Bird Homes on Our Deck

I finally turned two of my many gourds into bird homes and hung them from our newly painted 'beach beige' deck. Hopefully sweet little birds will take up residence soon ...

... right now they are living in Robin's Spider plant on our Barzebo ...
... you can't have 'Spidey' back now Robin ... sorry!

p.s. rumor has it Chris and Ellen have a bidding war going on for the sale of their home! Congrats! ... we are all looking forward to having Thanksgiving at your new home in AZ! I'll make the Brussels sprouts!

Happy Birthday Michele!

Happy Birthday Sis!
(Michele and Geralyn Jan 1963)

To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time.
~Clara Ortega

Happy Birthday Aunti Shell!
(Kevin, Michele, and Bryan Christmas 2007)

If there is any immortality to be had
among us human beings,

It is certainly only in the love
that we leave behind.

Father's like mine don't ever die.

~ Leo Buscaglia

Happy Dad's Day!
