On a different note, the boys were to come today and help us change the ceiling tile. Jordan called about 11am and said they couldn't come because Mom and Dad needed Brandon to help clean up a flood in the basement. Apparently the toilet had overflowed and water was everywhere because no one noticed it at first. So instead, we took Dakota to the dog park where he had some fun with his buddies and then we had a relaxing day. Tomorrow, it's back to work.

This afternoon I was out on the side porch and heard an unusual noise. I turned my head toward the big maple at the end of our driveway and this is what I saw. I'm not sure what kind of bird it is, but am suspecting it's a woodpecker of some sort. I'm thinking maybe a juvenile red-headed woodpecker, but I could be wrong. I've written to my friend Ruth to ask her if she can identify it. Hopefully she can. If anyone knows, I'm most interested in knowing. I love birds visiting our property and this one is no exception. During the long winter months, we have the odd cardinal pair or blue jays that come to visit. They are such a delight to watch, especially when the blue jays and squirrels get into a row.
