Today Cindy and Barb drove all the way down here for a visit. They came with pictures of Mickey, which made Scott teary, and a bag of cookies from Candy that made Scott very very happy!!! They also brought the most beautiful gift I have ever received. It is a life sized carved pileated woodpecker that Scott commissioned from the artist Tom Tittl in Manitowoc. Never in my life would I have thought I would own something so beautiful. Scott knows me better than anyone has. My love of birds, love of things locally made and love of things not made of plastic, all in one. Thank you Husband. I love you like no other.
