Roadkill Cafe or Buzzard Crossing

I spent some time trying to catch up on some of my blog buddies...I had to laugh when I scrolled down in Mary's post....there are so many times when I will be going to post a picture and she will post one so similar.
Most times I go ahead and post mine but sometimes I don't...
The past two or three drives we have went on, I have been trying to see an eagle but all I can see are buzzards. LOTS of buzzards. I have seen them perched on rocks and on logs at Bridgeton and Mansfield and I have never seen that before. So strange.

And then I saw all those perched along the river in Mary's post and realize I haven't seen anything yet. LOL
**************
I had to do a couple things this morn, then I went down to Sarah's...we took Lorelei on her first visit to the library. She was attracted to some trucks and toys they had...and to the other kids. She just loves other little kids. One little girl was so quiet and so well behaved, but Lorelei made friends with her mommy. Another little girl talked to her a bit more.

What was fun was the drive there and back. Lorelei was in high form...she sat in her carseat doing her fake laugh trying to get us to laugh, which we did. It is just so funny to hear her. And she sang a little bit for us...such a sweet little voice.

I was sitting here looking back at some of the little videos of her...and Roger said 'you can almost see her halo.' I was also thinking how blessed she is to have her daddy. I was thinking about how when he walks in the room, her whole face just lights up...then I thought about that is the reaction she has when we she sees us. She sure makes life interesting.

Great shots of the buzzard! I scrolled down your blog a few pages and enjoyed my journey. I love the bottle tree. I, too, wonder where they got so many blue bottles! I enjoyed you quilt pictures. I'm a quilter, too! You machine quilt your own...do you use your everyday machine, or do you have a longarm? Have a great day! ~karen

Hey, great minds think alike. I've only seen a buzzard like that once and it was flying high in the sky looking for roadkill :)
That puts you in a pretty special category...Isn't it wonderful when that happens.

Grandchildren are a great addition to family, aren't they?

Those birds are enormous! wow.

It looks as if the Roadkill Cafe was doing a great business and you got wonderful pictures. I'm glad you're taking Lorelei to the library.

Buzzards sometimes get a bad rap, but they are such fine and useful birds! We have red-headed and black-headed buzzards here.

Fun interesting pictures! :-D

I saw 12 of them one time not long ago, circling over a house--and wondered f someone or some thing was dead inside.

This was funny! We do seem to see a lot of the same things and want to post them :-) I think southern Indiana must have an over abundance of vultures! You can figure that your readers don't necessarily read my blog, so what does it matter? I just post what I feel like posting and so should you. You write better stories than I do....I like how your mind works :-)

There seem to be tons of turkey buzzards around. Is it my imagination that there's a lot of roadkill this year?
