A topless day recently.
This is when I really, really love having a JEEP.
Well, I really, really love having a JEEP all the time, but you get my meaning.

Besides topless JEEPs, blue flag is yet one more sign that spring is here.

The chickadee breaking in the Christmas bird house on the porch is another welcome sign. I can hear peeping in there now, so I think things are going pretty well for the new renters.

This is Bear giving his, "It's awesome outside Dad, look at my pensive face, feel the power of my thoughtful expression, ...AND TAKE ME OUTSIDE!"

It works every time.
... and he knows it.

Not many animals hibernate in Florida, but the rare Coquina beast was spotted emerging from her den recently. She did not pee on her shadow, so that means winter is officially over.

Spring is a time to run through sun-warmed mud in your own pond.

It's a time for bouncing off your buddy too.

I've gone topless a couple of days in G-ville already, but it will be good to do it more consistantly! Love the new picture in your header!

Your spring is sending a few tentative fingers up to Missouri too. I think this weekend things will burst.

I just the pics of Coquina! So reminds me of my days with my chocolate lab. Even when they are being ornery, that face makes your heart melt. It's hard to be in a bad mood around a puppy, they magically make smiles appear.

Since we are in the midst of housebreaking I can appreciate the pee on the rug comment. Sigh.

It's a great time to be a Floridian!
Well, okay, anytime is great for that.
But the back roads are blooming, the birds are everywhere, the fish are biting.
What more could we want?
