Spring has finally arrived at Casa Tipton y Kelly here in the beautiful coastal plains of southern Delaware! After the extended cold temps of the winter I began to despair that the warm temps would ever arrive.
|Purple Martin house - they can't wait!|
Bill cleaned out our Purple Martin house yesterday and before he even got the house all the way up on the pole, three Purple Martins landed on their summer home. Bill says he hates all the noise that the Purple Martins make but to me, listening to their raucous cacophony is music to my ears. I especially like seeing them gliding through the sky in circles above their house.

The robins are here as well as the swallows. Bill said he saw a bluebird a couple of weeks ago but I haven't seen any. Their house is here waiting for them. Until last year the bluebirds usually raised two bunches of bluebirds each summer. Last year though they had too much competition from the swallows and sparrows.

I work tonight at the hotel then I have the rest of the week off. I've already made my reservation for next year's Bloggerpalooza. Yes folks, I will be staying on the premises. This way I can have a few drinky poos (prefer martinis and margaritas) without having to worry about driving home. Also, I can make the rounds of the different hospitality suites. By the way, Dr. Spo and Someone said they will rent the Captain's Quarters which was worked so well as the hospitality suite last year.

You all don't have to make reservations yet but if you plan on coming you should reserve your room by the end of the year. Also, let me know who wants to go on the Dogfish Brewery Tour. There is no charge but the tour dates do fill up fast. And........I have some great new fun plans for next year's get together. Yes, I can TOP last year's Bloggerpalooza. Some people can sing, some people can change a tire (I can't do either) and then some people can put together a fun event. That's what I do folks. And I love it!

Have a great day!
