I saw this at a rest area on I-80 in Iowa.
I saw these mushrooms growing on a dead tree while walking the dog. They are called Dryad’s saddle or pheasant back mushrooms. They are edible. Here are two links to videos:
Does your dog need a bath? Or possibly a new tail?
I was taking my son to a dental appointment when we saw two wild turkeys in a parking lot in the middle of the city. When I stopped the car they ran to us, circled the car and pecked at it (probably seeing their reflections)
No pinching this gal.
A live oak is a species of oak that keeps it’s leaves during the winter months. The live oak pictured is the famous Candler Oak in Savannah, Georgia which was planted in the 1700s.
I applaud the many artists who are making amazing creations from recycled materials. I am delighted by the quirky statues from artist Gary Olson. I have included photos of one of his art pieces entitled Self-Educated Rabbit. If you want to know more about his art go to http://www.olsonlarsen.com/index.cfm/65942/19087/studio_visit_gary_olson
My mother-in-law was de-cluttering her house some years ago and gave me this painting which I thought was fun. More recently, I tried to read the signature and find out more about the artist. I knew the artist was from Little Rock, Arkansas. I found out that the painter was Helen Terry Marshall who died at age 98 in 2007. I could not find other examples of her art on the internet, but one interesting fact (here comes the Christmas connection): her son, Fred Calvin Marshall was a jazz musician in the Vince Guaraldi trio and played the bass in the original soundtrack of A Charlie Brown Christmas which aired on PBS a few nights ago.
