Butch declares war...

Butch is warring with the squirrels. They climb out to the feeder and shimmy down the wire that connects to the feeder. That is until yesterday. Butch fashioned a bucket to make an obstacle to them getting to the feeder and so far it has worked. Now they lay on a limb scoping out the situation and hoping for a miracle. So far they must not have a plan because they have yet to try but I do assume in time they will.

On the trail. The last time we walked the trail this lady passed us.

Bell tower in Jefferson

My sister-in-law, Keri Brooker was interviewed on the news last night. I am looking forward to hearing her play. Click on the link below to see the whole news feature.

Yesterday was a big bird day

 A trail kitty
 Here are the birds that visited the feeder in the time I was paying attention.

And a squirrel!

3 days of walking and...

Butch and I are establishing our walking routine. Due to laziness, cold and wet weather etc., we had fallen off our 2 miles a day, walk. I can sure tell I had sloughed off. I look forward to walking pain-free again. The pain hasn't been unbearable. Just enough to let me know I need to keep going till it feels effortless again.

Little Leo had his first T-Ball game

He is smiling as he runs for first.

He looks like a pro in his uniform!

Yeah, we're okay

Butch has his stitches out and his hand is healing nicely. He is doing his therapy with a small supple football and some play doh. The same routine and therapy as for his left hand.
The weather has been downright crappy- cold and wet! And I have fallen off my exercise regimen. I told Butch last night that if morning temps were in the 50's I would walk across town for my haircut appointment. I was excited when it was 52 and sunny this morning so for the first time since coming home, I walked my 2 miles. Maybe I will get lucky and be able to walk the trail tomorrow.
I will take a look at my photos to see if there are any I forgot to share with you.
 This has been far too common a site this Spring. We have made a bird bath/feeder out of an old satellite dish. The birds like it!  I noticed these photos were taken while the moho was being painted. It is back home in its summer home.
 I think there may be something amiss about this male cardinal's beak. It looks deformed to me

Jefferson's Freedom Rock. It is near the bike trailhead.

 Butch thought this fellow may be mushroom hunting. Maybe?
