It seems that I've been busy
A lot on my mind
while I carve and tweak
small carvings for a special order
I've been keeping a secret ....
but now I can share it with you....
It is a cold dark night
The heavens open
and much to my daughter's consternation
we follow the children onto the veranda
Why are we outside in a blizzard?
J has found a bird nest with babies in it
Come and look
My daughter puts on her happy face
and goes out into the rain
The nest is in a ticky creeper at eye level
She peers into the nest
Her face registers shock
My future son in law
drops to his knee
She says yes
