This was our second visit to a Ripley’s Aquarium, this one was in Gatlinburg and worth the $25 just to go through the glass tunnels.
Last weekend my wife and I headed out for a short weekend getaway to Rome, Georgia. As we left the house the thought that we would end up attending a Bull Riding event was not anywhere in our universe. Growing up in Texas I have been to many rodeos, however my wife had never seen anything like this….
This little fellow is lounging around by my deck…
Driving through middle Kentucky at 55 miles per hour, my wife pointed out deer just off the road. I quickly turned around and pulled into a gravel road leading up the mountain. I parked the car and this big guy was down a small hill and could only see his head and antlers. There were several other lurking about including a few calves.
When this guy came up to the road about 50 feet from me (I was leaning on the hood of the car) I thought he was awfully large for a deer and my wife thought they were elk. Being the city boy I am, I had no clue. I showed the photo to my uncle who said it in fact was an elk and we what we came across was a very rare find.
I have about five chipmunks running around my garden. I put out a pile of sunflower seeds and this little guy made about 7 trips, filling his fat cheeks and then running off to the side of the house.
