Jack is Back in Fawnskin!

Jack Back In Fawnskin

So, the highlight for GG this week was not only seeing Jack, the bald eagle that hatched and fledged right here in Fawnskin last year, but also watching two adult eagles in an aerial mating display.

I first heard them calling out to each other on Saturday, then late Sunday I ventured out onto the deck to see them in aerobatic flight with Jack sitting and watching.

A few times they soared right by him!

It gave me great comfort since here on the party perch the birds have been telling me that it is spring for two weeks now.

Sunday, I actually felt good enough to get out in the garden and discovered an iris coming up beneath the dried debris from last year.

Normally I don’t remove any dead foliage until spring but I was motivated to get out and dig in the dirt.

It was quiet due to Superbowl and I enjoyed being outside in the warmth of the sun.

By the time Jack appeared, it was pretty cold. My mobile phone hates that, so getting loads of pictures is tough.

Grout Creek Fawnskin

Down at Grout Creek things are flowing already.

I don’t particularly remember a February this toasty and am a bit concerned over it but not so much that I fail to enjoy the seasonal splendor.

AND, GG has seen bees, bugs and slugs. Another disturbing trend.

But, the weather has been lovely and I’ve been out on the deck enjoying the warmth and the clear roads and trails.

Wearing sneakers instead of my boots and a t-shirt and only needing a light sweatshirt if there is a breeze is a luxury.

This is nothing to sniff at since my body temperature has been 95-96 degrees F.

But that is another story.

Cell Tower Fawnskin

As for the progress on the update to the local cell tower, it is still a work in process but they are getting close to completing the job.

GG wonders just why her video steaming and cell phone are not faster with the tower just down the road.

Now I have more choices…heh, heh, heh.

I’ll be back Thursday with additional updates in the weekly TOT.

    I just have to tell you that I really enjoy your website! I live in Moonridge, and to keep up with “stuff” on the North Shore of Big Bear Valley, I go to your site first.

    Thanks for all your efforts!
