Lex, Kristi, and Katelyn

They are all safely back in South Carolina now and we sit looking at the toys thinking how fun it was to have them all here for awhile.

Mother turns 100

Thanks Tom Poth for taking this picture of Mother with her children Patricia and me at the party celebrating her one hundredth birthday. No one ever had a Mother better than ours.

Upstaters in the Brush Country...

Katelyn got her Daddy to pose with her at her tree.

The Poths out for a spin.

Ok, so who's going to be the first to pull me? You told me this is where my Daddy used to play.

Go Daddy Go!

Am I a ranch girl?

When the fish aren't biting, hook the alligator...

You can see, it was fun for awhile then I cut him loose.

A new set of antlers are grown each year

The new growth of antlers on whitetailed deer happens quickly. I've heard that it is some of the fastest growing tissue known. It too is exciting to me to watch and see the changes in each deer from year to year.

Where else but in small town Texas will you see this in your yard?

After going down town I returned to spot this unusual bird in our yard. It had me stumped for a minute because it was all white. I soon came to realize that it was a guinea fowl. When I went back outside to get a picture of it, it wanted no part of me and fled. It soon flew up into one of the large oak trees and kept a watchful eye on me as I snapped a few pictures. In the past we have seen other things on our lot..... coyotes, racoons, opossums, mexican eagles, tree ducks, hawks, and for years we had an owl that would hoot us to sleep at night. I guess then why not a guinea.
