Freddie and Shonie

FREDDIE AND SHONIE Freddy and Shonie are such good buddies. After a morning of playing ball Shonie tuckered out and hit the couch. Fedddie pulled a pillow over and climbed on top. Shonie was out like a light and didn’t even notice. I thought it was so cute I had to take a picture and […]

A YARD FULL OF WHITETAIL FRIENDS

A YARD FULL OF WHITETAIL FRIENDS Every evening we sprinkle sweet apple deer corn in small piles around the front yard and watch as the deer come running out of the woods to be the first to claim their share. We used to dump it all in one place but it didn’t take us long […]

AS THE EAGLE FLIES…

AS THE EAGLE FLIES I There is nothing that evokes American pride within us quite like seeing our national bird in the wild. I have been lucky enough to have seen seven American Eagles at the creek behind our cabin and every time I have been left in “AHHH”.  The majestic confidence in which they […]

LIVING HER BEST DOG’S LIFE

LIVING HER BEST DOG’S LIFE!      Six years ago I saw an add for a female English Bulldog for sale. We had lost our beloved bulldog, Baby Girl, a few months before so I made the call. Two hours later I was way down in the Southern Ohio hills trying to find the farm […]

WATCHIN’ THE SNOW FLY

WATCHIN’ THE SNOW FLY I spotted this little doe down in the valley as she stood watchin’ the snow fly late this afternoon. The look on her face clearly says she is sorry she ventured out in such foul weather. She didn’t stay long. She heard the click of my camera and was gone in […]

THROUGH THE EARLY MORNING MIST

THROUGH THE EARLYMORNING MIST It was barely dawn and I was out walking Freddie and Shonie when a slight movement on the ridge caught my eye. Through the early morning mist I spotted this pair standing at attention watching us.  Seldom a day goes by that I don’t see does on our property, but the […]

EVERY CRITTER ON THE CRICK

EVERY CRITTER ON THE CRICK From my chair in the living room I have an unobstructed view of our front porch and our lane that leads up the hill to the road. I love to sit there, Freddie and Shonie sharing my blanket with me, and watch the birds fight for footing on the bird […]

MEET OWLBERT

MEET OWLBERT This is our resident screech owl, Owlbert. He comes around most every night and flies circles around our security light as he scours both air and land for dinner. If nothing appears to be promising he will move on down to the creek and canvas the water there as well. He is a […]

MASTER BUCK

MASTER BUCK POSES FOR PICTURE Master buck poses for picture. Stan and I were heading to town and as we pulled up the driveway I spotted a large buck running across our back lot down by the creek. We knew the buck would have to cross the road if he kept going in the direction […]

BEST SEAT IN THE CABIN

BEST SEAT IN THE CABIN It didn’t take Freddie and Shonie long to figure out this was the best seat in the cabin on this cold late fall day.  We had gotten a dusting of snow overnight and they both came in from their morning walk with wet feet and cold noses.  Freddie frolicked in […]
