Don’t complain about your taxes!

As I’ve been fortunate to be reasonably successful in life, I am looking more and more for ways to give back.  And not being a jerk about the most fundamental way to do that is, literally, the least anybody can do.

Finch egg

One of our zebra finches (Indie and Aussie) laid an egg! Both are female, so no future chicks, and we removed the egg from the feeding box as instructed by the Finch Forum Folk. Isn’t that egg adorable!

Lily wants us to get some fakes for the ladies to care for, and we might give that a try. The forum says it might cause the birds to fight.

The Easter …turkey?

We haven’t seen the neighborhood turkey since last fall, but this morning there were tracks through our yard. A neighbor texted to say that the turkey was at our front door a few minutes ago, but by the time I checked it was across the street.

Aqua Girl

Lily put together her own costume for CVA spirit week Super Hero Day, including a pair of my old boots, which she wore all day. Impressive! I guess warm blood is her other super power. She’s like Elsa… “the cold never bothered her anyway”
