High Temperature: 85F
Yesterday afternoon during our walk we were treated to our own private airshow. Just beyond our western property line, a biplane roared along, dipping and turning above the treeline, back and forth across the sky as it laced our neighbor's field (though we couldn't see that part of the show) with fertilizer or perhaps an herbicide. Although the thought of being in a plane of any size now gives me the willies, I couldn't help but think of how much fun the pilot must have been having.
A second, less spectacular show coincided with my early afternoon walk today with the dogs. As luck would have it, I had brought along my camera. Though I did not have my long distance lens, I managed to get a few far off shots.
Critter note: Kel spotted this fuzzy, downright cuddly Oklahoma Brown Tarantula on the driveway in the evening yesterday. Despite a childhood and early adult fear of spiders, I've come to love [some of] them. Now, I won't be picking up one any time soon, but I find them endearing. Apparently they are shy and gentle and would rather skedaddle than bite. I learned that - interestingly - they migrate (to where??) in the fall and sometimes can be seen moving in large numbers. That would be quite a sight!
