Wild Kingdom

Okay...I'm not old enough to remember the original Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom show (started airing in 1963), I actually wasn't even thought of at that point...try about 13 or so years later, but my husband and sister are 10 years my senior, and remember the show from the 1970's. They affectionately refer to where we live as "Wild Kingdom".
We have many a bear, deer, coyotes, turkeys (coming out of our ears...anyone need one for Thanksgiving??!!), raccoons, skunks, possums, foxes, and the occasional Canadian Bobcat. Well...we have a new neighbor in town. A MOUNTAIN LION!!! A neighbor of ours (we don't have any 'real neighbors' per se) but a man down the road is an avid hunter in our surrounding woods and sets up a motion sensored camera to track deer and bear paths. Well...his camera captured a mountain lion with a doe in it's mouth just the other day.
This is getting a little too wild for me!
Bears, bobcats, mountain lions...Oh My!!!


  1. Yikes! I totally take for granted being able to send my kiddos outside to play...

  2. Howdy from Missouri, I found you via We are THAT family. After thumbing through your blog I've decided you are a new favorite of mine and I just added you to my Favorite Corners of the Internet list. Will be visiting again soon!
