The Northern Lights in Southern Georgia! (We're just a stone's throw from the Florida border.)

Ladymarcovan was excited. She’d never seen them before. (I saw them once in Maine.) She said that checks one off her bucket list without even leaving home.

This is her pic, from our front yard. She has a newer iPhone. (Mine would’ve just shot a black rectangle.)

My friends in Western North Carolina captured some even more dramatic shots:

I like that BMW in the corner, very neat! 😊

Was visiting in my Dad’s living room.  Everyone was suddenly looking at me and laughing, for some reason.

No, I’m not going to be marching in the Pride parade.  The sun was shining through a glass prism on the window sash.

I caught a peacock showing off at a farm in Kentucky recently. I had to snap the picture quickly and at a distance.

An attempt to zoom in on the show...

The root cause of the festivities was soon discovered: a competing male nearby (visible at top picture left) and a female hiding out in the barn.

My wife and I used to hunt waterfalls, photographing 300 of them on the West Coast. But yesterday while hiking with Repo (tough hike!) we came across the weirdest one I have ever seen...

Obviously a man-made water control, but still an interesting sight.

Another lazy Thursday afternoon. (Bean, Elvis & Lily).

Don, my 86-year-old father-in-law (who’s been living with us since his house burned down on Thanksgiving) is outside, grubbing in the dirt around the old tree stump in the front yard, to prepare the spot for his tomato plants. It’s good to see him up and gardening again. That’s his thing. It’s a nice breezy day- warm, but not quite so hot as it’s been lately.

Looks like Repo had no objections!  :<} 

...Sorry, but please remind me, was he named after the movie (as in, maybe, Repo Dog)?  ...I'm seriously contemplating finding it on YouTube.  (...Right, boxes of CDs and DVDs, but, Oops, no drive that still works.)

Repo Man is a favorite movie of mine, but no. He adopted me when he was 10 months old, and he had already been adopted and returned twice before, hence Repo.  🥰

Nice one.

Reminds me of a pic I made of another one at Leeds castle, Kent (UK) back in 2008

I’ll spare you the actual action and aftermath photos, but here… let me set the scene for you…

It’s 5:00 AM, we’re in bed, and my wife suddenly screams.

You see, there is this shelf above the headboard of our bed. Huckleberry the Cat (seen below) likes to hang out up there. It’s his spot.

This morning Huck hung over the edge like some medieval gargoyle on a Gothic cathedral, and… puked.

Directly into the face of my sleeping wife below.

Ahh, the things we put up with, as “cat people”.

*sigh*

Just had the annual overnight employees’ appreciation party for Sea Island Company.  I work as a night auditor for one of their three local hotels, and I refer to the yearly event as “The Vampires’ Ball”, since it’s given for all us graveyard shift folks.

This year we had it at The Cloister’s resort bowling alley. I won an espresso machine in one of the door prize drawings. (Will give it to my daughter.)

The employee appreciation party at a five-star resort is, of course, impeccably catered.  Those Philly cheesesteak sliders were awesome, as were the little chocolate mousse s’mores thingies.

Right, that's something cats do; another reason for some of us to get along better with dogs.

But, 

Glad all four of you could eventually pick up and keep walking!
