See them there, wayyyyy down the road beyond the bridge?
I had seen the big tom earlier in the day, but did not have the
camera close. There are open fields on either side, and a good creek.
He was waiting for everyone to cross.
Along behind them came a HUGE tom with a long beard. He ran across fast,
and across the field on the right, disappearing into the woods.
Sorry for the blur, I had to put my lens of my point and shoot Canon as close as I could...
Most flew over this fence....
Except these three, whom I followed very slowly up the road until they came
to the driveway you can JUST see on the right, where they ran in and ran through the yard.
And back to their friends!
Here is Keith behind the old house this afternoon when he came over to get the
dryer we were taking to my son Jeff. I had failed to tell him how soft the yard was there... I didn't realize he was going to try to back up to the never-used back door.
See the truck on the right? He was down six inches at least at this point, and
even though my friend Mary and I had put wood under the wheels, he
couldn't get any purchase.
Heartland Tow had him out in about four minutes... whew!
We managed to load the dryer, a bookcase and a couple of chairs, with
Mary's help... thanks, Mary!
Delivered safely to Independence, Keith and I are having a peaceful
evening. I am going to go let the birds out in the morning and come right back here, and
dedicate the day to putting away and breaking down boxes.
We have had a little much-needed rain, and still have clouds out there tonight...
so maybe a little more rain tomorrow. We can use it!
