~ Sunshine! ~ Kitties and Puppies ~ Clams

Can you believe it... it's the END of March already!!!!! Time is just going by too fast!
Good 45º foggy morning.
OMG, yesterday it was 73º. It's been months and months since we saw that temp and the SUN WAS OUT!!! I couldn't believe it, I was actually perspiring!
The turkeys were out and happy it was sunny and not pouring. Harley Dude, also happy, to be out on the porch and enjoying the weather...
Yesterday afternoon Maggie and I went to PJ and Dave's to open their electric gate and turn it off so it stays open. They came home with their trailer and it's easier if the gate is open since if he pulled up to the gate his trailer would still be out in the road. We get a lot of afternoon traffic and it's only 2 lanes. Anyway, they are home safe and sound.
I made earrings this afternoon for 'prizes' to give at our 1+1 JCRW Luncheon this Saturday. Patty, PatC, and Claire will be going with me. Free lunch for them. Should be fun. We were also asked to decorate a hat for the 'hat contest'. You will see mine Sunday.
Can't give it away yet!
The geese showed up about 5pm and I took them out a treat...
Such a gentleman, he waits while wifie-poo eats!
This was sent to me by Patrick up in Washington. You have got to see this kitten. She is phenomenal.
And if kitties aren't your thing, then look at this little pooch, 'Tucker', who plays the piano and sings!
