Week 7 of 52, 2017 52 Week Project

Week 7 of 52: Mandarin Duck, they have named him Andy this time and hopefully his new mate Ann.

The female does not look like the reference photos of a female mandarin, but doesn’t look like any other duck I have seen either.  Hoping it is a young Mandarin female that hasn’t developed her markings yet.

Life is good and I am blessed!

Layla Visits the Fort Worth Stockyards

Took my sister and Dave to the Stockyards at Fort Worth.  I was super excited when Matt, Ashly, and Layla decided to join us.  Layla was really brave and rode Big Jake and enjoyed the cattle drive!  She is growing up so fast!

Day with family, Priceless!  

Life is good and I am blessed!
