Happy Easter

Tomorrow is the beginning of my Easter break.  The boys and I will be traveling.  Hubby will be home.  My dad has been battling the most God awful cough.  They are tentatively saying COPD and Gerd.  He's never smoked a day in his life.  He has an appointment to see a pulmonary specialist, but not until May.  He fell Monday and is in a lot of pain.

My Grandmother fell twice last week and has some other health issues.  She was admitted to the hospital.  The Dr. told her today she would have to go to the rehab facility.  Mom told me there is a chance she may not be able to go home.  We are all sad.
She has lost much of her strength.  She is not happy not being able to go home.

Mom is still working full time and trying to take care of everything (with her sisters, of course! :-)  And not taking care of herself.  She is sick with a cold/bronchitis/yucky stuff.

Please keep them all in your thoughts.

Please enjoy the pictures below.  I took them this week.  They are my Easter gift to you.
Is this just a regular blackbird?

This guy was very active.

 This one is my absolute favorite.  The sparrow on the right is singing.  The sparrow on the left has a mohawk!  Click to enlarge.

Red bellied woodpecker?

I love your photos (again). I am sorry to hear about some people in your family having health problems and falling too. I hope these problems clear up soon. I will be thinking of you and of them.

Holding you and your family up in prayer. The first photo is of a starling. I love blue jays, especially when they harass cats!!!

Have to disagree with the bird in question being a Starling. It is a Common Grackle. I have them here.

Wishing your family the best. I LOVE that pic of your Grandmother with her touch stuck out.

Please try to have a Happy Easter. Y'all will be in my thoughts and prayers. how your Dad writes.
