30 Jan., 2010 -- Perfect Day for an Air Show!

Snoopy searches for a perfect runway. It's not easy being a star.

Snoop takes a tow to the runway. How humiliating!

However... Snoop soon takes to the air in a spectacular show of skill, daring and heart-thumping excitement!

Uh Oh.

But the Air Boss announces "He's OK, folks!
And the crowd goes wild with cheering for their Snoop-Hero!

The decorations were elaborate, the beverages were refreshing,

The meal (frog legs and sunflower seeds) was sumptuous.

What a day!

27 Jan., 2010 -- Ring around the moon

There was a rainbow around the moon tonight,
I just couldn't capture all the color. Ice crystals
in the air... forecast is for sleet tomorrow.

Yesterday, there was sunshine in Oklahoma, and sunshine here! Made one trip out and back,
fighting fierce headwinds, but I made the first nibble of 10 on the project of 55 mine sites in Oklahoma, Missouri and Kansas.
Bleak landscapes in the wintertime, but they do make interesting patterns.
I like those big evil spider-like cranes!

These mines are reclaimed after all the digging and scraping, and lots of them become wildlife habitat, or pasture, usually better land than before they were mined. It has been an interesting project seeing the progress of these mines, as I've been photographing some of them two or three times a year for about 10 years.

25 Jan., 2010 -- Gray and blustery, skiff of snow

There they go again... scud-runnin'... Not for me! I'm still
waiting for clear weather to go shoot. Pictures, that is.

These mamas and young-uns bedded down in the neighbor's
pasture a couple of evenings ago.
