Perfect Timing

When was the last time you quit because you were frustrated? When was the last time someone asked you for help, only to abandon the project? When was the last time you felt like you were the only one doing all the work all the time?

You may recall that I wrote about my sister’s son, Zach, leaving for boot camp last summer. Well, the next big event on his agenda is The Crucible.

Behind the dark sleep-deprived eyes of these young Marines one can see continue here

Are. You. Kidding. Me?

Seriously, I know squirrels will find seeds, and I know birdfeeders are a great place to find them; but this birdfeeder — I thought for sure this seed cage was out of reach! Honestly, look where it is hanging!
