    Thanks Billboard Bob! (: (day 300 of gray drizzle……kids are anxious to get outdoors and sled and snow shoe, poor restless things!)

    • Billboard Bob?? Cute. Cute, Melissa. :-)

      We finally got sunshine yesterday and today, with highs in the 60s. But tomorrow’s high only 40. Go figure.

      Are your kids tired of the Ormie video yet?? :-)

      Happy Thursday! xo

  3. BTW, I was serious about your photographs. I love those close-ups. You apparently must be doing well with your 300mm lens. I would love to have a shot like that of the Nuthatch.

    You rock. :-)

      Many thanks! Your peacocks remind me of our neighbor’s guinea fowl. (:
