Marty Robbins sings our story so well, with a few exceptions!

Our theme song! 🙂

I Heard the Bluebirds Sing

I met a girl down in the hills that gave my lonely heart a thrill
Her beauty seemed just like a breath of spring
And when I looked into her eyes I thought it blue as a summer skies
When I held her hand in mine I heard the bluebirds singThey sang of wondering (wondering if he loves her)
Will she marry (marry if he asks her)
Will her heart be (heart be true for him for) then and evermore
And when she’s lonely (lonely is he near her)
When there’s sadness (sadness will her cheer her)
Will they always (always be together) until the day they partI courted her for months on end until she promised we would wed
We planned on being married in the spring
All through the long cold winter months it seemed that spring would never come
And every gloomy winterday I heard the bluebirds singThey sang of waiting (waiting for the flowers)
And of counting (counting every hour)
Till the bluebirds (bluebirds chirps his welcome) to the world each morn
And while we’re waiting (waiting for the sunshine)
We keep hating (hating every storm cloud)
That has gathered (gathered o’er the mountains) to keep us for apartAnd when at last spring touched the earth we were married in the church
Our wedding seems just like a dream come true
Though many years have come and gone our love is still as true and strong
As when I found her long ago and still the bluebirds singThey sang of loving (loving every hour)
That I’m married (married to my flower)
And we’re happy (happy ever after) as since the day we’ve met
And though we’re older (older love is sweeter)
We grow fonder (fonder of each other)
We’ll be sweethearts (sweethearts close together) until the end of time Songwriters: HOD PHARISI Heard the Bluebirds Sing lyrics © Peer International Corporation, Quality Music PUB.LTD.

Palm Warbler

I was privileged to see a Palm Wrbler in Ohio, at Magee Marsh, and then four days later, I also saw this bird in Medina, New York, at the Ringneck Marsh, Iroquois Wildlife Nature Preserve.

Mother Robin

Chicken House

Black-hooded Oriole

This photo taken with the Nikon P1000 at 467 mm. I did edit it with the “dehaze” slider in Lightroom and cropped it, as well.

Black-rumped Flameback

Shot with the Nikon P1000, I had loaned for the day. This was at 135 mm for not exhausting the 4.3 to 539 mm megazoom lens.

Am I Next? Chicken Fry?

Is Spring Here?

I saw a flash of orange, and sure enough, there were two robins in my back yard on January 6!!

My first Christmas morning taxi customer, as we were passing this eagle, wondered if I had ever seen it! I said no, pressed the red button for my hazard lights, and backed down the road, till I could get a good view of the bald eagle. I got out and grabbed a quick shot before going down the road. A nice gift by a thoughtful passenger, and we still arrived at our first destination two minutes ahead of schedule! In the coming year, let’s be alert to times when we can give gifts to others, even in simple ways, such as pointing out this regal bird to an avid bird photographer! Happy Holidays
