor


This sleek doe regularly visits our yard, munching on grass and our little clover patch.  I suspect her nice coat is partly a result of her healthy eating out of the garden. She has  refined tastes for beans and lettuce, only choosing young tender plants.  I suspect she also enjoyed more than a few grapes—can we blame her?

Is this a problem?


I doubt it.  There are plenty of deer elsewhere.  Despite her tracks in my garden all summer, I would miss her visits to our yard.  And, I think Dan agrees.

More Colorado/New Mexico pictures

Here is a link to more pictures taken in New Mexico and Colorado.  It is obvious that I especially like Aspens in the fall. 

My picture hosting site encouraged me to update to a new and improved photo viewing experience.  As far as I can see, I have lost the ability to put a slide show here.  Maybe that is just as well for some who have a slower internet connection.  There is now an option to either run a slideshow in the upper right hand corner or scroll down through the pictures.  I put comments on some of them, but I think they only show up on the scroll. 

Isn’t this weather gorgeous?  It appears the mountain trip will take the place of our usual Hermann fall trip.  I will miss all the beautiful trees but we are still trying to get our front deck finished. 

You never know about us, though.  It is getting seriously close to the time for winterizing the RV.  I sure hate to do that before one last roadtrip.  We’ll see.

Some things never change—some do

I have a lot to write about, so I will begin with the most recent.  Here are a few pictures from our Gage Park visit today. 

These pictures are all taken on the concrete animals that have been there for ages.  Our 40 plus year old kids played on them—I should dig out those pictures. 

Anyway, here are a few pictures—some from today and some a few years ago.
