Before the World Blows Up

I am going to try to get a post in before 
things get bad in Missouri, and we are drawn to the tv.

Praying for all of those people ... because there are 
two "sides" and the situation has become so 

I wish we could just all get along. 

I think prayers are really going to be needed for the next few days. 

I cleaned the porch up after taking this picture! 

Extremely disappointed in my solution to the water problem at 
the old house... the new fountain was totally dry when we got 
out there today.  I know it wasn't cold enough for the heater to kick on... and we 
had not been there since Friday afternoon.  That tells me most of the water 
evaporated from the open container.   The old fortex is on the deck, and 
it was open... and as you see, I refilled this one.  

I think, though, that I am going to bring it home so I can 
fill it daily here. 

I've thought of another solution for the old house - a heated dog water bowl.  
We'll see.  I may just have to give up for the wild birds out there. 
There ARE plenty of ponds around... but gosh, I got such joy from 
helping the wildings. 

Despite the rain, they have nearly finished the big tree in Basehor.  This is NOT the 
city tree... it's in someone's yard.  I didn't see the cherry picker around, but 
I don't think they are finished yet, either. 

We did not stay out long today... even though it was 38, the wind was blowing hard. 

Too cold for Jes. 

Look whom we saw on the way home!  He is so majestic looking, and I was so lucky there were no other cars on the road. 

You can get an idea of the size of his beak.  Very impressive! 

I saw him in action the other day, but could not stop and capture it. 

I am praying for peace... I hope that we can have it.
