Alfonso does his Canada Goose dance through the grasslands as birds large and small abandon nests or cross borders, and the algae and milkweed bloom.

Ziggy: Why, just look at this feather, Ivy! Isn’t Mother Nature bewitching? Ivy: Yeah, pure enchantment. Now gimme a hand, Zig, I nearly got this thing dismantled.

Now just to mix it up, you can start on her scarves, like the silk ones with the hand-beading?  […]

He showed us various buildings, including his own, once housing his medical practice (now retired), and when departing, gave me […]
