New eyes today!

Had my second cataract done this morning and in a couple of weeks I should be able to see 20/20 without glasses ever again. A miracle in my book. Hope it helps me to read those putts better now.

Building another nest!

Off to get my second eye done in the morning. The most amazing thing happened to me yesterday. While we were attending the dinner following the golf game, I pulled the live scoring up on my phone and was able to read the scores hole by hole. Without glasses. What will it be like with the second one done? I know, a pain in the butt to some!

My Knight in shining armor !

What a victory Bubba had today! It was a thrilling Masters and I cannot be happier with the win Bubba had. Jordan Spieth was an amazing young man and a man of distinction when he cheered Bubba on the final hole. We will see him for some years to come I'm sure. But, today was Bubba's day and well deserved. One of the best tournaments of the season but I must say that I missed Tiger.
David and I played in the Patriots Day tournament here at the club and had our minor victories. That's golf!

Off we go to get the twigs!

On his way to get twigs for the nest. So amazing! Watching " The Masters", one of the best golf tournaments of the season. Missing Tiger, but some happy with Bubba one of my favorites. Watching the Three Legends prior to the start of the Masters, was also amazing. These three men have set some records and in my mind have made the game what it is today. Go Bubba!

Mating Season at "The Rookery"!

Birds do it, bees do it; even educated fleas do it Let's do it, let's fall in love.

Couldn't resist that folks. Thought this was a good photograph and hope you don't find it offensive. What was interesting about the whole adventure was catching the two males fighting for the female, the victor goes off to a tree where I got photos of him picking twigs out of a tree, taking them back to the female and then mating with her.

Spring at the Venice Bird Rookery!

David and I stopped at the Venice Bird Rookery on our way home from Orlando. What a wonderful place to find birds hanging around. Apparently it's spring for them and we witnessed it first hand. These two great blue herons on the left are fighting for the lady on the right. One wins, we caught the winner going off for twigs for the nest and then coming back and mating with her. Lots of young birds in nests with plenty more coming. The amazing thing to see was the gator hanging below all the branches waiting the the eggs or young to drop. Want to go back here at sunset some day soon.

Seven Countries in two days!

Last day at Disney-imp.jpg

Epcot sure offers you a quick and nice view of so many countries. Spent a half hour at the Butterfly Garden today as well. Wolfgang had no ahi tuna last night and must say we were some disappointed. Tonight is Italian but going to downtown Disney is a chore. I don't know when I've seen so many people. A test of ones legs maneuvering around to get to where you want to go. But, I must go !
