I wonder what Mama will say when she sees this? Hmmm?

The Babies & Tab Benoit, the Cat.

I just can't say limberger cheese.

The favorite flower of quite a few people around here, the cocoa flower.

Eyeballing me.

The other eyeballer, eyeballing me.

Tired & asleep.

Very Early On New Year's Eve 2010

Click 'em to big 'em.

I got back home after a bit of New Year's Eve shopping & these three creatures had emerged from the snow.

One snowman, the fourth, couldn't take the heat or the wind or the rain on this warm, wet Dec. 30, 2010.  At least he fell with a carrot in his nose, wait a minute, that should be a carrot as his nose.

These are the snowmen, under the twinkle lights.

Reflection in the rain on Dec. 30.  Unreal.

View from the driver's seat of my truck.

Snow curling off the sauna roof.

From the looks on their faces, neither of them is too thrilled with this gift.

I've Taken A Lot Of Photos In The Last Week, But You Will Need To Have Some Patience, & I Thank You For Your Patience

I pulled my game camera up from the ravine.  The batteries were dead so we are all deprived of The Son-In-Law dancing with his snowshoes on, I wonder if he was slow dancing.  This pic represents my record in terms of the most deer in one frame, seven by my count.

OK, I Wish You A Merry Effing Xmas On This Blog As Well, So Listen Up & Enjoy

Crap, Done Forgot The Daily Doe

As usual, click 'em to big 'em.

A lone snow blower on Chapple Ave., Ashland, Wisco after a recent snowfall.

Mass American Goldfinch take off.  I'd like to blame the cat, Tab Benoit, but I think this was my fault.

American Goldfinch coming in for a landing.

Great camo.  Even though I was quite close to this ruffed grouse, I had a difficult time locating him in the viewfinder.

Even in glass our first Gordon Setter, Pakko, points the bird.  He was a great dog & I made a ton of mistakes with him, but to his credit, he accepted my mistakes & went on to teach me quite a bit about birds, bird dogs, & myself.  I miss him a lot.  He was a beautiful dog, great head, nice top line & not a giant.

I've got me eye on you.

More grouse.

More ruffed grouse, this only snagging a flowering crab apple berry or apple or whatever they call them.  All I know is that the grouse love them.

The Penokees, not particularly towering, eh?

When the not so towering Penokees have some clouds hanging low, they are really hanging low.

Some of Mrs. coldH2Owi's xmas decor. I particularly like the shotgun shell Santa on the far left.  Very cool.

More decor.

xmas tree on the floor warming up.

xmas tree up with just the lights installed.

Sarah, happy at the Black Cat or not so happy with the photographer.  One of the good things about the Black Cat is that children are around.  For old geezers like me, that's a big plus.  & for the most part, the children of the DFHs that come in the coffee shop are well behaved in all the right ways.  Plus, they generally talk to you.

An attempt to solve a knot in my right hip.  A little relief, not much. The wiring in the thing is a bit fouled up so it isn't quite working properly.

The Daily Doe & A Buck Again

Well folks, that's all for xmas eve a.m.  There will be much more to come.  The Babies will be coming on Monday, so we get to have xmas a.m. all over again.  Great!

If you haven't figured it out yet,
Actually, it does help to get a better sense of the subject.  
Sometimes. Later gators.

Friday, That's About All I've Got

Click 'em to big 'em.

The heartbreak, the agony of defeat.  & I was almost done with this cherry bowl, a gift for one of my sisters.  Oh well, they will need to settle for maple or apple.  Still, this hurt.




My friend R., packing up after helping put in the patio door glass to close in the workshop.

The closed in, finally, workshop.  The glass is on the far left.

Here's a close up of the installed old patio doors we used as windows.

Mrs. coldH2Owi adding twinkle lights to the flowering crabapple tree.



 The first snowstorm of the year was a real dud, at least for us.  Apparently, the storm was quite awful south & west of coldH2Owiville.  

Bullseye, left, & Gabriel, right, munch on their grain plus rice bran.

Cold a.m.

Colder a.m.
