Glowing Logs Cabin

Cathleen & Lamar Wadel`s rental cabin in the woods, I finally got to see it yesterday & I could see myself living there...3 rooms & bath , very quiet with lovely views...
the cabinets special made to conceal fridge & microwave
there was a second floor however it was small so they tore it out but left the window area

Sat.`s Critters/ The day Tom came a callin`

Linking up with Eileen herehttp://viewingnaturewitheileen.blogspot.com/ 
Two years ago my neighbors & I watched a turkey visit our neighborhood. He especially liked Donna`s house. He remained here for several days, then I guess he went on up into the mountain. It was funny as Donna is a widow & when she came outside to watch him, she said, Tom always said he`d come back, but I never thought as a turkey...

boy this driveway is long
 

I must clean myself a bit
 

anyone home?

The black Rat Snake

The black rat snake is back. This must be a baby, don`t get me wrong, it is long, but there is a mama somewhere bigger yet.
 I pulled in the drive coming home from church on Sun. & 2 catbirds were very cross at something in the tree. I go in & let the dogs out & get my camera to look up at the tree, sure enough , there he was. I didn`t have the hose ready to plow him with cold water, but I did get a stick & beat him a few times as far as I could reach. He was starting to come down then, but his belly looked full, perhaps their eggs? I couldn`t see a nest. I have owls & hawks which are their natural predators, however I just found a man & woman team who catches & releases them for a fee. I am about ready to pay to get them out of here. But will they get them all?  more will come back, don`t you think? Most of the snakes here are black rat snakes who stay in the trees.
