A Hunting Trophy?

My nephew got a new bow for his birthday. With plenty of practice he got a deer when he went out hunting on the first try. He was excited. Is this a hunting trophy? Not sure of your opinion but I think my nephew might think it is.

Book Review: I’M TIRED OF BEING ORDINARY, ARE YOU?

DSCN0309

WHAT DREW ME TO THIS BOOK? 

The illustration of a kitty cat looking into the mirror with a lion looking back at him caught my attention as well as the title of the book.

MY SYNOPSIS:

The book, I’M TIRED OF BEING ORDINARY, ARE YOU?  is a 52 week advice on being extraordinary written by WM. ALLEN. It’s an entertaining, humorous book of advice with quotes and film references. We all want to be extraordinary and we also want to reach our full potential.

PUBLISHER’S SYNOPSIS

Do you dream about being extraordinary but think your status as a merely ordinary person is etched in stone? The truth is that it is never too late to change your life. The key is determination—-guided by a little sage advice from another “ordinary” individual in pursuit of an amazing life.

I’m Tired of Being Ordinary, Are You? is an entertaining and empowering guide that will change your life in one year–if you let it. Comprised of fifty-two steps that will lead you to the life you imagined (but deemed impossible), each weekly lesson begins with a joke and ends with a movie suggestion to keep you laughing and inspired as you undertake the difficult journey that lies ahead.

Wake up to your potential, and put your dreams into action. Remember: this is your life–why not discover just how incredible it can be?

WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THE BOOK:

There was a lot I liked about this book. It was entertaining, it had jokes and movie references that you could laugh at. Also, I liked the fact it was divided into 52 weeks or 1 year. Everybody’s life is a journey, this book just helps you with your journey and reach your potential.  Love the title and the illustration of the kitten looking in the mirror with a lion looking back. In my opinion, this could be interpreted as kitten just being ordinary but when the kitten becomes extraordinary the kitten  sees the lion in the mirror.

WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE ABOUT THE BOOK:

This book was well written and the illustration on the front cover was well done. I can’t think of anything at this time that I didn’t like.

WHERE THIS BOOK CAN BE BOUGHT: 

Wm. Allen’s book is available online at Amazon, Barnes & Noble or Books – A – Million.

A Pleasant Surprise

I named this picture A Pleasant Surprise because my nephew and his family thought the deer ate all his sunflowers. As it turns out, some of those sunflowers still bloomed. He was thrilled because he put a lot of work into planting them.

Below is the result of lots of hard work by this 15-year-old.

Our Night Time Visitor

The other night we had something exciting happen again. A bear came into our backyard. We think he may have even laid down in our daisies around that are around are back deck. As you see in the picture, he went to our salt lick then walked toward the camera. My neighbor saw his paw prints in the grass and measured them. The paw prints measured 1 inches long and 8 inches wide. I know to some that seeing a bear in your backyard  doesn’t seem exciting but it is for us. Then to know he laid down in our daisies by our deck. Wish I would have had a game camera mounted on the deck facing the backyard. Still got pictures of the bear though.

Below are pictures of the bear that visited us. Also, there are pictures where “Big Daddy” Bear laid.

WHAT I’VE BEEN DOING SINCE MEMORIAL DAY

Above is a slide show I’ve put together of the Memorial Day Evening 2017 Rainbow and Before and After Pictures of the trees down to the shed to the trees being cut down because they were in a dangerous position. I hope you enjoy the Slide show.

Hi everyone, sorry I haven’t blogged for a while but my family and I have been dealing with an unexpected emergency. Let me explain. On Memorial Day Afternoon after everyone had gone we sat down to watch the news about 4 PM Eastern Time. Within 5 minutes we heard a crash. Our Wild Cherry tree came down on our shed.

There was a group of 3 trees and the one tree came down on the shed and the other 2 trees got stuck in our 2 pine trees which put the trees in a dangerous position.  The fire department put caution tape around the trees and the area where it was dangerous.   🙂🙂 I’m happy to say the 3 Wild Cherry trees are down.🙂

Project number 2 is cleaning out the shed so we can tear it down.  🙂I’m happy to say this is done.🙂

Project number 3 is getting the 2 Pine Trees cut down that the then buy a new shed and it get it built and get everything in it.  🙂I’m happy to say the 2 Pine Trees are finally cut down.🙂

Project number 4 is buying a new shed and getting it built and put in its place.

Then on Father’s Day what happens, a branch brought a power line down behind the neighbor’s garage. The next thing we know there is a big bright orange ball were seeing and that was from the transformer blowing. So no electricity until early afternoon.

When we get a new shed, I will share the pictures with you.

I’m happy to say Dad now has a new shed and I added those pictures to the slide show.

😎😎I’m happy to be back photo-blogging.😎😎

 

 

 

POETRY THROUGH PICTURES OF NATURE

The saying A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words is so True. We have at least 3 new Fawns. The  pictures below are literally poetry through Pictures of Nature.

THE PATH IN LIFE HARDLY EVER TAKEN

In life, there are

Many paths that

We can take but

The question remains

What path are you

Going to take in the fork of the road?

Are you going to take the easy way out

And take the Path that followers take or

Will you take that fearful path that is

Hardly ever taken by anyone?

Before you decide, you should know

That if you take the path that followers take,

You will eventually find darkness but if

You want to take the path that is

Hardly ever taken as leaders do,

You will eventually find light at the

End of the road.

It is is like comparing

Darkness to Light or

Friendship to no Friends.

So when you choose to be a leader or follower,

You are choosing to follow your dream

In life or to to give up on your dream .

If you decide to follow your dream in life

And not give up on yourself, the

Path that are about to take is a

Path full of hardships but not to worry,

Because leaders will eventually

Reach their goal.

So if you want to take the

Easy way out,  You can just

Be a follower

Instead of a leader.

Being a leader might be harder

But in the end, believe me

It is well worth taking

The path that is

Hardly ever taken.
