TODAY I HEARD THE FIRST FEEL-GOODS ...

SOLD !!!

This is how we call the red-breasted robins in my house, the feel-goods.

Don't you think it is quite an appropriate name?

Next time they sing a song in your yard, stop and listen to what they have to say...

You will hear the words ...

feeeeeeeel good, feeeeeeeel good!

I heard the robins today, for the first time this year, which means they are back from their winter vacation already... which means spring is not very far ...

And it makes me feel real good!

Tell your kids my story about the feel-goods, they will love it!

313 is the number of comments I got on my One World One Heart giveaway post !!! I never thought so many people would come and visit my blog on this occasion! What a wonderful happening !

Now the time has come to announce the winner !

Oh yes ~ robins are my favorite birds, too! Whenever I hear them sing, I stop what I am doing and listen to their beautiful song. I have done this since I was 6 years old!

I haven't seen or hear them yet here in Wisconsin, but they can't be that far away if you have heard them already.

Take care,
Angela

I have one little robin that has been here all winter. I don't know how he survives. After each big storm I hold my breath wondering if I will see him near my feeder again and there he is, eating the wee crabapples still left on the tree!
