    Some strange sights during these times. And also some sad ones. I saw this tent along the Rillito River "Loop" path on my daily walk recently.

    Don't look under the bridges Sandi, most are occupied, especially if there within a mile of liquor store or a car detail shop.

    And you get there faster than you can spell Kohorna...

    A musician that I like very much got stranded and locked down on a tour through Canada. She has been taken in by an old couple just to get her off the street: no tour, no gigs, no income, no hotel...
    Man, can you get f.cked up quickly these days!

    One of the guys I used to go to HDRCGB rallies with never put his tent up,He would chuck it on the floor next to his bike and wander off to get pissed (as ya do at these things) at some point in the afternoon a couple of youngsters would rock up and erect it for him,Turns out he would give em a fiver each and the job was done.....if he couldn't get anyone to do it he just took his sleeping bag to somewhere dry and slept there

    I’m not really a fan of the old Fords but a guy I used to work with has a 2 door Sierra Cossie and an Escort Cossie, both immaculate and in white.
    I can certainly appreciate why he loves them. They’re his pride and joys yet he still uses them both regularly :cool:

    Considering the title of this thread, here‘s my favorite Ford:
    A 17m Coupé (the Germans called it Badewanne (bathtub))...
    My granddad owned one before he changed to Simca :p

    I saw these shoes just sitting there beside the walking path recently on one of my morning walks. They are gone now but it was a rather odd sighting.

    Another sighting--and meeting--on a recent morning walk on our cycling/walking path. Not so strange but truly delightful. Meet Bruce the Bulldog.

    His parents were in the process of making some sort of cross out of tape on their driveway. They were planning to use different tape colors and make it look like stained glass they said. Guess I'll walk that route today and see if they finished their project.

    Well, I walked past the in-process driveway art project this morning and Bruce's doggy mom and dad finished their "stained glass" driveway mosaic. It's quite lovely, I think!

    Yesterday on my morning walk I saw a mama javelina and two babies crossing a residential street heading towards a steep embankment leading to a wash. Javelinas can be very quick and they were able to all but disappear into the underbrush before iI could get my iPhone out. I did manage to snap a pic of just the mama as I peeked over the edge of the embankment. She wasn't too happy about it and gave me a big snort before running off with her little ones.

    IMG_8209.jpeg

    For any of you who have seen my travel threads, "Javier the Javelina" is my travel mascot (thanks for the idea, @OsteKuste) because javelina are common in the American Southwest. This is Javi at last year's Distinguished Gentleman's Ride.

    IMG_4356.jpeg

    Here's a photo from Google Images of a mama javelina and a couple of babies. This is about the size of the babies I saw yesterday. Javelinas are fairly common around here but they hide pretty well so seeing them out and about is less common. They typically aren't dangerous but they are protective so that mama's snort yesterday was a little disconcerting. Javelinas look like pigs but are actually in the peccary family.

    Sandi, the first of the pics is a great wild-life shot in my eyes: First, you look at the cacti in the foreground, and then you are suddenly aware of the Javelin staring back at you!
    We call them Wildschwein here (wild boar). Must be the same family at least... As you said: when they have little ones, they can get quite aggressive. I had some encounters myself here in the forests, but all peaceful.
    Whenever a wild animal charges at me, I start telling jokes... Has never failed yet! They all fall asleep instantly... :blush:
