From time to time, throughout the winter a Jackrabbit will come to our yard and spend the day hunkered down somewhere that provides good cover. Jackrabbits are one of the few animals that change color with the seasons and, with this being a white winter, this one is very white with its ears being the most visible part against the snow. Some of them are very nervous and run away as soon as someone steps outside but others are quite confident that they are hidden and stay in the same spot all day while we come and go.  For more about Jackrabbits, go to Rocky Mountain Wildlife at the top of this page.

I grew up in the country near a small Montana town, I have spent a lot of time in the outdoors, working, fishing, hunting and camping but have always been interested in mechanical and electrical things. Most of my life has been spent in the use, care and repair of things mechanical, electrical an electronic. After being retired for several years, I began writing and published my first novel at the age of 79. Now, at the age of 82, I have recently published my fourth noveland it is available from me or from the pulisher or book distributor.
