Joseph, A Junior Genuis

Here is a picture of our grandson Joseph 8, with Meterologist David Neal, with Fox 6, at the Jr. Genius Challenge winners' party at the McWane Science Center. It seems Joseph entered the contest and forgot about it untill he was notified he was a winner.
We don't know all the details yet but he sure looks proud and Mamaw and Pawpaw are always proud of him as well as our 10 other grand children and 1 great grandchild. We believe they are all genuises...:-)

Pair of Fish Thieves

I finally got both of the thieves to pose together. Mr. & Mrs Owl. look awful "fishy".
I suppose you have to do what you have to do to raise a family.

The Fish Thief

This is one of the pair of Owls that cleaned out our fish pond. They both allow us to get close and even seem to pose. I always thought owls were nocturnal but these are active all day.
We have a yard full of pesky chipmunks that we would love for them to put on their menu.
Our whole yard, I'm afraid, has been undermined by the cute little vermin and I've trapped many but don't have the heart to kill them. I usually take them to some near by woods so they can start a new colony.
I suppose the owls do catch some but the fish were so much easier to nab.
