Photo Of The Day: Fishing Tiny

Ahh, the life of solitude aboard a tiny vessel.
On a very nice morning recently, I was walking to my car to go get a much needed hair cut, something caught my eye in a nearby pond. It might not look like much from the picture but there are two good ol' boys fishing in a tiny boat. Like, I said, it might not look like much but this is a pond we are talking about and nobody but ducks are seen on these small waters 99% of the time.

They look like they might be brothers so I admire that. I digress, I wish I could of gone out on the pond and asked them if they caught anything. Even if they didn't, I guess it still would be a relaxing way to spend a quite morning. Hey, if someone said, you can either go to work today or go fishing on a tiny boat in little residential pond, I'd say sign me up for the boat.

Photo Of The Day: Sunset Story

Love how this gives the illusion that I was taking a picture of the Sun above the cloud top as if on a mountain peak

The Sun starts it's inevitable fade into the clouds

Love the Mirage effect

House Too Big

Yes, it is hard to spot the woman on the porch of this GARGANTUAN house that we spotted while vacationing in Texas but we thought we'd help you out. I wonder if she is thinking, "Oh man, geez did I really need a house this big". It sure looks like it.

Ugly Texas Creepy Crawlies

Just got to say that I'm glad the bug and I were separated by the glass on my patio door. We do have some huge and very rarely sighted bugs in Texas and this was one of them.

The GOOD Life Of Key West Chickens Or Is It?

On a recent trip to Key West, this fugitive chicken was spotted at a gas station. No, I'm not talking about the man in the photo; he is not a chicken (at least not that I know of). I'm talking about the ACTUAL chicken in the photo.

As you can see from the picture (above) taken at a local restaurant, on an outside patio table there is a sticker that pretty much sums it up. In Key West, life is a little different; they let the chickens roam free to do pretty much what they want so they aren't really fugitives at all but free loving chickens! I guess you could say it's a part of the laid back lifestyle of Key West.

Then… what do you know, what's under the table (above) is really ironic because it's a family of chickens! For some reason, I don't think they like their pictures taken though! I have evidence of this, and you can see for yourself from this series of pictures I took...

As you can see... further evidence....the chickens are trying to hide from the camera!

Then finally the truth is revealed as to why the chickens of Key West were hiding from us. They are trying to avoid ending up in someones "stovepot" as this sign that we spotted at the restuarant  references.
