babies everywhere

Good morning.
here's a couple of pics I took yesterday during our walk around our community....
Mommy and daddy and 8 babies.
They crossed the road from the pond to the golf course. Don't know where they think they were going. But mom and dad stopped and turned toward me as I tried to get close enough for a decent pic.
So babies all over the place. Rabbits, geese, and I've been told quail. Although I haven't seen any baby quail yet. So a lot of 'life' out here in the desert. We set some chairs out by our front door and sidewalk several weeks ago, partly to keep an eye on a neighbors house while they were away, and now, we kind of like sitting out there once and a while for a little change of scenery. We were sitting out there yesterday afternoon and our neighbor Obbie joined us. Sat for a couple of hours chatting.
Craig went in to the orthopedic office for a pre-op visit before his surgery on the 26th. They explained in more detail than he wanted to know exactly what they were going to do to his finger. They will make a zig zag cut from the palm to the tip. Then they will have to scrape the nodules off the inside of the skin. The whole thing should take about an hour and a half. Sounds intense for one little finger. Then he'll wear a brace for 6 weeks day and night and 6 months just at night. That's to make sure the finger stays straightened out. He's not looking forward to that, but his finger is getting progressively worst. I'll get a before pic when I get a chance.
And that's all for now.

  1. We used to see lots of baby ducks in NC.
    Here, not so much, with the alligators and snapping turtles, though I imagine there are some somewhere.
    We do see the occasional baby rabbits - which I expect the owls appreciate.
    Hope the surgery goes well.
