A Pair of Bobcats!

A week ago, our grandson who is almost four, said we should all go down to St. Marks for the afternoon. It never takes much to get us on board with a trip to the lighthouse. This time, our son took their big SUV that will hold all of us. It is so nice to be able to go together and talk about the same things we are seeing.

It was a pleasant afternoon but we had no idea of the thrill in store for us on the return trip. We always check the sand spits off the side of the road where we have seen single bobcats before. This time, it was our daughter-in-law who spotted the spotted cats first. And, my goodness! There were TWO of them together!

If you click on each picture it will enlarge and you can see much more clearly.
This first kitty is much more spotty.

In the one picture below, both bobcats are in the same shot.

Mailbox Monday: Old Ironsides

This is a serious mailbox. I particularly like the tin roof. I wonder how many snakes or bats have found their way in the slot.

I got the decoration and missed the mailbox!

The 100th Day of School

Last Thursday was the 100th Day of School. Primary grades really get into such things and use it as a teaching theme to learn about numbers 1-100. I decided I wanted to do something different this year. I stopped by  Dollar Tree and picked up packages of 9" balloons. B helped me blow up (with our air!) all but 14 of them and put them in leaf bags and stuff them into my car. The next morning, I attached most of them to the wall with push pins and blew up the rest. Each student made a  hat that read "100 Days Smarter." I took individual pictures with the balloons as the background and emailed them to their parents.  At the end of the day, each child could choose one to take home.

Good grief!
