And what was Mac's reaction to this intruder?

I wouldn't bring him out there with that guy there. So into the big house he went (his normal day time dwelling). Not being totally awake I couldn't make out what it was but my first thought was some kind of raptor, it wasn't until I played with the camera I found out it was the owl. Still not something I'd want to see an encounter with Mac, it's bad enough when Boko goes after him

I'll send them a bill for the $400 it cost us.
I fitted an RVi Toad Charger myself to the Jeep. Good piece of kit and an easy install. You will, of course, need an extra wire in the umbilical if you don't have one already.
Shame about the BMW, I can just imagine you tooling around in that. We were glad to get back in our old Genny - just like putting on some favorite old gloves. Man, what a silky V8 that has!
TTFN

Martin, thanks for the info on RVI - I'll look into it. I hope you have good luck collecting Mickey's money.

Nope, they were not trying to sell me the BMW and as a matter of fact when the Lincoln place called Enterprise they asked if they could provide a Lincoln. The showed up with a brand new F-150 crew cab, short bed but I had to turn it down. Not enough room in the CG behind or in front of the MH.

That was it, the X3. Just a scad bigger than a Fiat and twice the size of a Smarty.

And while I typically don't sauce my Q, I did sample the 3 versions of house sauce. They were quite good, but I still prefer the naked Q. I would dip about anything else in any of them. Thumbs up for sure.

Triple D rating stands.

Chicharones
And chicharones back atcha! Make mine plain, though, dullard that I am. Habaņeros are beyond me these days, not to mention Ghost peppers. That leaves more for Martin. 🙄

My okra plants (4 only) are budding, so I'll soon have some pods for frying and making gumbo. Mmmm-mmmm!

Chicharones, indeed! 🙄

We have been kayaking 4 times in the past 10 days. Just can't get enough of it on these lovely Michigan lakes. Found a place that rents a single or double yak for $15 for 4 hours. We have taken advantage. Kate uses our 10' yak and I rent a single seat 12 footer. Did a 5.5 mile round trip on the Grand River today. Kate paddled for 45 minutes or so then went back, sat on a bench on shore and read her novel. Wonder if it was something I said ......
No, it was cuz you didn't find any berries!...or the bears beat ya to 'em. (...and you stayed out the whole 4 hours? I'd have been tempted. Such a deal, $15!)

Next on the Henry Ford list might be the home in southern FL. The Fords and the Edisons spent time together there & those museums are quite interesting too.

Cheers!
PS: Do you know/play "Y'all Come"? Simple chords, but really fun lyrics.

Incompatible! Great way to shake up the day, though. What was s/he?

I saw an unusual lump on a dead oak branch last evening and found it to be either a Long-eared or a Great Northern owl. We've been hearing it, but hadn't been able to see it. This one actually looked, in silhouette, like a giant cat up there, ears and all. I think it must be the Long-eared.

Hi Mac! Hi Boko!

That was an owl? I'd have thought it was a hawk, but you must have gotten a better look w/ your camera zoom than I can get on this phone w/ its zoom. Either way, incompatible! 😲

It very well may be a type of hawk, it was hard to tell and I thought it was an owl cuz it seemed kinda chunky to me to be a hawk, but I could be wrong, I'm not really a "bird" person

Edit - besides, there's like 7,000 species of birds so it's hard to track them all.

After seeing that pic, yea, totally agree and it makes sense because I see these guys all over the place on top of light posts on the highway. They sometimes are spread out every two-three light posts each and watch for little rodents running along the highway. I try to point them out to Mac or Boko when we're driving but they seem too interested in watching things go by at eye level.
