Cat staring through closed window at squirrel

The squirrel seems to understand the concept of “window.” It remains unperturbed, even when the cat tries to bat at it.

Bush weighed down with ice; some icecyles so heavy they have pulled the brand horizontal.

The light was bad and I couldn’t get close to them because they didn’t want me to, but the mass of crows was so great I’d figured I post the pictures anyway.

Fort Nonsense, that is. The remains of this small earthwork Civil War fort have recently been turned into a historical park in Mathews County, Virgina. Here are some pictures of what’s left.

Black Swallowtail Butterfly on Vincas

We have had very few butterflies this year. According to my local rag (I can’t find the story now), the screwy weather has had something to do with it–hard rains alternating with one- or two-week hot spells–but they are starting to appear.

Look closely and you can see the baby’s open mouth in the birdhouse.

It’s growing out of the window box, right along with the geraniums and impatiens and the vincas.

It started life as a 1926 Dodge. It now has a Chevy 350 powerplant, an automatic transmission, a radio/CD player, and no power anything.

This rod was a labor of love.

We had a delightful chat with the owner of the vehicle, who created it over the course of several years, at the Beach Pub (an unparalleled eatery) on Friday. We agreed that kids today are a lost cause and don’t know anything about cars.

The owner pursues a sideline of collecting, restoring, and selling knives. If you are interested in collectible knives, email me via the email link on the sidebar and I’ll provide his contact information. (He does not have an on-line presence.)

He really did not want to see the vet, and I have the band-aids to prove it.
