Trying to catch up on everyone's news.
Great photos roses, myrosiedog, and Unk! I wish we had more birds around, but with all the neighborhood cats, I'm not surprised.
Gracie, Mr. Tootles, and Lexi, all missed me very much while I was away last weekend. But they treated Grampa really, really, well. They all have spring fever and must, must, must go outside and see what is happening at least a couple of times a day; just in case they miss out on something. The snow is melting, the squirrels are playing around everywhere, and grass is showing up in between the snowbanks.
Lexi was very brave and walked out into the snow. It was too cold on her itty bitty toes and she didn't like it very much. I hold her in a blanket because she tends to shiver a bit. I don't know if it's because she's cold, excited, or both. But she's definitely got her feral insticts about her. Hears and smells things I don't even know are out there. I'm sure Lexi find a ladybug scratching it's leg if it were out there!
Mr. Tootles has taken to his regular perimeter walkabouts, wherever the snow has melted, and routinely checks the front gate for intruders; or personal deliveries as it may be.
Gracie loves to sit on her perch in the sunshine and now treads carefully to the back 40 where she can find a few blades of partially-green grass to munch.
Ah, spring is here! And dirty, wet, muddy paws abound!
