Dark Clouds, Sunrise, Ducks Breakfast Club and Picnic Table

 Early morning walk in the darkness.
There was lightening in that cloud.
 A very hungry north Duck always meets me.
 South side ducks, there are 6.
Duck Breakfast Club
 Still eating on the north side. Seven ducks total this morning.
 Clouds are beautiful.
 We love walking through nature in the morning with the bird singing. . .
 Sunrise at the end of the walk.
 South side Community picnic table. It will be so nice in the winter.
Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in one’s own sunshine.

Sunrise, Clouds, Duck Breakfast Club and Baby Mockingbirds

 Sun bouncing off clouds
 Pink Clouds
 North Duck came running to meet me and was wolfing down the cracked corn.
 I caught them before they could cross. Busy street today. . .VOTE!
 South Duck Breakfast Club
2 Baby Mockingbirds out of the crib this morning.
The Little Boy and Old Man
Said the little boy, Sometimes I drop my spoon.
Said the little old man, I do too.
The little boy whispered, I wet my pants.
I do too, laughed the old man.
Said the little boy, I often cry.
The old man nodded, So do I.
But worst of all, said the boy, 
it seems Grown-ups don’t pay attention to me.
And he felt the warmth of a wrinkled old hand.
I know what you mean, said the little old man. ~ Shel Silverstein

Sunrise, Clouds, and Duck Breakfast Club

 First light.
 North duck.
South ducks couldn't wait for me to cross. . . .here they come.
 North Duck Breakfast Club. . . a flock of ducks.
 Did we get rained on, just a bit.
 Not enough to turn around and go back.
 Sun bouncing off the clouds.
 There is rain in those clouds.
 Our new Patio is coming along. . . just like north side.

The most wonderful places to be in the world are: In Someone’s thoughts. Someone’s prayers. And Someone’s heart.
