Daily Reminder # 424

The glass on my door is so dirty that the camera resists
focusing... that and red seems to bother it, but it's always
a thrill to me see these guys. They usually don't linger, but
junior was on the porch (see below) so Dad hung out too.

Beautiful weather here today.  Sparrow Killer has broken his truce with me, though I don't know if he made another kill, just that he was back under the deck yesterday afternoon.  Other than that, the deficit "talks" have me in a pretty dark place, so I will just offer gratitude today, I think, and lots of pictures.
