#joinindaily with +Johnny Wills theme Five

Five brand new Monarch butterflies that emerged together on a sunny morning of July 2017. It was a very good season that resulted in fifty-four releases. Note the condition of this potted Milkweed plant, munched down during the caterpillar stage to just a few remaining leaves and stubby stems. Overall we purchased a half-dozen plants that season.

#joinindaily with +Johnny Wills theme Communication Devices

Morse-code key and 6L6G vacuum tube that enabled me to experience the pleasures of worldwide communication as W6FTY on the forty-meter Ham Band at age twelve. The key was a gift to me from a seventh-grade shop teacher that coached me and sent Morse-code to me until I was able to pass the test for my Ham License.

#joinindaily with +Johnny Wills theme Feathers

Native American Hopi carved Longhair Redbeard (Hokyan Anga'china) Rain Dancer Katsina carved by Aaron Honyumptewa. Kachinas and Katsinas are carved from the root wood of Cottonwood Trees. I'm pleased to have this one amongst my native-art collection.

The dolls are used to teach tribal children how to worship the sun, sky, rain, mountains, streams, trees, animals, and more. The northeastern Arizona Hopi, Navajo, and Zuni Nations hold annual festivals where dancers in Kachina/Katsina costumes pay tribute to the worldly objects of their worship.

#joinindaily with +Johnny Wills theme It Looks Wet

A couple of Geocaching pals of mine wading a stream while searching for several Geocache containers that I placed along South Boundary Fire Road of Cuyamaca Ranch State Park within San Diego County, California. Of course they had to wade back cross the stream while returning to their starting point.

#joinindaily with +Johnny Wills theme Cases

Collapsible cup and case from the late 1800s carried by travelers that rode Penny Farthing bicycles along the stage roads of England. One of my treasured collectibles used during times past to toast the achievements of the worlds first touring bicyclists. Hip! Hip! Hoorah!

+Kathy D: The Monarchs keep buzzing our house homing in on our garden Milkweed. Here's a shot of the plump caterpillar that we moved onto this healthy potted Milkweed plant a couple of days ago. Didn't take long for the caterpillar to do its Hanging-J thing on the wooden trellis that's stuck into the potting soil. For three seasons that trellis has always been a favored place to hang out and become a Monarch butterfly. Perhaps the silk hanging-dots leave behind an odor that entices other caterpillars to choose the trellis when it's time to do their Hanging-J. I keep asking the caterpillars about this but; you know, my ears are too darned old to hear what they have to say. Must be why old guys keep telling their same old stories since they aren't able to hear any new stories t' tell. (Is that a paradox?)

Sandy said that I should stop trying to talk to the caterpillars so often. It seems that she's often asked about my behavior.
