Friday - Just Catching Up

I am still healing from the operation and will go Monday to see what the doctor has to say. I have been getting out and as the weather breaks it will be easier. My goal is to be in top fishing and golfing shape by May.

I had my 600Th post and my 30,000Th visitor on the same day. I decided that the special visitor should get the prize mentioned on the post. It took a little time but I got it printed and framed. Betsy from Tennessee from Joyful Reflections was the special visitor. She visits often along with her husband George from Senior Hiker . I guess that doubled their chances. I wrote Betsy and asked her what she wanted so she chose the photo I sent to Jo after visiting her in Texas. It should be there early next week after they get back from their trip. I sent a few surprises along with the picture which I hope she enjoys. I guess she will have to read this and wonder what I meant. I was out walking in the neighborhood and what should I see in one yard. What is a grouping of squirrels called? Squirrels are solitary animals so no group name has been established. I'll just call them a Mess of Squirrels. How many do you see with-in 15 feet of each other? I have enjoyed my time on the blog and am glad so many others also enjoy the visits.

Best wishes for a good recovery. Came here for skywatch...looks like you had some fine skies there this week, from your post below! I seem to be getting some terrific sunsets here lately...and a good shot of the moon too...!

That doesn't surprise me that Betsy won the honor. Did you "tip her off" as to exactly when to "click." If so, I demand an investigation!!! Joking aside: Congratulations.

Fishing Guy, congrats on your 600th post and 30.000 visitors!
Very beautiful the picture of the group of squirrels: to have many of them together is really a rarity.

Tash said...

I'm glad Betsy won. She seems to be a fine person. Maybe she will show us what else you sent.
Congratulations on your 6ooth!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Oh Tom---It's gorgeous. I feel so privileged to have 'won' that gorgeous picture. Can't wait to get it!!!!

We had a great trip--but it's nice to be home.

Hope you get a good report at the doctor's office.

Thank you SO SO SO SO much.
