Captive Audience

DSC02592-2

How she knew, I have no idea, but she ran across the house like her tail was on fire and perched on the back of the sofa.  She sat, ever watchful.

This is what held her attention captive.  A five lined skink.

This skink had more problems that being stalked by a cat.  It appeared to have had a run in with a big spider web.

She Did it Again….

Our dog, Lucy, takes her job of defending her yard very seriously.

She caught this possum Saturday night.  Of the three that she has caught all have lived and that is only because they play dead.  This one was pretty small.  We brought Lucy in the house to give this little one time to make its getaway.

Northern Mockingbird

I stood and listened to this bird for quite a while.  It sang so many different bird songs, it was truly amazing.

Wild Grapes

Hoping the birds don’t eat all of them so we can see how they taste when the get ripe.

Concert Goers

Last night Glen and I went to a concert at Starlight Theater.  We saw three bands, The Tower of Power, The Steve Miller Band and Journey.  I had never heard of The Tower of Power, they were good.  The rest of the concert was awesome.  I love Steve Miller and Glen loves Journey.

Journey…..It was difficult to get a good picture of Journey because of all their lights.

It was scarey

Since Glen and I decided to put in a garden this year, I made the leap and bought a pressure canner.

Last Monday evening my mom called me and said that my step-dad brought home a big box of green beans and wanted to know if I would can them for her.  Of course I said I would.  Tuesday evening came around and I found myself in my kitchen first looking at this very intimidating pan and then at the instructions on how to use it since I had never canned anything before.

As you can see, everything went as it should…..and I didn’t blow up my kitchen :-)
