I saw a few snowflakes drifting lazily through the pine trees when I parted our living room curtains this morning.  Curious to see what the new pavement on Bayfield’s main street looked like Pheebs and I, for the second morning in a row, took a short drive into town and back.

Home again, I was disappointed to see a squirrel had attempted a landing on the bird station and had knocked the plastic globe off onto the ground smashing it.  So discouraging.  I again considered dismantling the bird station and being done with it.  Instead, I reluctantly talked myself into setting up another shaky defense system so we’ll see what happens.

IT WAS SO NICE EARLY THIS AFTERNOON TO SEE SUNLIGHT IN OUR FRONT YARD AGAIN

With 35F temps outside it was around 1 p.m. when the sun finally broke through the cloud cover to once again spread joyous light and happiness across the land:))

In our sidebar’s Shout Box Jane asks the question, “what kind of camera would you recommend for on-the-road moving pictures, like barn quilts, wildlife, etc”.  Well, with so many great cameras on the market it is hard for me to recommend any particular one.  I can only mention the cameras I use because I am familiar with them.  Currently, I am using two different types of cameras and each one has its pros and cons.  I use a Nikon D7200 DSLR with a Nikkor 18-300mm telephoto zoom lens and I also use a Nikon Coolpix P900 fixed lens camera with a 24-2000mm Optical zoom lens.  There is a big weight difference between these two cameras.  The D7200 coupled with its separate Nikkor lens is noticeably heavier than the fixed lens CP900.  For me, the weight gives a camera stability but for someone else, the weight could be a definite problem.  So, if I had to make a recommendation between these two camera setups I would recommend the newer, lighter, more versatile, and user-friendly Nikon CP900.  Keep in mind, there are many great cameras on the market, and research to find the one best suited to your own particular needs is important.

GROANER’S CORNER:((   One of the youth soccer coaches didn’t care much for my refereeing and had no problem letting me know it. Fed up, I politely threatened him with a send-off if he didn’t stop.  He calmed down, but an older woman took up where he’d left off. “You’d better control your sideline,” I warned the coach.  The coach turned to the woman and barked, “Knock it off, Mom!”

Little Johnny watched, fascinated, as his mother smoothed cold cream on her face. “Why do you do that, mommy?” he asked.
“To make myself beautiful,” said his mother, who then began removing the cream with a tissue.  “What’s the matter?” asked Little Johnny. “Giving up?”
