“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

~ A sign on the lawn at a drug rehab center said: 'Keep off the Grass.'

~ There was the person who sent ten puns to friends, with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh. No pun in ten did.

...okay, movin' on...

While driving down Interstate 69E at mid-morning one day recently, I saw several semi-trailer flatbed trucks transporting the large round 'modules' of cotton [think cotton bales only much larger and round instead of square] to the nearby gin. I realized that the 2nd harvest of cotton was taking place. I veered off the highway onto a county road that was like a picture of snow covered fields in winter! Yep, cotton fields!

You may notice the numbers stamped on the modules? I  believe [not sure] those are specific numbers that show [in short without going into detail here] the gin number...where to haul it, etc. It's a long story, but if you're interested, I'm sure there is a website that explains the 'bale' numbering codes in your own area. Around this area, there are two colors I've noticed, yellow and pink...maybe that has something to do with gins also.  Maybe it means nothing; I am definitely playing a guessing game here.

Several times throughout my blogging years, I've shared a favorite wildlife refuge in town that has a trail going through the heavily wooded area. There are some photos of the beauty seen along the trail in the link I just added. Well, sadly, this past week, a section of this park [some of the dense wooded trail-way] caught fire and burned. Now it's nothing but scorched tree carcasses and ash...

...on the 'bright' side, I saw a papa bird and his offspring in the charred area!  The little one was singing it's heart out....."Love me tinder, love me true...."

~ After returning home from my walk around the park, Bud and I had a heated discussion about brush fires!!

~ I mentioned that starting fires is one thing arson never did!!

By the way, if you don't know Spanish, my title "Fuego" means Fire!
