Kickin' back, musing, observing, and gathering inspiration from the hills of East Tennessee.

We found a dead deer on one of the back (gravel) roads here; it probably was hit out on the main road and made it a little ways before it died. We put it out back with our Wildview Camera on it and got some awesome pictures of a bobcat and two foxes eating on it! We got 179 pictures! (see photos; the date on the camera is incorrect) We thought we'd get coyote too but we didn't. We got coyote on the camera last year when we set it out, no bait. Really neat all of the wildlife we have around here.
Kathy & Mike, our new neighbors, were back over Thanksgiving and Mike looked out in the middle of the night and saw a coyote getting into a bag of garbage they had set out, meaning to take to the dump.
Rabbits cookin' coffee -- that's what the locals call it. But here in this little hollow in East Tennessee, when the hills surrender their misty hostage to reveal the stalwart cedars growing by the stream in our pasture, I know there is no place on earth I would rather be. The welcome mat is out! Come and sit on the porch and chat with me awhile!
