Fox

Had one shot left and took this of the fox as it stood steady. Usually trots off into the woods. The high school that I graduated from in Illinois after leaving St. Louis and the Pattonville Pirates was the McLeansboro Foxes.

Decided to take 2 leaves with Monarch butterfly eggs on them from Day 76 picture. 2 out of 4 of the caterpillars can be seen in this pic. They are about 2mm long.

It’s like having a dog. The back windows only go down so far but it didn’t stop Layton from catching some wind in his hair.

Cracks

Just home from church where Pastor Scott Thomas’ message was, “Cracks.”  During, I took a little sidebar for this.

Be sure to take time to check your house.  Life can slip by and you won’t even notice what is going on around your house.  Here is Florida, most of the houses have block and stucco.  After some time, the stucco will crack along the block touch points and make a nice little stair-step crack on your exterior.  This besides being unsightly creates entry point for water, termites and other insects.  Anything that gets in the crack, has access to what is inside.  Some of the invaders are satisfied hanging out in the walls.  There they multiply and destroy the exterior from within the wall.  Left unchecked for a longer period and the crack will become a gap.  All sorts of creatures can now infiltrate the barrier that was to keep you safe.  Take some time and check your house for cracks.  Check that house called your life.  Do you have cracks appearing?  Fill and repair them now before the cracks leave you an empty shell.

Day 72 – Life 365

Spy

Spy

If you come to Florida, you will see Anole lizards EVERYWHERE. This baby was the only one that I could catch up to. They always seem to be right where you are passing, like little spies. Catch it and you can attach it to your ear as a live earring.
