Another new baby

This one's not mine. I spotted this cow and her newborn calf while en route to the feed store. Since I had the road to myself, I parked the truck for a moment and snapped a few photos of the calf taking its first few wobbly steps.

Another sunset

I took this photo from a roadside overlook at the junction of the Sauk and Osage rivers near Osceola. I've passed the spot dozens of times. Usually I've forgotten to bring a camera, or I miss the turn among the curves and trees. Monday evening I was prepared and lucky. It wasn't the most magnificent sunset ever, but it was a most fitting end for a mild, pleasant day.

We're waiting...

for tomatoes....Toss them over the fence NOW.

There's nothing happier than a duck with a tomato.

Both ducks are Pekins, but the one on the right might have a bit of Crested Pekin in his family tree. Note the puff of feathers - he looks like he has a cotton ball stuck to the side of his head. Guess that makes him an odd duck.
