Sunday Outing

We got the driveway cleared, again, and headed out for a visit at Mom & Dad's house. It was nice getting out of the house.

We took Bounce with us, so that Carla could have a little time at the house without worrying about the puppy. It gave her the opportunity to sleep without being bothered.

Walter packed up the snow shovel and a bag of ice melt and off we went. He jumped right into clearing Mom & Dad's driveway. It didn't take him very long at all and it look terrific when he got done. By the time we were ready to leave the gravel was clearly visible in a large portion of the driveway.

On our way back to the house I was able to get some really neat bird photos. The Bluebird is on the left and Cedar Waxwings are on the right.
