Life changes yet stays the same

Just a very short post today as we have to travel to a faraway neurosurgeon. He's been my surgeon for a long time now, and it's interesting to think of how much my life has changed over the long time since he first operated on my spine.

Like this girl joining our family...

... and my new-found love of tracking our wildlife using trail cameras. The next photo is special. In the years I've had trail cameras, this is the very first photo of a Gray Fox. It is a "species of concern" in our area, and I'm thrilled to see one in our neck of the woods.

Believe it or not, gray foxes can climb trees due to their unique forelimbs. That cool fact had me wondering if I could entice him to climb a tree in front of a camera. Hmm.
Have a great day!


  1. I hope your visit with the doctor goes well and I hope they can figure out something to help you with your pain!

    I love the photo of the fox! They are so neat!

  2. Good luck! Our hearts are with you.

  3. What a thrill to see an endangered animal!

  4. Our good thoughts are with you on your trip!! That little fox is beautiful. stella rose and momma

  5. That fox is beautiful!

    I am always amazed when I see the red foxes in my area jump our fence. They move just like a second standing next to the fence, the next a vertical leap to the top of the fence, a moment of balance and then down into the yard. They definitely do not jump like a dog despite being more dog than cat genetically.

  6. Nice to remember all the good things that have happened! We hope your visit brings some answers and some relief.

  7. We hope all goes well for you, KB. We're sending many, many positive vibes!

  8. I think that is one of your best images - what a gift.
    I hope your travel to the doc is not too painful, KB. And I'll be hoping and hoping that the neurosurgeon will have good words for you!

  9. That fox is so cool. I hope you find some answers to help you feel much better soon!!

  10. Hope the neurosurgeon has some help for you. Good luck.

    Fantastic Mr. Fox! Wait, that's the name of a book, isn't it? Great photograph.

  11. The fox is BEAUTIFUL!! Hope all goes well at the human-vet...
