    Today’s last photo is of one of our newer residents…that someone didn’t want anymore and dropped off like a piece of garbage.  This ‘calico’ is running around and living on its own but is being fed by someone or several ‘someone’s’ but WILL NOT let you get too close!  We have one other feline in a orange coat that has been ‘wild’ here for over 15 years now and considers itself the ‘boss cat’ of the park and has taken exception to this new intruder to the point of getting into a spitting and yowling fight with it outside my home the other day.  My neighbor is an animal lover and makes sure that they keep apart as best she can as well as feeding the ducks from our pond.

    Here at another home here in the park, is this happy little bush proudly showing off it’s own blooms!  Pretty, aren’t they?

    Nature, down here in Florida, is providing her own brand of beauty of the Season and this bush is resplendent with a multitude of flowers happily blossoming beside one of our home-owners carports.

    Another decorated manufactured home here in our park.  Without the snow I’m used to, these decoration’s seem ‘lacking’ something…but I’ll get used to it I suppose.  Throughout the park are many and varied ways of decorating….but the next pix or two will show ‘other’ ways of ‘decorating’ that are so pretty.

    One of our home-owners did a LOT of woodworking and this is the result he is sharing with the other park residents.

    Good morning Sharon and BYC friend’s!  What a great group of photo’s already shared.  Sharons swans; the old barn; all the different birds, etc.  Mmarnee I’ve noticed that your cups seem a bit small in size while the other hanging cups were quite a bit bigger…and maybe that’s why the birds don’t seem too interested?  Just wondering!  Here in Florida, there are many ways of decorating the fronts of homes here in our park.  Here is one imaginative home-owner decorated his pink Flamingo.  I cut off the head but it also had a little Santa Hat on, too.

    Margba and anyone else interested in this.  My Maternal Grandmother was a Free Methodist Church member and played the piano for them.  Once a year they held a ‘Camp meeting’ four miles west of my home town.  Before a road was built to where they held the camp meeting a railroad ran past it and the folks who attended, spent a week camping out there.  They’d ride the train and a farmer charged them 50 cents to haul their ‘stuff’ up the hill to the camp ground area where they camped out for a week (the farmer made more then than he did all year).  One year Reverend George Bennard came to the camp meeting and he is the man who wrote “The Old Rugged Cross.”  At that time it had only 2 verses and the final two were added years later by someone else.  ANYWAY, this song was NOT even written down yet as a song, so the Reverend sang it to my Maternal Grandmother who THEN wrote it down to play.  (I had an Uncle who attended it at 5 years of age and he related what he had seen, to me, and I recorded his ‘memories’ of it on tape…which I relate now to you.)  This song had been sung only ONE TIME before this happened at another church meeting and it was NOT recorded yet, on paper.  Well, my Grandmother played this during the next meeting.  Now at these camp meetings a preacher would PREACH TWO HOURS; a rest was given and then some other preacher would preach TWO HOURS.  Once the song had been presented and learned by the attendee’s it wasn’t long before the ‘tired’ folks heard a deep bass voice begin the song: “On a hill far away….” interrupting the preacher and everyone would begin to sing it….leaving the preacher hanging until he took part as well.  Then the preaching would go on again.  This went on all day every day from then on till the camp meeting was over!  (This told to me by my uncle and I’ve no reason to doubt it.)  A bit of real history for my family which I am proud to relate.  Rev. Bennard then took the song to another camp meeting, where it too was sung over and over and ….well….you know the rest of the story!

    Sharon, I have to post every pix singly anyway as I haven’t learned how to post multiple pix in one posting.  Each photo I have to go back to PB; choose and then post through all the sequence’s…but I don’t mind as I’ve now done it so long it’s easier now and allows me time to carefully choose what to post and show my BYC friend’s!  Maybe someday I’ll learn how to multiple post but it isn’t important yet, to me.  LOL

    Stelios, I have a 52 inch Samsung LCD at my home in Michigan, mounted on the wall over a false fireplace and a 39 inch one here in Florida on a TV stand.  BOTH are GREAT!   One of my widows had a Visio and has always had problems and last weekend, it burned out.  You wont be sorry with Samsung and the 50 inch in a larger room will be so good to watch.  Almost like being in a movie and the ‘sharpness’ is absolutely fantastic.  You’d love it!  Good luck!

    Good morning Brother Red.  Yes, Jesus is the “Rock” that we have put our feet upon for Salvation to hold and sustain us in this ever-increasing world of sin.

    Today’s last photo is of a MUCH LARGER bird with long, long legs that allowed it to fish in much deeper water for its food.  I know each bird I’ve shown has its own name for that particular species, but I don’t know any of them to identify them…so you’ll just have to enjoy them like I’ve done.

    Now, in this photo, it looks a bit like a ‘turtle’ is in the water….but it is a bird that throws its wings up over it’s head to shade its eye’s so it can see into the water for the little fish it eats.  It would shade its eyes; grab a small fish and move on a few steps and repeat the procedure.  In the background are some bigger birds with long-thin bills that cruised deeper water here in the bird sanctuary on Sanibel Island.
