8:30  got drenched at the fair last night. already on way to the car when the storm broke.  it was a lot. my clothes are almost dry now.
sounds like the drought is widespread up north. here too weather is extreme.  rain is intense, but widely scattered.  not normal.
 I think I may start going to fairs again.  I used to go every day, but quit when I could not walk.  I can walk now all day if I want.  It is good. Feet still get sore, but that is normal for fair goers.
Next is The Great Geauga County Fair on Senior free day 9/3.  Racing at 5pm.  I will go early, because they have horse shows all day long in the free grandstand.  They also have a large pond where they give lots of different outdoors sport activities.  Like retriever demonstrations and fishing derbies.
Very nice.  I have been here many times.  It is a long ride, but worth it.
Well that is it for now.  cul gb

hi ev1,
5;32 on the nice lighthouse.
No fairs today.  May go fishing later.  Day is bright and nice 77 degrees at 10;15. May try bike ride too.
That is about it.  Have not checked on cams yet.  Been reading the paper.

Hi ev1,
5:38 not too bad.  I am almost awake. Very sore.  Could not stay in bed.
  Fell off my bike last evening.  Drove off the walk avoiding a garter snake soaking up the sun on my concrete walk.  Then took a dive onto that concrete walk. The snake was fine.  Just stayed there watching and no doubt laughing in snake way.
 Skinned up both knees, and spent three hours in Lodi Cleveland Clinic ER. They cleaned and wrapped both knees a lot. LOL Took x-rays of right knee to check condition of artificial joint.  Was OK.
I am OK this morning, but will have to wear long pants for a few days. My legs look like the walking wounded.
This was my first real bike ride since I got my new knee, and it was good until the end.

Not Much to Report - UPDATE September 1, 2021
7 year old Lily on 8-6-14
7 year old Lily on 8-6-14

As hunting hours ended, we heard a shot in one direction and two quick shots in another. We are thankful it was not worse and also thankful for all of you who help divert the bears from trouble and worse. All indications are that 14-year-old Lily, shown in this 7-year-old picture, is okay.

Thank you for all you do.

Bears, Woodchuck, and Making Dens - UPDATE September 2, 2021
20210902 Woodchuck greeting mom
20210902 Woodchuck greeting mom
The only two bears we know of being taken in this vicinity were the two taken by the shots we heard last evening—a young bear, probably a yearling, and one that we have no information on maybe a mile away.

Most of the pregnant females have disappeared from the area and we suspect they are beginning to den. We still see Lily on a trail cam and are wondering when she will move to a den. She was at her den of 2013 by the end of August 2012 to begin the longest denning period we ever recorded. She didn’t leave it until April 23, 7.7 months (235 days) later. However, in another year when she was pregnant, she remained active until the end of September.

At the Bear Center, a woodchuck gave better views than I’ve ever seen of a woodchuck gathering bedding for its burrow. "Taught" caught it on this video (3 minutes and 39 seconds) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-NHo91XHn0 I hope baby woodchucks appear there by the rock den next summer so we can see them interact. The picture is from a rare opportunity to see that back in June 1981.

Thank you for your support at this time.

Thank you for all you do.

6:38 Nice cool day here. 55degrees at 8:30.  Been up since 6am, but trying to get computer back in shape.  Got it back from repairman yesterday afternoon.  Seems to be working better, but still bogged down with something in backround.  No real news.  Hard to walk, but I am still going to the Geauga cty fair this afternoon.  I will just take a few more tylanol, and sit a lot.. LOL
Well second coffee is probably cold by now.  So got to go and warm it and finish reading the paper.

Lily Caught on Camera - UPDATE September 3, 2021

With no hunters in the area and no shots heard, we believe the bears are safe for today. Also, 14-year-old Lily was caught on camera looking fine. All is well. Voices are relaxed and cheery here.

Thank you for all you do.

5:45.  Very good update. So sore this morning.  Went to fair to races.  Stayed late petting goats.  They have so much personality.  Burton has a lot of horses and goats.  Got home pretty late.  Don't feel like doing much this morning.  So I will go get my 2nd coffee while it is warm.  CUL  GB
