So much to share with you – and very little time to do so.
I had The Trip From Hell on Friday … United Airlines messed up my flight(s) beyond all imagination.
(That story is an entire post by itself!)
I arrived at my parent’s house in AbsolutelyNowhere, Oregon, at about midnight Friday night.
Cell phone service and Internet is very questionable/intermittent here.
(The farm is surrounded by huge trees and forest which complicates things.)
On Saturday morning, I was awoken by gobbling.
There are wild turkeys roaming around everywhere.
(Sorry the above shot isn’t better. I took it through a window!)
This particular tom turkey was preening for some nearby females who were completely ignoring him and VERY uninterested.
He did not get lucky.
I can’t help it – I see turkeys and I think Thanksgiving.
Above is a photo of AbsolutelyNowhere, Oregon.
What you don’t see in this shot is the dense forest to the right of the frame.
It showers off and on all day. One minute the sky is dark and cloudy, the next it’s sunny.
There are a lot of deer roaming around my parents land.
I haven’t gotten any photos of the newborn fawns yet, but they’re adorable with their spots.
I might have exclaimed, “Bambi!” multiple times since I arrived.
Yes, we have deer at home.
For some reason, it isn’t the same as seeing them here in AbsolutelyNowhere, Oregon.
I haven’t seen the wild hunting/stalking cat yet.
We’re now pretty sure it is a baby-ish/teenage mountain lion.
I’ll tell you more about THAT soon.
(Assuming I can get online again.)
(Also, assuming I can stay online for long enough to get a post to publish.)
