The last time we went on a trip out trusty Beagle stayed at Grandma's and when I came to pick her up this happened. Such a patient dog....#oldgreyhairedbeagle Setting some red ear slider turtles that have been in captivity free today. They had lived the last few years in an aquarium 12"x24". Freedom my friends good luck.... Driving home following a painted sky Learning to fly. From the sketches of Leonardo Da Vinci built by Onetreewoodwork. Built from pruning branches in the backyard,scrap of linen cloth,hemp rope, upholstery tacks and a love of foolish pursuits. A leather bound folder I keep sketches and ideas of stuff I want to build. On it is a sketch from one of Da Vinci's notebooks he was consumed with birds and flight and how man could fly like a bird. This sketch of a wing was always so beautiful to me.....rare I think to have someone devoted equally to science and art. Training my child labor and working on an experimental art/science instillation using some of the branches removed during pruning. Will post outcome of build hopefully tonight. Fans of Leonardo da Vinci and extreme foolishness stay tuned...... Fall colors in full effect here in Tx. The weather apparently has been just right for max color. Country roads:take me home
