It’s been just over a month since my younger sister Sue passed away. There were many wonderful things about my sister, but the one I’d like to share is what a excellent photographer she was. If you could meet her on the street today, she would probably have her camera with her.
One of her favorite subjects (aside from her son Logan) were animals. Her cats, the backyard wildlife, or animals at the zoo. One of my fondest memories of her was when the family came to visit (I’m in Florida, the family in Connecticut). Of course we went to the zoo. Watching her and her son circle the cage looking for the best shot brings a smile to my face now as it did then. I remember thinking, “she’s taught him well.”
I hope Logan takes up photography and keeps her camera. I also hope he realizes just how special that camera is….
This is our second bunch of baby chicks. Our first group, unfortunately, became bear snacks. These babies came in two groups, the first nine, six Turkens and three Barred Rocks, and the second, two and a half weeks laters, four more, two Golden Lakenvelders and two Blue Wyandottes.
Notice the bare necks of the Turkens. They are also known as Naked Necks. Although they resemble turkeys, hence the name Turkens, they are chickens.
Last month, the Northwest Florida Arts Association sadly closed it’s doors. The final gallery show reception had a wonderfully large turnout and the artwork was amazing. Surprisingly, I won the first place award!
