Because it is Friday, here is a light post.

I want to introduce you to my “nature” neighbors, some of the animals I have seen in our yard since we moved to Texas.

Something that I really like in America, is the proximity you can have with nature. Many of my fellow citizens who have never visited the U.S. tend to think that America is all buildings. But here you can live 30 miles from a big city (like Austin or New York) and see deers cross your back yard. In Westchester county, we had rabbits, deers, groundhogs, and of course, chipmunks.

Here are our new neighbors.
