Tropical Storm Fay

For those of you who missed it, Tropical Storm Fay just would not leave. It passed over our house twice (once going West, then going East) and dumped tons of rain. Next door to our house is a cow pasture. These cows were apparently killed sometime during the rain, but I don't know what killed them. The rainwaters were not so high they would have drowned. I guess maybe lightning struck a pool of water they were standing in. That is all I can think of.
This carp may not look like much, but it is one of 3 carp that have been living in our pond for the last 15 years or so. Tropical Storm Fay ended this carp's tenure in the pond. We don't know if the other two survived or if they were washed over the dam and down stream.

A Trip South to St. Augustine

My oldest son's class took a trip to St. Augustine last week and I went along as a chaperone. They had a blast. This picture was taken on St. George Street (a popular retail shopping venue downtown).

Jacob joined the Cub Scout Troop in Whigham, Georgia this year. This is a picture of his first Pinewheel Derby. His car was one of the slower ones, but he did win an award for most unique design.
