More ramblings

It has been almost 1 year since I last wrote in my blog. It isn't because I don't have the time, but it is mostly due to the fact that I haven't taken the time to write. I enjoy reading my son Chip's blog as well as those of some of my grand daughter's. last week when I was talking to Chip he wanted to know when I was going to write some more. So Chip this is for you. We are glad that winter is over and that spring is putting its new face upon the earth. we enjoy seeing the birds flock to our feeders, especially the finches. It is fun to see the male goldfinches chang from their dull winter coat to the shiny golden spring feathers. They don't loose all of their winter feathers at the same time, but every week we have noticed the change in their color. The trees are getting their new leaves and I noticed today that the lawn is starting to show some green. I think that the inch of rain that we had last night had something to do with that. I have my tomato plants ordered and am planning to plant potatoes this week, weather permitting. Our German shepard puppy is growing by leaps and bounds. She is 4 months old now and loves to be outdoors. I guess that I am about rambled out for tonight. so will sign off by wishing all read this the very best of times and may God and his angels watch over everyone. Gramps
