Tracks, Scanner, Links, and an Update on Fundraiser for Amy

Thanks, Upupaepops, for confirming the jack rabbit tracks. I took this picture late Monday, after the snow had melted for a while, and it was clear then that the animal was light-weight. My tracks to the right and the coyote tracks, as well, had melted to the ground, while these had not. 

Thanks, Sandra, for the scanner advice. I have Photoshop, but not in this computer. I installed the scanner with no problems, but it won't scan. I just haven't taken the time to look into it. With both hubby, me, Soldier and Samson on medicines, I kept forgetting to give Angel hers. As you can see, her nose got worse for it. She has discoid lupus and if this happens to your dog, please check out Natural Canine's homeopathic treatments. Most vets suggest either steroids (terrible) or antibiotics. You may want to check out their web site for other things for your dog as well: Angel has been using their products for years and is doing very well. (As long as I don't forget to give her the stuff.)

I sat outside yesterday with the dogs and enjoyed the sounds and smells of the melting snow, when a butterfly started to flutter around us. It stayed around all day, but with temperatures in the 20s overnight, I guess it must be gone by now. 

There is still some snow left in the mountains and on the north side of the junipers. 
I know some of you, my dear blogger friends, helped raise funds for Amy, who is fighting melanoma. And kept her in your prayers too. Yesterday, I finally went to their blog to see what happened after the close of the fundraiser. There I found a heartfelt thank you letter from Amy herself, letting us know that she and Sylvia have moved into a small house in San Diego. I know how difficult it was for Sylvia to do this and for Amy to realize and accept what Sylvia had done. I shared with Amy something that my blogger friend Dee Ready said to me: "There is a grace in accepting help, money or other needed things." Or something to that effect. And Amy really needed the help, so thank you for keeping her in your prayers and contributing to them so they could rent a home of their own.
I have to work on income taxes today and hope to get to my emails tomorrow. I know there must be hundreds of them as I haven't done a thing with them for a month now. So, if anyone wrote to me, it will be a while before I will get back to you.
So much for my idea of having a wordless photo blog during the month of March!!!
