Day 23: Cars

As mentioned in the post I made yesterday, Nancy and I went to a BBQ festival this weekend. We were a bit disappointed as we were expecting to find amazing BBQ being smoked all over the venue. Maybe we got there to late/early but this was not the case. We still managed to get some traditional North Carolina pulled pork but it was from a catering company and not some amazing southern pit-master with crazy family secrets.

Despite the lack of BBQ we still had fun. We had never been to Kinston and the historic downtown section where the festival took place was interesting and I am glad we went. Personally my favorite part of the festival was the car show. We arrived as it was wrapping up but there were still plenty of cars to admire. I didn’t take many photos as it was mid afternoon and the lighting was harsh. The weather was perfect for walking around though so I can’t complain. These are the best of the shots I did take.

There were a few Rat Rod style trucks that were pretty cool.



This MG was perfectly restored.

Weekend Romp

It is safe to say that Oshie has really enjoyed having a live in playmate. He gets along so well with Lucy and he hasn’t even tried to hump her (at least that we know about ha-ha). They really enjoy being outside together where they have pee duels. They literally follow each other around and pee on each others pee.


On Saturday the weather was perfect which meant Oshie and Lucy were actually able to run around the yard without getting filthy. Unfortunately most of the day they were stuck inside because Nancy and I decided to go to a BBQ festival about an hour away. It was fun but a bit of a let down. There was a lack of BBQ for a festival that supposedly revolves around it.

Once we were home we let the pups out to play for a while. Lucy likes to instigate by making lunging movements at Oshie. This usually results in a chase around the yard. Oshie is a slow turner and Lucy changes direction fast so he has to use smart angles order to catch her.


When he does catch her they end up wrestling and we always know when Lucy has had enough because she will drop to the ground and roll over on her back and stop fighting. Oshie usually takes the hint and gives her a break. I am just glad that they get along so well.

The only issues we have run into is jealousy. They both hate it when the other is getting all the attention. Lucy will come over and push Oshie away if we are showing him some love and Oshie tries to wrestle with Lucy is she is hogging all of the attention. So no real issues, hell they even take turns chewing Oshie’s deer antler.  I will end this post with a few more images from the weekend romp.

A game of keep away.
Going in…
for the kill!
Best Friends!

Thanks for stopping by.

Day 22: The Bell Cobra

They were flying all over the place on Friday. I don’t see them as often as I do the other Helos so it was nice to get the chance to photograph them. The lighting wasn’t the best thanks to the cloud coverage but the pilots were flying nice and low which made up for the poor conditions.

I was able to get plenty of shots it I still need to cull them and process the keepers. Eventually I will post the keepers. Thanks for stopping by.

Day 21: Stormy Weather

“After a storm comes a calm”

Yesterday we had some pretty crazy weather and so did many other folks on the east coast. Some areas received snow while we endured some crazy thunderstorms. At one point in the afternoon Nancy informed me that she was seeing quarter sized hail where she works.

When I left my office for the day there were rivers all over the place that shouldn’t have been there. It was also unseasonably cool. Anyway I love crazy weather like that…except for the hail. Here is an image from yesterday afternoon when the weather began to clear up.



On different note, the neighborhood Hawk was back this morning. I still can’t get close enough to take a decent photo. He sees everything but here is my best attempt from this morning.



Today was the third and final day of the quote challenge. I appreciate Tippy Tales challenging me and I propose that SATechs and The Nighthawk Project complete the same challenge.

Have a great weekend!

Day 20: Lucy

And sure enough even waiting will end… if you can just wait long enough

-William Faulkner

We are watching Lucy for some friends while they are on vacation. She is great dog and she gets along great with Oshie. He is super happy to have a companion to hang out with all day while we are away at work. I do think she is missing her people a little bit though.

Watching and waiting.
