329/365 Ant And Fence

Spent the day getting the yard winterized, mulched the leaves and cut the grass.  Wish I could have gotten this ant more in focus.  Happy Fence Friday!

327/365 Brandi Isn't Feeling Well

She has an upset stomach.  Happens every once in a while.  I'm sure she will be better soon.

326/365 You'll Shoot Your Eye Out Kid

My Brother and I love the movie "A Christmas Story".  He gave me the DVD a couple of years ago so I thought I would get him "An Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle!" for Christmas.  Picked this up at Walmart for about $25.  I picked out the best one I could find overall, package and all.  He may not open it and want to keep it for his collection.

324/365 Night Vision

This slid shot reminds me of the view through night vision goggles.  I simply chose another color for white balance and this is what I got.  Happy Slider Sunday everyone.  Hope your weekend was drier than ours.

Was attempting to capture the unusual cloud formation but I really like the silhouette.

319/365 25th Anniversary Silver Eagle Set

This offering by the U.S. Mint was a real fiasco.  Took me over an hour and 15 minutes to get 2 sets ordered online (1 for myself and the other as a gift to my Brother).  Just do a quick search and you should find some great stories.  These sets are now selling on eBay for 2 and a half to 3 times original cost ($299.95 ea).  Unbelievable.

The 25th Anniversary Silver Eagle Set will contain the following coins:

    2011 Proof Silver Eagle (W mint mark)
    2011 Uncirculated Silver Eagle (W mint mark)
    2011 Uncirculated Silver Eagle (S mint mark)
    2011 Reverse Proof Silver Eagle (P mint mark)
    2011 Silver Eagle bullion coin (no mint mark, but struck at the San Francisco Mint)

The five coins are packaged in a “custom-design, highly polished, lacquered hardwood presentation case.” Each set is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.

The 25th Anniversary Set will include two very significant coins in the American Silver Eagle series. These are the 2011-P Reverse Proof Silver Eagle and the 2011-S Uncirculated Silver Eagle. Provided these coins are not offered in any other format, they would have a maximum mintage of 100,000 pieces. These two coins would become the second lowest mintage Silver Eagles across all years and formats, after the rare 1995-W Proof Silver Eagle, which has a mintage of 30,125.

318/365 Happy Birthday Brandi!

Today is Brandi's 12th Birthday.  She is old for a Boxer.  We got her Christmas Day the same year, 1999.

312/365 Eleven Months

My Father died eleven months ago today.  This is his bedroom, pretty much the way it has always looked.  I miss you Dad.

311/365 Missy

That's the name my Wife gave this American Staffordshire Terrier that ended up in the neighborhood.  I had the shelter come pick her up because someone may be looking for her.  She was very friendly and obedient, except when she first showed up.  Seems she frightened some people.  I have the option to adopt and although it was love at first sight for the both of us, I'm not sure if it can happen.  I am going to ensure that she gets a home somewhere.  And I did give the officer a check to help care for her during her stay.  *UPDATE*  She had a chip so hopefully her owner will be able to get her back.  If not I'm to be notified by MAS.

Stopped by the community garden today.  Things are winding down and being prepared for next season.  Probably my last shot here until spring.

305/365 Frosty November

1st frost I've seen this season.  More to come I'm sure.
