Family Sundays

Each Sunday, we gather for dinner to share stories and update each other on our comings and goings.  I am blessed to be surrounded by this family.

Spring Birding

Enjoying our new backyard thru a May bird migration

Golden-winged Warbler

Coffee on the deck watching a very active back yard.  A flash in the crab apple gets our attention. On closer look, we find not one but two Golden-winged Warbler

“A boldly marked warbler with a color pattern all its own, Golden-winged Warblers are slim, silvery gray birds with golden flashes on the head and wings. They breed in wet, shrubby tangles of the Upper Midwest and Appalachians, and spend winters in open woodlands and shade-coffee plantations. They have suffered severe population declines in the last half-century.”  http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Golden-winged_Warbler/id

Uncle Fred

Frederick Dean Wilson

Frederick Dean Wilson,
born 16 Feb 1935 in Guthrie, Logan, Oklahoma

My dad’s youngest brother, Frederick Dean Wilson, died peacefully last night in his home in Boerne, TX.  We had the pleasure of visiting Uncle Freddy in March escaping some of the Minnesota cold.  He was a very funny guy, always the sales man.  He leaves behind 2 daughters Cindy and Danna and a son Tony.  Cindy will take over the reins of Fred’s company in Houston, Armor Plate, Inc.
