Titmouse Bandit

The crazy titmice are trying to steal Poke's fur to make nests. They do this over and over again, and sometimes Poke doesn't even realize it! Poke is an 18-year-old, fat, mean-spirited cat. One of our granddaughters calls him the "hell cat" because we've always called him the "Cat from Hell". He is like a huge rag mop, who mostly looks sort of dead.

This is looking east from our patio door out toward our back you can see from the bird feeders, we really encourage the birds.

BTW, we have had humming birds for the best part of a week.

Double J Hacienda and Art Ranch is going again!

The historic Double J Hacienda & Art Ranch is a place where art and nature rendezvous with inspiration and soul.

Worth, the Art Ranch overlooks the Brazos (de Dios) River and the Palo Pinto Mountains outside Mineral Wells. This unique creative outpost hosts events, retreats, and workshops in art, music and well being. It is a modern-day Chautauqua, a place to gather for rejuvenation of body, mind, and spirit.

The Call from Prince Caspian by Regina Spektor

Beautiful movie for Lent! This song was the farewell scene of the movie, but the you tube that has clips from throughout the movie has not been allowed to be embedded. However, Regina Spektor's voice and the message of the song is wonderful.

The message of the book by C. S. Lewis and the movie, which kept to the book fairly well, challenges our faith...we must believe without seeing. We must, we must, we must have faith.

Ah, I just found one with more of the clips:
