Here's a short video from our recent trip to The Wilds, where we re-enacted a memorable moment in the life of daughter Phoebe Linnea, from one of her very first birding trips. This commemorates her first accurate mammal ID call using a spotting scope. Now she's all growed up! Man, time surely flies...

"The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity, and some scarce see Nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, Nature is Imagination itself. (William Blake, 1799, The Letters)

"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in where nature may heal and cheer and give strength to the body and soul." (John Muir)

Bill, your nature blog is quite inspirational and fascinating. I look forward to following you!

Due to dial up I can't see the video, well 1 frame per hour doesn't count.
In no time she'll be in college, engaged, married and, congrats, your a grandpa.

Sit down dude. The shock will pass.

Connie: We wrote a special program so the alien only shows up in my scope when aliens visit the blog. Do you have something you'd like to tell us? Live long and prosper!

Okay, sweet story...but I have to say the best part of that little video was the long, drawn out screetch of the coil, as you leaned back on your ride! While I didn't 'see' you get flung into tomorrow night...I heard the quiet night that was left when you did.

You are too funny...

Merry Christmas to you and yours!!!
Beverly (who sees no aliens here)
