Word Bird Wednesday

Time once again for Word Bird Wednesday!  You don't have to be an experienced bird watcher or photographer (Thank the LORD) to join in the fun.  All you really need is a love of birds--observing them, photographing them, feeding them, learning about them, sharing them, enjoying them--or just ooohing and ahhhing over the finds of others.  Whatever it is you enjoy about birds, join up with Springman's Word Bird Wednesday at The Pine River Review.  You won't be sorry--unless you miss it.


The busy-ness is OVER!  DD3 (Birdie) is a college graduate!  She is now the proud holder of a BS in Athletic Training and a BS in Physical Education with a concentration in Exercise Science!  AND she is headed to Texas for grad school!  Yes, I might be somewhat proud...just somewhat.  Except that Texas is a long way from home...

Meanwhile, out at the pond a laughing gull searches for breakfast---
