While walking along an easy trail along the Oconaluftee River we came across some elk, also known as wapiti. I had already seen the cow elk when I discovered the young bull elk camouflaged among the underbrush of the woods. What none of us had noticed was papa elk. He seemed to appear out of nowhere....

I was standing right beyond that window ..
Despite feeling rather 'knieschlockerisch' (the wobbly knee effect that happens after a scare), I had the wherewithal to take several photos. I am posting this photo because it shows how close the oak tree fell to the house. Inside the house, I was just about 12 feet from where the tree landed. I consider myself to be very lucky. (see above photo)
I might be adding a few more photos, but right now I want to get this post out. I had almost forgotten that I volunteered to put up a haiku theme by yesterday, I believe? ....oops...
If anybody wants to write a haiku with the theme of 'Power', please feel free.
Oh .. .... our air conditioner has started a slow leak.
Part of our basement has a nice puddle in it. If I get hot, I will splash around in it, I guess. Now, you know the saying - all good things come in threes. I wonder what is next?
PS: And another Oh ... the pinetop's truck? It is now a hermetically sealed lowrider (his description, not mine.)
