Charley's Place

A new gym...excuse me, "fitness center" has opened in our home town! I'm a charter member!
The proprietor, Charley Horse. He says pardon the mess. We have brooms, but a lack of commitment to the use of them, lol!
Ill Penguin, our don't want to mess with him
 We have boxing equipment, including this heavy bag!
Charley spared no expense on equipment...he plans to add a speed bag later
 Look at this state of the art exercise bike!
And this high-tech piece of equipment!
Some of our equipment was custom-designed...
Finally, we maintain a strong commitment to recycling and sustainability.
Join up today! Or maybe just take a long walk and enjoy life, the universe, and everything.

Snow, Crows, Moon and Hawks

It has been an odd weather week in OH, and the critters are restless.

 There was a full moon
 Maybe that explains all the crows

 Lots and lots of crows
 Bright moon
 Cold wind, spitting snow
 And lots
 and lots
 of crows

 And more snow
 and ninja squirrels
 I see hawks all the time, but today we saw two together!
 This one immediately flew up to a higher perch
 This one sailed low into a cornfield
 where it hid from us
 While the first one went on guard, circling overhead
 Giving us a good flash of tail feathers
Yes, you ARE a red-tailed hawk!
