Toujours la pluie

Always the rain…it just didn’t stop this year. It’s like being on the bayou without the bayou. Everything is so lush and green and fresh and green. When the rain is heavy all other sounds just disappear and you can imagine yourself just about anywhere...verdant and very wet. What else to do but crank up the zydeco and laissez les bons temps rouler!
Wetness out the back door at Newman last Friday night.
Don't look at that!

And don't forget Lil' Nathan either. Bonjour mes amis.

Newman Lake Wild things

Bambi and his brother are hungry enough to eat a 'boat'! Incredbile how tame the local deer have become over the years. P.S. Bambi and 'bro' later showed up with twins-who knew!

Still hungry and getting a bit pushy.

The girls caught a snake! I believe this type is called a Yellow Bellied Racer.

A large moth frozen to a screen-it flew away the next day.

Same with the bat.
