As I sit her basking in the warm sun and wondering if lipstick has a shelf-life it occurred to me I could be cranking out a post. I could also simply sit back and enjoy my birthday … taking in the rays and yes wondering if lipstick goes bad. Since hitting retirement age takes a lot of the excitement of birthdays away (every day is like a birthday ha!) The latter seems like a waste. A post it is!
Today’s featured feathered friend comes to us thanks to two trips to Chain O’ Lakes State Park near Spring Grove IL. The first was back in June 2019 (almost like yesterday) and the other, well it was back in June 2017 (as he looks away sheepishly). There is a reason I added the older shots in – more to that in a bit.
