On Eagles Wings~~~

What a sight to behold...an eagle soaring, high in the sky. Such a magestic animal to behold...and I was one of the lucky ones to see such a site today!! Just 6 miles from my home, on the freeway...I spotted a huge bird flying low above the expressway, black wings stretched out...but wait! This bird had a white tail...and a white head. No way?? YES way...an eagle! I have never seen an eagle in the wild, flying. And we drove directly underneath it's path of flight. I will forever remember the thrill of seeing this beautiful bird...and I eagerly look forward to seeing more of these birds who have returned to Ohio. This photo is not the same bird...but this is just like what I saw today. If you live in Ohio, pay attention to the skies!

The view from my window....

Well, I was up bright and early this morning! I'm so proud of myself...I'm usually held captive in my bed during these cold, chilly days during Christmas vacation. As I was standing at my scrap table, making adorable tags to add to the wrapped gifts, I glanced out my window. It's so peaceful to watch the birds twitter here and there while I'm being creative. I can also keep an eye out for impending weather from the south.
Pictures aren't nearly as good, but here's a quick snapshot into a piece of my world. May your day be as peaceful!

Survival, the miracle coyote!

Just had to share this story with everyone...thanks Sandy for sharing with me!! Hope you all have a great weekend~~


Miracle coyote

Meet the wiliest of all coyotes: Hit by a car at 75mph, embedded in the fender, road for 600 miles - and SURVIVED!
When a brother and sister struck a coyote at 75mph they assumed they had killed the animal and drove on. They didn't realize this was the toughest creature ever to survive a hit-and-run. Eight hours, two fuel stops, and 600 miles later they found the wild animal embedded in their front fender - and very much alive. Daniel and Tevyn East were driving at night along Interstate 80 near the Nevada-Utah border when they noticed a pack of coyotes near the roadside on October 12. When one of the animals ran in front of the car, the impact sounded fatal so the siblings thought there no point in stopping. 'Right off the bat, we knew it was bad,' Daniel explained: 'We thought the story was over.' After the incident around 1 AM, they continued their 600 mile drive to North San Juan - even stopping for fuel at least twice. But it was only when they finally reached their destination at 9am did they take time to examine what damage they may have sustained. At first it looked as though it was going to be quite gruesome. '[Daniel] saw fur and
the body inside the grill,' Tevyn East said. 'I was trying to keep some distance. Our assumption was it was part of the coyote - it didn't register it was the whole animal.' Daniel East got a broom to try and pry the remains out of the bumper and got the shock of his life. 'It flinched,' Tevyn East said: 'It was a huge surprise - he got a little freaked out.'

'We knew it was bad': Tevyn East, who was in the car when it hit the coyote, bends down to take a look at the fur poking through the fender .



Fur Pete's sake: What Mr. East spotted as he bent down to inspect the damage to his car - the body of the coyote poking out through the radiator .




Wily coyote: The animal's head can be seen as rescuers took apart the front fender to save it after it was struck by the car at 75mph




Miracle escape: As the animal struggled, wildlife protection officials put a loop around its neck to prevent it from further injuring itself. The front of the car is completely taken apart as the coyote begins to wriggle free.




And voila! Tricky the toughest coyote ever rests in a cage after its ordeal - which it survived with just some scrapes to its paw .

Romancing the Road...

I don't usually post 2 in one day...but a good friend just sent this and I wanted to pass it along! Here's to all the women drivers!!

How Simple can it be??

I am ashamed to admit it...but I've been under the impression that you actually needed those cute, little bag clips in order to seal and protect those precious potato chips, or pretzels, or doritos... In these uncertain times, you can now save your pennies and simply fold your chip bag closed. Watch and be amazed~~
