Loved Fraggle Rock. I used to watch it with my son when he was a toddler. Henson was a genius!

^^^ Those sockets look like the vintage ones from the 1990s? No chinesium in them.

Beavers will hose up that idyllic, pastoral woodland. The little bastages never stop dam building. They will extend flooded areas by having one-foot high dam extensions built further daily. Eventually, the larger trees die from being under water and the mosquito population explodes.

I got one with my cannon, once.

It looks like it has been trying to dam the creek that flows into the river there.

There are already many downed trees in the area after it took a direct hit from a tornado a few years ago. Park management are still clearing trees from that event. Ironic seeing a bunch of trees brought down by a beaver after seeing so many that were brought down from the tornado.

Thanks! lol. I thought about mentioning "nature's corn dog" but thought I would let it stew.

I do like capturing the random small aircraft when I have the camera ready. Nice way to check settings. These are from last Saturday.

Beaver is very tasty.

Landing gear is down so must be close to an airport.
Indeed. I am a couple miles from a regional airport. Almost right in line with the main landing strip. Those planes were coming in for a landing.

Then we had this odd one the other day from another airport, noticed this plane doing a tight loop. Was flying level by the time I had the camera ready.

Flight track implies they were having fun.

A couple are way older. Were my grandfather's...my grandmother worked at Sears for years so he had a lot of old and some newer(90's as you mentioned) craftsman tools.
