Backyard Visitor

I looked out of the kitchen window the other day and saw this guy booking across our backyard. I'll tell you more of the story tomorrow.

Happy Mothers' Day

"A mother is the truest friend we have,
when trials, heavy and sudden,
fall upon us . . .

when adversity takes the
place of prosperity . . .

when friends who rejoice with us
in our sunshine,

desert us when troubles thicken
around us . . .
still will she cling to us,
and endeavor by her kind precepts
and counsels,
to dissipate the clouds
of darkness,
and cause peace
to return to our hearts."

- Washington Irving

Happy Mothers Day!

Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

Cinco de mayo (May 5) is the celebration of the Mexican Army's defeat of the French during the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. Cinco de mayo does NOT celebrate Mexican Independence Day (That date is September 16.), and it is actually more regionally celebrated in Mexico (mostly in the state of Puebla). As a celebration of Mexican heritage, it is very popular in the United States.

Feliz dia, amigos!

Skyline from the Market

The Farmers' Market sits in the shadow of downtown Nashville. In the middle of the photo, you can see the state capitol, and to the left, you see AT&T Tower, more commonly called "The Batman Building" because of its resemblance to the caped crusader.

National Pet Week

May 3-9 is National Pet Week. Decker (L) and Kasey are hoping that means they get a few extra treats. Of course, since they're spoiled and get treats all the time, I don't think they'll be getting too many extras. ;-)

At The Art Show

My son, Jason, recently participated in a juried art show. His artwork is behind him and his girlfriend, Michelle. I have no idea what the painting is. Sorry.
