A few days ago E was walking by the glass door to the deck and scared a turkey that was eating under our bird feeder. It ran off into the woods behind the house.
Tonight, we were in the dining room and I looked out the window to see a turkey next to the driveway. It walked behind the garage-mahal, and appeared under the bird feeder a few minutes later. It got its snack and then made its way into the woods behind the house again.
I think its a nester, and we're going to have turkey babies!

Just before my birthday (Feb 25), E got himself a new car. It was time. His old faithful Maxima was dieing a quick death. He sold the Maxima, and remembered (this time) to take out his after-market stereo. It turned out that his new Subaru has a pretty good stereo in it. So, what to do with the old one? Give it to me for a birthday present! Well, OK, the present was really that he'd install it for me. Which he did. Today. What can I say, my honey's a procrastinator, and I know it! So, woo hoo for birthday tunes!
We had a great time in the Bahamas! We went to the beach, SCUBA diving 3 days, horse back riding along the beach, and had fun playing Backgammon with our friends that were there with us.

This morning I got up, and stumbled down stairs to feed the animals and start some coffee. As I was leaning over to feed the fish, I looked out the window and saw 2 white-tailed deer 10 feet away on the lawn. It was a doe and yearling faun, stopping to have some yummy acorns and flower buds from our lawn and gardens. These two are probably part of the herd, consisting of 2 does (Momma and Boxy) and twin fauns (Cherry and Arrow), that were visiting us daily last autumn. So then, where are the other doe and faun?
