Okay, You talked me into it…….


Hello, to all my dear readers.   I am answering your call to resume posting here.  I was overwhelmed with notes and comments of good wishes.  I hadn’t realized how many people really read my posts regularly.  Thanks very much to all so very much.  Does this mean I have to return the gifts?  Gee, I really like the car.

So, I am glad to be back, writing my “whimiscal” posts, as dear reader Michelle Edwards put it..  I really do enjoying writing, especially when I feel healthy and happy.

The weather has been a bit on the nasty side the past few days here in San Angelo, but I have tried to not let that stop me.  This photo that I am featuring in this comeback post is a Red-tailed Hawk, that I photographed during a faint, cold mist.  Fortunately my long lens has a rain hood.

We, Ann and I, were driving out near Twin Buttes Reservoir when off to the left was the hawk sitting on a dead tree branch.  I was able to maneuver the car off the road into position for a good photo.  He was about 150 yards away.  I thought I was somewhat hidden behind some brush, but apparently he, with his magnificent keen vision picked me out.  I got off a couple of exposures as he perched, but then he decided to leave the building.  I quickly continued shooting and got this photo as he push off.  I hope you like it.

Red-tailed Hawk.

Referring to the rehab the mentioned above, I will explain.  As you know I have been diagnosedd with Pulmonary Fibrosis.  I have had problems with getting short winded when doing physical activity.  The rehab involves going to Shannon Pulmonary Clinic three times a week, and using their workout machines.  A regimen of twelve weeks, of which I have four weeks left.  They are designed to help me control my breathing and strengthen my lungs.  The trainers are great, I haven’t fallen off the machines yet, and I am feeling much improvement.

So, I will end this post with that.  I will try to write more posts at least one per week, perhaps more often.  I am taking all of this one day at a time.

By the way, I have been adding new photos to my gallery.  I would appreciate any purchases that you might make.  Click this link, https://bobzeller.wordpress.com/photo-album-guide.  Or click the button at the top of this page.  You can always contact me at bobzeller@pobox.com for more information.

Now I need to see if I can return that car by Priority Mail. 🙂

HAPPY BIRDING!!
