Ignore the date on the camera ( it is wrong). If only March was bare ground( I think not). We still had a ton of snow here. The bird almost looks like a Robin...except it was skinny, and has a yellow chest. I had to zoom in because it was on the other side of the lot. Every time I got close enough it flew away. What is it ? I'm sure they are around, but this is the first time I have seen one that close.

.....by the way, the pictures were taken from the internet, not by me personally. I do have 2 pictures but I took them with my cell phone and could not get close enough to share a good picture of them. Take care. Cheers !!
The Snowy Owl
Like a silent whisper the snowy owl flew into a winter wilderness
A thin shallow mist stretched over part of an icy lochan
A narrow stretch of pine trees laden with snow stopped close to the waters edge
In front of her the snowy owl saw the panoramic view of twin mountains, features softened with heavy snowfalls
This white illumination of timeless wonder and beauty was home to the snowy owl
As silently she had come silently she went
Tomorrow would be just another day

The Caravan was vandalized, smashed up, drugs and alcohol were involved. The ignition was screwed up to make it look like it was stolen, then dumped down a ravine around 2:30 a.m. I was not pleased. It has all been settled now, so I thought I would share a few photos of what was left.
There were broken beer bottles inside, and a case of MGD ( what was left) thrown against the seat in the middle row. There were a lot of things found scattered around in there, including an empty can that smelled....'funny'....if you know what I mean.
Anyway, my theory is someone else was driving too fast, drunk and high with other people, they hit something in the front that screwed the left front tire, so they dumped it down a ravine and left it there. The police were involved and had an idea already of who the driver was. Soooo.....anyone looking for used parts ? LOL !! Take care and have a wonderful day :-)

I took her on her first day of kindergarden,12 years ago, and I'll be there for her last day of high school. Like all parents, we have been there for every milestone, every project, every problem, and every solution, boyfriends, heartache, and laughter. I know she's graduating , but then what ? She'll move on, work, then move out, get engaged, and then get married, then have kids of her own. Or the order may be reversed a bit, but she'll still move on. It's amazing how fast they grow up. My son is 11 now. Already I feel like at his young age, time is flying past. I can almost look him right in the eye. But , I am also only 5'1', so I think I can look most 11 and 12 year olds in the eye, LOL !! Steven ( in the photos) is rather tall, so I need a chair to stand on if I want to to be eye level with him, LOL !! Anyways, just thought I would post a few photos. The other girl in the burgundy dress is Ashley's best friend since grade 2. Steven is Ashley's boyfriend...then they are friends...then they are dating again...sigh...I get lost after awhile...LOL !!

She is Happiness, Laughter, Life, Wisdom, She is everything I hope to be.....She is my Mom....I Love You !!
"A mother will lend a helping hand
until you have the strength to stand.
She'll pick you up when you are down,
when you need a friend she'll stick around.
A mother is one who listens well,
will keep her word; will never tell.
A mother never pokes or pries
but stands quietly by your side,
giving you the strength you need,
encouraging you to succeed.
A mother is one who can be strong
when you need someone to lean on.
You're more than a mother to me;a reflection of Him in your face I see,
a love that knows no boundaries."
Excerpt from ' More Than A Mother' By Kari Keshmiry
