My little friend eating a peanut I tossed to it. There is a pair under my front porch that amuse me when I am sitting outside enjoying the breeze.

Two of my grandsons were over the other night after a day of fishing. They love going through everything I own, being 2 and 3. They especially like my library of field guides, which provide a good assortment of pictures to look at. The oldest came out of my office and handed me a folded piece of paper. "I found this for you in one of your books," he said proudly. I smiled and explained it had been a bookmark. Got to love them!
