This morning
my 'Senior Associate', my mentor, my Tutu passed away.

Over the past two years, BOB taught me
 the skills I needed
to carry on with Tom's blog.

I'm young and inexperienced but
I promise to give it my very best...
for BOB.

It's been a long day.

Junior is very excited about Tom's
new birdfeeder in Margaret's east garden.
It is built of steel and features several
 re-cycled pieces from feeders
Tom has previously built for our wild birds.
 The base is 4x4 feet and about 3 feet tall.
This is for the quail.
The structure stands about 8 feet tall.
The hummingbird, finch and perching birdfeeders 
are mounted on an axel and
 the entire unit spins in the wind.
It is making Junior's head spin, too.
 The quail found their new birdfeeder
within an hour of its installation
yesterday but they flew away when Junior walked by.
This past week, Junior fell asleep on my head.
He is so goofy.
I haven't been feeling well these past few days
but this morning I wandered outside to
catch the warm morning sun.
It felt so good!
Margaret followed me and took my picture.

Live each day as though it may be your last.
Enjoy the closeness of a favorite buddy.
Soak up the sunshine and
the love of your friends and family.
