Alpacas   Over our morning coffee, as we looked out, on our back yard, we pondered exactly how nice it would be to see alpacas roaming through the trees and maybe, going down to the river, for a drink of water. We actually contemplated what we would need to do, to give them a...

Moa Yes, More Chickens!     Moa, in Hawaiian, means chicken, and it is not unusual to see these lovely creatures wondering around, shall we say – free as a bird!     Whether the majority of these wild chickens are domesticated animals that have gotten free, descendants of the Red Junglefowl, brought to...

Old Friends at Kentucky Downs   We were in Kentucky and Kate said she wanted to pet a horse; not always do wishes come true so easily, but on this day it was just that simple.     The first time we pulled off the I-65, in Franklin, Kentucky, was when we were traveling...

  Lorikeet     I do not do well with the notion of caged animals – any animal – be it man, a dog, or any beautiful creature that belongs in the wild. I think one of the reasons I enjoy feeding the wildlife, in my yard, is because they are free to roam,...

  My Dogs     Recently, I realized that I have never shared pictures of any of my dogs, in the column, though there are a few in the That Is All For Now Family Photo Albums.   I am not sure why I have not, nor why I have decided to add them now;...

  Intrude         I had previously been to the North Carolina Museum of Art, which has an excellent collection, is free to the public, and is staffed by volunteers, including the grounds keeping, and thus on a recent stay in the area, I was not sure I would stop again.      ...

Canadian Geese     It is not uncommon, in New England, to spy flocks of geese, especially in the autumn, stopping by for a quick bite to eat, on their way south.     This particular group amused me with their choice of dinner; I know I am being silly, perhaps they were in a...
