December is approaching faster than a jet airliner that's just inches from touching the tarmac.
To say I've been distracted would be putting it mildly and I'm sure I'm not totally alone in feeling this way. So today I'll keep it short with few words and two photos that I've taken of a local bird called an Anhinga. The Anhinga is an excellent fisher-bird but lacks the oil glands to keep its feathers dry therefore it needs to spread its wings after each dip to allow them to dry.
How are your preparations going for this wonderful, though at times frazzling, time of year ? Have your shopping list all checked off? Cards ready to be mailed? Baking all done? Tree up and house decorated? As for myself, all I can say is; "How I wish!" :)
