This is way random ...

In the springtime, when I go outside or have my door open, the cardinal (red bird) sings "Chee echo!  Chee echo!  Chee echo!  Dwight Dwight Dwight Dwight Dwight"  I bring this up, and I know it is random, but I just felt the need to share -  my mom is Japanese and one of her sisters is my Aunt Chieko.  That redbird sings her name every day during the spring and EVERY TIME I hear it, I am reminded of my Japanese aunts.

Aunt Chieko (yellow Tshirt), Aunt Chai-chan (pink Tshirt) my mom Kikue, and my aunt Miyako (blue T-shirt). July 2004.

I just don't have a clue who DWIGHT is.  LOL.

That's cool. I have a male & female cardinal couple that sit on my fence every day. They never sing to me though :-(

Oh I don't think that bird is singing "to" me per se.  But he does remind me of my aunts, which makes me smile.

My aunt Chai-Chan is only 6 years older than me.  She was 5 years old when my mom left Japan after she married my dad.  My brother scanned a gazilliion of my dad's slides and here's a cute pic, circa 1957ish.

Mom in yellow with black polka-dot swim suit with her hands on my aunt Chai-Chan's shoulders, and Aunt Chieko, girl on bottom row.  I have no clue who the others are or where Aunt Miyako was that day.
