[Image] I have taken the trouble this year to keep my feeders full and the birds have rewarded me by regularly visiting at the dining room window. I love to watch them while I have my coffee in the morning and they never fail to amuse. I wonder what it is about birds that people like so much, and why some birds are favored over others? I like any bird, but there are lots of people who may love one species and hate another. I suppose it makes as much sense as liking white people better than black, or Asians better than Hispanics, etc. Small variations in appearance and habits supersede the fact of being part of the same species.[Image]

This is my cousin Beth and I with the cousin she found on the internet when searching our family history. He and his wife came here on their way to Canada from Virginia in order to meet us. His resemblance to other male relatives is absolutely astounding. For awhile when I first met him I was so distracted by this that I could hardly concentrate on what he was saying. It was fun to meet them.
I am always amazed when I look at pictures of myself to see how short I am.
