The Coolest Thing

First let me apologize to my readers for not posting in so long. Life grabbed me by the throat and just keeps squeezing but I'll get into some of that another time.

Tonight, I just want to tell you all the coolest thing that has happened to me in a long while. Friday afternoon I went outside to feed the dogs. While they were eating I thought I'd take a look at my recently planted raspberry bushes to see how they were coming along. I was leaning over and just as I started to straighten up a toucan flew over my head and we bounced off of each other.

The toucan looked like the one in that picture. They nest in the trees around my house for a little while every year.

It was just too cool! It's now Sunday night and I am still grinning over it.

Cheers :-)

Fly by hitting. You don't see that every day. I am grinning, too.

That would be so amazing to see! I am going on a Mission trip to Honduras later this year and I am hoping to see lots of neat wild life.

Thank you for sharing in my SITS day! I appreciate it :)
