This was taken by friends from their kitchen window. It’s a lynx that was cutting through their front yard early one morning. How many of you can get up in the morning, look out your window and see nature being nature in the wild and then hop in your car and be having a take-out latte ten minutes later? God I love this state.Continue reading →
Now that you have your wonderful son Joe, you can start to understand the love and joy you brought into your parents’ life and, very especially, my life.
Much love on this special day.
Happy Birthday, Greta.
This is my big brother. He is VERY old today yet, thanks to the loving care he receives from the gorgeous broad standing next to him, he looks amazingly young and healthy. In my head, he’ll always be the kid I shared a room with at 6 North. And that’s a good thing.
Happy Birthday, Phil. Thanks for keeping him well preserved, Joan.
My shift was ending at Bird TLC when the gentleman came in holding something in a towel. He said he’d been working on offloading a freighter’s cargo when he was handed the towel. It contained a very tired, hungry and thirsty scoter, an unintentional hitchhiker to Alaska.
While scoters can be found in some parts of Alaska, they wisely tend to avoid Anchorage in the winter. But there is always one in every crowd who marches to his own drum, right? And the scoter staring up at us from the blanket was definitely that marcher.
The guy who brought him
Just when I thought I couldn’t squeeze another bird into my home, along came Sassy, a delightful Senegal who was losing her foster home because her foster parents were moving out of state.
Sassy is a beautifully feathered, friendly little Senegal who would love to someday have a forever home. If you are interested in companion birds, please remember that there is no need to pay big bucks for a wonderful friend. The Alaska Chapter of the Parrot Education and Adoption Center has many great birds waiting to find their forever home.
