mole If I can drive enough of 'em up to the box canyon...

ohhhhhhhh that is very nice havalotta {lady luck lives on the lake}, 3 of a kind...too rich for my blood... but, I won't fold quite yet, there are still a few days left in this month. I was even out last night with two different cameras trying to get the lunar eclipse photographed~~~arrrrrgh the pixs were a bust, but I enjoyed seeing the blood moon rising.

If you-all are imagining what I could be up to till the end of the month Ellen,,,, just imagine me with hat, spurs, & turtle whistle out there in the wilds, trying to organize my local 'turtle round-up' & get a picture of it!!! hahaha rofl

Well I don't know about it being nice and all as it is on the blurry side but I couldn't help but egg you on with it a little bit anyway.

I watched the eclipse while in travel last night. Good thing I looked up what time it was to be as that one was REAL early for an eclipse to occur.
The full Monte was enjoyed over the bay with a couple of friends we went out with for the first time. Nice couple. Should do that more often.

I'd like to hear more about that turtle whistling talent of yours.
What are the spurs for? Walking on water or is it the lily pads? Guess I can see how they'd help support a person of your caliber.
If they don't aid in supporting ya much at least the floating hat will clue them in to where you sank in the trial.

I think two seagulls beat three turtles, maybe this is just one and a half though.

Oh definitely better than the three turtles photo.
Hmmmm now let me see. Do I have or can I locate a photo of three seagulls to pull out of that ole hat of mine to add to the pot?

Whoops.
While in search of a trio of gulls to stir up the pot. I realized I had neglected to check on the date of the turtles before sending it in.
Upon doing that...I see it was taken in August Delete The entry of trio of turtles from the contest.
