Swan Link(s)….


I awoke to an email with this picture from my parent’s neighbor John.  Thank You John!  My parents live just two houses down and every year these swans come around daily, knocking on cottage doors for bread.  Ok, they don’t have to knock.  Are there one or two swan families this year, John?  We usually have a North and South clan…rivals, of course.  We’ve seen a few gang fights take place out on the middle of the lake too, staking territory.  Oh, I could go for a cup of coffee on Mom and Dad’s deck this morning.  We’ve solved more than a few of the world’s troubles looking at that lake and those trees over there….missing you guys today.
