Mama Nature’s little jokes

Posted on April 4, 2016


This week’s Michigan Picture from Babs Young features some attractive mergansers sailing along on Torch Lake.  Nice work, Babs – nice work, Mama Nature!

The ladies are in the middle showing off their hairstyles.  The gentlemen are wearing tuxedos.  The formation is striking.

On Sunday afternoon I looked out my front door, cussed, and called Louan to tell her I was not driving down to Traverse City even to hear really good music at Sleder’s.

I have been consulting the weather reports. I gather the fun will go on all week in one way and another. Fortunately we have laid in an extra supply of excellent treats.

At least it is nice fluffy snow. We are going to go for a walk while the sun lasts, kicking up sparkly clouds all the way.
