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.

Buddy Bear Came For A Visit

I had fallen asleep on the couch last night. I was sleeping right next to the open window in the living room when I was awoken by a crunching sound. Not sure of what I was hearing, I looked out the window and sure enough there was Buddy Bear about 15 feet away having a snack of bird seeds. I got up and yelled at him through the window, but he didn’t budge, so I went outside on the deck, which is on the far right in the video, and yelled at him again. This time he got up and ran off.
You can see at the end of the video when he looks up to his right and then runs off, that’s when I was on the deck, again, only a few feet away.

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.
