Fins, Feathers, and Tomatoes

Fins, Feathers, and Tomatoes 
15 August 2013

We went to the lake yesterday. It was the most glorious day yet. We practically had the lake to ourselves. Except for the Heron, the mallards, the fish, and the tomatoes. 

The Prince Consort caught a fish! I think that makes six in three summers!!! 

We ticked off this heron who did not want to share the coves as TPC boated around in case there was another fish who wanted to throw itself onto the hook.  The heron flew ahead, landed, flew ahead, landed . . . 

And then we found our tomatoes!!! I know they’re ours! SOMEONE stripped the just ripening tomatoes off our fenced veggie garden, again. I Know it was a raccoon. TPC points out that the lake is seventy plus miles from our house, so ... I point out the tomatoes sitting on the shore of the lake. You tell me what mammal takes food to water to wash it? (The little burglar got someone else’s potatoes too!) 

The heron may have taken exception to our presence in his coves, but the ducks were waiting for us when we made it back to the marina. They know a bread-toting sucker when they see one!

  1. Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no back up.
    Do you have any methods to stop hackers?

    1. Thank you so much for reading.
      Hackers? My modest little personal blog seems like an unlikely target for hackers. What method did you use to stop your hackers? I think we all might learn from you.
      I'm so sorry you lost months of work.

  2. Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured I'd ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa?
    My site discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit
    from each other. If you might be interested feel
    free to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!
    Excellent blog by the way!

    1. Thank you for reading and the compliment. You are very kind. Blogger makes it easy to use my own photographs with their templates.
