RECORD HIGH, TIME FOR PICS


RECORD HIGH, TIME FOR PICS

Yep, it's that time again. We had a record high of 81 degrees yesterday and I went for the first-ALMOST Spring walk. It's now back in the 50's with 20-30 mph winds. Welcome to SC!!!

The weather yesterday can only mean one thing--MORE PICS FROM THE POND & WOODS!

HE'S BAAACK

SO IT'S TIME FOR THESE TO RETURN.        ALL TAKEN YESTERDAY...........

LE POND.....

LE POND GRASS...IT DOESN'T SMOKE WELL AT ALL!

FIRST--SPIDER OF THE YEAR!!!

NOTICE THE RED "GLOW" IN THE WATER.....

THIS IS THE CULPRIT.....A RED ADVERTISEMENT SIGN ACROSS 1-20 THAT YOU COULD NEVER SEE BEFORE!
POLLUTION FROM CARS IS KILLING ALL GREENERY ALONG THE INTERSTATE!

BALL & CONE . I THREW THE BALL IN LAST SPRING!

I KNEW I WOULD NEED IT FOR A PIC!

SUNSET IN PINES THAT HELD 50-70 OF THESE....SEE BELOW...

IT'S A ROBIN..AND THEY ARE ON THE WAY TO FLORIDA TO DO HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS OF DAMAGE TO THESE.....

THE BERRIES MY FRIEND MAKES HIS LIVING OFF OF. WE USED TO BE ABLE TO SHOOT THE ROBINS IN THE 60'S & 70'S. WE GAVE THEM TO PEOPLE WHO MADE ROBIN PIES FOR FOOD!

NOW THEY ARE PROTECTED, (AS A SONGBIRD) AND YOU CAN ONLY "SCARE THEM" WITH VARIOUS MEANS. IT'S SO PC AND REGULATED THAT THE FARMERS HAVE TO PAY LICENSE FEES TO BE ABLE TO SCARE THE BIRDS. PSSSST...IT DOESN'T WORK!!!!!! IF YOU ARE CAUGHT WITH A DEAD ONE--IT'S $1000.00 PER BIRD!!!! 

I KNOW- I KNOW--THEY HAVE TO EAT TOO--BUT WHAT DO THEY EAT WHEN STRAWBERRIES AREN'T IN SEASON? I'M JUST SAYIN....

THE EARLY BILL STILL GETS THE WORM RIGHT????

EXPENSIVE HUMBLE PIE HUH?

BIG GOVERNMENT SUCKS..THEY HAVE A HAND IN EVERYTHING TO TAKE OUR MONEY. THERE ARE SO MANY ROBINS..YOU COULD NOT DENT THE POPULATION. THEY ARE HERE TODAY AND WILL ARRIVE IN FL. EN-MASS NEXT WEEK FOR THE FREE FEAST!


MEANWHILE--WE WILL BE PUTTING THESE UP FOR STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE TO LAST ALL SPRING LONG! THANKS BILLY: NOTICE WHERE THEY ARE FROM? THIS WAS OUR HOST IN FLORIDA'S BERRIES'. CITRUS IS LONG GONE---TO BRAZIL!

ORANGE  YOU GLAD I DIDN'T STAY AND TAKE OVER DAD'S BUSINESS! 
I AM!


PLANT CITY FL. HOME OF THE STRAWBERRY FESTIVAL- THE WORLD'S WINTER STRAWBERRY CAPITAL.

PIC OF FRIDGE BELOW! AND THIS IS 1/2 A FLAT.

WE HAVE TWO MORE "FLATS" OF THESE STORED ELSEWHERE! 48 OF THESE INDIVIDUAL 1 LB BOXES!!!! CHECK THE PRICES, PER LB, IN YOUR GROCERY & ALSO NOTICE IF THEY ARE CALIFORNIA OR FLORIDA BERRIES.

PS: I'M STILL WAITING ON SOMEONE TO SEND ME MY NEW CANNON T1, OR REBEL, OR WHICHEVER DIGITAL SLR CAMERA! (KIDDING OF COURSE). IT WILL HAVE TO WAIT AS MOVING AND GETTING A NEW HOME IS OF A MUCH HIGHER PRIORITY!!

LOVE YOU ALL
