Good morning world. I didn’t jump out of bed this morning, but at least I was motivated to get up .. yesterdays “happy moment” with my turkey friends.. has given me the nudge needed to leave my warm bed and sleeping companions (whippets) to get ready for an early departure for the woods.
We’ve had a bit of a return of a cold snap. When I got to the area yesterday, I again was a shade late, they were on their way back into the wooded area, I could see their tail ends sauntering through the trees, picking their way over the snow. (the picture above is from last fall). There were at lest 5 of them, I reacted, I called out to them like I did last year.. a beckoning call I used… (sweet talk) with coaxing and air kisses.. darned if two of them didn’t stop in their tracks.. to listen. I was encouraged, my heart may have even sped up a bit…
“Come to me, come on… look what I have for you…” (bribery pure and simple) the two that had stopped, actually began to run back towards me… they had to have been from the group that I fed last fall. The happiness and joy they gave me by responding to me and coming right up close .. after months of being away from me… tugged at my heart…. I couldn’t have loved them more…
I will always marvel at how Nature has a way of showing us that we are all part of the Universe and kindness and pure intent (sincerity) (makoto) are what will bring about positive results/moments in our lives.

Who says these wonderful birds don’t have personalities. This beauty was showing off for me today, and I was lucky enough to get my cell out for a picture. Since I get to see them now almost every morning, I am getting used to them, and them to me… I put out a product called bird butter that I get from a specialty shop.. I apply it to the bark of trees for the woodpeckers and smaller birds. Today, my attention was called to look over to where I had just applied it.. to see not a woodpecker, but….
They are proving to be delightful critters, they are playful and naughty, curious and as you can see by the top pictures.. they can be hams/showoffs. they were seen eyeing the back of my car where the birdseed is stored (my trunk lid was up)… so far I’ve seen them with their necks outstretched, but they have kept a distance. I’ll be watching them. =^_^=
Be in tune with the feelings of others. Let’s start by trying to understand other peoples’ feelings.
I can only begin to imagine what the fragrance must be around that wisteria at the time Shirley took the pictures.

You can only change yourself. Before you start telling people how they should do things, think of how you can be more flexible.

Dan, thanks again for the pictures of Pittsburgh, you just saved me a long drive.=^_^=. I have been a Penguins fan for years.. not because I was a huge hockey fan, but because I loved penguins, and besides friends live in Philly and are Flyers fans. ^^^ you know how it is ^^^ Go Penguins !!!!!!
He shoots – He SCORES !!!!!!!! I think there is a game in October between Pittsburg and the Canadians Oct. 17, they play the Maple leafs Nov. 11 the Senators on Jan. 18/23 But the only one that will have me checking the scores will be NOV 25 when they play the Flyers. (hahahah).. hey.. not me, I’m not a hockey fan!
Oh could be a bit nippy out there, frost advisory over the next few days.. at 5:49 a.m it is 55 Degrees F, that’s not bad… It will be a good outing this morning.
Think “now is the Time” Instead of “It’s no use now” Don’t give up by thinking its too late. Tell yourself that there is more that can be done.
