This was supposed to be Bird Week

There was a front page article in The Capital Journal earlier this week about a Bald Eagle presentation today. We made plans to go, and headed out this morning for the hotel/conference center. There were no Bald Eagles, but I did get cupcakes from what is probably the only fancy bakery in town.

Pretend that this is a picture of our majestic national bird.

Had we read the paper yesterday, we would have noticed the article about how the group bringing the Bald Eagles from Minnesota was snowed in, so the presentation was cancelled. Instead, we went anyway expecting birds of prey and ended up experiencing the area's home show which consisted mainly of RVs, competing Girl Scout cookie tables, a dancing penguin, and representatives from every pyramid-scheme home-sales business in the tri-county area. At least I got cupcakes.
