No this is a 27 acre lake I live on. It was built as a depression project during the thirties. Then sold off to a small group. I grew up fishing here and became a member about six years ago. Good population of bass and crappie.
View from my school bus window. I’m forever dodging these Roos. They really are dopey!
All round town here too. Bit bigger than those ones mostly. Kids have to chase em off the footy oval this time of year before they can play.
My decorative pond is completely overflowing due to the massive amounts of rain here.
These friggin ugly palms sucked. Until the owner of the property cut them all out. So much nicer. Enjoying the view today.
Quoted from MSLONEKER:
oh my gosh. i had one down the street from me in Hamilton Ohio. The reason i had so many cavities as a kid. i use to play defender there and eat candy all day long.
I put most of my quarters in the asteroids and missile command.
Quoted from yzfguy:
Are there fish in there??
I used to have fish in it but the neighborhood kids fed them to much and would screw my filtration up so I gave them to my brother who has a real pond at his home. Later I put bluegills in it to use for bait and would let my 2yr old grandson at that time fish for them. He loved catching them and now at 16 he's my steady fishing partner.
Across the driveway from my shed door, less than 20', the local Carpet Pythons grow well round here. This shed i noticed when underlopping the olive trees, probably an 8-10'er. Find them round here a fair bit, there's a creek down the back.
If you are hungry, don't wait til night-time to find something to eat. Raccoon along the edge of Lake Chicot mid-day. Central Louisiana.
My bass fishing skateboard. 24 volt trolling motor. With on board battery charger. Definitely have to be balanced to fish off this thing. Especially if you put it on the highest speed.
I was headed off to work and noticed something looked different in the boxwood shrub. Can you see it? (Hint: Its brown).
A closer look found a garter snake taking a nap.
When I returned home several hours later it had emerged to warm itself in the sun.
"Tasting" the air with its tongue!
Played some golf today, had to put my beer down for a moment to enjoy the view (and tee off)
This was the view from my roof yesterday.
This one got a little too close for comfort.
Not out the window, this was my front lawn as the protesters came down my street about 11:30 last night. Interesting times. Feels a lot like 1968, when I was starting high school. To fix our problems, we need to face our problems.
I'm not a big fan of spiders.
This one was about 4" diameter size out to the tips of the legs.
Fishing Spider, South Louisiana
Glad it didn't jump on anyone.
Storm rolled thru yesterday.
There was some lightning.
Then some sun rays broke thru.
Then a bit of a rainbow.
Finally a bit of lightning and bit of rainbow together!
Here's a video that shows the view from where I'm usually sitting at the computer when I'm on Pinside, my "music room" on the 3rd floor of our old Bank building. There is a triple-track CSX railroad line that provides lots of entertainment. This line has been running through Piedmont, WV since 1851 (when it was the B&O). We're at the bottom of a famous section of railroad called the "17-Mile Grade" between Altamont, Maryland and Piedmont, West Virginia. We see every kind of Maintenance-of-Way equipment, strings of 10-15 locomotives being moved back and forth, and lots of hi-rail vehicles (pickup trucks with retractable rail wheels). This video is from about 3 years ago when they were doing major track work in both directions from here. All the equpment has been loaded up on railcars and is being moved to another site:
