The storm really took its toll on the little fellow.  Who knows where he was blown in from or perhaps he was a local who didn’t find good shelter.  We spotted him this afternoon looking ragged and exhausted.  Chickadees usually looked prim and proper but...

We had an interesting experience today at Denny’s.  While waiting for our order we watched a server prepare a table for the next customer.  First she cleared off the dishes and then she very carefully wiped the seats.  Following that she then wiped off the...
