Red Cardinals and Root Beer Floats

I have been laxing on this blogging thing as of late. To be honest at the end of the day I just don’t have the energy or want to blog. I know this is like death in the blog world, but hey I didn’t start this thing to win awards or anything.

Having said that I have had some pictures on the camera for a while that I thought I would share with ya. I actually also do have two recipes but we shall see if i get them done today or not.

It is still winter here (calling for 1-3 inches of snow over night tonight) and that means few birds, except what my Grandma always called the winter birds.

These are cardinals, blue jays, and other little birds that don’t  fly south. Gina and I got a nice bird feeder from the tractor supply store a month or so ago and boy has it attracted the birds, or rather the feed in it has. The other day I saw these two fat male cardinals and had to get a picture of them, because their color was so loud compared to the blah of everything else in a winter state.

I will give you a minute to think…..

If you guessed or knew West Virginia you would be CORRECT!

Now you are wondering what do these cardinals and root beer floats have to do with each other? Absolutely nothing, with the excpetion of they were both here recently.

My Aunt Linda (who lives in Texas) ordered cookies from Gina for Girl Scouts and told me that her husband, Uncle Bill said to buy the kids some root beer. So I did and we had some leftover ice cream, vanilla, and well one of the few things my father ever made for my brother and me to eat were root beer floats.

So here are some pictures of them having root beer floats, which Uncle Bill told me to buy and which Aunt Linda provided the funds for…..
