There is not a whole lot to brag on this week. Weather is starting to turn back colder and a possibility of the dreaded white fluff this past Sunday night.
It was good to get back on my regular Saturday schedule, with a noon meal and hopefully some good bird sightings. Our trip took us out to Cairo Bend Road where many memories flooded my mind.
I have not heard from one single person complaining about the warm spell that began Sunday. It was so comfortable this morning that I didn't even wear my jacket in when I went to church at the Rocky Valley Baptist Church, on the Old Murfreesboro Road, south of Lebanon.
My usual Saturday morning ritual went according to plan, thanks to Anthony Grays appointed time to dig out the money to buy us our favorite Chinese dinner at Pekings.
Ah, warmer weather at last. I don't do cold good any more, and now I am in hopes that the groundhog didn't see his shadow this past Sunday.

After waking up on Thursday morning, several of us discovered an open patch of water directly behind the Blue Bank Resort, where a group of duck hunters had left at about four O'clock, blazing a path through the ice field that encompassed the entire lake.

All along Reelfoot Lake, there are numerous pull offs and other areas from where one might launch their boats. With this southern exposure, the waters were at the mercy of the cold winds and the near "0" temperatures which gave the trees an eerie ghostly appearance as ice formed on the tree branches.
I was so worried that the weather would cause us to cancel our trip out to Reelfoot Lake, which was scheduled for last Wednesday and Thursday.
By the time you get to read this, I hope that I survived the cold arctic air and will be on my way to Reelfoot Lake to watch the Bald Eagles.
