Do you find yourself yearning for the simpler, slower way of life from days gone by? Do you prefer listening to birds chirping or an IPOD? Do you find yourself wishing for a time when we moved at a slower pace, when politeness and civility were the norm? Did you love The Waltons, Andy and Aunt Bee, Charlie Brown and Lucy? Join with me then and share your thoughts with others who yearn for gentler times in this fast paced world we live in.

A dedicated Mother
We have two Robins nesting. The one in the picture is in our crabapple tree which looks like it will be bursting into bloom around Mothers Day. Mom has been on her nest for about a week now and her mate stays nearby on the ground, offering protection when necessary. The other nest is over our back door on the porch light. Since we tend to use this door frequently, she's become quite a Nervous Nellie, but I can't blame her. We are being quite generous in letting her stay there without rent, the least she can do is not squawk at us every time we need to come or go. Just fly to the neighbors tree and be patient, we'll be gone in a minute or two!
