Today’s sunny and bright weather was infectious. When we did our weekly shopping I got carried away at the seed display.

No, not the name of a punk rock band. We spotted this stuff on our midday walk here at home on a sunny day. More of the fungus among us. Always fascinating.

As the world watches the conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter this evening, we on the Orchard Compound celebrate another event. On this date long ago in the U.S. Territory of Alaska a child was born. On the darkest day of the year she brought a light into this world that still shines and fills our hearts with joy. Happy birthday Joyce Carol. We’ve been together for more than 45 years. Here’s to many more.
