A young eagle on the new rock near the boat landing, August 20, 2004.
This is a humming bird that flew into the window. It was stunned but still
alive. Holly fed it sugar water every few minutes for about five hours
before it was strong enough to fly away.

I don't know if you knew this about me or not but I am an eager activist
for global warming. Yes, indeed! I am very much for it. Here I sit
with layers of sweaters on and a scarf around my neck contemplating
how beneficial it would be for all of us if it was warmer out. I have decided to
start a protest against removing pollutants from the air. My battle cry
will be "Kill the Ozone and let us northern people have some of the
heat." You may have noticed that it is only southern people who are apposed
to global warming, they very selfishly want to keep all the heat to themselves.
They feel threatened by the idea that the north might be warming up a degree!
Now, I'm not against all cold weather........just cold weather in the
summer! And I think the south should be more understanding about this.

New Year! What did you do New Years Eve? This year has been such
a change for all of us. Since Eric and Honey with their new spouses are in
their own homes making their own traditions, it was just Sarah, Holly, Larry and
I. Pretty quiet around here. We watched a couple of movies. I
finished reading the Bible through in a year. Larry had completed it on
Tuesday. Sarah and Holly got the bright idea that they wanted to
bring in the New Year by sliding down the hill at exactly midnight. So
about 11:45 we dressed up in our snow pants and winter coats and headed up the
hill with only one flashlight. We didn't even need that because the stars
were so bright and there was over half a moon. It was beautiful out. We
could hear the crunch of the snow under our boots and see our breath. It
was -8░. Just about midnight the girls were in position to start their
first adventure of the New Year. Larry and I, having had enough adventure
for one year and not wanting to get a jump on the New Year's adventures, just
walked back down the hill. What a beautiful way to start the New Year.
