Grey Squirrel on the Window Sill

This little rascal begs for peanuts every day by either jumping up onto our front window sill or going to our back sliding  glass door.  He never seems to get filled up.  Looks like he’s playing peekaboo but he’s begging for some grub.

Ming and Sheba resting on the Bed

This is one of the last pictures we got of the two of them together before Sheba, on the right, passed away at age 20…Ming will be 7 years old in January.

The Last Diesel Through Peoria Heights, Illinois

I have the Last Train Through Peoria Heights on Flickr but thought you might be interested.  The Bicycle and Walking Trail have replaced the Train Tracks.  My wife and I can walk right off the back of our property directly onto the track.  Many folks are taking advantage of the track daily, summer and winter, and someone is always walking by or zooming by on their bicycle.  When I was a boy some of us would hop the train and go to school as the tracks ran right below the school in the center of Peoria Heights.  We weren’t terribly bright at the time in our lives.

What’s planted here?

I took this image on 11/10/2012.  Whatever is planted here certainly cheers up an otherwise dreary, early winter day.
