A few weeks ago Woody Woodpecker(Pileated Woodpecker) came to visit our home. Normally, when they see me they fly in the opposite direction, but I tricked him this time and dressed up in a Woodpecker costume. It is Halloween, but I am just kidding. I was lucky to take a nice picture of this Pileated Woodpecker traveling up a tree looking for bugs. You can tell he is a male by the small red strip under his eye, which is missing on females. These birds are fairly large (16” long) and are a bit shy. They are common in the southeast and like mature woods. You will know they are around by the large oval holes in trees and the wuck, wuck calls they make. In spring you may see a pair flying together. Sometimes I have a pair that nests nearby our home. Also, checkout my humor tab above, you will laugh. Comments are always welcome too. Enjoy!

It all started on one fall day when Callie, 4 years old, noticed that her 1 ½ year old sister had a poo diaper. Now Callie had watched her mother change diapers before and decided that she could also change diapers, but better. She quickly and secretly took Sarah to her room, found a new diaper and started the poo change process. As she removed the poo diaper, she apparently discovered that there were no wipes around. Now what do you think a 4 year old will do in this situation? Very simple, find the nearest object around and start wiping. After Callie completed the good deed, a new problem surfaced: What to do with the evidence? There's a very obvious solution, toss everything under the bed and no one will ever know. The next day a bad, bad, bad smell came from Callie's room. Karen my wife and their mother, made a complete search of Callie's room to determine where the smell was coming from. Finally the discovery, it appears that pooh bear was used to clean up Sarah and was tossed under the bed. Now that's how a woman found bear pooh under the bed!

It all started one fall day while coming home from work. As I started to open the front door of our home, I would find 4 or 5, folded sheets of paper out on the steps. I wondered who was trashing the front porch. I found out that Sarah, 4 at the time would scribble a stamp, an address, fold the paper in half and toss it out on to the front porch for the mailman to pick up. It was written in green, red or blue crayon and normally had a heart inside. Sarah believed that if she tossed her mail out of the front door, the mailman would pick it up. Wouldn't it be great to scribble a crayon stamp on a letter and toss it out and the mailman picks it up? Well, Sarah seems to think so from watching us do the mail, however she didn't completely understand the concept. I enjoyed coming home finding Sarah's, crayon mail on the porch. It was very cute and sweet but hard to read.
