Two days ago, not only did I see one robin, but hundreds and thousands of them! We’re taking care of a friend’s house while she’s in Florida for the winter and in her hayfield were tons of robins. And not only are the robins back, but they flew with flickers, kestrels, killdeer, sandhill cranes, and blue herons. Everyone arrived the same day!
And, because it was 70 degrees out, the “boys” were working in the drive. David had the day off and he was working on his “new” car, a 1978 Firebird. He drives a GEO but just had to have a cool project car. It is nice and in pretty good shape — no rust. But the hood needed sanding, welding, and painting. So he and his friend Ian worked all afternoon on it. Then behind them, Will was working on building a roll over protection canopy for the bulldozer. (He’s had a few close calls as trees fell or broke off and nearly came down on his head while working in the woods!) I thought it was kind of cute; here’s the first really warm spring day and the “boys” were all busy with their projects, one next to the other with rock and roll on the radio in the background. It put a smile on my face. Boys will be boys… — Jackie
