A Croaking Night Ahead

It's a little hard to tell the size here but this little fella is no more than 1-1/2 to 2 inches long. What a set of lungs, he can and does disturb TV watching on some occasions. Hopefully he will keep the bugs down around the deck....go get those spiders.

Blurry because I didn't know where is was and couldn't focus in the dark.

The balusters are 1-1/4" square.

On the arm of a chair.

Not where you would expect to see a frog. Little suction cups on his feet to hang on with.

Night Sky

Nice clear night to take some pictures. Took these at about 10 PM. Combo of city lights and sun still going down gives a nice blue glow. The Big Dipper surprised me. Sky had very little haze, tomorrow will be different because it is to get humid. Both pictures were without the aid of a tripod. The moon says we won't be getting any rain soon. My dad always said that when the moon leans back so that water can't run out over the bottom lip rain is not in our future.

Back when baseball, apple pie and Chevrolet meant something when in a phrase together.

Son-in-law being engulfed by two dogs. Harley, the black dog was in his lap looking for attention. Dexter, the Beagle, got jealous and decided he wanted petted too.

House and Barn

We go by this place on our way to Lebanon, OH or on down to Loveland when we visit our daughter. We always see these types of homes in need of repair, usually paint, and wonder why someone would let them get in this condition. I have no idea as to how much land goes with this property, maybe very little in comparison to what it had in years past. Obviously it isn't a working farm today. The fence is in need of help, you wouldn't want to take a chance of keeping a horse or cow there. The barn and other out buildings are also decaying with time, right along with the home. It's possible that the buckboard (the original pickup truck) wagon in the yard is in better shape than the barn. Actually it's a manure spreader if you look real hard when enlarging the picture.

A Painter Outside

One year ago we had a pretty severe hail storm hit about a two mile or better area. We got everything repaired, roof, down spouts, deck etc. but the siding damage wasn't done. Now, everything is complete.
