While I was trying to get my camera out of the back of my truck, these two elk were banging heads. Just as I got ready to photograph them they quit. It looks like they were talking it over and walked away.

With so many guys in the room , it got kind of cluttered

These pictures were taken during an archery competition which my wife and I went on several shoots. Our gift to the boys was to give them a dry place to sleep and not have to eat all there meals at a diner. We cooked and cooked , fed them bacon, eggs, biscuits for breakfast and for lunch it was usually a couple of Boston butts That would be around four o’clock. The guys normally did not have anything to eat from breakfast until 4:00PM.  The boys paid for food all fees we just paid for fuel, I think they even gave us money for that.

The guy in red is my wife’s son, also are grandson is among them.

You can see that my wife and I have had a few dogs over the years,all of them rescued. It wasn’t until after we had them several years that they had health problems. We loved them and they loved us, we gave them probably the best years of their lives. They shared our house and the room that I show in the above pictures.

Weekly Photo Challenge: On the Move

Post A Week

 

Doing this post gave me an insight of how blessed I  have been the past many years. All of these photos I have done, maybe not in the exact – plane ,hot air balloon, train, river paddle boat, bike race, but it sure was the same motor coach.

Yes I had many occasion to fly in air planes In the Navy and from Los angles to Savannah  two or three times a year.

If you have been following my blog then you probably know that this is our motor coach that we have been traveling around the United States with.

Yes we have pretty blessed to have done a lot of things and been to a lot of places,met a lot of nice people and made many friends.

One time we spent a week or two in a forestry camp ground on the North side of Mt Lassen National Park. There is a little stream there and I went fishing and met fellow fisherman, struck up a conversation seemed to hit it off. Every day that we were in the park we would meet up and swap fish stories.. One day a fish that I caught I had asked him if he wanted it, He said no, he was saving room in his freezer for the big one that he was going to catch. I replied that I had plenty of room in my freezer when I eat it I’ll tell everyone you caught it.  LOL

This probably is as close as I’ll get of doing a Selfie.   I don’t use a camera phone so I wouldn’t be doing a selfie . I just happen to have this one that I took of myself last year.it just looked good in the car window at the time.

I do have a few others that someone else took of me with my granddaughter. This probably one of my favorites.

We were at Medina Lake ,TX having breakfast in our motor home when we looked out the window and saw all these deer. WE went out – I took this picture and several more. My wife started walking closer and closer, they almost would eat out of her hand. There were many more then just the few I have in this picture.

Normally I have bacon and egg over easy. These haven’t been flipped over yet. I don’t normally take pictures of my food or drink. But I did have these two.

Can’t get by with out a cup of coffee or two in the morning.

Travel With Intent–Look Up And Down Challenge–Week One

Sea Gull 1 001 copy

When my wife and I got our first motor home, we would spent just about three weekend a month down by the ocean. My wife would work four days a week and ten hours a day 4/10’s. I would take the motor home down to the beach  on Thursday morning and park it, then come back home. When she would get off of work we would loads up the dogs and us ,plus what ever else we needed – head for the beach. We would stay until Sunday afternoon then head for home ,which was only 45 miles away. We would do that almost three out of four week ends a month.  We would love to watch the dolphins putting on a show for us or everyone else that was watching. The pelicans always fascinated me because they would always fly in formation. I would wonder how they came to the decision to who would lead the flock. The sea gulls would fly back and forth depending if someone was feeding them. They weren’t as much fun to watch as the pelicans or the dolphins. A couple of times we would saw a whale come by but he would be so far out that mainly all we could see was him spouting water. I don’t blame him, I spit that salty water out too.

I just loaded the parrot in for the look down part of this challenge and because he’s sharp in all of his grandeur.
