Today was just the latest in a string of way-to-cold-for-this-time-of-year-in-North-Carolina days. The perfect day to be amazed by and laugh at the antics of our little pet, Daytona. For the third year in a row, Daytona is building a nest on our fireplace mantle behind our neice's photo. In the past, his building materials have been dead plant material that he yanks off our houseplants, pieces of yarn that he yanks out of an afghan, and hair that he yanks out of my head. But today his carpentry skills took on a whole new dimension - TISSUES! After we watched him fly up there (with much difficulty) carrying a whole tissue, we took pity on him and spread tissue pieces all over the place. And he spent all afternoon transporting them around. Not all of them made it to his nest. He seemed just as happy to fly around with them.

I came across your blog using the random "next blog" feature. I just had to tell you that your pictures of Daytona nesting on your mantle are just TOO cute! I loved his web page also. So if you were wondering if anyone ever reads your blog, the answer is yes!
