Happy St. Patrick's Day

Thought I would be generous and share some more pics with you!  Hehe!  Lots of pictures of Tarzan this time around.  He needs his own journal.  We got about 11" inches of snow overnight.  Travis and I have some work to do later.  The birds are hitting the feeders hard this morning as they did last evening.  I almost touched a red-breasted nuthatch.  He was so determined to get some food and so tame, I slowly reached out my finger and almost touched him.  He looked into my hand to see if I had a goodie for him!  The chickadees are also quite tame and do not fly away when I come up the steps.  They let me approach to about a foot or so.  One day I need to go out with my camera and get some good closeups.  We just had a visit from the female Hairy Woodpecker.  Thats one of our larger woodpeckers.  We have a pair of them.  Also coming in for a bite to eat are Dark-eyed Junco, Tufted Titmouse, red and white breasted nuthatches, Goldfinch, Cardinal, Bluejay, Mourning Dove, Chipping Sparrow, Carolina Wren, Downy Woodpecker and Ugh, Starlings.  In the spring we will have more visitors from the south.  I can't wait for the hummingbirds.  Here is where they are right now.  Map.  Well my b/f has the corned beef in the crock pot over at his house.  His Mom is sad today, she had to put down her old horse, Flasher.  He was about 30 and getting quite frail.  He got down a few weeks ago and had to be manually lifted by a machine.  He would only sleep standing from then on and I guess his poor little legs couldn't take it anymore and he went down.  They had to euthanize him.  Poor old Flasher.  She has another horse.  Mac.  He is a pinto.  I hope to get some pictures of him in the spring.  Travis wants to go to the movies this weekend.  He wants to see 300.  I want to see Wild Hogs.  Ok I hope everyone has a nice weekend.

You should really go to Van's Warped Tour one time.  It'll keep you young!  (Be sure to take your camera.)
