Hearts At Valentines

 Slowly, things do come back to me.  Dad's ring was made from a silver dime.  It had hearts around the ring.  So pretty.  The other ring was made from a quarter not a nickel.  He made it for Clayton.  Clayton was born while he was overseas and he had never seen him.  So the second ring was Clayton's.  Helen thinks Clayton gave it to Tony, but I do not know that for sure.  Clayton's ring was a man's ring and was smooth.  Both rings were works of art, but maybe only to the sisters!  Helen says she wears a size 6 ring.  Slender fingers.  I have larger bones than Helen or Fleta.  Fleta's hands were ruined working in cold water pulling crops and doing other repetitious work at the chicken plant.  I am not sure what size ring I wear but at least a 7.  I have big, fat fingers!
 I asked Fleta to buy Helen a seed feeder.  So glad she still heeds what I ask for.  It took a while but she got it at Tractor Supply, I think and yes, as I thought, Helen loves it.
 Helen's feeder is like the one below.  She has a yellow tinge bird and I think it is a Finch, but am not sure.  She said she saw no red headed birds so it isn't a purple Finch.  Whatever little Finch it is--they are loving the new feeder.
 This feeder is neat, but the basket yellow one is the most sturdy and most inexpensive.  Helen, the birds on the one below are Finches.  I love them.  Finches are song birds.  I always think, "the Lord wants me to feed the little Finches".   They are shy birds, the kind that need a helping hand.

 These are Blue Bird feeders.  Blue Birds eat berries, worms and bugs.  You can see these are I think what they call "mealy worms".  The Blue Birds love them as do the Purple Martin.  My Martins should be here within a month.
Was looking in my pictures and saw this one of one of the girls at the beach.  I think it is Sig but so unsure.   They melt together in my mind.   I like the freedom and movement of the picture.
My blood clot is better.   All the blood is seeping out into my leg tissue.  I hope I can have the vein removed when summer gets here.   I have not walked a lot and the reason is it hurts a bunch.  I try not to complain and try to focus on my blessings not my misfortunes.

Now, I am doubting myself...Clayton's may have been a half dollar.
You could see the writing inside the ring and tell it was a coin,
but on the outside it was polished silver.

If only Sister Patsy were alive, she would tell me all about the ring thing!
