    1. Thank you dear Mary, they could hear the geese flying over. If it had been the sound of food in the dog dish you would have been looking at an empty space in the living room! πŸ˜ŽπŸ’¨πŸ’¨


  1. It’s so nice to have you back again, Xenia! I’ve been away from blogging too what with preparing for our winter migration and arriving in tropical climes at last. We didn’t honk, but we did raise our voices a bit along the way!

  2. SMiLes.. my FriEnd Xenia.. for with two years
    of never ending SPRinG the warm
    Glow of Home
    can and
    just a little bit
    for the appreciation
    of the technology that
    brings the comfort of heat
    and of course the greatest human
    technology innate as loving hugs
    of even
    in Polar
    as Holding
    ways of Love
    toGeTHeR as LiGHT
    the fire within that does
    spell toGeTHeR aGaiN.. so.. i’m
    feeling and sensing now that amazingly
    in Interstate Fair Days the norm of 40 degrees
    F is returned to North Florida Panhandle morning
    clear blue
    air to breathe..
    perHaps i am finally
    again sharing some of your
    Scotland Highland invigoration breeze
    for it’s true big heads retain heat as my head
    is not
    for this
    place but true
    i do my best
    to adapt
    a big head
    in heat respite
    now in Cold Front
    Heaven Hugs of Love..:)
