Labor Day Ventures

17 Oct


Labor Day Labors (of Fun) aka Adventure!

I long ago promised that I would relate my wonderful, awesome adventures cross-country this past labor day weekend.  Labor Day weekend, always one of the great highlights of any college student’s life, was particularly exciting to me this year since I also had Thursday and Friday off and I was off to visit family for a BBQ.  A five day weekend, BBQ Pork Steak, Baked Potato, Grilled Veggies, and Home-made Ice Cream and Fudge Sauce–the weekend was definitely offering great potential 🙂 My Aunt and her husband were hosting the BBQ at their cabin down in Illinois; having traveled the same road dozens of times in the past, the trip can get kind of boring at times.

Now you have to understand that I wasn’t going to be alone on this trip; my mom was also going to be riding down with me. My mom and I together are pretty awesome.  We love taking the roads less traveled and heading off Continue reading

Gorgeous Day!

Tomorrow I’ll post about my hilarious Labor Day adventures as I set off with Rambling Roberta the Garmin set to “shortest route” on my way home.  But for now, here are a couple pics of the glorious day that was today!ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage


Eagle Steals Baby!

19 Dec

Holy cow! I’ve heard of eagles taking puppies and small pets for food, but this bird tries to take a baby! It picks it up far enough to be above the mom’s head, and is flying off with the infant!! Wow! Talk about a story to tell your kids!

Addendum–>Haha!  They say now, it’s a joke, but still very funny and well done.  I actually have seen eagles pick up huge things before.  If you want to see them, visit Clarksville, MO on eagle days Jan. 26-27, 2013.  I once counted 47 eagles on a single day, and I was only there a couple hours.  They come  down looking for food as the Mississippi River ices over.   I’ll try to post pics this year.  You can find more information here.  The little town is cute too; it has some shopping and darling restaurants.  Great visit!!
