.53 inches

That’s the precipitation for the past 24 hours as of 7 am this morning.  It doesn’t sound like *anything*, I know, but in Wyoming it is.  It has continued to rain all day, so by morning again… perhaps another .5 is possible.  That’s 1/12 of our entire precip for the year.  Duck jokes, ark jokes, “what’s a cubit? jokes abound…

Enjoy some messed up creations of mine. I’ve been trying to use clipping masks and

imaginative borders in Photoshop… but somewhere in the instructions, details are left

out and I putter around and putter around… someday… I’ll have borders and a

watermark in one action and I’ll be satisfied.

For a while.

Then I can figure out why GoDaddy freaks out with my print spacing and type for the

most random of reasons. Ugh.

These fox kits (there are three) reside close to our road, and one isn’t shy in the least.

She sits there and scratches fleas and poses for me.

On occasion the other two make a quick appearance… look closely and you’ll see #3 on the backside of the sagebrush.
