These Last Few Days

I usually go to the Ag after I drop Keith off at dialysis on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. 

Friday morning, the geese were back.  The Renaissance Festival is right next 
door to us, and for six weeks after Labor Day, we have a cannon booming as they 
open and close.  The wild animals don't like it.  I don't like it. 

The geese have been away, so I was glad to see these four on Friday. 

This guy was back at the vet on Friday afternoon.  He has a badly infected ear (his right) and 
eye infection in both eyes, so we are treating both. 

He is doing okay, but we may have to get more ear meds. 

You know I love the Beatles.  I went with a good friend on Saturday night to see the Liverpool Legends at the Topeka Performing Arts Center.  Keith and I have been to several concerts there, it is a wonderful small venue.  Louise Harrison, the 85 year old sister of George Harrison, manages this group, and they have a residency in Branson.  They also sponsor a program to keep music alive in high schools, and they work with master classes with local schools in each town where they sing. 
Hayden High School was the high school for Topeka, and the band played the orchestral parts to numerous Beatle's hits in the second half.  It was wonderful. 

A snippet of "Revolution" without the band, sorry: 

We drove home through a terrible rainstorm, and it was heart-in-the-throat time. 

The jelly feeder had water in it from the rain, but look whom I saw 
drinking from it! 

I actually saw this for two days running, but.... temps are dropping here, 
and today there was a lone hummingbird left. 

On the way to the park Sunday afternoon, we saw this little guy with a big burden. 

Remember our llamas? 

Some new neighbors have moved into the neighborhood, about 12 of them! 

Uh Huh. 

It was raining when I passed the bluffs on Sunday morning on the way to church. 
I missed the most beautiful shot... an egret was winging it's way through the canyon of the creek, and I could not get the camera up before it went around the bend.   
You see the leaves are beginning to change. 

Sunday's sunset almost hurt to watch. 

Yellow and blue always go well together! 

The dogs resign themselves when I jump out of the car.

There goes Big Daddy into the pond. 

And my favorite calf. 

I think this is probably The Last One. 
I'll be surprised if I see him tomorrow. 

This one will be around for a while. 


  1. I had to look twice to be sure that I was looking at a bull and not a hippo. He's a muscular feller!

  2. Once again, you've taken some great pictures. You have a way of telling a wonderful story through your pictures.

    ...I like your neighbourhood, I've decided! YAM xx

  4. That yellow and blue picture really caught my eye. Just beautiful. Really all of your's are. It's cooled off here this week and rain is coming for us the next few days. Leaves are falling and colors are changing all around here too.

  5. Get pictures Mary Ann.
    Sorry Jester has been sick. He's a sweetie. I bet that was a good show to go see.
    It's finally cooling off a bit here. Glad to see it.

  6. Love the pic of the hummingbird drinking from the jelly bowl!

  7. You always have such beautiful pictures, of course the one of Jes is our fav. stella rose
