From yesterday's hike. Had a longer hike today. Still need to transfer pics. Good for the soul.

Damn, your good. Just finding the critters is challenging enough let alone capturing such vivid, aesthetic pictures. On top of that your talent to identify is well above average.

Sunrise this morning off my back deck. Headed into town early with She Who Must Be Obeyed, bought her steak and eggs in the smallest, most run-down diner in town (but the best food), and then took her to Lowe's and put her to work loading. :pirates: Came home with (8) 4 x 4 x 8's (pressure treated) and (8) bags of concrete mix. Setting the posts for my new chicken run today. Going to be 8' x 24' and will house six chickens.

You know the mayor actually lives 3 doors down from me and she has done such a bad job that I could beat her if I ran. A garbage can could beat her literally.
Timing is everything. Cash out, run for mayor. I'll be your PR guy

Cashing out means no more dealing with HR departments, attorneys, city commissioners, district managers, HOAs or somebody selling crap door-to-door. Running for mayor and running a city is way more aggrevation and less money than my current gig. The hours are definitely better in government.

My wife would be a better candidate because she likes the spotlight and I hate it. However, if she were instead born in the early 17th century she probably would have been burned at the stake.

You'd be a great mayor though. :robber:

Much like the paper PM market, there isnt any pot of gold at the end of this rainbow.

Couple of shots from around Pensacola below. A little photoshop involved in #3.

I just did a tape-check on my globe. I live in Florida, but I am closer to Cancun than to Pensacola.

And both of them are in different time zones.
Yeah, around 530 miles as the missile flies and around 640 miles as the car drives. A lot different other ways too, the Panhandle principally being Southern culturally but South Florida is a combo of Caribbean and New York. I've spent quite a bit of time in South Florida.
