Geese Ducks Turkeys Squirrels Eagles ~ Empanadas

Good 29ยบ foggy morning.
Yesterday was one of those weird weather days..
It snowed first of all, then most all of it melted.
The sun came out. Then the sun would go away
and we'd have one terrific hail storm. Then the
sun was back out again. Red light, green light!!
Watching the eagles yesterday. The daddy was eating what looks like trout and a muskrat or gray squirrel....
And then he was feeding the babies......

Too cute!!!
This morning it looks as though they had rain in Iowa,
raindrops on the camera lens...
Yesterday morning I was eating an artichoke for
breakfast (Yes, Patty, 'breakfast'! LOL) and Harley
decided he wanted some. Brat. He jumped up on my
desk and he licked the mayonnaise! Sigh...
He likes mayonnaise and olive oil and salad dressings....
It does look like these fellas are flirting hard with
the young girls! Showoffs! Doesn't appear the
'ladies' were impressed!
Here's a shot... a goose, a turkey, and a squirrel
all vying for the snacks...
 and Mr. Squirrel was back in the bucket...
Cleaned out shelves in the closet, stuff ready to go to Goodwill if anyone up here isn't interested in the stuff. I sent an email with pictures. Got a couple replys. Feels good to organize!
