Love where you Live.

Last Update: August 21, 2015

You gotta love where you live.

We don't live in a rural area, nor is it a heavily dense suburban area, it is a great area we love.

Yesterday afternoon I was picking my youngest up from my in-laws house and as I got to their driveway I spotted 2 wallabies, I was just hoping that they would hang around just for a little so I can get my youngest daughter to show her.

Lucky for us they did :-)


Sorry the pic isn't that clear, it was around 5:30pm and I grabbed it on the iPhone.

My daughter was so excited to see them, we get the odd one roaming around alone through the back yard quite often, but it has been awhile since we have seen two together.


Close by we actually come across a young joey too, seems like the whole family was out together for a meal. My daughter was so excited to see so many. I love have nature so close.

So what exciting nature do you have around where you live?

Few years back when I had a sail boat back in the eastern Canadian maritimes we use to see porpoises swim by our boat ... it was always great to sail along with them .... they are more a home in there then we are ... after all we are in their territory ... it was wonderful ... but for now we live a rural area ... not much around here but skunks, cows, and pigs ... we even get to enjoy the stink ... we do have squirrels in our backyard ... :0) ... we are planning to move back to the maritime's some day by the water and get another boat .... much cleaner air out there .... cheers ...

Thanks Larry, I remember seeing chipmunks up in Canada, but my daughters were too young to even remember them. I can imagine the squirrels & raccoons being cheeky.

Thanks for sharing your pics Paul. It's really cool that your kids can see that. We have mostly squirrels, birds, and bunnies with the occasional deer.

We have white tail dear all through our subdivision.There are usually 5 0r 6 does.In the spring there are usually 2 or 3 fauns.Once in a while there is a young buck. A lady 2 houses down and across the street feeds her cat on the porch,as many as 5 coons have paraded up to partake.
We have a small lake about 200 yards behind some houses with mallards and plenty of honking geese.

Last summer as I took my 2 dogs for our usual trek around the block
I saw a bobcat just standing in a neighbors yard.I was surprised and didn't want to rattle it.I thought,when he saw us he would take off.
He just stood there and looked.One of my dogs is a Shitzu and barks at everything and sometimes nothing.Amazingly She was quite and we just eased on down the hill.I really need to start taking pictures.

Enjoyed the topic Paul Marty:)

Back in the mid 80's a toyota plant was built here.As a carhauler,the reason we moved here 15 years ago.The town Tripled in size in a short period of time and they had a housing frenzy. Our subdivision is 5 mi.north of town built in a forested area,the wild life's habitat. I saw the bobcat where the houses are on the edge of the woods.

Kentucky has milder winters than Michigan where We.re originaly from. The dear get big here. Cheers to you paul,a nice way to spend a Friday evening...............Marty
