If I thought Thursday had been kind of a dismal do nothing day I hadn't met Friday yet.  Pheebs and I did get out in the cold rain for a short toot but were home again before the time we usually leave in the mornings.  Not even a lot of birds flying today and with temps around 40F it just felt too damp to be enjoyably outside.  Yes I know April showers bring May flowers but we don't need those flowers drowned before they get here. 
The creative side of my mind doesn't seem to be cooperating with itself tonight so I'm short on words again but let me just say this.....Thank you to everyone for all your kind words over the years.

  1. Happy that you put a few words out there along with the wonderful photos of your feathered friends.

  2. And thank you for all of the hundreds and hundreds of fabulous photos you have shared with us.
