Flight of Fancy

Why do weekends fly by so quickly?! I probably could have accomplished more today but I keep getting sidetracked watching a live-cam feed of baby bald eagle hatchings in Decorah, IA. Pip one and two have hatched and mama is feeding them. Eaglette number three is still in his shell. I named them even though I know that this is FORBIDDEN! They are: Alfred, Buster, and yet to be hatched Cheddar.

How is this for coincidence? The designer of the image is Bird from Bird's Cards.
