Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da Life Goes On

Had not heard of film "Yesterday" until a week ago.  A suggestion related to it appeared on YouTube shortly after I was looking for John Lennon songs there.  Our public library had a copy.  After watching the DVD this morning, I'm grateful to have had it brought to my attention and want to share it with everyone now.

Below is the ticket I saved from my high school days when my friends and I were at Candlestick Park in San Francisco for the Beatles' final concert.

Listen to the birds and watch for a man on cross-country skis.

We had some snow and temperatures in the teens and then it warmed up and rained.  There may be a little more snow before spring but not much.  During the snowy time I saw a pair of raptors who perched in a cottonwood tree to the northeast of my porch for a sustained period of time as well as a green-winged teal (hard to see -- third from right) walking on the frozen pond with several mallards.  I don't know that I've ever seen a green-winged teal from my porch before.

I LOVE your video. Those birds singing so beautifully like that with the snow coming down, I don't know why but it brought tears to my eyes. A lovely minute of life there. It was so cool to see the man on cross-country skis, like a momentary mirage... a dream. I also love that you saw The Beatles. Wow! Seriously, Wow!
