With freezing hands after filling up the bird feeder & breaking ice in the bird bath I quickly retreated back into the house & resigned myself to just staying there until Thursday’s cloudy morning let enough sun through to warm things up. I so much do not like cold weather just as much as I so much do not like hot weather!! Where can we live that has nice steady & comfortable temperature of 75F each day with no humidity & lots of sunshine. And warm nights too………..
Spent part of my day reading & was actually able to grab some new bird photos while stretched out in my backyard gravity chair. Air was still a wee touch cool but this afternoon’s warming sun sure felt nice.
George & Suzie are soon headed to Borrego Springs California so I sent George an email with directions to the Great Stone Eagle in case they decide on a day trip up around Warner Springs way. This is quite an impressive natural stone structure & in case anyone is interested in seeing it if they are in the Borrego Springs area here is my post for the day we went In Search Of The Great Stone Eagle. Driving directions are in the post.

Have you ever typed your own name into a search engine? I did that today & was surprised at how many times my name, my photos, & the Bayfield Bunch kept coming up in different websites. It put a smile on my face each time I recognized one of my own photos being used for a good purpose. Some pictures had a photo credit & some didn’t but that’s alright I’m just happy that someone or some organization has thought enough of my photos to include them in their brochures & advertising etc. I didn’t see any of my photos that I felt were not used in a proper way. Like I have said many times in my posts if people enjoy looking at my photos as much as I enjoy taking them then that’s a bonus for me. If my photos are used in a positive way by someone then that’s an added bonus for me. It’s my way of giving a little something back & I’m perfectly happy to continue taking photos for folks as long as they enjoy looking at them:))
AND I WASN’T THE ONLY ONE OUT ENJOYING THE AFTERNOON SUN
GROANER’S CORNER:(( An elderly gentleman had serious hearing problems for a number of years. He went to the doctor and the doctor was able to have him fitted for a set of hearing aids that allowed the gentleman to hear 100%. The elderly gentleman went back in a month to the doctor and the doctor said, "Your hearing is perfect. Your family must be really pleased that you can hear again." The gentleman replied, "Oh, I haven't told my family yet. I just sit around and listen to their conversations. I've already changed my will three times!!"
