My wife just reminded me that I hadn’t posted for quite awhile. After doing some extensive research, I found that she is correct. It has been nearly a month. I guess the dog days of summer got ahold of me. One thing, though, and I think it is a plausible excuse. I have some cancerous spots on the left side of my face that I am treating. That involves smearing that Efudex chemical on my face for three weeks. It is painful, itchy and downright distracting. I quit that part of the treatment a couple of days ago, now I am using a soothing ointment to help with the healing. Hopefully it should be cleared completely in another two to three weeks.
Because I am suppose do avoid the sun during the duration of the treatment, I haven’t been out too much. But using a wide-brim hat, I did make a few short trips.
Some news items concerning San Angelo State Park. It has pretty much recovered from the drastic storm that hit it about a month ago. They are still trimming broken tree branches and doing general cleanup, but overall it looks pretty good. A few days ago they replaced the busted fence around the bird blind, and repaired some other damage to the building itself.
Here are a few images that I have gotten during those brief outings to the park. Click on any one of them to see some nice enlargements.
The birds are returning to the blind, now that it is back to normal operation again. The fall and winter birds should be returning very soon.
