The case of the disappearing photos.
It used to happen from time to time - now it's happening a lot more often. After posting my photos in here which I have hosted for years on Fotki dot com, the urls change causing my blog to have many blank placeholders.
This is not meant to be a rant - just letting people know why there are so many missing photos.
Unfortunately, I can't take the time to keep fixing the links.
Enjoy what's left. Thank you.

Monkey Man Returns! March 26

Yup, the neighbors did the same thing as us, removed all their trees. Plus the other neighbor had them remove the ones he wanted gone. It's so bright out someone turned on all the lights. In some ways it's nice, or potentially so...but for the most part it just looks weird.

Trimming the branches...just pruning...right? 3/25

So this morning I was awakened by the sound of chainsaws - like a bad memory.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I looked out the back window but figured it was at the neighbor's house; the neighbor who was originally concerned about the broken tree ending up on his shed. He had said he was going to remove some of his trees.

Well, it wasn't there. It was the neighbor directly in of the original ("pre-project") neighbors.

They were trimming the branches and tops and grinding them in the chipper.

It was the same company that did our trees. I could only imagine what was going to come.
Sure enough, the next day....

Set of lights - 3/24

Just messing with the night mode while driving. What? You don't multitask?

Ding Ding Ding Ding etc. March 23, 2009

Sometimes, while driving home from work at 11PM or so, you've resigned to the fact that you didn't get a picture of the day (happens to me a lot).

Then suddenly lights start flashing and bells start ringing and in your face, if you have a camera handy (which I always do),

is a photo opportunity knocking...or uhh ...tooting.

Muskrat? Beaver? I dunno. March 22ish

Not sure what this critter is. Saw it swim by just in time to get this very hasty shot. This was at Jone's River in Kingston, MA.
