A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That....

Today's Greeting

Baby Album


This one reminds me of a Will Rogers quote (which is on a greeting card that will come later), "Sometimes you have to go out on a limb, because that's where the fruit is."

Life is good!

This little wren has no tail...It's not one of the fledglings - it's definitely one of the adults (feeder, rather than feedee). It seems to be able to steer ok -

The blackpoll was back in the bird tree...

And - here are the grandchildren:
Jack, on the campaign trail in Philly.Nick on his 7th birthday.
Maddie, the princess of the kingdom.

Emily - also known as Miss Em.

This is my life - and yes, little wren, life is good.

( NOTE: The center of my life for the last 38 years, declined to pose for a photo.)

Wonderful photos. I love the card. The bluebird feathers are incredible in the second picture. The "reaching" bird is great! All of your pictures are terrific, as always. I enjoyed seeing such nice family photos, too.

Love the baby bluebird in the bath....looks like fan dancer spreading her fans in modesty. That reaching shot is cute too and the little wren and blackpole. Always so clear and sharp and detailed! Your family look great too....you are obviously greatly blessed.

What beautiful grandchildren! Your daughter must have taken those pictures. Love the back of that little bluebird in the bath! I can believe your honey wouldn't pose (mine would never). How I wish a Blackpoll warbler would come to my tree ;-)
