I hope everyone had a pleasant Christmas. We still have plenty of snow and mild temps….I got the bonfire wood spotted at Point Betsie about 12 hours ahead of the snows three weeks ago, so things are in place and ready to roll for the sun set New Years Eve. [...]

Love and joy to all….
Well the season is upon us, ready or not. In my world “If you don’t have a choice…you’re ready.” We have plenty of snow so a white Christmas is assured, with mild temps as an added bonus. Two bird pics today. A shy yearling female Cardinal and my uncooperative flock [...]
