4/1/17 April Fool's Day

Happy Birthday Grandma Mabel. You would have been 113 years old. I sure do miss you. G Mabel, Mom, Me, and sister Christine in front. Bottom picture is me and Grandma when I was 14 and she was 60. Just a blast from the past

Been awhile since I wrote. Not much too much to say. Dan has been doing his "mom duties" in Auburn, WA and goes at least twice a month. Its been really wet and rainy so we take Bella out to play in between rain drops. No chance of traveling in the near future. Oh sigh. Soon as the weather gets better Dan will start on the maintenance that needs to be done on our rig. The outside maintenance.

Its much easier to put pictures on here because I don't have much to write about. Of course the squirrels in the orchard love us. They love the feeder I got for them. This is right after I got it. Now it is under cover inside a cardboard box with an opening for them to access the nut box inside. I did this because the crows can get into the opening.

Tucker out cruising

Its trying to be Spring
Dan is cracking Brazil nuts for the squirrels. They can actually crack them with their sharp teeth, but we also wanted to eat some. They are yummy.
We needed something small to fit in the bathroom to hold toilet paper and whatever else. Its hard to find narrow stuff, but I came across this online, ordered it, put it together and we have a neat little storage unit. I put the cats on the side of it.

It snowed one more time and melted away. YUK!

Bella watched it snow, probably had bad thoughts, so she went back to bed. lol lol
Bella is in the lower left corner stalking birds in the bush in between rain drops. The big tree in the picture is leaning pretty good. I think it will eventually fall in a big wind. We tend to not go too close to it when its windy out. Hopefully it won't fall because I know there are at least 3 squirrel nests in it.
One little squirrel helping himself to a smorgasbord of nuts. Peanuts, almonds, Brazil nuts, walnuts, and filberts. We will lay them on the bench for them when we're close by. Can't lay them and leave them because the crows spot them and start "yelling" at all their buddies about free food.

It is hard to see loved ones wasting away. Our Prayers are for Dan's Mom.
Hope that you get at least a few short trips in fairly soon.
Sitting as long as you have your tires might need changing.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It's about time.
