Sunset and update

Round Bales This Time

After we cut there were several days of light rain and the hay was a bit heavy,  It dried well but our neighbor thought it would be better if he used his big round baler rather than the small baler.

Peacock at Magnolia Park

  Unfortunately, although I followed him for about 30 minutes, he didn't open his fantail.  He looks a bit scraggly so it may not have been that spectacular anyway.

I Want One Of These (redux)

E-Bikes Need Batteries

Not a fan of pumpkin ale. Don't like most 'flavors' added to my beer or cigars or pipe. [shrugs]

I love my flags

Sandi got me the flagpole several years ago for Christmas but I didn't I install it until last month. I especially like the Gadsden flag. It is in our back yard.

The bridge at Confluence Park

The Orlando Eye

The Wheel at Icon Park opened on May 4, 2015 and I finally went to check it out! My flight time was scheduled for 4:45 (tickets online in advance), but I received an email about an hour ahead saying it was 'not in operation' and that I could make use of my...
