Always on watch

Caracaras live in the savanna areas of Florida, Texas and Mexico. They are beautiful and impressive birds with unusual markings. Their calls are almost like high pitch whistles. They are often seen on posts, like this, near the edge of the field waiting for road kill. This guy was quite comfortable in the rain.

Meet Mugsy, a working Mule

Mid January Jo, my wife, and I attended the annual Evans-71 high school bonfire at the ranch of one of Jo’s classmates in Howey-in-the- Hills, FL. The bonfire has become an annual event so that the alumni of Evans High School, Orlando, can have a good excuse to get together to burn some firewood, eat delicious food, talk about guns, and enjoy catching up with each other. Liz, a schoolmate, and husband own the ranch where the bonfire is hosted.
