Say bye-bye!

To avoid the heat of the day, we headed to Wal-mart late Thursday evening. We drove through the strip pits on the way...the sun was already gone by the time we got there. We had to struggle to see anything. And believe me, there was not much to see. We saw about half a dozen deer....normally at that time of day it is not uncommon to see 20 or 30.

We did see on Great Blue Heron in flight...and Roger spotten a pheasant out in a field. Or we assume it was one. It was too dark to see any color, but going by the profile that is what we thought it was.

I am wanting to go out there sometime late and just drive around after dark....would just love to go and sit and see what I could hear and see. A lot of the fields had been mowed....just wish they would mow them all for a change. This one field has not been mowed in years and it is a mess of weeds, but I suppose that is good for the wildlife.
Yesterday, our thermometer read 111º at one point. I know that seems extreme but I really believe that our thermometer is right. On a positive note, today was supposed to be another hot one, but instead the break in the extreme heat has come. It is only 87º right now!
