ribbon fence

I found this fence by a school, I'm guessing the school kids must have decorated the fence.

hairball fence

Heading down the country road as I always do I spied something quite unusual.  It's the first time I have ever seen anything like it.  I know nothing about cattle and their behaviors, but I am almost 100% sure that this fence was not a "hot" fence, meaning it had no electricity going to it so that they would keep away from it, and since it was not a hot fence the cattle could rub along side of it and not get zapped, therefore producing hairballs on a good part of the fence line.  I loved it when I looked up and the cattle were watching me, I'm sure trying to figure out what exactly I was doing.

the city

My husband had to head to Chicago last week for work and I got to tag along.  
For more photos of my tag-along you can find them HERE at my other blog.

Heading into the city you could see the top of the Willis Tower in the clouds.
Tho I don't live near Chicago anymore, I still find it an awesome place to visit.

{good fences}

This past winter, tho in some places it just might seem winter is still hanging around.  Any way this past winter there have been a lot of eagles hanging around the Ocooch Mountains here in Southwest Wisconsin.  My husband and I were heading home and this Bald Eagle was having dinner on some road kill that was along the side of the road.  It took off over the fence by the time we got close enough to take any kind of a great photo of it.

oh deer

We've been seeing a lot of deer lately and not only at dusk when they usually are out.  I'm thinking with the deep snow covered ground they are having a hard time finding food.

driving along

We passed this little piece of Americana.  It seems wherever you look you will find it.
