This is my banter for Thursday September 19th…

Hello everyone:: I imagine your day was pretty darn good, and as I say ‘lovely’.. I hope your families are safe, happy and in good health.. My family is great and seem to be in good spirits.. You know.. I like days, like today.. The breeze was cool and moderate.. I got to get out and harvest some more seeds from the gardens.. I do this every year and use them to bring bright colors around the back yard… I also had to un-pot a few plants that had withered away and died.. They had a good run during the spring and summer.. I have several potted plants that are still blooming, and have right from the start.. I have been keeping a close eye on the peppers I planted from seeds.. They have flowered and are growing larger each day.. Soon it will be time to prune back all the taller plants in preparation of the winter.. Some of the plants in the gardens are still blooming and suppling food for the bees.. We can’t clip those yet.. Maybe with some sweet talking I can get Douglas to wait for a couple weeks before pruning.. I like the bright colors and want to enjoy them till the end..

It was funny to look out the window and see pair of eyes on the tree trunk.. To tell you the truth, it took me awhile to realize the eyes were there… Douglas never even seen them, until I pointed them out.. It was cool to see them keeping an eye on the campground… The silence in the park was a wonderful treat.. It sure was a change for cars revving their engines, and speeding away to something important.. There was no loud music to hear when you were trying to sleep.. All the sounds of a busy city.. I loved the change… I found it lovely.. There are many surprises out there in the world you just have to look out for them.. They’ll surprise you for sure.. Since returning from camping I have felt a calm that I find wonderful.. I know one thing the dogs were glad to be home and around familiar places.. They bark at the squirrels and the little chipmunks.. I encourage the dogs to use their inside voices.. They know what I mean as they lower their voices to a quiet woof.. But, that doesn’t last too long… And the barking starts all over again.. That’s puppy dogs for ya.. 🙂

DSCN2032.JPG        The fog covers the murky waters with a spooky mist..

This is an interesting photograph.. One that can make a person wonder what is out there in the water.. That’s what I had in mind as I watch the water creep closer to where I was standing.. Was there a creature of unthinkable size lurking in the waters.. Could it be an Anaconda slithering it’s way towards a snack that was going to be me.. I stood there watching as the fog drew closer and closer.. My heart was racing as my mind filled with despair and agony.. A frog jumped into the water behind me… I jumped and turned to see what it was.. I seen nothing.. Was my mind playing tricks on me.. There could not be something that large in this shallow water.. But, I was not taking any chances as I backed up the bank of brush and slippery mud.. I kept a close eye on the fog till I was safely inside the trailer.. I should know better than to let my mind wonder into darker places.. :0

DSCN2110.JPG          Another set of eyes making like they are not watching…

As you can see those eyes on the trees keep a look out for the campers that stay there.. The only thing that bothered me was every time I looked out to the front window of the trailer… There were those eyes.. It was as if  the eyes changed their direction each time I looked at them.. And this set of eyes is sporting a long beard.. Really.. That is actually funny.. I wonder if he gets wood chips in his beard??  Well everyone, I’m on the run… Gotta go.. Till later.. Have a great day..  🙂 🙂

I would like to thank all you wonderful people for stopping by to read my banter.. Thanks…:) 🙂  I’m going to take credit for the photographs in this banter.. As I took all of them.. Hope you enjoy.. 🙂 🙂
