Good Monday morning--even if it is raining here. Hot oat meal with blueberries (and coffee, of course) got me off to a great start. I was hoping to go golfing this PM. Looks problematic. Hope all is well with everyone and your week will be a good one.

Yes, 13+ is getting up there for a cat. 

I spent $20 for one heartworm pill for Dot yesterday. Whew! I had neglected that important pill on previous dogs, and they died early and sadly. I learned my lesson.

Mindy, glad to hear Dale is okay (from Hang with Friends).

Off to the "woodchopper's ball" today (chainsaw work).

It was a good day yesterday. "Champ" and I had fun together. His mother (my daughter) didn't like my choice of lunch--a chicken sandwich at Burger King (she called it "gross"). But, as I told her, "somebody has to introduce him to the real world!". 

Joan, you are exactly right. The Preserve is an island. My house is directly north across the bean field.

Drinking coffee here and hope everyone is doing well. I hope you all have a wonderful day.

Randy, I just looked up Google Earth the Eunice H. Bryan Nature Preserve, scrolling in and out. My goodness, a lot of land has been turned into farmland. Just like the Pacific Northwest. What a treasure you have with those ancient trees. 

Laura's forest is one of several small plots that remain of the old forest, and it has been cut at least two times. They have a lot of scrub trees that they thinned out to make a healthier forest and to reduce forest fire threats. There are some ancient tree stumps that the kids dance on. We use old tree stumps to drum because the hollow stumps makes different sounds from each other.

Randy, A very happy day with your five year old in to weeks grandson! No greater pleasure I can think of. What do you name him? 

Your plans sound just like what a young grandson would like to do with a grandfather.

Randall - have a great time with your grandson!

Hello and good Monday morning! Today is "grandson day". My "Champ" (age 5 in 2 weeks) and I are spending the day together. We're visiting relatives, grocery shopping, library, eating lunch out, riding a golf cart for 9 holes, having an ice cream, and enjoying each other's company on a gorgeous day. His real name is Jensen, but I never (ever) call him that. Why not? Mostly, because he's named after my ex-wife (nee Jensen). That really bothers me. Secondly, that's my own son's middle name. One "Jensen" is enough. He doesn't understand why I don't use his name yet. He does know I love him.

Joan and Mindy, I consider the "preserve" my own. It's really about a half mile away, across an 80 acre corn/bean field. But hardly anybody knows about it or walk the trails. In my 35 years of visiting it (google Bryan Nature Preserve), I've seen less than a dozen people in it, mostly illegal mushroom hunters. The woods has magnificent stands of oaks and cottonwoods, etc. Mammoth trees. Spring and autumn are the best seasons to walk through.
