Memorial Day Weekend Odds and Ends

I haven’t shot a photo in a couple of days.  Catching  up on other “stuff”, so I can get out in the field soon.  Ann and I both had doctor appointments to take care of, plus looking into getting some fence replaced.  But most important, we also purchased a new car.  The Mercury minivan was about six years old, so we decided it was time.  We traded for a 2011 Ford Edge.  A great vehicle.  I think they call it a crossover, whatever that is. 🙂

Got a new sign designed, too.  I did it with my Printshop software.  Looks pretty neat, if I do say so myself.  Here are some pics.

On Monday I think we are going to head for Eldorado again.  The Johnsons saw the Crested Caracaras again on their nest.  Maybe I can get a shot this time. 

Oh, I almost forgot.  My computer crashed Saturday afternoon for a bit.  I don’t know what exactly happened, but I lost ALL of my photographs.  Fortunately, I had backed them up last on May 24, so I only lost the images that I shot since then.  I got the others restored and backed up again a little while ago.  It is now 5:30 AM CST.

One thing, I hope these new car images are okay after I publish this post, as the originals were some of the ones I lost.  Not being a computer nerd, I don’t know how that works.

So everybody have a safe Memorial Day, and honor those who fought and died so we can keep this freedom.  I am just going to sluff off and maybe watch the Indy500.  That has been a tradition with me ever since I was a kid and listened to it on the radio with my dad.

Happy birding!!!
