Day 177, June 26, 2012

The turkeys are back again.
This is what I saw when I looked out my
bedroom window when I woke-up
this morning! 

Day 176, June 27, 2012

Amazing, the turkeys are back again!
There are more than I thought yesterday.
The biggest surprise is that they can fly.
Many sitting in the trees in the wetlands.
Also, they keep track of each other, as one flew
off when Hank chased him and the others all
went the other way.  The group called
 out to him and a few went back for
him as well.  The one Hank chased made
 his way around the house and got back
with his family and off they wobbled.

Going back to look for his brother...

All together and ready to move on...

Sharon has decided to learn to quilt.
Very excited to have a partner.
Today's lesson, cutting with a rotary cutter.

Well, we are feeling pretty lucky.
The plants we planted a few weeks ago
are still in their pots and are doing
great.  So, we have decided to press
 our luck and plant these near the
front door, time will tell...
Hank, please leave them alone.

Day 170, June 19, 2012

If you have to go to a meeting, can't think
of a better place to have a meeting!
NNW meeting to approve next year's
board members.  I will no longer have
 a position on the board, but will always
be thankful for the friends I have made
with Neighbors and Newcomers of Westport!!!
And, I am a member forever, as I served
as President and many other roles
throughout the years.

Day 169, June 18, 2012

Lea contacted me through and
told me about this book written by my great, great
grandfather, Solon Hyde, he was with the 17th Ohio
Volunteer Infantry.  Not only is it an amazing
account of his fighting in the Civil War, but also
his capture and imprisonment by the Confederacy.
The information in this book opened-up my
family tree and I was able to trace the "Hyde"
side of my family back to the 1500's.
They spent many years in CT, who knew?
Thank you Lea!!!
