Kestrel on Eagle's Wing
It was pouring rain in Valley Forge yesterday as I was driving along the interline road within the park. There atop the giant revolutionary statue of two Eagles was the little kestrel perched with perfect symmetry with the Eagle's wing. Oh such a thrill!!

Fawn in the Rain
It was pouring today when I got to the woods at Pawling's Farm in Valley Forge. I couldn't resist the urge to find something to photograph. And there in the woods was a fawn who had already spotted me. As the rain came pouring down, he posed for his picture. Click fawn to see those rain drops....

Tom, Knight, Ann and a Horse and Rider
Tom and I took a little road trip to visit his cousins Knight and Ann Kiplinger at their beautiful farm in Poolesville, Maryland. We could not have had a better time. Here are a few photos including a tree in the back yard, a horse and rider, and the cousins in front of their house at Montevideo.

300 West Elm Street
Today was closing day for a new condo in Conshohocken. I needed a place to put all of my stored furniture after leaving Glenmary Lane and Yumiko and Jessi needed a good place to live while they are finishing school. So..... we went ahead and did it! Here I am with Tom and our great real estate agent Tom Moretti after signing all the papers. Oh life, another new chapter begins.
