Grey Squirrel watches me as she has breakfast

This good looking Grey Squirrel, with a slightly brownish head, cautiously kept an eye on me as she was feeding the other morning.

My wife and I enjoy the morning when this good looking Blue Jay arrives for his feeding. He’s not a bully but Sparrows, in particular, tend to fly up into the tree when he drops to the ground.

OOOPs!  This is Muffin…not Ming… loves to drink from the Bird Bath during winter months.  My wife takes a hammer to the frozen water each morning and then pours some fresh on top.

I shot this image yesterday morning as she waited to hop on the feeder. (feeder hook and cord visible on the left side of the shot.  She’s always at the feeeder with her mate seen on the previous post.

This handsome gentleman is a regular at our garden feeder…feeder is just below him on another branch.  He spends time flitting back and forth from the feeder to the ground and seems content most of the time.

You’re never to old to learn

For the past couple of months my wife and I have been having trouble charging up our Samsung Tab E’s.  Our USBs weren’t charging quickly enough to suit us.  We thought something was wrong with the Tablets.  Then I decided to switch to our cell phone USBs.  Right away the Tablets began to charge more quickly.  Meanwhile, when I tried to download images from my desktop computer to my Samsung Tab E only one in four or five would download.  Finally, today I switched to my Cell Phone USB to transfer the images and it worked immediately.  It had been the Samsung USB connector causing the problems all along.  So, if you’re having charging or image transfer problems check your USB connector.  You may need to switch as we did.

Hope this helps someone?

Here’s some Snow for you

A Snowy November Day_edited-1_wm

I shot this a few days ago as a large storm was moving through Central to Northern Illinois.   We received about six inches in the Peoria area and further north near Chicago they got as much as 14 inches.

Mid-October Snow

Mid October Snow_edited-1

I’ve been around for 75 years and I’ve never seen it snow in Mid-October in Peoria County, Illinois.  It was 42 degrees at ground level so it must have been really cold up in the sky for the snow to reach ground level.  It did not stick but it was a sight to see.

Ming and Muffin enjoying a quiet time

Ming and Muffin having a quiet time

Once in a great while Ming will sit and, seemingly, enjoy Muffin’s (our Feral Cat) company.  It’s rare, but as you see, it does happen.  Usually Ming is scratching at the door or window and Muffin darts off to the driveway.  Cats?
