The Adventures of Boomer on Friday— A Walk in the Night

Mom and I went for a nice long walk one night in the Full of the November moon.

Mom and I always go for lots of walks

day and at least one at night.

Mom says her favorite night-time walk is in the full-moon, although the dark of moon allows the star-spangled sky to shine.

Mom takes her camera, although she doesn’t always get good photos.  Still…she likes to snap away.

As for me…well…I like to check out news!  But you knew that already!  🙂

So…..along the way we ran into a buck…who actually ran into us.

We scared him so bad he jumped the fence, then the canal and the next fence and ran away, away, away.

Mom took a picture of all the house lights over the mesa from us in what the old-timers used to call “No-Mans-Land” ….I guess it’s should be called ‘Any-man’s-land” now since there are houses all over down there.

On the way back Mom sat down on the gated pipe and just sat.  Suddenly a doe came out of the corn…walked right in front of Mom and guess what…MOM GOT A PHOTO!!!

Of course the deer got a scare.  She bounded off on her tip-toes in dainty leaps and bounds.

Back home the fire in the woodstove felt good…Mom and I settled in for the night…refreshed and bathed in moonlight.



Sail Along Silver Moon– Thursday, December 4, 2014

MoonThe moon is rising late in the day,

The Moon 9It’s not a completely full moon yet, but it’s getting there.

SilverBy six in the evening it’s dark here, but the moonlight casts beautiful silver light illuminating the corn field.  Boomer and I don’t even have to use a light to drive back home from the combine.  🙂  A gift from nature.

I got these photos on Monday.  I was hoping on Tuesday I could get better ones since the moon would be fuller by then.  Of course high thin clouds started drifting in–by three in the afternoon the high thin clouds had turned in to thicker heavier clouds that promised rain or snow.  CROSSED FINGERS —-go away moisture…go away…we are just getting good and started —hiss, hiss!!!

Anyway, I was glad I got a photo of the moon on Tuesday!
