Daily Pics #249.

Good Saturday morning everyone! It’s a nice fall morning, the sun is shining, the moon is shining, the sky is a very brilliant blue, there’s no wind. It’s nice to see that strong northwest wind has stopped, and that means warmer weather for the weekend. It should hit 66F (19C) today. But Monday it really starts to cool off with temps colder than before. Oh well. Fall is here. That turkey is staying around here these days, definitely not a smart thing to do. Last evening he was in our yard so I was out there trying to get a picture. That was a waste of time really, he would not stand still. But I tried. This morning he was in the neighbors yard getting his morning exercise running around. He was being chased by a small black cat that roams the area. The cat does have a home but he spends more time outside than he does at home. Anyway, he was chasing the turkey, a rather futile attempt, that turkey can run fast. It did look rather comical though watching that little cat chasing this huge bird around the yard. Muffin was having fun watching them. Probably saying to herself, “I could catch that turkey bird”.

Speaking of chasing. All the chipmunks and Jasper were out here this morning. When Jasper first showed up Pocket was already in the box filling up with peanuts. The chase was on! Pocket easily got away and Jasper decided not to jump off the deck this time. But as he turned around he spotted another chipmunk and off he went. As they were going one way Skamper came by going the other way. Poor Jasper, he spotted Skamper but as he was trying to turn around he ran right into another box, smack! He shook his head and continued the chase. By this time Skamper was picking up his second peanut and getting ready to leave. Skamper and Jasper flew over the edge of the deck. Meanwhile Coffee showed up and got his fill of peanuts and left just before Jasper returned. Jasper got up and looked all around but couldn’t see any chipmunks so he started to go into the box. As he was going in one end Chester was going in the other end. Poor Jasper. He jumped, hit his head and then was in a mad scramble trying to get back out the door. I couldn’t believe how much trouble he was having. Meanwhile Chester was hiding behind a flower pot. Jasper finally got out and turned around. He couldn’t see anything so he went slowly back to the box and peered in the door. Finally he was brave enough to go in, grab a peanut and run off. I think Jasper must be getting nervous, or something.


It is a nice fall morning. The featured image at the top shows more island living on our beautiful lake. Then in the picture above is another zinnia, this time in a nice bright pink. There are many different colors of these flowers which I will be showing over the next few days. I hope you have a nice relaxing Saturday and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

  1. It’s 7:30 in the morning as I write this here in SoCal. The thermometer at my tack room is already reading 82Β° and the sun hasn’t come up over the hill yet. It’s predicted to hit 115Β° today! It would be nice to have some 60Β° weather. But that won’t be coming for some time yet where I live. Summer is still trying to hang on.

    • Wow, that’s staying hot! A little too cool here for me, but still better than what’s coming! Large flocks of geese and cranes migrating now. Hope you can enjoy the day anyway!


  2. Good morning my dear friend. Love the bright color of that zinnia. The season has begun to subtly change in my neck of the woods, but I love the cooler temps.
    Have a wonderful day.

  3. I woke up to a steeped Tea from Tims this morning. I saw a Tim Hortons muffin on the counter and thought it was from me. Then I thought maybe you mailed it to me because we had that conversation about muffins the other day. Turns out it was Nick’s muffin – a bran muffin…. yuck. I was surprised he got that for himself because he never buys muffins from Tim Hortons. I think maybe you had some sort of influence on him. πŸ˜‚

    • Hey, that was a nice way to wake up!πŸ˜ƒβ˜•
      Bran muffins can be good, though I have never tried one from Tim’s. They were my dad’s favorite. Hmm, probably take a week by mail, might be a bit dried out by then. Plus I don’t have your address so that would make it tougher as well, might take the post office longer to find you.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ΉπŸ™„

      • Turkeys are dangerous birds, I don’t think he has to worry about a cat. One peck from that beak and the cat would be running away fast!πŸ™€ Going to be hard to stay warm the next few days!πŸ₯Ά But we will get back to normal temps by next weekend.πŸ˜€ Enjoy your evening Simon!πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ΊπŸŒ™πŸŒ§πŸŒ§

  5. It’s nice you were able to spend a lovely fall day with your furry friends. Sorry to hear about your computer woes. There are several reasons why a computer won’t update – one is there may be no more room on your hard drive for a system update and you can perform a disk cleanup to help the situation. Could be malware is hindering the update. Try rebooting the computer to see if that helps. I had an eleven-year-old Toshiba laptop with Win 7 and I downloaded Win 10 back when it first came out. After a while, it wouldn’t update and I found there wasn’t enough room on the hard drive to accept the update. So I had to replace it. Good luck! β˜•οΈβ˜•οΈβ˜•οΈβ˜•οΈπŸ’» ⌨️ πŸ–₯
