Hello everybody! This is The Daily Bone and I'm your optimistic doggie reporter
Chester L. W. Spaniel.
As you know, we're still dealing with that virus thing. We are all staying home as much as possible, and staying away from other humans. But you can't keep WNY people from enjoying some actual Spring-like weather when we finally get it. So today it seemed like the whole neighborhood was out walking: sometimes just one person, sometimes couples, and sometimes whole families. They smiled and waved at each other when they passed (keeping six feet apart, of course.) Oh, and I've never seen so many doggies either! And kids on bikes, roller skates, skateboards, and scooters too!
|Hi pups! Bark bark!|
Speaking of six feet apart, our friend Barf at the Wild Wings Bird Sanctuary was glad to demonstrate how far six feet is:
My Joanna human used to volunteer there and says Barf is actually a very nice, polite turkey vulture. If you tell him he's handsome, he'll open his wings and preen his beautiful feathers. If you'd like to know more about Barf and his birdie friends, go to WildWingsInc. Be sure to scroll down a ways to see the video of Barf.
We looked around the garden and spotted the very first grape hyacinths blooming. These ones are kind of early because they're growing right under the dryer vent where they stay nice and warm.
The grackles are still here. They spend the whole day haggling over real estate, and squabbling over mates. My ghostwriter says the devil himself must have taught one of them how to scream like a human, and then sent him to wake her up every morning.
Crummy rotten grackles!

The sky was constantly changing today, with the high winds moving the clouds really fast. In the picture below, a bank of clouds is moving in. The dark spot in the middle is a bumblebee flying by.
|After ten minutes: Wow! Those are thunder storm clouds! *|
|Twenty minutes later,it suddenly got really dark!|
|It began to rain and thunder!|
|15 minutes later, things were clearing up nicely!|
Dinner time! Beef stew and mashed potatoes. Yum!
Later in the evening we saw a spectacular sunset!
It's time to relax now, isn't it? Nope!
We checked our computer and found some beautiful illustrations from our friend Sunny.
We love the big, jolly characters she creates!
This one looks a bit like me!
On top of that, we got pictures of the grand kids Lily and Ryan!
|Going for a walk.|
|Reading a funny book.|
Looks like they're doing OK! Anything else?
No, don't turn the TV on! Let's not ruin this great day with all that bad news! It's NOT the end of the world (again) no matter how dire the News media makes it seem!
Good night to a good day!
* We wanted to show you this picture again. After we looked at it some more, we were able to see at least four little doggie faces in those thunder clouds. Can you find them?
