  1. If I could see, up close, a pond full of Wood Ducks. Especially when the males are in their full color. Then I would take ever so many photos of them.
  2. Having a scrambled egg and bacon on bagel sandwich with a side of veggies. Actually that’s on tonight’s menu! Oh and the bagel is not toasted, but does have mayo. The egg scramble has parsley, salt, freshly ground pepper and a dash of chili powder. And maybe some cumin.
  3. Having the pandemic over, gone, done with. As if it never was…
