Okay, I know that many of you had received an e-mail saying that I was in trouble in the Philipines and needed money. I assure you, I am alive and well and in the United States. And, trust me, any checks that I receive will be destroyed. It was a scam. Some hacker decided to entertain himself by stealing my contact list, e-mail account, and just making a heck of a lot of trouble for me. I now have a new account and my new address that you can contact me by is: firstname.lastname@example.org. I am sorry about any inconvenience and/or any trouble that this hacker may have caused.
I have found that it is easy to laugh about it this morning, but I can assure you that it was no laughing matter yesterday.
In keeping with my practice of including a photograph with any post, this is a turtle that I photographed many, many years ago near Lajitas, Texas. It was shot on film. I included this image, because many of you enjoyed my previous turtle photo. I do, at times, photograph creatures that aren’t of the avian variety. You can click on the image to see an enlargement.
