More views on the way to Wisconsin...

 A party was already in progress Thursday afternoon on the Iowa side of the Mississippi at McGregor. 
 Mascot of the casino??  Interesting...
 An empty barge and its tug heading south on the Mississippi River.
Did not know this about the Ringling Bros. Circus.  This is in a building in downtown McGregor (Iowa).  (We didn't go inside.)

Evening visitors in the yard (vicious deer??)...

 I've seen one of these around our 'neighborhood' a few times in the last couple of weeks.
Last night this one walked through and stopped, so I picked up the camera (and didn't take time to turn down the volume on the 9 pm newscast) and took these pictures out the window.

Then, another one showed up on this 38-second video.  It's wiggly, so you may not want to try it, but it does show them both wandering through our yard.
