Hi All,

Remember when I posted about my daughter's upcoming wedding? I am relieved and happy to report it is done and went well. Actually, even if it hadn't gone well, we'd be really happy that it's done! :lol:

Even the weather cooperated and that's saying something considering it has been the 2nd wettest June in history and just missed tying for first place by 1/10th of an inch!

The bride was beautiful, the groom obviously in love with her.

Mama is a happy woman!

Big hugs and a piece of wedding cake for everyone.

Hi Jeannie,

I'm thrilled for you that the wedding went well, and that it's all over, too. What a huge happiness and relief, eh?

I'm sending a belated virtual toast to the bride and groom: May their love outlast their teeth and hair. If they can smile at the thought of that, they will surely do right fine!
Warm Hugs,

Congratulations to all of you, Jeannie!

I'm sure she was/is a beautiful bride and I wish them every happiness...along with her family!

(Just want to share something "cute"...my hubby STILL calls me his bride...after 23 years together)!

May your daughter's hubby and she share the same!
Special Hugs,

Thanks for all the well wishes! I'll have the kids read them when they get back from their honeymoon in a couple of days.

This mother-in-law lark is OK. I really like my new son-in-law (and my 'old' daughter-in-law too). It's a little like being a grandparent - all the fun and not too much of the responsibility.

Susie, my husband calls me his "wee wifey!" Ya gotta love 'em!

Oh, I love the extended family, too. I tend to think of the in-laws as 'realies' -- in fact, I think of the kid, the husband and/or wife and the couple together as separate entities.

Jeannie, I love your new avatar. Tell us about your own personal wildlife preserve.
Warm wishes,
Jefa

Ah, the Wildlife Sanctuary~ That's us, Jefa. You've got us pegged.

The avatar is a young kestrel chick - also known as a sparrowhawk. I snapped that photo about a day or two before it soloed. It seemed a bit confused over who was supposed to be feeding it and always came out to see if I was carrying a nice yummy bit of mouse or vole.

I'm told the kestrel is the smallest native American hawk and that must be so. The bird box, which is mounted on our chimney, was built for small woodpeckers! Mama hatched out 3 chicks which have flown the nest but not the neighborhood. Hmmm, that sounds like my offspring as well!

We're seeing a real resurgence of raptors and it's not uncommon to see Golden Eagles, red-tailed hawks, the kestrels, and even the odd Bald Eagle. That's not out in the wild, it's in a suburban area, albeit one graced by a lot of greenbelts. About 3 miles from the house, at a series of gravel quarries-turned-lakes, we see egrets, herons, comorants, geese, ducks, PELICANS!, swans~ (Dear me, at my advanced age I've finally started a 'life list' of bird species!)

The birds are a lot of fun to watch, especially the ones that hang out around the house. Because we spend a lot of time outside, they've gotten used to us and don't immediately fly off. My current favorites are this year's grackles and starlings. They act exactly like a gang of giddy teenagers: noisy, frequently squabbling, flying chase games, eating everything they can get in their beaks!

What else do we have? Foxes are very common, coyotes, racoons, squirrels, prairie dogs, some rabbits (dinner for everything else~), some snakes (not my favorites) and frogs and toads. We're just a bit too far east of the mountains to have bears or elk, though.

Big hugs and a nice bowl of bird seed,

Jeannie
