Today

Sunset 4:37 PM here today. Old sol is about as far south as he goes, not quite but close. 23F with 19 mph wind out of the dead west. Feels like 8F. Gotta behave I only have one dog and it would be a three dog night in the tent if she throws me out.

Well, we had a red sunset tonight, but with 50 MPH winds and 18' waves on Lake Ontario, it is anything but a sailor's delight!

As you know Alf, we’re not that far north of the Interstate 80 corridor. The planes from Offutt AFB near Omaha fly that route too. And with the way the wind was today an eastbound goose could have left a contrail too.
I was feeling lucky today so I went to the county seat to renew my drivers license. The nice examiner lady got out a sanitizing pad and wiped down the “ viewing machine” before I read the numbers. Said she wouldn’t want me to go back home with rouge or lipstick on my face.
Got a pretty good laugh when I told her it wouldn’t be the first time. Then I read all the numbers straight through, identified the source of the lights and gave her $30. Now I’m good to drive Miss Daisy for anther 5 years.

Paid the extra dollar a year for my motorcycle permit although I haven’t driven one for 38 years. Last one was a Norton Commando. Had some snort it did.

Have a good time shopping for my Christmas present. All you have to remember are a few numbers: 3X, 100 proof and 11 1/2 6E. Stay warm.

No misprint. The lake can get rough. A 47' Coast Guard MLB during a storm:

Hi: Iowa Dave... We're on the flight path to Canada's busiest airport. Not unnormal to see 8 contrails over head. I don't stand outside looking up, due to the "Goose grease"!!! Alf

Hey Alf
I’m an experienced goose wrangler from my park days when we used round them up when they were molting and the young ones couldn’t fly yet. I have a few stories from those days too. They can be pretty feisty.

I once got an order from the parks commissioner to design and build plywood coyotes to keep geese off one of our golf courses. I told him I doubted it would work. He told me to humor him. So I made them and named my project Plyoteees . They did not scare the geese and stray dogs peed on my project at night.

There's a small farm down the road from me and I see some plywood coyotes every year in the fields. I notice they're not anchored but turn in the breeze and laudy it's breezy out here at times! I guess they work or they wouldn't bother... wonder if the fact they twist in the wind makes the difference?

Maybe there’s something to the motion, I don’t know. I know they are sold commercially because that’s where the commissioners got the idea. I’ve found most wild animals get used to stationary objects pretty quickly and movement is detected too. Geese get pretty used to people as you know. We used to round up about 500 young birds a year and move them about 40 miles to a big marsh. Only about 10 Percent returned to the city. The thought is that they home back to where they learn to fly, Generally. Coyotes can be pretty mobile too. They will move many miles in the early fall as the young males are “kicked out”. It assures genetic diversity.

The birds should be afraid of them, or whatever it was that killed a deer in my backwoods last night. My ring picked up the sounds of a small deer meeting its end, It really grabs certain sounds from a bit of a distance.

That was the end of the Anthony Hopkins movie I was watching.
