Not much going on... How 'Bout You?

Not a lot was caught on the game cam this past week. We did have a BIG rain recently. I suspect that as ground water dries up, more wildlife will come get their drink on here from the koi pond.

I did get video of the coyote. Once again, his attention is directed towards the house. He's watching us, while I'm trying to watch him (or her).

This cat leads a risky lifestyle. It's not one of ours.

WAIT! I just found video on the game cam of what I thought was a regular housecat, but it's obviously more wildlife ...

#2 son still has orchestra class, via ipad. His A string was broken and Amazon said it would be weeks until they could get us a replacement. I emailed his teacher at HCMS and she scavenged an A from a school instrument and sent it USPS. The daughter has become the house instrument tech.  


His birthday gift FINALLY arrived, more than a month after his birthday. He's ready to start bass guitar lessons later this week, via ipad facetime. His sister help set up and tune the new guitar.

I'm still working on my Metal Arts Class from home. I used an old anvil that had belonged to my grandfather.

Many people are complaining about no access to barber or hair salon. I cut my own hair, as I have done for decades. I can live with it and the price is good.

The sun is setting later and temps will be near 100 today.
