Animals stare at Dr. M...the road trip edition

Critters of all kinds stare at me...

 Goats stare at me...
 Even kids!

Goats behind a tree...staring at me...

 And cows!
 Cows GLARE at me

Even puppy cows give me the Stink Eye...

Llamas? Yup...


Along with the occasional jackass...

 Well, sheep are curious...they stare at everybody

But they seem really interested in my camera :-)

Or maybe my hair...
In any event...they stare...
At me...

Baaaaah!!! ...for now...

Scenes from Home

We visited family over Christmas, and it went well! Still, I always seek quiet time by watching birdies at my father-in-law's house and by driving around the countryside looking for sheep :-)

I love stalking their Northern Cardinals!


They have lots of House Finches and a few Goldfinches, too:

And Titmice!

And Bluejays!

And a shy Red-bellied Woodpecker:

And a Chickadee!

Oh, and this one I bagged for Lowandslow:

I have enjoyed my time visiting with dogs:


Dear old brother's dog

 And this Great Pyrenees!

  Who guards these precious sheep

What? You expected family photos? LOL! We've had a great visit with our families, actually...thanks for the many well-wishes, friends. We wish you all the best in the coming year!
