Twice on the way home from work, I stopped to help goats who were stuck in a fence.  They were guarded by 2 large, white dogs.  I have no idea what breed they were.  The last time I stopped, one of the dogs followed me along the fence line, (on the other side of the fence).  He barked a few times and gave me a wary look, but I think he finally realized I was not a threat.  The goat wasn't so sure.  I had a hard time getting him out.  John

I used to bring my camera in the car and take a lot of pictures. I think the phones take bad images and really should do that again.

In the evening last night we had 2 thunderstorms, rare this time of year to have rain. THis morning my door was not covered in grasshoppers at work and they were not covering the sidewalks. I wonder if the rain and lack of them is related?

The homested next door to where I work has something like 6 donkeys and I see them in the field a lot and hear them many days. I know I have seen a llama somewhere, but for the life of me I cannot remember where here there are a couple. There is a place on the way to town that has 2 emus and a few places with chickens that run loose (annoying when they are on the road).

Turkey buzzards we got.  One morning on the way to work, I saw about 20 of them all together sitting on some fencing.  The morning Sun made them a brilliant red, white and black.  Made a good opening shot for a movie.  If I hadn't been driving I'd have had to have a picture.  I'd never seen a turkey buzzard in Illinois but they're all over down here.  Not so many sheep around here but there are a few.  There's a farm not far from here with donkeys and llamas.  I myself, seem to have a mole farm.  I never see him, but I can sure tell where he's been.  He's been here for years.  John

Yesterday on the way home I saw a turkey vulture sitting on a post and further down the road 3 large hawks on telephone poles. Plus there is a rance on the way that has sheep and a month or so ago they were shorn. THey look so cute, thin white sheet with black heads and feet.

I've never seen a seagull or a pelican around here.  There are cranes and blue herons.  I may have missed a seagull or 2, but you can't miss a pelican.  John
