    Just thought it would be nice to have a thread to post generic outdoor photos that we didn't want to start a thread of their own.

Here's a pic of my son, Dominic, with his Darton Bow.  We bought it for him on his seventh birthday, it adjust from 15-55lbs.  I told him we bought this one, he's responsible for buying his next one!

Good idea Dan...we had a thread going a while back that showed basically your outside barbeque area...where you "do your damage" so to speak. This is in the same vein...just pics to show off, not necessarily worthy of a thread of their own....I like it.Thumbs Up

   No, they always get released back in the water.  I'll keep an ocassional catfish, but for down here...we need all the fish in the water rather than in our bellies. 


    you think that last one was small LOL  He does love to go fishin' though.  Oddly, my oldest likes to go ice fishing...although we haven't had good ice in the last two years here.  We had two grown men fall throw the ice just a couple of weeks ago, both were fine.  What were they thinking!

Good Afternoon,
 
Wow. Beautiful photos everybody ...  
 
This is a spruce my husband planted on the grounds of the vet clinic and lab, in Alcarria, Castilla La Mancha, Spain ... 82 kilometres from the Madrid Capital where we reside.
 
 
 
THE COUNTRY TRAIL FOR THE DONKEYS, HORSE, AND " ANIMAL FARM " AS WE CALL IT ... THIS PROPERTY IS OWNED & OPERATED BY THE VET GROUP THAT MY VET HUSBAND IS PART OF AND HE TOO, IS AN OWNER ... ( AS ONE CAN SEE, ALCARRIA, HILL COUNTRY IN CASTILLA LA MANCHA IS DRY ) ... AND IS QUITE RURAL ...

It looks like pretty nice country there, Margi - the dry, warm climate must be similar to Montana in the summer.
 
How long ago did Fil plant that spruce?

Tas,
 
I shall ask The Vet and post ... I believe he bought a baby spruce ... and thus, with the assistance of his colleagues, they planted --- however, I shall obtain all the details for you.
 
ALL the photos are lovely. ALCARRIA is very cold and dry in the winter, and arid and hot in summer.
 
The altitude ranges from 650 metres to 1.200 metres above sea level ... Lots of ravines and cliffs, and raw rural forest ...
 
M.C.

Montana is exactly the same with temperature extremes; our altitudes range from about 1800 feet (550 metres) at the lowest point to 12,800 feet (3900 metres) at the highest point.

Tas,
 
Interesting ... However, I do believe Montana is much colder and much snowier !!!
 
North America is much colder than Spain ... in most parts of Iberia ...  
 
Northern USA, is truly cold especially on Canadian border ...
 
Castilla La Mancha is similar to Taos, Santa Fe and Alburquerque, New Mexico weather wise !!!
 
Very dry ... arid ... and sunny sunny ...
 
Though this year, the climatic changes brought us tons of rain --- not usual here !!!
 
m.c.

   Here's some pictures from a vacation we took back in August of 2013, at Shawnee National forest.  The kids always go on and on about tree houses, my wife found a place that had a tree house that would fit a family of five.  No, it wasn't big, but it's all you need when you've got a beautiful room outside!

Many years ago, when I got my first computer I thought a screen name should reflect who you are and the things you're known for, but soon found out that most websites wouldnt allow me to use screen names like "Get away from my daughter!" and "I'm gonna shoot you if I catch you near my wife again!".
I found out that there are people who manufacture screen names, for a price, but their prices were just too steep for an average guy like me so I just drew some consonants out of a bag of Scrabble tiles and then stuck a few vowels between them to form a multi syllable word, thereby proving that when it's too expensive to call in a tradesman it's best to just Do It Yourself And Save Up a Bundle.

A couple of weeks ago, we were out for a drive and came across this:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermitage_Castle - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermitage_Castle
This was known as "the guardhouse of the bloodiest valley in Britain", now it is just wild and lonely

They gave the world the words "bereaved" and "blackmail".

