A younger rooster and heir to Larry. And Blackie who just turned a year old. Remember on my birthday last year and he was so small?
He grew quickly.
Blackie is king of the farm yard. Larry the ex-king was exiled with a hen to my grandmothers where he is living happily ever after.
When Blackie puffs up and comes after the food, as he is doing here, sometimes I hear him in my head in a Foghorn Leghorn voice going "I say, I say right here boys, that seed is mine!"
I just bought a 1.4 extender for my 70mm-200mm zoom since my full frame will be here soon and I will loose some length. And since every time I save close to enough to get the Canon L IS 100-400mm I end up needing to buy something else. The 1.4 for the money gives me right much extra and it doesn't diminish the quality too much. That was what I was testing on the chickens.
And watching Toonces from the porch as he prepared boards that the horses keep popping out with their feet trying to get to the greener grass growing along the sides. Spirit sometimes does it just to make Toonces mad I think. It is working and I think we should hot wire the tinsel on the other side for a few days so that they will stop breaking the boards.
We are headed in the morning to Tappahannock Virginia and the Essex in.
I've never been there and the weather looks pretty nasty but maybe I will get some camera moments. I picked up 2 new books in Roanoke yesterday. I've read enough about dogs for a while so I am reading about Dewey the cat.
I know it isn't very nice or attractive to whine so I won't go into the story about how unhappy I am with my hair. Maybe we get so locked into one look and style that it is hard to have your regular person change it. A toner has mine under control until I can figure out what to do next without starting to damage my hair.
Enjoy your weekend everyone!
