SUNDAY, JULY 18, 2010 11:17 PM, CDT
I got a preliminary call about 10 minutes ago.  I am backup.  There is another person who is tops on the list but if he/she can't go thru with it then they will call me.   
I have talked to another person whose husband had a transplant and this happened to them and they had to go in and prep and wait all day and then it fell through.  They ended up waiting another 6 months for a kidney. I will be called by midnight and told if they want me in to Fargo by 7 a.m..  I am not supposed to take my baby aspirin tonight.  If I don't get called I will email again in the morning.  
Jim has been told (by me) to take his little netbook along so he should be able to keep in touch with you if it actually goes through. 
Excited, a little scared.  Still don't believe it. Love, Nancy

More later!   Here is my site.

Birds on the porch

I have had two nests on the porch this year.  The Barn Swallows that always nest over the library windows have been very noisy lately.  Those baby's fledged yesterday and a good thing too as they could not all fit into the nest anymore.  The above photo is what they looked like yesterday.
This photo was taken on June 26th,  Just 5 days and they grow like weeds.
This year I have a little brown bird nesting in my Christmas wreath (that never gets taken down).  See the little beak there in the dark spot?  I had to stand on a chair and hold the camera above my head to get this close of a shot.  The LBB parent has lots of streaking on the sides of her tummy and a spot in the center of her breast.
I am not sure if it is a Song Sparrow or not.  That is my guess.
This photo was found on Google images it was posted originally by  This photo of a Song Sparrow is just what the parent looked like although I never got a good image of it myself.

Combine those with the hummingbird feeder from Droll Yankee that hangs on my window and you have a birding porch.
The LBB fledged while I was visiting Mary in Billings so I didn't see it.