Borderers (particularly those banished by http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_VI_of_Scotland - James VI of Scotland ) took part in the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plantation_of_Ulster - plantation of Ulster becoming the people known as http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ulster-Scots - Ulster-Scots ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scotch-Irish_American - Scotch-Irish in America). Reiver descendants can be found throughout Ulster with names such as Elliot, Armstrong, Beattie, Bell, Hume and Heron, Rutledge, and Turnbulls amongst others.

Border surnames can also be found throughout the major areas of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scots-Irish_American - Scots-Irish settlement in the United States, and particularly in the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Appalachian_Mountains - Appalachian region. The historian http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Hackett_Fischer - David Hackett Fischer (1989) has shown in detail how English border culture became rooted in parts of the United States. Author http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_MacDonald_Fraser - George MacDonald Fraser wryly observed or imagined Border traits and names among controversial people in modern American history; Presidents http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lyndon_B._Johnson - Lyndon B. Johnson and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Nixon - Richard Nixon , among others. It is also noted that, in 1969, a descendant of the Borderers, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neil_Armstrong - Neil Armstrong , was the first person to set foot on the moon. In the following year, Mr. Armstrong visited the town of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Langholm - Langholm , home of his ancestors.



Here is the Bishops Curse:

The Archbishop's Cursing 

About the year 1524,The Archbishop of Glasgow, Gavin Dunbar, became exasperated at the activities of the reivers and was unable to contain himself any longer. He issued his Monition of Cursing, a wordy rant, against the reivers, which made the Archbishop the supreme curser of all time and would, if times had been different, have earned the good archbishop the highest rating in the Guinness Book of Records.

This magnificent tirade was read out from every pulpit throughout the Borders and beyond. 
The congregations must have been awestruck by 
its venom and length. Although no doubt it impressed the churchgoers, clergy, and the government, it had no impact on the reivers except as a source of great amusement.

This great cursing was a step beyond excommunication from the church. Wrongdoers who were excommunicated could, eventually, in certain circumstances, have their punishment revoked. 
Not so the cursing. It could not be rescinded: 
it was a permanent thing.

On the following page is but an extract from this splendid tirade of some 1,500 words. .


I curse thair heid and all the haris of thair heid; 
I curse thair face, thair ene, thair mouth, thair neise, thair toung, thair teith, thair crag (neck), thair shulderis, thair breist, thair hert, thair stomok, thair bak, thair wame, thair armes, thair leggis, thair handis, thair feit, and everilk part of thair body, frae the top of thair heid to the soill of thair feit, befoir and behind, within and without.

I curse thaim gangand (going), and I curse thaim rydand (riding); I curse them standand, and I curse thaim sittand; I curse thaim etand, 
I curse thaim drinkand; I curse them walkand, 
I curse them sleepand; I curse thaim rysand, 
I curse thaim lyand; I curse thaim at hame; 
I curse thaim fra hame;I curse thaim within the house; I curse thaim without the house; I curse thair wiffis, thair barnis, and thair servandis participand with thaim in thair deides.
 
I wary thair cornys, thair catales, thair woll, thair scheip, thair horse, thair swyne, thair geise (geese), thair hennys, and all thair quyk gude (livestock), I wary rhair hallis, thair chalmeris (rooms), thair kechhingis, thair stannillis, thair barnys, thair biris(byres), thair bernyardis, thair cailyardis (vetatable patch), thair plewis, thair harrowis, and the gudis and housis that is necessair for thair sustentatioun and weilfair.

And finally, I condemn thaim perpetualie to the deip pit of hell, ther remain with Lucifer and all his falllowis, and thair bodeis to the gallowis of the Burrow Mure, first to be hangit, syn revin and ruggit with doggis, swyne and utheris wyld beists, abhominable to all the warld. 

And their candillis gangis frae your sicht, as mot thair saulis gang fra the visage of God, and thair gude  faim fra the warld, quhill thair forbeir thair oppin thair synnys foirsaidis and ryse frae this teribill cursing, and mak satisfaction and pennance.
