|Well, I'm feeling better, which is good because Alvin still has his plastic bag, playing with it, rolling on it, and generally making loud crinkly noises with it...
Flicka- any major digging on our property has to be done with a bulldozer, otherwise it would take forever digging up all the rocks! Hope you're doing ok with the ice storm... I remember back when I was in the dorms at college, I think it was 2000 or 2001, we had an ice storm that knocked out power to the school. They ended up sending everyone home since they couldn't keep the dorms warm or feed the students. I had no place to go, so I, along with a few other "homeless" girls in the dorms, huddled together in the common room with candles, games, and fun stories.
Dunlop- Glad Dunlop is feeling better! We could use the dirt from the pond for the rabbit pen, but we would have to separate it from the thousands of rocks we're bound to dig up at the same time. But, that's ok, free dirt! It's really warm here today, just after noon and it's up to 29*.
Jethro- When I just glanced at your main photo, I at first thought "a rabbit?" Then I realized it was baby Jethro from above!
Sanka- That comic is hilarious! What a jerk hitting his poor Golden like that..he's going to wonder why it's afraid of him... I packed up and moved halfway around the world and that didn't get rid of my problems...kinda escalated them since they're harder to take care of from here! My Walmart in Missouri has booklets posting dates for hunting season, they renew them every year and gives exact dates. It's in the sporting goods section on the counter next to the rifles or registers, I don't know if your Walmart carries them or not. Or, you could try the conservation dept., they should have dates posted as well. It can get a bit tricky for non-hunters to find out this info. Be careful, hopefully the hunters in your area are all ethical folks who check to see what they're shooting at before pulling the trigger/releasing the bow.
We have a couple of trees in our yard that have begun to flower. I don't know what either of them are called.

This tree is only about two feet tall and the flowers haven't opened yet, I'll post photos of the flowers after they open.
This plant isn't in our yard, but we're planning on getting one, we just have to find the name of it first! It's a tiny yellowish/white flower on a bush. The flower is *extremely* fragrant, it took us awhile to finally find the source because we were smelling it from quite a distance and the flowers were tiny, so we didn't notice them at first.
