… or so it seems as this pair of House Finches perch on a branch near the feeder in the backyard … to be truthful they are on a very dead branch attached to the pole of the feeder … like who wants to see photos of a bird on a bird feeder. Thanks to an unnamed friend who taught me this trick and also affixed the tubes for the branches … a little like cheating, but what the heck, if you don’t tell anyone … whoops :+) You still have to know what you are doing and get the shot.
It was a great weekend and the indoor projects are pretty well wrapped; back to painting the exterior of the house and some yard work … and put more feed in the birdfeeder … no guilt!
After church this morning my dear friend John Soderberg came up to me and whispered a secret phrase in my ear … careful Derek, you could be replaced … huge smiles :+) This is very much an inside joke known only to a few and their support is appreciated … sorry, it just struck me as very funny.

Into the air in the morning and then more mundane adventures as I clean up some work that has been promised for a while.
Spread a little joy today and smile, nothing smooth’s out a day like being on the receiving end of a warm smile.
And in this journey over a thousand hills and valleys called life, he is wisest who
is patient where the way is hard, has faith when he does not understand, and carries
into the dark places the light of a cheerful heart.
