27 July 2021: High thin clouds this morning but no rain in sight. Looking at the 10 day forecast, all sunshine. I`m surprised there are no new gopher mounds after watering for two days. I`m trying to get my weeds to turn green. Two months to go before deer season. Last year at this time, we had several young bucks on the property. Their antlers were just beginning to sprout but this year there is no sign of the male species. Hopefully that isn`t a sign of a bad hunting season. This years fawns have now lost their spots. Spotted an eagle yesterday flying high overhead. Too far away to get a good photograph.

24 July 2021: Busy day today. Lots of yard work and keeping an eye on the new bee`s nest in the ground. Bumble Bees going in and out the small hole in the ground. I`m sure the fox or other wild animals will soon dig it up. They have dug up two others in the yard.

Last hunting season Linda shot a nice forked horn. She wanted a European Mount done on the head and antlers so 9 months ago, we buried the head and part of the neck with the hide and hair on it. I dug it up today and the bugs and other insects did their job. I have a clean skull, well after I washed all the mud off of it. Now I have to sun bleach the skull to make it look natural. After that I`ll make a plaque to mount it on. I set up the trail cam at the site where the deer head was to see if anything is attracted to what is left of the skin and neck bones still in the ground.

18 July 2021: This month we`ve made two trips to Eureka, Ca and both times we got stuck in long lines of traffic that was stopped at the Last Chance Slide area. The first time the line of cars were a good 9 miles long and the wait was 1 1/2 hours before we got to move. The second time the line was only about 3 miles long and the wait was only 45 minutes. This part of hwy 101 has been sliding out since the late 1960`s. Caltrans has spent millions of dollars in repair work over the years and the money spent could have been used to build a bypass over the mountain instead of along the ocean. The weather here has been nice with no rain for some time and no rain predicted for the next 10 days or longer.

I have the perfect solution on getting bumbling Biden`s attemtion on his border crisis. Have the border states lease a bunch of buses and load all these illegal into them and drive them to Washington D.C. and drop them off in front of the Whitehouse. Instead of putting them all in hotel and motel rooms., purchase small dome tents for each family and let them camp out in Lafayette Park across from Biden`s home. What doesn`t fit in D.C., send the overflow to Biden`s home state of Delaware.
