Dear Gabe,

Look what we spotted on Saturday when we went downrange for rabbits.  Okay, its not a great picture but its a bald eagle!  It was a gazillion miles away but dad, with his new glasses, spotted it from the road.  Silly me thought I could actually sneak up on it.  I got maybe 250 yards away when it decided that I was close enough and it took off.  This was the best I could do with my zoom.  I need a bigger zoom since I obviously suck at stalking.  By the way, we now have 4 rabbits in the freezer.  Not quite enough for a bunny-burger party.  There's one weekend left.  Hopefully the gang will get a few more.

Dad started his job at range control yesterday.  He seemed so happy when he got home.  He says that was the most relaxed he has been at work for years.  I'm so happy he finally got his dream job.  Now all we need is for him to get his dream paycheck so I can quit again and concentrate on my dream job of being lazy.

I'm off for the next 3 days so I'm going to take off to the ponds for some pictures.  I haven't been there in a little while and miss it.  The geese are back, as are the ducks.  I imagine it won't be too long before we start seeing babies again.  I can't wait.  I love spring!

Take care son.  Miss you, love you always,

Mom
