grouse and...

this old house
is an old, old friend
  these 130 year old stairs
are steep and scary
at the top is ugly wallpaper and wasted space 
~~~
 a morning visitor
in the front yard
ruffed grouse are quick steppers
staying away from 
spooky stuff
~~~
happy birthdays 
to aimee
to wendy
forever beautiful
dear friends.
