Sunday Afternoon Blessings DH and I love golf so we watched the 2019 British Open Championship ( The Open ) from Royal Portrush, Northern Ireland. It was broadcast Live on our local station starting at 6:30 am EDT and lasted until around 1:00 pm EDT. I was thrilled that Shane Lowry, an Irishman, won The Open by six shots at one of his favorite courses that’s only about a 4-hour drive from his home course in County Offaly, Ireland. DH is napping now. It’s another hot and humid day with triple digit heat index values. I had planned to go… Read more »

My goodness, what a wild morning here. We had a young moose walk from the woods into our backyard! So cool and Danny had been warning us about something but kept him inside. I would never let him chase deer or moose. Also, if mama is still around I would not want a confrontation with her protecting her young. I closed the windows and got Danny in on the bed with the a/c on and he settled down not knowing we were watching the moose. Wish we had pictures but too caught up in the few minutes we had the… Read more »

Wish I had pictures but didn’t want to disturb the moment. I remember seeing a photo online of a crowd of people looking at something. Every person had their camera out except one older lady. She was in front and just smiling and enjoying the moment. It opened my eyes to sometimes just go back to life before cell phones and take in the joy of something other than through the lens of a camera. That is just me. I sometimes wish I could go back to simpler days,

If anyone interested this guy is really amazing. He is a funny and incredibly kind man with vast knowledge of wildlife due to his personal experiences over many years.
