Christmas Tree


Yes this is a FAKE tree... I would never have a Christmas tree if I had to kill one just to put in my house for a month, As you can see in the view out my window, I have plenty of pine trees in my yard, They are beautiful out there... I hope they are ALL still there a hundred years from now.

Besides that, this fake tree is a lot less messy and it looks real , even up close.

This is my favorite room ... it's warm and cozy most of the time , when the fireplace is crackling and the wind isn't blowing ... it's a bit cluttered , but most of the clutter is interesting to look at.

I started editing pictures with Photoshop last week , In the past I used Picasa because photoshop was intimidating and confusing , But my brother gave me a few lessons to help me get started (using textures and layers) ... so now I'm addicted , it's a lot of fun manipulating my pictures.
You can see more of my manipulated pictures on my Flickr blog thing.


I started posting my photos on Flickr ... check it out !!!

Well ... it's been a long time, I guess it's time I finish this chapter and start a new one.
My friend Scott came up to help look for C'Mere when he heard that she had gone missing , I was in Missoula that day, when I got home Scott was crying and gave me the horrible news, that he had found her (what was left of her) while he was hiking down the hill below the house. We are fairly certain that she was attacked and eaten by a mountain lion that had been in the area this summer , one of my neighbors said he saw a mountain lion behind my house the evening C'Mere disappeared...
To add more sadness to the story, along with her remains, we also found the remains of her boyfriend, Dewey, He was as sweet as she was, He tryed to come inside twice that night and I shewed him away both times (damnit) I should have listened to him.
Also , we found remains of "Runt" my funny-face baby deer.
I guess it's true ... Death comes in threes... something like that.

I might blog more about C'Mere from time to time , when I need to share memories and feelings ... but for now, I need to start the new year in a happier direction.

a Bear Butt


This bear has been a pest , Friday evening it poked its head in through the front window and scared the begeezes out of me ... Saturday it was trying to get in through the back (screen) door ... Sunday it was just hanging around making me nervous ... I tapped on the window to get it to look at me (for the picture) but it turned and ran instead, So I only got it's back end
I'm still missing a window in back (the ice knocked it out earlier this spring) So all night I listen, expecting it to climb in sooner or later ... I haven't seen it for two days .. so maybe it's moved to another neighborhood

Doe and Fawns


she spotted me shooting pictures of the babies and raced to get them into the thick forested area

The Fawns


I just took this picture a few minutes ago , it isn't the best picture because I wasn't really ready ... they move fast and Mom keeps them hidden most of the time.
This is one of the few times I've seen them out in the open

Edge of the World


...in her head , I'm sure it must seem like the forest goes on forever and ever

You can't really see it in this picture , But she is sitting on the edge of a drop-off that drops down about 200 ft.

The first day of Spring ... C'Mere returns from exploring the thawed areas, it was too cold on her paws so it was a short-lived adventure
Posted by Picasa



We had a little bit of snow this winter

The Mom already had a fawn, but she adopted the runt anyway and she took very good care of it through the hard winter months ... They're all fat n sassy now

Placid Lake


Our family had a cabin here , We spent our Summers and Weekends (growing up)here until about 5 years ago, Mom sold it and bought the house in Seeley ... where I live now.

I took a drive to Placid Lake today and took a few pictures ... the ice is still there , mostly.

Full Moon

This is the view out my window ... or off the back deck ... it's hard to get any work done around here ... I spend hours and hours just sitting and staring out the window ...
