livin' in the fast lane

wow...sometimes things change so fast !
I am back in Ontario for the summer ... my other life :)
just driving along the other day, heres what i saw on the side of the road.

he seemed quite intrigued by my car  ( it's a nice blueberry colour and the sun was shining ) .... or maybe it was me :)

he was very close to me... within 2 meters, between the fence and the road.    Its a back road called Orchard Line between Bayfield and Goderich, Ontario.

he would strut about, then make this "gak gak gaaak" sound,  then his tail feathers go up.   SO beautiful, as he does a full turn for me !
his little performance / romance lasted maybe 15 gorgeous minutes until another car came along.
he didnt seem to like that they spoiled the moment, so he left.
i was honoured, really.  Such a cutie!

Have a lovely day.... all for now.
Peace out.

morning visitors

i had visitors yesterday morning. 

my neighbour called and told me to look out my window.
these two beauties were just hangin' out eating
( ....shhh i think they escaped )

i cant imagine that what they were eating was better than what they had at home

but who am i to say.....

they live in the barn behind the crooked purple house that you can see between the tree

so, maybe its the scenery
or maybe the grass is actually greener on my side     :)

they hung out all day
but at some point, they either wandered home or someone came for them

looking at the sunset and the horses
reminds me of a song.....

o yeah....

all for now

2nd annual birthday shooting

Happy 2012 !!
i have been away in ontario again, to celebrate the holidays with my family and friends .... ( ontario friends.)

sooo....yeah, i had my 50th birthday while i was away.
it was fun..... not as scary as i imagined.   ;)
my son took me shooting again.

thats our target.  we each had one.

thats the red flag in the sun.  i think its a cool pic.

8 x 57mm mauser in the k98k rifle
thats the ammunition used for this rifle

thats my son

thats me

 on the stock
( ? ....i have no idea if thats what its called.... )
... ah, he says its called the barrel
and receiver,
the little symbol of the eagle clutching the swastika,
is a Nazi firing proof.
it means that the rifle was tested and approved.

heres a close up

this one is 9mm luger in the P38
i really liked shooting this one  hehe

theres our targets

mine.... i didnt even hit the paper with the rifle at 50 yards.
and not with the hand gun at 25 yards
what i did hit was at 10 yards...... it was SO cold out again, its the best i could do.  i barely wounded him. 
my son did much better !!

Im 50 now.  I may as well know how to shoot.

heres a commemorative video
i love it

hehe thats me (kidding)

all for now
have an amazing and awesome 2012  !!
