May we take it that you were feeling better?

Yes, I am, Z. Thanks for asking! I'm still not 100%, but I'm guessing once you pass the 60-year-old mile marker you just never get back to 100%. Still, any day on this side of the sod is a good one.

So glad you're feeling better!

Hee hee! Every time I talk to my dad and ask how he's doing, he says, "I'm still vertical!" Woo hoo, Dad, glad to hear it!

I'm happy to see the return of a winter visitor to the backyard feeder. This is a male Painted Bunting.

Isn't he, though. Only thing is he looks like a fake.

His wife does not have the beautiful colors; she's a dull little thing, with a drab olive breast and gray-brown back and wings.

I only saw them once last winter. I hope this isn't my last sighting for this year.

Last thing that made you smile?

We get Indigo buntings up here, have never seen the Painted. Indigos seem to prefer open farmland.
