:jawdrop: Wow, I thought maybe once a year. I can't even imagine every few years. That's just wrong. :lol:

Here is a cardinal that was waiting very impatiently for his food:

They know I'm feeding them. :unsure: I actually got a closer shot today.

And here is what happens when a squirrel doesn't want it's picture taken:

There is a squirrel behind that snow. :lol:

It's improved a lot since she moved in, when the pit was basically raw clay. But the area is nice. Out in those woods is a nice trail and a little river.

Yeah, it's nice sitting out on that porch, especially in the Summertime.

And now here's a couple from our new blizzard:

This is my house from the mailbox across the street.

And the old-fashioned diner on the corner from almost the same spot. I was disappointed because you can't see the sign.

It's such a common bird here, that I forget that their range isn't the entire country.

That would be bad enough, but the streetlight is right in front of it. It looked fine through my eyes.

It was above freezing this morning, so I headed down to the beach. I had to climb trudge through snow to get to the actual shore, and I only lasted about ten minutes because "above freezing" is not equivalent to "warm." :lol: I got a couple of pictures, though, and here's the best of them:

Slightly shaky, because I was shivering, but nice clouds.

That's cool. They must have upgraded the img code with the new PHB version.

^^^ That's neat. Did they just help themselves to your porch, or do you do what you can to invite them?

I noticed something about a few of the photos I took:

Is this a picture of wood?
Wood.jpg
Or the clay floor of a runoff?
Or runoff.jpg
Then there is the constant mud:
Before sunk in clay mud.jpg
And the Help:
Help is always there.jpg
And, does this happen to anyone else, or just me? I have to simply submit in here, because I preview and this is the result:

I have no idea what's happening with the attachments. It doesn't happen to me because I hyperlink from Postimage. I think that is a puzzle for huggle. :mellow:

I can't wait for the baby Road Runners to hatch. We're all going to be aunts and uncles. :D
