Antelope Island

Lisa Shafer and I headed out to Antelope Island today.  Neither of us remember ever being out there in the winter, so we decided to go see what we could see.  Not as much scenery as we’re used to, mainly because there’s a big inversion over the valley locking in the clouds and pollution.
Can you tell where the water ends and the cloud starts?

Bunny tracks…

And there’s the bunny.  It was so still that at first I thought it was a funny shaped rock.

Even when I got to within a three feet of it, it still sat there still, resting on the rock.

I got about two feet away and it ran right into the bush.  I went around to the other side and spotted it right back on it’s rock.  That rabbit really loved that rock.

Usually you can find the bison when you get about a mile in on the island, but today we had to get 5 or 6 miles in before we even found this small herd of them – about 1/10 of what you can see in the summer.  Wonder where all the rest went?

Seems there are also coyotes on the island.  I knew that, but had never seen them before.

And finally, a crosswalk out in the middle of nowhere.

Black Friday

Here’s the crowds that I braved on Black Friday.  I didn’t get any good deals on merchandise, but I did get relaxed.

And the cat had the right idea too…

Happy Thanksgiving & some funny stuff.

What am I thankful for?

  • I’ve got a wonderful family and great friends.
  • My job, which for the most part I still love.
  • I get to live in a house I really like.
  • My Jeep.

Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving, and a whole lot of stuff to be thankful for.

I’m thinking of painting my Jeep this color.  Yeah, just kidding.  Pepto Pink, in my opinion, is not a good color for any car.

One of the most ironic typographical errors.  Or was it intentional?

French Club meetings at my school are taking an odd turn. 

There’s an app for everything, and one of my students had fun with this one and a picture of me.

Miss Utah visited my school for a 7th grade assembly today.  The boys were, well, um, just a little bit happy.  She signed their arms and took selfies with them.  They, of course, had to show me at lunch.

Looking at one of the selfies:
Boy 1: “She’s hot.  I’m going to marry her.”
Boy 2: “She’s a lot older than you.”
Boy 3: “He’s movin’ to Cougarville!”
