can you imagine the smoke and noise as those babies fired?

Rock the boat! Aim low cause the shots fired will change

the horizon.

within a few feet of a small caliber cannon once
lots of gunpowder, soft shot
blew the eardrums hard
nearly crumpled the temples

clear and cool, mild breeze

@joe shikspack

whenever I watch the crews of those tall ships
shake out or gather up all that canvas
I think that is a labor of love
dangling on yardarms
hoist up the landlubbers
batten down the hatches

I took the convertible up into Ogden valley last month to see the fall colors, but they’d already peaked and really weren’t very pretty this year. Saw lots of birds though including these turkeys running wild.

I also went up a road to the horse farm to see the horses. Then the family that lived there came home...oops I didn’t see the sign saying it’s private. But then you can’t see it unless you’re coming from the other way and it’s hidden. You’d think an "I’m sorry I didn’t realize" would do the trick.... oh well the horses were happy to see me. Gotta get the photos off the phone.

seeing a slew of wild turkeys lately
horses are cool souls, gentle
expressive eyes too, calming

Great pics everyone! QMS, BR, JS, and SP, all, awesome shots. Considering I spent a couple thousand hours at sea, I should have more boat pix. But I don't have a ship to give.

How about some mammals, or, things you won't see on boats.

This is a Gray Fox. They often show lots of rusty or rufous color. A couple quick easy ID points between them and Red Fox are Red Fox has white tail-tip, and mostly black legs.

This is a Black Rock Squirrel, looking for the bus. They are ground squirrels, not tree squirrels.
BlkRockSquir111220a.jpg

This is a Black-tailed Jackrabbit trying to stay cool in the summer heat. Jackrabbits are actually correctly hares, not rabbits. These Black-tails have way more white than normal or most have on undersides, sometimes much of their sides are white.

I'm used to MidWest cottontails. Cute little bunnies. And in Spring I saw why they say "Mad as a March hare" as they leaped over each other. (I think it's actually male aggression).

We are so screwed.

Nonetheless, contemplate the contrast between his measured, adult, and deeply affected leveling with the people who elected him to steer their nation, through good times and hard; versus the clown show to which we have subscribed on this side of the border.

Mind you, Canada has its share of clowns, too. As in the US, they tend to be concentrated in rural areas. Others can speculate as to the whys and wherefores of that.

(I don't know why the only complete version of this talk is on youtube -- the canadian govt site seems only to have an abbreviated cut ...)
