Caveat: Tree #1555 “The eagle’s stare”

This tree (in a neighbor-down-the-road’s yard) got stared at by an eagle (just barely visible perched near the middle of the double-row of disused pier pillars going out into the water).

Caveat: Tree #1546 “Dog on the beach”

This tree hung out near the beach while the dog ran around on the mud flats at low tide, harassing seagulls.


You can see the dog as a white speck at the waterline in the left-center of the picture.

Caveat: Tree #1545 “Veterans”

This tree was in front of the Veterans Center, in town.

I try to stop at the Veterans Center (=VFW Post) in Craig on Thursdays, when Arthur and I go into town for “shopping day.” Art resists, but I think at least some small degree of socialization must be good for him, despite his inclination otherwise. Anyway, he can hang out with other grumpy old men for a while. And Jan, who is the administrative head of the post and has helped much in the past with Veterans-related advocacy-type help, is a reliable friend.

Caveat: Tree #1542 “The illumination”

This tree was infested by a treehouse – I haven’t posted a picture of the treehouse in a while. Not that much has changed – I’ve left it dormant all winter. But the sun touched it this afternoon.

Caveat: The Planet Rahet

[This is a cross-post from my other blog.]

My low-effort bragpost for this week is a whole ‘nother planet: Rahet. I think I’ve written before about Rahet, but it’s been a few years, maybe.

Rahet is a “slippy map” planet, on the OSM platform, just like Ogieff ( or Arhet ( For a long time, Rahet was languishing with a moribund render and no api server. But I recently got both up and running again such that it’s just as easy to edit and update the Rahet map as it is for those other planets. Unlike those other planets, though, Rahet is just mine – I haven’t opened it up to other mappers and I don’t intend to. It’s meant to be the setting for a sci-fi novel that I occasionally work on, started some 30 years ago. The map is pretty spare – filling a whole planet is of course utterly impossible.

Here’s a screenshot of the planet.
