Memory Day: Snapshots

This picture was taken 7 years ago today, on July 10, 2017.

Maia was 4 days old, having just come home from the hospital one day earlier. She had eating troubles that necessitated this "syringe taped to my index finger" approach until she could regain her birth weight (6 pounds exactly).

Wildlife Cam Day

In the spring, we moved our wildlife camera so it would cover a major woodland thoroughfare. The trail is regularly used by squirrels, cats, a skunk, a fox, a raccoon, chipmunks, and our resident herd of deer. While downloading the pictures from June to my computer, I came across this chilling entry:

This spot is a good 50 yards from any public road. After cartoonishly proclaiming, "What in the Blair Witch Project is going on back there?!" I applied NCIS ENHANCE! techniques to the images and sent them to my next-door neighbour, whose back fence can be seen in the images. The mystery man returned again a few weeks later, having quickly evolved legs and the ability to walk in bipedal fashion.

While discussing whether it warranted reporting to the Sheriff's Office, my neighbour passed the pictures on to the next neighbour in our row of homes, and the mystery was solved in short order.

So thankfully, there's no sign of creepy rituals or psychedelic drug use in the woods behind our house, and the wife is aware of the skulking. There doesn't seem to be any sign of immediate threat to people or property (although the Mystery Guy's knees and relationship status are both in a questionable state at this point).

Bonus: Here is a picture of the fawn that sleeps in our lawn mower clippings and eats all of our hostas.

Memory Day: Snapshots

This picture was taken 15 years ago today, on July 3, 2009.

We were at a Nags Head beach house called the "Shore Thing" and participated in what may have been the dumbest form of cooking conceived by man, the Low Country Boil. This involved boiling random junk in a pot and then dumping it on top of a trash bag for consumption.
