Things that are AWESOME...

Recommended Posts

My GF and I took my daughter out to a farm yesterday afternoon in order to do the hayride, pick a pumpkin thing.  We get there and the storefront is open but more or less deserted.  GF is incredulous, "I've come here every year of my life, just about and they're always packed, something's wrong."  We go in and talk to the owner, who somewhat apologetically said they're not opening the pumpkin patch until next weekend, he's basically retired, and his kids are running the show.  

Then he looks at my daughter and asks, "What are you guys driving?" We tell him we have a 4WD.  He then says, "alright, why don't you hop in your car, pull around behind the building and follow me, I'll be in the white van."  We load up and pull around, he leads us back off the road and up what I assume is the hayride path into the field.  We get to the top and see the whole, completely untouched pumpkin field.  He tells us to take what we want, $.50 per pound.  We have a good time with the kiddo wandering around for awhile, ohhing and ahhing.  We select a few pumpkins, drive back down and pay, thanking him on the way out. 

Nice guy, made a little girl's day.   (and himself about fifty bucks, but still.)

Found a nice gathering of Prarie Dogs while cruising in South Dakota, laid down on the ground with some granola and had a good time, got some awesome shots!

Those critters were kinda portly, innit?

Indeed they were, well fed Prarie dogs, looking more like woodchucks

I'm assuming that if they don't pork out during the summer, they don't live through winter.

I did read that they stock up for the long harsh winters up here, as there's not much food. It was cool, I was at the site in the AM and I was seeing then play, but couldn't get too close, but I pull out a granola bar and the game changes 😂

As a person of Northern European ancestry, I have similar genes.  Unfortunately I don't have those times of famine....

Prairie dogs are great, but they dog carry the plague. Gotta be real careful around them.

I didn't know where to put this when I saw it this morning.  Should we have a  general hockey thread for non-NHL stuff?

"jumpin around the country" black hills of South Dakota, Custer state park, Badlands, Mt Rushmore, Devils tower, Spearfish, etc. 

This country has some real nice treasures

The clouds and autumn colors yesterday in northern PA were... awesome. And today is looking like a repeat.

Allegany State Park (Quaker side if anybody's curious) this afternoon. The photo doesn't do the scene justice. The light was perfect and so was the subject. Joyce Kilmer was right.
