  1. Found this in a old scrap book. Amazing how the landscape has changed since 1938
  2. Very sorry to hear this news. Bill was a true gentleman and will be missed. My most sincere condolences to his family and loved ones.
  3. Happy Birthday Steve! I hope you have a great day. You're right ... I haven't been on SOL for awhile. All is well just busy as hell.
  4. Wild Birds Unlimited in Hockessin is holding a "Sunflower" photo contest of that very field. Submit photo's to their website, they post them on Face Book and the highest number votes wins. Birders are a competitive group just slightly less so than photo bugs and fisherpeople.
  5. Google Tussock Moth. They are toxic so exercise care when handling them.
  6. I'll pass on some advice that was given to me during a very rough period ... I didn't think it was possible to cry anymore but I did. Days turned into weeks and although there were days without grief and tears, I just couldn't pull myself out of the funk. I called a friend who knows about grief. His advice: "When you're sure you've reached the bottom, I'm telling you there is no bottom. You're done when you're done. When something is SO painful to think about it's easier to try thinking about anything else rather than face the pain. My advice: Go to the abyss and fully emerse yourself in your grief. Look at it, tear it apart, study it. Once you have done that you will at least understand it and it will not affect you the same way. Repeat as necessary." Best advice I ever got.
  7. Happy Birthday Steve! Yea, we made it through another one.
  8. Thanks Shaky and Tammy!
  9. "I'm your Huckleberry."
  10. Absolutely done. Keeping your Grandfather and your family in my thoughts.
  11. Spent a few hours hiking a friends land on the Chessy a couple of weeks ago. Captured a few images of the local residents. [img=http://www.stripersonline.com/image/id/3488463/width/600/height/310][img=http://www.stripersonline.com/image/id/3488466/width/600/height/379]
  12. My boy Zack was a Shorthaired Pointer. Great dog with a great nose - - - needed lots of exercise. I read and followed "Wing and Shot" while working with my dog. Good looking Dog BTW.
  13. Don't know if this has been said or not (haven't read the entire thread) ... There are many things I can live with in a relationship - eating the last piece of cake, throwing away one of my favorite tee shirts cause it was a thread bare and had holes and stupid stuff that really doesn't matter. The betrayal of trust when someone cheats is a deal breaker period. No excuse for it and no going back. Done with a capital D. I was in a loveless marriage for 14 years with two children and not once considered cheating.
  14. Pulled into the driveway this afternoon in a mix of snow, freezing rain and rain. Opened the car door and saw two larger birds in what can best be described as a dipsy doodle flight path land in a sweet gum. I hustled to grab my camera and snapped a few shots. Not the greatest images but this is the first Pileated Woodpecker I've seen on our property. [img= http://www.stripersonline.com/image/id/3090350/width/600/height/612]
