For a little visual interest, I include a picture of the docks in Whitefish River at Baker Street Park. Even though it's really Baker Avenue, it's named Baker Street Park. The water was a little high that day. This is a good taking-off point for an easy kayak or canoe paddle up to Whitefish Lake and back.
Well, to bed and Peabody. Hope I can cram some more end-of-quarter studies in tomorrow, before and after work. Love you, Mary

The wind was gusting to 40 - 45 mph and kept buffeting her around so she stood against the door and tucked the camera up to her chest. With her heft you would think she could have stood still. She managed for much longer than I figured she would and you can see, and hear how windy it was.
At least you will be able to if I can get this video up on the website. How hard can it be? There is the little movie icon just like on her camera. She wants this to remember all her birds when she is in Minneapolis without them. What a sap.
You will probably be bored before it finishes but I expect FattyKitty will like it.
Speaking of whom, I hear the fattykitty is having a little trouble getting onto his computer. Evidently school makes librarians much more possessive of their laptops. You will have to just stop taking so many naps dear FK. Then you might find some 'desk time'.

So two days later it was snowing in eastern North Dakota. We ought to keep track of the weather and see if this is a regular thing. Sorry to tell you that it's rainy and cold here today...Love, Mary

Happy May Day. When I was younger May Day was when you went around to the neighbors and hung a basket of flowers on their doorknob, rang the doorbell and ran and hid and watched them get flowers.
Even when I was young that was becoming rare. I doubt anyone does it anymore. However here are some flowers for your doorknob.
Eastern Swallowtail. I get one or two a year and always run out to photograph it.
This one was pure luck. I was waiting in the garden for a sphinx moth to come and land on my flower. I was being very still, and the hummer came instead. I actually had the presence of mind to take the photo.
Here is the moth I was waiting for. Cute eh?
