He and his wife, Celia, are friends of our daughter and her husband.
In the years since we first met “Theu,” he has retired and has become a phenomenal photographer of birds in his region.
Gérald Theurillat has a FaceBook page where you can see more of his wonderful photos and learn the names of these gorgeous animals. I recommend you visit him there if you love birds as I do, and if you want to learn more.
Leave a comment on Theu’s FB page – and tell him “JanBeek sent me.”
Have a Wonderful Weekend, my friends.
Today is the day Bob & I pack and get ready to leave this beautiful spot.
We’ll leave early tomorrow morning. Pray for our safe travels, okay? Next destination is Turlock, in central California, where I graduated from Turlock Union High School back in 1957 (yes, I know… that makes me ancient!) – But, no, I don’t feel old!
(BTW, I get to meet on Monday with a bunch of my class of ’57 girlfriends. Ain’t that a fun thing to anticipate?)
Like Theu’s beautiful birds, I still am soaring high and loving every minute!
Visit Gérald Theurillat ‘s website and let him know you appreciate his wonderful photography as much as I do.
Thanks for visiting JanBeek. Send your friends, will you?
I’d like to have 1,000 followers for the fun of celebrating the announcement of my 1,000th post.
Yesterday I promised I would send you a video of Liam and me playing at my sister’s Masonic Home. My niece, Jodie, recorded videos and took these pictures. Thanks, Jodie!
Now, as Thanksgiving approaches, we plan to celebrate with dinner out – and then our first opportunity to see a performance of Les Miserables! Thanks to Jodie & Bill… what a wonderful gift!
Have YOU had a chance to see that production?
This afternoon I am sitting and watching the birds find food here in Pennsylvania. I pray with God’s grace, tomorrow we will be looking for birds in our Montana snow. They won’t be these colorful ones… but we’ll be happy with whatever feathered friends we find.
What kinds of birds do you have in your area this time of year?
My sis, Sally, lives at the Masonic Village. It’s a lovely place. We enjoyed a tour this afternoon.
A lovely sitting area near the entrance… and a beautiful meeting room where church services are held each Sunday:
Bob & I had lunch with my sis at her home’s “Friendsgiving” celebration.
The staff really got into the spirit by dressing up for the occasion. Then we went home – and were greeted by cheery Lily.
Jodie’s standard poodle, Lily, was smiling to Hello. Such a sweet pup!!
Then Mary, their sheepadoodle, came to join in the greeting. Such beautiful dogs.
We were greeted also by a variety of their chickens… fascinating!! I wonder which one of these provided the eggs for our breakfast this morning? The eggs were as varied in color as the chickens are!
Don’t you love this wonderful variety of hens and roosters? Such fun! There are about 80+ birds in Liam’s flock.
And Liam has a business selling “Liam’s Great Eggs.” He has a growing clientele… can’t even keep up with the demand! Come on, hens, keep on layin’. This is such a great learning opportunity for us all!
It has been two years since my sister moved to Pennsylvania to be by her daughter, my niece Jodie.
When I last saw my sister, I knew she had the beginning stages of dementia, but it has progressed rapidly since then. Nevertheless, of course, she recognized me right away! We enjoyed time with her at a Chinese lunch yesterday. Today we will have lunch with her at her Masonic Home.
Last night we went to a Boy Scout Thanksgiving dinner. My grand-nephew, Liam, and his dad provided one of the turkeys.
Liam is proud to be a member of the Sewickley Boy Scout troop.
