Yoga schedule June 25th through June 30th

Update: I have my new hip. It is a great new hip. New hip on Monday, the 18th. Home the 19th. Gretchen was here to be the nurse for the week. That made this whole process easy. I am up and around some. I am going to teach this week. But I am shortening, or keeping all classes 1 hour. I will be sitting while I teach and I am still using the crutches to get around. ...

This is Harry, the broad wing hawk from 2016. A fledgling, he had fallen out of the nest and couldn’t fly and had a bum wing. He made it to the new field and we, (Chuck) fed him mice trapped around the property. By the end of the summer he had healed and flew south. See more below.

So, there are a couple broad wing hawks around this summer. But the hawk population seems low. Look around your place, we have way more red squirrels and chipmunks. Do you?
