Kim at our neighbors with a scruffy barn kitten.


Thousands of migrating snow geese.

  1. that scruffy barn cat looks like our cat Jose!

  2. I'm a bit of a word person and I'm curious about your use of the term, "porcupine tree". Where did your first hear this term? What areas of the country do you think it is in common use? any idea where it comes from?

  3. voyage- hello do I know you? :) The term porcupine tree is something I have always thought was used in more places than just my family, but now I am not sure! I like to add links to my posts, and when I looked up porcupine tree, all I got was some freaky looking band, not a tree at all! I have always known this term to refer to a tree that a porcupine lives in and eats bark off of, making it bumpy looking and eventually killing it. Now that I have done that search, I don't think there are any areas of the country where it is in common use! I will ask my dad and comment here again if I find out any different. I have no idea where the term came from, but I will ask my dad that as well.


Your comments make my day, thank you!
