"I tried once to open too many doors at a time, it was unproductive and confusing.
I just learned the last lesson, Dad. I'm supposed to open just one at a time, and only when I reach them along the path, this 'hike' we are taking. That's when the key fits, and opens the lock perfectly, every time. Thank you, Dad. I love you, and miss you. I am blessed with an amazing husband now, he holds my hand as we walk along paths too. We are climbing a little steeper now, with more effort, and thinner air. But I'm not worried. I am looking up. I am living in the moment, being now. Because when we get to the next door, along our path, I know, Dad, . . . that key is going to fit, perfectly!"

Funny how staying up for 24 hours is not as easy as it used to be! Woodpecker deconstruction sounds filled the air, as we relaxed on the lanai. This little rascal really gave me a Paparazzi run for my money!

I remembered quickly, I was not on Illinois plush lawns, but standing among the Fire Ants! YOW! Luck helped me snag some shots of this Pileated Woodpecker anyway. He tree hopped as if it were last call at the pub! What a Hot Shot!

We are trying to sop up as much Picnic as we can. It sticks to our ribs like Grandma's homemade gravy & the last of her buttermilk biscuits. It is so beautiful here, a true paradise.

Oh, cool! Blush~humbled, smile! So glad you liked them. Burned a few calories snapping these pics! :)
Thank you, shitake, for the read, watch, and compliment! It's very easy to stumble upon beauty here at the Picnic~
