Oh, that's a great idea. Hopefully her book will be out by next year, and that would look great.

They are indeed humungous. Has the momma bird been feeding them more lizards with growth hormone?

Actually the mother tends to feed them things like cutworms, caterpillars, and various grubs. It's the father that brings in lizards and the occasional bird.

Wow, look at them, so grown up and out there exploring the world. I just hope they stick to the general vicinity so that we can keep tabs on them.

It looks like the little bug is trying to send you a message. :D What's that in the bowl? A pie or a snack?

^Nice. :yes:
Thank you. It was nice to be able to visit the beach without freezing. When I was there, I noticed a group of people standing together a ways down the shore, so I shot a picture in that direction. When I zoomed in on them, I deduced that they must have been having some kind of an Easter church service on the beach.

Thank you. emma is doing good and should be back in a couple of weeks when her computer is fixed. She keeps saying how much she misses coming here. She's put her house on the market so that she can move to a smaller place and get some money to help sort out the financial mess that the fiduciary left her. She's also got a guy in her congressman's office who's trying to get her some reimbursement for the assisted living place she had to pay for a couple of years ago.

Glad to hear she's making progress. You're such a good friend, helping her the way you do.
