And this is how most mornings start, sunshine smiling down and birds and cats waiting for a handout! The cats like to eat on the back porch, the birds like their breakfast table stump and birdseed.
In the background ducks swerve through the water and sometimes a heron can be spotted on that little island of grass beyond the sandhills if you look hard enough. The cardinals actually are the first birds I hear in the morning darkness and the last birds I hear before going in when it is almost dark after fishing. Mooches all of them!  All day there is something stirring. Ringo the stripe tailed cat can be bad at times, attempting to nab a bird, but the other cats don’t bother.
And this is how my day starts always with a smile, how can you beat that…
