There is Mucho Joy in Casa de Major Dad Tonight

Our cardinals have returned. They finally came back post-Ivan for a brief few weeks last summer, only to be driven away by Dennis and Katrina. We’ve been faithfully keeping the feeder full this past 18 months hoping they’d find their way home.
This is the first chirp chirp in the backyard. (Integrity Alert ~ stolen picture…)

I will have a drink.

    Oooooh! Pretty cardinal!
    All I get around here is crows, Canadian geese and seagulls.

    Pretty? Hmmm…Looks more like “Gunny” cardinal to me. My Grandma loved cardinals and every year had a pair somewhere in her yard. I don’t remember them looking that mean though.

    We do get humming birds around here, especially since my neighbor started planting high nectar flowers. If I ever pick up another digital camera, I’ll see if I can get a shot.

    Ah…wasn’t commenting on your integrity at all I hope you know THS, just being my usual wisecracking self.

    If the cardinals stopped coming to CrabAppleLane, I’d have to move. Glad to see they’re back at su casa.

  8. Well, thanks, Rob. Maybe I won’t have to live vicariously through yours now.
    (And I know Dave, as I very much appreciate your ‘wisecracking’ self! I’m so used to Rob’s beautiful pictures that I thought I’d make sure Swillers knew I had nothing to do with this one.)
