The neighbor's guinea hens 
were out the other morning.
There used to be 4 of them, but
 I don't know what happened 
to her.  They can sure make a
racket, but I love them anyway.
They usually circle the house,
pecking away at the bugs
 and hollering now and then.

AND this may be our new backyard!
We are in the process of buying
a house and hopefully we will know
for sure in the next 2 weeks.
I didn't want to say anything until
we were closer to the end.  We 
had a major disappointment in 
March on another place that we
both really loved.   Hopefully
this house is meant to be!
I hope to share more pictures
as we go along.  The house needs
a lot of work, but it will be fun
to see the transformation.
The significance of life
is life itself.

Happy May Day!

Our greatest glory
 is not in never failing,
but in rising up
 every time we fail.
