Sometimes the kids need a break.
Not sure what the sign is for. Do you really drop of your parents?
If it is to give care takers a break that's great, otherwise it seems odd.

When we were in New Zealand in 2009 we went on a pelagic trip, a fancy name for taking a boat out into the ocean to see sea birds.
They put a bait ball bull of fish bits over the stern of the boat and albatross and other birds came in.
Occasionally they were very aggressive.
The bird on the right has a 10 foot wing span.

When I was a young fella there was a brand of mufflers named Thrush.
They were desined to be fairly loud and rumbly.
Considering how melodious thrushes are I don't understand the muffler name.
You can hear the wood thrush here.

Something different today.
A short video of hatchling soft shelled turtles burrowing into the mud.
When your small and something big comes along, you hide.

It's hard being green
A green tree frog on a branch. He's about the size of two thumbnails.

Mike Holmes would be proud.
For those of you who don't know the reference, Mike Holmes has a show on HGTV called Holmes on Homes.
It deals with homes that need repairs despite what the home inspectors said in their reports.

The Mackaws of Rondeau like pine cones and grass seeds on occasion.
This one turned up in our yard and I was able to get a shot of one eating a pine cone.
I think the propane delivery guy is playing a trick on us. I like his sense of humour.

Now THAT is a steep hill.
As seen in northwestern Ohio. If you have ever been to northwest Ohio you know it is flat as a table.
