Maybe Wedding Doves Migrate

A year ago I wrote this post about a white dove that lives in a tree that I pass each day as I walk home from work. It was gone for many months, and I just assumed it died. But today, it was there again, and I had a nice chat with it, welcoming it back.

And speaking of animals, this is what greeted us in the hallway yesterday morning. I guess I really should be more careful about leaving the back door open. (Gary caught it and put it outside.) We've noticed a marked increase in the number of toads this season--must be due to the very rainy weather we've had this year.

Photos from Honduras, Hurricane Felix Relief

These are photos Andrew sent from his recent work.

I'm also trying a new thing with embedding a slide show. (You might be asked to download a flashplayer.)

(I'd appreciate comments to tell me if the slide show thing works, if it takes too long to download, etc.)
