Went camping with friends from the city. They brought a couple of these.

I've got a firewood shed with oak cut up like that bundle (which, BTW, is not oak). In the Publix and Winn Dixie soopermarkets, that bundle goes for $7.99. (*gasp*)

My old shed therefore holds way more wealth than what it cost me to build the sucker 20 years ago.

Shoot unca, at those rates my giant maple out back would prolly be worth about 500k cut up all cute like that.

I was leaning back on 2 rear legs in a plastic chair on a second Guinness. Bob is super cool and very down to earth. It's like we have known each other for years. Lots in common. Gives me hope that civilization is not totally lost.

He is from the area, but moved away later in life. My wife and I moved to the island part time within the last 3 years. She runs a business here. We had such a good weekend that we may sell the home on the mainland and make our address permanent on Ocean Dr.

Now here is a new attraction at Jetty Park to stimulate tourism. Take a selfie with a passed out local. *Note the tourist partially staged the photo with his own beer.

Some pics from today's hike.

Not sure what these are. Early bloomers. Saw no other types of flower.

Looked like a birds nest from afar but I don't know what it is. Hoping some sort of beneficial Larvae

That hawk's looking like someone stole his car. Intensity. Do you know what type of falcinoform?
I am thinking maybe a broad-winged hawk but not 100% on that.


Great action & detail of the kinglet. Cutie.
These fun little birds are all over the park where I was hiking. Very difficult to photograph. They never stop moving.

Thought I recognized the area, St. Olaf/Carleton/Northfield/Faribault area has some great terrain.

The wildlife is AWESOME, great pics!

Now just imagine if your wife just woke up, had no time to do her hair or makeup, wasn't even wearing any clothes, and then as your newborn baby is nursing on herm, some freakin' nosey guy comes prancing around taking a bunch of pictures of her! :belly laugh:

Gotta give these animals props when it comes to being comfortable in their own skin without the debilitating insecurity of status & vanity.
