YAM, you are funny! In her comments yesterday, she suggested we call the place Crumbly Acres! (YAM has a way with words, and we have 16 acres!) Bumbly fawn, both of us with aches and pains, it fits. That tickled the cockles for several of us! That said, we are carrying on. Those aches and pains are difficult to deal with some days. We keep trying to laugh. I know many of you can empathise.
Even Isabelle has been sick, and off school for about a week with a cold. We Facetimed, and it was hilarious. I couldn't hear her. Now, this is normal for phone calls. Both of us, JB and I, tend to put people on MUTE accidentally. Below was our conversation, for about ten minutes. I would talk, then she would answer by text. I suggested sign language.
We can see the birds coming and going from here. It's a two-fer: I am practicing for the Christmas Bird Feeder Count. The birds have been busy out the front window. The female cardinal was almost cooperative. The male, not so much!
I'm rather behind on videos, and when I upload a new one, only to find a better one the next day, I'll delete the old ones.Here they are sparring, just as the snow started. Soon mating season will be done. Hormones will decline, and they will lose their antlers.
