It's Derby Day

Our Spring snow storm has come and gone. It left it's mark. There are trees all over Sunshine that are broken. Limbs lay on the ground. Looks like we will have plenty of firewood for next year. One good thing is that we greened up overnight. The moisture soaked into the ground and everything started to grow.

Today is Derby day. The running of the Kentucky Derby is celebrated even in far away Sunshine. One of our neighbors, Jean, is from the Louisville, KY area. She and husband Paul have put together a Derby party for many, many years. The party starts at 2PM Mountain Daylight Time. Jean wants the ladies to wear their finest Derby bonnets. It looks like "I Want Revenge" is the favorite. I always pick a long-shot. This year I think it might be "Join The Dance". We'll see. I'm glad they are not running up here. 2-7 inches of snow are predicted for tonight.

The Hummingbirds have returned. My wife, Janice, is overjoyed.

Ever had a mint julep? Not good.

I love hummingbirds. I have missed you. Gotta go back and read and catch up on what has been going on in my favorite state in the U.S. :-)

I'm glad Spring has greened up around you! Hopefully flowers and warm breezes cross your path as well. I completely missed the Derby! I don't even know who won at this point in time. Hopefully your pick won, because that would be cool~

Enjoy those hummingbirds. There are full of joy and energy.
