Note from JWR:

One of our family’s favorite activities when we take trips into town is counting eagles. It isn’t unusual for us to see as many as six Bald Eagles on each drive to town–usually for church and home school meetings. And right here at the Rawles Ranch, we regularly see two or three Bald Eagles a day, cruising down The Unnamed River. When I’m out doing chores and I see one flying over, I take off my hat and reflect for a moment. I guess I’m just overly patriotic. I do thank God for all our blessings. And living in a place like this is one of them.
