I was so lucky to get close to this magnificent creature perched in our backyard
The colors are so vibrant!
I’m standing right underneath the branch.
Look at those talons!
It’s like he/she is saying, “I know I’m beautiful, hurry up and get the money shot!”
Keeping a close watch on the squirrels.
Eyeballing tugboat man on the deck. Shhhh!
How’s my profile?

Triquetral avulsion fracture.
That’s the name of the break I sustained.
I slipped and fell in this ditch Sunday evening in our upper yard as I was looking for
coyotes in the hill on the other side of our property.
I was wearing flip flops (not smart) and my hand broke my fall, but then I broke my hand.
SCENE OF THE ACCIDENT… At first I thought it was just a sprain or torn ligaments, but the pain was really, really bad, so I had it X-rayed and the doc confirmed my suspicions.
I’m in a removable cast for about six weeks — no weightlifting but I can do anything else that doesn’t cause pain.
My hand is super swollen and all bruised up, too.
I might not be able to lift weights, but there’s nothing to prevent me from shopping!
I never did see any coyotes but I snapped a pic of this amazing hawk in our
Coyotes and Fireworks (myersbowman.wordpress.com)
This morning glory is the most exquisite shade of purply-blue, winding around a eucalyptus tree near our little pond and waterfall.
I actually dug the holes and poured the concrete myself, one of my projects undertaken when my Merchant Marine captain was away. He installed the pond motor, but I did 90% of everything else. It is a very positive feeling, like I can do just about anything if I try. That’s probably my personal credo; always try or you’ll never know if you could do it or not!
