  • Merry Christmas from Wisconsin 2021! You are looking at me standing on an old dock. The river has frozen over and it's very foggy. As thick as pea soup.

    Merry Christmas From Wisconsin To You 2021

    Merry Christmas! Wisconsin is known for its many lakes. It becomes a true winter wonderland when they freeze over. One can not help but to get out on the ice for a little fun! This day just happened to be a lot more fun and rather unusual. We had fog here that was as thick as pea soup which made for some fun photos. Ice fishing is a popular sport here and you’ll see many a fisherman out on those frozen lakes. Soon the frigid waterways will be covered with vehicles and fishing shacks. But, for now, while we wait for the ice to thicken, we’ll just have to go…

  • Happy Thanksgiving Day! You are looking at a photo of an American Bald Eagle. Perched on an old pine tree.

    Happy Thanksgiving Day

    Happy Thanksgiving Day, America! While the turkey may be the bird of choice for this time of the season, I thought the great American Eagle would be a nice inspiration to remind us all to stay strong during these tough times. No matter what you all may be facing or fighting, take time to give thanks to the Lord for all that you have. There’s always something to be thankful for no matter your situation. I wish you all a wonderful day with family and friends. Happy Thanksgiving Day!

    Amos The African Grey Parrot

    In loving memory of Amos, the African Grey Parrot On this day, November 17th, 2020, we lost our little buddy of 26 years.

To most of us, they aren’t just pets, they’re family. If you’ve never had a parrot come through your life, you may be missing out on something special. While they are not meant for everyone, they are the perfect fit for me. Parrots, no matter how big or small, are incredibly smart…
