Mom at the Lake
Here's my mom in her native environment -- standing on the dock watching birds. She loves keeping an eye on the ducks, cormorants, anhingas, herons and other waterbirds out on the lake. The other day there were ducks on the water and she asked me what kind they were -- as if I would know. I said, "Black speck ducks." Because that's all I could see -- black specks on the water.
My brother and his family arrived last night for a weekend visit. My little niece is standing next to me at the moment with a sheet over her head, loudly proclaiming, "I'm a wizard!"
Ah, family life.
We're all going to my dad's house this afternoon for a visit.
