SATURDAY MORNING NOT AT THE BIRD FEEDER

Thank you for all the sweet, kind and caring comments you have left regarding Gregg and I having Covid, either here or through email.   Many of you have had it too and have offered excellent advice.  We have both appreciated this very much.  



"I believe that we are here for each other, not against each other.  Everything comes from an understanding that you are a gift in my life - whoever you are, whatever our differences."






Henry John Deutschendorf Jr. (December 31, 1943 – October 12, 1997), known professionally as John Denver, was an American guitarist, singer, composer, actor, humanitarian, and environmentalist.  He is known for popularizing acoustic folk music in the 1970s as part of the ongoing singer-songwriter movement of the mid-to-late 20th century. Denver is widely recognized as a cultural icon of the American West.

  1. I remember him well. I think he died flying an experimental airplane. Is that a Secretary Bird? I find them fascinating. It is good to see a post from you; maybe you are feeling better.

  20. Oh gosh, I take a week or so off from blogging and come back to find out that you two have been sick with Covid. I'm so sorry and hope that this finds you definitely on the mend. I scrolled back and saw that you put up posts you'd already done even though you were so sick. I am in deep admiration of your ability to do that! (Especially because I just came back from not posting for a while for reallyl no good reason at all.) Thank you for all you do!!! Get (and stay) well soon!!
