Today is my son Cory and his wife Jamie's first wedding anniversary. Happy Anniversary! I love you guys.
Appropriately enough, the doves returned to my courtyard today. I bought this townhouse in September of 2002. In the spring of 2003, I had one gray dove move into my patio under my philodendron. He stayed a few weeks and then left. The next year, I had two doves. This year I have four. The first year, I was sad when he left but now that I know they'll return, I won't be sad this year. I am a bit concerned, however, about what will happen to my courtyard dove-wise by the Spring of 2010.
The temperature for the last two days has been in the upper 90's and we've only had about nine inches of rain so far this year. The doves crap on one particular chair and nowhere else. Not under the chair, on the chair. I think the original 2003 dove must have told his friends, "Coo coo coo. Coo coo." Translation: "Hey, I know a place that's cool and shady and has a great crapper. Follow me!"
