New Drone

I finally did it, I bought a new drone, a proper drone. I picked up a good deal on a DJI Mavic Air 2 from Amazon. It’s also on a payment plan, which is the only way I would have been able to afford it. Along with the drone I got the “Fly more” kit which has extra propellers, extra batteries, a bag and a couple other things.
I’ve had two previous drones, one quite a few years ago and was all manual and I called it Bruiser because I crashed it so much. The next drone I’ve had was a low end drone and did have a good camera and a number of other thing. This second drone did so me what I could do with a current drone though, so that’s what got me to buy this newest one. It’s not coming until next week, but I’m pretty excited about it.

Random Photos

Because I haven’t posted lately, here are some random photos I’ve taken over the past few weeks.

Work has kept me very busy ever since COVID-19 came around. I think that’s the main reason I haven’t posted as much as I’d like to.
Speaking of COVID, what a fucking disgrace the US has be come. We have a president that doesn’t give a shit about how many people are getting sick and dying.

Remembering Grizwald

It’s been one year since Grizwald passed over the rainbow bridge. I miss him every day.
Every night as I go to bed, I look out my bedroom window to see the little light I placed by Giz’s grave and say “Good night Grizwaldie”.
He always had this attentive and knowing look when I was talking to him.

Cecropia Moth

Found this moth on my screen door this morning. It’s huge! The wing span is about 6 inches.
The cecropia moth is North America’s largest native moth. It is a member of the family Saturniidae, or giant silk moths. Females have been documented with a wingspan of five to seven inches or more.


I’m alive and not sick, though I’m leaving the house much at all. Also, I’m still working, so that’s a good thing. Fear, yes I have quite a large fear of going to the grocery store, it scares the shit out of me, but it’s something that must be done. I really wish I had someone to talk to about what’s in my head with the fear and all the other crap that’s been going on. My anxiety level is really high.
The weather here has been really up and down lately, one day it sunny and in the 50s, and the next it’s snowing again. That’s April weather in northern Michigan.
The other day I had a visitor stop by, a Sharp-shinned Hawk. I was watching TV and noticed all the birds flying off in a hurry, then swoosh, in came the hawk.
Eli and the kitty are getting along pretty good, and kitty has taken to snuggling up to Eli.
