Yes! It's finally spring where I am! No more of this (taken on a day when the power went out):

And no more having to run in this stylish ensemble (also the beard is gone).

The peacocks have come out in full dress.

Here is one silently (strictly in the aural sense) stalking a potential mate.

The peacocks and peahens like to roost up high. Many of them take advantage of the trees. This isn't all of them, but it's quite a few. I'm pretty sure there are peahens in there as well, but they're not as easy to see.

Actually, at the moment, the peacocks drastically outnumber the peahens, and we only have a handful of peahens.

Before too long, if these numbers don't change, we may be looking at the last of the peacocks.

The last of the peacocks in our yard, at any rate.

Finally, this is Noname (Noh-nah-mee).

He plays fetch.

Ok...If I saw you running behind me on a path dressed like that, I think I would shit in my pants. If you were in your van dressed like that, I think I would call homeland security. It's a good thing that we know that you are a sweet person.

I hadn't considered it, but now that you mention it, I do look a *little* scary in that photo. Fortunately, if you saw me in context, a lone figure running on the shoulder of a two lane highway (hence the hunter vest) in the midst of winter weather, you would simply see me as pathetic. :)

I definitely miss all you guys. I hope to see you soon.
