The ‘Macro’ World, Nature Part 2

This morning while getting ready to take off, I saw this little critter sitting on the picnic bench at the shop.
I may add, that I’m sure many of our viewers and other bureaus around the country saw our Bosses, Editor, CEO and his funny comment on my other “macro” posting yesterday. So I dedicate this to him. LOL

The ‘Macro’ World, Nature

Today I had to transport a dumpster we’ve had sitting at the yard for a couple of years. As I unloaded the box I walked around to check things out. And, I spotted this little fellow emerging to catch some sunlight. Really interesting. I’m sure he enjoyed the ride also.

Morning Tests for C_J_L Outdoor, Wildlife Site

Good morning everyone. After getting everything all set up with equipment for the new CJL outdoor photo/video division with our new equipment, the next chore was finding a good place for the camera, and safe from thieves.
This is the area chosen facing west on the Genesee River gorge on the east side of the river.
After running these tests this morning, I chose to hold off on setting the equipment up and possibly doing it tonight.
Stay tuned!

Eclipsing America

The last time a total eclipse was seen in the US of A was during Woodrow Wilson’s time in the Oval Office back in 1918.
It was the late 1280s when a total eclipse of the sun traversed the Americas the way today’s eclipse traveled.
Next time will be April of 2024, a scant seven years from now.
Question is:
Will President Donald Trump eclipse the headlines about the sun and the moon when he addresses the nation tonight at 9 o’clock with his Southern Asian Plan and what to do about Afghanistan?
The US continues to be bogged down in its longest war in the Graveyard of Empires.


This morning I visited one of my best friends homes. Had coffee with him, his wife and daughter. A beautiful family.
At the entrance to his home is this bench at the beginning of the private drive. I’ve always liked it because it is shaded. I’m not a great fan of a lot of sun. To me this is a perfect, peaceful setting.

The Joy of Flowers

Flowers to me always add a beauty and joy where ever they are seen. I may add, this flower is at our entrance here at the Rochester C_J_L bureau. Have a great day!

Hitching a Ride

A little earlier this morning, I scooted to the store for some breakfast preparations. This guy decided to ride along. I invited him to stay, but he declined.

Life After Death!

Yes folks, it is true, when 1 thing dies off, sometimes another is born. The other day at work I was moving some equipment around and came across this. It seems that Mr. and Mrs. Bird thought the radiator of this old truck RIP was an ideal home to start their new family.

A Special Guest at Work

Yes folks, this turkey buzzard decided to stop by the transfer station and look for some lunch.
