Thirteen years ago now we were staying a few days at the Lost Dutchman State Park at the base of the Superstition Mountains 40 miles east of Phoenix, Arizona. Here is one of those days we were there..... Hiking Up Superstition Mountain
| THE FIRST BIRD I SAW ON THE CHANGED FEEDER THIS MORNING OF COURSE WAS A GRACKLE|
A second sunny day with temps reaching 48F..Needless to say, we had some welcome melting going on. A walk in the Bayfield cemetery this morning and some minor puttering around with my snow shovel this afternoon helping Mother Nature get rid of some snow. Overnight and Friday's rain will be another big help.

|THE ONLY CARDINAL I SAW TODAY WAS THIS FEMALE|
Since replacing our birdseed station Wednesday with a smaller feeder, our bird traffic in and around our front yard is now much diminished. I have mixed feelings about that. I heard a Robin in Bayfield this morning and a couple Robins in our backyard this afternoon that I wasn't able to lay eyes on. I also saw a Red Wing Blackbird in our front yard and shortly after that, I saw a single Turkey Vulture slowing cruising above our tall pine trees. And, as impossible as this sounds I'm sure it was tree frogs I could hear near a neighbor's house. Soooooooooo, with all those signs going on, I'd say Spring is maybe on its way:))
|I WAS GLAD TO SEE THIS MOURNING DOVE ON THE FEEDER|

GROANER'S CORNER:(( A man hasn't been feeling well, so he goes to his doctor for a complete checkup. Afterward, the doctor comes out with the results. "I'm afraid I have some very bad news," the doctor says: "You're dying, and you don't have much time left." "Oh, that's terrible!" says the man: "How long have I got?" "You have 10," the doctor says sadly. "What do you mean, 10?" the man asks: "10 what? Months? Weeks? What?!" "Nine, eight...."
A man went to the doctor and said: “Doctor, I keep having visions of the future.”
“When did these start?”
Those are nice signs of spring I'd like to see!ReplyDelete
Forgot to say yesterday that the photo of the icicles is the best ever!!ReplyDelete
Lost Dutchman State Park, AZ brings back special memories. We've volunteered there and also gave the moonlight hikes. Awesome place! Love your jokes. Where do you find them? All are great!!ReplyDelete
There are many joke sites on the internet where I find my jokes and the same applies to the cartoons. Thanks for being a blog reader and I'm glad you like my Groaner's Corner. I like it too:))Delete
