The fair is in town! We looked at the schedule and had to check out the Alaskan Pig races. I also wanted to capture the fireworks display. On a dietary note, I can’t believe I ate a whole Smoked Turkey Leg. Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite

That baby hummingbird just disappeared one day. I did hear a crow right outside the window so we feared the worst. The other day I saw him in our backyard alive & well. Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite

Last night we saw Jon at the Flint Center for a concert with the San Jose Youth Symphony. Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 2. Jon was nice enough to block off a row of seats for us, we felt so special. Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite

It’s that time of the year again. The Egrets are here.   Sadly there were 2 youngsters on the ground. They probably fell out of the nest or got pushed out. I don’t think they’ll last very long. They were shaking like Chihuahuas. Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite
