|Wishing everyone a great 2017!|
JANUARY- Rob and I started our 2016 by going birding on new years day because I wanted to hand feed some Chickadees.
|Getting that "Chickadee Feeling" was a great start to the new year.|
|A Gray Jay, always my Algonquin highlight.|
|Ashlee's 16th birthday.|
|I do love bowling, and this was for a good cause.|
|Never a dull moment at home with these two!|
|My 250th Lifer! A Kirtland's Warbler...she caused quite a frenzy in the Park. (Rarity for the park)|
|The "Kitty Walk", keeping our cats and the birds safe.|
|Our fur babies, before and after 1 year after adopting them.|
|Celebrated my 47th birthday at the Woodbine Racetrack with Rob.|
|Rob, Ashlee and I at Niagara Falls.|
AUGUST- Probably the worst thing to happen all year was me being diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my left knee. It started bothering me the end of April. After X-rays, a MRI and visits to see an orthopedic surgeon, I was diagnosed the end of June, but it took me until August to accept it. I'm hoping with some lifestyle changes I will not need a new knee cap for a long, long time, if at all.

|The view from our room at Sir Sam's.|
|Boiled lobster, fiddle music and Keith's beer!|
|Me with my usual "roomie", Pat.|
|Can you see the Owl? (no flash used as to not blind the little guy)|
All in all, it was a pretty good year. Every year is full of ups and downs, and I wish you all more ups than downs in 2017.
