Spring in Florida

This Pileated Woodpecker has been hanging around. He’s (or she’s) not afraid of me at all.
I draw the line when it attacks my car window though!

Spring in Wisconsin

I swear, I saw a Robin with its wing outstretched, trying to hitchhike on the side of the road Friday morning.  Haven't seen any nest building activity yet; they have been just hanging around low to the ground. We are halfway through the month of April.

This is the “Look.”

Yes, she is spoiled! This is the “look!” Translation, “take me out, now,”

Spring in Florida

This year I caught the iris blooming. Because we heat up so quickly, these blooms come and go like lightning. Today it was 85 degrees when I ran to the grocery store. I think it’s above that now.

Spring Break

It is cloudy, 40 degrees, windy and QUIET. 
All the 14-17 year olds are at home or in Florida. 

A colleague asked me what I was doing for Spring Break....

Jim Gaffigan on why he can't talk about THAT topic

If you've never watched the Sunday Morning program with Jane Pauley you should consider finding it. It offers more than what your ordinary nightly news delivers. They offer a variety of topics and some "feel good" news that just doesn't market well enough to hit primetime. Also, if you haven't seen Jim Gaffigan in concert, you are missing out. He is a gas... and the jokes are mostly clean.

A Few Of My Least Favorite Things....

I thought we'd try this in reverse this time.  
Hey Eeyore, I happen to LIKE a rainy day!

Weekend Thoughts

Can I just say that I love our website? 

An old blog I posted a many years back on our former site popped up on Facebook. It was from a different era. I followed the link to reminisce, which was a dead end, as all traces of my posts have been removed (of course.) We did have some extreme fun in our day, there.....  I quickly scanned the current dialog on the website. It was so negative, doom and gloom, political bashing, Racine hating, and sadly, extremely depressing.

I know our numbers are down, which is okay. We no longer experience the Racine fray that once came looking. I never wanted fame; in fact, much of the looky-loo with no comments or input was rather disconcerting. We've also lost a few good friends to the good earth, and I still miss them dearly and daily. What we have is solid. We've built friendships that have weathered the storms. We have a place to go for comfort, for laughs, for companionship. We have long time ties that bond and I am thankful for that.
