I went out to feed the birds this morning, and scared away a whole flock of Doves. They were all huddled under the overhang of the house looking for any morsels of food that were left from the day before. The squirrels were there too, and I saw signs of a Racoon that had been rumaging around near the feeders. I feel sorry for the animals. I wonder if they feel the cold? We’ve been feeding the critters for years and making sure that they have water in a heated bird bath. I know it gets tiresome and expensive to take care of these quys, but It gives my wife and I pleasure watching them in the trees and running around the yard all year long. Take a few minutes and a few bucks and put out some food for the critters. The critters are cold too.
The snow continues. Even though there wasn’t enough snow to call a snow day, the newest snow fall was enough to require some plowing and shoveling. I wonder how long the snow will last perhaps into March or April. It’s been a long time since this part of Ohio has experienced this kind of weather. I still agree with the THE GROUNDHOG, that spring is coming sooner than later, but There will be more snow days.
Well, the Super Bowl is over. To me this is usually the sign that spring is on it’s way. I remember watching the game with my Dad and my brother and enjoying the camaraderie with the people in the world that were the most like me. My Dad’s gone now , but Greg and I have reconnected in the last year and we got together with our wives yesterday to watch the game and reminisce over old times, good food prepared by my brother and his wife and enjoy the Football. Now that I’m older, I realize how important family is. My wife Kathy and I are really enjoying the time we have gotten to spend with Cheryl, my brothers wife and her family, and my brother Greg. Kathy says it’s amazing how much alike Greg and I are. It surprises me when we talk and I discover the similarities in our interests and beliefs. I miss my Dad, especially his wit and charm, and I’m glad to have my brother in my life. Here’s to Greg and Cheryl and my wife Kathy for her understanding and support. Here’s to spring, I know it’s on the way. Here’s to Super Sunday’s.
Well, I think I’m about tired of freezing rain and snow for the week. We have weathered almost an inch of freezing rain and 3″ of snow, with temps ranging from 7 degrees to 43 degrees and back again to 11 degrees. I know it’s not like the 2 feet of snow and high winds in Chicago, but this kind of weather is hard on the trees and shrubs in the nursery and landscapes. Many broken branches, and evergreens bent to the ground will be affected in the future. What a week! I hope you survived the storms.
