Friends : My friends Bruce and Pam are in the park so I have some company to hang out with. We took a ride into T or C today and stopped at Walmart and went to lunch and I got a free lunch, thanks Bruce πŸ™‚

Exercise: I walked just over two miles today. I am still not up to speed on my walking, but it is getting better as I lose weight.

Weather: While setting around talking with my friend the wind came in from somewhere and it is blowing pretty hard. The temperatures have been just super over the past few days.

Ash-throated Flycatcher

Pictures: I seen the Flycatchers while out walking the bird trail several times and they were not too shy.

I think this bird is thinking “Hmmmm, I wonder what that Fly would taste like?”

Crissal Thrasher

Pictures: I took this shots a few days ago and kind of pass it up because of all the stuff between my camera and the bird and it was not very well exposed but I shoot Raw and in the end I got a good bit of detail out of it. Still not a great shot but I got my bird anyways πŸ™‚ .

Chores: I went into the city and did the chores today and my friend Dale rode along and the company helped pass the boring chore time by. Laundry, jugs of drinking water and a little shopping all done, so I should be good for another week.

Sate Parks and Holidays: The state parks fill up pretty much on the holiday weekends with families enjoying time off from their jobs and school and they have themselves a good time. The end of the weekend the parks empty out fast and it goes back to a few full-timers and vacationers from here and there and the pace slows down to a crawl. The birds, animals and I like the crawl pace πŸ™‚
