Blue sky with side orders

Thank you for your best wishes about my dad’s health. Recovery will be slow, but at least it’s going in the right direction.

It was mild when I was in England, so now I present:

Blue sky with a side order of…

Palm tree (outside my parents’ house);

Palm tree

Love birds on antennas

Birds

And street lamp with reflection.

Let’s spare a kind word and smile — or extend an invitation — to those feeling alone or depressed during this holiday season.
