We have the best neighbors at The Holler,

the kind with feathers.

They are the most populous of all The Hollerites,

and they make the most congenial neighbors.

At the first sign of conflict,

they just fly away,

and land somewhere quieter.

I try and emulate them,

leaving crowds behind,

and seeking my own quiet spaces.

The only problem is I can’t fly! 

Cheers to you from the feathered Hollerites~

(Note: I did this post with the new Gutenberg editor which was kind of fun. Can you detect any differences?)

    • Travel becomes a way of life. Even when you have seen so much, you just want to keep moving. But I do hear and appreciate what you say. They have moved the free range cattle off the land next to us in preparation for it becoming a nature reserve, and for the first time we are free to explore all 2000 acres of it with no fear of bulls and Ankole Watusies. The reserve is simply amazing, especially for Southern California. It is like a time capsule transporting you back to an unspoiled California, 75 or so years ago.

  1. As to your question about any differences in appearance, I don’t see any.

    O/T: I’ll be leaving a lot less *likes*. A coding change by WP has disabled the like button that use a custom domain. Support indicated it’s a result of a change of a security setting inside the browser. I can change browser, but I’ll have to change a browser setting to make it work. Instead, I’ll be leaving comments … path of least resistance. 🙂


  2. Thank you, Cindy, for your fabulous posts that take me vicariously to so many beautiful places to see so many beautiful animals, architecture and other wonderful treats; all photographed so impeccably! Thank you for the experiences I will never have first-hand, but can easily visualize through your mastery!


  3. Bonjour ou Bonsoir BELLE CINDY
    après le silence de la nuit
    chaque jour renaît
    avec le chant d’un oiseau joyeux
    pour que nos réveils soient gais
    la rosée pour rafraîchir nos pas
    et le soleil au rendez-vous
    moi je te souhaite une très belle journée ou soirée
    Et tout ce que tu désires

    Bisous, BERNARD


  4. Gorgeous photos, Cindy!!!! You always do such a wonderful job of catching the best shots. I agree with the birds. Leave the grumpy crowd and go somewhere peaceful. I love the mirrored look. I don’t think there is anything so beautiful in my neighborhood. Have a great Thanksgiving,
