Hi Miss C If you look closely you'll see a little mail truck jeep--that's Aunt T! Oops she zipped on by, and is already out of sight. She disappeared in a flash into the mountains of North Carolina with a zillion packages! The mail must go through and sometimes it gets a little late into the night...but check out the Christmas lights along her route.
The Canadian Pacific stopped. The doors to one of the boxcars opened, and the band inside sang Christmas Carols. It was festive and cold, and it was a great way to say Merry Christmas as the train traveled across the northern tier promoting the local food shelf.
At the Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch there are cute little piggies who like to play even in the rain - especially in the rain! Squishy slimey piggy mud! And afterwards the squishy slimey pumpkin carving fun!
Hi Miss C! Happy Birthday at your house. This birthday greeting is the best! My friend Lillian, who also has a birthday this week, is 95 years old and she gave me a birthday card like this a long time ago.

Hi Miss C, The bluebirds are back, and "feathering the nest" in the bluebird house that Grandpa built. Soon they will be laying eggs, and feeding their young- fresh worms and bugs! Our neighbor has 50 bluebird houses in his yard. Sometimes the bluebirds stand on the roofs. I wonder if they're enjoying the view or just taking a rest. (I'll post a photo of them soon.)
Clover is pedaling down the lane where lakes, woodlands and prairie meet. She's looking for the many signs of spring. The wild flowers are in bloom and a pair of geese are nesting in the rushes. The swans are migrating, and stop to swim. A muskrat waddles across the road, and the frog pond is alive with the sound of many croaks!
The colors of spring are woven into purses on a small hand held loom with an intersting button added.
FLOWER SEEDS: Morning glories bloom in the morning. Flour o'clocks bloom in the afternoon. Zinnas bloom all day! And moon flowers bloom towards evening-perhaps they would do well in overcast climates. A pinwheel on windy days!
Hi Miss C! What a sweet little guy --happy harp seal that you have made. I thought it would be great to use your illustration on a tee shirt, and you said, it will hang in the hall in your school until you graduate. It's worth the wait!
