Happy Easter!

"The joy of loving Jesus comes from the joy of sharing in His sufferings.  So do not allow  yourself to be troubled or distressed, but believe in the joy of the Resurrection.  In all our lives, as in the life of Jesus, the Resurrection has to come, the joy of Easter has to dawn." 

~Mother Teresa

Monday Meows

My name is Oscar and I am very spoiled!  

Here I am in profile.  Aren't I handsome?  Below is my sister.  
I think she is very sweet as well.  We have never been apart.

Four animals that hibernate for the winter

The Black Bear - we have several around here in our woods.  They hibernate for up to 100 days!
 The Box Turtle - again, very common in my part of the country.  They hibernate from 77-154 days!

The Common PoorWill.  Did you know that this bird sleeps the winter away?  They will hibernate under a rock or a log for up to 100 days!  I really like this little bird.

And, finally, since I have have not been here since Fall, I too have hibernated for over 100 days!  The difference is that I have gone to work, taken care of my family, and spent many days under the weather. 
I am glad that spring is here!
