Notes about Friends


DASHMANN and SKUZZA - In Florida for the week.

PAT W. - ANNOUNCEMENT: Mar 26. "Hey, Look! The water didn't freeze in the bird bath last night."

LIAM - three months old, he can now reach out and grab with his right hand, and he's aware of the source of sounds, so he turns to look at them.

IRISH MIKE - very eager to get the boats out on the river, the crews assembled, and the oars working.

MARSHA - one of the drawbacks to spring in the south east is this,
pine pollen, which accumulates by the tons, shown here washed into run-off from a rain storm.
It covers everything.
