Another bird I haven't seen before. This large bird landed outside this morning. It has a very loud call almost as if it had a megaphone - It has a strange way of constantly jerking its hear about and was just lucky to get these photos this clearly because of that. I have heard this bird away in the distance but never before has it come so close to the house. Its larger and much more solid than a Maggie

I was just handed these two photos of Don and I taken back in 1986 - He was 36 and I was 32 - I have similar photos but not these ones. My heart nearly broke when I looked at the way he was with the doggie and the doggie is so at peace on his lap - he was such a kind man.
And the photo taken in our old house is so much how it was... we were quite young but had accepted things and got on with being a family - Don never showed me any bitterness about his lot in life...he was alive and we had him and thats all that mattered. he could just as easily been killed back in 1982 when he had his accident and the girls would not have remembered their dad - and would have been hugely the worse for life would have been so different and so much less than it has been - and I am eternally grateful for this.
