I was watching the episodes of Snow Leopards of Leafy London, about the National Cat Trust, with Dr. Terry Moore in the UK. Although its great to see someone taking in cats who have no where else to go. In the end, they are living in captivity for however long they live. Not able to have space, hunt, and live a feral life.… Read the rest
This is the post I wrote about old cars being found in even older barns, for the Ontario Barn Preservation newsletter, January 2023.
Cars in Barns Are “Barn Finds”
I like to photograph old buildings, farm houses and barns included. I’ve met a lot of people who also have an interest in old places. Not everyone is about photographing them.… Read the rest
Attack kittens. I gave my nephew a shirt with a kitten like a fire breathing dragon attacking a city.
I found these as shirts at Amazon. Little monster kittens like King Kong and the Kracken.

Get plant friendly.
Plants don’t destroy clothing or furniture, they don’t bite, drool or bark. You don’t need a bag to pick up their poop if you take them on a walk. You don’t need to take plants to the vet.
Plants can smell wonderful. You can eat some of them, if you choose. Plants are green, real living things, and stay right where you put them.… Read the rest
Pat doesn’t live here but his animals do. He was working at the back when I found the old house. He invited me to take all the photos I liked, but he doesn’t want people bothering the animals when he isn’t there. The old house is home to goats, turkeys, chickens and ducks.
I found this on a site about bats. I think this applies to all animals and plants too, people should be giving animals, plants and nature in general space. Why do people want to control everything?
Text version of the image:
BatsRule – just because you can’t touch it, cuddle it, control it, profit from it, doesn’t mean its useless, ugly or a pest.
I buy at least one poppy pin from the Canadian Legion boxes or the people standing at the door of the grocery store, every year. I like the pin itself and I like supporting the Legion. The real problem is keeping the pins on. Also, not getting stuck by that long pin several times a day.… Read the rest
People may feel sorry for farm animals contained in a small space without any natural environment but they seldom consider the life of the animals kept as pets. Pets, people want to believe, like the life with their owners. I don’t think they really do.
Not matter how many indoor conveniences made for a cat, they don’t get to hunt, wander over a large territory (especially at night) and choose when they want to give or receive affection.… Read the rest
Today I noticed this artwork of North American birds, by Michelle Scribbles.
I see birds when I explore old places. Most birds avoid people but some will follow you, and attack you too. I prefer the birds that keep their distance, of course. Well, sort of. I do especially like blue jays, crows and some of the other predatory birds.… Read the rest
