Today (Monday, the 11th) is also Thanksgiving, here in Canada and I am most, and constantly, thankful for wildlife because it reminds me that there is beauty, intelligence and order on this planet of ours, in spite of the human species. I am often saddened, angered and discouraged at the damage we, as the so-called *superior* species, have done to destroy all that but every time I see a bird fly, or hear it call, every time I see the autumn leaves change colours, every time I smell the rich damp air after a rain, I know that we are really no more than a small speck in the grand scheme of things. And I feel renewed and hopeful, once again.


I am also thankful that, for every government which ignores the value and importance of wildlife and nature, there are individuals who are willing to stand up and protect it, write about it, photograph it, educate kids about it. People who devote their lives to volunteering, fostering, lobbying on behalf of wildlife which often, through no fault of their own, fall victim to the fate of simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time.


I am thankful for wildlife and nature because it has always brought beauty and wonder, comfort and solace into my life. And friends, let's not forget the friends! <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> :love:

Wow that's a loaded question!
Nature is everything!
Everyday should be Wildlife Day!
As someone said "Nature can live without us, but certainly not us without nature!"

BTW, I hope all our Canadian friends had a Great Thanksgiving day!

Thank you Brenda!It's a cold, damp one today but it's a day off, so it's good! <img src="/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />


I recently joined a hiking club and although the hike I wanted to go on yesterday was already booked full, I went for a long walk by myself, just in my neighbourhood. I collected some stunning and brilliant leaves (my favourite fall activity!) and saw and heard a hairy woodpecker in a tree right next to where I was walking. He was quite obliging, too, staying put long enough for me to find a spot to watch from where I wasn't looking directly into the sun!

Excellent day for a fall hike Shelley!
The leaves are at their peak here as well and it is just gorgeous!
Time to get out the fall feeders and wait for the winter birds to take their roasts for the year!
I just got back from Las Vegas, stunning to me to see Palm Trees and weather still in the 90's!
I don't think I could live there, I love my four seasons too much, but we did have a great trip!
I didn't get to spend any time in the desert like I wanted, I want to go back when I have more time.
I did enjoy the Secret Garden however and loved seeing all the big cats! <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Brenda,
I'm glad you enjoyed your trip here. I'm sooooo sorry that we couldn't have met and that I couldn't provide you with more info. My life lately is just so involved I'm surprised I have time to breathe. The next time you come to town we'll definitely have to get together! What else did you do while you were here?

Marian

We rarely got off the strip!
Besides the Secret Garden we visited the MGM lions too and did alot of shopping at the Mirage, the Rio and the Bellagio.
I saw a few shows, and enjoyed the Oktoberfest too.
I will let you know if I get back, I would definitely like to see more of the desert area when I return, hopefully by spring! Maybe you can show me best places to go!
