FEBRUARY

HAS ARRIVED!

Bear and I are both staying healthy and warm.  Sure burning a lot of wood, but we'll make it through the winter.  We thank Kaintuck Dick and Jane, Josh, and Tim for the holiday presents.  Bear and I have really enjoyed the pygmy nuthatches at our feeders...the most we've ever seen in our yard...

Here's what happens when we cut down too many trees...

-SEEKIN' THE WILDS-

Wild stuff friends have sent us...

Tim sent us more pronghorn antelope pics up on his ranch land...

'Unlikely best friends' pic sent to us by Denali41 (cacher Steve)...

We were excited to see a canyon wren in our yard January 15.  They're resident birds up here, but we hear and see them across the river.

Buddy Ray took this pic of buddy Gib...cool dude.  Gib is a member of the FBI (Full Blooded Indian) and was born on the Navajo Nation rez in New Mexico.  He speaks Navajo, Apache, Zuni, English and works at Colorado State University while working towards his college degree.  He's wearing a beanie with long black braids his 97 year old grandma knitted for him...

***LEARNING MOMENT***

We learned some new stuff about the Super Bowl.  More than 100 million folk worldwide watch the Super Bowl every year making it the 2nd most watched sporting event in the world.

 

What is #1?

 

HAVE FUN!

***LAST LEARNING MOMENT***

***None of those famous rock bands, including Skynyrd, ever had a #1 hit single song.***

 

We congratulate woodworkin' LOU and Denver photo-dude DAVE!
