Sacrifice And Fight For What Is Right

There is an old Kristofferson song that begins.

I will fight and I will die for freedom. Up against an eagle or a bear. I’ll defend what I believe in the land of Liberty…

The time again is upon us to make the choice to do what is right even if that means to sacrifice and fight if we must.

As free people make the correct decision to do all we can against Putin and the Russian aggression to take over a free nation. Stand up beside the Ukrainian people.

Stop it now or the world may wind up being in chains another line in the song.

I am old but not to weary to stand up for what is right. How about you?

Finding Peace Amongst Fear

Ran across this you tube video from ” Just A Few Acres Farm”. It put into words much better than I ever could pretty much my thoughts on Fear. I felt it worthy of sharing in today’s world. Click on the link below to check it out…

Working On The Farm

For whatever reason I have lost the interest to photograph this winter. Instead I have been working on the farm. Clearing out years of junk in our old pole barn. Tearing down an the barn and old falling down goat shed. Pretty much with just a crowbar.

I finally have them all on the ground and sorted in piles of old barn lumber and tin. Much will need to be burned some can be cut up on to useable parts for future projects. Such as one raised bed for herbs I already put together with the “Little Womens” help.

Not sure if I might wake up tomorrow and have regained the want to for photography or what? At the present time I think I will continue to clean up the old place. Lots of ditches full of junk needing cleaned up. Old fencing fallen down and overgrown. I guess just feel as if I need to do this now while I am still able to do all the physical work required. So check back later if you have time to see if my desire has returned to capture the natural world hear abouts. Thank You for your time and stopping by…

Mostly Rebuilding At One Eagles Nest

Been busy, not getting out much to photograph. Did get out yesterday morning. The eagles were busy too repairing the nest that had the upper half blown out by the storm as the tornado passed nearby. Will be busy as well for the next week with Christmas, so will not post again until around New Years. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year until next time…

Move Forward And Rebuild

I visited a nest that was damaged in the high winds. Not directly in the tornado path, still receiving a large loss of the top half to almost two thirds of the nest. I was only there a short while but one eagle brought grass in. The mate flying in shortly after. They then flew out and mated on a branch by the lake. Accept and move on it seemed their actions might suggest. My little woman asked the kids and grandkids if the gifts we would have spent on them could be given to purchase needs for those struck by the tornado. They agreed so my wife and youngest daughter purchased and delivered needed items the day before. My wife and I assisted one of her cousins in covering the end of their house that lost a garage and breezeway to cover one end of the house that had part of the roof destroyed. Patching together the trusses and one wall and covering with metal from the destroyed garage and tarps. I am happy to report how all the folks there just accepted what happened and worked together to move on. Not hearing one complaint…
