Young people don’t use the term “rubbers”. They call condoms condoms…… Those crazy kids.

Oh last July, I miss your color and warmth.

The birds rarely startle when the temperatures are extremely cold.

Local rumor is temps will be above freezing next week. Rubber boot weather! I’d make a “rubbers” reference, but it’d date me.

It’s one of the only times of year I can throw boots on without tapping them out for spiders. I never even thought about it until my sister-in-law was bit by a brown recluse doing yard work.

This old looking female was with three male turkeys. They were complete and total dickheads to her, not letting her get under the bird feeders to eat. I ran out and gave her a secret stash of her very own corn. The male cardinals were chasing the females away from the feeders too. You should see how I over react when Jon tries to taste something off from my plate.

      You and Dad are nature guys and true survivalists really. (: Have a wonderful weekend Uncle Tom. I’m still tempted to sneak to the mall and catch a picture of Aunt Mary while she’s distracted walking. Loves to you both!
