I've been relishing my time off! Nothing beats retirement! Except looking forward to a wonderful part time job working with some exceptional kids (see previous blog post).
Anyway, this past week, I've done some serious walking, and have come across a few delightful friends from the animal kingdom.
property where James Taylor grew up. These guys were hanging out in the James Taylor front field when I strolled by. (That property has 20 acres, mine has about 1--in case you were wondering.)
North Carolina Botanical Gardens. This guy and I had a stare-down going.
park in Morganton, NC where we encountered a newborn fawn parked on a trail by her mama.
We left quickly. I'm sure mama and fawn were fine.
I have so enjoyed these moments, and look forward to many more.
